    A Parable of the Abyss

    There is a story told in the Abyss of three spirits lost in a desert.

    A Celestial, a Devil, and a Demon each independently found their way into a vast cursed desert where they began to waste away. In the middle of the desert grew a single skinny tree laden with delicious fruit.

    The Celestial was the first to happen upon the tree. He said "if only a had a piece of that fruit to eat I might survive long enough to make it out of the desert". The Celestial then went off to find materials to make a ladder, so that he might pluck a piece of fruit from the tree. Such materials are scarce in the desert however, and before he could gather them he died.

    Some time later the Devil happened upon the tree. He said "if only a had a piece of that fruit to eat I might survive long enough to make it out of the desert". The Devil then went off to find materials to make a saw, so that he might pluck a piece of fruit from the tree. Such materials are scarce in the desert however, and before he could gather them he died.

    Finally the Demon happened upon the tree. He said "if only a had a piece of that fruit to eat I might survive long enough to make it out of the desert". The Demon took hold of the skinny tree and uprooted it, throwing it it the ground. He ate all of the fruit and had the strength to make it out of the desert alive.
