“To help reduce the risk of corruption of the experiment, the Creator added some extra safety measures.
“First, the Creator hid the design from the creatures. Many would barely notice the mountain or the orb, and only a few would ever attempt to climb the mountain. The Creator even hid the knowledge of the cup. The Creator made the cups invisible and only observable by each cup’s owner. Most creatures would never know they even had a cup, let alone know what it was for.
“Secondly, the Creator added time to the mix. Time gave the experiment boundaries and ensured that at some point the results could be assessed. While seemingly infinitely long and starting with a big bang, the experiment would eventually end.
In addition, the Creator gave each creature a life that lasted only a miniscule fraction of the overall time to maximise the potential for variety and evolution.
“Thirdly, the Creator wanted to give the creatures something to do that encouraged them to search for meaning, for something else. So, the Creator made life on the plain hard. The Creator made time on the plain a toil of survival.
“Forth, the creator gave the creatures the ability to choose. The freedom to choose how they approached their toil would ensure wisdom was observed and considered with an open and free mind. The creator designed things so the creatures could choose if and when they engaged with their purpose.
“And finally, the Creator designed a flaw into the creature’s psyche. The flaw would cause the creatures to self-sabotage their own experience should they try to cheat the design. The Creator called this flaw the Ego, the servant of the non-authentic. The non-authentic would eventually fail at any attempt to climb the mountain, and instead would perish on the plain. Thus, only the authentically oriented would contribute to the process of returning the wisdom to the orb.”
“The Creator wanted to maximise the potential for wisdom to create wisdom, so the Creator constructed the cups so they would increase in size. They would increase in size as the creatures traversed the mountain. They then had a choice to return to the plain and collect more fragments before reaching the summit and merging their cup with the orb. Also, the Creator designed the experiment such that the cup would grow and fill faster as a creature took on more engagement with their path, and even more so when that engagement related to the task of prolonging their species. The logic being that this added complexity gave that creature a different perspective and increased the potential for new wisdom to be uncovered.
“The Creator knew that completing this task would require enormous effort on the part of the creatures. It would take every bit of their strengths, down to the last breath. As a reward for working hard to complete this task and reach the orb, the Creator made available three gifts. Firstly, only those that pursued their purpose or honestly endeavoured to grasp it, and did so authentically, would receive one hundred percent of what was due to them for their toil on the plain. Secondly, cup size growth would result in a greater sense of joy, wellness, and ease with the toil on the plain. Thirdly, the creatures would be given a glimpse of all the wisdom of the universe, as they completed their purpose.
“And to help things go in the right direction for those that engaged fully, the Creator etched into the side of each cup, the details of the design, plus a set of hints of the overall wisdom. These design details and hints of the overall wisdom would be readable only by a few. It was only visible to those who engaged fully with the toil of their purpose, such that they lived in fulness and died before they died. For most these hidden etchings would serve another purpose. Should they find themselves on or close to the right path, the hidden etchings would help the creature sense the correct path without the need for external confirmation.
“Initially, the creatures were too simplistic to grasp their true purpose. For a time, no creature even noticed the mountain or orb, let alone went near it. While still oblivious to the cup, the mountain, the orb, and their purpose, over time some sets of creatures, found ways to reduce the toil and prolong their time a little longer. They joined with others. They increased their numbers. They found new capabilities within themselves. They evolved new skills. This all enabled them to be better able to cope with the toil on the plain. They also got to know the plain better. They used its resources to add comforts and reduce the apparent futility of their existence.”

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.
The story that I am labelling ‘Rule of Twelve’, told over three books, presents a story of hope and love, built on traditional and conservative values in a world where even the needed linguistics have been erased. The books are based in the future. Roughly two hundred years ahead. The books present the outcomes of a world driven to the brink by the followers of the Identitarian, New Puritan, and Utopian related ideology.
The books are written from the ...
