a story in two parts
This is not something that happened before. This is not a legend that we are showing you to help you understand the world. This is not the cloud of understanding.
This is happening.
It is happening now.
Maybe when you encounter this story it will already be the past again. There is nothing immortal about this moment.
But because it is happening now it is something that we cannot change.
The past is easy to change and the future is like pushing rocks but the present we can only watch. That is what it means to be a mortal creature, bound by time.
