Synod Of The Three

On the proceedings concerning the issue of proceeding

On the sixth day of the year 1028 PAC, the Synod of the Temple Conglomerate convened.  Numerous issues were discussed, but none begin to compare to the treatment they gave to the issue of the newly discovered Aygeemya.  The following are a brief synopsis of their decisions.  Of particular importance in this synod is Lektalis, High Prophet of Zihth, who had just assumed the role of liason from the Academy of Prophecy and was thus the newest member.  Despite this, he led much of the discussion on the issues concerning the Aygeemya, due in part to being one of only four members to be at all familiar with the Remnant records, and one of only two to have contact with one of the three new aygeemya.  Also of note were Talbos, Saint Of Shah and Speaker of The Synod of The Temple Conglomerate and Tilathan, High Priest of Tehsh and the most vocal of the Cessationists.  



Official Declarations


Space and time are Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya. They are the foundation of all creation, thus the other Aygeemya are bound in creation by Space and Time. They are preeminent above the other Aygeemya in creation, and are worthy of devotion as such. On the subject of the Aygeemya of Space, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, it must be said that while it has three simultaneous modes, these apart are not the Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya. Rather, they are all together one Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, though separately they are naught. This is how Sayya has chosen to ordain its energy.


Cold is a juxtaposition of time. It is the opposition of motion and change. To the extent that it is rest and a lack of motion, it is the Aygeemya considered in repose. It should be a lesser cousin of the Aygeemya of Time, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya. In some ways, the Aygeemya of cold is a lack of the energy of Sayya and stands as an image of the free volition of the Aygeemya and Alathaya.


The first is the embarrassment of having no real mention of them in any of our extant scrolls.

It is clear from the remnant that the 3 are more powerful Aygeemya, that could not be understood by the early Alathay and had energy that was unstable to the flowering civilization. Thus, it must be said that the lack of mention of the 3 is first a protective measure, as a way of keeping safe our budding civilization. Further, because of the mystical, hidden nature of the 3, it is proper that they would not be mentioned in the Kushi Telioth (Most Holy of Scrolls, May It Ever Guide Us) in a way that is clear. They are such that only the most detached and ascended would know those most ineffable mysteries.


The second is whether they are indeed of the same being as the Aygeemya we already know.

It must be said that the 3 have the same relation to Sayya as the other Aygeemya, though since Space and Time are the Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, it should be said that they are more fully the energy of Sayya, and thus, are more of the same being. The Aygeemya of Cold should be said to have more of Sayya since it is the embodiment of rest and free volition, but at the same time less of Sayya, since it is the lack of its sustaining energy.


The third is that if they are of the same being, are they to be worshiped as equals?

These are to be worshiped as beyond equals as has been shown above.


Should the three (or five, depending on your view of the tripartite aygeemya of space) new aygeemya have some sort of holy building or building built to them?

It must be true that our most revered temple is complete, without any needs of addition. In light of the Divine condescension of the 3, it must be said that they already fit into our temple. Thus, the space within the temple must be dedicated to the Aygeemya of Space, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, and tapestries hung adorning and declaring this space sacred. Further, we must dedicate the feast days to the Aygeemya of Time, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya. Since the Aygeemya of Time, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya has no place as such, we must reverence it in the way proper to it, which is these times outside of time. The temple shall specially consecrate these days and the temple shall be in its service for those days. The Aygeemya of Cold should have all times of rest and repose dedicated to it, such that all time in the temple that is spent in sleep or repose should be an offering to the Aygeemya. Further, one hour of every feast day should be dedicated to rest and repose.


The Creed of the Synod of the 3

Alathaya affirm:

Sayya, energy of all, father of all Aygeemya, is the preeminent One. It is beyond all thought and speech, and is to be reverenced as most ineffible. It is the blood of the Aygeemya, and gave birth to them all in the most holy schism, though Sayya is distinct from them all. None of them are Sayya, yet they all are dependent on the One. Sayya bequeathes to them all being. Sayya allows all Aygeemya freedom, so to act as they will in their distinction.


The Aygeemya of Space, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, by which all is where it is. Without it, nothing has place and all is chaos. The Aygeemya of Space, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, is the master of its own will, and does as it wishes.


The Aygeemya of Time, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, by which all motion and change comes. Without it, nothing that is, could be. The Aygeemya of Time, Aygeemya beyond Aygeemya, is the master of its own will, and does as it wishes.


The Aygeemya of Cold, by which all has rest and repose, and all have freedom of volition. Without it, none have any choice and all is restlessness. Aygeemya of Cold is the master of its own will, and does as it wishes.


The 6 Aygeemya, Zhith, Wee, Voo, Shah, Khog, Tehsh, formers of creation, extension of the energy of Sayya. The 6 formed all that is, and gave birth to the Alathaya and the Remnant. The 6 are masters of their own will, and do as they wish.


The Temple is the Arbiter of the will of Sayya, and the wills of the Aygeemya, and holds all authority over the children of the Aygeemya. All shall be in fealty to the Temple.


The eleven are the One and the twelve are the all and before them all are none.  


Three official responses were given that called for changes in the creed that resulted from this synod.  

  • The first came from The Terathi Collective and was signed as such as well as "and all other free states".  They disagreed with the inclusion of the "fealty clause" and the indication that the council alone was the arbiter of the will of Sayya.
  • The second came from the Theori of the Remnant, who took issue with the same clause as well as the switching between race inclusive and race exclusive language throughout the creed. 
  • The Barencil sent an official response calling those who had met heretics, denounced them for five pages, demanded the execution of all involved, provided a creed of their own, and demanded to have seats at the next synod.
