Every day, the sun rises in the east so it can set in the west. Yet, the world is driven by a thousand, loose cogs grinding against each other. Past the veil, it is no different. A clip-on tie salesman knocks on your door with an impossibly wide smile; A group of teens radicalized to give their minds and bodies in the promise to become more than human; Her Majesty's finest serving to protect god and country against forces incomprehensible.

No, this story was never meant to be told from one perspective. In this great chess match, too many hands are at play to not seize the day. How the cogs interact is simply driven by their ego. But every day presents a new challenge, a fresher start.
