TITLE: And it was so
By Jesus Puppy


And it was so.

D14 scanned once more the full data reports showing up on the monitor before him, as well as the interior design systems of his own unique programing. It had been eons ago that the Operations Director; D1, had personally designed and built the D14 android's one of a kind program, a system for searching out information on a being know as Man, a program that began to reason within itself.

Millennia had past since D14 had discovered the final end of man, brought about by the mutations in their odd form of existence; a mutation called Sin. One that caused Man to turn from understanding truth or even seeking to repair the flaws in themselves, but to continue in their own self-willed destruction. He had given his report then, the only work-order program he was ever given, in hopes to prevent the spread of this mutation to the rest of the universe. In that, he had succeeded, but now another problem arose.

As D14 was designed to think for itself, reasoning all possible angles of a given problem, and yet not given farther orders; he began to observe the Universe in-depth. At first it was a self-appointed task of assurance, to verify that the "Sin" mutation had not spread. Then he started seeing a problem, small at that point in time, but slowly growing; the stars were dying out.

As the years past into eons, D14 continued to watch, noticing each change in number of suns throughout the universe. From trillions down to millions, as even more began to burn out across the universe. He had made his report to D1, and plans were made to find a solution to the problem, but until now nothing seemed to provide an answer.

For their own safety Galactic Operations had removed itself to a void space beyond the largest known Black-Hole. A place where time passed without notice; watching, waiting, searching for an answer. As the suns slowly died out one by one, existence winding to the inevitable end of all things, D14 refused to give up. Going over each scrap of available data, searching and researching all knowledge of the make up of existence; he finally knew what could be done.

He worked endlessly over the chemical analysis of forming a new star, the energy patterns had to be precise, with no room for error, no room for doubt. He made his report to the Operations Director, D1, and was given the order to proceed.

The final steps were made, as personal help was given from the Galactic Operations Director to test the final run of the program. Everything was ready, all parts of the program were in place as D14 hesitated over the system control button. He had personally typed in the last four words of the program, and knew it was good. The moment of doubt had past, and with finality D14 pressed the Enter button, and those final words flashed across the darkened void of space. Waves of light expanding to the far reaches of existence.

Those final four words in the program... "Let there be light."

And it was so.

What a fascinating twist on Genesis!

I loved the creativeness of this story--especially the mutation of sin. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks

Wow! This was a very good sci-fi approach to the problem of sin and man's self-destructive tendencies. Almost Ray Bradburyish in its thought! I liked it!
'Past' should have been 'passed' each time you used it, and watch your use of the semi-colon (;). Sometimes you should have used a comma or just made a new sentence.
But I enjoyed this! Good work!

I Robot, oops Android, meets Genesis. A unique twist on creation. Very clever and multi layered. Read it again got more out of it. Well done.
