Moons of Jupiter Expedition
Journal 2347/2/aw - News from Afar Expedition
We just received data, including a creation myth video, from the Afar Expedition, presently exploring Andromeda's Gamma Sector. They have found and visited yet another inhabited planet, ID= A 4316 theta2. Interestingly this planet is populated by a hive of an ancient, highly evolved, robots who were hospitable and welcomed the team, showing them around the efficiently run Central Node of a city cluster. In a museum-type facility the team came across this video when they came to wind back time to see how the robot hive evolved.
Apparently, many eons previously, life evolved here with organic creatures that evolved to technological civilisation level. But they, as we did on Earth, destroyed their own life-supporting biosphere using fossil fuels and creating an out-of-control world warming. The last survivors created armoured robots designed to withstand the predicted conditions before they too either perished or migrated in long-lost space ships.
Now selected android robots, a ruling class, operate with a creation myth program that gives them the illusion of a past they supposedly evolved from. In this myth program the organic predecessors’ souls went to a “Perfect Land” Shangri-La Heaven in another dimension in another universe. Supposedly these androids are the carrier cocoon of these souls reborn. Each droid operates with a deep connection to a specific predecessor soul and functions in real-timeas that indiviual would have in the past, whether as an architect, musician, soldier, designer or whatever.
I’ve extracted this curious image from the creation myth program video. The initial populators, the Proto-robots, are shown emerging out of a wormhole from Shangri-La (Xanadu, Paradise, Heaven, Ultimate Thule, Hawaiki, Valhalla or whatever) as the “Reborn”. It is probably the seed of this belief system. I could find nothing on the video except the vision of that Perfect Land suspended in space/time - elusive, mysterious, and at a distance, never close-up.
The hive's prime directive is facilitating the planet's evolving biosphere function to support the return of an intelligent organic species. Indeed over millions of years the biosphere on this planet has self-adjusted. Life once again flourishes at a level we might equate with Earth’s Devonian or Carboniferous. Not quite Goldilocks-right for our species however.....yet.
Apparently the expedition team was greeted as “The Returned”. They did not dissuade their hosts and left with the promise “We’ll be back”.
