I'll explain your metaphor.

[metaphor]
Swirling colours exist; beautiful, intense colours. And yet, there are some, of the dry, dull persuasion, who oppose them. They take the intensity, and seek to acidify it, make it poisonous. Make anyone who embraces those colours—SHUN them, far away.

But with strength, we can restore the neutrality, the amenability; we can know and appreciate these colours. They shall fill us with strength, and allow us to soar, in a wicked, perilous flight, above all the old and dried-up cursed souls.

And above all, there will be a greater neutrality; a greater adhesion to the harmonious colour-wheel. A higher order that won't so easily slip into imbalance; one which will require even the dullards to evolve. When they do evolve, however, it is indeed a sign that progress is being made.

Through contrast and conflict with the bad, the good and the free and the colourful find growth, becoming higher and stronger and ever more prosperous. It's a prophecy for all the colours of the world.
[/metaphor]

[explanation]
A belief beheld is a beautiful pallet of colors. And disbelief is the nullification of such colors seen by the beholder.
Remaining strong to a belief in the face of analysis reinforces those colors making them even more vibrant.
In doing so you will have evolved into a higher order of believer portraying a harmony of color for others to follow.
By never changing you grow to become more prosperous (referencing people following you and being eggheadedly strong)
[/explanation]


s13ep, I've explained your ineffable expression! Which means you now answer to me. Behold, I, your New Lord, digress!
