The NULL Solution = Episode 141

…You can’t please everyone all the time, but when you can satisfy the majority, it is a start…

Back in his King Ranch upbringing, Deke was used to foreign languages, before elementary Spanish became part of his south Texas way of life.

“Lo que es para el almuerzo.” “Senorita Francine la carne de cerdo y frijoles.”

Poor Deke and his brother thought the men were probably talking trash about their stepmom, but that was all. “What’s for lunch” and sounds like “the Alamo freed people from holes”, even though they “love Francine’s gourmet pork & bean creation”.

The Gifted preferred method of communication is between minds. Do the Null have a clue as to what is going on? That does nothing for the no-small matter of trust.

 #The Null have beautiful children# Thoughts do not audibly register, so the Null are unable to hear that some Gifted female thinks their child is beautiful, which is an unfortunate consequence.

The melodious Olde Language makes a rousing comeback, which is good, but it then leaves the Earthlings in the dark. You can’t please everyone all the time, but when you can satisfy the majority, it is a start.

The matter of Joyner McKinney is another story. The Gifted and Null share a genetic heritage, that some have traced back to the early days on their original homeworld. Celebrating that commonality can be used as glue for reluctant participants in global change. But to be mixed with the lowly humans, who are still relatively new to the Eridanian way and regrettably primitive {especially the one called Sammy Mac}, is a real hindrance to his acceptance. What good can such child do for the greater good? What manner of disease will be introduced among them?

John Q Eridanus is afraid that Joyner’s humanness will turn them all into savages, a marked step back for a superior race that has discarded wars and deplores aggression.

Similarly, Cerella’s status has been diminished. She has embraced the frivolous notion of love, a previously unnecessary emotional bond. That one even needs to express her feelings is foreign. Can she be trusted in a position of leadership without favoring her mate’s family?
