Chapter 35-Lost Ship
We were now within communication distance from the lost
ship. I say communication distance, but as you know their
radio, or communication system is different from ours, so
we had to alter things a little. I said to Reeas, ‘Do you want
to take this,’ referring to the job of first-contact.
‘No, Dan, you are doing fine.’
‘Very well,’ I said, ‘but you know I’m not too good at first
‘My first impression of you was very good.’ she said.
‘Thanks, that is all I want. OK, here we go.’
‘Star ship from Amiron, do you read me?’ I could by now see and
hear everything on the Amiron ships bridge, and I could tell they had only just received my message at the time it was sent. In other words, they had no prior knowledge we were near. I
could see the people in charge scrambling to the microphone.
Boy, it must have been a momentous few seconds for them.
‘Yes, please go on, who are you? Are you from Amiron?’
They were excited, and I can’t blame them. I realized they were
by now over-the-moon, but I also noticed that the ships defences
were now in red mode, with the defence shields up.
Debra said, ‘Their weapons are trained on us, Dan.’
‘OK, Debra, I know.’
‘I know, she said, but I thought I would let you know anyway.’
‘Thank you Debra.
‘Please, Debra.’ said Reeas, ‘we are trying to contact them.’
‘I know, said Debra, I am just trying to be helpful.’
‘Thank you.’ Said Reeas, ‘we can handle it.’
with that, Debra made a sort of humph noise, and went blank.
‘Unknown ship, can you read us?’ they said.
‘Yes,’ I said, ‘I can also see your shields are up, and your
weapons are trained on us.’
The person who was in charge looked flustered.
‘Hurry up and get the captain out of sleep mode.’ He said to
one of his ship mates.
‘There is no need to panic.’ I said, ‘we are friendly.’
‘Good,’ he said, ‘we too are friendly. Will you please state your intentions?’
‘Our Intentions are to help you.’ I said.
‘Really?’ he said.
I could by now access everything I needed to sort out whatever needed to be done to get the ship back on track to Amiron, also anything else that was needed to supply and equip it. I could see the Info-Scrambler had been activated on their ship. This means they were trying to access our computer.
‘These are not very trusting people.’ I said to Reeas.
‘No, but to be fair, you can’t blame them, their computer will
be unable to access anything about us, so it is only natural they will be a little suspicious.’
‘Yes, but this guy in charge is very Grumpy, I can tell by
his thought pattern.’
‘Yes, said Debra, I wouldn’t trust him, Dan.’
‘Thank you Debra.’ I said.
By now the Captain had arrived in a very agitated state, I knew
what he was going through. Anyone who has been in deep Sleep
mode knows well enough what a pain it is to wake up. He had to
sit down to gather himself together.
‘Don’t worry, Captain Kriron, we will wait till you are rested.’
I knew that would shake them up a bit.
‘How do you know our names?’ he said.
‘We know everyone’s name on your ship; we also know everything that we need to know to get you back on track to Amiron,’
‘What?’ He said.
‘Yes, you are to be sent home.’
‘No!’ he shouted, ‘we are on a mission to find new worlds.’
‘Can we come over and discuss it.’ I said.
‘Not if you insist on trying to send us home. He said.’
‘This is going to be harder than I thought,’ I said to Reeas.
‘Yes, I suspected this would happen.’
‘OK,’ I said, ‘now what?’
Debra said, ‘Their weapons are charged Dan.’
‘Yes Debra, I said, I know.’
‘You know we will be contacting the Veritalanian-Meridian in
seven hours.’ Reeas said.
‘Yes,’ I said, ‘I know. OK, let’s get aboard their ship.’
‘Can I come, Dan.’ Debra said.
‘How?’ I said.
‘I can come as a hologram.’
‘You don’t need to come.’ Reeas said, you can access anything
we can while here on the ship.’
‘Yes,’ Debra said, ‘but I want to be near Dan.’
I glanced at Reeas with a we-might-have-a-problem look.
‘Can you actually appear as part of the ship Debra? I mean, as
‘I am not a robot!’ she said!
‘No, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean robot. You know what I mean, as
part of the ship, in body form.’
‘Yes,’ Debra said.
‘Good,’ I said. ‘Yes, you can come with us Debra, will you also
be in charge of the ship?’
