Epigraph: "Till you have truly mourned beside the grave,
You cannot take your place among the brave.
Love drives the wandering pilgrim on his quest;
And where by day or night will he find rest?" - Farid ud-Din Attar, The Conference of the Birds
"What matters to Earth's inhabitants is that they should know of their vital connections with the sky." - Isha Schwaller de Lubicz, Her-Bak
