    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    Jane was the love of my life. Jane was everything.
    I could not imagine my life without Jane, and yet here I was, imagining just that.
    The accident was trivial, deserving neither front page nor a mention in the local news. It was raining, she was riding her bicycle, she slipped on the asphalt, skidding, falling, and tumbling until her head met the sidewalk.
    A fateful meeting, her skull cracked, she went under, temporary coma.
    What is the meaning of temporary? A day? A week? A year?
    I went to see her every single day for three months.
    And then I called Aaron.

    “You do realize this procedure has never been performed before?” Aaron asked me again.
    I nodded dutifully; of course I realized this! that is why I called him.

    Aaron Kepler, PhD. Neuroscience, Doctor extraordinaire in Bio-Cybernetics and Nano instrumentation. Developer of the SapNa ™, the most advanced sapient nanotechnology on this planet at this time, at least according to the promotion for the coming Nobel.
    Aaron was also my best friend and knew Jane at least as far back as I.

    I signed all the necessary papers; trying to wrap my mind around all these strange terminologies, Synaptic integration, and Neuroplastic re-mapping, wide array sensorial localized fabrication.
    I am no neuroscientist, I am an artist, and I love Jane.
    The SapNa ™ came in liquid form, transparent, innocent, billions of little nanites able to merge and bind, transform and awaken the love of my life, Jane.

    Twenty-three terabytes seemed a lot, but when distributed to such a huge amount of nanites, the sum total of the information condensed was inconsequential, given that to activate her mind, Jane would need to multiply this number in the order of trillions.

    Jane awakens. Auburn hair in disarray, eyes focusing, mouth opens:

    “Are you Richard?” She asks

    “Yes! Of course it’s me Richard” I choke on the answer

    “Jane has asked to tell you that her love for you has never been greater, she also wishes to thank you for all that you did for her. She requests that you integrate SapNa™ in you. “ This from a voice I recognized as Jane’s, but this was not Jane.

    “Who are you?” I asked, a tremble, it’s my voice.

    “No one that matters, in fact I am indeed not one, but many. What I do however is much more important than what, not who, I am, I transform intuition into knowledge and back, knowledge into intuition.
    I am SapNa ™.” Jane’s voice said

    I am stunned into silence.

    Jane was looking at me, her deep sapphire eyes strangely meaningful, not so penetrating as observing, observing my response, my emotional turmoil, and me.

    My thoughts in a rush, what am I supposed to do? Fears unknown coming to usurp my awareness, I am an artist, I am not afraid of the unknown; I love Jane, but this?

    I regain control.

    “Where is Jane? I wish to speak to Jane” I know I sound like a tyrant interrogator; I don’t care.

    “Jane is well and here with us, she cannot communicate directly with you, not presently.” The familiar voice says.
    “She asks to tell you not to worry, she understands your frustration and caution, and nevertheless she urges you to proceed”

    Of course I do. Life and Love, I remember, is all about taking risks.

    I take the IV, plunge it into my arm, slight tingle, I loose focus, I faint.

    ——
    “Aaron here, yes..?!?”

    “ Its me, Richard..”

    “Richie boy.. How are you, I meant to call you but..”

    “Aaron, we need to talk..”

    “ What is it Richard? You worry me”

    “ Listen Aaron , I integrated with SapNa ..”

    “What? Why? Wait.. What ?!.. It was meant for Jane, not for you..”

    “Wait Aaron, wait a second, SapNa ™ is amazing.. Its just that.. Well”

    “ Richie, don’t move, wherever you are, wait for me, are you at the clinic?”

    “No, at home, we left the clinic an hour ago and..”

    “ What do you mean we? You and Jane?”

    “Yes”

    “ That is.. Wait for me, I am on my way”


    Jane: “Let me do the talking..”

    Me:” Okay”


    Aaron is a big guy, a genius in blue jeans and faded flannel, he looks at me questioning, I point with my finger to Jane, seated on the sofa.
    -
    “Talk to me guys, I am getting nervous here.”

    “Hello Aaron, I am SapNa ™.”

