The Brighter the Light,The Darker the Shadows

The brilliant man figured out a way to destroy a planet infested by inferior creatures.. And so he did. He watched from his spaceship as the round object disintegrated, knowing every single inferior creature, they called themselves humans, had ceased to infest. Well, okay, there was the problem of the international space station, but he felt very confident those few would perish soon enough, lacking a teat to suck on. And so he celebrated, with exuberant climax of body and mind.
He hoped he had witnesses, and to his delight another ship soon uncloaked itself. Thank you for your service of life”, said the extraterrestrial creature, beautiful in the ways that every extraterrestrial creature is certain to be beautiful to the human transcendee. And the brilliant man knew exactly why he was being thanked, And the brilliant man smiled, not humbled, but with the pride of knowing something terrible was over, and he had ended it.
The extraterrestrial creature spoke again: We appreciate your mind. Those were the words. And the brilliant man felt externally loved, for the first time, ever, even as he had always loved Himself. The brilliant man knew what to say, he knew what his first words should be. Not Hello or Greetings or I come in peace.
No. He wanted to be understood, he needed to be certain that his lack of humanity was clear. He desired his journey to be understood, and he knew the extraterrestrial creature would understand his words. And so he knew what to say, he opened his mouth to reveal the crooked teeth of a former human child prevented from receiving dental care by his slaveowner mother and father, so many years ago, but really just yesterday, and he said:

The brighter the light, the darker the shadows

And the extraterrestrial creature smiled back. And the brilliant human smiled wider. A successful mind-meld, void of all humanity, for both parties. And everything was okay, in a way it had never been before.
