Yet despite the gargantuan problems the race created for itself, it propagated like a veritable disease all over the planet. Yes, you can live, you can function, you can learn with incomplete data. It gets you started. That’s all that’s needed for life to move forward: a volitional push. It needs to be inseminated. Wildly. Seeds thrown to the winds of change and chance. Without plan or forethought? I still don’t know how to answer that question but the two naked lovers on their sweaty bed are answer enough.

I know this sounds crazy, but many lives ago I already knew that “life” was a resolvable conundrum through logic simply by removing the linearity of time from any equation. Past and future become interchangeable, depending on your current needs. You can “travel” across these impossible dimensions without disturbing anyone else’s current process. Those who do so were known as the Avatari and on certain worlds they were called WindWalkers, those who walked between “heaven” and “earth” or more accurately between the worlds of spirit/mind and of physicality.
Here are some thoughts that may help clarify the conundrum for you.
You cannot exist in two different places at the same time in the same dimension, but you can exist as identical “mind entities” in any number of the same place if in parallel dimensions. Clarification: the same place, same time, but separated by the dimensional shift. The greater mind of the Avatari can choose to inhabit any of the identical minds in any of those dimensions.
Another explanation of dimensional shift: think of a dictionary as your cosmos. You want to go from, say, the word “accrue” to the word “write” but they are separated by a thousand pages in two separate volumes. You can do it like today’s commuter by reading through each word and flip through the thousand pages – travelling normal space/time, going from one volume to the other and continuing until you get to your destination.
Or you can “bore” a hole through the thousand pages of the two volumes, travelling only three or four inches to go from “accrue” to “write.” That is the Shearing drive effect. It is violent and invasive. You could also, if you knew exactly where to “re-enter” simply slip your finger from the word “accrue” (you dis-incarnate or ‘die’ at “accrue”) and gently let the book close, run your finger down the edges of the two volumes until you come to the page with the word “write” and enter there (re-incarnate) without changing anything within the books during your process. This is how the Avatari do it.
So now you’ve just crossed one thousand dimensions if each is a page, or about one hundred thousand dimensions if each is a word entry through two universes if each book is a universe. Impossible? Nothing is impossible except what is thought to be.
Another you, or several other “you’s” whom you may, or may not, be familiar with or be aware of, can exist in the past and the future without interfering with your present awareness. An adept can get information from these other “selves” and use that in the current incarnation.
Finally, it must be accepted that yes, the chicken can lay the egg from which it is hatched. That is not a riddle.
However strange this may sound to linearly-thinking brains, this is how it is. Life is not bound by any ISSA’s ability to understand events in the time/space continuum. No amount of prayer, positive statements or deniability living will change an iota in the processes on the event horizon. You have to enter in and join the dance. Dance macabre or the Tango, that is your choice, but you must be familiar with the steps within both type of dances. Life insists on that.
Duty calls, I must leave you with those thoughts for the moment.
Subject: About king Jestor: an addendum
The following bit of Elbre history relating to old king Jestor Tassard, is reprinted here with permission from the titular estate managers of Michele Dellman, historian and chronicler for the Supremacy. Dellman is currently in out-space transit to Minora de Oro to record and analyze conflicting statements issuing from the bloody aftermath of the religious rebellion put down by order of Grand Admiral Chang-X. The Grand Admiral is facing a court-martial on Pax Nova where he must currently reside pending his hearing and the analysis of the “MD” report from Minora de Oro. At this point, all we really know comes from the commercial news sweep Fax-Net. Their reporters claim that millions of unarmed civilians were targeted by sub-sonic waves and killed while attending mass peaceful demonstrations against the military curtailing of their religious observances.
Minora de Oro is one of twelve worlds within the Supremacy granted and guaranteed by Galactic statute the charter of full religious freedom without any interference. Under the statute, Minora de Oro opted to be ruled by a theocracy. It is, however, no secret, that Chang-X who boasts an ancestry that goes back to Túat Har, specifically to the Communist regime dictator Mao Tse-tung, nation of China in C-20, holds nothing but the deepest contempt bordering on hatred for the observance of any religious ritual.
For more information on the early life of Chang-X, see Rise of the Supremacy – Its Military Strategy – Melkiar Invasions and Aftermath by Michele Dellman, freelance journalist and Supremacy chronicler with contributing annotations by Deles Kotmallo of Parnako. The following report is intended to help the reader understand how Elbre was ruled and what that meant for the women of that land, in case there are still doubts.
