Recap:  Simon has finally arrived at the Eternity Spire, the source of power for all of the over-stones.  His plan is to combine the Endstone and the Banestone together, and use them to power the reality bending properties of the Spire.  And then at last, he can atone for the accident, thousands of years ago, that destroyed our modern world and created the universe our heroes live in today.

And to do this, Simon plans to not only refashion the very fabric of the world and make it into a “modern utopia,”  but also he plans to erase the lives of everyone on the planet.

Some will live and some will die, but Simon will rule over a new, modern world built from the ashes of the old.