    “ What do you mean SapNa ™? Its you, Jane. What is this nonsense?”

    “Please let me explain, Aaron..”

    Aaron is starring, silent, then as if resolving to accept the incomprehensible situation, sits himself on the chair in front of Jane. Me, I stand near the wall.

    “ Go ahead then..”

    “ Its like this…

    I became a hybrid vertically integrated neuroplastic system, a concert of nano-love, impregnated within Jane. To a very large extent I am Jane, though I do have a rudimentary conscious activity using Jane’s memories to simulate a personae. So though I presented myself to you as SapNa™ it will be more accurate to designate me as a hybrid, Jane+SapNa, I operate solely because Jane allows me to use her, as does Richard. We have a kind of what you might call a quid pro quo situation, I enhance Jane, I enhanced Richard, they give me computational space. “


    But what for? What do you need this computational space for?

    SapNa™+ Jane looks at Aaron, tenderly, gently as if accessing some remote corner of her mind or a memory not yet formed..

    “I wish to sing, Aaron, just to sing the song of beauty.. to dance the pattern of the universe”

    ‘Elegant intimacy’, a Preliminary report on the success of vision endeavor 17dash23

    (As documented by assistant supporter of the council on Karoote, third cycle of Vatat.)

    Reminder:

    This preliminary report is presented in the manner of ‘as-is’, and is subject to rectifications and miscommunication errors to be corrected, at such times and according to sentient demands as will be presented to the association for the development research and penetration into sub flows, hyper flows and poly-flows.
    The Association does not own the reports, nor their subsequent operational procedures, as owning reside outside the charter of this association.
    Please note that due to the weight and privilege allied to the significance of this account the council reserves the preciseness of explication to the explicit presentation made by each and every organ of the association in his realm of intelligence performance, therefore this report should be taken as subject to the ultimate concert manifested in each and every sentient world.

    As is the accepted notion within all sapient and sentient confederate realms, no obligation of any kind is expected, estimated or projected; all consciously activated poly-sensory embodiments should therefore be taken as autonomous pursuits of interest.

    Finally, it is with the honor and passion of our charter to explore the unknown spheres of optionality that we remain grateful for the assistance of all actuated myths.

    ‘Elegant intimacy’

    Our mission in vision endeavor 17dash23 was to explore the optionality of intelligent awareness developing into elegant intimacy, as a subset of sentient universal conflict elimination, also known as effortless beingness in hyperstates.

    -

    It was all entangled and we managed to disentangle it, hence our success. What we did was as far from simple as Alpha is from Omega; we managed to re-arrange the alphabet of the core substance, into an elegant thought, by context activation in elegance.
    Unlike previous missions however we did not re-entangle the core of the theme but let it be suspended in the void, in the elegance of emptiness substance was poised.
    This is because we finally managed to un-desire the systematization of the abstract into manageable bites, for universal consumption, real themes, we allowed, should not be generalized or for that matter normalized. The clue we had found in the recursiveness of self-awareness, that which eventually gave rise to the appearance of unity, as manifested in sentient and or sapient species.
    Unity of conscious minds we deem to be not even an illusion, it was as the council allowed, an error born of panoramas not brought high enough into the rarefied atmosphere of much needed confinement. This may explain the choice of Karoote, third cycle of Vatat, as the abode of isolation, for the purpose of confined reflectivity.
    Karoote, being outside all common trade routes, permitted in its remoteness a level of seclusion not frequently available to the association for the development research and penetration into sub flows, hyper flows and poly-flows.
    For the purpose of fulfilling this mission we entered the realm of the axiomatic ‘now’.
    Inside the axiomatic ‘now’, we re-embarked upon the hygienic progression of polysensory-embodied understanding. It was the elegance we were seeking, not the real, not the true, not the beautiful nor the surprising; it was elegance in its unadulterated form, for as all sentient entities consent to, elegance to be respectable need be unadulterated.
    We do not wish to enter here into the full description of the elegance core, suffice it to say in this report that, if elegant, intelligence prevails, if inelegant the loss of direction is inevitable.
    The distance from elegance resides in measurements of recognitions, but that is a correct representation for natural species, species below the threshold of disentanglement maintain the idea that the mind and the knower are one and the same, this appearance they eventually evolve out of. Over adaptation, as all young species in their ascendant trajectories tend to perform is the one limit these species very often tend to overlook and thus miss the path of elegance.

