The NULL Solution = Episode 143
…The Null accepting nature will spread, eliminating the musty smell of judgement which hangs below the humidity laden clouds…
While Deke was consoling Joyner and pondering what it means to be human, Cerella is doing the heavy lifting. As in any organized civilization, laws are necessary to maintain order. If an individual or group gets out of line, there is a specific rule to point to. Now that the luster has worn off Eupepsia, she sees the need for anti-discrimination laws; for the Nulls retroactively and Joyner presently.
Princesses and Supreme Elders aside, Cerella takes matters one step further; directly to the governmental configuration.
“I am proposing institutional restructuring, my fellow elders. We are living in changing times. We can no longer operate in the mythical climate that blatantly ignores… even rebukes a large segment of our population.”
In a room filled to the brim with tower elders, and millions of ordinary spectators via visual link, the silence is palpable. Change comes hard and slow.
“I envision an inclusive body of leaders, located here at the base of Eupepsia the foundation of our culture, where every segment of our society will have a seat at the table. My dream is for Eridanus to be an example by which other worlds can model themselves after.”
The telekinetic chatter is nearly audible. Not all of it is negative.
“Each tower will choose a representative to participate at the Eupepsia Assembly, the new center for Eridanian unity!”
An entire population is glued to their video link. Eupepsia would no longer be viewed as the tower of the elite. It will be the Tower of the People.
The people are encouraged.
The Null have everything to gain and the Gifted have nothing to lose, that is unless deep-rooted prejudices cannot be set aside. Certainly the Null would not look at Joyner McKinney as a pariah. Their acceptance will spread, eliminating the musty smell of judgement which hangs below the humidity laden clouds.
Two votes were taken on a monumental day down the road; one silent, one using the Olde Language. The tower Eupepsia has been sanctioned by the majority of Eridanians to be the center of governance – cheered on by four Earthlings and witnessed by a very proud Ekcello. Eridanus, the world where people live an excessively long life, produces a milestone that rivals its storied beginnings. —
— In the sky, not so high that it cannot be seen by the whole planet, ⃝ shines brighter than ever before. Each individual Eridanian can see their reflection.
“Lorgan.” Deke McKinney marvels.
Lorgan is witness to Eupepsia Dreaming.
