From the darkness of the endless
abyss, by some quirk of eternity beyond our reasoning, our universe was born into existence in a conflagration that defies the laws of physics as we know it.
Greek bards of old had their version of events, one that claimed that from the ashes of this enigma was born beings of power, representative of our emotions like love, peace and violence. Among them was Hephaestus, the god of fire. He was destructive but cleansed the world by his power of purification and became the symbol of purity. Then there was Zeus, the lord of the skies and the air, who through lightning and thunder, soft mists and rain, made the world heaven and the reason for birth and entity. He was the lover, the one who brought glory to the world. Gaea, the Earth, the manifestation of maternal love, the flawless example of reciprocation, the mentor of life and punishment. She cherishes every bit of sand on her, primitive and ancient. And then was Poseidon, the god of the sea and the waters, curer of thirst and the source of existence. He could be calm when restrained, yet unforgiving when enraged. And finally, Khaos, space, the abyss, the beginning and the end. He who is truly inevitable, the origin and the entity of change.
A combination of the might of these beings, and the emotions they represent form the Panchabootha. It's now ours to create, our turn to break from social stereotypes, it's our time on the line. Not meant to be spent on fleeting pleasures, but to lay the groundwork for the chrysalides that will transform us into the Gods and Goddesses of creativity and science, who will usher in a better tomorrow.
