PIEROGI 15 DAWID ANDRZEJEWSKI - POLAND

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS NOTHING BUT ONLY THE CREATURE THAT WAS TRAVELING THROUGH SPACE. THERE WERE NO SUCH THINGS AS PLANETS AND STARS. THE NAME OF THE CREATURE WAS PIEROGI 15. PIEROGI 15 WANTED TO DO SOMETHING THAT HE WOULD BE PROUD OF. SO HE DECIDED TO CREATE SOME THINGS THAT WAS IN HIS MIND. AND IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE GALACTIX, PLANETS, AND THE STARS. PIEROGI 15 STATED THAT WHAT HE CREATED WAS BEAUTIFUL. HE ALSO MADE THE EARTH FROM HIS THOUGHTS WHICH HE WAS ESPECIALLY PLEASED WITH. BUT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH FOR HIM. PIEROGI 15 WANTED LIFE TO ARISE IN THE UNIVERSE AND THE WORD BECAME THE FLESH. HE BEGAN TO CREATE PLANTS, ANIMALS, SEAS AND MOUNTAINS. HE ALSO CREATED HUMANS AS AN INTELLIGENT RACE. UNFORTUNATELY, DISPUTES BEGAN TO TAKE PLACE BETWEEN PEOPLE. MANY OF THE TRIBES THAT SAW THE GOD BEFORE HE LEFT THE EARTH HAD DIFFERENT OPINIONS ABOUT HIM. THEY ALL WORSHIPED HIM, BUT THEY THOUGHT ONLY ONE WAY WAS RIGHT. THE TRIBES DIVIDED BETWEEN THOSE WHO THOUGHT THE GOD APPEARED IN THE FORM OF RUSSIAN DUMPLINGS AND THOSE WHO CONSIDERED SPINACH DUMPLINGS TO BE THE CORRECT ONE. THERE WERE MANY TRIBES BESIDES THEM, SOME OF THE MORE POWERFUL WERE THE TRIBES OF DUMPLINGS WITH CABBAGE AND MUSHROOMS, WITH CHEESE, WITH JAM, WITH MEAT, AND BESIDES THEM THERE WERE MANY MORE OF SMALLER ONES. THE FIGHTING BETWEEN THE TRIBES BEGAN TO INTENSIFY AND THE BLOODSHED INCREASED. WARS CONTINUED FOR MANY CENTURIES. FINALLY WHEN PIEROGI 15 RETURNED TO THE EARTH, AFTER CREATING ONE PART OF THE UNIVERSE, HE SAW WHAT WAS HAPPENING. PIEROGI 15 DIDN'T LIKE THE STATE OF AFFAIRS. OUR TRUE GOD HAS COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN TO THE BATTLEFIELD. EVERYONE FROZE AND HE SPOKE AND ORDERED THE PEOPLE TO STOP FIGHTING. HE SAID THAT HE WAS THE ONE WHO CREATED THEM. LOOKING AT THEIR GOD, THEY ALL REALIZED THAT EVERY TASTE OF THE DUMPLINGS WAS PART OF HIS DIVINE MAJESTY. THEY ALSO PERCEIVED THAT HE IS NOT LIMITED TO JUST ONE TYPE OF DUMPLING. NOW THEY ALL REALIZED THAT BY FIGHTING THEY HAD WASTED THEIR TIME AND OFFENDED PIEROGI 15. PEOPLE BEGAN TO WORSHIP HIM AGAIN, BUT NOW IN A DIFFERENT WAY. THEY BEGAN TO CREATE DUMPLINGS IN HIS LIKENESS. THEY WERE NO LONGER LIMITED TO JUST ONE FLAVOR AND TYPE. THEY BEGAN TO CREATE NEW FLAVORS AND TYPES OF DUMPLINGS. THEN THEY ATE THEM TO GET CLOSER TO THEIR GOD. ALL KINDS AND FLAVORS OF DUMPLINGS THAT PEOPLE CREATED ENHANCED AND PLEASED OUR GOD. HE UNDERSTOOD THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE FINE NOW. HE HAS LEFT THE EARTH, BUT STILL WATCHES IT FROM AFAR.

IN MEMORY OF THIS EVENT, IN SHOPS WE CAN FIND DUMPLINGS PACKED IN 15 PIECES. END


LET’S DO SOMETHING FUN NISANUR KOC, METE EZIRCANLI, AYLIN AKIN, ALPER YILDIRIM, RÜMEYSA ASLAN, URAS İPLIKÇI -TURKEY

SCENE 1

STORYTELLER - ONCE UPON A TIME, BILLIONS OF BILLIONS OF YEARS AGO WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING BEFORE THE BIG “APPLE” THEORY, GOD WAS BORED.

GOD - I AM SO BORED, OH MY GOD, FUCK I AM THE GOD, SORRY. LET’S DO SOMETHING REALLY FUN. WHERE IS MY FAVORITE SON? STORYTELLER - THEN, THE DEVIL APPEARED. DEVIL - I AM HERE, DADDY. LET’S PLAY SOME CARD GAMES. STORYTELLER - THEY STARTED TO PLAY CARD GAMES. DEVIL THOUGHT THAT THE GAME IS BORING. DEVIL - DADDY, IT IS BORING, LET’S DO SOMETHING FUN. STORYTELLER - LIKE APO. GOD - WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND? DEVIL - YOU CAN CREATE SOME CREATURES, PAPA. GOD - WHAT IS THE FUNNY PART OF YOUR IDEA? DEVIL - WE CAN BET ON THESE CREATURES. GOD - WHAT KIND OF BET ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? STORYTELLER - THE DEVIL SAW THE BEAUTIFUL APPLE TREE. (THE TREE STARTS DANCING) DEVIL - WE CAN USE THAT TREE IF THE CREATURES EAT THE APPLE, I WILL WIN. IF NOT, YOU WILL WIN. STORYTELLER - THE REWARD FOR THE BET WAS MASHA’S MIGHTY BELL. GOD STARTED TO LOOK AROUND FOR THE MATERIAL OF THE CREATURES. GOD LOOKED AT THE CARDS BUT HE DIDN’T LIKE THEM. GOD LOOKED AT THE WATER BUT HE DIDN’T LIKE IT. GOD LOOKED AT THE CIGARETTES, HE DECIDED THAT THE BEST OPTION IS TO CREATE THE HUMAN BEINGS FROM THE ASHES OF THE CIGARETTES. (GOD CREATES ADAM AND EVE) STORYTELLER - ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED IN THIS WAY. THAT’S WHY LOVE, HUMANITY, AND CAPITALISM WERE BORN. (ADAM AND EVE STOOD UP.)


SCENE 2 (ADAM SITTING AND PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES.) ANGEL - YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU SHOULDN’T EAT THE APPLE BECAUSE GOD SAID IF YOU EAT IT, YOU WILL BE PUNISHED BY HIM. STORYTELLER - DEVIL WENT TO EVE AND HE SPOKE. DEVIL - YOU SHOULD EAT THE APPLE, IT IS DELICIOUS, SHINY, BEAUTIFUL, AND TASTY LIKE MY ASS. EVE - YOU ARE SO CUTE. ALREADY, I WOULD LIKE TO EAT IT. STORYTELLER - EVE WENT TO ADAM. ASKED ADAM HOW TO PICK THE APPLE. EVE - I WANT AN APPLE. (ADAM STILL PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES.) EVE - I WANT TO EAT AN APPLE. ADAM - CAN’T YOU SEE I AM PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES? STORYTELLER - EVE WALKED AROUND AND CAME BACK TO ADAM. EVE - I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO EAT THE APPLE. COME ON ADAM! ADAM - GOD SAID THAT WE CANNOT EAT THE APPLE. EVE - BUT WHY? I WANT TO EAT IT. ADAM - DON’T PISS ME OFF. I WOULDN’T BE INTERESTED IN YOU IF YOU WERE NOT THE ONLY WOMAN IN HEAVEN. EVE - YOU ARE NOT MY TYPE, BUT THERE IS NO OPTION IN THIS AREA. STORYTELLER - WHILE ADAM AND EVE DISCUSSING, THE DEVIL AND ANGEL COME CLOSER TO ADAM AND EVE. THEY TRIED TO CONVINCE ADAM AND EVE ACCORDING TO THEIR DESIRES. (ANGEL AND DEVIL WHISPERING TO ADAM AND EVE.) DEVIL - LET’S GO AND EAT IT. WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR? EVE - OKAY. I AM GOING TO EAT. (ANGEL WHISPERS TO ADAM.) ANGEL – PLEASE DON’T EAT THE APPLE, GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO EAT THIS APPLE. (EVE GOES TO ADAM) EVE – IF YOU DON’T BRING ME THAT APPLE, NO MORE SEX. ADAM – WHAT! NO WAY! LET’S EAT THE FUCKING APPLE. STORYTELLER - ADAM CLIMBED THE TREE AND BROUGHT THE APPLE. EVE ATE THE APPLE. EVE - IT’S TOO TASTY, ADAM. WHY DIDN’T WE TRY THIS BEFORE? ADAM - BECAUSE PLAYING THE GAME IS MORE ENTERTAINING. BUT SEX IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN HEAVEN.


