Tentative Title : SoulStone
Ancient of Days
In the EARLIEST of times...in the most ANCIENT of days...in the AGE before humans very existence…
….there was a class, a group, an assemblage of augmentation devices, of unknown origin.
Their function was to augment minds. They amplified the intellect. They increased intelligence. They were SoulStones.
In the early TIMES...in the ANCIENT of days...in the AGES before human existence,............
Pterosaurs appeared suddenly in the fossil record ...from out of nowhere. There is no clue, no hint of their prior evolution.
For one hundred and sixty million years the pterosaurs ruled the skies. One of the races of pterosaur were melded to SoulStones. The SoulStone was their third eye. They built a civilization that floated in the sky. In these earliest of times there were pterosaur cloud cities drifting in the air above Pangea and the Panthalassa world ocean.
For millions of years they were borne by the winds as the surface changed below them. Pangea became Gondwana, LaurAsia and Cong-Craton all of which later split, collided and reformed into different configurations. The oceans also changed. Panthalassa became then the Iapetus Ocean, the Paleo Asian Ocean and the Tethys Sea.
Life below on the land and in the water changed. Flowering plants appeared as did new forms of insects. Ants, butterflies, Aphids, grasshoppers and wasps arrived on the scene. Mammals began scampering across the land and two new flyers took to the air. Birds and Bats joined the Pterosaurs and Insects in flight.
The Pterosaurs oversaw them all.
In the early TIMES...in the ANCIENT of days...in the AGE before human existence.
....earth was bathed in a terrible light. It passed through the beam of a Stellar Jet and 85% of all life perished. The Dinosaurs all expired , the pterosaurs made their last flights and their cloud cities vanished. The SoulStones were EMPed into deactivation.
They went to sleep.
In the early TIMES in the ANCIENT of days ...in the AGE before human civilizations....
…...earth was again illuminated by the deadly rays of a Stellar Jet very briefly. The megafauna went extinct but few other animals died off. A small group of SoulStones were EMPed into reactivation.
In the early TIMES in the ANCIENT of days ...at various AGES during the births of the many early human civilizations.
A very few humans found SoulStones. Mythology describes them as GODS. The entire Mythological Pantheon from the Aesir to Zeus are partial and incomplete depictions of humans melded to SoulStones. The technology of the day was insufficient. The purported deities had insufficient technological capability to exploit their knowledge windfall. They were destroyed. Embryonic civilizations of mythological times, for one reason or another, perished one and all. Some were overwhelmed by barbarians. Others such as Atlantis and Mu vanished due to mysterious causes.
SoulStones were lost….again.
In the present Time, in the MODERN day ...during the birth of the Age of Information..
….a SoulStone and a human were united….
