|This is a book of seven stories about seven missions into seven celestial realms to investigate seven vital components of universal understanding: light, time, gravity, matter, infinity, and science.
The seven folios come wrapped in a map of the universe and feature cosmic explorations through a tale of two characters. The narrator is a traveller through time and space sent to discover the universe in search of what matters. On the back of each folio is a mission dispatch regarding the quest for meaning in the natural forces and phenomena of the cosmos.
Each folio includes layers of translucent exposures. These multi-layered galactic artifacts represent illumination by referencing the time after the creation of the universe when particles coalesced and stabilized between matter and energy, making the universe transparent and allowing light to travel freely through space.
The title of the book refers to a time soon after the big bang, when, a small preponderance of matter over antimatter was produced. this asymmetry gave rise to all that exists in the universe, explaining why we have something, rather than a vast nothingness.