SCENE 3

STORYTELLER - THE DEVIL WON THE BET AND CELEBRATED HIS VICTORY. AT THE SAME TIME, GOD WAS TOO SURPRISED AND THOUGHT ABOUT DEEP PUNISHMENT FOR ADAM AND EVE. SO, HE DECIDED TO ASK HIS SON, THE DEVIL. DEVIL – THESE ARE HUMANS MY DEAR FATHER. THEY DO NOT DESERVE GOOD FAITH. MAYBE YOU CAN CREATE A SHITTY PLACE NAMED EARTH. THEN YOU WILL PUT THEM IN THIS PLACE. ANGEL - OK. I HAVE A GOOD IDEA TOO. BECAUSE OF DETERMINING THE WORTHY ONES AND NOT WORTHY ONES, WE CAN MAKE A COMPETITION BETWEEN ME AND DEVIL. IF I WIN, I WILL BRING THEM TO HEAVEN, IF THE DEVIL WINS, WE CAN SEND THEM TO HELL. GOD - I CAN MAKE SOME STUPID RULES. ANGEL- LIKE WHAT? GOD - LIKE DO NOT EAT PORK, GO A PLACE AND PRAY ME EVERY SUNDAY OR YOU CAN’T SHAVE YOUR BRAVE. ANGEL - OK FATHER. MAYBE WE CAN DECIDE LATER. GOD - WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH FUN. STORYTELLER - THEN, GOD CREATED THE WORLD. FOR THE SEA, HE USED THE BEER, FOR THE

MOUNTAINS HE USED SOME OF THE MUSCLES, FOR THE ATMOSPHERE HE USED THE BREATH OF ANGELS. AND THUS, HUMANITY AND THE WORLD WERE CREATED.

STORY RAJESH KUMAR, SYED IBRAR HUSSAIN - ITALY

UNIVERSE BEGAN ABOUT 14 BILLION YEARS AGO. AT THAT TIME, THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WAS INSIDE A BUBBLE THAT WAS THOUSANDS OF TIMES SMALLER THAN A PINHEAD. IT WAS HOTTER AND DENSER THAN ANYTHING WE CAN IMAGINE. THEN IT SUDDENLY EXPLODED. THE UNIVERSE THAT WE KNOW WAS BORN. TIME, SPACE AND MATTER ALL BEGAN WITH THE BIG BANG. IN A FRACTION OF A SECOND, THE UNIVERSE GREW FROM SMALLER THAN A SINGLE ATOM TO BIGGER THAN A GALAXY. AND IT KEPT ON GROWING AT A FANTASTIC RATE. IT IS STILL EXPANDING TODAY. GOD TOOK SOME CLAY FROM THE GROUND AND MADE THE SHAPE OF A MAN. THEN HE BREATHED GENTLY INTO THE SHAPE. THE MAN'S EYES OPENED AND HE BEGAN TO LIVE. GOD CALLED HIM ADAM. THE LORD MADE A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN FOR HIM TO LIVE IN. THE GARDEN, CALLED EDEN, WAS FULL OF MANY WONDERFUL THINGS. BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS GREW EVERYWHERE. BIRDS SANG IN THE TREES, STREAMS FLOWED THROUGH THE VALLEY AND ANIMALS ROAMED ACROSS THE FIELDS. GOD HAD MADE THE MAN IN HIS IMAGE TO KEEP HIM COMPANY AND LOOK AFTER THE WORLD. GOD BROUGHT ALL THE ANIMALS TO ADAM ONE AT A TIME TO BE GIVEN THEIR NAMES. "ELEPHANT", HE WOULD SAY, OR "TIGER '', OR "PORCUPINE". BUT GOD FELT SORRY FOR ADAM. "NONE OF THESE ANIMALS IS REALLY LIKE HIM," THOUGHT GOD, "HE NEEDS SOMEONE TO SHARE HIS LIFE. SOMEONE WHO CARES FOR HIM AND WHO HE CAN CARE FOR." THAT NIGHT, GOD TOOK A RIB FROM ADAM'S SIDE AND MADE A WOMAN. WHEN ADAM AWOKE THE FOLLOWING MORNING, HE FOUND A WIFE, EVE, LYING ASLEEP BESIDE HIM. ADAM WAS SO HAPPY. HE TOOK HER HAND AND SHE WOKE UP. SHE LOOKED UP AT HIM AND SMILED. GOD TOLD THE MAN AND WOMAN THAT IT WAS THEIR JOB TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR NEW HOME. GOD BLESSED THEM, SAYING, "ALL THIS IS FOR YOU. HELP YOURSELF TO ANYTHING YOU LIKE. BUT NEVER TOUCH THE TREE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GARDEN. THAT TREE GIVES KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. THE DAY YOU EAT ITS FRUIT, YOU WILL DIE." GOD DID NOT MEAN THAT ADAM AND EVE WOULD DROP DOWN DEAD THE MOMENT THEY ATE THE FRUIT FROM THE TREE. HE MEANT THAT IN TIME THEY WOULD DIE WITHOUT HIS SPIRIT DWELLING IN THEM. ONE DAY, ADAM AND EVE WERE GATHERING BERRIES FOR DINNER WHEN SHE HEARD A SILKY VOICE BEHIND HER. "HAS GOD TOLD YOU THAT YOU CAN EAT THE FRUIT FROM ALL THE TREES?" THE VOICE ASKED SOFTLY. EVE TURNED AROUND TO SEE A SNAKE TALKING TO HER. "GOD HAS TOLD US WE CAN EAT ALL THE FRUIT EXCEPT FOR WHAT GROWS ON THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL," EVE TOLD THE SERPENT. "OH COME NOW, THAT'S SILLY! I HARDLY THINK SUCH A LOVELY FRUIT WOULD DO YOU ANY HARM," THE SERPENT LIED. "GOD KNOWS THAT IF YOU EAT FROM THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL YOU'LL BECOME JUST LIKE GOD, AND WILL BE ABLE TO DECIDE FOR YOURSELF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG." THE WOMAN LOOKED AT THE FRUIT AND THOUGHT HOW TASTY IT LOOKED. SHE THOUGHT HOW WONDERFUL IT WOULD BE TO BE AS WISE AND POWERFUL AS GOD. SHE BELIEVED THE SERPENT'S LIE AND ATE THE FRUIT AND ALSO GAVE SOME TO ADAM, WHO WAS WITH HER, AND HE TOOK A BITE AS WELL. SHE FELT A STRANGE FEELING IN THE PIT OF HER STOMACH. SHE FIDGETED AND WONDERED WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER. SUDDENLY SHE REALIZED THAT SHE WAS FEELING GUILTY -- SHE HAD DISOBEYED GOD AND KNEW SHE'D DONE SOMETHING WRONG. AS SOON AS THEY ATE THE FRUIT A CHANGE CAME OVER ADAM AND EVE. THEY BECAME UNHAPPY AND FEARFUL OF GOD. ADAM AND EVE HEARD GOD CALLING THEM. WITHOUT THINKING, THEY DIVED INTO THE BUSHES, BUT GOD KNEW WHERE THEY WERE. WHEN GOD ASKED THEM IF THEY HAD EATEN FROM THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL THAT HE HAD TOLD THEM NOT TO TOUCH, THEY BLAMED EACH OTHER FOR THEIR SINS. GOD WAS SAD THAT ADAM AND EVE HAD DISOBEYED THEM. HE TOLD THEM THAT THEY HAD TO LEAVE THE GARDEN OF EDEN, "FROM NOW ON YOU'LL HAVE TO SCRATCH A LIVING FROM THE SOIL. YOU'LL NEED TO MAKE CLOTHES AND GROW FOOD. NOTHING WILL COME EASILY -- NOT EVEN CHILDBIRTH. AND ONE DAY, YOU WILL DIE."


STORY OF GOD MARRA PASQUALE SICOLO - ITALY

A LOT OF YEARS AGO THERE WAS A WORLD WITHOUT MEN, A WONDERFUL WORLD, RICH IN FLORA AND FAUNA, AND TO PROTECT THIS WORLD THERE WAS THE GOD MARRA, THERE WAS PEACE AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE BUT ONE DAY ONE OF THE SON OF GOD REBELLED TO PEACE AND DECIDED TO ATTACK THE EARTH, DESTROYED EVERYTHING AND MOST OF THE FLORA AND FAUNA DIED. THEN MARRA DECIDED TO CREATE NEW CREATURES MORE INTELLIGENT THAN THOSE ALREADY PRESENT ON EARTH, CREATURES THAT HE CALLED HUMANS, THANKS TO THEIR FAITH AND THEIR INTELLIGENCE, THEY MANAGED TO DEFEAT THE SON OF GOD. HUMANS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RESTORE EVERYTHING THAT THE SON OF GOD HAD DESTROYED. THANKS TO THEIR FAITH IN THE GOD MARRA , HUMANS WERE ABLE TO FORGET THE ACTIONS OF THE SON OF GOD WHO BEFORE THEIR BIRTH HAD NO NAME, AND WHOM THEY CALLED ZEDEF. THE YEARS PASSED, HUMANITY EVOLVED, EVERYTHING WAS STABILIZED, THERE WERE THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN GOD AND WHO DID NOT, SOCIETY TRAVELED IN PERFECT BALANCE, NO ONE WAS TORMENTED BY ZEDEF, MAYBE BECAUSE GOD AND HIS SON FOUND A COMPROMISE, MAYBE BECAUSE THE SON OF GOD DIED, NOBODY KNOWS, AND WHAT DO YOU THINK?


TWO WOLVES FABIO DI MAIO - ITALY

BEFORE IN AN UNDEFINED TIME AND SPACE THERE WERE NOTHING: NO LIGHT OR DARK, NO COLD OR HOT, NO SILENT OR NOISE. IN THESE EMPTY VOID NOTHING COULD EXIST NEITHER THE DEATH DIDN’T DARE TO ENTER IN THIS PLACE. BUT WHERE FOR DEATH THERE WAS NOTHING TO TAKE, FOR LIFE WAS THE PERFECT PLACE TO GIVE. AND SO IT WAS IN THIS EMPTY VOID SOMETHING STARTED TO CHANGE, SOMETHING STARTED TO GROW.

