Blyronism is an ancient religious practice popular among the beings of the late Ottzello Galaxy and more recent Ottzello Sector, and is notably followed by the Unified Nation of Ottzello. It focuses on the worship of the Vyro'Narza as the watchers of time, as well as the Vyro'Ralza as the punishment for those who act to the detriment of space-time continuum. It shares Vyro'Narza group mind phiolosophy and the Supreme Gods, and teaches the importance of the flow of Time (which is capitalised within Blyronism).
Blyronism focuses largely on a set of beliefs relating to the stability and flow of the space-time continuum. Though they believe in pre-defined fate and inevitability, as Time is taught as a river with many endings and thousands of possible outcomes, followers still feel in control of their own lives, even if the fate for their lives may be one of many.
As it predates the discovery of the Vyro'Narza in the universe, many older tomes referred to the Vyro'Narza more as reverent deities which closer resemble gods, though more modern Blyronism is much less extreme. In the past, Blyronists would often kill and die for their beliefs, which were given utmost important in society. Upon the discovery of the Vyro'Narza, it moderated to a much more casual philosophy than a religion, and became only important in ceremonies and in reverance of the Vyro'Narza and Vyro'Ralza.
History[edit | edit source]
Origins[edit | edit source]
The true origins of Blyronism are a mystery, though it is believed to have existed for thousands of years. Blyronism is believed to be an interpretation of writings from the remains of Taldar artifacts scattered throughout Ottzello. There is no specific date for the origins of Blyronism as a set of beliefs, but Blyronism as an organised religion is believed to have begun around the time of the formation of the Blyro'Tralzica.
Blyro Cults[edit | edit source]
The different cults of Blyronism, the Blyro'Tralzica and the Blyro'Tralzorca, are formed around ideals of a stability of Time and to achieve the Perfect Fate. The formation of the Blyro Cults is largely recognised as the timeframe in which the religion's popularity increased significantly and became much more important. The Blyro'Tralzica believed that the Perfect Fate would be achieved by maintaining complete galactic peace and suppressing anyone who sought to destroy it, while the Blyro'Tralzorca believed it impossible to achieve in this timeline and this universe, and instead sought to destroy everything so that things could be reset in the next universe.
After the Great Blyro War, both groups mostly disappeared. It was later viewed critically that both groups had interpreted the Taldar's vision wrong and were primitive cults which would only cause detriment to reaching the Perfect Fate.
Modernisation[edit | edit source]
Blyronism continued to exist, mostly among the Ioketa. Among acceptance into the Unified Nation of Ottzello, and the discovery of the Vyro'Narza, Blyronism was heavily moderated to reduce many references to destruction as a response to "damaging" the space-time continuum, and the Perfect Fate was downplayed heavily and viewed as outdated.
Mythology[edit | edit source]
Creation[edit | edit source]
Blyronist mythology originally tells of the Taldar as the "starters of Time". As it is believed they were at the very beginning of Time, the Taldar were revered as the creators of everything. It was also well-known that the Taldar had created the Ottzello Galaxy, and for a long time, believed that they also created other galaxies.
Later, it was modified; although the Taldar had been at the start of the space-time continuum and created Ottzelloan worlds, along with other galaxies in many other universes, it was not believed that they were the sole creators. Instead, Chaos was acknowledged to be as important as Time. The belief is generally that the omniverse as is known as created by several different godlike species which reside in higher dimensions than the third dimension. The Taldar are believed as the creators of the temporal aspect.
War of Gods[edit | edit source]
Blyronism has frequently referred to the wars between the Taldar and the Traffphyds, with occasional mentions of the Verezaph and Xhodocto throughout. This later incorporated the Xol'Etra and granted more focus on the war between the godlike races. These conflicts are adhered to as part of a cycle of destruction, where something must be destroyed so something new must be created. While all gods are seen as fundamental to the omniverse, Blyronism refers to the Taldar and allies against the Xhodocto as heroes attempting to free the omniverse from the ancient cycles.
Perfect Fate[edit | edit source]
A mythological event, the Perfect Fate is referred to as a hypothetical state. As Time is believed to contain multiple different outcomes, and believed to lead multiple paths, everyone is described as having one or more fates they may achieve in this timeline. The Perfect Fate is described as a timeline in which everything goes perfectly for everyone, with universe peace and tolerance achieved. Core Blyronist fundamentalists debated this Perfect Fate and what it involved; as it was believed to be objectively morally good, there were endless debates over such.
The Perfect Fate was later adapted to be given much less significance. As "perfection" is subjective and not objective, very few Blyronists interpret it literally, and more interpret it merely as an ideal goal to aim to achieve instead of squandering their life.
Practices[edit | edit source]
Blyornist practices are highly varied. There are known festivals and holidays of Blyronism, though they are given little importance and many of them are private to Blyronists. It is unknown if there are Blyronist equivalents to prayer.
Figures[edit | edit source]
Supreme[edit | edit source]
Blyronism does revere Vyro'Nazdea and the Supreme Gods as the ultimate beings which should be followed. It also makes references to Vi'Naherza frequently as Vyro'Nazdea's sister. While these beings are most revered and worshipped, their authority does not extend beyond a figurative one.
Minor[edit | edit source]
Several different races within Ottzello have had different gods, although the religion acknowledges that all of these gods are in fact Taldar. An example is Da Loron Godz, which are all bloodthirsty and ridiculous when perceived as Loron Godz, but acknowledged to be only a Loron interpretation of the Taldar which created them.
