Chapter the Bridge
by Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
One of the most exciting challenges for any researcher is to see and feel that what is done gives them results when everything is against the search continues and nobody stops someone who he recognizes that what is in front of him is an unprecedented fact and from which it is necessary to learn.
Each tissue sample, each test tube that had been smashed in her laboratory, allowed her to see clearly little by little in the midst of the darkest of unreason.
Ruadek Vilob started a new path, she went to the Moon of Medreos and requested in the general hospital the brains of people who had died with that body paralysis that usually occurs in adult patients of reproductive age.
On the other hand, she tried in vitro gestations of Medreos and Eggyanos inhabitants, the results in this sense had a variant that she began to discover in various parts of her root world, as well as where the Medreos inhabitants lived; regardless of whether they were of one gender or another, both genders at birth, both in vitro and in normal pregnancies, do not have reproductive organs; their bodies were functional, to feed themselves and excrete food, but only that.
The scenario was a cry of anguish in a society depleted by the destroyed worlds, which when seeking refuge on other moons, faced a variant in the genetic code that prevented the birth of new settlers and not only those who could still reproduce with people who belonged to their own worlds, in the age enabled for it, their bodies fell into total paralysis.
Infants feared growing up because their life would be faced with paralysis, they still did not know if they would have time to reach puberty in a normal way.
Given this scenario, Vilob decided to store sperm from mature people, but the elderly women who remained active did not have eggs to be able to close the process of the test-tube children; The most chilling conclusion: They were destined to disappear.
Raudek Vilob made sure to send her reports to Barderian’s mail, every now and then he would reply with a + symbol that was his acknowledgment of receipt. They would not be seen again in life, until the moment he had to dissect Vilob’s brain to preserve her dendrites in a test tube; The last letter she sent him said:
<Dear Ingerin Barderian: My research belongs to you, you are the only one who can follow up and use it properly, share it with everyone you consider an ally and I hope your hands do not shake with the scalpel at a time to cut out my brain.
I hope I have cleared your doubts, each of the activities that you carried out is described on a separate file, at the beginning you were the most valuable incentive to show you what I suspected, later the same investigation became a powerful resource to find answers that were useful to the future that slips from our hands.
With all my love and loyal affection, go ahead, I know you will.>
Now, at what point did they both see this devastating scenario as an opportunity and not a tragedy; The answer is not simple, but it provided the answer that, without being the most desired, became the hope of many later generations in their search for habitat to preserve their culture and their valuable knowledge.
We are about to reach the scene where the lunar base awaits the third Eggyan ship and little by little we will discover that there are feats that could only occur to an adventurer of the stature of Barderian, for whom breaking protocols and imposing their rules was a matter. Every day and thanks to this, he achieved the unthinkable.
With that look bold and crooked smile that she loved to Raudek, colleagues remembered him when he talked to them:
“If you have been told that the only things can be in a way, I think twice, usually err”
