Once upon a time, long before time as we know it, The Source of All That Is, looked out into the dark void of space and imagined the beginning of a most wonderful creation. Then The Source breathed a mighty wind out into the darkness, shooting endless lasers of light, one after another. Some of the beams traveled very far before coming to rest, while others landed quite near. By the time The Source was finished there were millions of bright lights glinting in the darkness and so the stars and planets were born. The Source of All That Is was very pleased. These stars and planets existed for millions of years and some of them became inhabited by many different types of beings. Some beings looked like fish or reptiles, some looked a bit like humans but were grey or blue and had enormous eyes and some of them were very hairy indeed. Some were gigantic while some were our size and there were even others that were quite tiny.
