This is the original version of the cosmic eagle and cobra that I started repeating. It is all-knowing and ancient. That form is a portal into a thoughtful space. It means “Once upon a time...” and my mind fills in a story.
In the abyss, the dark, the space before separation there was chaos and it was all woven and all one. It contained the potential for everything. This was a place of “primordial ooze” which, of course, is green like the slime of algae.
The distant and unknown spaces - deepest jungle where no light reaches the soil - roiling fecundity, or waters so deep and dark that light is again strangled out and creatures have been left to create their own foggy appearance - ghosts of the deep waters - a place haunted by glowing liquid creatures.
Ouroborous. Cycle of destruction and rebirth - constant. That is the cycle of the eternal universe.
