Chapter Seven: Fire
Fire is the universal symbol of purification.
As we pass through fire we are refined; our impurities released and our essence distilled into its purest form.
When the fruit of the field is ripe, the people bring it in, they commence with the harvest it and light the fields on fire. They dance in the glow of the burning fields, in the disintegration of the chaff and the stalks. They dance in triumph and thanksgiving.
This is the natural end of the rebellion; the revolution ensues and the hands of justice turn the soil over. We bury the old ways of corruption deep in the earth, sending it down with all of the dead.
Through this ritual we are cleansed.
This is the natural end of rebellion; the revolution is hallowed in the celebration of change, of its constancy, of return and renewal.
The glorious end of the revolution is to start fresh at the beginning.
We generate fresh narratives to gloss over all our crimes and absolve ourselves in the great conflagration.
Fire is the symbol of the beginning and the end.
We are born in the heat of our mother star. In time we will return to her she will reach out and embrace us in the super-nova, the great bath of fire.