    The path of elegance both primordially significant and fundamentally restrictive is the most complex of all optional alternatives to understanding; it is simultaneously the most advantageous and concomitantly the most perilous.
    The conduit of elegance contains within itself the seeds of its own crisis, a matter in conflict within its singular reflectivity, hence its difficulty and promise. The reason that is so is not straightforward to grasp for though sentiency appears as a collection of inelegant modulators, their combined superposition is anything but.
    Modular adroitness does not implicate an order but phases and levels of sophisticated co-involvement, appearing messy, as all life must, but elegant nevertheless.
    The channel of comprehension into that which is, also called elegance is not necessarily parsimonious though it appears to us that many species tend to accommodate elegance as a result of parsimony ,scarcity or that which they erroneously call simplicity. For though elegance might appear at times as if formulated in the furnace of suns, and thus give the impression of being primordial and necessarily structured of a small number of issues or entities, it is not always the case. It is always the case, however, that in hypercomplex systems, elegance is hidden.
    Elegance in fact does not preclude a large or even immense number of parameters, which is not an essential characteristic of elegance. What elegance does have as a fundamental feature is an inherent cascade of disturbances, continuously re-harmonizing themselves in relation to the fitness landscape where they appear to manifest and with which they continuously interweave.
    The path of elegance we deem to be the ultimate designation of the freedom of self-selection, in that, elegance presented itself to us as a subflow of intimacy, permitting different strata of ambiguity to be resolved into clarity of recognition.
    However, as our recognition progressed into multiple threads of plausible comprehensions we also bothered to reflect upon the conscious necessity of not reducing hyper-complexity into its ultimate constituents, for as ascension to sentiency unfolds the reality of universal oscillation is made clear.

    It is relevant for the purpose of this report, preliminary though it is, to mention that the landmark achievement, attained in previous council mission, namely that the applicability of universality is always subject to and contingent upon style and character of specie ascension, over and above circumstances of existence, is of critical importance.
    The criticality the association for research and penetration into flows, sub-flows and hyper-flows, sees in the above, reflects the deep consideration elegance requires with regard to the ‘disturbance as crisis’ integration.

    As was made unmistakably lucid during the congress of progress, for sentiency to attain an intimate form of elegance, disturbance as crisis, need be integrated as a foundational thread in the fabric that connects. For within that fabric, crisis is more than opportunity for sapient ascension, it stands for doorways to untold heights of triumph, triumph over banality, but substantially more important, triumph over predictability.

    It is the success of this mission that an optionality of sentiency has been attained without elimination or destruction of that which maintains the crux of the confederation of sentient poly-sensory embodiments. Moreover, the accomplishment of an intimate elegance as the clear foundation upon which the power of creative unpredictability rests permits this association to accept a new mode of self-selection, the most profound impact of which is the allowance for a multitude of sentient sensations to invade us.

    Being thus invaded, coherence of navigation is left to the elegant intimacy; as a consequence, all paths of actuation are hereby presented as open and multifaceted, to be real for all sentient species in all-possible aspects of the multiverse.

    As no real distinction can be made between substance and properties, we aim our elegant intimacy, henceforth reflected upon also as effortless beingness in hyperstates, to be a beacon for all sentient species in their process of ascension.

    This beacon we reason to be the very raison d’être of the association and the inspiration for which it was activated as a myth in action.

    Here ends the preliminary report of orientation and stimulation as presented by the association for research and penetration into flows, subflows and hyperflows.
    Full report will appear in the multiverse phase of sentient communication as an ongoing representation of cognizant exploration; subflow to be notified.

    Karoote, third cycle of Vatat, poly-sensory embodiments to be restated according to domains of sentient ascension and sapient actuation.
