Crossing the night sea
It is the work of The Father to contend with conceptual chaos -- to enter an unknown, chaotic space and make sense of the world by identifying differentiating. To create an ordered world by giving names and values to objects, emotions, behaviors, and ideas.
In some cultures, it was believed that, at night, the sun or sun god crossed a sea of chaos. When the sun rose in the morning, it was believed that the sun had overcome and defeated chaos again for another day. The most widely known example is the Egyptian Ra traveling on his solar barge at night.
This soundtrack was composed in three parts or movements, with meditation in mind. In Golden Hour, a solar prayer is offered, and chants are made to the sun as meditation begins. The second track, titled The Solar Barge, represents the journey inward into darkness and the unknown. The Final track, titled Blue Hour, prepares the man who is meditating for ascencion and return to the world of light.
