As I wait for contact I should probably explain a bit.
There is one question only Maban can answer. It's not posted on the thread and it's not known by Tenzin or Kvasir.
Maban left it in our care (the three) along with the other information we have discussed in the Shards thread. Beyond this "cluster" of confusion
there is still much to be explored.
The "NIA" and "Remnants" (if they exist) already know the truth. Indeed, if Maban is dead or gone the truth needs to be posted, discussed,
debated and explored. We backed off the discussion before because we believed that it would endanger someone's life.
When you peel away the layers of the onion, the lies, the deceit, the script-kiddies and deceivers there is a core of truth. We were on the way to
finding it until the thread went haywire in February. Heck, maybe we were getting too close and that's why all these characters came out of the
The original Maban was wise. He didn't make decisions lightly. He was inventive and creative, and sometimes used those skills to enliven the story.
One thing he was not, though, is stupid.
A theme repeated in all the esoteric mysteries and schools of spirituality is the number three. Life, in fact, is like a three-legged stool. It will
stand on it's own even if the three legs are slightly uneven. It will not rock or fall over unless a leg is removed.
If you add a fourth you unbalance the store. This is why four-legged tables and chairs always seem to rock a little bit.
If you remove a leg the stool falls over.
Oedipus was asked, "What goes on four legs in the morning, on two legs at noon, and on three legs in the evening?" (I bet all of you know the
answer but don't post it yet. If there are those who haven't seen it let them think about it.)
Many times in esoterica, "three" refers to mind, body and spirit.
I believe this was the balance Maban was seeking when he chose the three of us to be custodians of his message.
One was chosen as the "mind". The mind is curious to a fault, and insatiable for the truth. It computes, calculates, explores and tries to
rationalize everything. The mind is easily distracted.
One was chosen as the "spirit". The spirit feels, intuits and perceives. The spirit is the judge of fact and fiction. The spirit can discern
truth from fantasy but the spirit is vulnerable to darkness. It's like turning on the radar in a fighter jet, for those who like Coonts and Clancy.
You can turn on the radar to find out what's going on, but the second you do the enemy knows where you are.
The third is the "body". The body maintains contact with the ground. The body is the conscience and the common sense. The body is steady and
resolved, and speaks when necessary to focus the wandering of the mind and protect the vulnerability of the spirit. It keeps the mind from "writing
checks the body can't cash" sort of thing.
All are necessary to maintain balance.
The three are not alone, though. Those who have followed the thread for a while know that there is an array of brilliance here. There are members
with much stronger mental, spiritual and conscientious abilities than the three, and they keep this thing honest.
So what if the Shards don't exist?
"So what?" indeed. Maybe we *are* the Shard. Maybe this whole thing has been a call to get humanity started. Let's face it, even the most jaded
and cold of us "know" deep down inside there is something bigger than us out there.
There is a calling for humanity. I was hoping Maban finally had the answers a lot of us were seeking.
As my friend the "operator" says, "There is a lot I can't tell you, and won't tell you, but there is one thing that will always be true. The
good guys always win."
