I remember sitting on my uncle’s verandah as a kid, watching Star Trek through the living room’s glass-paned window. I remember the voice of Captain Jean Luc Picard speaking of exploring strange, new worlds and seeking out new civilizations, of boldly going where no one has gone before.
Sulily sleeps suspended inside a transparent, cylindrical womb filled with luminous blue fluid. Her suit sticks to her body like a second skin and has knobby nodes that run up the length of her spine and end at the soft helmet's base at the back of her neck. From the center of the helmet, wires fan outward and upward, gathering at the control center at the top of the container. Her mouth and nose are covered by a breathing apparatus with a serpentine root that coils and stretches down to the base of the cylinder.
Pupil looked at Erika, not at all offended by the look she gave him. He took his plate and set it up on the table and climbed into the chair. He looked at Bambi and smiled. “Aren't you a pretty puppy.” He said as he rubbed her head.
Bambi’s nub started wagging and she curled up in Erika’s lap. Erika put her arms around her and laid her head on Bambi’s shoulders. She soon cried herself to sleep, holding Bambi close.
Liz swam through the reef. Spotting a strange light, she approached a cavern. She looked back. Will the others worry? She continued onward. Something jumped out! It was just a school of fish. She squeezed her way through the tight entrance coming into an open space large enough for a few cruise ships. She looked to her right, spotting the source of a blue light. An arch stood, larger than the one in Mississippi. Liz swam closer. There were glyphs on it. They were unlike the ones she has seen in history class. Some were obscured by gunk. She reached a hand out to wipe it off. Then a blast sent her back and into the dark. *********************************************************************

A chaotic situation exists for the Fifth Level or dimension and that’s not natural, though it can be fun or disconcerting depending on the bent of the entity involved. This type of situation illustrated that there was no real need for the simulators after all. Or perhaps the Fifth Level beings were just stuck in some Sixth Level simulator and this was their challenge to move to the next level. The beings of the Fifth Level have created several simulators to enhance inner connection or the only means they are aware of for advancing to the Sixth Level of awareness. Although oneness is a natural process at the Fifth Level, manifest difficulties occur because there is not enough contrast at that level to clarify the higher-potential inner connection that will be the gateway of the natural telos. Therefore the Fifth Level (FL) inhabitants created several simulators to give those at the FL practice at greater connective integration or oneness through the theory of the Light Orientation of Velocity Evolution, or LOVE. These simulators have various levels of difficulty depending on the degree of disconnection or inner contradiction the Fifth Level being has. The administrators of the FL have discovered a problem with one of their simulators, The Earth Game, which was originally programmed to be a mild, creative experience that would enhance FL being in a natural and pleasant way.
It was late evening when she found the wild onions. She looked around and sniffed the air before cautiously put her head down and started eating them. Since the humans disappeared it’s been hard going. For a little while it was good. There were plenty of scraps in the garbage, but they soon spoiled. She soon started hunting cats, after seeing some of them eating human remains. Now, they too were scarce, and things have gotten much more dangerous. Sometime ago, she saw what she thought was a human. She ran up to it, barking with joy, then it turned around. All she remembered was the yellow eyes and a sharp pain. She has three long scars on her side from that day.