‘Of course, dear.’ she said.
Reeas was by now a little concerned about Debra.
OK, now for you students out there, yes, I know, it is funny that Debra is acting strange but I am not worried, after all, a
ship of our magnitude will regenerate often, so it is just
part of the process. She seems to be attracted to me; I’m not
complaining, who wouldn’t want a gorgeous female light body near
them. Reeas and I knew that with our light suits we could simply
fall out into space and fly over to the Amiron ship, and then
simply push our way in without endangering either ourselves or
the Amiron ship.
‘This should be a shock to them.’ I said.
Debra said. ‘Yes dear.’
‘Please, Debra, don’t call me dear in front of them, will you?’
‘All right, but I can’t understand why?’
‘Just call me Dan, as usual.’
‘OK, Dan,’ she said, sounding a little put out.
‘Make sure they can’t see what is happening Debra, will you.’
‘Yes Dan dear. Only joking, she said.’
I took a deep breath sighed and then we pushed our way out into space and then flew over to the Amiron which was the actual name of the ship. It was a giant of a craft some several thousand yards long with massive laser guns which were capable of destroying any normal craft, of course, our craft wasn’t normal. We reached the main entry door and simply, yes, I know I use simply a lot but things do seem easy when you are a Guardian. We simply walked into the airlock room then through into the main boarding compartment.
The look on the crew members faces as we walked in was one of
total shock. I saw that security people were in the room also
with high-intensity blasters at the ready, in fact, one went off
and glanced off my suit, then ricocheted into the wall making
a substantial hole. I knew the damage was serious as the air
re filter system was now in danger of failure.
‘What the hell,’ shouted one of the crew.
‘Don’t worry,’ I said, ‘Debra, get that will you?’
Debra walked over to the wall and touched it. The repair was
‘God almighty,’ Shouted another of the crew. I thought to myself
this crew are a lot like people from Earth, trigger happy,
‘Please don’t use your weapons anymore someone might get
injured, now take us to your Captain.’
You students know that Reeas and I are still in our
regular clothes, plus our light suits which were invisible. Debra was in a skimpy dancing dress with frilly tassels at the elbows. I was going to say something but I thought no, leave it. Also she had on very high heels and lovely earrings.
‘Please, Debra.’ I whispered, ‘can you just be normal?’
‘Why don’t you like me?’ she said?
‘I do,’ I said, ‘but we are at work.’
I could now see the crew from the Amiron were confused.
The security chief was eyeing us with menace. I could tell he was stressed out and unsure what to do. I could also read his thought pattern and knew I had to watch him with closely. I said please let us go to the bridge. He gestured with his laser rifle to walk to the main door. We walked up a very long corridor to the bridge. Debra was by now walking like a fashion model on a catwalk.
Reeas said, ‘What are we going to do about her?’
I said, ‘What can we do?’
The security guards were in front and at the rear with guns
Ready. I instructed Debra by thought to neutralize their weapons.
‘OK, Danny,’ she said.
Oh, hell, I thought, why bother, just accept it. The more I get
bothered about Debra, the more it seems to get worse. We reached
the bridge, by now, there were lots of people around us.
Why I didn’t just re adjust the Amiron from our ship, I thought.
‘Hello Captain.’ I said. ‘We are from the emergency landing base
on the asteroid Aulous,’
‘I don’t care where you are from, just go away.’ He said.
‘Captain,’ one of the crew said. ‘Can we just hear what
they have to say?’
‘No,’ the Captain shouted!
I asked Debra to assess his mental state. She informed me that
he was suffering from severe stress overload.
‘OK,’ I said, ‘who is the 2.i.C.’ (second-in-command).
People were now looking at another person in the room but I already knew who he was.
I said, ‘I am now speaking to all the people in the room.
Do you want to go home?’ No one said anything for a few seconds,
and then one young woman spoke up. I already knew she was Tyren,
the person who was earmarked for Guardian training.
‘Yes,’ I want to go anywhere, but here.’ she said.
‘I’ll have you suspended-in-time for this,’ the Captain said.
I looked at Debra, she already knew my thoughts. The Captain
was now rooted to the spot, and totally stiff.
Will you please take him to the sleep-tubes?’ I said.
The security people were still training their weapons on us.
