The NULL Solution = Episode 102

…A man called Xat was banished to this cavern… he and his family and associates for all time and space travel knowledge was to die with him..

Deep below the tower Eupepsia, in a secret place hundreds of feet below the Spaceflight Expository, Ekcello, Supreme Elder of the High Council of Eridanus, meets with the eldest of the Olde. They are the keepers of the Olde Language, so as to preserve it for posterity. They were not, however, charged with the preservation of the olde spaceflight technology, like the hastily abandoned time-space-fold capable ship named Defender back in the day.

Albert Bierstadt (American, 1830-1902) (Painter)

Defender was resurrected for the purpose of giving the Triangulum Galaxy, and the Seljuk, a non-hyperphysical house-call. Granted, it was an open-ended resurrection, but now that the TSF feature is on the fritz, they endeavor to meet with the Great Beyond, Epsilon Eridani style.

The cavern below Eupepsia is a place where no rational Eridanian soul has tread for untold cycles, dating back to the olde home world exodus B.V., Before Vulcanization.

With ancient antiquated written text in hand, thanks to the keepers, Ekcello descends into history, the time when Earth was a place for exploration and a method for collapsing the fabric of space & time was deemed necessary for the sake of “progress”. It is a scary place. Normally he would have Cerella with him to supplement courage. She is, however, the very reason for this séance of sort. Wife Fortan would not be caught dead here.

#Who was the elder in charge of space technology# Ekcello inquires of the Keeper of Customs & Traditions.

#A man called Xat was banished to this cavern… he and his family and associates for all time. His knowledge was to die with him#

#But his spirit lives on. We are here to contact him. We cannot bring Cerella back to her rightful place without his knowledge so-named TSF#

They are not in the grotto but a short time, when it comes alive with activity. Spirits stir and time itself is fractured.

Chapter 1 Tone-Setter for LATOBSD

Leave a comment

Chapter 1 Tone-Setter


LATOBSD covers roughly 60 years, more than enough trips around
the sun to both meet and say goodbye to too many fine people;
From the spring of youth, to the winter of maturity, from the dawn of unrighteousness, to the sunset of discontentment.

In the interest of accuracy, I will sort through the most flagrant
fracturing of history perpetrated by little ol’ me. Remember the
“Rocky and Bullwinkle” feature: Fractured Fairy Tales? If you are too
young . . . . here are some pictures.

So . . . . here we go, hop-scotching from through the pages of
The Life and Times of a Black Southern Doctor, sifting from front
to back. Feel free to leaf back to the earlier pages, to refresh your
memory. And I will try not to rush.

____The Life and Times of a Black Southern Doctor 365

If you want to leave well enough alone and believe that all things
I penned are true (you’d be wrong), thank you investing your time and money to read LATOBSD.

For the rest of you:

Nearly all of the main Tallahassee characters were real people.
I used their actual names and because of the volatile nature of the
events, especially in the long-ago 1950’s. If I had fictionalized their names, I could never have kept them all straight. Who they were and what was their
relation to A.O. Campbell needed to be as is. Perhaps it is due to my
simple mind, but George Lewis, Charles Wilson, Franklin McLoud,
the Dr.’s nurses, the Dr.’s attorneys, the Prosecutors, Starke Prison and
Audrie Franich, all appearing in chapter 1, are real. Their true role and actions are my guessing(s), for the sake of an interesting story.

Now, some of the machinations surrounding his trial and
subsequent imprisonment, well that is a combination of speculation
and fictionalization on my part. In the afterglow of true history, none of this tinkering affects the outcome; in real life he was tried and convicted.

I skipped the trial completely. Had I not, the book would be 50 pages longer and even more frustrating. And the book would have ended on a real downer.
