Everyone has one’s own life trajectory; beginning from the birth of our genes, there seems to be an invisible string that runs through our existence. From the blood flowing through our veins to our heartbeats and emotional flickers, we are always pulled by this string——full of twists and turns, this winding string originates from the vast universe; it has floated down here, but will eventually vanish and pass into nothingness.
