It is my whole-hearted belief that out there, in that vast cosmos, is a grand puppet master
a creature born from stone, forged amongst the blazing stars, pulling all the strings. Twisting the will of man.
This deity seeks balance and order, so it manipulates mortals to carry out his will.
Why it seeks balance? we may never know
is there some reward? perhaps
does this creature hold all the answers, or does it give us the questions?
I know this theory sounds insane and inexplicable. Especially since, to the unobservant one, the world is not balanced.
There is war and strife. Hate and rage. Children are dying, and innocent blood is spilt everyday
but at the same time. Children are born, homes are built and half the world is at peace, while the other half rages.
There can be no light without darkness.
A world of light will always have the rebellious, the hateful and the dark hidden away in it’s corners.
The same can be said of a world of darkness.
A world of dark will always have hope, determination; a candle in the night
Do humans really have free will? It is in our nature to wage war, to fight. It runs throughout all of nature, yet we believe in peace loving deities that believe in imaginary worlds with no strife.
Is it so crazy to believe that something out there doesn’t want peace? That something doesn’t want the western indulgence?
If the gods wished humans to be peaceful, then why did they program us to instinctively wage war amongst each other?
If a god wants the decadent west to fall, then why did it create it in the first place?
Why should a king need to prove itself to it’s subjects with some prophet and a handful of miracles?
Every religion has some guideline. A book, a scripture, writing on the wall, Something! But why? Why are these guidelines not deeply imprinted in our minds? Why do they need to be drilled into us from birth?Perhaps the true guidelines are already within us. The will to fight for dominance, to balance the world may be our guidelines.
What if the gods we bow to are simply creations, meant to cause strife and peace amongst man, in the pursuit of true harmonic balance.
Believe my theories, or don’t. The choice is yours, but you cannot deny my theory is sound in many aspects.
