Brigadiers at the Wall: Prologue (Genesis)

A walk past the vineyard was all I needed to confirm the revelation that would come in present hours. The prophecy that had been foretold earlier that day gave dread to the Temple sages. Now, on the smallest of the Northwestern isles, it is heavily leaden with fog. The twilight air is abnormally obstreperous. Crickets on top of the archway rhapsodize in the night, and a bird of prey swoops through the sky in great arcs. Great clouds plow through the sky, thunder rolling from their depths, and at the very top of the island’s summit is the crystal ball. It sits on a plinth made of granite, a marvelous gift from the creator, who so willingly gave the world life. Yet, this treasured relic’s light seems to be on the wane…

The world was dawned by the almighty deity, who did create all things out of pure righteousness. From the Realms God did descend, and swept over the bare land. Knowledge and energy did come out of the land that lay flat and bare, and flowed over the dryness that parched the land. Then, the sonorous voice did say, “I, who loves you so, give hope.” He touched the land, and hope did blossom from where he touched it, and it became the dreamscape. The dreamscape became many things, for God gave much knowledge and love.
At first, the dreamscape hung amorphously where the void had once been. Then it condensed, contorted, and created the first form, a triangle. God was pleased with it, and it replicated itself. The replication turned into a square, and God was just as pleased. Again, and again, and again, the duplications continued, until much later there were many numbers of many countenances, and God was pleased with them. He summoned the original shape to him. The shape replicated itself once more, and there were two triangles. God gave the original triangle another dimension. The triangle became a two dimensional pyramid, and every shape replicated itself again, and God gave every original shape one more dimension. God made a third dimension as well, and soon the dreamscape had been split into many shapes and dimensions. Then God blessed them again with his love and knowledge, and they returned the favor by creating the first life form, the cell. God was pleased even more, and he loved them, and they too loved him.
The shapes continued to multiply and develop their features, until there was such a variety of life forms, that God pronounced them to be genuine. He then blessed them with his love and knowledge again, and they were given additional traits.
Soon the many forms had developed creatures of all sorts. God’s love and knowledge became so great that he granted them a conscious of their own. From this new trait, they journeyed to what had been the dreamscape, and made the firmament to the world beyond God. He was pleased with it, and he granted life to the world outside of his Realm, though not before he told them that life was created by him, for them, and for all to come.
Life then journeyed away from God’s Realm and into the blank voids. From them life also began to take form. The creatures did glide through this empty abyss, until they could see nothing but themselves standing out against the deserted void, but endowed with God’s knowledge and powers, they summoned light to their side. The expansive nothingness became understandable features, yet it was Life that blessed them and made them the first world to live upon. God did appear before them then, and conjured an orb filled with light. He gave it to them, and said, “This is my gift unto you. Take it and place it on the world. I will always be with you.” Then, he swept over them one last time, as he had done to the land once before, and blessed them all with his knowledge and love. God vanished. They would never see him again. God would not return to the world, for his part in the creation was over.
