“The love that moves the Sun and other Stars….” is how Dante Alighieri ends his 100 canto epic, which has rekindled itself throughout history, again and again…and again. Mortality is a “cloud” for Dante, an obscure haze that prevents the truth from being fully seen. Little by little, the Divine Comedy’s events remove the cloud from his vision, preparing him for ever more direct insights into God.
“In a way, it seems like the cruelest joke in existence has been played on us. We became self-aware only to realize this story isn’t about us at all.” -Kurzgesagt
