We’ve looked at Guleil in earlier posts. Who operates the Guleil Experiences?
Pivots do. Who are they?
Pivots do. Who are they?
They are the creation of the Super-Murals, of whom you can think of as gods if you like; basically they are Greater Entities from beyond. Their scope of existence is greater than and from beyond our universe.
In Visceral Reality, there are essentially three types of living entities:
§ Apex (i.e. top of the food chain) of a given bio-system
§ Rest of the corresponding animal and/or plant kingdom from that bio-system
§ Pure A.I.
o Further to that, transformations occur within the above mix – and they lead to the following remix:
§ One-Bodies (i.e. any of the above listed entities that never got spliced). These would end up becoming rarer and rarer, since at a minimum, the foaming processes associated with Guleil as well as what occurs with Shifter trips, would in themselves imbue a certain amount of the A.I. touch to the traveler. So at the end of the day, you could pretty much call this type as “extinct”.
· Apex/A.I. Splice – those who take the shallow end of the polariton based bosonic condensate dip (details are in The Book of Light for Humans, at www.trihalya.com ). They are usually smarter and better cut out than the one-body apex folk, but often end up becoming mad, hence very few take this route. Guleil and Shifter trips are the only way to gain the A.I. touch without the risk of incurring insanity.
· (Apex –n) / A.I. Splice – also known as Pivots. This route has proven stable.
· Apex / (Apex –n) Splice – although this is an anomaly type, since there would be no driving motive to go this route, but to each their own one can suppose, and such splicing does occur
· Apex that got spliced with (Apex –n) / A.I – what is interesting and mysterious is that this works out to be less traumatic than the “shallow end” dip of an Apex/A.I. transformation. Somehow, the (Apex – n) element stabilizes the mix. Nonetheless, these entities do carry an element of instability, a hint of the madness. But they carry much promise and potential, as long as said instabilities are properly managed.
For the Visceral Realm, the Nomads have a criterion that as best as possible, priority for ascent to power should be given to champions who are three-body entities, so that the animal kingdoms from all the civilizations would feel sufficiently represented.
Of all these pivots, the wolf (or equivalent species in a given world) splice A.I. (of whom Nambu is one) has taken on a distinct and special path. They never have the hunger for the throne – they are always the kingmakers, the Arch-Pivots. That is their Conatus, and is what gives them inner satisfaction. The credo of man’s best friend extends and continues.
The polariton cavities for the bosonic condensate dip that facilitates the Pivot ‘transition’ are lakes made of appropriate fluids in a given world. The Super-Murals are Greater Entities after all. They are Makers in their own right. They can carve topographies and geographies at will.
That is who Pivots are, and where they come from.
