The NULL Solution = Episode 162

The Null’s Solution has worked…

“Full stop – don’t anyone breathe!” He is serious. The last time he and Skaldic were in this position, bad things go happen.

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:

-EARTH

-ERIDANUS

-SELJUK

-Ÿ€Ð

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.

When the Martian horizon is just right, Harmonia’s guiding light reaches Earth, every time around, the sky lights up; like day, even if it is night.

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?

The NULL Solution = Episode 50

…When your life expectancy is immaterial, keeping track of time’s passing is left to the astronomers…

Sand of Time created by Gadion

Ekcello, the Supreme Elder of the High Council on Eridanus, has certainly seen it all. From the unfortunate vulcanization of the original home world and subsequent relocation of his people, to the puzzling loss of an exploratory expedition to a neighboring star, to the unexpected arrival of the McKinneys and now, the mass neutralization of the Gifted.

The passage of time is subjective. One Eridanian cycle is an extrapolation of several factors at work in the Epsilon Eridani binary star cluster. On the planet of the McKinneys, they keep time by its revolutions, whereas here, a cycle is numbered when the dominant of the two stars appears on the Gifted side of the planet. When your life expectancy is immaterial, keeping track of time’s passing is left to the astronomers. It is not a matter of concern.

It has been several cycles since the collective cessation in Eridanian function. Ekcello is aware of the reason for it. He alone is able to overcome the self-defense mechanism that causes their society to shutdown, whenever something unknown appears on the scene.

⃝    is such an occurrence. The shining orb that Skaldic had spied in wonder turns out to be the switch that extinguished the brightness of Eridanian society. Unable to grasp the scope of its being, the whole of them retreat to within, from the mystery without.

Notwithstanding, it is Ekcello’s responsibility to rise above the indefinite and map a course to go forward. ⃝    has come and gone. Whether he or anyone else fathoms its intentions is secondary to the resumption of normal activities, so he comes down out of his tower.

**Immediately a psychic connection between father and daughter is reestablished.**

“Ekcello is back among us,” Alerts Cerella to the Earthlings and Nulls, as matter-of-fact-ly as only an Eridanian can. From one mind to another, he has apprised himself of the current situation, at least as far as the Gifted go. By Cerella’s uninterrupted reality, he is taken aback. Has her human husband diluted her Giftedness? She seems to be otherwise unaffected.
