Perfect Equity

A person once set out to balance all things. After stacking everything on either side of an enormous scale, there existed two towering piles of perfect equity.

The person then stood to admire their work and soon found the gravity of existence: Below their feet was a final scale, weighing them against their creation.

There the person still remains, forever bound by fear of inequality and love of humankind to serve as an eternal counterweight to the fruit of their foolishness.
