In the twelfth century since the appearance of the prophet
Jesus Christ on the now-evacuated planet Earth, Hildegard of Bingen discovers
grace in the moral and spiritual ruins of her medieval world. She inscribes her
visions into Scivias
indescribably beautiful codex of writing and illuminations, thought to be lost
during the collapse of the Information Age.
On the planet Avaaz, in a sea cave with cracked amethyst
walls, Pinky Agarwalia discovers fragments of this beguiling text: a mystic
toolkit including a cosmology, medicine, a morphology of crystals and recipes
for survival – in strange, illegible symbols.
How to decipher this unknown language? As Pinky traces the
diagrams with her finger, a vision appears revealing that water – a guarded
substance – is the alchemical agent: in water, the mysterious script transforms
into feeling and light.
Unlocking the secrets of viriditas
, Hildegard’s mythic quantum energy threaded throughout
her communiqués, provides the seeds for humanity’s rebirth on Avaaz. Lingua
Ignota, Hildegard's visionary ‘unknown language’, arrives just in time for a
world in flux, one whose coordinates are being recast.
