Pillars are the physical and mental structures that support an individual’s identity. Buildings. Objects. Concepts. Matter. These structures are used to prop-up the individual’s definition of truth, whatever that may be. In the same way that steel beams hold towers together, mental Pillars hold an individual’s identity together.
The Pillars give us a starting-place; essentially, it places a person into a specific location on a map, at a specific point-in-time. From there, the person’s consciousness may fork and travel as-necessary down alternate paths, as described by The Fold.
Importantly, Pillars are considered to be immutable; unchanging. Once set, they are very difficult to unset. It is for this reason that it is imperative we begin to change immediately. The process is slow. We must teach children, the mentally-ill, the incarcerated, the violent, and more immediately. This theory will help them reach enlightenment. It will not happen overnight.
We are but sparks born into a random point in-time, traveling down the same paths as our predecessors.
