It is unwise to summon what you cannot dismiss.
— Morpheus, The Sandman #50, "Ramadan," by Neil Gaiman
"As I told you longe ago, do not calle up That which you can not put downe; either from dead Saltes or out of ye Spheres beyond."
— Excerpt from a letter from "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward," H. P. Lovecraft
Do not call up that which you cannot put on hold.
Never summon anything larger than your head.

Let us restore the Tree of Life!
Keel: The Eva series have been our faithful servants. And this is the reason they were created.
SELEE08: Hitherto represent eternity.
SELEE09: The Red Earth purification ceremony.
