The beginning or the end?

 
An image from Millennium: The Beginning and the End.

The Beginning and the End opens with images from outer space, the life of a comet. The same comet appears in the night sky Frank Black is staring into, causing him to contemplate his own destiny and the relevance of the celestial body. In his monologue Frank is considering the "life" of a comet and its analogous relationship to our own existence. Referring to his immediate state, Frank asks, "Is this the beginning or the end?"

In Number, there is one for every life which ever was, or ever will be, And like most lives they wait, for a moment, The Moment. When it will be sent on its journey back towards the yellow Sun. ... Approaching the Sun, brings definitive change... It will never again be the same. Appearing in our skies it is believed to be the prophecy of extraordinary events... ...the birth of Kings, ...the death of Empires.

After Centuries, or Millennia, the Journey must end. Perhaps smothered by its own dust, the dark, soulless body continues eternally through space and time. It may disintegrate and crumble into inconsequential rubble, or may be lost forever, crashing, burning, into the yellow Sun...

And tonight as I look into the sky and it looks back on me, I want to know, which am I? I need to know, is this the Beginning of the Journey, ... or the End...
