Memories become legend
Legend fades into myth
Myth is long forgotten
Until it all comes again
Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time


Perched above the jungle canopy
Carved from the rock of a mountainside
Nestled in the desert sands
Relaxing on the shores of a gentle tide
in a tropical paradise
in the lap of luxury

in our hands…
The things that we fear and the things that we can't understand

The evolution of life
The story of man
Where did we start from?
When will it end?

Consumed by the flames of a raging fire
Crushed by the rock of a mountainside
Buried by the desert sands
Washed away by the rising tide
Frozen in an arctic waste
Surrounded by concrete and steel

in our hands…
The things that we fear and the things that we can't understand
The things that we can't comprehend…

Concepts so far outside of our consciousness
The events that we all witnessed that can't be dismissed
Because we can not see it means it doesn't exist?
Open your eyes and your mind…
