Chapter One: Memory
From the moment she was born Kathy lived in two worlds: one, her senses; two, the larger world of memory.
Just beyond those two distinct forces, forces that were always present in her consciousness, she was aware of the living presence of all of the other human beings around her.
Her memory spoke to her in words and visions, contextualizing everything she encountered, summarizing each new experience at the speed of light, and faster. The operations of her mind could occur in no-time, it neared the transcendent.
Every smell, every touch, every sound was evocative.
The things she saw and the things she tasted drew her out of herself, and into another world.
As an infant she was often debilitated by the experience of new things. She would be stuck in the on-rush of memories, they would come on her like a flood
She was often paralyzed, drifting, floating in-between worlds.
The voices came to her unbidden, they were the voices of her ancestors and they sought to protect her, but they more than that, they were more than a reconstruction of personalities from her ancestral memory. Through her unique consciousness her memories were connected to the real presence of her ancestors, of humanity, actual people persisting in the cynergenic field of Earth.
The imprint of every person who ever lived was present in the nous-sphere. Within the Earth’s quantum field every person who had lived and died was present.
