I’m here to offer my creations created in a place far beyond my own modern reality, a place that is past the perceived hells and in a magical space of total existence, that holds no laws, no boundaries and only infinite possibilities.

We stood there looking at each other as Cedric was busying himself with irrelevant tasks to try and give Bino and me some privacy. I don’t think I have felt as anxious as I do now. This moment, facing Bino, facing my destiny and myself feels like chaos. It feels like energy is bouncing all over me, inside me, on my skin, and all around me. Bino’s words start to fade in as I realize he is talking.
The outside world was unknown to her, but she could see a glimpse of it through the window in his room. His room is the only room in their whole subterranean with a window to the outside world. He was the mastermind behind its construction and he selected every detail, including which people to bring down there with him. He gathered the people he felt best to start over and create a new world. She is a part of the first generation to be born below ground and she is his eldest daughter. As she sat staring out his window, he started the painful meeting by asking her who she is going to select to breed with. She just sat there quietly as he went on about how this whole place was designed to save humanity and how she is the next in line to lead them all.

“They had you captive this whole time? How can they get away with that? Didn’t people in your school wonder where you were?” I started asking questions as soon as Bino stopped talking. I desperately wanted to know everything he knew.

We walked in silence back to my room but the noise inside my head was profound as I imagined it was similar for Bino too. Bino said his dad was an Earth scientist. His dad is one of my enemies and how horrifying that he must be one of Bino’s enemies too. I mean, my parents were vacant and often handed me over to the enemies but they didn’t understand what they were doing. Bino’s dad betrayed him outright! Knowingly!! Oh wow, I feel so horrible for ever thinking Bino’s life was like mine.

As I leave the center of the forest I start encountering other people. Each person I pass we exchange pleasantries and not in a habitual way, rather with sincere care. My heart felt completely full by the time I had walked out of the forest. There is this distinct border at the edge of the forest. One can walk right through but the rest of the ecosystem stays within the border. It actually rains in the forest, so you can check the precipitation screen for the schedule at a couple entry points. Some people enjoy the idea of walking in the forest as the rain comes down.

My mind is racing, even more than usual. I can feel that everything inside my body is agitated. My confliction feels justified. I want to be free from this chip inside me that keeps me connected to the earth scientists. However, I have to connect to another computer, another artificial being to do it. Why does it make me angry though? Why at the depths of all my feelings is anger? I realize I’m lost inside my own world as Cedric gently touched my arm. The look on his face is of pure concern and genuine guilt.

The lights have risen in my room, it's my alarm to get going for the day. What a ridiculous concept a day, or what any particular day is out here, in the middle of space floating on S4. There is a day of some kind, relevant to where we float but it’s such a ridiculous time frame that it’s irrelevant to humans.We do float or rather revolve and rotate in this particular galaxy as if we are organically part of it. I’m not at all sure how any of it works. What I do know is humans didn’t create it. Apparently, the species who did is long gone. What I find to be peculiar are the little archaic particulars amongst the wonder of a world created just for saving humans off from planet Earth. Strange.

AHP, S4 Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. I lay in my pod, thinking about how it all started, over a half million miles away. To be a part of the machine was the only way but to be aware of it and control it was god-like. God is this essence of total knowledge of the machine, life and consciousness. This world we are all connected into has someone or a bunch of someone's playing god with it. This group has desires. Some of them are genuinely good but most are horrifically bad only seeking to fulfill their own desire to be god, to control. This is the age old struggle, the battle between good and evil. It's just all been hidden behind the doors of laboratories. This group of people created an environment, an entire world where they could, did and for the most part, still do whatever they want. This group, just like any other group, has leaders and differences of opinions amongst its people but they agreed on one thing and that was the world was theirs to control.