HOW EVERYTHING CHANGED AT THE BEGINNING THEY WERE ONE, ONE UNIQUE BEING, THE FIRST ONE IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. BUT FOR THE CREATION, ONE WASN’T ENOUGH. IT COULDN’T EXIST ALL ALONE SO NATURALLY IT SPLITTED IN TWO. “ASK THEM TO CLOSE THEIR EYES” SOUNDS OF TWO WOLVES THESE TWO WERE LITTLE CUBS, PURE AND WILD IN THEIR BEING, BUT WHAT MADE THEM SPECIAL WAS THEIR COMPLEMENTARITY. THEY START TO WANDER ALL AROUND THIS VOID AND THIS WAS HOW THE CREATION STARTED.

HOW THE LIFE-HUMANITY STARTED AS THE AGES PASSED, A NEW WORLD WAS SHAPED INTO WHAT WE KNOW NOWADAYS. THE TWO WOLVES WERE INSEPARABLE WHERE ONE WENT, THE OTHER FOLLOWED. WHILE ONE CREATED THE MOON, THE OTHER MADE THE SUN, AND SO ALL OPPOSITES BECAME PART OF THE REALITY AND WITH THEM SO WAS HUMANITY.

TWO GOOD WOLVES BUT OUR STORY DOESN’T END HERE. SINCE THE CREATION OF THE HUMANS THE TWO WOLVES DISAPPEARED, MANY AND MANY MEN TRIED TO FIND THEM. THEY SEARCHED DESPERATELY FOR THEM IN EVERY CORNER OF THE EARTH, FROM THE DEEPEST OCEAN TO THE HIGHEST PEAK, BUT EVERY SEARCH WAS IN VAIN.


UNTIL ONE DAY, A GRANDFATHER AND HIS GRANDDAUGHTER STOP TO WATCH THE SUN RISE... DURING THE NIGHT A CRUELL BATTLE WAS FOUGHT WHERE MANY BRAVE SOLDIERS FOUND DEATH. THE FIELD IN FRONT OF THEM WAS COVERED FROM THE BLOOD OF THE FALLEN WARRIORS, THE LITTLE GIRL WAS SCARED AND ASKED: "GRANDFATHER, WHY DO MEN FIGHT?" THE OLD MAN, IN A CALM VOICE, ANSWERS HER: "EVERY HUMAN BEING, SOONER OR LATER, IS CALLED UPON TO DO SO. FOR EVERYONE THERE IS ALWAYS A BATTLE LAYED ON THE PATH THAT HAS TO BE FOUGHT, TO BE WON OR LOST. THE EPIC BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO WOLVES. "WHAT WOLVES, GRANDFATHER?" "THE ONES THAT EVERYONE CARRIES WITHIN THEMSELF." THE CHILD COULD NOT UNDERSTAND. FINALLY THE OLD MAN, WHO HAD THE WISDOM OF TIME WITHIN HIM, RESUMED IN HIS CALM TONE. "THERE ARE TWO WOLVES IN EACH OF US. ONE IS THE BLACK WOLF WITH BRIGHT LIGHTENING EYES AND LIVES ON HATRED, JEALOUSY, ENVY, RESENTMENT, FALSE PRIDE, LIES AND SELFISHNESS." THE OLD MAN PAUSED AGAIN, THIS TIME TO GIVE HER A CHANCE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HE HAD JUST SAID. "AND THE OTHER?" "THE OTHER IS THE WHITE WOLF, WITH A COAT BRIGHT AS THE FULL MOON AND EYES DEEP AS THE DARKEST NIGHT. HE LIVES BY PEACE, LOVE, HOPE, GENEROSITY, COMPASSION, HUMILITY AND FAITH." THE CHILD STOOD THINKING FOR A MOMENT ABOUT WHAT HER GRANDFATHER HAD JUST TOLD HER. THEN SHE GAVE VOICE TO HER CURIOSITY AND THOUGHT. "AND WHICH WOLF WINS?" THE OLD WISE MAN TURNED TO LOOK AT HER AND ANSWERED WITH CLEAR EYES: "THE ONE YOU FEED THE MOST." THEN HE CONTINUED: “YOU SEE IN LIFE,IN OUR LIFE, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU DO, THE TWO WOLVES WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU. BE CAREFUL TO RESPECT AND TREAT THEM EQUALLY TO LIVE AN EXISTENCE IN PEACE AND BALANCE. SO SEARCH DEEP WITHIN YOU FOR THE BLACK WOLF AND FLY HIGH INTO THE BRIGHT SKY FOR THE WHITE ONE. GET TO KNOW THEM AND COEXIST WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL BE THE ONES TO HELP YOU, ONE IN THE DARKEST AND MOST DIFFICULT MOMENTS OF YOUR LIFE, WHILE THE OTHER WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO JUMP HIGHER THAN THE STARS UPON IN THE SKY WHEN IT IS TIME TO REJOICE. GROW IN BALANCE MY DEAR”

THE BEGINNIG OF THE END VLADISLAV CALESTRU - NORWAY

OUR STORY STARTS WITH CHAOS, PURE UNLIMITED UNSHAPED MASS OF ROW, PRIMORDIAL ENERGY, FLOWING AND BLOWING IN THE SIDERAL SPACE. THE MATTER WAS A PURE STREAM OF MINUSCULE PARTICLES, FORMING ALL TOGETHER AN ENDLESS SPACE RIVER. THE CAOTHIC AND RANDOM MOVEMENT OF THE MATTER EXPANDING INFINITELY, ENCOUNTERING AND PASSING BY MORE ENERGY-DENSE AREAS OF THE SPACE LET THE CREATION OF AGGLOMERATE OF FIRST PROTOTYPE OF ELEMENTS AS WE KNOW, FROM THE SIMPLEST ONES TO MORE COMPLEX ONES. IN THIS WAY ALL OF THIS ELEMENTS STARTED TO BE PUSHED AND FORCED BY THE COSMIC ENERGY TO GATHER AND CREATE THE FIRST GALAXIES, COSTELLATIONS, PLANETS, STARS AND BLACK HOLES, BUT YET NO PROPER FORM OF LIFE. THEN FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE ALL KNOWN, OF THE DEEPEST SPACE, WHERE THE CONCENTRATION OF COSMIC ENERGY AND MATTER WAS SO DENSE, PURE AND POWERFUL, A LITTLE FLAME STARTED TO SPREAD AND TO EMBRACE EVERYTHING. SOMETHING NEW AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE WAS BORN, SOMETHING SO POWERFUL AND LIMITLESS STARTED TO MANIFEST ITSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME, SOMETHING WE COULD CALL THE ORIGIN OF LIFE, OR GOD ITSELF. THE SIDERAL STREAMS HELPED THIS LITTLE FLAME TO MOVE AND EXPAND, TO ACQUIRE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE EXISTING MATTER AND MOLECULES. LITTLE BY LITTLE THE FLAME GREW BIGGER AND BIGGER TILL THE POINT IT REACHED AND TOUCHED ALL THE PRESENT BEING AND SHARING WITH IT ITS ENERGY, ALLOWING THE PROCESS OF GENERATING AND CREATING MATTER AND GIVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND MORE AND MORE. WHILE THE FLAME WAS IN THIS PROCESS, IN ORDER TO HAVE MORE CONTROL ON THE EXISTENCE AND TO MOVE FREELY IN THE UNIVERSE, DURING HIS EXPANSION ACCIDENTALY CREATED SOMETHING NEW, SIMULTANEOUSLY IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE UNIVERSE, SOMETHING THAT WE CALL NOW LIFE. PLANTS AND MICRORGANISM STARTED TO SPREAD WERE THE CONDITIONS TO LIFE WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO MANIFEST. DURING HIS EXPANSION OUR NEWBORN GOD STARTED ALSO TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING HE NEVER FELT BEFORE. CURIOSITY, HAPPINESS, CONFUSION, RAGE, LOVE, ANGER, WONDER, SADNESS, MISERY, PAIN, JOY AND MORE FEELINGS STARTED TO MANIFEST IN HIS CONSCIOUSNESS, SOMETHING HE NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE. THIS HAPPENED AFTER THE FIRST EMOTION APPEARD TO HIM, DURING HIS JOURNEY THROUGHOUT THE SPACE, A VERY POWERFULL ONE: SADNESS. YES, HE FELT SAD BECAUSE HE REALIZED NOBODY ELSE WAS THERE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF CREATION, NOBODY WAS COMPLEX ENOUGH TO COMPREHEND THE MAGNIFICENCE OF HIS BEING EXCEPT ITSELF. SO HE SHRINKED ITSELF IN A SHAPE OF A LITTLE SPHERE AND STARTED TO ROLL AROUND THE UNIVERSE, CRYING AND SHOUTING IN DISPAIR, HOPING THAT SOMETHING OR SOMEBODY WILL HEAR HIM. FROM HIS TEARS, FLOWING IN ALL THE DIRECTIONS, WATER STARTED TO SPREAD IN SOME PLANETS, WATERING PLANTS, CREATING POUNDS, RIVERS, LAKES, SEAS, OCEANS. FROM HIS SHOUTING AND SCREAMING WINDS AROSE, TEMPESTS SPRED ALL OVER, TYPHOONS STARTED TO CROSS THE LANDS. HUGE MASSES OF ROCK WERE LIFTED LIKE FEATHERS, CREATING MOUNTAINS AND HILLS, VALLEYS, CANYONS AND DEEP RAVINES.


