“Believe nothing. Regret Nothing.
See everything. Fear None”.
It was quite the notion to remember these words: “Believe nothing. Regret Nothing. See everything. Fear None”.
For it was a law formed by one of the most ancient of societies; a society engineered during the darkest of times painted and orchestrated by blood and discord. How long ago, that seemed.
The Excelian society, long forgotten and if remembered; it contrary is effortlessly discredited or regularly discarded as a fabrication of misinformation and lies. For that ultimate reason alone, humans need not fear their power.
No matter, the absolute goal for their hidden existence. It was the obscurest of times that drove them from the ravages of war; coddled by greed and pride, and into the arms of a world that encouraged peace and prosperity.
This tenure: Excelian. Was often, used as a reminder, rather than a definition. It was a stint contrived from two words by the humans, one of ‘excel’ and ‘alien’.
Not because of they were aliens but rather because of their prospect and nature of alienation. This majestic term gave them the freedom and power to compose their own path. One, many chose to ignore for centuries. As ill notions befell them made by the discriminating humans, they would resolutely become feared.
Their dark past may have occurred centuries ago, but they remembered its history for it was a constant reminder of their current existence; their purpose within the illusion of time and space and who they were and what they were born to be.