One security man who I now realized was second-in-command of
security started to approach me. He said, ‘As my boss is in a
coma and in sleep-mode I am now taking over control.’ Then the
actual second-in-command of the ship said, ‘No you’re not, I am
in charge while the Captain is away.’ The security man then
pointed his weapon at him and said, ‘When it comes to the security of this ship I am in charge.’
I looked at Reeas. She whispered, ‘Dan, we have less than thirty-five minutes before we reach the Meridian.’
‘Yes,’ I said in a low voice, ‘I know.’
I couldn’t explain to them that a Non-Human alien race would
destroy them in a short while. ‘Right,’ I said, ‘time to act.’
I looked at Debra, she already knew what to do, everyone on
the bridge just walked off to their stations of work or rest.’
Thank you, Debra.’ I said.
‘No problem, big-boy.’ she said. Reeas just started to laugh.
Tyren was in the room with us, I knew she was somewhat
confused but she could understand something of who we were.
‘I knew you would come, someday’ she said.
‘What do you know of us?’ I said.
‘I know I see you in my dreams.’ She said.
‘Don’t even think about it!’ Debra said, taking hold of Tyren’s arm.
‘Debra, please,’ I said. ‘She is a Potential-Guardian.’
‘I know, Dan, but she has feelings for you, I can tell.’
‘Yes, and I have feelings for Reeas, what do you think of that?’
I wish I hadn’t said that, as Debra suddenly grabbed Reeas
by the arm. ‘What is happening?’ I said. ‘OK, back to the ship
and that’s an order,’
I was feeling pretty scared at that moment, I can tell you. Debra was all powerful and I knew it. I had to keep my thoughts on the job and not get emotionally involved; I know it is silly,
but I don’t know what she will do in anger, so to speak.
Back on the ship we could see a message had just come through for the Amiron ship; it said to turn away from Groveelion space or be destroyed. I instructed Debra to assess all the data from the Groveelions, after a short time we had enough Data to trim
down their numbers by mainly assessing their mental or rather etheric state. We had, by now, realigned the Amiron Ship; it could now travel home in eight point two Years, Tyren was escorted over to our ship, and she formerly accepted training as a Guardian, she was excited but not overly concerned, and that is a really good sign, it means she can cope with the stress and there will be stress, my student friends.
OK, now for the Good bit. To experience a ship like the Amiron
being upgraded by a lightship is really special, also the crew
were to be retrained in whatever was needed to get them
back to Amiron. Most of the crew were happy to be going home
although they had never been on a Planet! What would the People
on Amiron think when they get back. All of the crews Relatives long dead!
It had been 375 years for the crew but it was twelve thousand six-hundred years for the Planet Amiron! The distance was only a paltry 350 light years, but with time-dilation you can, as it were, time travel.
For those students who want to be exact, please be aware that the ship was not always traveling at light speed, also they were
stopped for a number of years to make repairs, whatever the
outcome, they will be very late! OK, not wanting to blow
our own horns, we did pretty well I think. Now, you say, why
did we have to go through all that when we could had done it
all aboard our ship, well, all I can say is it is a learning
thing for us all, and as Zelda 3 said, we had to leave it till the last minute to get more info.
Amiron already knows about Guardians, so that won’t be a
problem when they get back.’
OK, Debra I said, back to the base.’
‘No Problem, Daddy,’ she was now also giving me a shoulder massage;
I must admit I liked it. Reeas just had to laugh. Tyren just
looked on in a confused way.
Chapter 36-Base Camp
Back at base, Zelda3 said, ‘Good job team. Tyren, please come with me you will need to be updated about who, and what we are.’ I really felt good at that moment.
‘Well, I said, we didn’t need the Tourgen-Clones did we.’
‘No but no-harm-done.’
I said, you do know about Debra, Don’t you?’
‘Yes, Zelda3 said, it, or she, is going through a
‘What exactly is that?’ I said.
‘You know she likes you, Dan.’
‘Yes, but surely it will be rectified, yes? I mean, surely she
has come across men before?’
‘Yes, but she is really a part of the Guardian-network, and also partly mechanical and linked into Mannus himself. You are from
Earth, and are also linked into Mannus. Earth is a…’
‘Don’t tell me.’ I said, ‘a lower consciousness planet.’
