The cosmic tardigrade floated through the vast expanse of space, its tiny body absorbing the radiation and extreme temperatures as it drifted along. For eons it had been on this journey, experiencing the vastness and diversity of the universe. But as it drifted, something began to change. It felt a sense of peace and oneness with the cosmos that it had never felt before. It was as though all its wanderings had been leading up to this moment. The tardigrade had achieved a state of nirvana, a transcendent state of enlightenment where it was no longer separate from the universe, but one with it. It knew that it would continue to wander the stars for all eternity, but now it did so in a state of pure joy and contentment.
