Time is the most crucial element of life. It is the determinative denominator that corresponds to survival of each and everything in the world. People evolved, obtained fire, used metals, learned art, fought numerous battles, discovered gravity, flied planes and bombed states. No matter how long, even the hardest substances have tendered and ripened, the strongest dynasties have fallen, the calmest volcanoes have erupted, and animals have gone extinct, great leaders and geniuses have died, and even stars have come to their end. Time has seen the world change from its primitive ways to its technological advancements. Through these advancements, intangible as it is, time can now be held in a case. With Omega, sharing a fraction of time’s immortality, this facet of existence and life can be yours.
