And they fell into the fire, and were consumed, and their greatness passed out of this world forever. But before they fell, they raised up their eyes in question, and they asked those that they called gods, "Why?" And they replied, "It is not we that do this to you, but you that do it to yourselves. We have no more control over your fate than you do." They were blessed, or cursed, with a hunger for knowledge of the universe. And as they learned more and more, they believed themselves to be superior beings; the lords and masters of all that is. But in their advances of rational thought and scientific reasoning, they forgot what they were. Not cold, unfeeling, rational beings, but creatures of emotion and feeling. Or rather, a bit of both. Caught somewhere in the middle of rationality and emotion. Both must be taken into account when considering the paradox that is humanity. Tip too far in one direction, and disaster results. Leaving the watery, emotional, Piscean age. Entering the rational, airy, Aquarian age. I don't like either. I don't like how each of the ages seem to evidence the worst qualities of the particular element. We need to unite the different qualities of each element if we are to ever create a perfect world. Find a happy medium instead of leaning too far to one side. I just don't see how it can happen.
And so, by their own folly, they were destroyed, and never troubled this world again...