IN SOME PLACES THE WIND WAS SO STRONG AND POWERFUL THEY PULVERIZED THE ROCKS, COVERING THE LANDSCAPES WITH FINE SANDS. THANKS TO THE WATER FINALLY IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR NEW FORMS OF BEING TO MANIFEST THEMSELVES: LITTLE ONES LIKE INSECTS, FUNGI, AND BACTERIAS, AND BIGGER ONES LIKE MAMMALS, FISHES, BIRDS, REPTILES.... THE ASTONISHING PART OF THIS CREATION WAS NOT ONLY THE DIVERSITY OF ALL OF THE NEW FORMS OF LIFE BUT ALSO THE FACT THAT WITH HIS TEARS, OUR GOD, SHARED ALSO THE CONCEPT OF HIS FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS HOPING THAT SOMEHOW ONE OF THOSE CREATURES WOULD HELP HIM TO PROCESS AND ANALYZE PROPERLY WHAT HE WAS EXPERIENCING. BUT NOTHING OF THIS HAPPENED. INSTEAD, WITH THEIR FEARS AND BELIEFS ALL THE CREATURES WERE CONCERNED TO PRESERVE THEMSELVES, TO PROTECT FROM THEIR BIGGER PREDATORS AND TO FIND NEW WAYS TO CATCH THEIR PREYS. EVEN IF THEY WERE CARRYING A PIECE OF GOD WITH THEM THEY COULDN'T FIND TIME TO TRY TO HELP HIM. SO DISAPPOINTED AND CONFUSED, THE GOD THOUGHT THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE SOME PROPER HELP HE HAD TO MANAGE HIS PROBLEMS ITSELF, AND STARTED TO THINK AND TO IMAGINE WITCH TYPE OF CREATURE HE COULD POSSIBLY CREATE IN ORDER TO NOT FEEL ANYMORE OVERWHELMED BY HIS EMOTIONS. STARTING FROM THE SUCCESSFUL CONCEPTS HE BROUGHT TO LIFE, HE COMBINED AND MIXED THEM WITH DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATTER AND ENERGY, COMBINING THEM INTO INFINITE SHAPES AND COMBINATIONS, LOOKING FOR HIS FINAL CREATION. THIS IS HOW FLOCKS OF PEGASUS STARTED TO CROSS THE SKYS, UNICORNS STROLL AROUND WITH MINOTAURS, CENTAURS AND FAUNS, FAIRIES WERE WANDERING, DRAGONS, DWARVES, ELFS AND ORCS, HYDRAS AND CHIMERAS, WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES, DJINS AND SPHINXES, AND ALL OF THE OTHER CREATURES LEGENDS FABLES AND MYTHS TELL US ABOUT. AFTER GIVING THE BIRTH TO ALL OF THIS MAGNIFICENT CREATURES AND LET THEM SPREAD ALL AROUND THE UNIVERSE, OUR GOD NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A RECURRENT PATTERN IN SOME OF THE SPECIES, SOMETHING THAT WAS A CORE THREAD THAT COULD POSSIBLY LEAD TO HIS FINAL ULTIMATE CREATION, A CREATURE THAT WILL FINALLY HELP HIM TO MAKE SENSE OF HIS EXISTENCE. IN A VERY DARK AND QUIET NIGHT, HE GATHERED A PROPONENT OF EVERY LIVING BEING FROM THE UNIVERSE AND AS MUCH STARS AS POSSIBLE ON A VERY SMALL AND UNINHABITED PLANET, FULL OF VERY BEAUTIFUL AND DIVERSE VEGETATION, CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS, ASTONISHING LANDSCAPES, TO BEAR WITNESS TO HIS LAST BUT NOT LEAST MASTERPIECE: THE FIRST OF ALL HUMANS WAS FINALLY BORN! THIS WILL BE THE END OF OUR STORY, MAYBE NOT A PROPER END BECAUSE WE JUST DISCOVERED ALL THE CHARACTERS, HOW EVERYTHING WAS CREATED, BUT I LET YOUR IMAGINATION TO FILL THE GAPS AND TO FIND A PROPER CONTINUATION TO THIS STORY, AND MAYBE ONE DAY WE WILL HEAR MORE STORIES FROM THE PROSPECTIVE OF OUR GOD!


МАВКА VITALII SHYSHARYN, SVITLANA MUSIICHUK - NORWAY

IDARKNESS…. LIGHT….. THEY WERE AT THE BEGINNING. IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE WAS A STATE WHERE LIVED GODS, THEY WERE SO POWERFUL, EACH OF THEM HAD SOME ENERGY AND SOME KNOWLEDGES. ONE DAY GODS STARTED TO ARGUE BETWEEN THEM: THEY WANTED TO DECIDE WHO IS BETTER AND MORE POWERFUL. THEY DIVIDED INTO TWO GROUPS, AND ONE DAY THEY HAD A BATTLE, THIS BATTLE WAS VERY HORRIBLE, GODS CHANGED ALL THEIR ENERGY TO NEGATIVE, FAMILIES STARTED TO FIGHT BETWEEN EACH OTHER, BROTHERS KILLED BROTHERS, CHILDREN BETRAYED THEIR PARENTS, EVERYONE USED THEIR KNOWLEDGES O KILL EACH OTHER, AND ONE DAY WORLD WAS OVERFULL OF NEGATIVE ENERGY, AND GODS FLEW OFF TO TWO OPPOSITE SIDES: TO HEAVEN AND TO UNDERGROUND. BUT THAT PLACE IN NOWHERE WAS SO MAGIC AND MAGNIFICENT THAT SLY AND CUNNING HUMANS WENT THERE TO LIVE ON THE SECOND DAY AFTER GODS DISAPPEARED FROM THERE. THEY CALLED THAT PLACE ZAKOPANE. BUT THE SITUATION OF GODS WAS MUCH MORE COMPLICATED. FAMILIES WERE SPLITED, AND AFTER SOME TIME GODS WANTED TO REUNITE THEIR STATE AND TO LIVE AS BEFORE, BUT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. SOME OF DESPERATE GODS WANTED TO ESCAPE TO ZAKOPANE, TO THEIR PLACE OF JOY AND CHEAP BEER. BUT IT WAS BAD IDEA, BECAUSE THERE ALREADY LIVED ERASMUS STUDENTS AT VILLA JIZEFOVA, AND IF THE GODS WOULD SEE THAT ERASMUS PARTICIPANTS CALLED ZAKOPANE PROTOPOLIS AND ZEUS ORGANIZED COALITION WITH (MATHIAS GOD) AGAINST FREYA, THEY WOULD DIE RIGHT ON THERE, AND NO POWER WOULD SAVE THEM. BUT AS WE ALL KNOW, THERE IS NO COMMUNITY OR GROUP OF PEOPLE WITHOUT LITTLE REBELS, WHO THINK THAT THEY ARE THE SMARTESTS. BOTH STATES OF GODS( IN THE HEAVEN AND IN UNDERGROUND) WERE NOT EXCEPTION. ONE DAY A YOUNG GODDES MAVKA, WAS BORED IN THE UNDERGROUND KINGDOM, AND SHE SUDDENLY HEARD THE NOISE OF ERASMUS PARTY, AND WHEN SHE HEARD THAT THERE ARE NORVEGIANS WHO TELLIMG STORY ABOUT WORLD CREATION IN SCANDINAVIC MYTHOLOGY, SHE WAS VERY INTERESTED, BUT WHEN SHE HEARD THAT THEY BRING ALCOHOL FOR THEIR CULTURAL NIGHT, SHE MADE HARD DECISION TO RISK, AND TO TRY JOIN THEIR PARTY.


SHE TOOK HER GLASS FOR DRINKS, AND STARTED JOURNEY. SHE DECIDED TO GO WITH SHORTER BUT MORE DANGEROUS WAY, THROUGH THE DARK FOREST. BUT SHE WAS NOT THE ONLY GODDESS WHO WAS THIRSTY TO ALCOHOL. A YOUNG GOD FROM ANOTHER KINGDOM, WHOSE NAME WAS CHUHAISTER STARTED JOURNEY AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE SAME PURPOSE. THEY MET IN THE FOREST BEFORE VILLA JOZEFOWA, AND STARTED TO ARGUE WHO SHOULD COME FIRST. MAVKA TOLD THAT SHE IS A GIRL AND THAT CHUHAISTER SHOULD LET HER BE FIRST, BUT CHUHAISTER TOLD THAT THIS IS SEXISM AND THAT HE SHOULD GO FIRST. THIS ARGUE WAS VERY STRONG, BUT THOSE YOUNG GODS WERE WITH EXPERIENCE IN FIGHTING, AND THEY KNEW THAT THERE’S NO OTHER OPTION ONLY AS “ROCK PAPER SCISSORS”. THE FIGHT OF ROCK PAPER SCISSORS WAS VERY SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT. CHUHAISTER AND MAVKA SPENT SO MUCH TIME FOR THE BATTLE. AS RESULT THEY MISSED ALL THE ALCOHOL, AND DURING THEIR FIGHT THEY SPENT ALL THEIR POWER TO “ROCK PAPER SCISSORS” AND FORGOT THE WAY BACK HOME. BECAUSE THEY STUCK IN THE FOREST, GOOGLE MAPS WERE NOT AVAILABLE THERE TO USE. SO, MAVKA AND CHUAHAISTER STAYED IN THE LITTLE FOREST FOREVER. THEY FROM TIME TO TIME SEND DEER OR RED CAT OR LITTLE GOD TO ERASMUS PARTICIPANTS AS HOPE THAT KIND PARTICIPANTS WILL GO TO FOREST AND FIND MAVKA AND CHUHAISTER AND WILL SAVE THEM.


