Um, 42, yeah that's it. 42. That's the answer to everything. Remember that, and you'll be fine. Now good. Always remember 42. Or was it 52?

We do whatever feels right in the moment. People spend too much time worrying about what they have done, or what they will do. They never see where they are, or what they are doing NOW. Even the ones who DO concentrate on the moment often spend a lot of time trying to categorize it or judge it. "Is this the right thing to do?" "How will this effect me down the road?" That's dire bear shit.

We are created into this life not for any purpose. There is nowhere to go, and nothing to do. We are already there. Where are we, one may ask? Here. Now. There is no journey. There is no goal. Everything that matters is right here, right now.

The above best sums up the outlook of Forian, whose influences are difficult to document, for example, when the gods set about creating their followers, Forian, always wanted a highly versatile and unpredictable race. He did not want them to have the unpleasant disadvantage of having only one form all their life. He also did not like the idea of depending on another god's advice when that would just take away from his individuality and originality. So, feeling especially unique one day, Forian went out alone and created the changelings, a race of beings that can change form. These beings immediately spread much confusion about Avlis. The confusion that they spread was not good, nor was it evil. It was just...well it was confusing.

So now what? If enlightenment is a crock, what do we do?

The answer is very simple. We do whatever feels right in the moment. When a bird flies through the morning air chirping, it doesn't worry about whether it SHOULD be chirping, or WHY it is flying. It simply chirps, and flies. If at the end of that chirping flight he nets himself a nice juicy worm, he does not reflect on all that flying and chirping he just did. He eats the worm as if the flying part never happened. Then he takes off again and looks for another worm, never contemplating his recent meal.

People spend too much time worrying about what they have done, or what they will do. They never see where they are, or what they are doing NOW. Even the ones who DO concentrate on the moment often spend a lot of time trying to categorize it or judge it. "Is this the right thing to do?" "How will this effect me down the road?" That's dire bear shit.

To know Forian's will, one must simply act in the NOW, without regard to past or future. If it feels good, hey, why not do it? If you don't want to do it, then don't. If you hate something, deal with it right then. If you like something, show it. Want to help someone? Go ahead. Only care about yourself? That's fine too.

All of it is fine, so long as you don't give it a second thought. Wars are fought, marriages are broken, and people are murdered all because of THOUGHT. Who need's it? There are no organized temples of Forian, they have no need for it, the mere erection of the temple building would require more disciplined organization than Forian desires, and to the best of this researchers knowledge, the organization of the church is such that even if a structure was erected in Forian's name, No cleric would have the time or the inclination to reside there.

The holy warrior of Forian, is like that of Mikon, aptly named: "The confounder". It is not known for certain where or when Confounders came about. Some people even believe that they arose in several different places at the same time. It's entirely possible. It IS known, however, that they all follow Forian, and Forian's philosophy of self-gratification.

Ferrell is known to have a shrine to Forian.
