About 8 million years ago there was a group of powerfully conscious Archangels. One of them had an idea. He wondered what it would be like to cut himself off from the Source. He wondered what matter would feel like. With His enormously sophisticated Intelligence and using technology of the dimensional chamber along with strong electromagnetic fields, He cut himself away from The Source. Immediately He regretted what He had done. He could not find a way to go back. This was the first moment of darkness.
This Being wanted help so he trapped other Angels and Beings, so as not to be alone, and to try to find a way back. Then they all realised what they had done to themselves and they could not find a way out. They decided to conquer the Universe and so started invading planets and spreading darkness. This was the birth of the dark forces. This was an extremely conflicting era for the Galaxy.
When the Light forces discovered this and realised what had happened, Archangel Michael set a barrier fence around the infected areas so that the darkness could not spread. Other Light Beings created a magnificent Starfleet, the beginning of the Galactic Confederation, to liberate planets under dark forces. This was the beginning of the Galactic Wars.