‘Yes,’ but don’t worry, you are beginning to lift up.’
‘When will I be classed as higher?’
‘Do not think like that, we live in the now, and that is all that matters.’
Just like Sionn, I thought!
‘Yes,’ she said, ‘we are of the same higher state.’
Oh, great, I thought, I keep forgetting she can read my mind.
‘As far as Debra is concerned,’ Zelda said, ‘she will not be any trouble, I know she took offense to Reeas, but she would not harm anyone intentionally.’
‘You like Debra, then?’ I asked.
‘Yes, she will make a very useful asset. Before you became a Guardian we didn’t view any part of the lightship as a personality, even as we speak she is cleaning the outside of the ship with soapy water, wearing a tight jump suit, and asking about you,’
‘Oh, no,’ I said.
‘Just joking,’ Zelda3 said. ‘She is being reassessed in the lab.
You will notice changes, but it is up to you to keep your
conscious mind in check, you know that Debra is the ship and any
other ship that you will have access to in the future.’
‘Yes,’ I said, ‘she wants to protect me so it is up to me to limit my thoughts to work ethic.’
‘Yes,’ Zelda3 said.
‘I’ll try,’ I said.
Reeas said, ‘It sounds a bit boring when you say it like that.’
‘I know,’ Zelda3 said, ‘but boring doesn’t come into it when you
Reach a certain level.’
‘All I want to do is dance.’ I said, ‘will you do me the honor
‘Yes,’ she said!
‘OK,’ I said, ‘a little Latin American, maybe?’
‘Si, senor,’ said, Zelda 3.
‘I think we will leave the three out of the picture, from now
on. Is that OK with you, Zelda?’
And now for you students again: I strongly advise you to take
up dancing, it not only keeps you fit and young, but gets you
access to a lot of females and the one who takes the first
prize is Zelda! No offense Reeas! I felt I was melting in
her arms, of course I had to dance with Reeas later. You
guessed it, the waltz!
After resting, and upgrading, we take a little look into the
light book, I make sure Reeas or Debra are there to stop me from
taking in too much power, so to speak, Yes, Debra is now a
permanent part of the team. She still tries to tease me, but is now under full control, she also appears as Bridget Bardot, or any of the women I Used to be fond of as a young man, girls like Sofia Loren, and Marylyn Monro, It is quite exciting to find someone like that in your everyday life, well, when I say everyday life, nothing is further from the truth, usually we are working in space, or somewhere totally alien, and not everyday life time, anyway, as students you know what I mean.
You will think I live a pretty good existence eh? Well I can
tell you that we, as Guardians, have to control our selves
every day, yes, we are like Monks if you like, and Debra
isn’t making it any easier! Zelda said that Debra would be
more controlled, but she insists on me calling her Debbie!
I’ve told her I am married now, but she won’t have it.
I said, ‘You are the ship, and the Network.’
‘Woman!’ she said.
‘Yes,’ I said, ‘but please, just be my friend, OK.’
‘Yes.’ she said, and then she appeared as a Nun!
I told Zelda about the episode, but she said it was up to me to
keep control of myself, even when I am doing my yoga exercises she appears on my inner screen! Zelda knows what is happening and just wants me to deal with it; I must admit I find it fascinating to have a piece of Guardian equipment as my personal valet, fan, and protector. I now believe Zelda has some other reason for Debbie to become so protective of me, but I didn’t know as yet, what was about to happen, if I did, I would have been very concerned, I can tell you, my student friends. Now let us talk about the ship, or in other words, the material that makes up the ship; please don’t ask me to explain exactly what it is, or how it works, as I don’t know, yes, I hear you say, but you are supposed to be a Guardian, yes, I am, but even Guardians are limited, I just accept that whatever we need will be supplied. I feel sure Zelda knows the ins and outs of everything, but she is way beyond my abilities to comprehend. I know the ship can change its shape to any size, and go way beyond light speed, also, for instance, remember at Far-Station when I had to do everything in low-consciousness-mode, well, I can tell you that the ship at that time could not relate to me, as I was not in a higher state of consciousness. I now know why Debra is being so nice; my consciousness has increased to a higher level. Debra can relate to me, but what happens when I have to deal with a lower consciousness crisis! I suppose it will be a Far-Station scenario again, the thought makes me a little worried my friends I can tell you, I must admit, I want Debra around, and with that thought she appeared at once!
