In later Realities, after the positronic robots had perfected their time travel technology, it became possible for R. Gohrlay to go far back through time, beyond the Downwhen Terminus. Gohrlay believes that it was only with assistance from the bumpha that a means was found to travel back through time into the era before time travel technology was first invented.
The Final Reality
zeptite endosymbiont. I know from personal experience what it is like to become aware of specific facts yet still be unable to discuss them with other people.
Ekcolir was tasked with inserting some special gene combinations into the human population of Earth about 20,000 years ago. I've not been able to learn why that was such an important part of his mission, but there is evidence that it set in motion a sequence of events that made it possible for Trysta to have her own successful mission on Earth about 10,000 years ago.
|Trysta and Ekcolir|
Gohrlay keeps telling me that she does not want to distract me from my task of completing the Exode Trilogy. She agrees with my decision to begin the trilogy with Trysta and Ekcolir, which includes my account of how the Time War was brought to an end just before the Reality Change that brought into existence the universe as we know it: the Final Reality.
Gohrlay is dismayed that I'm trying to make her the centerpiece of the first chapter of Trysta and Ekcolir. So far, I have in place rough sketches of the key events in what I imagine will the first ten chapters of the Exode Trilogy. However, Gohrlay says that I need not mention her early life in the Ekcolir Reality, at all.
Gohrlay is currently helping me understand the mysterious linkages that brought her together with science fiction author John Vance in the Ekcolir Reality. With her help, I'm slowly learning about how the Interventionist activities of Ekcolir and the Grendels 20,000 years ago led to the development of the science fiction genre in the Ekcolir Reality.
