This continues the story of The Great Being, the One Self that is all of us. We are following TGB’s roles as the Team of Melchizedek (Mel) and Layla, two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, as they continue their assignment to create homo sapiens sapiens on Earth circa 200,000 BC. Previous installments.
The branches parted and twigs cracked underfoot as KRAK entered their little bower and stopped in the spotlight of sun slanting down through the cathedraling trees overhead. In his hand he held a cluster of pretty wildflowers, which he now with uncharacteristic shyness held out to Layla.
Layla reacts well to shock and so without hesitation she accepted, smelled, and generally made a feminine fuss over the flowers. KRAK, new to this sort of thing, took this as a signal to embrace her and nuzzle her.
He’s a fast worker, Mel observed wryly.
Sweet to think of bringing something, though, Layla pathed back forgivingly. As alpha he knows he has right of primogeniture, or anything else he feels like.
We’ve brought them along very far toward civilized behavior in some ways, Mel agreed, standing up and beginning to make a quiet exit. Very little of it is going to stick as this tribe interpenetrates the general savage culture, but some of it will.
Where are you going? she pathed, as KRAK kissed her wetly with mounting ardor.
Give you guys some room, he sent back as his back disappeared into the foliage.
He found himself at the river not seeming much like himself. What’s with me? he wondered. He gently enforced an inner erasure of all thoughts and feelings and observed what was going on inside himself.
Some minutes later he pathed to Layla, a half-mile away and utterly occupied in her Mission, This brain keeps making predictions of what is going to happen or could happen, and generating chemical signals making this body feel things in reaction to those predictions. It’s predicting loss of you to KRAK and others and making my body feel emotionally bad.
What do you mean “making your body feel emotion”? Emotions are the mind, not the body, she responded.
No, feelings and emotions can start in either place and convince the other place, he told her. This was new to Layla.
He let her focus on her Mission of becoming pregnant as often as possible, and sent conscious signals to his own brain and body that this was all a good thing. We are starting our true Mission here — exult in it and stop believing these irrelevant and wrong predictions.
At that moment he sensed a presence approaching. Uh-oh, here I am breaking my own rule about being caught alone.
