Recap of last week's episode.

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa.

In our last episode, Stari-ki was contacted by the Shaitan, who reported to Lucifer himself. When asked how he was getting on with Nastassia (Queen Neva), Stari-ki by answering positively also made a marriage proposal to her. At Stari-ki’s unspoken request, Neva left him alone with the Shaitan, who then told Stari-ki that Neva is an Agent. He explained further that Neva is under Rebel surveillance, and encouraged Stari-ki to play along with the game. Feigning agreement, Stari-ki doesn’t let on that he knows his own true identity is an Agent too.

I didn’t hear your answer, the Shaitan pressed.

Sir you know you can always count on my loyalty, Stari-ki professed, and yet also still felt deeply.

As soon as they cut off the call, Templar-ji took off after Neva, following his instincts, and caught up with her just outside camp. She studied him as an animal would, unsure as to friend or foe. He took her hand and then into his arms and kissed her.

They know you’re an Agent, he said.

I’m a what? Neva asked.

You and I received final training together in that classroom you saw. I can see it now too. We were Agents.

What are Agents? Neva asked.

I’m not sure, but they represent one side and Rebels the other side, Templar-ji explained. Agents say everybody is one person. Rebels say the person we think of as God and our own self is actually one of many gods who stole the Universe from the others, who are now called the Rebels.

Sure I’m an Agent! Neva concluded. Then the implications set in. People in a position to destroy us at whim know I am a sworn enemy. What are we going to do? she thought to herself.

He nodded. The Rebels could see their every move, could destroy them any time they wanted to, and unless Templar-ji and Neva could hoodwink them, night and day forever. it was only a matter of time before their destruction was assured.

We are going to die to live again and continue our mission. For as long as we can, let’s send out messengers to bring instructions to people everywhere. That’s what we can do for right now, Templar-ji said. Neva thought for an instant, nodded, and then kissed him.

Recap of last week's episode.

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa.

Blu and Ska were relaxing with their wives, enjoying watching the children play, and thinking how wonderful it would be if life was always like this. Blu pondered what their duty was, asking “What does the Universe want us to do, and why?” Unaware of Stari-ki’s transformation, Ska warned Blu that he might be mentally spying on them. Meanwhile, still in Neva’s tent, Stari-ki is asking the same questions. Neva tells him, “We’re all parts of the One consciousness,” and Stari-ki again wonders if this is an enemy thought. Except he no longer believes that Agents and the backstabber are his enemies. Suddenly, the phone rang in his mind: he was being contacted by high command. What now?

The Shaitan the planetary military governor

The Shaitan

It was the Shaitan himself — the planetary military governor — who reported to Lucifer Himself. Templar-ji made sure to think of himself as Stari-ki. The Shaitan seemed jovial and collegial. Well, are you among the living at last, young man?

Lucifer

Lucifer

Sorry sir. As I told Goma in a lucid moment, the rest of the time since my last report I was in a coma. I am just up a few hours and was about to report, Stari-ki reported with a ring of truth.

Good, good, your rivals up here wanted to blast your ass but I told them to let me handle it, the Shaitan said. After a moment he laughed. I’m a man of my word, son, so I do have my finger on the button right now.

Stari-ki

How may we serve, sir? Stari-ki responded.

How are you getting on with Nastassia? the Shaitan asked.

If you mean Queen Neva sir, Stari-ki said, we have only begun negotiations to combine forces, but I speak confidently when I say it is done. Stari-ki was looking into Neva’s eyes. Neva smiled and nodded. This was the marriage proposal.

We of course can observe your every move down there, the Shaitan reminded him unnecessarily, although Neva raised her eyebrows. Stari-ki shook his head and held out his arms to indicate the degree of resolution that could be seen from the Shaitan’s command post, about a yard on each side, and then pointed to the roof and shook his head again.

Of course sir. We have been progressing according to your past orders. What are your current orders sir? Stari-ki asked.

Neva

Can she hear us?

Stari-ki thought only an instant before responding, Yes sir. Of course they know she’s in the tent, he thought in his hopefully-hidden mind.

Neva understood and stood up to leave the tent. She looked at him and he nodded, so she left and headed as far away as possible.

