“The Egg” by Andy Weir

I came across this short story called “The Egg” today and, now that our midterm is over, found it to be an interesting way to look back on everything we’ve studied so far. It’s also just a very interesting approach to the concept of an afterlife.

    This short story really did cover a large amount of course material. I found the last lines particularly interesting. Andy Weir refers to humans as fetuses, bringing us back to cosmology.
