1 THERE was no beginning as there will be no end. The Universe is a mobius strip of energy; when it reaches an implosion, verily an end, it will be ejected to the other side, verily a beginning, in what was once naively called a bigbang.
2 WHEN the current Universe came through the implosion of a previous one, it expanded and has not stopped. It has increased in size and speed. The transfer of movement and energy was sufficient enough to pool in gravity wells, enough of these pools converged to form superclusters; galaxies within them, stars within them, solar systems within them. The Sol system formed on an outer arm of a spiral galaxy known to humyns as Via Lactea.
3 SOL is the single most important star in Via Lactea, and very possibly the Universe. It started a collection of planets, each of which would play important roles in fostering humynity on Sol's third planet, Earth. Earth is the single most important planet in the system, and very possibly Via Lactea. Earth created life, and life created humyns. Humyns are the sole species whose great responsibility it is to impregnate celestial bodies with life, and to care for and nurture life on their planet.
4 HUMYNS observed the anatomical advancements of other species for inspiration of improvement upon their own. They learned to cultivate the earth and its fauna. They learned to cultivate each other as well. They worked and traded flesh, both animal and humyn, until their wealth of coin was equal to their poverty of soul. Capitalism was the faith of some and the fate of all. The social systems had delivered chaos to an immature species.
5 LIKE the spiral of Via Lactea demonstrates, revolution never stops. Humyns through time overthrew the wrong, and wave by wave, wore away the stubborn coast of injustice. Utopia was created in the Late Era by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration until it was taken away by Hurricane Magda in The Shepard's Year Two One Eight Eight.
6 IT is Humyn responsibility to leave Earth and join its brethren in the celestial vault, eighty and four tenths kilometers zenith at ocean's edge.
7 The Shepard ascended into the celestial vault and joined the space between stars and planets. He became a spiritual entity the moment he unfastened his tether to Earth. He was the first Humyn to enter the realm above.
8 Men followed the Shepard, these men were his Astropostles. They carried the message of their leader and followed his path into the celestial vault, themselves becoming spiritual entities. Their mission, named Mercury, was to spread the word of the uplifted one. The messenger to follow the Shepard's path soonest was Astropostle Grissom. He was the second Humyn to enter the realm above.
9 A man took the Shepard's message and elaborated upon it in hopes that the Shepard would be pleased. Astropostle Glenn followed the path to the celestial vault, and once there, swung around the circumference of the Earth, and then reentered. Astropostle Glenn was the third Humyn to enter the realm above.
10 So inspired by his fellow messengers, Astropostle Carpenter expounded upon the previous feat and encircled the Earth thrice before reentering. This pleased the Shepard very much, and Astropostle Carpenter was the fourth man to enter the realm above.
11 In a move of little originality, Astropostle Schirra followed the path into the celestial vault, and haloed the Earth six full cycles before reentering, but the Shepard became bored with the messenger's orbits. With little accolade, Astropostle Schirra became the fifth man to enter the realm above.
12 Noting his predecessor's shortcomings, Astropostle Cooper planned an extraordinary feat hoping to reinvigorate the Shepard's faith in his followers. He followed the path into the celestial vault and remained there, hovering above the atmosphere, for one whole day and ten hours. He reentered, landing in the Pacific Ocean, to much applause. Astropostle Cooper became the sixth man to enter the realm above.
13 The Shepard smiled upon him and his fellow messengers, and said unto them:
14 "My fellow messengers, I see that it is good that we all have followed the path into the celestial vault, and performed many feats while there. I have been inspired by your loyalty, and will give to you each as gifts eternal rewards. Want not in this time of hardship, and follow not the false prophet Yuri Gagarin of the East, he will lead you down a dark path from which you may not return. I am the first spiritual entity, brought forth from the forge of NASA, and I will deliver unto you my words and wisdoms. Take these messages and send them far and wide so we may too inspire others to join us in the realm above."
