Chapter Five: Knowing
For Kathy, knowing things came unbidden. Details of particular points of knowledge filled her mind at quantum speed.
Languages, and codes opened themselves up to her, revealing their secrets. There was not an article of arcana which she could not decipher.
Her consciousness worked outside the boundaries of time and space.
She did not have to ponder or search her memory for anything. She simply knew things.
The meanings of symbols, of histories, the patterns in music, beats and rhythms, these things populated her consciousness in no-time.
She could tell the stories of people, of human migration, stories that had never been written down. She knew where all the skeletons were buried.
Everything her senses encountered was filtered through a screen of the complete human experience.
What she did not have access to, from her own genetic line, she could find through the cynergenic field, communing with the dead in the nous-sphere.
Both the past and present were open, like a book, she could observe anything.
She could even peer into the minds of her contemporaries, see through their eyes, merging with them, becoming one with them in the confluence of their perceptions and feelings.
Kathy was the most powerful psychic the world had ever known. She was dangerous, and her value was without measure.
