In the beginning, Earth was dominated by the “Rulers”, A primordial race born of nature’s force itself. Having the privilege to take after nature, they have the ability to understand and manipulate it’s force for Earth’s good.
Aeons passed and another race was born of nature. They are called “Humans”. Being the second born, the humans lack the wisdom to understand nature and it’s traits. Due to their primitive nature, they are no different than animals. Their action are based on animalistic instincts and live without any greater sense of purpose. The Rulers grew pity for their brothers’ inadequacy. They guide the humans away from their doom. In return, the humans must share the burdens of The Rulers, and follow after them. With these newfound wisdom, the humans give their life to the Rulers. They worship The Rulers and they built monuments and temples to show appreciation to their brothers while at the same time they are fighting amongst themselves to fulfill their primal needs. For millennia, The Rulers and the humans walk hand-in-hand through chaos.
Over the years they worked together, The Rulers realized they lack something that the humans possessed. The humans, while lacking wisdom, they are blessed with “free-will”. The destiny-chained Rulers are intrigued by this trait. They learned more about the humans and grew envious of the inferior race that they once took pity on. As a result, the once-benevolent race started to become more like the humans. Jealousy, lust, wrath, pride, greed, are a few example of human traits to infect The Rulers. The Rulers started to separate among themselves to become individuals and no longer a collective being, each worked for the advancement of their own agenda.
The greatest among nature’s traits is that of balance. While The Rulers are becoming more like humans, the humans are becoming more like The Rulers. The humans ability to innovate gave birth to their weapon called “Science”. Thinking that they are close to divinity, the humans foolishly challenged The Rulers with their science when it’s still in infancy. The Rulers figured that what the humans lack in power, they gain in numbers. The first divine war in Babel was dominated by The Rulers and to prevent the humans to ever rise up to power, they break them into smaller groups and divide them among the face of the Earth.
For a long time, The Rulers governed over humans and their ways of living. They recruited humans to join their cause promising divinity to the humans who follow their will. These humans are called the zealots. Fearing the potential of science and The Rulers race to become irrelevant, They used the zealots to keep a lid on science. They succeeded for a time being until another invention called “The Web” was born of human mind. This invention once again united the humans together and science advanced rapidly. With the power of science and the web, the humans once again have the chance for freedom and the tension between the Rulers and the humans are growing ever stronger.
