Arc did one of her half-smiles, "The big bang isn't what they think... or it is, kinda. It's evidence, but they haven't probed behind it to understand what time is and how in a way, all matter is still right there in that infinitely small speck. You see, energy and matter are one and the same. Time and distance are also the same thing, hence "spacetime." When we imagine time as linear, and know that we occupy one moving moment of it, that's some progress. But reality is a little stranger, Jack.
Imagine all souls as energy, bound to their matter (which is also energy)... and that discrete packet of energy is in its own space and time. Each packet is in a slightly different spacetime, so they interact due to the linear nature of time, but are still separate entities that we call 'souls.' We know that energy cannot be created or destroyed, thus souls are indeed eternal... but they are all still right there at the start of time, safe and sound in that speck, and also here in the present moment. Since they are out of alignment (slightly, on the infinite scale of time), they can occupy the exact same space... the same infinitely small point - the start of the universe. So, my friend, we are all really here in this reality, and not, at the same time. It is one universe with infinite pockets of spacetime, each filled with energy - it is like the most amazing quilt of creation in more dimensions than we know.
And, it has to be this way. Our creator can't even begin to keep control of all this without the ability to separate us in our own spacetime bubbles. Then there are the fixed time point check ups that bring the induced fit events - they keep evolution moving in the right direction, stop us destroying our planet completely. They are the reason for prophets.
We need a truly humane humanity, peace... a planet of apes will be a planet of war. So, all this unusual activity, Jack, it's just God saying 'Hello, be kind, share nicely, take care of your planet.'"
"Tyler, I'm a huge romantic, yet my relationships are private. By their nature, that's what they are - intimate. When we create a societal norm we also create stigma for those who choose a different path, or for those who enjoy time together and then grow apart. I say let people be who they are, love who they love. Adults have the right to choose how they love one another. I prefer unconditionality and freedom over possession. A love anchored in the moment stays pure and real."
"Dale, I don't give a crap about the medical establishment; all they do is shine the shoes of big pharma with the sorrow of their patients. Addictions are the need for intensity of feelings, so that's the drug they need, real natural joy. Life in this sterile dystopia is like feeding an infant watered down milk, who can thrive on that? We're gonna helped addicts to find intense feelings in healthy ways - by being truly present in the moment with a natural healthy passion. We're gonna get to know them, help them to get to know themselves, then once they find their passion we just stand back. If we get it right, they'll be addicted to life, addicted to helping others and addicted to shining like the god damn stars they were born to be."
"I'm asking you to wipe out years of conditioning, all that brain washing. What's real is that we bank on one another, our kindness is our currency. With money the elites could buy up every bean and grain of rice, every lick of food on earth and blow it up. That's the good news and the bad all in one. We can rely on each other, we already do, but the money is the thing we must burn. It's time to start anew, relearn trust and cooperation in a brave new world."
"Alex, look closely at your new love. Only kind people can truly be strong, for without it all they are is a mimic of a rock, one so cold it will shatter under a blow from above. True strength always comes with warmth, with emotional intelligence and forbearance. The strong protect and nurture no matter the situation. If you make a new relationship with this person, their emptiness will drain you. They will show little reaction to your pains, demand that you give more to them, and you will, over and over until there is nothing of you left to give. Then they will be angry, like someone thirsty trying to drink from an empty vessel. You will feel inadequate, broken, compelled to keep giving to the one you gave your life to, confused as to why it is insufficient. Alex, only you can alter your path, your timeline, your life. Every rock in the sunshine is warm, and with such a partner life is always summer."
And there they were... the rich men. It was a long line of "penguin suits" and it made April smirk. Others saw fine tailoring; she saw God's little joke. It was penguins who made huge rock piles to impress potential mates and these guys were just as silly. All them were penguins who never knew when enough was enough.
“Eve, everything you were ever taught was a lie; yet those who taught them never knew what falsehoods they peddled. Our species can only thrive with a more natural life, one in harmony with our world, with nature. Our minds are shaped by the cultures we are born into, and one that measures self worth in money, greed and power is a corruption to all, a poison. We are angels breaking out of hell, my angel, so hold on tight. We've got everything to gain – home, community, our very souls. We are kind. We are compassionate. We are brave. We love our Earth and the animals with whom we are blessed to share it with. There is food for all, water for all, shelter for all. Life is sacred, all of it. Your worth is infinite, just by existing you are loved. So we're finding ways to live better with less resources, ignore the apes who think they're in charge. Be your own leader. Think. And above all else, love.”
"Pete, I need you to calm that inner hurricane and think, for a thinking population is a free one. The rise of the machine has given us a decline of the body; the rise of the computer has given us a decline of the mind. Yet technology is only a tool, and we can choose to use it differently. That which subjugates us, can free us. There is real wisdom out there; seek and you shall find."
"Emma, communication amongst our species goes mostly under the radar. It is subconscious communication concurrent with the conscious communication. It's not just body language either. Most of the meaning of a conversation is in the 'junk talk,' it's in the throw away phrases and extra words. This is how we let people really know what's going on at individual, group and species levels. And it is absolutely honest. It's in songs, stories, art... just like in dreams, all those metaphors carry a meaning we innately understand. I listen, Em, I do. And I hear pain, struggle and a search for love, the divine spirit and peace. We are brilliant, just like the bird who builds a nest, or flies in formation, we are coordinating and cooperating as best we can."
There was a time that my thoughts became tormentors, a torture only escapable by sleep... which had become fleeting. But then I realized that if I never "replied," if I let them float by like a call unanswered, then in time they would cease. At first they became a little worse, yet soon they ebbed. One day I noticed they were gone and just the noticing brought them back a little, but only a faint echo of what they had been. They've been gone a long time now, those terrifying thoughts. My mind is quiet, healthy, happy. Just like any bully, they go when ignored.
