In a time long ago, when the boundaries between the realms of gods and mortals were intertwined, a theory emerged among the divine beings. It was whispered among the heavenly beings that humans were not mere mortals, but rather fallen gods. This belief fascinated many, including one particular god named Aria.

Once upon a time, in the celestial realm, it was customary for the gods to take turns watching over the gates of heaven. On a fateful day, it was Aria’s turn to stand guard and ensure that only those worthy of entering the divine realm would pass through. However, an asura — an embodiment of evil and darkness — arrived at the gates, disguised in the form of one of Aria’s trusted friends.

Blinded by trust and deceived by the asura’s clever ruse, Aria unwittingly allowed the malevolent being to pass through the gates without verifying its godly aura. Little did he know, this asura was a harbinger of doom, gathering valuable intelligence about the security of heaven.

With the information gathered by the asura, a full-fledged attack was launched by the forces of darkness. The realm of the gods was thrown into chaos as numerous deities were injured, and some even lost their lives in the battle against the asuras.

In the aftermath of the devastating conflict, a solemn gathering was held in the courts of the God King. Deliberations were made, evidence was gathered, and it was determined that Aria and his companions were responsible for the security lapse that led to the assault. As punishment, they were to be banished from the heavenly realm to another plane of existence.

However, a perplexing question arose among the divine assembly: How could they ensure that the fallen gods would never find their way back to heaven? It was then that Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, proposed a solution.

Brahma suggested granting the fallen gods a sense of self, a human consciousness that would act as a counterbalance to their godly nature. This sense of self would engage them in an eternal battle, fighting the very same battle that the gods had fought against the asuras. This internal struggle would serve as a test, a constant reminder of their past transgressions.

With unanimous agreement, the fallen gods were stripped of their divinity and bestowed with mortal forms, along with the burden of eternal battle within their minds. They were given the chance to redeem themselves by overcoming the challenges presented to them in their inner worlds.

Moved by the plea for forgiveness from Aria and her companions, Lord Brahma agreed to one condition. He decreed that those who triumphed over the battles within their own minds would earn the right to return to the realm of the gods. Not only would they regain their godly status, but they would also become architects of their own heavens and attain invincibility.

And so, the fallen gods, now known as humans, embarked on an extraordinary journey. Their minds became battlegrounds, where they faced endless trials, temptations, and tribulations. The battles raged on, spanning generations and lifetimes, as each mortal soul fought to conquer their inner demons and emerge victorious.

In the annals of time, the myth of fallen gods turned humans spread across the cosmos. It became a story of hope, resilience, and the inherent potential within every individual to transcend their mortal limitations. And so, the epic saga continues, as humans strive to win the battles of their minds and ascend once more to the realm of gods, where they shall shape their own destinies and bask in eternal glory.
