The NULL Solution = Episode 162
…The Null’s Solution has worked…
One thousand-one, one thousand-two, one thousand-three goes by… so far, so good. No abject rejection as yet, just the looming visage of Lorgan. Of course he-she-it would be here.
Skaldic fills the group in on how the McKinney clan factors into the convoluted equation, as currently posited and transmitted, along with a respectful description of Lorgan’s role as gatekeeper and peacemaker.
In the bat an eyelid, Chasonn’s ship is sucked into low synchronous orbit safely above Harmonia. Blink again and four new buildings have sprouted, in the four directions on a compass, each reasonably tall and absolutely identical. The mysterious main tower turns into a mile-high lighthouse, a brilliant beacon that rivals the brightest star in the Great Expanse. Like a radar sweep, the beam projects away into infinity.
The Null’s Solution has worked. What is next? What it is!:
MY RIDDLE HAS BEEN SOLVED. YOU ARE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
YOU ARE INVITED TO OCCUPY YOUR DESIGNATED TOWER. IN DOING SO, YOU THEREBY ACCEPT THE TERMS PROVIDED HEREIN. YOU WILL BE INSTRUCTED AS TO THE PURPOSE OF HARMONIA AND YOUR ROLE IN INTERGALACTIC PEACE.
ALL OTHER CIVILIZATIONS WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO REGISTER THEIR INTENTIONS ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF HARMONIA.
The Harmonia Beacon does not go unnoticed. Just like a wildfire it spreads it unknown message throughout the galaxies. It seems to be crying out, ‘Whoever you are, wherever you come from, let this light be your guide.’ Of all the strange changes on Mars, this one tops them all.
Bastions of lesser-developed planets begin to pray to the “God of Light”. During the “known” history of the Great Expanse, has anyone seen anything like this?
