With the help of first Ivory and now, currently, her clone, Anney, I've learned how to retain memories from those times when my conscious mind is "in control of" my replicoid. It appears that my replicoid must "invite me" to "take control", and so far, I can only use the Bimanoid Interface while I'm in a particular stage of sleep.
Special thanks to Miranda Hedman (www.mirish.deviantart.com) for the DeviantArt stock photograph "Black Cat 2 - stock" that I used the image shown to the right.
In effect, if "someone" such as Anney's replicoid wants to tell me something, then I can be "summoned" into the virtual reality of the Hierion Domain. Most recently, I was "invited" to the Domain so that Anney could share with me her paranoid views on the Overseer-Interventionist dynamic that she believes has shaped the history of human civilization on Earth.

To give you a sense of Anney's power to control "her world", I've tried to depict her ability to use nanites to not only modify her own physical appearance but bring into existence the components and elements of her workshop. Shown to the left: Anney assembling her "pet" Ajax from nanorobotic components.
Ajax is one of the more alarming feature's of Anney's workshop. "He" acts like a human and speaks. According to Anney, Ajax originated as a "duplicated replicoid" and is a kind of sounding board for Anney while she is trying to "write up" her reports.

A visit to Anney's World involves me "awakening" inside the body of my own replicoid. Anney then confirms that I have "arrived" and she sends a swarm of infites into me. Those infites trigger a kind of virtual reality experience, often allowing me to become aware of something that Anney has been studying, either in the Hierion Domain or in the Sedronic Domain.
Usually Anney herself is present in the physical form that she claims is her "natural form", the form that her biological body would have had if she had been allowed to fully express all of her Preland genes. Of course, she has complete control over the shape of her replicoid and sometimes she appears to me in alternate forms.

"place" within the Hierion Domain.
Like her sister Angela, Anney grew up using the Bimanoid Interface and she is at home in the Hierion Domain. For me, my experiences of the Domain are disorienting and difficult to remember once my conscious mind returns to the Hadronic Domain.
The Resh^Ki Replicoid
My most recent "visit" with Anney in the Hierion Domain came to an abrupt end when Resk^Ki showed up. I woke up back here in the Hadronic Domain thinking that Resk^Ki wanted to tell me something, something that Anney did not want me to hear.
Anney has previously used the term "exphile", but now she finally tried to explain to me what it means. Millions of years ago, the basic Sedronite chromosome set was engineered by the pek. According to Anney, the pek were the original "X-philes". They designed a Sedronite chromosome set for which there were two sex chromosomes: X and H.
|The Sedronite HXX chromosome set.|
Sedronite hermaphrodites usually give birth to either hermaphroditic or female (XX) offspring. Female Sedronites can give birth to either hermaphrodites or female children. Quite rarely, an XY male can be born, but they are sickly due to only having one X chromosome.
|"Family Tree" of the Sedronites.|
At the same time, the "dissident Nereids" (apparently they lived on a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy) were altering their own genes and the resulting life forms were known as the O'typ. The O'typ had three "genders", HX hermaphrodites, HY males and XX females. The XY chromosome complement did not produce viable offspring, but resulted in the growth of an endosymbiotic "soul brother" inside of its "mother".
|Preland: almost human.|
According to Anney, the pek were horrified by the entire Nereid intervention on Earth that resulted in the human species. Apparently there has long been an effort by the pek to find a way of replacing we humans with some other primate species such as the Prelands.
I've heard this tale of "Preland replacement" of humans from several sources, but I'm skeptical about its validity. As described in my previous blog post, I've begun to have a small amount of luck recovering memories from the time when Resk^Ki was still good friends with Ivory in the Hierion Domain. It has always been the contention of Resk^Ki that the Prelands were created as part of the Trysta-Grean Pact. Apparently there are other "unpopular" ideas that Resk^Ki would like to share with me, but Anney (and, maddeningly, also my replicoid) is now blocking my access to Resk^Ki.
