      What a night....

      Ok... there was ALOT... I didn’t write or record any of this down, it’s now nearly 12 hours later and I have remembered nearly all of it, I know I am probably missing some though... positive regarding some parts...

      So this is long.

      Shafted light

      Consciousness came I was standing outside, looking out towards one of my neighbors yard, it was a little different, more open, less trees, the field that’s a few houses down actually came through their yard and was next to mine, The small road that separates the field from mine and my neighbors yard was gone. They were cutting down a tree... I don’t know why... it was beautiful, huge... Oak. but It was bare, I noticed then that it looked like silver light was flowing through it, I could see it on the ground, then I realized the very air was flowing with shafts of light, the clouds must have been very dense but at the same time with many holes in it, the shafts of light were numerous and many. I looked up at the sky it was incredible, one of the most profound serene and awe inspiring things I have ever seen, I love the sky and clouds, this was just... amazing, I closed my eyes, I could feel the warmth of the shafts of light as they passed over me and the next one came, I opened my eyes again but the clouds and sky were now pixilated, like it was from an old video game.. I thought well that sucks, it looked allot better a moment ago... Then I heard someone yelling (excuse the cussing as this is what I heard)... What the fuck is going on?! Why the hell does everything look like it’s from a video game! I looked over a few houses and saw a man standing on his front doorstep, like he had just woken up and walked out the door, he was in his underwear, he looked down at himself "Why the fuck do I look like a goddamned cartoon?! What the hell is going, he grabbed his crotch "where the hells my dick!" I found this slightly amusing but realized that it would suck to be in his shoes. I walked into my neighbors house, it was actually someone who I worked with, he and his new wife showed off their new baby, he looked to be about 1 but… he spoke perfect English “how are you today, lets watch a movie” We sat down and watched something that reminded me of mononoke hime, the myst series, and something else… I remember looking own at a spiral staircase and there were glowing letters on each step, I don’t know what they said. The dream faded and I woke up.

      The artist.

      This was a long one... I don’t remember it all; I remember being with a god friend, one I don’t have here in this world, we knew each other for a long time though on that side. We went to this woman’s house, and inside I found this tall... hmm it looked like a printer’s plate storage cabinet, although free standing and incredibly ornate.
      I opened one of the drawers and there was a painting inside, it was painted using that thick paint and a knife and brushes or however that style is painted, kinda like that guy on TV bob something or other, with all his happy trees. This was of a market scene, the detail even though abstract... was... hmm... ok well it was painted so well and perfect and conveyed the emotion and exact nuances of the situation that it was like a window into what was painted, the people moved and spoke, like it was a video recording that actually had life to it and depth... me and my friend just stared at it, it was simply amazing, I noticed my friend vanished but reappeared a few seconds later, I was too enthralled to say WTF?! There was at some point a document we came across, it was in pencil, was written in plain printed English but very neat, it also had drawings of flowers mushrooms, and other designs throughout the text, there was a footer, that contained an address, 200… something… sigh and it was in Massachusetts
      I just cannot express with words the magnitude of this artists work...
      We went through the entire cabinet, staring at these paintings, learning their stories.

      Try walking in these shoes...

      Last night I had the extreme pleasure in driving one of the most absurd mechanical transportation devices ever conceived

      So... IT was about the size of a car, in the front their was a seat, two levers on each side and a pair of pedals set down and in front, it was set up like a paddle boat. It stood about 6 feet high and you had to climb a ladder to get to the seat, most of the undercarriage was covered by a metal skirt underneath the skirt was two GIANT shoes! Ok (lol I’m laughing just remembering this thing) So when you pedaled the feet went up and down, it was bouncy, and loud, they were heavy, so it smashed when it hit the ground, if you pushed the lever forwards or back it would make the shoe step forwards or backwards corresponding to how much you pushed the lever and which side it was one, I guess it would be the same set up for a tank... kinda... heheehhe So driving this thing around was so much fun. Me and that same friend was there... we took turns driving it around, we were in suburbia, it was hysterical, the faster you pedaled the faster the feet went, I would tear ass down the road, cut the levers and return them to neutral and slide around corners it was a friking BLAST hehe so we had our fun with that... we were with a family now, we were going to dinner and then my friend vanished again....quietly just gone. Where he was standing was a tube... I knew what it was, it was the conduit that connected him to the place we were in, everyone else around me was like what the hell are you doing, like the moment he vanished he no longer ever existed to them, I was distraught, confused, I looked through the tube blew through it, thinking perhaps it was clogged, stretched it, I just didn’t know what to do, I realized, he’s a dreamer like me, he woke up.
      So did I.