You can see she’s left now sir, Stari-ki said, and the Shaitan grunted assent.

You see, son, she’s an Agent, the Shaitan began. Our alterations to the native brains worked like a charm and she is under our spell. But her instincts are Agent instincts. We can’t control her every move. All the new brain achieved was enough inner competition and distraction to erase pre-life memories. We keep her under surveillance and hope to catch a whole batch of them that way. You have to play along with the game. She didn’t know we exist until she met you.

I suspected it sir, Stari-ki responded.

You’re a smart kid, Stari-ki. Stay loyal to me and you will go far.

My best to all,

Questions of Duty and Purpose

Part 68 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us. Previous episodes.

Recap of last week's episode.

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa.

Stari-ki probed his experience of the Oneness with everything and decided he wanted the Oneness to be the Truth, and that the Rebel view now seemed a self-dwarfing way of looking at life. Still lying in his arms, Neva told him the name he was called in her earliest memory: Ad-am Templar-ji. She then asked him to explore his earliest memory. Stari-ki threw his mind back in time, to before his birth on Ceres, and then relived a terrible experience of being in a fight with mindblasts and being hit with something so big it knocked him out. He remembers calling out to the enemy: Hail to the second son — which made no sense to him.

Lying on a fur on the ground with their wives, Izbel and Asa, Blu and Ska watched the goings-on of the tribe around them, enjoying the day. So far no one had emerged from Neva’s tent to give orders, and so Stari-ki’s Army and Neva’s tribe were hanging out and playing games together. Blu and Ska had the perimeter manned as always, but a feeling of peace overcame the normal paranoia.

Tribe toddlers visit Izbel and Asa.

Two of the tribe’s toddlers were chasing one another and stumbled on the edge of the fur, falling into the arms of Izbel and Asa. “You sure are cute!” Izbel exclaimed and hugged and kissed the child. Asa was cooing and baby-talking and touching noses with the other child. Blu thought, Sure would be wonderful if life was always like this.

Ska agreed. Being able to have kids of our own, to teach, to pass the days like this, to hunt and play, have fun, and not have to be at war all the time.

What is our duty to ourselves and to life, Blu wondered. What does the Universe want us to do, and why?

Ska sent him a warning look as they both realized Blu’s thought would be taken by Stari-ki as inappropriate for a Rebel, and suspiciously sounding like an Agent. Who knew when Stari-ki would be back to normal? He might start mentally spying even before he came out of Neva’s tent.

In Neva’s tent, the lovers continued to while away their timeless first day together, between lovemaking and reliving old memories as a way of getting to know each other and themselves.

“I can’t remember anything before the fight,” Stari-ki said after minutes of trying. “It’s like there’s a block there.” Continue reading

Throwing Out All Beliefs

Part 67 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us. Previous episodes.

Recap of last week's episode.

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa.

If they were getting their orders in the same room and Neva is an Agent, Stari-ki now senses that he must be an Agent gone rogue or brainwashed by the Rebels. As a Rebel, it would be his duty to capture and eventually kill Neva, and he knew he wasn’t going to do that. His duty now was to love and protect Neva, and if that meant switching sides, then so be it. Letting his guard down, Stari-ki begins the tender dance of love with Neva and they shift into Flow state, with their attention completely in the Now. Stari-ki feels the Oneness with everything and realizes this is the ultimate reality. The One God is the Truth. And the Rebel story is a lie.

The lovers in the afterglow

In the warm afterglow, in each other’s arms, Stari-ki’s mind was rushing with a flood of revelations. He had just seen for himself that the Rebel view of the cosmos was incorrect. There was a singularity, a Oneness, and each of them were That. He now understood that something interfered with realization of this ultimate truth and caused people to make up other explanations, as the Rebels had.

What though if the Rebels were right and what he had just experienced had been an illusion perpetrated by the backstabber? Something inside him rejected that notion and he probed it to make sure it was not more manipulation of his mind from the outside. No, it was his all right. It was his aesthetic preference that the Oneness be the Truth. He wanted it to be that way. No one had to twist his arm or his mind. The Rebel picture of reality that he had accepted long ago now seemed like a harsh and self-dwarfing way of looking at life. What he wanted was to remain in the Oneness that still partially lingered now as Neva looked teasingly into his eyes waiting for him to say something.

