They are aware of nothing. Not movement, even though they exist within a stream of photons traveling at the speed of light. Not thought, even though they contain among them all the knowledge that can be known.
They are One, Chroma.
Fundamental aspect B4 is the manifestation of the electromagnetic range known as Indigo and a frequency of the musical tone B at the fourth octave of human perception, 493.883 Hertz. An embodiment of curiosity and intuition, she separates from her fellow Aspects to pursue answers.
Then they are not One.
A world of physical existence unfolds before B4 as she explores a blue planet and its cycles of life, beautiful forms already ancient in their traditions of birth, life, and death. Delving into the oceans, she watches in wonder as creatures flash past. What would it mean to experience that kind of physical existence?
In wolf, she and her harmonic companion F369.994 Yellow taste the pleasure of mating. Couldn’t they continue forever chasing pronghorn, nestling together in their den as snow fills the valleys? What tragic twist of fate awaits them not only in wolf but in multiple other embodiments?
Thus begins a saga of discovery—of consciousness, of being, of life. A love story that spans millennia. A mystery of the ages.
Step into the evolutionary continuum in this alternate history of humanity. Based firmly on scientific fact yet wholly unexpected and original, the story of B4 explores the enigma of existence.
Author’s Note: This story line grew in my imagination for over twenty years before it came into print. It’s difficult to portray characters that don’t have form except colored light and musical wavelengths, and I admit to hair-ripping struggle to address that problem. I see this story as the logical conclusion to a disparate collection of archaeological evidence, evolution, and the inevitable quest of each human to seek answers of origin. What is the mystery and why are we compelled to see kits answer?
Some readers have complained at the complexity of Aspect names being a confusion of numbers and decimals. In fact, one reader said it reminded her of the Dewey decimal system.Just to clarify, the numbers correspond to sound waves as measured in Hertz. The note “A” in the middle octave of a piano keyboard is described scientifically as 440 Hz, or 440 cycles per second. One octave lower is half that number, or 220 Hz.