      Space academy

      First year sucked, didn’t get to do a damned thing initiation (hazing was bad) sucked. all classes, I went to the training pod that I preferred, no one seemed to use it, it was way off the beaten path, (all of this took place in a space station... a BIG one...well I opened the door, walked the short path to the chair, its back faces the door when you first enter, someone was in here... I could feel it... I walked to the chair, and a woman got up from it, she wasn’t anything remarkable to look at good looking yes but not like some insane dream beauty, she had high rank, she looked me up and down and said "Your name is Serinanth, is it not?" I nodded "Your name is very old, and has power to it, how did you come to it?" Memory flooded me; I didn’t know what to tell her, should I lie? Tell her it was passed down my family? Tell her it was a gift? Or tell her that I was the only Serinanth there had ever been, that the history was attached to me as well. I stuttered, and stammered, she said "I see", grinned and then left the room...What the hell just happened? Ooook I went on with my training program. ----Fast-forward----- I realized I was oriental too...that’s different, not uncomfortable though, felt somewhat familiar. Second year hazing was amusing to say the least, I will keep it to myself though =P I finally got to fly the fighters were incredibly responsive, not designed for atmospheric flight, for space only I don’t remember even thinking about a planet to call home... ---training mission--- It attacked, our foe, I still don’t know what it was... or is, it looked like... hmm looked like a 3D molecular model, It was made up of Bars of different colors,... (If any of you are a trekkie, think the Q's net. But the bars were much longer, it was not a net, the thing spanned hundreds of miles, it was very long, and only had one layer, it was more 2 dimensional. Some of the other trainees just vanished... I did what I was told not to do, armed my weapons, and broke every interlock I knew how to do it... (I was good =) I sped at the .. object.. for some reason, I fired at 12 different points, actually hit several bars twice, they just seemed to get knocked out of position and moved around. Then it happened, the moment I stopped firing, the space around me light up like I was in a golden river flecked with platinum, and the object began to rearrange itself, The electrical system in my ship went nuts my HUD flickered and fizzled and came back on and it said, Thank you, you have broken me free of that linear prison, and now I am circular and complete, It continued re arranging itself and I was blinded with a white light and woke up.

