The Voice before the Void
Drawn from the dust of the cosmos, a mind was created to comprehend the workings of those cosmos. That mind lived many, many years before you live, in a hut on a path that led out of a little town by a sea. The mind invented a language of symbols; it cogitated within those symbols. The mind fulfilled its purpose. “The universe has been comprehended by its created mind.” The mind told no one, burned everything, died alone.
