    Niena was abandoned on the doorstep of the Svastra temple before her first birthday.

All Svastra prayed for the kings and queens, the peasants, those who gave them supplies or gold. In Jerilor, there was a state of tradition and age-old practice, unlike the new, heathen nations that praised the betrayers of the gods.

The foolishness of this new, impure religion made Niena sick to her stomach; if only the corrupted Heathens knew about banishment. Although, all things banished could come back. Elegant Niena felt content to be within the temple walls, for she was not an orphan at all when within the Temple; her numerous sisters had protected her, taught her, enlightened her. Shown her the ancient ways of prayer, belief, and power. They wore earrings and necklaces of heavy gold and glittering jewels, sparkling prophets isolated in a land of heresy. She was no lowly peasant; no pathetic…

    The Importance of Absurdity Our capacity to differentiate right from wrong in this world makes up a large part of who we are. Whenever we criticize the aspects of our lives, we assert ourselves, our ideas, and everything we have experienced and endured. Our ability to hold the world up to our standards lends us a feeling of power and control over our lives, giving us our pride and credibility as individuals, but when it is taken away from us, it renders us feeble, fearful, and helpless to…

    In the late Spring and Fall of 1967, America got to be mindful of a developing development of youngsters, based mostly out of California, called the "hallucinogenic development."
