Axis of Advance
A hamlet lord had taken me in
He was an elder lacking kin
His wing was mentorous and protective
The celestial erudition he was about to share
As a boy i'd learned much on my own
Recognizing pre-war signs and dialects
But Lord Elmreckt was a master intellectual
Capable of feats unproven by science

And this alleged continuum of space and time?
It is not at all like what is said in thr old world's books
"Quiet" he said, "We are travelling at a humungous speed
Down an unchartable quarter of the astral sleet"
It was so intense that I felt death grip me
Toy with me, follow me and then let me go

Gigantic triangular structures... bizarre glyphs... and a...
An opening for life of the universal nucleus
