Quintessence is the journey of a meteor which lands on an uninhabited planet, triggering an evolution of elemental changes that leads to the creation of life, which is an allegory for the birth of an idea. The main source of inspiration rooted from the panspermia theory, which hypothesizes that life on earth originated from microorganisms traveling through space within meteorites from another solar system. Panspermia is a Greek word that means 'seeds everywhere.'
