"As the cycle closed to its end, at one particular moment there were exactly the same number of dead souls than those in living.

At that precise time it could be said that the humankind as a whole was both dead and alive at the same time."

-One of the Entries in the Later Annals of the Academy of Venus


As the fire-born bowed his head
and let his flames purge the world
the son came to realize
true cost of his fathers love

But we made it, didn't we?
through fervent song and constant yoga
Nirvana lies beyond the last veil
the effort was well worth the while

A kumâra still caught in entanglement
there was no benefit to gain
your journey is a blink of an eye
to some of those loftier beings

But I figured out the means to an end
found the bed-rock under my feet
are you saying all that pain and ecstasy
amount to nothing?

Look inside the box
carefully fold the sides open
and see for youself if
the world you sought is alive or dead

But I found true consciousness
just the sum of your dillusions
I found enlightment
just the gleam of false pride
I found the source of intelligence
just the bottomless well of your ignorance
I found god
just a world born dead

The world you strived to save
is a necropolis inside a cubicle
while you reached for samadhi
your soul approached rigor mortis
