The Forces at Work in the Growing World Conflict
The core mission of the Tethyans is to oversee the future of our planet and humankind. And, of course, this mission will inevitably involve considerable conflict sooner or later. And in that conflict fundamental forces will be involved. For millennia the Tethyans had been at peace or at least not central to conflict. The Progenitors in the hidden cities tended to their preparations and the Primal families built their own futures on land and contributed to stewardship.
Among the Tethyan women were some with specific abilities which were essential. There were the Illuminata or women who were of the sun and fair of complexion. They brought clarity and illumination of all kinds including understanding and the essences of stewardship.
And then there were the women of the Mysterium who were of the moon. They were of darker complexion and conveyed the mystery that is woman and the associated passions and creativity.
In defense, the women of the Mysterium could employ fundamental power. Their passions and sexual nature meant they could overwhelm a man and stir him to extraordinary involvement or self destruction. In love and special bonding endeavors they formed truly enlightening and elevating passionate bonds with the right men. It is this primordial power which many men fear most even while some relish the mystery and delight. Among these women were leaders who formed an elite Mysterium and some Illuminata as well.
A Very Different Force
There was another fundamental force of the universe present among these beings. It was called the Maelstrom which was closer to the men and was often associated with predation and destruction. As a universal force it is most clearly seen in the universe among the stars. There are cataclysms as galaxies collide and giant stars explode. But in this force there is also a creative component of a very different kind. When galaxies collide new solar systems and planets are created. When a star explodes new heavier elements are created and this stardust brings new wonders to the universe as in the stardust of which humankind is made. And so the Maelstrom is both destructive and wondrously creative. Together these universal forces of the Mysterium and the Maelstrom play out in humankind.
A Final Confrontation for the Future of Earth
And so with these people and forces in place Gaia watched as a final confrontation built. It was not yet apparent to all the people who would be involved or central. But the inevitability of the conflict would become clear. While this trilogy is fictional it may speak truths about a similar conflict in our “reality”. We can wonder at the resolution and outcome. And it would appear that it is impending.
The women of the Andromeda each brought very different talents and possibilities. Among them was Nicole. She was a Haitian mulatto woman who learned the depths of Vodun (which we often call Voo-Doo). Through Vodun and her contact with the spirit world she gained extraordinary powers. At her finger tips were the arts of healing and death. It seemed that her future had to be linked to Andromeda and she found added depth as she joined the reality of Nordic mythology. It may have been that it was ordained she would enter the spirit world. And in that world is found hidden wonders.
Do you have any of these forces at your command?
