The old stories say the universe began with a bang and a laugh from the Smiling Creator, the Joy of the Heavens, He who rolled the earth out of clay and sang to bring life to it.
The old stories are all like that. The Joyful Gods and Deities, but the world has changed. The People have put their faith in other gods and the world has turned hard and gray. Happiness has soured.
The Joyful Gods are no longer welcomed into this gray world.
There won’t be a bang and a laugh when the universe ends, but a whimper.
