On the tiniest snowflake you can imagine, lived a speck. On the speck was a cosmos not unlike our own. Within that cosmos lived a orb that contained a colony of creatures not unlike our very selves. Now because they were so small, time operated at a different level for them. A second to us was almost a million years for the colony that lived in the orb. By the time the tiniest snowflake had fallen on a bed of snow the colony had undergone many changes through evolution. By the time the snowflake was melting the colony had reached its limit in resources and was dying. Finally, as the heat of the sun finished its work on the snowflake, the colony became no more.
