I’m Too Big But I Love To Play

Fascinating short story by James Tiptree Jr./Alice Sheldon about an immense amorphous alien being who, during a visit to earth, unintentionally wreaks havoc.  From his/her short story collection, Ten Thousand Light Years From Home (1973)

“You can understand why a system would seek information – but why in hell does it offer information? Why do we strive to be understood? Why is a refusal to accept communication so painful?”
