The Mythos of The Balance
Ideal Origin. Life and death, light and shadow, creation and chaos, do you ever wonder what decides the fate of everything? Legend speaks of two lost beings who awakened from nothing, with no understanding or purpose to their creation. There was only emptiness, and nothing, no noise, no life, nobody but the brothers. With a fear of drifting in eternity, the brothers decided upon themselves to focus, believing that they were meant for something after all. With nothing to loose, and only to gain, the brothers focused on a strange energy they could feel within each other, until a large sound, and a bright light blinded the two. Shortly after, they were able to see again, and to their awe, saw a creation. The brothers were puzzled and confused, but not scared at what they created. This was the day the first sun was born, and time finally existed. The brothers decided to continue their efforts, creating stars, planets, life, and even death. In an attempt to act as one, the brothers focused their energy on a body containing the mind and energy of both brothers, a machine that would become, the balance. The light would provide heat, energy, building, and life itself. The dark would provide cold, shade, chaos, and with his wisdom, decide the end of anything he and his brother created. And since then, they continue building upon, and continue with their idea that there can be no end without a beginning. But that is just a campfire story.
I would love it if TTV could use this idea for something, I worked and planned on this for some time, and I hope they enjoy the idea. Let me know what you think of it. The photo is just the idea of what it would some what look like.
The original idea was that throughout Bionicle, darkness was always placed for the villains, but I thought that darkness doesn’t HAVE to be considered ‘bad.’ I came up with this idea as an example that there is a balance, there is a reason for everything, and there’s an equal and opposite. Anyone can use the idea for their own stories if they want.
P.S. Let me know if you catch the G1 Bionicle reference in the art.
