An oily, black, spiky sphere sits at the centre of the image. All of a sudden it is shattered by a dull explosion. The particles disperse slowly, heavily, but the preciseness of their trajectories signals the intensity of the impact. The oily substance spatters in all directions, to the outer limits of the image. Then each drop begins heading back in the opposite direction, the particles converging on the same central point. 
The sphere does not show the tiniest wound. The attacks and repeated destruction it undergoes cannot alter it.
