The Highest Power in the Universe
The reports arriving back to the alien mothership were the same. Another one bites the dust (that was their equivalent alien "thought" even without
ever having appreciated the music of the rock band, Queen). Every single time, and without fail, their lead ships were disintegrating as they
approached the enemy's solar system. And another one gone and another one gone, another one bites the dust.
The situation wasn't unlike that of a gang of thugs in the wild wild west suddenly and unexpectedly confronted by the fastest gun, ever. They didn't
know what to make of it. Surely there wasn't a higher power? Already they'd conquered system after system, including some of the most advanced
technological civilizations in the galaxy. Theirs was a righteous cause because leadership and authority, and structure, particularly on a galactic
scale is essential to maintaining the dominion of the most high power, which until now, was never contested! How could it be?
The massive armada of "invading" alien ships (it's hard to invade when every invader dies at the moment of system threshold penetration) hurtled
onward at an ever alarming speed, alarming to the "beast" in the chair, who on earth would be the equivalent of a Captain or even a President of
sorts. Alarming, because for the first time in his rather longgggg life, he was frightened, scared #less might be a better way to describe it, but he
didn't possess the suitable plumbing for such primitive excretions. He was the "perfect" being, evolved over countless aeons, the crowning glory of
all creation and with the "gift" of wielding a level of technology capable of either creating or destroying, or even remodelling, a whole world.
But in truth he'd finally met his match.
With great reluctance, he ordered a halt to their proceeedings, and halt the whole fleet did, instantly, their own threshold gateway into what so far
has proven to be oblivion looming not 10 parsecs away. The time had come for a showdown at the cosmic equivalent of the OK Coral.
A higher power? How could it be? There was no higher power, and there could not be. Long ago his particular alien species had completely harnessed
every aspect of the unified theory of quantum gravity, if only they'd taken the time to learn the moral equivalent of "the law" before they embarked
upon the quest to exert their power which for all due purposes is, or was, all powerful. How can God run into a higher power still, the Beast-Alien
figure pondered? There are no other laws we haven't already mastered, none. This is impossible, this can't be happening he concluded, but his heart
(or it's alien equivalent) had something else to say.
And then there was the cryptic nature of the one and only enemy message, always gripping his frantic and increasingly panic stricken thoughts with
utter confusion - BE NOT AFRAID, the message said, and it was given on ALL frequencies which certainly demonstrated a high technological capability
that's for sure.
But what did it mean, BE NOT AFRAID, when there was everything to fear, even and especially in his case, fear itself. Be NOT afraid? It didn't make
He checked the reports again. Yep, every ship that attempted an incursion, was disintegrated, "shot down" and destroyed even in the midst of the
quantum jump from hyperspace, something utterly impossible according to "the law".
His next reaction, was RAGE.
I AM THE HIGHEST POWER IN THE UNIVERSE! He bellowed, in the alien equivalent of English.
BE NOT AFRAID...
Having no other option, since retreat was no option (what would they say back at the colonies?), he summoned the remainder of his nerve and made the
only decision available to him - INVADE!
And with that the "Captain" of the mothership moved his hand in a complicated gesture in a holographic sphere representing what on earth would be the
equivalent of the wheel and gas pedal of a car, and the entire armada of alien ships including the mothership shot straight into a new type of
wormwhole for which the laws of physics have no correlation. Call it a "double bind".
.. whilst 21st century Earth continued is serene movement around the sun, blissfully unaware of it's special place in God's eternal kingdom of light
