is most marked over the cerebral hemisphere. Paralysis of the half of the body occurs. There is erratic rigidity of the limbs. The superficial reflexes disappear on both sides. The pupils at first are equally contracted; later they become dilated and fixed. Both optic discs are œdematous and swollen.
Gradually s/he becomes unconscious, shows signs of increasing intra-cranial tension, slowing of the pulse, and laboured respiration.
The temporary relief of symptoms follows the withdrawal of cerebro-spinal fluid by repeated lumbar puncture.
Nevertheless, the condition will be fatal within three or four days.
S/He woke up with multiple fracture of both bones of leg.
Now s/he finds themselves in an intensive care unit.
The medical staff uses one of the most reliable methods of hastening union in these cases.
They do it by inducing passive hyperæmia of the limb. They apply an elastic bandage above the seat of fracture, sufficiently tightly to congest the limb beyond, and, to concentrate the congestion in the vicinity of the fracture, an ordinary bandage is applied from the distal extremity to within a few inches of the break. The hyperæmia will be maintained for several hours. An apparatus is adjusted to enable the patient to get into the open air.
Their general condition will be improved, by dieting and tonics.
Now s/he feels so much better.
"I'm elevating again."
"How can you still do this?"
"You don't know who you're talking to."
"I want you to take this."
"Whenever you feel lost, this will help you find your way home. Will you remember that?"
"I don't care."
"Please, you are the last person I thought I'd fall for."
"I don't want to hurt you."
Life has other plans.
Their special elevation device is an externally applied, non-invasive device which maintains an open channel in situations when advanced alien technology is in danger of being compromised.
One day an elevation technician came up with the idea, that the sensual experience is constrained neither by natural law, nor by moral law. In that playing area, sensibility and reason are brought together by means of the imagination.
It reveals the hidden dynamics. The concept is harmony and perfection.
They believe that elevation is essentially not suited for representing vile and violent matters.
From now on, the trajectory of their lives will be like nothing they've ever experienced before.
And there's no going back.
They still have a long journey ahead of them.
"Go home, get some rest."
"That's a good idea. We probably should do that."

The funny thing about regret is that it's better to regret
Something you have done than

"Let's get started. We have a lot of work to do."
They don't wait any longer.
talking and making guesses.
But that's not all s/he needs... .
"I want to go now. I want to find it... and come back with more information."
S/He subscribes to the free energy news portal.
There's much more to know.
S/He hopes to learn soon.
They care a lot at a social media etiquette class in this very remote dusty galaxy.
Charmayanne is reaching for a bigger picture, a turn of the spiral that opens up into trust.
"Last night I saw you really focus on what you were doing but then going to sad and scared thoughts about the future."
"I moved in the shadows..."
"Turn around now. The forest... ...is moving."
"I feel the fear and the sadness but it’s held in a bigger much bigger picture."
"We've been friends for 10 years, okay?"
"Look, if something happens, we're gonna suffer for the rest of our lives."
"Oh, come on. Nothing's gonna happen."
They wait while Charmayanne’s system begins to calm. S/He has been almost blind with fear and overwhelm. They wait. They breathe. They surround them with gentle love. They feel a connection.
"Would you like to come with me?"
the well of sadness fills the pit of their stomach and they all recognise that, yes, s/he is feeling scared and sad.
They feel those things with them.
"Listen we are here."
Charmayanne is blinking at the transition from one place to another. The Sun comes out through the clouds gently warming their skin.
They stay grounded in their own compassion and in their own time - for the first time in this overwhelming past situation that they have time travelled to. They breathe. They are here and they are breathing together.
"Would you like a hug?"
S/he looks up.
"Would you like to come with me?"
Yes s/he says.
They find themselves in the garden and look at the tops of the trees.
"Okay, so, first an unsolicited tick pic, and now a FaceTime call with no warning?"
"I thought it was a fun surprise."
"Do you think, maybe I should bring them in?"
"The ones that came out of your Elevation night?"
"Can I get a Y to the E to the--"
"That's what Elevation is all about."
"So, we're just helping them to get there."
"But I also need you to get to work on elevation that lifeforms will actually pay to do."
"Hi, me again. Well, Sharlyn 1 + 2 are coming in today."
"Wow. This could be a get."
"We worked really hard to get them in here--"
"Would you mind if I join the meeting?"
