Zeitgeist - Deus Ex Machina
Seal of Mavisha
Aemon receives this vision in the form of a dream after being in proximity to the underwater seal of Mavisha. As he falls asleep, he experiences the following:
“You break the surface of the waves, under a weary night sky. An island made of ghosts and shadows lies ahead of you, but the masses of people framed by the sea are blinded by high walls and dark paintings, and they cannot perceive the shifting tides outside.
Inside now. Rains streak glass along this hall of portraits. A face looks down at you, canvas and frame and watercolor dyes. And down the center of the face, a schism appears, like a river trying to flow two ways at once. Paint runs and flows free of its borders, leaving one face on the canvas, and another struggling, bereft of form, to find a home or else swirl away and die.”
