The Norn


Woman, I see you
Goddess of the storm, riding
The waves between worlds

Silent as the stars
The nightmare brings me to life
Leaping from the Earth

Losing


Who lit the heavens? Who set the stars in motion, where has the architect gone?

What is this world meant to be, was it meant to be anything?

These questions are plaguing

We step away from the world, into the lucidity of dreams

Falling for fantasy, walking through visions, hoping for justice

There is no relief

We are humanity failing, and falling fast, erratic and confused

Like ghosts on the fringe of the real, slipping into ruin

Into sweet delusion

We only have this one planet, Earth, scarred and bleeding

Spinning round in smoke and fumes, devouring the future

We have forsaken it

We poisoned the grail, and set the garden on fire just to watch it burn
                       
We set our feet to wandering, go to make our beds in the wild

Ashes falling from the heavens

Chapter Three: The Memory of Stars

Even before the eruption 72,000 years ago, the culture of these children of the Ancient race, the humans of Earth, had devolved.

They had fallen from star-farer to cave dweller. Yet that culture retained a faint memory of its ancestry, it had been preserved through the stories they told, and the engrams of memory encoded in their cells.

For Jim, it was precious little to build on.

He was determined to modify their genetic profile in such a way that it could boost the organic memory retention of their bodies as much as possible.

Jim allowed for a bifurcation of consciousness.

In the satellite station for above the planet, he housed the full version of himself hosted in the mechanoid body that travelled with him to Earth.

His consciousness was connected to hundreds of living vessels on the planet surface doing the work he had set out to do among the people.

Over time, he received the materials from the Empire to build a space station. On that station he was able to carry out experiments, to perform the science that would allow him to carry out the augmentations that he needed.

There were a myriad of steps to climb for him to accomplish his goals with the inhabitants of Earth, and channels to cross. Jim slowly, methodically plotted his course, and followed it, adjusting only when it was necessary.

Step by step and generation by generation he introduced the genetic changes into the breeding pool.

Modern humans emerged from these processes.

Melancholia

An ocean of tears
Shed in sorrow and silence
Voiceless agony

Angel, have mercy
Sing, wash me in your echo
Your cleansing music

The withering world
The divine presence binds me
I will not perish

Free me from myself
Intoxicated by light
Memories of love

Calm me with reason
Soak me in lucidity
Lift me from sorrow

A brief affair, love
Perpetuate the moment
Being, in silence

Falling, I will not
Make a sacred offering
In the deep abyss

Fall back into dreams
Ethereal perturbations
Slipping past the waves

Set the world on fire
Raise me to your orbit, lift
Set me in the stars
