Synopsis:
Cosmo, the cosmic child, is urged by his Guardian to travel the world. He meets the people of the Air, Water, and Fire. On returning home the Guardian dies of old age. Disconsolate, Cosmo wanders back through the world to see all its good attributes corrupted by Death (Air Pt 2). The King of the Earth urges him to learn more, but Cosmo threatens to destroy the world to put an end to its misery (Earth). Instead he becomes enlightened to a more wonderful truth, and rejoins the cosmic cycle (Finale)
