Mission Log #0006 // Systemic Symptoms

Strangely enough, either the Internet is out, or #Electricity as a whole, these days.

Battling allergy, I stay in mostly, and inside all I can do is #Work related, mostly virtual – apart from creating plans for refurbishing the interior here. An update is desperately needed.

The house, at the center of the #MissionSite, or in other words, my home, is an old, single story “peasants house”, its walls made of clay, which means air conditioning is not required, and once it is fully heated up, it’s easy to maintain a pleasant temperature inside it, even in the harshest winter conditions.

#MissionSite is located along the border of two Eastern European countries, so the dominant #Climate here is called Continental, slowly drifting towards the Mediterranean. Precipitation is expected to become more sporadic, with the occasional torrential rains. Temperatures are likely to move towards the extremes with the averages going slightly upwards in the next decades.

But talking about the interior, well, it is burdened by the memory of the socialist past of this country, with quite low quality and straight up ugly pieces of furniture. Upgrading the interior living quarters is not exactly #Mission-related, but certainly would make progressing through the #Quests easier, working and living in an environment that identifies better with us. Design process is already underway.

So, going back to the #Mission, important steps have been made towards participating in a meeting, which takes place at the weekend. This will be an important #Networking event, where I will have the opportunity to strengthen ties with other individuals on a similar #Mission, working on their own respective #MissionSites all over the country, but mostly in the outskirts of the #City, just as I do.

Mission Log #0005 // Reorientational Calibrations

So, I’m well aware of the fact, that there’s hardly a point in reading, let alone writing a #MissionLog, if the #Mission itself is unclear.

But I just can’t delve into that yet, for several reasons.

First, the #Mission is more like a concept, rather than a unique goal, which could be easily identified. I think I could describe it in a single sentence, but only through utilizing a largely reductionist approach. And more often than not, when we leave stuff out, and settle for a sketchy result, we end up with something that lacks any particular meaning at all.

Second, the #Ascent is a rough and complex process. I acquire more and more data on a daily basis by accessing newly downloaded background information about my character – memories, thoughts, plans and dreams. This is as much an ‘on-the-fly’ operation for me as it is for you guys.

Third, I would have a hard time if I had wanted to identify a clear starting point in this story. I’m afraid, you all have to accept, that this is an in medias res endeavour.

I don’t even understand why writing this #MissionLog is necessary – all I know that it is required: it’s part of the #Mission.

The #Mission is a loose, comprehensive set of goals, which is broken down into certain tasks, small phases in a long, possibly epic workflow, and all-encompassing adventure I signed up for, when I have taken control of this character. I think that, for ease of use, I will refer to any of them, these Mission-segments, as a #Quest.

So, what have we done today?

I’ve been investigating. Tracking down sources to an apple tree-sapling, which could thrive in the #Garden, which means we are looking for a local variety. I contacted experts, and I will give it a go locally as well, however: this is an area what we can consider as lost local knowledge (I might need to come up with a suitable tag for that).

Varieties of fruit species, that have been used locally for centuries, gave way to new varieties optimized for factory farming – and strangely enough, these new varieties, that require a very specific method to produce the desired results, have made their ways into the local orchards and gardens, outside the factory farms, resembling miniature mimicries of these establishments, even though they are suboptimal for this kind of growth practice, and if not dangerous, but certainly counter-productive, if we want to create an optimally working ecosystem around our homes.

The local varieties don’t need special care, and fit into the #Garden effortlessly, so we intend to plant one of these.

This new apple tree will be the first tree planted by my character, and it has a special purpose.

As I mentioned, I believe (we don’t have access to information about the #Code), the #Ascent is smoother if the would-be character is going through a period which is already kind of transitional in their life. Hence the September 1 launch of this certain project – it is an optimal time of change from a seasonal and astronomical aspect.

But there are other signals of this being a new transitional period.

One of these more foundational changes is that my character lost its spiritual guide in the weeks just before my #Ascent. This guide, or spirit helper chose the shape of a dwarf rabbit, before interconnecting its life with his new apprentice.

Its name was Moses.

Moses spent 8,5 years with him, offering constant telepathic counseling and several supporting services, like offering its forehead for scratching, a greatly stress-relieving process for rabbit and human alike. Here is the last known image of them both:

Moses was buried in the #Garden.

The new apple tree will serve as a beacon, helping its spirit bond with the astral layer of the #Garden, where it can perform its guardian and maintenance duties in this particular form of existence, all the while bearing the very fruits into our ecosystem he very much liked in his previous form.
