about

Excelling in their own fields is not tantamount to the pinnacle of true scientists’ endeavours. They must oversee all basic sciences, philosophy in particular. In antiquity, science was raised in two cradles: Arabia and the spiritual world of the Far-East. There was more to the sanctuary offered by the physical matter that made the men of science bow. Schools of thought born in these places were immersed in spirituality. Most scientists today are merely analysts, who strive to compress the world into a rigid framework within which uttering the name of God or Satan is considered discreditable. This must be because the world’s present leaders emerge from the Western civilisation, where the desire to discover the world arose much later, due to the exertion of authority of the Catholic Church. In the East, however, gathering knowledge and practicing religion coexisted. This made it possible for people to simultaneously discover and acknowledge the existence of the creative power, which the so-called modern science fails to do. The last spiritual, great scientists lived in the early 20th century, whose works were based on what Isaac Newton--mathematician, physicist, theologian, and polymath--had established in the 17th-18th century.

This one solid hour of music pays tribute to three contemporaries of paramount importance: Isaac Newton, Robert Hooke and Edmond Halley.

In that time, Newton was the president of the Royal Society, which was the world’s number one scientific centre. At the same time, Hooke, Newton’s rival and enemy, coined the term ‘cell.’ He also perfected the microscope and marked several achievements in architecture. He could not solve the problem of planetary motions--although he claimed he did.

Halley was given command of a naval ship at a young age, and soon rose to fame owing to his observations and creating the star map of southern skies. He is also known for his mathematical and astronomical calculations. He was the only true friend to the particularly ill-tempered Isaac Newton. If Halley does not disturb his seclusion, the law of gravity and differential calculus could now belong to a different name.

Newton would have preferred to be remembered mostly by his biblical predictions. He used science to explain how God manoeuvres the world instead of eliminating his existence. He predicted the apocalypse to take place in 2060.

Track Name: Isaac
Three quarters of an orphan child, an offspring of Christmas
in a world unblurred, on an Earth translucent.
With a sky too distant, first gulps elusive,
nursed by the colours of the prism, propped by higher mechanism.

Falling out of his mother, landing at his grandmother, ill-bred little creature.
Lettering did he despise, schoolmates did he agonize, impetuous by nature.

Chased into a loophole made of light by loneliness and sorrow
where horizon and expansion brings him eyes for keen perception.

He lived half his life long ago, the second half he lived much later...
Track Name: Prism
The fan unfolds from the glass of sorcery, colouring the universe garbed in hue.
Whence the magic force and the mistery? Why all the lurking in white disguise?
Great divine plan, now, where is thy key that unlocks the door guarding secret lights?
The tool I can see, its transient charm. Glass, what's your secret? Drop a clue!

Tell me, show me, illustrate! Stalking magic, I'm lying in wait.
Grant me vision to see through the glass, to bathe in light and celebrate.
Educate me, illustrate! Stalking magic, I'm lying in wait.
Onboard the ship of science, I'll bathe in light and navigate.
Track Name: Robert
Revealed I have thy secrets, ye six planets,
who roam around a star with grace.
Broken I have the silence with science.
Hang on to my words from cell to outer space.

No flatlander measures up to us.
The glory is our crown to wear.
We shall become a beacon to our own.
We are but light of our radiant selves.

"Mr. Newton... You shall be no scientist as long as I'm here."
Track Name: Nullius in Verba
I know that I know. I was born to do it. I know all there is to know to find the answers... I need time. It's only time.
I am the one to solve it... Mere words we shan't believe... Mere words we shan't beleive.
I know that I know. I shall know. I am the one to know. I am to uncipher it!
Track Name: Edmond
Sailing downwind, waves to govern,
rain to bathe in, bound to sunburn at sea.
The gallant rocking of Paramour's stern takes a turn
to the sky where the captain is seeking the key.

Canes Venatici, Robur Carolinum,
Columba Noachi, Corona Australis,
Piscis Volans, Musca Apis,
Piscis Austrinus, Ara, Thuribulum,

I tell ye, in a long generation
it shall come back for man to discern.
Merely seventy-six years to pass
but the cold stone shall return.

"Oh, my love, if only Mr. Hooke and Mr. Newton were as noble-minded as you are."
Track Name: New Tone
Great fire or peers driven by envy, what do I care?
Truth shall prevail, the Lord shall have his ways.
My hands driven by light to bequeath the world my share.
Dogmas as bridges fall apart ablaze.

Comfort and plenty, I wouldn't dare for more.
I need nothing else, least of all babbling tongues.
The new laws of the world create delight galore.
on the ground that can't absorb the poison from my soul.
Track Name: Modern History
Enlightenment - a dark shadow to descend.
upon our soul and land, sheer doom to impend.
Beheaded here we stand, our eyes and conscience spent,
2060: the year that brings along our end.