A MAGICAL WORK IN PROGRESS VRYSIOTI ORIGIN STORY ELISSAVET AFRODYTI VRYSIOTI - GREECE

SEVEN EARTHLY DAYS AGO, A YOUNG WIZARD NAMED RINCEWIND WENT TO THE UNSEEN UNIVERSITY, THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS OF WIZARDING SCHOOLS. BUT DO NOT BE FOOLED, FOR RINCEWIND WAS FAR FROM BEING THE BRILLIANT STUDENT THAT WAS EXPECTED TO STUDY AT A UNIVERSITY OF THIS CALIBER. HIS FATHER WAS JUST FRIENDS WITH THE PRINCIPAL. OH RINCEWIND WAS NOT A GOOD STUDENT AT ALL. IN POTION CLASS HE ONCE PUT ONE KILOGRAMME OF PEPPERINIOUS INSTEAD OF ONE GRAM AND EFFECTIVELY PUT ALL OF HIS CLASS INTO A SNEEZING FRENZY WHICH LASTED ONE WEEK. IN A LAST EFFORT TO IMPRESS HIS TEACHERS AND GET AT LEAST A PASSING GRADE, HE TOOK UP A CONJURING CLASS, ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING CLASSES IN HIS UNIVERSITY. HIS FINAL EXAM? CREATING A UNIVERSE FROM SCRATCH. THE PREMISE OF THE PROJECT BY ITSELF WAS PRETTY SIMPLE: CONJURE A UNIVERSE, ADD A FEW ORIGINAL SINGLE-CELL ORGANISMS AND LET EVOLUTION RUN ITS COURSE. TEN DAYS LATER YOU WERE TO SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT TO THE PROFESSOR. IF YOUR UNIVERSE MANAGED TO SURVIVE YOU WOULD PASS THE CLASS. SOUNDS PRETTY SIMPLE RIGHT? WELL OF COURSE IT SOUNDS PRETTY SIMPLE TO YOU MORTALS BUT FOR ANY PERSON THAT HAS DABBLED IN MAGIC IT SOUNDS LIKE PURE NIGHTMARE. THOUGH RINCEWIND HAS NOT REALLY "DABBLED" IN MAGIC. FOR RINCEWIND MAGIC IS AN OLD FRIEND WHO GREETED HIM FROM ACROSS THE STREET BUT ONLY GOT AN AWKWARD WAVE IN RETURN BECAUSE RINCEWIND FORGOT HIS GLASSES. AND SO IT SOUNDED AS SIMPLE TO HIM AS IT SOUNDED TO YOU. THREE MONTHS BEFORE THE DEADLINE RINCEWIND WAS DRINKING BEER WITH HIS BUDDIES. TWO MONTHS BEFORE HE WAS DRINKING BEER WITH HIS BUDDIES. BUT ONE MONTH BEFORE, HE WAS DRINKING BEER WITH HIS BUDDIES. TWENTY DAYS BEFORE HE GOT TIRED OF DRINKING BEER AND THE FLEETING THOUGHT THAT HE SHOULD START THE PROJECT ENTERED HIS MIND, BUT WAS QUICKLY DISSIPATED. FINALLY, ONE WEEK BEFORE THE DEADLINE HE STARTED CREATING A SMALL UNIVERSE AS HIS PROJECT, ONLY 40 BILLION YEARS IN DIAMETER. REALISING THAT HE WOULD NEVER MAKE IT IN TIME, HE DECIDED TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF A SHORTCUT; INSTEAD OF LETTING THE SINGLE-CELL ORGANISMS EVOLVE BY THEMSELVES, HE WOULD PLANT ABOUT 10 BILLION FULLY EVOLVED CREATURES IN ONE PLANET AND HOPE HIS PROFESSOR WOULDN'T NOTICE. AND SO, HE PUT HIS CREATION IN FAST-FORWARD AND WENT TO DRINK BEER ONCE AGAIN WITH HIS BUDDIES.


MEANWHILE THE CREATURES, CONFUSED AND ANGRY THAT THEY WERE BROUGHT INTO EXISTENCE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT, STARTED A WAR BETWEEN THEM THAT RESULTED IN NEARLY 3 BILLION CASUALTIES. AFTER TWO EARTHLY DAYS OF BLOODY BATTLE, RINCEWIND GOT OVER HIS TERRIBLE HANGOVER AND FINALLY DECIDED TO AT LEAST TAKE A PEAK AT HIS UNIVERSE. MUCH TO HIS HORROR HE FOUND HIS OWN CREATION SLOWLY KILLING ITSELF AND IN ORDER TO PREVENT FURTHER BLOODSHED HE ERASED THE ENTIRE POPULATION'S MEMORY AND REPLACED IT WITH MEMORIES OF LOVE, COMPASSION AND COOPERATION. LATER HE ONCE AGAIN PUT HIS UNIVERSE IN FAST-FORWARD AND WENT TO DRINK BEER WITH HIS BUDDIES. ON THE THIRD DAY OF THEIR GENESIS, THE CREATURES EASILY BEGAN FORMING SOCIETIES, BLISSFULLY UNAWARE OF THE BILLIONS THAT PERISHED BY THEIR HAND. HOWEVER, THERE WAS ONE THING THAT THEY CARRIED FROM THEIR VIOLENT PAST AND THAT WAS A SMALL FRUSTRATION REGARDING THE ORIGIN OF THEIR EXISTENCE. UNABLE TO COME UP WITH A LOGICAL EXPLANATION, THEY FOOLISHLY STARTED TO BELIEVE THAT THEIR ENTIRE MICROSCOPIC UNIVERSE WAS BUT AN EGG IN THE BEGINNING, WHICH RANDOMLY EXPLODED AFTER IN A NATURAL EVENT THEY CALLED "THE BIG BOOM". IT TOOK A FEW CENTURIES, BUT THIS BECAME THE MOST POPULAR THEORY AND FOR SOME TIME THEY FOUND COMFORT IN BELIEVING THEIR EXISTENCE WAS ESSENTIALLY AN ACCIDENT. LITTLE WOULD THEY KNOW THAT AN ACCIDENT IT WAS. NOW FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE DEADLINE, RINCEWIND'S PROJECT WAS ALMOST READY, BUT AS THE DILIGENT STUDENT THAT HE WAS, HE TOOK A LAST LOOK AT HIS PERFECTED UNIVERSE. THERE HE WITNESSED THE RISE OF CIVILIZATION BUT ALSO THE WORSHIP OF THE FALSE THEORY. A LITTLE OFFENDED AND DISAPPOINTED THAT NOT EVEN HIS OWN CREATION RECOGNIZED HIS EXISTENCE, HE SENT A CREATURE NAMED ELIROI FILLED WITH THE TRUE KNOWLEDGE IN ORDER TO SPREAD THE TRUTH AND IN THE PROCESS, SAVE HIS GRADES. AND THIS IS WHERE OUR STORY ENDS, AS RINCEWIND STILL HAS A FEW MORE DAYS TO POLISH SOME THINGS AND SUBMIT HIS PROJECT. LET'S ALL HOPE THAT ELIROI WILL BE SUCCESSFUL IN SPREADING THE MESSAGE, BECAUSE RINCEWIND CAN BE QUITE THE DESTRUCTIVE FELLOW WHEN THINGS DON'T GO HIS WAY.


THE COMPLETION OF THE CIRCLE ANDRIANA DRAGATAKI - GREECE

…THE TIME HAS COME. THE JUDGEMENT HAS BEGUN. NOT ONLY FOR HUMANS, BUT ALSO FOR GODS, EVEN THE GREATEST ONES. NO ONE COULD ESCAPE FROM THE COMMON FATE THAT UNITES EVERYONE... THE TRAGEDY STARTED BY THE HUMANS. FOR DECADES, HUMANS MISUSE THE GIFTS FROM GODS AND THE PRIVILEGES OF THEIR EXISTENCE. IN EARTH DOMINATES A LONGSTANDING WAR. HUMANS ARE DYING; MANY SPECIES EXTINCT AND THE ENVIRONMENT GETS MORE AND MORE INFECTED. THE HUMANS ARE ALREADY GENOCIDES. AS A RESULT, THEY END UP HATING AND KILLING EACH OTHER. HOW CAN A GENRE EXIST WITH SUCH A HOSTILE ATTITUDE EVEN TO ITS OWN KIND? AND THAT’S FAITH STARTS DYING, NOT ONLY FOR HUMANS THEMSELVES BUT FOR GODS, TOO. AFTERWARDS, HOW A GOD EXISTS WITHOUT THE HUMANS’ FAITH? THE IRON AGE IS ON ITS PEAK, HUMANITY IS ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL. THE HUMANS LIVE IN MISERY, THEY FORGOT ABOUT THE VIRTUES AND THEY CONSTANTLY OFFEND THEIR GODS. THE DISASTERS ARE SO RADICAL THAT EVEN THE GODS ARE AFFECTED. THE MOST OF THEM ARE ALREADY DIVIDED ON HOW THEY SHOULD MANAGE THE HUMAN GENRE. HOW THEY MUST ACT? HOW CAN THEY USE THEIR COSMIC AND UNIVERSAL FUNCTIONS TO BRING THE BALANCE AGAIN? IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE, WHILE EVEN THE GODS ARE DIVIDED AND READY TO FIGHT AND WHILE HUMANS HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THEM? THE HOPE DIES EVEN FOR GODS AND SOME OF THEM HAVE ALREADY ACCEPTED THE ENDING OF THIS CIRCLE OF EXISTENCE. SOME OF THEM WANT THE EXTINCTION OF THE HUMAN BEING, SOME OTHERS WANT TO TAKE BACK THE GIFT OF COGNITION AND MAKE US INFERIOR BEINGS, AS MANY GODS WHERE SICK BY THE HUMANITY’S TOXICITY, AND OTHERS WANT TO HELP THEM FIND THEIR PATH AGAIN. THE FATHERS DECIDE TO STAY INACTIVE, AS THEY DON’T KNOW IF THEY MUST USE THEIR POWERS OF CREATION AND DESTRUCTION, THE SONS ASK FOR ANOTHER REINCARNATION BUT IT IS PROHIBITED ‘’IF THEY HAVEN’T LEARN YET, THEY WILL NEVER LEARN’’. ONLY MOTHERS CAN SEE CLEARLY THROUGH THEIR SADNESS. ONE NIGHT HUMANITY EXPERIENCED A GREAT DEVASTATION. THE HUMANS CHANNELLED ALL THEIR HATRED AND ANGER TO EACH OTHER. THEY KILLED EACH OTHER VIOLENTLY AND THE BOMBS DESTROYED THE LARGEST VIABLE PART OF THE PLANET. A FEW THOUSAND SURVIVED, IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE THERE WAS NO LONGER ANY DRINKING WATER OR FOOD. THE END WAS NEAR. THAT MOMENT, THE SONS HASTED TO GO DOWN TO EARTH TO HELP THE HUMANS, BUT THE OTHER GODS GOT IN THE WAY. AND THAT’S HOW THE WAR REACHED THE HEAVENS. THE MOTHERS COULDN’T STAY INACTIVE. THEY DIDN’T WHAT TO SEE THE WORLD DISAPPEAR IN THIS INGLORIOUS WAY. THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES WHO COULD HELP SUBSTANTIALLY AS THEY CARRY WITHIN THEM THE GIFT OF CREATING LIFE. SO, THEY DECIDED TO MAKE A SECRET RITUAL OF SELF-SACRIFICE TO GIVE BIRTH TO A NEW GOD TO WHOM THEY’D LEAVE THEIR LAST HOPES. EVEN THEY CAME FROM DIFFERENT RELIGIONS THEY KNEW WHAT THEY HAD TO DO, EVEN IF IT WAS THEIR LAST THING. THEY SECRETLY WENT AFAR (SOMEWHERE, I DON’T KNOW YET), THEY MADE A CIRCLE AND THROUGH THEIR SORROW THEY STARED TO SPELLING THEIR LAST INVOCATION.


