A Creation Story - Part 3 In The Great Hall
The Septemvirs couldn’t remain in their chamber forever just wondering about filling up the universe. Something had to change. Things did change. Ampiodus spilled shards of knowledge into the chamber. It had hatched a grand design by combining the ideas of all the guards in to one universal act of love.
Finally, for the sake of human understanding, this part is a… as far as possible, translation of what happened next.
“Let’s create intelligence.” Ampiodus said.
“Yes, a new and wonderous universe where the Septemvirate sets the rules,” Vonzerotus suggested.
“We must,” the other guards agreed.
“Where will it be?” another guard asked.
“Outside of our realm. It’s the only way,” Ampiodus said.
“Such would give eons of delight,” Liebedos offered.
“Each to his own realm,” Ghosehidim said.
“No, no, no. Together. Our creative powers must unite,” Ampiodus explained.
Ghosehidim was not pleased. “That saddles us. To each their own, I say.”
“This will break us,” Heraketadim offered.
Liebedos just wanted to endlessly spread love. “So let it break us.”
Ghosehidim said, “We must have our own private spaces?” and then shook the chamber with its avarice.
Kusogadu had been silent. This notion appealed to them, but they contemplated a sea of flaws. This treasured idea wasn’t ready. Although left unspoken, they all, knew what needed to happen next. The chamber vanished and each guard materialized in the great hall.
Zavatrati moved into the center. “We need these,” they said showing their precious creation.
“What is it?” Heraketadim asked.
“A place to hold our dreams.”
“What does it do?” Liebedos asked.
“Nothing. We let it live and let it house our ideas. There can be all types. Ours is to give, without interfering with what happens. We can set a new universe in motion.”
“Let me see it.” Vonzerotus said, pulling the planet closer.
“No, let me.” Heraketadim aimed for it, causing the planet to spin as it moved closer to Vonzerotus.
“Here.” Zavatrati created another globe for Heraketadim.
With the second planet spinning a force built up between the two globes. They rotated around Vonzerotus as though they chased one another. All the guards felt Ghosehidim’s delight.
“Magnificent,” Zavatrati pointed to the spinning planets.
Seeing the planets pleased Kusogadu. Doing what no other could, a burst of fire filled the Hall and then formed into a large burning globe. The size of it dwarfed the planets Zavatrati had made but it too began to spin. As if magnetized, the other planets aligned themselves to the burning globe. As the planets rotated around the ball of fire Zavatrati asked, “What is it?”
“It is a fire star. A life giver.”
“We can build a grand universe,” Ampiodus exclaimed.
“But there are things to consider.” Kusogadu said.
“Right now. This moment. That’s what we have. Let me show you.”
Ampiodus stroked their knowledge centers until knowledge bolts blasted forth forming a pool in the great Hall. They dove into it, swimming there for at least two millennia. Not only did they absorb knowledge, but each formed their independent ideas for filling a universe. For the first time, they shared their unique life code in a way that let them restructure, combine and repurpose the code blocks. In there they rewrote whole sections of code, created new algorithms and then emerged changed. They had moved past their preset code to become unique. They were more than the One had made them.
Kusogadu surfaced first. “Some will pass from existence. We mustn’t do this thing,” it said.
“Every septemvir must decide for themselves,” Ampiodus said.
“Some will expire.”
For several moments, which might have been a century or longer, they said nothing. There was something in the knowledge pool that disturbed Kusogadu. The Septemvirate had all come to see as Ampiodus had. They saw a completeness of purpose and design. Was this some kind of divine plan? Did every Septemvir exist for this reason, Kusogadu wondered. Did they really have a choice? Any observer, though there were none, would have believed it to be that way because every member of the Septemvirate had a specialized function, especially suited to create the universe they designed. There were no other options.
Kusogadu took in the spirit of Ampiodus, gathered itself and then vanished from the hall. Isolated in the vastness of space it thought about the new universe. It was a powerful idea. In the guard’s universe there was no permanence. It was like a giant lab where each guard fiddled with ideas. They formed and reformed all manner of things, but in the end, guardspace had limits. The whole of their universe suited them as guards. It would hold no other life.
