They know that every World is overshadowed by a Being of Planetary proportions, whose impeccable intelligence and incredible power far surpass mortals. Called Great Makers, these majestic Beings are the initiators of Life and its Keepers. They do not occupy thrones of grandeur, dictating with a rod of iron the daily activities of ordinary people, instead, they are the mindful ones, carefully influencing creatures like Man on towards his highest potential.
