In Life we are Lead, but what are we in Death?
The Mystery that is beyond the veil of Mystery.
The Mystery beyond the Veil of Mystery, that inconceivable thing beyond comprehension and description from which All came and All will return to.
From this inconceivable Mystery emanated an "Attribute-less Absolute", a state of "Non-Essence", wholly without qualities and description without Sound nor Silence. A truly "Limitless" thing for it was impersonal and unconscious, not acknowledging that was "Limitless" in Non-Distinction. Then sprouted the Infinite Point of the Infinite Circle, the Quintessence of "I AM", as the "Pure Air" of the Spirit and Conscious emerging from nothing, creating the first dyad. A state of "Supreme Noumena" where it hold every and all attributes within itself in a state of Unity and Non-Duality. In the first stages of the Universe's creation, there was SILENCE, for "I AM" means also "I AM NOT", and so from the Androgynous force came The Phallic and The Womb. The Phallic spoke the word which was SILENCE, creating the Logos of "Will", The Womb received the word and gave it meaning through "Love". Through the union of Will and Love, they birthed the Dream of The Illusory Universe holding Distinction and Duality. The first stage of the Universe was "Truth" itself, formless and shapeless in creation. Then in "Formative" realm, was a world of "Limitless Truth" in which it was given infinite expressions and ideals. At the bottom was the Physical World of "Limited Truths", the world of matter in which the forms have now crystalized into a set shape.
The Limited World of The Physical, was very distant from the forces that dreamed and emanated it, yet still the divinity from far beyond was reflected in it, for a piece of The Mystery resided within the unknowable reaches at the heart of every being. Through this reflection, the first mortals discovered that one could traverse through this reflection and return from whence they came, giving way to the discovery of "Magick", however the consequence of discovering this divine path was that this was path was a Non-Physical object reflecting through The Physical. Through it's usage, the limits of the Physical would disrupt and disperse until the barrier was shattered. The History of The First Mortals are unknown, but their usage of the Mystic Forces opened a floodgate from the Spiritual into The Physical, rendering the Physical World into a Starless wasteland of eternal night. The Suns no longer shining forth the warmth that preserved, life began to cease.
In the reaches of this Sunless World, a strange Monolith like structure began to appear inexplicably in different places. Some saw it in dreams, some saw it in visions, and some came across it in the physical world, though to most it was completely imperceptible and unrecognizable. The Purpose and meaning behind it's appearance remained a Mystery. Those touched it disappeared with a sudden burst of Golden Light. Those that came back claimed to see things beyond words and comprehension, and seemed to have lost their sanity, while other's that never came back were simply forgotten about, lost without a trace of their existence.
But the secret of the Forge was known to the few who went in and never came back out. It was a tool for transcendence to be used by the Magician when prepared, a monolith containing a formula which was a gateway into realms beyond. There, The Ego would be slain and their blood would be poured back to the waters of the Womb from once they came, being born again.
