life-length

 

one raised to the eleventh Power (1 ^11) = 100 000 000 000 years

 

how long the Galaxy as we know it today lasts

 

these time-scales take a bit of getting used to, don't they?

 

it's not until a being is

99 999 999 999 years old that it becomes appallingly small

 

there are a few lifetimes worth in there

 

each lifetime more awesome than the next and the next one beckoning, forever beckoning
