For the better part of 2003 and 2004, the band worked on their most serious undertaking to date: a concept album about the nature of existence of God and humankind.
BE attempts to explore the many facets of human existence. It begins with the narration of Animae, someone or something who/that has existed for as long as he/she/it can remember and contemplates the nature of his/her/its existence and then begins a journey of understanding with the words: "I will call myself GOD and I will spend the rest of forever trying to figure out who I am"
It once again featured The Orchestra of Eternity, and included a memorable song whereby the band had set up a phone line for fans from around the world to ring and leave their message on â€œGodâ€™s answering machineâ€. There was an overwhelming response from fans who laughed, cried and poured their soul into their messages. The messages were collated and presented with a peaceful instrumental accompaniment, resulting in what the band considers to be one of their most touching tracks they have ever recorded.
Somehow I seem to have this predestined hunger for knowledgeA talent for seeing patterns and finding correlationsBut I lack context
"Searching for yourself is like looking for the house you stand inHow could you possibly find it?It's everywhereIt's all you knowAnd there are no other points of reference"
I am sorryPlease forgive usFor this human lack of humanityThis evolutionary travestyThis tragedy called "Man"...called "Man"...
Pathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematicianEvery one of them is a splinter in my eyeI hate the Peano Space and the Koch CurveI fear the Cantor Ternary Set And the Sierpinski Gasket makes me want to cryAnd a million miles away a butterfly flapped its wingsOn a cold November day a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was bornHis disdain for pure mathematics and his unique geometrical insightsLeft him well equipped to face those demons downHe saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rulesHe used his giant brain to turn the game aroundAnd he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his headA bulbous pointy formHe picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret downTake a point called Z in the complex planeLet Z1 be Z squared plus CAnd Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
