‘Dad, I’ve been thinking of how relatively insignificant we are.’

He said, ‘Well, what would happen if a plane dropped you in the middle of the Sahara Desert and you picked up a single grain of sand with tweezers and moved it one millimeter?’

I said, ‘I’d probably die of dehydration.’

He said, ‘I just mean right then, when you moved that single grain of sand. What would that mean?’

I said, ‘I dunno, what?’

He said, ‘Think about it.’

I thought about it. ‘I guess I would have moved a grain of sand.’

‘Which would mean?’

‘Which would mean I moved a grain of sand?’

‘Which would mean you changed the Sahara.’


‘So? So the Sahara is a vast desert. And it has existed for millions of years. And you changed it!’

‘That’s true!’ I said, sitting up. ‘I changed the Sahara!’

‘Which means?’ he said.

‘What? Tell me.’

‘Well, I’m not talking about painting the Mona Lisa or curing cancer. I’m just talking about moving that one grain of sand one millimeter.’


‘If you hadn’t done it, human history would have been one way…’


‘But you did do it, so…?’

I stood on the bed, pointed my fingers at the fake stars, and screamed: ‘I changed the course of human history!’

‘That’s right.’

‘I changed the universe!’

‘You did.’

‘I’m God!’

‘You’re an atheist.’

‘I don’t exist!’

    ternyata banyak akibat tak terduga dari hal2 yg tampak biasa, harus ati2 brarti klo mindahin gelas agar tidak mengakibatkan kehancuran dunia (ga keliatan apa hubungannya, tapi who knows 😐 )
