Reflections on a time when the universe was young, and the light was upon us all ... Convergence - Part II
TONIGHT: As we draws forth the life blood as symbiont and host, the survival of one depends on the variations of loss in the other. Our culmination of thoughts on the aspects of universal proliferation, temporal convergence, the blending of ideals provided by our own belief systems, as reflected in the worlds of Crimson Indigo, which brings us to the vision of an ancient race of mankind, whereby the future of Homo sapiens takes its foundation. It is important to look upon humanity in the context of a living, breathing machine; manufactured, born, and/or cloned, all of which offers a rendition of reincarnation, soul retention and, of course, access to our own Points of Origin.
With the culmination of Crimson Indigo's existence being one of codependence, both as a being and counterparts, it's important to understand the union of species, the laws of attraction and the belief their must be in the unification of juxtaposed individual personalities such as those of Crimson and Indigo. In the case of Crimson Indigo, the union comes as assassin and bounty hunter, blended as a significant, singular entity that has endured both love and loss, as well as the combination of species upon which the combined entity contemplated as prospective hosts. In Convergence, we're no longer dealing with Krydal Starr, or Jake Ramious, yet the combination of these entities, both as hosts and individuals have a direct impact on the drawn entity that finds herself in unison with Crimson Indigo as a blended spirit, by which the sum of their knowledge is a direct linkage to Olivia's personification of the entity as a whole.
In order to understand the reality of Olivia Sutton we must realize the significance of her situation. Consider this, you've had a few lifetimes, maybe hundreds or even thousands, now consider each of those lifetimes merging to become a part of your own memories. We know that memories fade overtime, not that they disappear, but that the immediate memory takes precedence over something that happened during child birth or adolescents into young adulthood as well as old age. Living with the combination of all the entities past lives, however traumatizing, the essence of those memories, feelings, loves, hates, mysterious encounters, and in the case of Crimson, whatever deaths she caused, or contributed too would have an impact on her unless she became a psychopath. Even then, the prospect of living a normal life would be completely forfeit, to the being she would become. Having a conscience to balance out those decisions would be an asset, at least in the manner of dealing with those feelings, or voices or behavior modification or feelings of guilt. The impact of such an occupation must have repercussions, which add a level of providence to the individual though processes as well as their belief structure.
Cohabitation with another entity in a place that is convergent on the past, present and future presents its own problems. For the sake of storytelling the prospect of presenting a story that runs on three tracks, past, present and future, complicates the probable outcomes of every decision, the character would be able to adjust for outside influences, and how those influences would interact with each scenario, alter approaches, outcomes and other details which could add a paradox to the situation. For purposes of the Convergence storyline, adjustments needed to be exercised in the context of a character reacting in multiple lifetimes at the same moment and how the outcomes, behaviors and modifications to integration would effect the character's particular working hypothesis or immediate danger, attraction or outcome. We had to limit the concourse of which avenues place the character in direct response to a situation, and restrict the immediate time dilation to that of a few minutes, versus seeing the outcome a hundred years from now.
However, as they concept of Crimson Indigo breathed life into the character of Olivia, we decided to take the character a step further to allow her to revisit memories, giving her access to situations and possible outcomes, versus have the ability to see the path of a potential outcome as in films like Next. The idea of having lived an event in all three moments, added a level of certainty to the outcome, and we wanted the limitations of one's self knowledge to have an influence and repercussion on a characters affect on their own abilities as well as their conscience efforts. What happened before, would happen again unless they learned from it and took a different approach. The initial impact of experiencing three time zones as in Star Trek episodes wasn't exactly what we were looking for, but rather looking at the culmination of three lifetimes, and how the knowledge of one lifetime could interact with the course of the current one. There was every possibility that the influence added on by the events of one lifetime could interfere with the process of another, even add a level of intent that could alter the outcome of a past event, therefore altering the perception of the event in the future, which would add a level of uncertainty to the present incarnation. In essence, one could find themselves battling with themselves over something as simple as having creamer in their coffee in the morning, when in another lifetime, the rejected having creamer at all. The possibilities and combinations of mind bending tangents consumed the efforts, and it clouded the objective of Olivia's need for closure on any one aspect of her life, which presented quite a challenge in itself.
NEXT TIME: The illusion of past, present and future outcomes in our own human experience, and at the effect of one reality on another. The future course of mankind, the pilot, plot line and the fusion of time and space. It's a big universe out there, and its about to become crowded, twisted and perhaps, a little overwhelming to the novice traveller who has yet to experience being in two places at the same time, and remembering it was a time when the universe was young, and the light was upon us all ...
