Emergence: Section 04 Kathy, Part 22 Childhood - Poets and Pints Reading

01 - Memory

Kathy lived in two worlds; one, her senses; two, the larger world of memory. Memory spoke to her in word and vision.

02 - Memories

There were hidden places within her; languages that no one spoke. There was love, pain, and the promise of becoming.

03 - Knowledge

Memories came unbidden; and understanding from her ancestors, deciphering events, answering questions in an instant.

04 - Knowing

The new was surreal to Kathy, like watching movies in a blurry, off-axis context; voices inside her, shaping events.

05 - Remembering

Knowing came unbidden, filling her at quantum speed; the meanings of symbols, and of histories, filtered in no-time.

06 - Understanding

Comprehension came from outside time and space; trillions of points of light drawn into the concrescence of insight.

07 - Expressing

Kathy played, sang, spoke in her own voice, sensing the multitude guiding her fingers, brushes, pen, and her tongue.
