There was a time, it is told, when all of humanity worked together, side by side in the hot sun. There was a time when we strove together with one purpose: A tower, sleek and gleaming, soaring upwards into the heavens. A shining spire, reaching out with one unified voice, to touch the fingertip of the one we called Father. Mankind’s potential made concrete. But it was not to be. The creator, jealous and afraid, struck a terrible blow; not at our edifice, but at our abilities. Upon our tongues was laid the curse of confusion. Where once we stood united, now only separate séparé unterschiedlich separado separado separato afzonderlijk, vreemdelingen sconosciuti extranjeros desconhecido fremden étrangers strangers. And the deity laughed at our angst, and scattered us to the ends of the earth where today we dwell, eyeing our glossolalic neighbours with open hostility, begging to be granted the peace we once knew.

See, child, the bones of the tower, withered by the years and half-swallowed by the sea? There was a time when we lived in harmony, though few now remember how we were sabotaged, forsaken, torn asunder by a petty god.
