Ommadon, the Red Wizard, on the Myth of Progress

Quote:I have weapons you would not dare use.

Fear rules men.

By summoning all the dark powers

I will infest the spirit of man

so that he uses his science
and logic to destroy himself.

Work havoc and raze. Turn
brother against brother.

Greed and avarice shall prevail.

And those who not hear my
words shall pay the price.

I'll teach man to use his machines.

I'll show him what distorted
science can give birth to.

I'll teach him to fly like a fairy.

And I'll give the ultimate answer
to all his science can ask.

And the world will be
free for my magic again...

...While your powers die, mine will flourish.

Man will never inherent my domain.

For I am making man mine.

He will understand and
come to desire my magic.

It is inevitable.

You shall see.

This dark determination

I swear.
By this red crown.

The source of all my dark power.

So be it!

Now and forever!

Farewell.

Can you not feel the world
turning in my direction already?

“You call a tree a tree, he said, and you think nothing more of the word. But it was not a 'tree' until someone gave it that name. You call a star a star, and say it is just a ball of matter moving on a mathematical course. But that is merely how you see it. By so naming things and describing them you are only inventing your own terms about them. And just as speech is invention about objects and ideas, so myth is invention about truth.

We have come from God and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming a 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall.


Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbor, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of evil.”
