The NULL Solution = Episode 195

…A dynamic force develops in the form of one family of explorers…

The people of the Third Planet begin to explore the space beyond their atmosphere, just as others have done before them. They are restless. They wonder if they are alone among the stars. ⃝     can only watch.

     intervenes in the politics on the Third Planet to rebuke the nuclear aggression by the leadership of the United Korean Peninsula. They will not be allowed to unilaterally destroy the balance of power there.      must protect.      must protect the good. Evil is bad.

A dynamic force develops in the form of one family of explorers. Of all those aspiring to explore the Great Expanse, utilizing the Third Planet as a base, the clan McKinney rises above the rest. They have reached the Fourth Planet with the intention of colonization. Colonizing is not a new concept. Other worlds have done so. The McKinney curiosity leads them to a vessel from a not-so-distant star system. The Milky Way galaxy and the Great Expanse will forever be changed.

Then, three galaxies meet. Separation is bridged by altering the fabric of space and time, each to their skill. The illusion of aloneness is shattered. The need for logical coexistence increases with every interaction. ⃝     will make way a path to coexist.

     is fond of the literary twist called the riddle. Riddles are challenging. Riddles require insightful thought. Insight reveals the character of the reader. Dismissing a riddle demonstrates a lack of determination. Determination solves riddles. Failure lacks determination.


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

I am the how & why that blocks your way

Prove your worthiness and the light will show the way back


Such are the riddles posed by us in order to unlock the gates to an order, a confederation of worlds that promotes peace and cooperation rather than conflict. The Creator scorns conflict. Conflict is bad.

Harmonia will be a gathering point among the Great Expanse. It will have a light that shines throughout. All who see the beacon are invited to participate in Harmonia. Acceptance is encouraged. Those who see the light and reject it shall be dealt with, the degree of which will shadow their accounts in ⃝    ’s library of life.

Harmonia now thrives on the Fourth Planet of the star system named Terran, in the galaxy called the Milky Way. They call me Lorgan.

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE

They Call Me Lorgan

There is chaos in disorder. Chaos breeds contempt. Contempt leads to conflict. Conflict destroys order. Order is good. Our purpose is to restore order. – The Mission Statement of ⃝   .

Stardate 11 billion B.C.E.

Right after the dawn of creation, there came an enforcer, the purpose of which was to maintain a reasonable structure for life that may form out of the molecular ingredients that will be spreading to infinity.

As eon-after-eon passes, life from nonlife comes to be, the complexity of which increases steadily. As the stars gather in galactic groups of millions, masses of debris coagulate and coalesce. These planets orbit each according to gravitational serendipity.

     oversees the Great Expanse, vigilant to its assigned task of order out of chaos, compiling notes along the way. Like a sponge it soaks in every aspect of what it means to be alive. From the infinitesimal to the intellectual,      sees all, thereby knows about all. It will be called the Library of Life.

Like a doting parent, ⃝     observes nurtures and guides. True to its directive,      tracks the progress of every single hotspot pocket of burgeoning civilization. Indiscriminately placed and varied in progress, such distances between these is a natural barrier to interaction. Each believes they are alone among the many stars.

Intelligent life develops ways to communicate. Ideas are molded and recorded. Records are compiled.      categorizes and takes in every shred. It is the task      is assigned.

Still more eons come and go. Interaction on individual worlds increases. Rules are made. Populations grow. Technologies advance at varying rates. Levels of communication rise. The thirst for knowledge is insatiable.

     is witness to it all. We do not interfere with the natural progression of life.

…This appears to be a starfield for feckless foreigners, having all the feel of a jail…

“We will return to Sexta A and reassess our strategic position.”

It is not easy turning around a mobile planetoid {just ask any self-respecting comet}, especially when you cannot find your way. If it is possible, Collapsar’s trail has turned ice cold.

“We appear to be in a singular galaxy. Sexta A or any other galaxies, known or otherwise, have ceased to exist.”

Related imageŽupzïð would issue an order if he had a clue. “You have been in this place for a long period of time. Is there anything that you do recognize?”

O is here, but it looks different.” A shiny black version of Lorgan has been lurking all along. When you peer at this version, the only things you see are the trillions of stars “There is evidence that other worlds have been wandering within these boundaries.”

This appears to be a starfield for feckless foreigners. It has the feel of a jail. Prison planets are scattered all over the “regular” universe, so the concept of confinement is far from foreign.

“The Great Expanse has no boundaries.”

“This one does. There are no stars at the end. ⃝    will not allow us to go no further.”

I am the how & why that blocks your way

Prove your worthiness and the light will show the way back

“Another stupid riddle,” apparently the Ÿ€Ð do not have aptitude or the appetite for them. “Keep a lookout for that ridiculous rotating beam from the Terran system. That will steer us in the right direction.”

What about the riddle, pilgrim?

Lights out this way are few and there is little detectable heat generated by what stars there are. It is like they have been hung in the sky, held in place by invisible strings. Harmonia’s lighthouse is nowhere to be seen.

…In the bigger picture, you are seeing what Lorgan wants you to see…

CHAPTER EIGHTEEN

Two Sides to a Mirror

A pane of glass is meant to look through not at. When you coat one side with a layer of silver and other coatings, you can no longer see through it. Instead you see your reflection. Needless to say, only a fool looks at the backside of a mirror.

