Homo Sapiens - The upright, naked ape.
Most highly evolved sentient organism on terra firma.
Prone to infantile behavior even in old age
(though it's rarely recognized or acknowledged).
Invariably weighed down by personal phantoms from the past
and the often oppressive forces of social conformity.
Otherwise; embryonic Demiurge that secretly yearns for Actualization:
An accomplished state that might harmonize the star-studded heavens with the living, breathing body of humanity's cosmic isolation.
No childhood without rebirth.
There aren't any skies in the absence of Earth.
They say Jesus descended to hell prior to his resurrection
Because what's forward movement without a sense of direction?
