Who Are We??
by Sister Raven
Many times over the years, I have pondered the same question
of old. Who are we? Where did our race begin? With what little
is known, how can we come to a concrete conclusion? There is
no documentable evidence that can be dated far enough into history
to provide any real proof to our origins.
Of course, there are many who would argue with my theories.
They would say, "Heretic! How canst thee reject the elders
findings?" or better yet, "Pariah! Be gone from our
midst." Of these things, I can only interject, show me
the evidence of your profound origins theory.
How can these elders provide such information, when most are
only a few centuries into their lives? They cannot. To impress
upon the young that such ideas can be the only 'real' conclusion
is pure ignorance.
Of course, gentle reader; you would assume that now I am professing
ignorance, in the way of opposing the tales of such ancient
age. But, how can we assume that they are of such age? Of course,
radio carbon dating is not unknown to those of our kind. Many
of the great leaps in science have been perpetrated by our own.
Consider the vast research into human gene therapy and the more
recent manufacture of blood that can be given to any human,
without allergic reaction or rejection by the host.
But, I regress.
In any event, how can we acknowledge any text brought forth
that confirms our beginnings? If we are to take a look at the
ever popular role playing games of our time, and yes, I am aware
that they are just that, games, we might find ourselves with
a bit of truth. For, however they are portrayed, games, movies,
and other imaginings of publishers and Hollywood writers, may
have some sort of realistic influence.
Is that to say that one of our kind stood over the shoulder
of these writers? Perhaps. Mayhap to throw humans off the 'scent'
of us. Many have employed this sort of tactic, to romanticize
something that cannot be understood by the human public.
Still, were we brought about by a curse from God himself? Did
someone, someplace, commit such a crime that the earth actually
wept tears of blood, discovered and drunk by some hapless human?
Or, did Cain come across some new breed of human while wandering
in the wilderness of Nod?
There are times, when I sit back and wonder, did everyone forget
that in the Garden of Eden, God had made two previous images
of himself? Adam was not the first. Think back, on God's thirst
for blood and sacrifices. Would it be too large of a leap to
link these two original humans to having that thirst as well?
Very few have in their possession the Aramaic texts, which touch
on the topic. In these texts, God had created two forms of life,
which exactly imaged himself. But, being dissatisfied, he threw
these two out of the Garden, to wander in the wilderness for
eternity, since he could not endeavor to destroy something so
close to his own image.
Do these beings still walk the Earth? In all obvious aspects,
they must. For at that time, all of the Earth, outside of Eden,
was considered Nod. If these were made in his own, exact image,
then, how could we assume death? At no time, did the texts speak
of God destroying, or even being unhappy with his creation,
just dissatisfied. We can imagine that with Lucifer have growing
so strong not long before, that perhaps God did not want something
of that strain to happen again and sent the beings to wander.
With my mention earlier of ancient texts and how they could
be misleading, let me add one thing. These texts, which I mention,
were found alongside the famous 'Dead Sea' scrolls. Having been
sealed away for centuries, it is almost impossible to believe
that some unscrupulous individual looking for some sort of gain
could have planted them.