This new universe would exist outside their realm. It could be an endless ever-expanding bubble just like their own; except of course, they didn’t know they were themselves inside a bubble. Regardless of those minor details, their new universe would have everything the guards imagined. Kusogadu wanted so many things. For one, it yearned to have a cosmic birth chamber. Such a place would harness the power of all the guards and spread life throughout the universe.
“I have troubles,” Kusogadu said, returning to the great hall.
“We are all ready,” Ampiodus said.
“Some will perish.”
“Let’s reconsider this.”
“Do you know why we exists,” Liebedos asked.
“Do you?” Kusogadu countered.
“Of course, I don’t. No one does.”
“But suppose our duty is to create,” Liebedos said
Ampiodus interrupted. “From a single thought, we seven.”
“We know. We know. You touched God. But this is something different.”
“Yes, Kusogadu. It’s the beginning.”
“For you. Not for others.”
“For all of us. It is as intended.”
“There is more to this,” Kusogadu insisted. “I saw something in the knowledge pool. At the edge, deep inside.”
“What was it?” Zavatrati asked.
“I can’t be sure. I had to squeeze into it. The truth of it nearly ended me.”
“Please, you must tell everyone,” Liebedos said pulling them into a love chamber.
The seven formed a circle to begin their mind connected communication. Kusogadu moved to the center, showing the Septemvirate what it had learned in the knowledge pool. Mingling in that mind soup, Ampiodus called for a vote. Before anyone could respond, Liebedos filled the chamber with compassion, but also manifested euphoria, trust and anticipation.
Bam! Their chamber exploded, opening a hole below them. Just as the One had done, they created a new universe. A bubble in space, inside the cube on the same plane where they existed. If you could have seen that bubble grow, it would have looked like two universes kissing. For a time those concentric bubbles pressed together while the new universe grew bigger and bigger. As it formed, electromagnetic force went into the new bubble, taking Vonzerotus right along with it to give order to the new universe.
Next, Heraketadim lost itself there, setting things in motion according to Vonzerotus’ laws. Moments after, the guard of love and Ghosehidim coalesced into one entity. Together, they lost their physical forms to become wholly spirit. Their essence penetrated the other universe. They existed everywhere. Their spirit filled all of the One’s playground. In that state they connected with the One.
Zavatrati spewed out electrons, protons neutrons, atoms and then elements. After a time, various gases rose in the great hall before whatever remained of the guard of matter flowed out into the new universe. Droplets of their material bodies filled the cosmos. Trapped in those drops was the key to life. That thing that had caused the guards to exists, except the god essence had become miniscule, but not so tiny that it lost the power to create.
Kusogadu, seeing the guard essence spread, infused every droplet with a spark of energy. His life algorithm had one key instruction. Survive. Kusogadu pushed stars and nebulas into the new universe. Those too he gave a renewing power. Nebulas could give birth to stars and planets. All was as the guards planned. As the universes separated, Ampiodus added knowledge to the droplets, passing into them the potential for consciousness, thus ensuring some would grow to reflect the image of the guards themselves. That act ended the creation event.Those droplets had become seeds. They would create life. The universe next door to guardspace was a glorious thing.
They hadn’t known it, but that whole slice of the void was theirs. They could do whatever they wanted. If desired, they might have created a multitude of universes. Well, now, I’m getting ahead of the story. Sorry about that. Ampiodus and the other guards had created their universe. One designed by them as they came to see it in their knowledge pool. The One saw everything and it was pleased.
The Septemvirate was no more. Only Kusogadu, Ampiodus and the guards who had become wholly sprits remained in guardspace. The One unlocked the encrypted code that had belonged to the vanished Septemvirs. They devoured it. Within them they assumed power over matter, motion and universal laws. They were eternally whole but felt intense loss. Ampiodus generated a neural network to form a god-brain. The others merged with it. They were themselves and they were each other without separation. Thus, the three became one. Together, they were a god trio. Afterall, they had universes to create.
