Chapter 52:

In less than a minute’s time, there was a knock at the door, and indeed, Leigh-Anne and Mordecai were standing outside the guest quarters occupied by Rebel, Aimée, Elliott, and April.

As Elliott let them in, Rebel remarked “Right on time! I guess clairvoyance isn’t that much of a stretch for you, once you’ve crossed over. Am I right, April?”

But it was Mordecai that answered first, despite the fact that no one saw his lips move.

“No it’s not, but also keep in mind that it’s a great deal easier once the five of you turned yourselves into transmitters, for all intents and purposes. ‘The Knowledge…’ is an extremely powerful sacrament; after permanently altering your neurological bio-chemistry, existing neuron pathways are not only strengthened, but new functions of your consciousness and perception are possible.”

“Imagine living in a one-room shanty with no windows or doors, and never leaving until one morning you awake to discover that for your entire life, you had been shut into the basement of a magnificent mansion, with many rooms, each one with several doors capable of connecting you to any other room in the house directly.”

“The ‘wormholes’ described in Einstein’s General Relativity were originally called ‘Einstein-Rosen Bridges’ and postulated that Time and Space could be bent sufficiently to allow instantaneous travel, not only to places far too remote to be accessed in an entire lifetime, but even other dimensions and parallel universes.”

“String Theory, in addition to postulating about resonances and their relation to what determines the parameters of any reality within any given universe outside your own, also suggests that the concept of a ‘Singularity of Time and Space’ does not account for the more likely probability of an infinite series of singularities, each with it’s own universe and time, like soap bubbles adjoining each other.”

“Wormholes would allow passage from one adjoining universe to another. Without them, multi-dimensional travel, or existence would not be possible.”

“Although human physicists have not yet been able to discover the ‘Universal Factorial’ that accounts for and connects the quantum, sub-atomic systems, atoms, molecules, planets, solar systems and universes into a series of continuous rules and transitions, doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.”

“That gap in understanding what connects Quantum Mechanics to General Relativity, Special Relativity, Matter/Anti-matter, Black Holes, Dark Mass and Dark Energy has a parallel within your own mind.”

“You’ve heard references to what people call a ‘Long Conclusion’ implying that the series of thought engrams that had to be traversed by way of Logic and Reason was something like five million dominoes that had to knock each one over the next, in order to go from Postulate to Conclusion.”

“Now imagine the longest formula ever written…suppose you could manipulate that series of characters, like pearls on a string, to bend the last one back around far enough to connect to the first one.”

“That would represent an Einstein-Rosen Bridge, or ‘wormhole’ within your brain.”

“Welcome to the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.”

“Mankind’s worst, and perhaps original mistake was to be tricked into believing that they had to trade Instinct and Romance for Reason, or for that matter, Love for Logic.”

“And to think that I bred my two finest dogs, and delivered you!” Rebel was overcome with emotion, incredulous, yet like a proud parent.

The paradigm shift would have overloaded most people’s coping mechanisms, but she dd not try to over-think anything, so in the absence of contradictions, it “was what it was.”   

“But why me? I treated you like I was your mother…loved you like a child, but…I must have seemed more like a lost soul…or a fool.…”

“That’s why I came here to save you. You balance the equation…the salt against the sweet…the spicy against the mild…the obvious contrasting the occult.”

“You are the catalyst that activates the others. Your suffering will lead you not only to your salvation, but also to that of the others.”

“Each of you has been led here by your individual, as well as collective Kharma.”

Leigh-Ann’s radiance spoke volumes about rapture, illumination, and ‘The Knowing.’

Blissed beyond mere words.

Finally, she breathed what seemed like a sigh of relief. As she bemusedly shook her head, all she could say was “Imagine my surprise…!”

Elliott looked like the deer in the headlights.

“What about Chianna and Jed?” he asked.

“They’re coming…in about five…” April volunteered.

“Five what?” he queried.

“…Four…three…two…One…” April continued.

“Zero!“ (Chianna had already let herself in and Jedidiah was standing behind her.)

“So what did we miss?” Jed inquired.

“I was going to ask you two the same thing.”

Elliott looked like the cat that just ate the canary.

Chianna looked like a joyful canary.

‘The Knowledge’ had leveled the playing field.

No regrets, no recriminations, no accusations, no insecurities.

‘One Mind…no mind…Mind like water…Mu-Shin.’
