Her piercing green eyes peered out behind piceous folds of cottony cloth, desperately trying to decipher how it was she came to be in this place that
was no place at all. In all 6 directions all she could see was pitch black nothingness, an emptiness so complete she knew not how she stood. But
standing she seemed to be.
Suddenly a light pierced the darkness, just a pin prick at first then enlarging as it slowly came toward her. Finally, she saw that it was a man but
he brought with him no light to carry, it was as if he was both man and light at once, the light emanating from his every pore. Sensing power
emanating from him simultaneously it made her feel small and weak.
Yet, in his presence you felt cared for like a trusted friend, and he made the gesture for her to sit. She felt completely comfortable suddenly, but
she knew not why. That was no matter, head bowed respectfully she still dared not look him in the eye as she waited for him to speak.
Suddenly, letters started falling like rain all around her, touching her hands, melting like snow as they rested upon her clothing. She looked up in
question, and he spoke for the first time.

Sitting up she wondered what had just happened, an experience she would never forget. Shaking so hard she could not hold a pen to write it all down
though desperately she wanted to record on paper this experience, lest she someday forget. After a few hours as the shaking subsided she began to
As the sun's rays poured through the window the next morning she awoke, wondering what had transpired the night before. She did not feel any smarter.
It must have been a strange dream she thought. One she would not forget nonetheless. She got up from her bed to make tea then cleaned up and said her
prayers just like any other day.
Then she sat to read the holy book for a few minutes as she normally did, but this time, this time... she saw more in those words than ever she had
before. Level upon level of meaning, one on top of the other within those same words she realized, what she held in her hand was not what anyone had
ever imagined it to be, because before her... written in those ancient words, were the Keys to the secrets of all the universe...
