A brief look into the afterlife
A large body of water stretches across an infinite landscape. The water represents all the tribesmen who belonged to the family of the Water Element and crossed the line between the Light and the Shadow at one point or another, either trying to bond with it or trying to defend it. Once you died, you were absorbed into the World.

Jobiah was now a part of this body of water; an ocean of souls. He now felt in harmony, as he became one with the others; a building block in the construction of life, another brick in the wall. There was no hate or anger, no fear or suffering.

Above him, Air swept across the surface of the water, breathing heavily with the souls of those who sided with Air at their time of crossing the line. The absence of the Sun shrouded the Earth in darkness.

Lingering overhead, he felt the presence of his parents. He felt them in the clouds as the atmospheric heat lifted him into the air as a piece of him evaporated.

Part of his soul became a traveler as he was introduced into the cloud that contained fragments of the souls of his parents, among others. His memories became clear of their history and their tragic death, though it did not anger him now. He realized it was only a small necessary chapter in the book of consciousness that was the Universe.

He joined them once again as the cloud absorbed moisture, a gentle breeze sent the cloud across the ocean and towards the land, where he spotted a gleaming light, surrounded by chanting and steam.

Daddy's flown across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
A snapshot in the family album
Daddy, what else did you leave for me?
Daddy, what d'ya leave behind for me?
All in all, it was just a brick in the wall
All in all, it was all just bricks in the wall
