  10. Harken unto my expressed summons as given.
  11. Remain.

  28. And bodies are lost.
  29. A river of blood flows from the surface.
  30. It is written in the dark.
  31. The ten eyes do not see it.
  32. He creates alone;
  33. Weary of what may come.
  34. Why does the Maker not know our choice?
  35. Because he chooses not to know it.
  36. He sees the branches of all choices,
  37. He knows the paths of all possibilities.
  38. But the pruning he has placed in the hands of man.
  39. This is the strength and downfall of man.
  40. This is how man will be measured.
  41. But it is many who will come
  42. To revel in his joy;
  43. To hide themselves from the eyes
  44. Who do not see the path.
  45. One who finds, will need.
  46. One who needs, will find.
  47. And one who meets the needs of another
  48. Will find his own needs met.
  49. They will subdue the weak and it will be their undoing.

  54. Circles are the paths that lead to walls;
  55. And return to the beginning.

  69. First there is a one;
  70. Followed by a nine.
  71. Four leads a ten.
  72. Numbers;
  73. Cut into stone.
  74. If understood they could save,
  75. But their value is lost on the blind.
  76. Look at the time they spend trying to see numbers.
  77. There is no value in such numbers.
  78. For only after are they understood.
  79. Why do these numbers haunt us so?
  80. They laugh upon us
  81. And reveal our weakness;
  82. In the face of the great time.
  83. Foolish men. Do you think that you are the only writers?
  84. Who is the new writer? The rules are written within him.

  86. But are you the one to start it?
  87. You did nothing but follow.
  88. The grower is the one who leads.
  89. You toil and strive to write Ages and move stones.
  90. The path of the stone is toil for the gathered.
  91. Ink will be shared,
  92. And Ink will be lost.
  93. The Maker knows all the branches of the tree.
  94. The Maker can send the knife or the water.
  95. And few will be greater than the grower.
  96. For the grower will know pain.
  97. And the wounds will make the least the greatest.
  98. But do not be deceived.
  99. Few ears in the low places will know the grower.
  100. But many ears will hear those who claim to be the grower.
  101. Only the ears of the new ones will hear the true grower.
  102. Do not be deceived.