      Swimmingly

      Ahh I love this form, Tursiops truncatus, a bottle nosed dolphin, I was swimming with a good friend, I felt him before I saw him, (that’s how it is underwater) I would try to explain what echolocation is like but… I can’t =) the best I can do is it’s like an overlay on my vision, like a computer enhancement. He was an Orca, a killer whale, normally an Orca would find a bottlenose dolphin a tasty snack… seals are around the same size but even here (this reality), the two species have been found swimming together on occasion in the wild, cousins, and both are aware of it. He wanted to dive down, there were some tuna below and he was hungry, sure why not. I could dive as deep; I wouldn’t be eating any tuna though. We surfaced and then dove, its an odd thing… all the light goes away, it becomes an inky darkness, I could faintly see my friend few yards away, I could feel him echo locating on my skin I remained silent… I don’t know why, I stopped sounding, let the darkness envelop me, frightening, but freeing, I was flying above the waves in the space between stars. I heard him say he was finished; I never really cared for his eating habits… best not to watch anyways… We surfaced and headed towards shore, there were some humans in the shallows, I hopped out of the water to get a look at them, a couple of them crowded near some rocks and some kind of building behind those rocks. “I want to go check it out” Seri, your going to get yourself stuck, you’ve done it before, your lucky the tide came in” “nahh I wont get stuck, I want to see what the people are doing, they might need help” “your weird” … so I went in closer to shore, my friend stayed out in the deeper water, I could still hear him, “I cant come and help you if you need it!” and what did I do folks?.... Got myself stuck… good too… I wanted to see what all the fuss was about these rocks and managed to get stuck on a sandbar…Its like breathing with nearly a thousand pounds on your chest…My lungs are strong but it’s not something you could do all day… The people saw me, I panicked for a moment, but calmed down, a few came over and they helped me back into the deeper water, their hands feel funny on my skin. I propped my self out of the water again, “Thank you” (I must note here, that the sound of a dolphin speaking Is incredibly amusing and at the same time ear shatteringly cute, I giggled at the sound of my voice as I hadn’t actually heard it like this before) The man that I looked at when I spoke jumped back and fell in the water “wholly shit it fucking talked” The other came near ,they looked inquisitive but a little scared, its hard to tell with people. “Yes I can talk, you can talk, what’s the big deal?” a woman answered “We didn’t know dolphins could talk, this... is the first time we have ever heard it…” “Oh… well what’s the big deal about these rocks?” … I am realizing… that my mind when in dolphin form resembles that of an intelligent ferret, too smart for its own good, endlessly curious and naive.” Hmm wait no that just me in general… well anyways. “One of the men said that the ocean port to their laboratory had been blocked by the rocks and boulders, it looked like there was a tube behind it that went into the rock face… I made a low frequency sounding, this is a little different than normal echolocation… low frequency passes through most objects, although it does send back some echo, depending on how much where .. Well it’s complicated, but I could basically see where all the rocks were, see how dense they were, and more importantly which ones could be removed easily. Another person said “Did you feel that?” “He must have done a sounding on the rocks” another replied. I told them which rocks to go after first, and soon we had the pile moved the bigger ones required everyone to push, there was an underwater cliff about 20 feet deep on one side of the pile, so it made everything much easier, The tube was halfway in the water, it was used to move equipment easily into the water, I said I wanted to see, they let me inside, there was a conveyor belt kind of thing, it was very smooth, they said their was a tank inside if I didn’t mind being out of the water for a few minutes and I could see the inside of their lab, of course I wanted to see… I could just hear my friend yelling at me later telling me how dumb I was to go inside, these people seemed nice enough. I slid up on the conveyor and it started to bring me inside, it was kind of fun actually. But it started taking too long, and the people disappeared, and only spoke to me on a some kind disembodied voice (intercom duh) I started to panic it sounded like something had gone wrong and the conveyor stopped working, I got scared and woke up.

      There was one last dream… I was in my dragon form. When I woke up, it was as if the memories were being purged out of my mind, I could feel what I had once known being sucked out of my head, not like simply forgetting something… It felt like they were taken.

      well I thought I used to role play... but I realised something the character always ends up as me... Just me in a different situaltion, I put myself in that situation and react as I would if It happened to me. So I cant roleplay for shit, I just end up as me... hehe sure I will put a backround story to that specific character.

      For instance...
      Final Fantasy XI

      Still Serinanth, but how the hell did I get here... (and finaly I can be the class I am supposed to be! a Samurai Red Mage! I got a long ways to go though hehe


      Just another dream


      through meditaion we heal


      Damn! I'm a sexy beast

      As for life action yes, I was a part of the pirate brotherhood of Long island, =) that was fun as hell =) and I played AD&D with friends.. but they all moved away =( They used to be in salem MA ohh that was fun we had a game near haloween and we went out to get some food, walked the streets to go to an awsome hero shop, shonuff all the freaks were out, and one costumed in black with a cowl and cythe started following my 6'3" ass so I turned and hissed at him.... the hissing alone didnt do it, I have those movie grade fangs that you can put in so it looked like they were my real teeth... lol he backed off real quick, my friend was like "yo ev, you got that?" "yep all taken care of" Though I despise the undead and tell those wackos that think they are vampires that there are much older and powerfull beings in the universe, and many of them despise the abomination that is the undead.... that usualy makes them go away. =)

      This way late in the morning its Seri's bedtime rant brought to you by "Beggin strips" dog snacks IT"S BACON!!!!!!

      i was thinkin more on the line of rolling dice, deciding stats for your "character" and playing the game with a GAME MASTER, who decides the story line...

      sorry for the confusion

      ...consequence, you'll see, will be stranger than a gang of drunken mimes[/b]

      sure you have a game master that decides the current story...
      But...