‘’ALL OUR SACRED ENERGY WE PASS IT TO YOU, ALONG WITH OUR PURPOSE. YOU WILL BECOME DIVIDED AND YOU WILL BE THE ONE TOO CHOOSE THE OUTCOME OF OUR ACTIONS. NEITHER THE GODS CAN STOP YOU WHEN YOU REACH THEIR LEVEL. WE WILL HELP YOU TO OBTAIN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WHOLE, AND WE WILL PROTECT YOU AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. BUT BE CAREFUL, IT WILL BE A VERY DIFFICULT TASK, ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO HAPPEN, BUT YOU ARE OUR LAST HOPE. ALL OUR DIVINITY WE PASS IT TO YOU, OUR CHILD.’’ AFTER THEIR LAST WORDS, A NEW STAR CREATED BY THEIR SPIRITS AND FLEW AWAY TO THE UNIVERSE. THROUGH HIS MOTHERS’ DEATH, THE NEW SEED COULD SEEK FOR LIFE. ITS IMPACT AND TENSION ARE SO INTENSE THAT THE CIRCLE OF THE WHOLE VIBRATED FOR A MOMENT. EVERYONE FELT THIS NEW FORCE FOR JUST A MOMENT; GODS, HUMANS, ANIMALS, NATURE, PLANETS. AFTER THAT MOMENT, IT GOT FORGOTTEN AGAIN. WHEN THE STAR REACHED THE UNIVERSE, HE COULD ONLY FEEL EMPTINESS AND HIS EXISTENCE FLOATING INTO THE DARKNESS. AT FIRST HE FEARED THE VOID, UNTIL IT FELT ITS PROTECTION AND THEIR COEXISTING IMPACT. HE SOON REALISED THAT HE WAS SELF-ILLUMINATED. HE WAS ENLIGHTENING THE DARKNESS AND GIVING MEANING TO ITS EXISTENCE. THROUGH DARKNESS AND LIGHT, HE LEARNT ALL THE UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES OF EXISTENCE AND CO-EXISTENCE OF THE WHOLE/CIRCLE. SUDDENLY, HE STARTED HEARING SOUNDS THAT MADE MELODIES. AND SOON, THESE MELODIES TRANSMITTED ESSENTIAL MEANINGS TO HIM. AND THROUGH THESE MEANINGS HE OBTAINED THAT KNOWLEDGE HUMANS USED TO CALL PHILOSOPHY. THAT’S WHERE MORALS AND ETHICS COME FROM. DURING THIS PROCESS, DUKE, ANUBIS AND THE OTHER GODS WHO ARE GIFTED WITH PRINCIPLES, FELT THEIR GIFTS AWAKENING. THEY FELT THE BEATING OF LIFE AGAIN. NOW HE IS READY TO REACH THE NEXT LEVEL. THIS REALISATION LED TO AN EXPLOSION OF THE SPECTRUM OF COLOURS. THESE COLOURS COULD REFLECT FORMS ON HIS VISION. SO, A NEW MEANING TO THE UNIVERSE HAS NOW GIVEN TO HIM, AS HE COULD SEE THE OTHER STARS AND THE PLANETS, THAT BEFORE, HE COULD ONLY FEEL THEM SINGING. HE COULD SEE THEIR ROTATIONS OF THE SONGS THAT TALKED TO HIM IN THE COMPLETE DARKNESS. AND THROUGH THIS OBSERVING HE OBTAINED THE KNOWLEDGE OF COSMIC LAWS, THAT HUMANS CALL SCIENCES; MATHS, PHYSICS, GEOMETRY, CHEMISTRY. THROUGH THIS KNOWLEDGE HE COULD UNDERSTAND THE LAWS OF CREATION AND EXISTENCE. THAT MOMENT, HE FELT HIMSELF BURNING AND BECOMING STIFF. NOW, HE COULD MOVE TO THE UNIVERSE. ALL THIS KNOWLEDGE HE OBTAINED, HELPED HIM TO GET EVOLVED INTO A COMET. THE GODS OF THE UNIVERSE, WHO HAVE THE HOMONYMOUS PLANETS, FELT THROUGH THEM THE EXISTENCE OF SOMETHING NEW AND POWERFUL. THESE GODS WERE AFRAID OF WHAT WAS ABOUT TO COME. CRONUS COULD FEEL THE TIME OF JUDGEMENT ARRIVING.


AS A COMET, HE TRAVELLED ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. HE SHOULD FIND THE PORTAL TO THE NEXT STAGE. HE CROSSED A HUGE PART OF IT UNTIL HE SAW EARTH. THAT MOMENT HIS WHOLE BODY GOT MAGNETISED AND HIS ORBIT CHANGED. HE GOT MAGNETISED BY EARTH. HE WAS MOVING TOWARDS ITS ATMOSPHERE WITH THE HIGHEST SPEED THAT HE COULD ACQUIRE. WHEN HE REACHED THE ATMOSPHERE THE EARTH’S PRESSURE WAS SO TENSE THAT THE COMET STARTED BURNING. THAT’S HOW HE TOOK THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ELEMENT OF FIRE ON ITS DIFFERENT FORMS. THROUGH THE CARBON DIOXIDE THE FIRE RELEASED HE PASS INTO THE AIR, UNTIL A CLOUD PASSED, ABSORBED IT AND MADE HIM A DROP OF WATER. AFTER A WHILE, THE RAIN STARTED AND HE ENDED UP INTO A RIVER’S WATER. SOON, HE ENDED UP IN THE SEA, BUT A PART OF IT WAS ALREADY ABSORBED BY THE SOIL. THAT WAS THE ELEMENT OF EARTH. THAT’S HOW HE OBTAINED THE KNOWLEDGE OF ELEMENTS (AND THEIR COMBINATIONS). IN THIS PROCESS, THE GODS OF THE ELEMENTS FELT A NEW ENERGY ENTERING AND CONFORMING TO THEIR ELEMENTS. THESE GODS COULD ALREADY FEEL LOSING THEIR FUNCTIONS OF THAT WAS ABOUT TO ARISE. IN THE SOIL THE HATCHING GOD DEGRADED AND ABSORBED BY THE ROOTS OF THE PLANTS AND SOME SEEDS. HE COULD NOW FEEL HIS EXISTENCE REACHING ANOTHER LEVEL AGAIN. HE WAS FEELING HIMSELF GIVING BREATH TO THE OTHER LIVING BEINGS. HE COULD FEEL THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANTS FOR LIFE. FOR SOME MOMENTS THE EARTH BECAME FERTILE AGAIN, BUT IT DIDN’T LAST FOR LONG. SOON, HE FELT THE HOSTILITY AND SICKNESS OF HIS ENVIRONMENT AND IN THE END OF THE DAY THE MOST PLANTS WERE DEAD AGAIN. DURING THE NIGHT HE FELT TWO DIFFERENT STAGES; THE STAGE OF DECOMPOSITION AND THE STAGE OF TRANSMISSION OF FERTILITY. BUT THERE WAS SOME OTHER KIND OF EXISTENCE THAT MADE IT. AT DAWN OF THE NEXT DAY HE COULD FEEL THROUGH THESE OTHER BEINGS THAT HELP TO THE TRANSMISSION OF LIFE AND DEATH AND THE DEPENDENCE OF PLANTS FROM THEM. THESE DECOMPOSERS AND TRANSMITTERS ARE THE INSETS AND SOON HE COULD FEEL THROUGH THEIR SENSORS. THEY HAD A SMALL LIFE, JUST FOR THIS PURPOSE. NOW, HE OBTAINED THE KNOWLEDGE OF INTERACTION IN PRACTICE AND HE STARTED TO UNDERSTAND BETTER SOME OF THE PRINCIPLES OF COEXISTENCE. AT THE SAME TIME HE FELT HIS PERCEPTION EXTREMELY LIMITED, AS HE ALREADY DETECTED THE EXISTENCE OF SOME SUPERIOR BEINGS WHICH HAVE HEIGHTENED SENSES. HE WANTED SO MUCH TO GO FURTHER AND REACH THEIR LEVEL, SO HIS WISH TRANSMITTED HIM TO THE NEXT LEVEL. THE 6TH DAY, HE WAS READY TO EXPERIENCE LIFE IN THE ANIMAL PERSPECTIVE. NOW HE HAD A BETTER VISION AND HEARING, HE FELT THE SENSE OF TASTE AND SMELL. IN THIS FORM HE EXPERIENCED THE BASIC NEEDS OF HUNGER AND FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL, THIRST, REPRODUCTION AND THE FEELING OF PAIN. AT THE END OF THE DAY HE WAS A MONKEY. HE FOUND SOME PSYCHEDELIC MUSHROOMS, HE ATE THEM AND HE FELT HIS BRAIN BECOMING LUCID. HE FOUND THE WAY TO CREATE FIRE, THROUGH ALL THIS KNOWLEDGE HE HAD. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT HE COULD WALK ONLY ON HIS TWO LEGS, SO THE FRONT ONES WERE FREE TO CREATE. HE WAS ABOUT TO BECOME A HUMAN.