For an untold and incalculable period of time, anything that faces Lorgan sees a reflection no matter at what distance. Just how that squares with the logic of physics remains a mystery. Are you staring at reality or some measure of perception, i.e. what you want to see? In the bigger picture, you are seeing what Lorgan wants you to see.

Just what did Collapsar Axis see the moment it decided to pull out of Harmonia? Župzïð the Last saw nothing but yawning darkness, before his cosmic caravan was dispatched from the timestem, unceremoniously so. Other of his followers saw tranquility or rest, but they were not in ultimate control of their fate.

Collapsar finds itself in a place with few stars, easily counted from any angle or field of view. Have they been shrunk to the size of a speck of space dust? Have they traversed one galaxy after another only to be reduced to a lonely habitat in a finite dimension?

Even the reunion with their lost fleet of twelve ships is surreal. Surely, the fleet must believe that they have been rescued from this empty place, only to be regarded as insects in a jar to Župzïð.

“What corner of the Great Expanse is this?” he pleads to the captain of the lead cruiser of the 12, who has been wandering aimlessly for months.

“Not a single parsec is recognizable Supreme Leader.”

Supreme Leader “insists” on positive responses.

We will return to Sexta A and reassess our strategic position.”

Lorgan is the lever, Mars is the load and Earth is the fulcrum; Universal accordance is the goal…

CHAPTER SIXTEEN

Harmonia

 

Harmonia permanently established – Stardate 2057.00
Part 1 of 2

If Lorgan is the lever, Mars is the load and Earth is the fulcrum; Universal accordance is the goal.

The blinding light of hope has shone to the edge of time. The lighthouse on Mars becomes known at a rate 3 gazillion times faster than SOL. Like insects to a flame, civilizations from infinity and back, come to see for themselves.

Instead of the baffling calculation combo of number and word {that has been correctly deciphered by a Null}, a specifically vague invitation is piggybacked to the sweeping beam:

The time has come for all empires to unite in the climate of harmony and collaboration. The fruit of hostility is like the dirt of a dead world. The rewards of unity are numbered by the galaxies new and old. From before time began, I have observed the rancor of My children and it saddens me. I Am, therefore I Will Be Always. To those who have seen the Light, come. To those who ignore the Light and this message of peace, I know you not.

No matter the language, though restricted to this dimension, the message projects outward, the meaning is clear.

⃝    is established as a formidable force in the continuing process of intergalactic development. Not requiring of worship or tribute, ⃝    asks that this new order coexist in a manner worthy of respect. Whether it be individuals on individual planets or worlds in already established territories, ‘Get along or I will be along.’ is the ⃝    order of the day.

An ever-widening circle is sprouting on Mars. Once upon a time, travelers wondered whether this nondescript planet once sustained life. Maybe it did, maybe it did not, but one thing is for sure, it is currently teeming with representative participation from hundreds of worlds

…Surely the Ÿ€Ð  will overcome anything this Harmonia nonsense has to offer…

“What is a Seljuk cruiser doing in the Terran system? They are too timid to venture out this far.”

“The Seljuk ship is idled alongside one of the towers. I detect three creatures on board.”

“Have they seen us?”

We are larger than this planet’s two moons.”

“Have they seen us?”

“I wish not to offend the Great Leader. Perhaps we should investigate the complex named Harmonia.”

There is no Ÿ€Ð translation for the term Harmonia, harmonica maybe, because a harmonica is a thing. Harmonia is evolving into more of a concept, a function of ideology. Župzïð’s ideology can be contained in a thimble. “His way” in the Milky Way may not wash.

“Make ready the shuttle for planetary exploration. Assemble the most loyal warriors among us to accompany me.” He cannot help himself. Caution & bluster are mapped in his makeup. It is important to him that his image be strong, even when it is unnecessary.

“The weapons have been disabled Great Župzïð!”

“We may not need them!” His landing party consists of the most warrior warrior-types from here to Sexta A. Surely they will overcome anything this Harmonia nonsense has to offer.

Any brashness is stripped away at the entrance to the Martian atmosphere. All the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men… he may as well have brought a fiddle with him, for all the good his bluster does him here. His Collapsar-to-Harmonia shuttle is ushered to its rightful place alongside the mile high tower. Naturally he would have preferred one of the other 3.

Make that an ant w/a fiddle. The latest and final addition to the Mars reboot is dwarfed, as it should be, by the enormity of the moment, just as were the Earthling, Seljuk and Eridanian before him. Tom, Dick and Harry… no, Sam, Chase and Skaldy, all equally awed in their own way.

Neighbors separated by acres of new Mars soil, each following the instructions given them by their host. Not only would it be impolite, but it is mandatory, now that the Null has unlocked the first door of the mystery.  A beginner’s seminar: “Getting Along in the Great Expanse”, the true purpose of Harmonia is unveiled. Like a father speaking to his child.

Still the unknown Lorgan/O remains just that, who, what, where, how and why; in what order is a topic of for a later day. What is clear is that Lorgan is the straw that stirs the drink. No longer does it hide in the shadows, as it first did when Gus McKinney discovered the sphere obstructed from view by the Terran sun.

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?
