*Within the vast expanse of the cosmos,
⠀you are a tiny, warm, and pulsing spark.
⠀⠀Your birth was a brief awakening
⠀⠀⠀from silent eons spent sleeping in the dark.
⠀⠀⠀⠀The universe now sees itself through your eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀So let the breath of sweet gratitude fill you,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀as the light of each new day begins.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀For this moment itself is a miracle,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and to live it is your privilege, my friend.*
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀- John Mark Green
** *[To Shine]* ** is focused on simpler, readable patterns. There are some simple linear streams, a few mildly-complicated bursts, and some relatively simple crossovers. It should be a good challenge for a decent Ex player.
** *[To Illuminate]* ** expresses far more rhythmic detail, providing a brisk pace, some syncopation, a few 1/4 flicks, and generally a more conventional mapping style for people who want a good middle ground. A solid challenge for a good Ex+ player.
** *[The Vivid Spectrum]* ** is in lawless mode and holds nothing back. Flick streams, heavily syncopated rhythmic play, overhead loops, duck/leaning walls reducing reaction time, parity resets, intense visuals, and anything in between. All of it is fair game in this difficulty, making full use of it to deliver a highly synesthetic experience.

All diffs fully mapped. Lighting fully completed. Have fun!
…god I hope the second map I make doesn’t take literally almost 100 hours like this one did.
