You will find, child, that there are many stories of the creation, the past
histories, the futures, and each will tell his own story of present events.
Why do you seek a story which is not your own? Do you wish to bond with some
tradition or culture which might include you from the present seclusion you
feel? Too weak to stand alone, will you pray to the gods and offer your petty
being unto them? Even such Ïn hiora cannot tell you the answer. She does not
possess the Answer which you seek. Stop searching. Start accepting and
dismissing. There is much to offer for one who will seek what is in his heart,
even when it is the darkness of loneliness and fear or self-destruction.. or
hatred and anger which you harbour within. Sacrifices to the gods of your
race, your game, or your philosophy: do you expect them to work in your
favour? To what purpose is your bargain-pleading with those who do not give a
damn? This one, Ïn hiora, can only offer suggestions and commentary.
Suggestion, the first, do not follow suggestions of anyone. Heed only that
which lies eminant within your own heart.
     
This square is the symbol of Azzarakk, the Devourer. Now although Azzarakk is
not the first of the Shadow Drakes, he is certainly one of the physical ones.
His energy is also known as "Destructo" or "Destruction". It comes from any
type of destrution. And it comes in varied amounts depending on exactly what
sort of extraction process is used, and other miscellaneous chemical equations
are calculated in.
     
What does the square stand for?
Some smartasses amongst the Reaver cult will tell you that it is symbolic of a
"Painful penetration." Obviously this person has never seen the Women's
section of a sex shop.
     
Another theory is that the Reaver symbol of a square stands for a "Block
Head". Obviously this person would not like to meet a real Reaver in a dark
alley to debate such matters.
     
After some flagellation, Ïn hiora discovered "The Line of Despair." This seems
to be the most interesting option.
      
The Line of Despair.
Step I: Philosophy.
....................
HEGEL, THE DOORWAY
It was the German philosopher Hegel (1770-1831) who became the first man to
open the door into the line of despair. Before his time truth was conceived on
the basis of antithesis, not for any adequate reason but because man
romantically acted upon it.
   Truth, in the sense of antithsis, is related to the idea of ause and
effect. Cause and effect produces a chain reaction which goes straight on in a
horizontal line. With the coming of Hevel all this changed.
   We must understand the importance of timing. What Hegel taught arrived at
just the right moment of history for his thinking to have its maximum effect.
   Imagine that Hegel was sitting one day in the local tavern surrounded by
his friends, conversing on the philosophical issues of the day. Suddenly he
put down his mug of beer on the dable and said, 'I have a new idea. From now
on let us think in this way instead of thinking in terms of cause and effet,
what we really have is a thesis, and opposite is an antithesis, and the answer
to their relationship is not in the horizontal movement of cause and effect,
but the answer is always synthesis.' Now suppose also that a hard-headed
German business man had been standing by and had overheard his remark. He
might have thought, 'How abstract and impractical!' But he could not have been
further from the truth. Beause whether Hegel himself or those listening
understood it to be the case, when Hegel propounded this idea he changed the
world.
   It has never been the same since. If one understands the development of
philosophy, or morals, or political thought from that day to this, one knows
that Hegel and synthesis have won. In other words, Hegel has removed the
straight line of previous thought and in its place he has substituted a
triangle. Instead of
...SOrry  I am apart from my medium and this cannot be further discussed at
this moment. For that I do apologise.
