But the Reapers of the Absence Brethren wish to dim your eyes to the presence of this flame. They wish to blind the Ragged Magi to the very thing that gives them purpose and ensures their eventual victory. Sometimes, in your dreams, you will come face to face with a Reaper; an Archon of seemingly-unimaginable power. But remember this - the Reaper's dominance is based upon a lie. The lie of the closed-system. The lie of vampiric consciousness, a system so closed that it must sustain itself on the life-force of others. There are no closed systems. Only hearts and minds bound so tightly that they appear to be closed. Like the hearts of the Reapers themselves. Do not be fooled by appearances and the awful thunder of Outermost Power. Innermost Power is that which sustains all realms and all entities, even the darkest of entities. This is the truth that the Absence Brethren are trying to conceal from your eyes. This Innermost Power is the flame - the Holy Star of the Magi. And this flame is not simply within you, it IS YOU. It is the dynamic totality of everything you are.
And not even the darkest nightmare can extinguish it.
