Introduction

The Creator dreams. Within a delicate and shifting dreamscape, a fairy-tale unfolds. He watches as a sphere forms in front of him. It is pure possibility, the elements mixed in an arrangement that has no name, no meaning, but infinite potential. He watches as the sphere, tired of stagnant stability, swells and then explodes, showering an infinite void with fragments of matter. Unbound, the elements swirl in shifting, scintillating patterns. Eventually some draw together, taking comfort in simple unity. Gradually, on a scale slow beyond description, they bond into complex structures. Some make balls of burning light, illuminating the surrounding darkness for the first time in eternity. The word "Sun" comes into the Creator's mind. He continues to watch as the lesser elements are nurtured by the warmth of the "suns," and being nurtured, choose to arrange their motion so as not to depart from these sources of light and warmth. Slowly, tentatively, they coalesce and harden, turning into balls of shifting fluid. ...read more.

They grow in courage, too, and some emerge from the oceans to flourish on the ground. Here begins a great divide, as some choose to worship the beauty of existence in still and silent meditation, drinking the light of the sun and sustaining themselves by drawing strength both from the earth below and from the air above. Others feel the gift of life burning brighter within them, and set out to explore their new home, settling in the most varied of locations and changing to match their chosen sites. Both pass the spark on to new generations, and both change, ever growing more perfect in form. Both, too, choose to die, to feed their brethren and to give back the energies of life to the earth that bore them. The Creator watches as the dance of life grows ever more complex. Life spreads all over the planet, changing, improving, feeding on itself and re-creating itself in the greatest of all equilibriums. The planet becomes a place of pure, vibrant beauty, where every action is part of a cycle, and every cycle is eternal and immutable, growing in complexity without ever becoming endangered. ...read more.

Conclusion

For the first time in eternity, the balance is disrupted. The humans forget who they are, where they came from. Reaching for levels of power that they can no longer safely handle, they forget the concept of balance. They create "science." Instead of the dance of the elements, they see "patterns" and "physical laws." Instead of rejoicing in the Earth that created them and has forever sustained them, and in the essence of life that is the source of all feeling and all joy, they create religion, and dream up deities that are no more than their own shadows. They forget their relationship with the world, and slay other animals, indeed slay all living things for profit. They pillage the Earth and take from it without consideration. For every human who remembers his relationship with the world, there are thousands who turn self-destruction into a way of life, taking no more care of their bodies than of their home. And their "science" reaches ever further, giving humans control over powers they do not understand. Every second brings them closer to the brink of total annihilation. And there is no one to recognise that the dream has turned into a nightmare. ...read more.
