A passage from the poem Masque of Anarchy by Percy Shelley:
“Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you-
Ye are many — they are few”
The human spirit depicted as a lion, our Chi is our life force, our energy is that sea of consciousness/awareness is inifinite. All life is governed by that sea of knowledge, infinite consciousness/awareness energy, in the Final Fantasy VII game and movie it is appropriately called the Lifestream.
