We hail and worship death and we strive to restore the balance. To us, only death is real. In fact, we perceive death as an essence of eternal change; which is the only certain phenomenon in the ever expanding cosmos. This notion merely cannot dispel us from speaking our mind nor restrain us from breaking old barriers. Rather we acknowledge and appreciate it more from our core to comprehend and adopt so that we can evolve throughout the ages in perfect balance and harmony. However on another note, we also love to write stories and post-dict about our glorious days of antiquity. History is an absolutely opulent treasure to us- A keepsake that shall live within forever and go around without furthermore.
