In the beginning was dogma, practiced for aeons as a form of catharsis. Then came the great cessation, a ball of molten lead burning the altar and effecting the silence of heaven.

There, they prepared the ground before finally, the path was clear to ascend. And ascend they did, to the pinnacle of doom.
