The NULL Solution = Episode 163

…This series of events does not do much for the self-confidence of an already itchy band of compatriots…

Has any Ÿ€Ð seen anything like Mars {Harmonia}?

Certainly the interstellar gypsies aboard Collapsar Axis have not. Any forward progress is stopped, which is a monumental challenge when it comes to large object kinetics. The only thing harder than getting it started, is getting it stopped; “on a dime” is not in the cards. Up until now, they have not had the reason to halt its progression to Earth, even though that irritating ⃝    has watched them with the vigilance of a hungry bird of prey.

To say that Župzïð the Last is exasperated is an understatement. They have come a long, long way and have been rewarded with just as many questions than answers. 1st his Ÿ€Ð fleet of a dozen ships gets vaporized {presumably}, then his homeworld falls victim to universal dynamics {bad luck or intentional}. This series of events does not do much for the self-confidence of an already itchy band of compatriots.

“Great Župzïð… that pointless mathematical equation has been replaced by this,” the Collapsar communication chief brings more contradictory information to his beleaguered leader. He had been instructed to ignore the omnipresent message.

I am the how & why that blocks your way

2 + 1 = 6

6 – 2 = 9

0 – 1 = 0

Solve the what where & who and you can pass through

 MY RIDDLE HAS BEEN SOLVED. IF 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.

What is a despot to do? Out of necessity, his authority is not to be questioned, whether you hopped on the Collapsar train from the start or anywhere along the way. What Župzïð says goes. But Župzïð does not know what to do. He has not been able to sequester a single Earth leader for explanations about… well anything. To add to his concern, he is warned about the presence of a Seljuk cruiser; too many choices, too many choices.

He has been invited to join a club that he does not know if he wants to be a part of.

He has had an eyeful of Mars for days, without anything to compare it to.

He has no before & after images.

For all he knows, this could be an elaborate trap.

THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 264

…“Yes Fortän, I am afraid the times are tilting back to our uneasy past.” He speaks to the female Eridanian of greatest familiarity…

The dust still uneasy on hurried graves-3 by Nilima Sheikh,

Founder Shrine

Founders Shrine

As well-liked and welcomed as the Earthlings have become, their overall impact on the average Eridanian is profound and growing. This very subject has prompted the Supreme Elder of the High Counsel to gather the other members, at the Founder Shrine, the point where the first settlers set foot on this Utopian and enchanted world.

The Shrine is like no other structure on Eridanus, the only such brick & mortar allowed to use the architectural look of the Mother Planet. Its opulence and grandeur stands as a haunting reminder of their sorted past. For the “average” Eridanian, special permission is needed to visit it.

Ekcello comes here most often, gliding through the hall of this edifice, to hear the echoes of a long forgotten civilization. In keeping with time-honored tradition, only the Olde Language isused here and so it will be during this special session of the High Counsel.

In this very hall, speaking the Olde Language, another of the elders is in search of his/her roots: “It is refreshing to speak aloud Ekcello,” chimes the other, in rusty tones and pitches.

“Yes Fortän, I am afraid the times are tilting back to our uneasy past.” He speaks to the female Eridanian of greatest familiarity to him. She is his mate, the mother of Cerella, and just so happens to Elder a distant towered city.

“Did you bring our daughter with you?” Her tone chills as she utters mention of her offspring.

“She is too close to this matter Fortän. Her involvement with the humans is affecting her objectivity.” He is similar in pragmatic tone.

“You have convened the High Counsel concerning the Earth people, have you not?”

“It weighs heavily on my mind, as all can sense. There is a need for a consensus assessment of the growing emotional influence of these earthlings on our world.”
