For the price of a single album.

Part 1 - SPACE (total time 15:05)

Folding Space - but they know a way of travelling
Passing through the Event Horizon - using a source of unimaginable power
Space Requiem - music to accompany the journey

Part 2 - EARTH (total time 15:17)
Oceans - something living in there that we don't know about
Winds - the endless power that we must learn to use
Storm - the power of nature on display

Part 3 - MAN (total time 13:45)
Tribe - man needs to join together to survive
Calls - but communication is the key to evolution
Machines - allow man to acheive things beyond his strength
Time - where man begins to measure events in the cosmos

Part 4 - RITUAL (total time 20:02)
Semblance - something is forming but we don't know what it is
Fugue - man puts a religious face onto the inexplicable
Mystic Circle - but a more ancient force is at work
Apparition - the secrets of the universe are revealed
Ascention - then rising up into space, from whence we came
Departure - now leaving on a spaceward journey
Spores in Space - until arriving at another planet, somewhere ....