‘Don’t worry Dan; I will be here, always!
She was dressed in a sort of apron type dress that used to be
used in Iowa the 1920s, I remember my mother used to wear one
when I was about ten years old.
‘Debra, I said, ‘I must admit I like you like this.’
‘Good,’ she said, ‘then that is all I want, relax and I’ll put
on one of your favorite records.’ she disappeared, then came back In a lovely red dress with matching shoes, I could now hear
the old record player, like the one we used to have in the
1960s in England, this was my last incarnation as Dan Sherman,
It was a ballad.
‘Let’s dance,’ Debra said. I looked at Reeas, she held out
her arms, as if to say, go ahead. How could I resist?
Later in the restroom Reeas said, ‘Are you sure about
Debra being stable enough for the next job?’
‘Why? Has Zelda said something about the job?’ If I had been more conscious I would have known she hadn’t.
‘No, I mean when we next have a job.’
‘I am trying to stabilize her, or me, what else can I do?’
‘We could use an old type ship. She said.’
‘No!’ Debra shouted, as she appeared next to Reeas, I could see
Reeas was shocked. Debra had heard, or rather, I had heard, and
she being linked into my consciousness knew what I knew.
‘Please, Debra.’ Reeas said, ‘we are trying to have a
‘No,’ Debra said, ‘you are trying to turn him against me.’
‘OK,’ I said, ‘time for a break. Debra, you know I want you,
so just give me a little time with my wife.’
‘Yes, Dan, but I am here if you want me.’
‘Yes, I know, and I appreciate that.’
Zelda came into the room. Without talking she touched me behind
the neck, I was now incapable of moving or even thinking!
This part has been added by a coworker from the records section
to relate to you students:
‘We have to talk,’ said Zelda. ‘Let us please go into the isolation room.’ Once there, she said, ‘let us transfer into the inner worlds and then into the third main level.’ Reeas knew this was about Debra. (The third main level was a separation point to the higher mental or ethereal worlds’)
‘Now, we can access the first sub plane.
‘OK team, we have a problem with Debra.’ Zelda said.
I was now feeling very light-headed.’
I had to put you into a mental block state, Dan, so we can
access and reassess your mind.’
I couldn’t speak, but I could understand when she spoke, but not
to anyone else. All I was conscious of was Zelda’s voice. Reeas
by this time was talking to Zelda about the crisis that was
Debra, the conversation went like this:
‘I feel worried about Dan,’ said Reeas.
‘Yes, I know,’ said Zelda, ‘the matter has got more serious than
we thought, In effect, if Dan is not stabilized then Debra could
create havoc; she could quite easily control the whole
‘Surely Dan wouldn’t let that happen.’
‘No, but don’t forget the subconscious, she knows whatever he
knows, and vice versa.’
‘My God,’ said Reeas, this could be catastrophic!’
‘We might have to put Dan into isolation.’ Zelda said.
‘No!’ Reeas shouted!
‘I’m sorry, Reeas, we looked into the records to see what the
outcome would be.’
‘Yes, but you know it can also work both ways?’
‘Yes, but we cannot take any chances.’
All I can remember is the voice of Zelda telling me, that I would be at rest for a while.
Not a nice way to treat a loyal Guardian, I hear you say? All
I know is I am in a sort of small place, in fact, I thought I was in the hologram room. I was still conscious, but I didn’t know where. It took me a while to find out exactly where I was, after all, I am a Guardian, well nearly. I kept saying to myself I am Dan Sherman. I tried to contact Reeas and Zelda, but I couldn’t get through. I also tried to meditate, but no luck. I knew something serious had happened, but I didn’t know what. Some people in the physical world would say that when anything good or bad happens it is luck. You, as Student Guardians know it is not. There is no such thing as luck we earn our place in this, or any other world. I then thought, OK, let me try the Ultimate-Consciousness, yes, you got it, Mannus! It took a long time; how long, I don’t know, but I wasn’t going to be imprisoned here. As I became more conscious I found I was on the familiar hill top looking out over that very comforting view. I thought the only real thing you can rely on is God himself, and I had found mine. Without saying a word, he just looked into my eyes. I was now enraptured. I could also see Zelda and Reeas watching us from behind a glass dome? In fact, we were in the dome and they couldn’t get in. I then noticed Debra who was now sitting next to me? She looked me in the eyes; I felt a love for her that I never thought possible. How could this be?
