I have a theory.
A wacky, 2 a.m. can’t sleep theory.
When the universe was created all those many moons ago it was a Big Bang, right? And from the Big Bang came everything we know.

I think they’re still happening all the time.
On a hot day when you look up at the sun and you’re squinting to reduce the discomfort and you’re forced to look away and blink rapidly and in your eyes you see little spots and stars swirling around until your adjust.

On a Friday morning at 2 a.m. as you’re attempting to force your closed eyelids to trigger your body’s sleep cycle and you notice that if you shut your eyes real tight you see little dots of white light and streaks of reds and golds dancing behind your lids.
