There is a dimention, in the whole connection of universes, that is both here and there and nowhere at once. It seems to influence every part of the everyday lives of the men of Earth, yet it within itself is nothing without the other parts of the interdimetional orchestra.

A dot, a line, a shape, breadth and width, the ability to move all around... and the ability to move in between the tapestry of the fourth dimention -- time. Souls move through time, some hoping to come back to a small planet in a small galaxy in a small universe. They wind themselves though threads of other souls, living many times, seeking the point in which they will live.

Souls are never perfect. Sometimes the darkness in a soul will accumulate so much that it will destroy the soul and become its own evil, bent on meaningless destruction. After a long time, and after many dead souls, many strange mutations began to occur.

Thus the Zeitgeist was born.

Though a child, it fed on the ignorance and complacency of people who were satisfied with their lives and never thought to yearn for anything but comfort. It was the youngest, most robust, and most ambitious creature to undo souls and feelings. It decided to awaken the dead, reuse souls, destroy lives and families, and create disaster. It decided to infest a small planet called Earth, disguising itself in many ways.

No one seemed to notice it. Such is the way of life for humans, taking a caustic event and calling it the wrath of God, thereby making themselves an army of death bent to life. There was always a faction of oxymoronists in the world, unknowingly furthuring the Zeitgeist's cause. Once they died, there was no coming back. They were now the Zeitgeist itself, for it was one and the same.

The light of the melody of life called out to someone, anyone who could help equalize the Zeitgeist and restore the universes to their preious state.

Two souls, suffering from the Zeitgeists's unnatural cruelty, spoke up. The Zeitgeist learned of this, and as they passed to Earth, made sure their quest was one filled with hardship and strife.

This sticks out, but I'm going to wait and see to say if this installment might work better at the beginning of the story. I don't know if it's because I've been reading it in pieces that makes me feel this way, or because it's so vastly different than the normal tone and flow of the story.
