I have not nominated an honorable mother, because I did not know any, and it is better for you to have none, than one that you cannot rely on. A bad time has passed by, but another is approaching us. Earth did not bear it and Wralda did not create it; it comes from the east, from the core of the priests. It will breed so much suffering that Earth cannot drink all the blood of her slain children. It will spread darkness over the spirit of mankind, like thunderclouds over sunlight. Everywhere and in every way, deception and idolatry will challenge freedom and justice. Justice and freedom will perish, and we with them.

Of three concepts, our descendants will teach their people and slaves the meaning; they are universal love, freedom, and justice. At first they will glimmer, thereafter struggle with darkness, until it becomes bright and clear in everyone's heart and mind. Then domination will be erased from earth, like thunderclouds by storm wind, and no sort of idolatry will be able to do anything against it.