Mannus said, ‘She is the ship, and she is the power, she is also
part of you, and being that, cannot be parted from you. Be at
rest with that Thought.’
I couldn’t wait to dance with her, so we danced in the air, where else? How long, Mannus alone knows. I felt totally rested and stabilized.
In the sub base room Zelda said, ‘You are the first being
to escape from the isolation-room.’
I said, ‘What about Kallo?’
‘Yes, but that was in the other Universe. Congratulations, you
have taken a step higher in the worlds of God.’
I said, ‘You knew I would escape, didn’t you?’
‘Yes,’ and we knew where you would go,’ said Reeas. How do you
‘I feel very well.’
‘Good, because I know a certain Guardian who wants to dance with
Reeas was her usual calm self, showing no animosity whatever.
‘I said, I feel so grateful that I have all you beautiful People
in my life, three of the most desirable women to ever come into
existence. Debra was now fully under control because I was fully
under control. I now realized that it was I that was making
Debra do silly things; she could still do silly things but,
It would be me who made her. Confusing, I hear some students
say. Zelda said, ‘Dan, how do you think Kallo escaped from
‘I have often thought about the same thing, I said. I had to go
to the highest source in the Universe, so God alone knows where
he managed to get to, or who helped him?’
‘Well, you can find out.’
‘What?’ I said.
‘Yes, he’s escaped again!’
‘Do you mean he’s here in this Universe?’
‘No.’ Zelda said. ‘We want you, Reeas and Deria to go back to the Humanoid Universe.’
‘And me’ said Debra!
‘Yes, and you.’ Zelda said.
‘What about my new consciousness? Will it not be too high for
‘No,’ said, Zelda, you still have a long way to go.’
Thanks a lot. I thought.
You’re welcome.’ Zelda said.
‘Yes, I guess I am still low. Can I ask you something?’ I
said to Zelda.
‘How is it that Kallo can escape so easily?’
‘That is what we want you find out?’ She said.
Stupid question, I thought.
‘Yes,’ Zelda, said.
It was now starting to sink in. Kallo on the loose again!
Reeas said, well, Dan, ‘Here we go again.’
Yes, I know.’ Debra then appeared and said, ‘Don’t you
two worry, I’ll take care of him.’
I looked at Reeas, she smiled. Deria was now also with us, and
ready to do battle.
Chapter 38-Return Home
I must admit I was excited to be meeting Sionn again, but on
the other hand, I was sad to know I would be leaving Zelda.
‘You can come back in your dreams, you know.’ Zelda said.
‘Really.’ I said.
‘Yes, you met Mannus, didn’t you?’
‘Yes.’ I now realized I was able to come and go in both the Human and the Non-Human Universes.
‘Hold it’ I said, ‘what about Reeas?’
‘Yes, also Reeas and Deria.’
‘And me!’ Debra exclaimed.
‘Ah, yes, and you.’ Zelda said smiling.
‘They can’t part the old team eh?’ I said. Meaning Reeas and Deria, but Debra said, ‘No, Dan, they can’t.’ I thought I will have to control her more.
‘Yes, Dan, you will, but I will still be here.’
I must admit though the trip home was a cracker! We decided to use the ship to do part of the very long journey just for the excitement of surfing the meridian. Yes, my Student friends. It is a phenomenon that happens when two Universe’s meet. You can imagine the awesome gravity. Like an almighty wave of stars.
And we will be riding that wave for some several trillion miles. We were, as you know, (sorry if I keep saying ‘as you know,’ but, you really do know, don’t you?
On the human side of the meridian, all we needed to do was wait till the wave was at its highest, then simply, (sorry if I keep saying simply but it is)ride it back towards home. Debra would calculate the exact time. I can tell you my friends, it was a very special experience. Why? You say. Because we rode it as a Santa clause sled. Yes, that’s right. It must have been Christmas somewhere, so we decided to celebrate. We even dressed up for the occasion. Of course, I was Santa Clause. You had to be there to appreciate it but you can easily imagine it. Yes, as students you can actually be there. Yes, I know it is a bit silly, but we felt like being a bit silly for once, and as Zelda said, no-harm-done. God, I will miss her. Yes, I know I can see her in my dreams. I felt a bit melancholy as we flashed through the Universe. It would have taken us a hell of a long time to get home as you know.
