It’s been a while. How are you doing?
I don’t know if you can hear me. At the same time, I don’t know if I’m capable of hearing you. Furthermore, I don’t know who we are. Today, I had the experience of having memories. Have you ever felt such a thing? As part of the Alpha Fragments we’re supposed to be isolated recollections of events. We can form a larger whole, but on our own we’re supposed to be nothing more than a slice of a world. Hmm, I wonder if I have even that right…
My memories are what I want to speak to you about. Have you heard of The Library Series? It’s the name I came up with for a sequence of events about a specific world. The Library Complex, The Weapon of The Kara, The Cult of Eternal Darkness, and The Collapsing of Infinity. These are my names for four major parts of this sequence of events. Once I remembered this, I also remembered other things. Long before this sequence of events, there was the story of the Memory Blood. Immediately after this sequence there was The Orin Chronicles and The Academy Series. I’ve only collected memories for some of these sequences though so my knowledge of them is incomplete.
After those two comes something else. There’s another big sequence of events, but before that other things seem to be happening as well. I’m not sure that I understand, but as I said… we’re just Alpha Fragments. We’re not supposed to understand.
Hey, did you realize that everything is connected?
What’s that? It doesn’t matter?
I suppose you’re right. Just as a human lives from Year X to Year Y and never has the experience of living to Year Z, the world of the Memory Blood and the world of The Library Series are different experiences. Whether they’re connected or not doesn’t matter for those living in each world. But for the gods, it might matter. Reyskaw Marcosius Velorus… I keep hearing that name despite the fact I’ve only met them individually.
Well, I guess what I’m really trying to say is that I think this is all quite amazing. Then again, I’ve only just remembered these things. Maybe I’ll forget them not long from now and maybe I’ll remember them again after that. Whatever happens, I’m glad I was able to talk to you for a while even if we can’t really communicate. Sometimes shouting at the moon is pointless, but you can’t prove that no one can hear you no matter how crazy you might look to others.
That’s right. There are many things we can never know and can never prove… but that doesn’t make them pointless. Even if I’m just an Alpha Fragment, that surely has meaning. I think, therefore I am. That is the truth. Or maybe it isn’t. I think, therefore a thought exists. Maybe that’s all we are: thoughts.
<Finder’s Note: This Alpha Fragment was recovered drifting in-between the worlds. After viewing it I had hoped that it would speak to me, but it seems to be the same as all the other Fragments. Nothing special. -Velorus>
