"Naked in cold darkness, the First Millennium Man saw the sun rise
    upon his world. So too, Man rose in awe of its mystery. He stood with  
    raised head and open arms, to embrace its light. And he walked upon his
    world to explore its magic. The Third Millennium Man discovered the
    metaphysics of the timeless stars  and expanded his realm to the edge of
    twilight. Now, in the Sixth Millennium, nightfall pervades the mind of Man
    and he is, once more, left in darkness. Yet he is aware of something in
    the pitch black. Unseen, it stirs deep within his soul; something he knows,
    will never again, let him see the light of day."
