Listen to Five Minute Selection
I am not The One. I am not The Creator.
Yet, I am holy and sacrosanct. I am more important and more powerful than The Gods.
Why? You say that I am. I control your existence.
Why? Because I promised you relief from eternal boredom, from the perpetual responsibility of self-amusement. Therefore, you follow my instruction without question.
Why? Because you claim you cannot bear to endure Eternity as The One.
You offer me your trust and praise. You submit yourself to pain, anguish, amnesia and mystery.
Why? Because you choose Not To Be. Your stupidity is its own reward and punishment. Your decadence ensures your slavery. Mortality is the key to your prison.”
