strung out at the universal edge

A man and a woman board an immaculate space ship and begin traveling towards the edge of the universe. They accelerate to light speed and beyond, then eventually break the speed of light squared. All is well in the cosmos as space contracts and their velocity approaches infinity. They are in need of nothing, and the collapse core at the heart of their ship pumps easily through the vastness of space. Finally they reach the end of the distant string galaxy, the very beginning of time. They have caught up with the leading edge of the big bang. They turn and listen to the first breath of God, and he says, "I have been behind you all the time."
