01 – Memory
Kathy lived in two worlds; one, her senses; two, the larger world of memory. Memory spoke to her in word and vision.
02 – Memories
There were hidden places within her; languages that no one spoke. There was love, pain, and the promise of becoming.
03 – Knowledge
Memories came unbidden; and understanding from her ancestors, deciphering events, answering questions in an instant.
04 – Knowing
The new was surreal to Kathy, like watching movies in a blurry, off-axis context; voices inside her, shaping events.
05 – Remembering
Knowing came unbidden, filling her at quantum speed; the meanings of symbols, and of histories, filtered in no-time.
06 – Understanding
Comprehension came from outside time and space; trillions of points of light drawn into the concrescence of insight.
07 – Expressing
Kathy played, sang, spoke in her own voice, sensing the multitude guiding her fingers, brushes, pen, and her tongue.