AT THE CRACK OF DAWN OF THE 7TH DAY, HE OPENED HIS EYES. HE DIDN’T HAVE ANY FUR, OR CARVED NAILS, OR WINGS. HE WAS A NAKED BEING WITH A SHARP MIND. HE NOW REALISED HE WAS A HUMAN AND HE COULD COMBINE ALL THIS KNOWLEDGE HE OBTAINED AND REALISED HIS PURPOSE. THE HUMANS NOW ARE A FEW HUNDREDS AND READY TO DIE. HE COULD FEEL THEIR SOULS DRAWN IN DARKNESS AND HEAVY AS A SLIMY TAR. THE ENTITIES TOOK COMPLETE CONTROL OF THEIR EXISTENCE. NO ONE OF THE GODS COULD SAVE THEM. THEY BECAME INFERIOR BEINGS BY THEMSELVES. AND THE EXISTENCE OF GODS WAS DEPENDING ON THEM, AS THEIR EXISTENCE DEPENDS ON THE HUMANS’ FAITH. ‘’BUT WHO COULD THINK OF FAITH WHEN HE ENDED UP TO BE AN ALMOST EXTINCT ENTITY? FULL OF DARKNESS AND WITHOUT ANY PURPOSE OF EXISTENCE? ALL THESE LAST YEARS, DID HUMANS REALLY EXIST? AND IF THEY ENDED UP SO HOSTILE CREATURES, THAT EVEN KILL THEMSELVES, DO THEY DESERVE BEING SAVED AGAIN? BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, THEY USED TO BE A GREAT RACE… THEY OBTAINED ALL THESE KNOWLEDGE AND THEY BUILT GREAT THINGS. THEY GAVE EXISTENCE A DIFFERENT AND MORE COMPLEX MEANING. ‘’ THESE WERE HIS THOUGHT OF THE EXISTENCE OF HUMAN BEING. HE DIDN’T HAVE TIME FOR THESE HUMAN THOUGHTS. HE SHOULD FIND A SAFE PLACE AND THE WAY TO REACH THE FINAL LEVEL. HE COULD ALREADY FEEL THE GODS APPROACHING HIM AND HE SHOULD ACTIVATE THE 100% OF HIS BRAIN BEFORE THEY FIND HIM. HE HAD TO BE VERY FAST. MEANWHILE, THE OTHER GODS FELT THE YOUNG GOD’S ENERGY. THE FREQUENCY OF HIS ENERGY WAS SO TENSE THAT THEY DECIDED TO STOP FIGHTING AND GO AND FIND HIM ALTOGETHER. HE WAS VERY DANGEROUS FOR THEM. THEY THOUGHT THEIR EXISTENCE WAS DEPENDING ON HIM. BUT THEY DIDN’T UNDERSTAND YET THAT ALL OF THEM WERE ALREADY WEAKENED, AS THEIR EXISTENCE WAS DEPENDED ON HUMAN’S FAITH. AND THIS WAS THE ADVANTAGE OF THE NEW GOD. THE YOUNG GOD FOUND A CAVE TO HIDE. HE TRIED TO LOWER HIS ENERGY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. ANYHOW, HE SHOULD CHANNEL IT INSIDE. HE STARTED TO MEDITATE TO ALL THIS KNOWLEDGE HE OBTAINED DURING HIS TRANSFORMATION. HE WAS VISUALISING ALL THESE SYMBOLS AND ENERGY AND HE COULD FEEL EVERY EXISTING BEING. EACH MOMENT HIS ENERGY WAS EXPANDING MORE AND MORE THROUGH THE CIRCLE OF THE WHOLE. HE COULDN’T HIDE HIMSELF ANYMORE. HE FELT THE GODS APPROACHING THEM. BUT SOME OF THEM WERE ALREADY BY HIS SIDE. HE ALREADY KNEW WHAT WAS APPROACHING, BEFORE CRONUS. CRONUS FELT HIM BREAKING THE BARRIER OF TIME. ‘’IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?’’, HE THOUGHT. HE COULD NOW UNDERSTAND THAT NO ONE COULD STOP HIM. THE OTHER GODS JUST FOUND THE CAVE. IT WAS ALREADY EVENING. THE MOMENT THEY WERE ABOUT TO GET IN THE GODS WHO WANTED TO PROTECT THE YOUNG GOD AND HELP HIM TO COMPLETE HIS PURPOSE GOT IN THE WAY. THE YOUNG GOD ALREADY UNLOCKED THE 65% OF HIS BRAIN, BUT HE NEEDED MORE TIME. HE COULD FEEL THE FIGHTING OUTSIDE THE CAVE, BUT HE SHOULDN’T GET DISTRACTED. HE WAS FEELING ALL THE BEINGS DYING, THE TIME WAS ALMOST OVER. EVEN SOME GODS DISAPPEARED DURING THE FIGHT AND THE FREQUENCIES OF THEIR ENERGIES BECAME LOWER AND LOWER.


IN A FEW MINUTES EVERY GOD OF HIS SIDE DISAPPEARED. NOW HE WAS COMPLETELY ALONE AND HE DIDN’T REACH HIS 100% YET. HE NEEDED A LITTLE MORE TIME. THE DAWN WAS APPROACHING. THE GODS GOT IN THE CAVE. THEY WERE ALMOST THERE. BUT WHILE THEY WENT NEAR SOME OF THEM COULDN’T STAND THE YOUNG GOD’S ENERGY. THEY REALISED THAT THEY WERE TOO WEAK. BUT IT WAS THEIR ONLY CHANCE TO BEAT HIM. THE YOUNG GOD UNLOCKED THE 89% OF HIS BRAIN. HE DIDN’T HAVE TIME. ‘’SORRY MOTHERS, I WON’T MAKE IT…’’ THAT MOMENT, RHEA APPEARED AND SHE ASKED CRONUS TO COMBINE THEIR POWERS FOR ONE LAST TIME. ‘’HE’S OUR ONLY HOPE. WE ARE DISAPPEARING ONE BY ONE ANYWAYS. EVERYONE FEELS IT. HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN HELP FOR A POSITIVE OUTCOME.’’, SHE SAID. BY HEARING THESE WORDS, CRONUS DECIDED TO HELP THE YOUNG GOD. SO, HE STOPPED THE TIME FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT FROM THE HATCHING GOD. THAT MOMENT, RHEA CHANGED THE TIME’S FLOW, IN ORDER TO GIVE THE YOUNG GOD MORE TIME. THE TIME WAS PASSING BACKWARDS FOR THE WHOLE UNIVERSE BUT FOR THE YOUNG GOD WAS PASSING FORWARD. THE LAST MOMENT BEFORE THE DAWN THE YOUNG GOOD WAS READY TO ARISE. THE 8TH DAY, WHEN THE SUN WAS RISING, THE GOD UNLOCKED THE 100% OF HIS BRAIN. HE REACHED THE GOD LEVEL JUST IN TIME. SO, WITH THE HELP OF SOME GODS, HE MANAGED TO REACH THE FINAL, INFINITE STAGE. NO ONE COULD TOUCH HIM NOW. THAT DAY, EVERYTHING WAS DIFFERENT. EVERYONE COULD FEEL THIS NEW ENERGY. IN THE UNIVERSE A NEW CONSTELLATION APPEARED, AS WELL AS A PLANET, AND THE SYSTEM’S ORBIT CHANGED. THE ELEMENTS COMBINED IN NEW WAYS AND NEW ELEMENTS GOT CREATED, THERE WERE NEW LAWS IN SCIENCE AND THE PRINCIPLES GOT REMINDED AGAIN BY THE HUMANS. LIGHT AND DARKNESS WERE UNITED AGAIN, AS THE NEW GOD MANAGED TO BUILD AGAIN THE BRIDGE OF UNITY THAT HUMANS DESTROYED IT. THE PLANTS WERE GROWING IN HARMONY, THE INSECTS AND THE ANIMALS WERE PEACEFUL AND THEY WERE BREATHING CLEAN OXYGEN AGAIN. EVEN SOME HUMANS MEDITATED CONSCIOUSLY, THE VERY FEW THAT MAINTAINED THEIR SOUL PURE, WHILE THE OTHERS JUST REALISED THE DEVASTATION THEY CREATED. THE GODS WERE BOWING AT HIM, SOME OF THEM FELT THEIR POWERS COMING BACK AGAIN, AND EVEN THE SPIRITS OF THE EXTINCT GODS APPEARED. EVERYONE SHOULD BE THERE THAT MOMENT. THE HARMONY WAS BACK AGAIN, SO THE BALANCE.

1.CRONUS AND RHEA= THE FLOW OF TIME. CRONUS (ΚΡΌΝΟΣ) = TIME (ΧΡΌΝΟΣ) IN AN ARCHAIC FORM OF ANCIENT GREEK AND RHEA (ΡΈΑ) MEANS FLOW (ΡΟΉ).


