“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Sanctus will emulate all atomic certainty New disclosure of truth: Alethia Relinquishing the primordial male ego To occupy the sacred terminus of forever Sanctus is sure that the lantern fly will coalesce with space flight Implausible: Contemporary man cannot fathom Regressus ad infinitum: Anavasta Sanctus is one breath: Pneuma A terra incognita to codify the nano profile of our ashen bones Into one singular portent Sanctus shall declare perennial divinity Or whatever you could call it As all is ritually convened Through Eternal rest: Requiem aeternam
