Magi - Labyrinth of Magic Special : David’s prophecy

David’s prophecy

+ posted by aegon-rokudo as translation on Apr 19, 2014 10:38 | Go to Magi - Labyrinth of Magic

text above: magi special arc~~ david’s prophetic writing\\
TLN: is Aladdin using the circle on his like a projector or something to show them the images?
Text: aladdin’s “solomon’s wisdom” is a system that allows him to take a peek in the records stored inside the rukh. Therefore aladdin and the others are not able to read the things that are not inside the “great flow”. However there exist many truths in the other world that aladdin is unable to show to the people at the summit. And here we will disclose some of those truths.\\
my son is born. I never desired to leave a son behind in the last 800 years, but in this moment I think that to have a son is a necessity, and I cannot oppose to such a fact. Everything is part of destiny. Destiny. The path of this world that is stretching in front of my eyes is nothing more than an accumulation of different phenomena. The birth of this child is nothing more that one of those phenomena.

it is not like I can see the future. No matter how the magic techniques will become more sophisticated, a magic capable of predicting the future will never appear. But there is no need for such a thing. If someone devotes himself to observing the paths in this world, and he is able to understand the rules and the interactions of such paths, he is naturally able to see any kind of phenomena that belong to the future. The only difference is that I am able understand things that are difficult to notice to the others.

This is something that I am the only one who noticed. Well, maybe among the other species capable of intellect in this world there is someone who noticed. The people who noticed… the “singularity*” born in this world. But they, just as the ones who didn’t notice, have disappeared from this world without having any influence on it, differently from me. There is a meaning in what I have noticed. It is something that I as a magician, someone who was chosen by god to use the divine power of magic, and as a person who stands on god’s side could notice. This is not a blessing. It is only desperate loneliness. Are you really able to understand my loneliness? The loneliness of someone who reached a different nature than anyone else in the world?

TLN: the kanji here are the same as the one used when refering to sinbad as "first class singularity"

At the beginning I cursed god for this. Why was I the only one who was allowed to see the limits of this world? In that moment how would god save my heart that was filled with despair about everything in this world? The heart. What in the world is the heart? The heart is a product of ignorance. The people who don’t understand the tracks of fate can only choose that road and they are excited when they bump and stumble against the turning points of such road. Consequently I don’t feel those ripples of emotions anymore.

… however, at the same time I have noticed it. All the phenomena of this world are natural, then my existence itself is also natural. Even the singularities are something natural in this world. Furthermore I have understood it. There is a mission. I exist in order to fulfil a mission completely.\\
It is not just me. all the things that exist, all the phenomena are entrusted with a mission. Even god is like that. What is god’s mission? Creation. The world creation itself is the mission of god. His mission is to govern over all the phenomena that creates the world and make it work. And I, the one standing on the god’s side, have the same mission after all. Right now there is only a single path that I can choose.

Since the beginning I earnestly fought. Against what did I fight? My opponents weren’t the other species, or the influence of the few magicians who didn’t follow the orthodoxy’s ways. It was my own lifespan. Theoretically, the magicians have a hidden possibility to live infinitely, but practically their life is limited, and the time they have is really small. I used all of my powers to stretch my lifespan in order to realize my mission. There were also people who laugh at me calling me a coward, but for someone like me who realized which was his mission, to control the other species and obtaining the magician country was not enough.

I was striving for the accomplishment of my mission. Even the creation of the “gunud” to control the other species, the power I have obtained in the orthodoxy and the creation of the worthless “plan” were nothing more than things to accomplish my mission.

To think that I would have a son. This must also be necessary for the sake of creating the new world, after all. Sooner or later he will stand against me, and probably I will be defeated by him. There is nothing to fear. Everything is part of destiny. And before long he will follow my path and make the world advance to the next stage.

My son is not a singularity. But he is someone who succeeded my blood, if he is a being who was chosen by destiny for something different from me, he should be able to understand my words. He should be able to understand them even if he does not notice. And then after a long tome we will finally able to reach the true singularity that will be in the new born world at the end of the path created by destiny. That is the true utopia. That is the true beautiful world. At the time I will be equal to god and I will accomplish the mission that exceeds god himself.
side: that is the book of prophecies that no one ever lied his eyes upon. Wait until the day the mystery will be unveiled...!\\
