Creation Story - Part 2 The Septemvirate Awaken
Ampiodus awaken. The new universe that the One created housed the Septemvirs. They were seven guards with seven great talents. Together, they embodied the completeness of the One. It was time to grow into their purpose.
Eons whisked past while the Septemvirate explored, unlocking new and deeper knowledge as they went on. During that time, Liebedos, the guard of emotion, sustained itself in a chamber of love. As its power grew, the chamber spread across space, allowing the other guards to develop their emotion centers as well as form love for one another. In that chamber, they merged into one great being, but it was Ghosehidim, the guard of identity, who amplified the identity zone of each guard. It reasoned, in the absence of the identity bands the Septemvirs might collapse into one huge non-functioning thing.
Now you have a complete idea of what these guards were in their universe. To make things even clearer, let’s just say the Septemvirate lived in the great hall, inside a love bubble on separate planes of existence. They weren’t idle though. At various times, for unspecified ages, one or more guards drifted away in order to experiment with their ideas.
After a time, the guard of matter experimented at the outer edges of the universe. There Zavatrati created spheres. It materialized the tiniest of particles, and the largest of them. But these lifeless pieces of matter always vanished until Kusogadu ventured to the outer edges of their universe. Those two started all manner of mayhem out there. They cluttered space with energy particles. Sometimes, Kusogadu used negative energy too. When this happened, the guards studied how the particles connected or ran away from one another. They thought it was so funny. For them, it was all a big game in their playing field. For endless lifetimes, they created atoms, various elements and combined and recombined them to form various compounds. If you know the elements of the periodic table, you can bet these two Septemvirs created them. Even the ones no one will know about for years to come.
In a flash, space became a rich field of objects. Clusters of those objects littered space near the great hall. Heraketadim, the guard of motion, hurled them through space. In some spots, matter flew across space like horses in an unending race. At least that was true until Vonzerotus, the guard of laws, tampered with those aimless objects. It added gravity to pockets of their space. Sometimes, objects crashed into one another, they might sling shot off other objects, or just settle into a constant orbit around another object. Those acts of order delighted Vonzerotus. It, enacted laws on the smallest to the largest of Zavatrati’s creations.
There were laws of motion, laws for the gases and laws for tiny subatomic particles too. It’s important to note, Vonzerotus designed laws because it wanted to give order to the chaos created by the other guards. Most interesting, it never asked, “why does that feel so right?” Anyhow, for Vonzerotus all things needed governance. To tell the truth, Vonzerotus is the reason the seven guards became the Septemvirate. Until Vonzerotus decided they needed order, the guards were just seven unique entities that existed in their universe. No one really likes laws, but it was clear to Vonzerotus that the universe needed law and order.
To the Septemvirs, minutes, eons, seconds, millennia, googolplexes are all the same. For them, there is no time because there are no suns, or moons, jobs, schedules, orbiting planets or deadlines in the whole entire space of their universe. Let’s call their time, god time. Everyone already knows what god time is like. Think back to those times when you feel as if no time has passed and then it’s hours later. What about those times when a few minutes feels like a lifetime, or a lifetime feels like a few minutes? That’s god time. Keep this in mind because time references are for humans.
The laws in guardspace were set by the One and there wasn’t a thing the guards could do to change that. In fact, there is a unique god property to prevent certain changes in guardspace. Everything they did ended. Only their ever-expanding minds changed. Why is this important? Because, after messing around for billions of years, setting things in chaos, and then ordering that chaos, the guards wanted more. And that was exactly as it had happened to the One.
With so much fooling around under their belts, the Septemvirs hibernated in the great hall. Each enveloped in its own thoughts. How long they remained in that state can’t be expressed in days, years, millennia or even googolplexes. They were, and it was.
For a time, Vonzerotus considered things like, what is it to be a law? It contemplated the laws of physics, laws of nature, laws of attraction or shall we say, it contemplated a design for a lawful universe. Ampiodus pondered the nature of mind. It had perceived the one and it knew the One existed as pure thought. The One, it came to believe, was a limitless ever-expanding mind. This, however, is an incomplete understanding. As it stands, the One is not only limitless mind, but also limitless possibility and an all-powerful creator.
Liebedos oozed love throughout space. On occasion, it gave thought to filling the entire universe with the spirit of love. That was the sum total of all of Liebedos’ thoughts. On the other hand, Ghosehidim asked, what is existence? This idea filled it with wonder. The pressing question happened to be, “What is essence?” Identity, it believed was the essence of reality. From its desire to understand existence it crafted a notion to create a unique thing. An individual, a separate functioning thing sustained by its own spirit.
Heraketadim had a single obsession. Setting everything in motion. Making it such that all things moved. During the hibernation, it came to view stillness as an eternal curse. With steadfastness it worked the issue until the space around it began to spin. The chamber did too. The other two guards had very clear and distinct musings during the hibernation. Kusogadu had a single question, “What is life?” The question opened the way to formulating a key of life. It would be a living thinking being, mingled with matter, energy and laws.
Indeed, some might suggest Zavatrati had the simplest of all concerns. There is truth to this, but at the same time ideas of matter required deep thoughts. At the heart of it, Zavatrati asked, “What is the smallest component of matter and what are the rules of matter?” See, that’s not the least of it. If matter were to fill the universe, Zavatrati had to understand everything there was to know about matter.
More often than not, the Septemvirate communicated in their stasis chamber. By studying every idea, they gained an understanding of the need to work together in order to realize their deepest desires. This was most true for Ampiodus. It gave reason and logic to the other guard’s ideas. Growing ever more concerned about the empty universe. Ampiodus asked, “Why not fill it up?” This question lingered in their cocoon for a millennia.