“What’s my real name?” he asked huskily. Continue reading

We Have Met Before

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa. Previous episodes.

Stari-ki awakens from near-death to behold the beautiful Neva with her eyes full of love and concern, and his heart is melted. The attraction is mutual and the two start psychically picking up on each other’s thoughts, one of which is “Why do I feel I recognize you?” Their spoken words are in different languages but they understand each other telepathically, which is how they will learn each other’s language. When challenged by Stari-ki to reach back to her first memory, Neva finds herself back in the womb, where she touches earlier memories. “You were in them,” she told Stari-ki.

Stari-ki was thunderstruck. “What are we doing in that memory?” he asked Neva and she shook her head. Unclear, she pathed, remaining quiet so she could continue to try to recapture that brief flash. But it was gone for now.

Neva' memories from long ago.

“We seemed to be in a small group, sitting on a cloud or something, and yet at the same time we were in an enclosure, something gods had built,” she reported.

“What do you mean by gods?” he interrupted. He now recalled that upon awakening from his coma just now his first reading of her mind had found her thanking the One God — to him, the backstabber. Could she be an Agent? he thought to himself, and then quickly threw up his strongest and least perceptible mindblock. He achieved this by having a continuous erotic fantasy, a trick he had discovered in puberty when his friends reported they couldn’t hear him when he pathed in that condition.

Fantasizing about Neva was effortless and he realized he had already been doing that subconsciously, so he was just stepping it up a notch. Maybe she just subscribes to the local superstition, which, on many planets was of an underlying unity behind Nature. Of course primitives could not imagine that the world began with multiple gods, and that one had taken over domination, Stari-ki had said to himself long ago, never realizing that he himself was the one who had been brainwashed.

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. To infiltrate the Rebel forces on the planet, they walked into the near-dead bodies of Blu and Ska around 40,000 BC on the coast of northwestern Spain. Taken into the Rebel Stari-ki’s army, they trekked southward, made a miraculous crossing over the Straits of Gibraltar, and are now discovering Africa.

In our last episode, Canda expressed her gratitude to Blu and Ska for saving her life, kissing Ska a bit more fully and fantasizing about having her first sexual experience with him. An aroused Ska shared a similar fantasy adding his wife. Meanwhile, Stari-ki is slowly recovering and dreams that Goma is communicating to him from her spaceship, which she actually is. Ever the double agent, she tells him Command thinks he’s gone rogue, which is confirmed when Stari-ki confides his distrust of Command since being attacked by Aldus. Goma hopes Command will not overreact.

Stari-ki was coming around at last. Even before he opened his eyes he knew he felt like himself again. Well, maybe not deep down, where he was still a mass of confusion, having somehow touched his own resistance to inflicting pain. But at a muscular vitality level, he felt alive again, the familiar energy flowing through his body.

Neva and Stari-ki

He opened his eyes and was dazzled by the beauty of Neva’s face inches from his own. The concern for him and love in her eyes melted his heart. Where was his normal distrust and caution? This new soft self of his, was this healthy? Or was it going to get him killed? Better to go with being the person he knew so well, or to relax into this new self?

“Oh,” he said in a husky voice, his right palm just barely touching her cheek.

She backed up slightly, seeing that he was awake at last and looking very perky indeed. That look in his eyes… she saw that he was as attracted to her as she to him. That was a boon for which she thanked The One. She noticed that he mentally picked up on that thought. They both realized simultaneously that the other was psychic, both thinking, Who are you? Who am I? Who are we?

Stari-ki sat up, feeling his normal strength or maybe more so, and Neva gawked at him for a brief instant before adapting, causing them both to smile with amusement. “Neva,” she spoke her name aloud and touched herself. He nodded, “Stari-ki”. Why do I feel I recognize you? they each asked the other simultaneously, laughing. We have to stop doing that, they both pathed in unison, sparking the uproarious laughter that comes with getting a Cosmic Joke. Stari-ki wiped a tiny tear of laughter away from his eye and noticed the unusual event. Continue reading