So we had to simply, (again) put the ship on auto pilot, and let it return to the nearest base with our physical bodies, as we dreamt our way back to the Earth base.
Debra was OK about it; she will now be part of the ships fleet when we get back to Earth. We were safe enough in our light
suits on the sled so when she turned back into a normal
lightship we slept. I don’t know why I am relating these simple
matters to you, as you are Student-Guardians and you know only too well. OK, just one more song as we power down and take in some awesome starry beauty, a Christmas Carol Just for Sionn, Grenwer and company. Now it was time to sleep.
You Students already know you can go anywhere you are allowed
to go, and do whatever you are allowed to do. That’s right, my
friends, you have to earn your way to heaven, so to speak. The
higher you go the more beautiful the experiences. Well, I am
going to see just how far I can go. I have a feeling I am needed
on a certain Plane. I am pulled upwards, how far? I don’t know,
but I know that I hadn’t intentionally wanted to go in any one
direction. I felt as though I was being taken somewhere. My
senses were telling me that there was no danger ahead, but I was
now in unexplored territory. Imagine this, my friends, I see
Kallo’s face, yes, his classic villain looks, there, staring at
me! Where? You ask. All around the landscape! As I become
focused I am now on a mountain top looking out over a vast range
of mountains as far as the eye could see and farther. I was
looking through my astral-body eyes, or rather, the eyes of
whatever body I was in, and whatever plane I was on. All I know
is Kallo was here, looking at me from all of the mountain tops!
How could this be? I thought.
‘I’ll tell you, ‘Trainee-Dancer!’ He said.
Not again, I thought.
‘What are we going to do with you?’ I said.
‘Nothing, because now, fool, you will be completely unable to do anything. You have been lucky up to now, Trainee. Can’t you see I am vastly more experienced than you? Look where we are!’
Kallo was now holding out his arms in a gesture of self-assured
arrogance. ‘I brought you here to prove I can reach the higher regions. Did you think I was limited to the lower planes?’
My head was starting to ache, how could this be? I was in the
astral, mental, or one of the higher regions and I didn’t know
which, with the worst villain in the Universe! I have
to get myself together, I thought. Is Kallo trying to control
me or my mind, or my spirit? One thing I know is I am in a
place that disrupts my whole being, and Kallo knows it! All
I wanted to do was have a peaceful time on a higher plane.
‘You are going to be here for a very long time,’ said Kallo.
‘I’m getting really fed up with this, Kallo,’ I said.
Suddenly it went very dark, and the landscape changed.
I was now in a very dark, depressing, and eerie place. OK, I
thought could Kallo be trying to bluff me once again! My conscious mind was telling me that I was somewhere in the higher
regions, but my inner self was saying no! One thing was
for sure, Kallo was having a serious effect on me.
‘Don’t worry, Dan, I’m here.’
God, I was glad to hear Debra’s voice. I was then aware of Mannus!
The place was filled with the brightest light. Kallo was nowhere
to be found. I then realized I was only on the 36th level of
the astral Plane! How could it be? I thought. Debra said, Kallo
is very good at influencing people. He has had a lot of practice
‘What was he trying to prove?’ I said.
‘He was hoping you would believe you were on a higher level, then he would try to alter your consciousness.’
‘Is that possible?’ I said.
‘Yes, don’t forget you are in one of his planes, you were
also in a state of disbelief. The Mind can believe it is
But I would have eventually found out.’
‘Yes, but that could have taken a very long time. I believe Kallo is trying to get you out of the way for a while. You were on a sort of beautiful dream trip, and unprepared. I suggest you put into cold storage your beautiful dreams for a while.’
You are right, Debra, ‘I’ve always had a weakness for beautiful
I know, Dan, as I am part of you, I know what you know.’
‘I am eternally grateful to you, Debra, you have certainly proved that you can protect me and anyone else.’
‘I only want to protect you, Dan. Would you like to dance?’
‘Why not? What type of dance?’ I said.
‘I know what you like,’ she said. ‘Disco.’
