Five hours later, as the Dinatha blasted its way towards Utopiam, Marr and Luna were making their way through the underground tunnels of the base.
They had successfully procured the things they needed, packed up their h-pod and jogged all the way out to the old and rundown sheds and hangers that hid the underground base. They had also showered and said goodbye to some colleagues.
“Do you think we’ll ever see this place again?” Luna asked as they approached the training centre.
“Who knows. Perhaps you’ll be a rubbish haulier and find yourself back here in 3 weeks?” Marr replied as she peered through the window in the training room door.
“Come in ladies, take a seat,” Teacher beckoned from within.
Teacher was at her usual place, but no one else was in the room.
Marr and Luna entered the room and took a seat each in the circle.
“What an exciting time it is! Luna, what occurs to you at this moment in your journey?”.
Luna stared back.
“Marr?” Teacher continued.
“’Am I ready?,’ that is what is on my mind, Teacher,” Marr replied.
“Good thought, but wasted. Of course you are ready. You are always ready. You can never be more ready for the moment at hand than you are when you are at that moment,” Teacher shared smiling, self-congratulating herself on her own brilliance.
Marr smiled back.
“However, I can remind you of something that may help ease your mind. And, Luna this will help you find more ease with your path. Luna, Marr will share this daily with you until you too have memorised it and can pass it on.”
With that, Teacher settled back in her chair and began to talk in a reverend manner.
“The Creator’s Experiment. Before the beginning there was a mountain. Hovering above that mountain was a huge orb. Contained within the orb was all the wisdom of the universe.
There was nothing unknown. There was nothing more to know. Or was there? It was hard to tell. It was accepted that learning creates further wisdom. It was accepted that the process of seeking wisdom produces wisdom. So if the wisdom was just idle in this orb, how could one be certain that it contained all the wisdom. What if there was more that could be discovered through the use of that wisdom?
So, the orb’s creator decided to conduct an experiment. The Creator hit the top of the orb. A crack appeared and out poured all the wisdom contained. The wisdom erupted out into the sky and split in to tiny fragments. Each fragment duplicated itself, many times. Each duplicate contained a small piece of each piece of wisdom. The fragments formed as tiny droplets. These droplets rained down on the plain that surrounded the mountain. When the droplets reached the ground, they would cycle back up into the sky and then rain down again. It didn’t rain over the mountain, only the plain. Thus, no wisdom would ever return to the orb automatically. It would need to be collected, carried up the mountain and put back into the orb.
The Creator then put all manner of creatures on the plain surrounding the mountain.
The Creator suspected that any singular piece of wisdom may be too great for any creature to grasp. So, the Creator gave each creature a thimble sized cup to catch the fragments that rained down. The idea being that each creature would then carry the droplets back up the side of the mountain and at the top, merge the fragments back into the orb.
The Creator constructed the experiment such that the process of climbing the mountain would enable said creatures to look at the fragments they carried. Through this process, they would learn and obtain growth in themselves. And perhaps, as they considered the fragments of wisdom, they would see something new or different in those fragments. This would then enable the fragments to embody the adjustment or addition to the overall piece of wisdom when the fragments were reunited with other fragments within the orb.
“To help reduce the risk of corruption of the experiment, the Creator added some extra safety measures.”

“Hi,” came Luna’s voice as she bounced into the suit locker.
Dukk turned around.
“Are you alright? You are all flushed?”
“Yes, I am fine. I was practicing some yoga in zero-G. I lost track of time. Quite challenging and not what I expected.” Luna replied.
“Yoga?” Marr mouthed silently at Luna from behind Dukk.
Luna smiled cheekily.
Marr held her hands up and looked away as if to say ‘I don't want to know’.
Dukk laughed. He’d been an apprentice too once. He knew what was on his mind the first time he was in zero-g. And, he could tell an intentional lie.
“Are you sure you want to try this now? I can go alone and you can get back to your ‘yoga’?” Dukk asked in gest emphasising the last word.
“Nope, I’m good. Let’s do this.”
Thirty five minutes later, Luna stood at the port outer doorway. She was in awe.
Dukk and Luna had completed the same process Bazzer and Marr had done earlier. Marr, with ...
Time is a gift. A gift that is precious and beautiful. A gift that must be opened immediately as it comes by once only. Missing the opportunity of that gift is a travesty. Lacking in or having the absence of hope is one sure way to miss that opportunity.
I chose years ago, to use this gift to help others make the most of it too. In the space between, I love, learn and write. I do this all in the hope that we return to our truth.
My writing is futuristic, honest and brutal at times. I hope to bring focus to that which matters most: Love, choice, and truth.
