The Acacic Records are a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions and intent to ever have occurred in the past, present or future. As human kind evolved and developed Artificial Intelligence, the Acacic Record was accessed. One Star Lord saw this universal access as a loss of power and reached in and destroyed it, severing the connection forever.
The Acacic Record exploded in shards across the universe. One such shard was found and molded in to an Icosahedron to remind us of what was lost.
