THE NULL SOLUTION = Episode 47
…Skaldic has chosen his own path, he chooses the Null way…
Null Not Void
In times of doubt, when what she sees does not compute, Deimostra McKinney will pursue it to the point of understanding. Just why the Null are labeled as inferior eludes her. And why do the so-called Gifted have the right to lord over them. As far as she can tell the Null she has met are as pleasant, maybe even more genuine than their counterparts.
It is time for Cerella to finish the subject she hurriedly brushed aside when the Null first met the Space Family McKinney. At the time, O was the topic that dominated any discussion that shed light on the Null and their secluded Tower.
That Deimostra is a societal infant and that she can identify injustice is telling for sure.
“It has always been so Deimostra. It has never been an issue. They are not intuitive of the mind. They are inferior. They are well cared for. They lack for nothing. They are Null.”
“And yet Eridanus’ welfare has been in Skaldic’s capable control until the time we got back,” she takes exception to inferiority.
“Skaldic has chosen his own path. He chooses the Null way.”
“Then why weren’t we banished to our own tower or the Null Tower when stepped off the NEWFOUNDLANDER? You must have thought us to be less-than-nothing. Stowaways on your precious property… that’s what we were.”
“It was Celeste who convinced us that you were intelligent beings. She communicated in the Olde Language and you were not considered a threat to us.”
“We have the left old behind and have embraced the new. The Null have no interest in the ways of the Gifted.”
Celeste is near, picks up on her daughter’s argument discussion and adds her perspective. “On Earth, we had people we called slaves. They were savages from the wilds of the continent Africa. They were bought and sold like a commodity… the Null are not slaves.”
Mother Celeste raises both arms and shrugs, “She has a good point Cerella.”
Defeating centuries of perception is like running into a brick wall; the inexorable force meets the immovable object.
“All but Skaldic and his attendant will be permitted outside the Null Tower.”
And that, is as they say, is that.