      Each individual character has their own unique story, I think that is more important than the rolls of the dice. The story you create gives the character a past, its what leads up to those die rolls, how did your character get those stats?

      I think this is true of us in real life... I had another weird dream last night and I learned this, each one of us has a story to tell that is our life, and this is the culmination of who we are.

      My mother was there she showed me a book and asked me if I rememberd it, it was old, its binding had been broken, I did remember it, the book was given to me a very long time ago, before I could read or write, and this is what I had done to it.
      she said "this is what you did with it, it was before you discovered the (art/magic/talent) the word she used meant all of those.
      We spoke of the "now", how it was important how it the only thing that is real, but she argued, "this book is real, and it is part of the now, but it is also tied to the past. Were it not for that past, you would not be standing here, and you would not be who you are today."

      "This is your story, its not nearly finished though"

      I woke up when I touched it, I do not think I am ready for it yet.
      I want to add that it was my entire past, not just Evan's.

      Mercubio

      WOOOOT I love mmorpg, even though i know it's impossible

      EQ anybody???

      <-------- Mercubio
      i play a 45 cleric on Ever Quest, Sullon Zek, hcr pvp server!!!
      i hunt n00bs 4 fun, i love pvp love it LOOOOVE it[/b]

      I also play Achaea as Juliao or Tze
      I also play Imperian as Joshu or Kain

      I completely agree. The biggest realization I ever had was that I control my own destiny. It sounds silly, but those of you who laugh prolly haven't REALLY realized it yet. Karma is massive and real on an intricate level. We all have a chance to beat the game. We all have a chance to win and you never know who it takes to free mankind from this eternal hell of pain and suffering we experience now. What does not kill us gives us massive EXP.

      I fully intend to try and beat this game we call reality. I see through it now. I have to search the dungeons. I have to help save the earth from, well, us. I will beat the game. I'm helping to form a group right now cause, well...a bard is only as good as his group.

      This game called life is perfect. Reicarnation is restart. Death is the illusion. We will beat the game. We will. We know how. RPGs have taught me more then college. oh yeah, and 4 reference

      Final Fantasy VII is maybe the most important piece of wisdom available.
      It is the story of our last orgin, the Kabala and the 10 Sephiroth.

      The game can be beaten. Life can be overcome. the demigods can be challenged. Someone will prevail. Just pray that it's the right hero.

      We will beat the game.

      Actually yeah I did learn alot about everything from videogames, not just to collect as many gold coins as I can or that mushrooms make your head seem bigger
      Then came the massive online games, muds mush's etc
      Then Everquest was the one that hooked me, Lost soul and I used to play.. oh.. umm like 20/7? 4 hours is plenty for sleep school and werk =) well we played alot. hehe on Rodcet knife, I no longer play neither does she, It lost something i remember in the beginning, it was so much fun, so many roleplayed then it just terned into a powerleveling search for phat lewt.
      I am likeing FFXI blue check it out, its nice,
      I just finished reading a book on the kabblah or however its spelled. VERY interesting stuff...

      I will agree with you about this life being a game, =) I see it as a test, but I turned it into just what you said, a game, no more like a quest The goals are still foggy for me, but heck im still early on in the game, my story needs to be written still..

      As for FF in general... (just got a chill) I think that everyone can learn from those stories, they have helped sculpt me into the person that I am, allowing you to partake in the story in the game genra, makes... It makes it stick to you...And the topics... Life death, rebirth, Gaia, Soulmates, Dreams, Spirit, friendship... All of them things we need to learn about.
      IMPORTANT things we need to learn about. =)

      hehe if you ever need Red Mage Samurai look me up =) I will be in the Tavern next to the "times are tough" guy
      Oh, I know a damned fine cleric too is she would join us, (whats a meat wall without his cleric =).... usualy dead meat hehe specially a dumb one like me.
