Philosophy: The Highest Form of Devotion is Destruction

Philosophy: The Highest Form of Devotion is Destruction

“The most highest form of use and appreciation of existence and life is the act of destruction of it.” - Cyclone, Harmonic Waves “For destruction is the highest form of devotion…” - Ra, Emerald Haze Above are two selected quotes from the series regarding the philosophy that destroying something is the highest form of devotion towards something.

Absolute Revisionism: Explaining The Diamondae Machine

Absolute Revisionism: Explaining The Diamondae Machine

The Diamondae Machine, an orange pincer floating in the void of space, as seen in Threads that Bind the Tempest, has a cryptic function that is totally antithetical to existence, to the unfettered continuity of it. It is explained in a round-about way, but still, it doesn’t seem to make any sense. And making sense of it would lead to madness.

HTSW Point of View Analysis

HTSW Point of View Analysis
