Light before light, mass before mass
Existent in emptiness before the beginning
Dormant energy poised for exposure,
Ready for release by accident 
In a thousand emanations
But at least one planned revelation
Kept for the special occasion.
Absolute diversity, the essence of unity,
Cosmically available, yet down to earth 
Incomparable in breadth and depth,
Known, but still incomprehensible;
Ultimate complexity reduced to simplicity
Carrying a name that remains unspoken;
Discarded, though we cannot be without.
