»I had a dream, which was not all a dream. The bright sun was extinguish’d, And the stars did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth swung Blind and blackening in the moonless air; And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this their desolation; and all hearts Were chill’d into a selfish prayer for light.« - Ld. Byron Before the birth of time as the mealstrom reigned A second counted years and aeons passed in a trice Chaos embraced the darkness, it filled eternal space No voice, no sound, no life - just endless night Whose hands did wield the power to let the stars align To let the furthest suns bear light and galaxies conflate Or was it just an accident, an occurrence without reason The arbitrariness of nature - forecast of the apocalypse The Godless Divinity Inconceivable Intangible Inscrutable Unimaginable Creatio ex nihilo, the origin of it all Mankind is nothing but a moment within a higher plan Creation out of nothingness, it will go down in nothingness All will drown into a vortex of oblivion and dust A sceptre brought by muses to the one who sang the truth Six ancestral forces arose out of chaos’ soul Uranos built the sky, Ourea forged the mountains Pontos gave birth to oceans, Hemera brought the day Myths and legends tried to find the answer To what is right and what does hide behind the shadows There must be something way beyond our notion Who can tell and unveil the secret of life Whose hands did wield the power to let the stars align? The arbitrariness of nature, godless divinity lies within No voice, no sound, no life Let there be light - the sun - mother of existence Let there be life - mankind - destruction and demise Let there be oceans - to drown - and purify our souls Let there be land - a place - to bury our sins And the Lord said: »I will multiply thy sorrows and conceptions. Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread. For dust thou art and into dust thou shalt return.« - Genesis 3, 16-19 Galaxies, formed in aeons bear foundations to form new life Two planetary bodies collide and a long arm of material thrived Sheared off - the burning moon - kaleidoscopic, the dance of the flames Glooming in ten thousand degrees A seething, blazing mass Gave birth to all life as we know it Gave ballance to the earth A fixed orbit around the sun An elliptic universal berth Oceans grew and mountains arose Live evolved over millions and millions of years »The world was void, The populous and the powerful was a lump, seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless A lump of death - a chaos of hard clay.« - Ld. Byron Nebular hypothesis - Book of Genesis Theory of evolution - Faith of creationism Physical fortuity - Divine tragedy Molecular accumulation - Scripted destination Bolometric luminosity - Present numinosity Electromagnetic radiation - Religious agitation Kinetic energy - Higher entity Law of gravitation - Heavenly incarnation Creatio ex nihilo, the origin of it all Mankind is nothing but a moment within a higher plan Creation out of nothingness, it will go down in nothingness All will drown into a vortex of oblivion and dust Creatio ex nihilo, the origin of it all Mankind is nothing but a moment within a higher plan Creation out of nothingness, it will go down in nothingness All will drown into a vortex of oblivion and dust

»They die - the dead return not Misery sits near an open grave and calls them over A youth with hoary hair and haggard eye They are the names of kindred, friends and lover Which he so feebly calls - they all are gone Fond wretch, all dead! those vacant names alone This most familiar scene, my pain These tombs alone remain Misery, my sweetest friend - oh, weep no more! Thou wilt not be consoled - I wonder not! For I have seen thee from thy dwelling’s door Watch the calm sunset with them, and this spot Was even as bright and calm, but transitory, And now thy hopes are gone, thy hair is hoary; This most familiar scene, my pain These tombs alone remain First our pleasures die - and then Our hopes, and then our fears - and when These are dead, the debt is due Dust claims dust and we die, too.« - P. B. Shelley »Be silent in that solitude, which is not loneliness For then the spirits of the dead who stood in life before thee Are again in death around thee And their will shall then overshadow thee: Be still! All things that we love and cherish Like ourselves must fade and perish Such is our rude mortal lot Love itself would, did they not?« - E. A. Poe »Can I see another’s woe, and not be in sorrow, too? Can I see another’s grief, and not seek for kind relief? Can I see a falling tear, and not feel my sorrow’s share? Can a father see his child weep, nor be with sorrow filled? Can a mother sit and hear an infant groan, an infant fear? No, no! Never can it be! Never, never can it be! And can He who smiles on all hear the wren with sorrow’s small Hear the small bird’s grief and care, hear the woes that infants bear?« - W. Blake »I am the key that parts the gates of fame I am the cloak that covers cowering shame I am the final goal of every race I am the storm-tossed spirit’s resting place The messenger of sure and swift relieve Welcomed with wailings and repraochful grief The friend of those that have no friend but me I break all chains and set all captives free I am the cloud that, when Earth’s day is done An instant veils an unextinguished sun I am the brooding hush that follows strife The waking from a dream that man calls life.« - F. E. Coates »It is death who comforts and revives In whom we see the only goal and hope He gives the potion that lifts us inebriate And courage to walk until dusk falls He is beneath the snow, the storm, the falling rain At the gloomy edge of sky, a dawning day He is the famous hall of guests Where everyone can sit and rest.« - St. George He gave birth to time as his maelstrom reigned His second counts eternal, his aeons passes in a trice His chaos embraces darkness, he fills eternal space His voice, his sound, his life - he is the endless night His hands, they wield the power, they let the stars align They let the furthest suns bear light and galaxies conflate He is the accident, the occurrence without reason The arbitrariness of nature The Godless Divinity
