Chapter The Bridge
by Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Amid that very personal conversation with his mother, Zila had to recognize Arachne’s courage, by transmuting into a spider, her great passion was realized, many said that Minerva had punished her, a matter out of place, no being Human has the power to transmute another, even when they have later given all of the characteristics of deities.
The world now has a global network, but there is still a long way to go before it fulfills the objective that we as humans deserve.
At that a cell phone message came from Daniel:
“Dear Professor Zila, we will gladly answer your request as soon as you can be in private contact with Tai, who is now going to the academic institution with which she commits to seal, your questions are very interesting to me in particular, understand that I cannot answer them alone, the group must reach a consensus in all this, thank you for your trust, receive a cordial greeting from your friend Daniel “
At the time that Daniel sent this message to Zila, he remembered that first interview that took place in Mar del Plata, as a journalist it was his first job great importance, privately interviewing a woman from another galaxy, certainly a fascinating honor, he remembered the conversation in detail:
Tai, tell to all of us what had been built, what was part of the Eggyan landscape, their values, their beliefs, those details that differentiate them from us, what were the religions, if they existed, were there deities or fortresses, elites, ideological divisions, please that part is very important.
Tai pointed him:
Look at Daniel, the historical notion of the Eggyans starts from a basic principle that evolved, the settlers of previous centuries were not clear about what a generalized thought in favor of humanity was worth, they thought that their ideological and theological cloisters were the weight of their culture and at the same time the identities that differentiated them from others.
Daniel asks her again:
You mean that in the time before the destruction of the planet, it was no longer the case, there were no shock groups that wanted to kneel to pray so that the inevitable would not happen.
Long ago, religions were fiefdoms of power, where people were indoctrinated, bent on their free will, subject to rules of certain conditioning ethics. When the genetics of human beings evolved and with it the possibility of reproduction was lost, as you already know, many of the principles of religions were questioned, people began a blind path for behaviors that were not expected. They observed that it did not matter how their family nucleus was constituted or the prayers to their religious entity, things were not different, they all lived the same, suffered the change in their families, it was a shock, depression for the vast majority was inevitable.
Daniel concerned request to her:
So what were the beliefs held by the Eggyans at the time of the end of the planet?
Tai explains in detail:
The group of pragmatists, the group of scientists, and that of managers; life unfolded in those parameters, the borders racial segregations disappeared, the cult of various religious factions, all of this ceased to exist; Life made its way between the modifications that genetics had imposed on us and the preservation of the lives of those of us who were still active.
Wow, Tai, an impressive change without a doubt.
We will have to define that term, Daniel, actually, from a distance, it can be seen as something fabulous, it was something necessary that was given out of necessity because life requires a space to flow during the chaos.
Back at Sofia’s house:
Zila settled into the chair next to his mother and took her hand to ask her:
– Ma, before the news starts, tell me something. Is it the great passion of a human being that defines his transmutation?
– It is not a rule dear son, life always surprises us and what is fundamental for you now, over time can become secondary, but there are valuable examples in history that give us proof of that.
The two huddled shoulder to shoulder to see what the group of Eggyans would say to the Earthlings this time.
