Some say that magic brought about his existence. Some say that the very rocks themselves wished him into being for their own selfish pursuits of being studied and made famous. When he dies, it is said that his spirit will pass back into the earth never to be seen for a million human generations. Some say he cannot die. All we know is that Sensei Eric has taught us the way of the rock, and we are glad.