I‘’THIS IS HOW YOU SHOULD INTERACT’’, THE NEW GOD SAID. ‘’BUT THIS IS JUST A SHAMBLE OF HOW YOU SHOULD BE IN IDEAL CIRCUMSTANCES. SADLY, THERE IS NO TURNING BACK, EVEN YOU, THE GODS, FORGOT ABOUT YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES YOU HAVE OVER THE OTHER BEINGS ’’, THE NEW GOD SAID. ‘’GIVE US A CHANCE AND WE WILL FIX OUR MISTAKES.’’ ‘’YOU ALREADY HAD TOO MANY CHANCES. THE TIME IS OVER NOW; YOU SHOULD FIX IT BEFORE THIS MOMENT.’’, THE YOUNG GOD SAID. THAT MOMENT EVERYTHING CAME BACK TO NORMAL AGAIN. LIGHT AND DARKNESS WERE SEPARATED, SO THE ELEMENTS, THE PLANTS WERE UNHEALTHY, THE INSECTS AND THE ANIMALS WERE SCARED, THE HUMANS BECAME GLOOMY ENTITIES AGAIN AND THE GODS WEAKENED. ‘’THIS IS THE REALITY THAT YOU DECIDED TO BUILD. I CAN’T HELP YOU, EVEN IF I WANTED TO’’. ‘’YOU MAY COULD, BY THE DECISION OF YOUR NAME. IF IT’S NEEDED YOU CAN TAKE THE FUNCTIONS OF SOMEONE OF US’’, A GOD SAID. ‘’EVERYTHING YOU WANT WILL HAPPEN. THE UNIVERSE IS YOUR NOW. WE WILL DO WHATEVER YOU WANT’’, ANOTHER GOD SAID. ‘’IF YOU NEED ANY HELP, WE CAN HELP YOU. JUST DON’T LET US DISAPPEAR’’, A THIRD GOD SAID. ‘’YOU RUTHLESS BEINGS, YOU JUST AFRAID OF THE JUDGEMENT’S OUTCOME.’’ THE YOUNG GOD RESPONDED. “YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND. THE CIRCLE WILL END ANYWAYS. BUT IT’S UP TO YOU IF IT WILL BE IN A POSITIVE OR A NEGATIVE WAY. AND THE WAY OF COMPLETION WILL AFFECT THE FORTHCOMING CIRCLE. THERE JUDGMENT DEPENDS ON YOUR ACTIONS; AS WELL AS THE UPCOMING SEASON. EVERYONE WILL GET WHAT THEY DESERVE AS A WHOLE AND WILL APPEAR EXACT IN THE PLACE THEY DEFINED BY THEMSELVES INDIVIDUALLY. AS FOR MY NAME, IT IS MY CHOICE. I’M NO NEEDED HERE ANYMORE, I HAVE TO GO FURTHER’’, HE SAID AND HE DISAPPEARED. HIS DISAPPEARANCE LED TO A SUPERNOVA EXPLOSION. THE WHOLE UNIVERSE COLLAPSED. THE CIRCLE CAME TO ITS COMPLETION. NOW, IT’S THE TIME FOR THE RECREATION OF THE WHOLE. REALLY, WHAT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN NEXT?

THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING ANDREEA BALASA& PAU PAYA-POLAND

I AM SURE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE SO USED PHRASED "IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS NOTHING, JUST DARKNESS AND MAYBE A DIM SHADE OF LIGHT THAT CAME FROM A GOD OR A GODDESS, OR AN UNIVERSAL PARTICULE. BUT, TRUTH TO BE TOLD.... THIS IS FAR FROM WHAT YOU THINK WAS THE BEGINNING, FOR SOME OF US, NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE, THE BEGINNING WAS A PEN ON A PAPER. BECAUSE FOR A SELECT CIRCLE OF US, THE TRUTH IS THAT THE BEGINNING IS EXACTLY LIKE A BOOK, A BOOK THAT YOU CHOOSE WHAT DO TO WITH IT, AND HOW TO WRITE IT. SO, ANYTIME YOU FEEL SMALL AND GOOD FOR NOTHING, THE THRUTH IS, YOUR BOOK IS ONLY IN THE MOMENT THAT THE HERO IS GOING FOR THE SPECIAL TRAINING TO HAVE THE WORLD AND ALL HIS LOVED ONES. AND WHERE IS THIS WORLD YOU MAY ASK? INSIDE OF EACH OF US, EVERY LITTLE PART OF US, OUR FEELINGS, OUR MEMORIES, OUR HOPES, THEY ARE OUR UNIVERSE, OUR WORLD, SO FROM THERE IS STARTING YOUR BOOK, YOUR BEGINNING. ANYTIME YOU WANT TO START O NEW HOBBY, A NEW JOB, A NEW RELATIONSHIPS, YOUR BOOK IS GROWING, AND YOUR WORLD IS EXTENDING. IN THIS ORDER, YOUR OWN GODES ARE BORN, YOUR OWN DEMONS AND MYTHS CAN BECAME A TRUTH OF YOUR LIFETIME. LIKE THE STORY OF THE MOST UNLUCKY GOD, WHO WAS ACTUALLY A DEMIGOD, THAT WAS CURSED BY OTHER GODS, ONE BY ONE, IN JUST 5 MINUTES, HE WAS THE ONE BY ONE CURSED TO NEVER BE ABLE TO EN JOY SUN, OR NEVER EAT IN THE SAME WAY, OR EVEN DOOMED TO BECAME A WEREWOLF BURING THE NIGHT, WHEN NO ONE WAS AROUND. THIS UNLUCKY DEMIGOD, THAT LATER BECOMES IMMUNE TO ALL THE CURSES AND METAMORPHOSES INTO A GOD, IS IT SAID THAT IS STILL WALKING THE EARTH IN SEARCH OF TRICKSTERS AND IS TRYING TO PREVENT OTHERS TO BE THE VICTIMS OF THE UNMERCIFUL GODS. SO NEXT TIME YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF, JUST REMEMBER YOU ARE A GOD AND YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY.


FARO APOSTOLAS KOSTULAS, SOFIA GAIDUK - GREECE, POLAND

AT THE BEGINING THERE WAS ONLY VOID. A HUGE EMPTY PLANE WHERE NOTHING EXISTED. COMPLETE EMPTINESS. FROM THAT EMPTINESS A BEEING WAS BORN. A BEAUTIFUL EXISTANCE MADE OUT OF STARS. MYRA. THE BEEING JUST EXCISTED LONELY AND SILENT. OUT OF THE LONELINESS, ANOTHER BEEING CAME INTO EXISTANCE. FARO. MADE OUT OF PURE LIGHT, EXCEPTIONAL AND RADIANT. NOW THERE WAS LIGHT AND MYRAS LONELINESS WAS GONE. THE TWO BEEINGS CAME CLOSE TO EACH OUTHER. AND OUT OF THEIR HAPPINESS A THIRD BEEING WAS BORN. ASTER. ASTER WAS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS. NOT AS GREAT AND MAJESTIC AS THEM. ASTER WAS SMALL AND FULL OF FLAWS. IMPERFECT. ASTER SAW THE GREATNESS OF THE TWO BEEINGS. THEY GOT JEALOUS. THEY COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY WERE NOT BORN AS GREAT AS THEM. ASTER DEVISED A PLAN. THE BEEING ASKED MYRA FOR SOME OF THEIR HAIR. MYRA BEEING THE PURE BEEING THEY WERE SAW NO REASON TO REFUSE. THEY CUT OFF A STRAND OF THEIR HAIR AND GAVE IT TO ASTER. ASTER THEN ASKED FARO FOR THEIR TOUCH. SAYING THEY WERE CREATING A GIFT FOR MYRA. THE HAIR TOOK THE SHAPE OF A SPEAR. A SPEAR MADE OUT OF STARS WITH LIGHT SORROUNDING IT. ONE DAY THAT MYRA WAS IN ANOTHER PART OF THE UNIVERSE ASTER DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO PUT THE PLAN INTO MOTION.


THEY APPROACHED FARO AND WITH ONE FAST MOVE THEY DROVE THEIR SPEAR THROUGH FAROS BODY. WITH A SECOND EVEN FASTER MOVE THEY CUT OF FAROS HEAD. THE HEAD FLEW AWAY AND BECOME THE SUN. ALL OF FAROS BLOOD RUN OUT OF THE WOUND AND THEIR BODY SHRIVELED. BECOMING A MASS OF LAND EMPTY AND DEVOID OF ALL LIFE. DESOLATE. WHEN MYRA CAME BACK AND REALISED WHAT HAD HAPPENED, ALL THEY COULD DO WAS EMBRACE FAROS BODY. SADNESS OVERTOOK THEM. THEY WERE LONELY AGAIN. MYRAS SORROW WAS TOO MUCH, THEY STARTED CRYING. THEIR TEARS DROPPED ONTO FAROS BODY. TEARS AND TEARS. BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPEND, MYRAS GRIEF GAVE NEW LIFE TO FAROS BODY. THE TEARS BECAME GREAT RIVERS, OCEANS AND LAKES. TREES STARTED GROWING. AND THE HUMANS CAME TO LIFE. LIFE CAME BACK INTO EXISTANCE.

ASTER SEEING THEY HAD FAILED. DROVE THE SPEAR THROUGH THEIR BODY. THEIR BODY SHRIVELLED AND BECAME THE MOON.

MYRA STILL TO THIS DAY STANDS AROUND FAROS BODY. SOMETIMES THEY STILL GET SAD. THEIR TEARS NOW THE RAIN, STILL BRING NEW LIFE.

THATS THE STORY OF OUR WORLD FARO, JOY AND SORROW. DEATH AND REBIRTH. ALL MOVING AROUND IN A CIRCULAR MOTION. AT LEAST THATS WHAT WE THOUGHT...
