The Music of the Spheres
by Phineas Alcarin
The Music of the Spheres is a very slow melody which
has been an inspiration for many composers and
bards. However the entirely unique sound could never
be copied due to the lack of an instrument that could
imitate it. But what exactly is this music and what are
The world has been proven to be flat, like a buckler.
The water of our oceans is spilled in immensely huge
waterfalls over the borders and only by the power of
the Gods is there guaranteed sufficient water for us
to live. Sometimes, in places where the earth is very
thin, small holes may appear on the surface and people
are given the opportunity to look through the holes
and watch the universe below our world. Then a fine,
glowing powder, a weak gleam floating slowly through
the ebony darkness, can be observed as it plays upon
our atmosphere, or is caught up in the aura of passing
meteors, adding to their weak glow and giving them a
shiny, trailing tail like that of a falling star.
At times when the powder, or stardust, attaches to
the outer corona of our atmosphere, or the one of
other orbs, a sound, a melody can be heard that
sounds far away. High tones are dominating but are
sometimes compromised by dark, deep tones. Most
of the people who have heard it found it relaxing and
found themselves shifted into some sort of trance. It
is as yet unknown what exactly causes the sound and
in what way it is related to the powder. Moreover,
nobody seems to have an explanation for the
transcendental effect the music has on the listeners’
minds and it is likely to stay that way.
