Cypher ~ The Unbound
Life is a strange paradox. We strive to live which in its nature rejects a strict governing order in favour of freedom. Yet to allow us our desired freedom so we may flourish we build structures and systems that over generations leech away our creative animating spark. Eventually, our systems and ways ossify, reflecting our own lives that eventually end in death. All life strives like this and all life is eventually doomed. Only the time taken to that doom can be changed.
When I began meditation upon Pilah I sought a way to escape my own immortality. Many call me an immortal God. I am not, I realised that the end I would eventually face was not important because it could not be changed. I was able to completely surrender my desire to live without turning to the embrace of death. The journey became my only concern, the infinite permutations of existence until all becomes uniform and rests. I meditate upon my own experience and death has yet to claim me in hundreds of years.
In the beginning, I intuit that it was a wonderful world of chaos and freedom, rapidly moving through endless permutations. But extremes breed their antithesis and disorder brought fourth order to eventually bring the universe to a final state. When I sense that the balance of the universe moves faster towards order I try to help my followers understand what can be done to restore the balance without resisting the natural flow of things. Now is the greatest acceleration of order I have ever seen. Only time will tell if life can assert itself in the face of the end.
