All over the world awakenings are happening. Each day an ordinary person is waking up with new extraordinary talents. And those who already had these talents are finding themselves much much stronger. One day the world will know it's history and this time shall be known as the shift. The brief period of time where humanity succumbed to vanity, pride, lust, envy, anger, sloth and greed to become their own gods. The loss of life was monumental. The true powers of the universe stood by and let it happen. In most situations the problem will eventually weed itself out and this time was no different than the many, many times before.
But each time humanity returns more refined. They adapt to change faster. They understand the theories in less time. And they build their monuments to themselves higher and higher. This wasn't the first time they declared themselves gods. However it might be the last time.
In the preparation for the shift a select few have been chosen. Of course in every story such as this, there are those who have actually been given divinity. They were chosen not because of what they were but because of who they could become. Potential is not a dirty word, it is a compliment. The bottom line is, when the universe calls on one to become bigger. The last thing one can do is deny the request.
The world must begin again and it has been determined that when the time comes only those born of the 9 matched pairs will remain. All else shall perish, by decree of the seven deadly sins. They will fall for an idea or person, for power and glory. Only the children of the 9 will survive and only they will seed the future to humanity. Life must go on . .
