Perhaps we could tell the story of such beings... their friends, the friends of their friends, their enemies, the enemies of their enemies, their artifacts, their worlds, their thoughts. The great pursuits through universes between races at war in a meta-universe. Is the SF writer of such a tremendously difficult story to tell already born ;)?
