The destructive illusion of "better and worse."
Mankind has a distinct pattern of development and destruction that has been repeated several times over millions of years.
Within one of such cycles existed a prince of great power blessed with access to the triumphant feats of engineering and spirituality. Machines assembled with silver and gold and mixtures of Quicksilver and Rasa (living elements of the earth).
With these great creations he and his peers from all corners of the earth, ruled the skies in majestic splendor. As years of co-operation passed a basic misunderstanding of comparisons developed and what was once a glorious display of mutual adoration descended into a competition of superiority over one another.
And with this competition was born a contest of destruction. Weapons of unspeakable horror were developed and first demonstrated as a deterrence but eventually used upon each other.
The carnage spread from aerial protagonists to the innocent on the surface and with the passage of the years this puerile competition for superiority left in its wake total destruction.
Lost were paradises rich in history and accomplishment, civilizations, grand cities (both aerial and under the seas) and entire races of the innocent. Generations destroyed in single days.
Ultimately this led to the decimation of these great Machines of the sky. One by one they were destroyed or grounded until there existed all but one.
As the prince landed his Majestic machine of empty glory he looked upon the carnage and rubble that remained and in this moment of silence understood the futility of such conflict and comparison.
To atone for his participation in this disgraceful destruction he sought to uplift the downtrodden of the earth flying from the desert north of Africa to the new expanses of the western and southern continents spreading word of the beauty of co-existence, productive use of technology and personal understanding.
As time lapsed upon him he understood his mission had drawn to a close. He drew the attention of all the people from the corners of the earth to impart his final message. which is RELEVANT TODAY:
“Competition amongst yourselves offers no clue to the true nature of humanity for within each individual lies a gem of unfathomable beauty, singular in its nature divine in its essence. Adore one another and set no standard for such foolishness shall ensure your destruction.”
With these final words he departed with the last of the flying fortresses hurling himself and the wisdom of destruction into the far reaches of space and time. Where they may never be misused again.
