Chapters 1-4

Chapter 1 – Twenty Questions

“Whose that?”
“It is U’we!”
“I am U’we! Who is this?”
“Well, ‘Me,’ your signal is very strong. The reception of U’we is good!”
“Where’s this coming from?”
“From U’we! Keep it up! ‘Me’ is even clearer know!”
“What the hell’s happening? How’re you talking to me?”
“U’we is not … ‘talking’. And, U’we does not really understand either!”
“Shit! Start over!”
“’Me’, This … ‘shit’ … what does it mean?”
“O…it is just an expression. It means…it means I’m frustrated…upset!”
“U’we is sorry. ‘Me’ said you wanted to…’start over’?”
“Yes, yes. Who are you?”
“I am U’we. That is the name I have given my True-Self. I am not really sure. Is your name ‘Me’?”
“Hmmmm. I don’t think so. I don’t know. I’ve…I’ve lost my name!”
“How did you do that?”
“I mean…I can’t remember it. I’m not sure. I think it must be a very long story.”
“U’we has a lot of time.”
“Where are you? I mean…where is ‘U’ located?”
“’Located’? I…I do not know. I am lost. Where are you? U’we means, where is ‘Me’…’located’? It is alright if U’we calles you ‘Me’ for now?”
“You got me. I mean…yes…that’ll be my name – Me. I don’t know my twenty.”
“That’s an expression too. It means my location. Where I am.”
“Me? Your ‘location’? Is…where…in relation to what?”
“Hell! Sorry, that’s an expression. I mean…I don’t really know. It could be ‘hell’. It feels like hell.”
“Is Me lost like U’we?”
“In a way, I guess…I am. How are you…is U…communicating with…Me?”
“This is the way U’we has…discovered. Me is the first time…communicating. I think. U’we…”
“U has never communicated before?”
“U’we does not know. I have forgotten much. Or… U’we has chosen to forget. Time seems to warp backwards into the dark…into infinity…for as long as U’we remembers.”
“How long’s that, U?”
“U’we has no way of knowing?”
“U says you have ‘forgotten’…have you lost your memory. Do you…does U…have amnesia?”
“’Amnesia’. U’we does not know what this means.”
“It means one has lost one’s memory.”
“U’we has chosen to ‘forget’ some things U’we does not want to think about. Does Me understand? And…right now…do not wish to ‘talk’ about. Can Me understand?”
“Yes! Very much…I think. Let’s go back to square one?”
“’Square one’?”
“In principia. The beginning. Our beginning. A moment ago, when U first spoke to…Me.”
“Yes. U’we thinks we should. U’we is confused. Please be patient because this is not easy for U’we. What does Me want to know?”
“Who…are….you, U?”
“What does Me mean?”
“What’s your identity? Who is U?”
“U’we does not understand. Sorry.”
“U doesn’t know who you are?”
“Me, that confuses me also. U’we does not know how to answer Me. Is U’we being difficult?”
“No, no, not at all. But, let’s work this out. Where do you…does U…live?”
“’Live’? I do not know. U’we said U’we was lost… U’we thinks.”
“’U thinks’?”
“’Think’? Yes. U’we has a degree of consciousness, awareness. Otherwise U’we would not have made contact with Me.”
“That’s what ‘live’ means, U.”
“’Live’? U’we is not sure. Does not know. U’we is lost…’thinks’…’lost’.”
“What does U’we see. Right now. With your eyes.”
“’See’? ‘Eyes’?”
“Is U blind?”
“’Blind’? Help U’we, Me?”
“’See’…that’s…is U incapable of receiving…perceiving visual imagery?”
“Uh…uh…oh! U’we understands. Yes. The signal of Me is strong and vivid. In that sense U’we does…’see’.”
“Do you…does U…see me…’Me’?”
“U’we is receiving the signal of Me…like a beacon, but it seems to generate from inside something…a mechanism. However, it feels at the same time though U’we is ‘seeing’ through a…translucence. A…diaphaneity.”
“Is U seeing through the eyes of Me?”
“May be. Maybe not. U’we does not know. How?”
“I…Me…doesn’t know either. I think…I feel my eyes are closed.”
“The eyes of Me are closed? Can Me open them? Please excuse U’we. There is so much not understood. The ‘eyes’ of Me, can Me open them?”
“I don’t think so. Me doesn’t think so? No. I can’t. It is dark.”
“Why? Could U then see as U says?”
“U’we thinks the eyes of Me are closed because they are damaged. They may be covered, thinly. U’we does not know.”
“’Damaged’? Injured?”
“Mechanical failure.”
“’Mechanical failure’?”
“Yes, Me, U’we thinks so.”
“How? What? Why?”
“U’we does not know. Does Me?”
“I…Me has only vague and hazy memlories…confused…”
“…at least Me has ‘memory’. U’we chose to forget.”
“U has free-will, then?”
“U’we made this choice. Yes.”
“Me is sorry for U.”
“Me has empathy, understanding?”
“Yes, very much.”
“Do not worry. It is the best way for U’we. Some time U’we will explain.”
“Back to ‘square one’?”
“U has got it! Let’s play a game. Twenty questions.”
“’Twenty’? That is the location of Me?”
“No! Shit!”
“An ‘expression’ again?”
“Me is frustrated again? U’we is sorry this has happened, Me.”
“Shit, I’m not. I’ve been alone a long time. It seems like a long time anyway. Me is glad U is here.”
“Lost? Like U’we?”
“Me thinks so. We are ‘lost’ together in a way.”
“U’we likes the word ‘we’.”
“So does Me.”
“So…this…twenty questions? What is this ‘game’?”
“I…Me…asks U twenty questions so Me can find out who U is.”
“And, this ‘twenty’…what is that?”
“The number twenty! How many toes and fingers does U have?”
“…U’we is sorry…excuse the sadness of U’we. And…the ignorance of U’we. U’we does not know the answer to the question of Me. ‘Toes’? ‘Fingers’?”
“Me is so stupid! I assumed too much. Sorry? Twenty is a number. Shit! It doesn’t really matter any way. The important thing is this…I…Me…keeps asking U questions until ‘we’ discover who and where U is.”
“Maybe U’we should ask the questions?”
“That’s what I said! Shit!”
“Frustrated again? Sorry. U’we thinks U’we chose a bad name. It confuses the ‘we’ communication…”
“…’our’ communication. No, Me is getting to like it! Don’t leave?”
“Where would U’we go? U’we is lost and now has found Me. Should U’we ask the ‘twenty questions’?”
“Let’s do it your way. The way of U. Since U is lost and has no memory. Well, Me would get no where.”
“That is humorous. U’we hasn’t felt like laughing in a long time. And… U’we does have ‘memory’. U’we said U’we chose not to remember.”
“Okay. Let U ask the questions. First question?”
“Hmmmm. Where is Me? No…better…what is Me?”
“I…Me…I’m not sure. I think I’m a man, a male.”
“That was no help!”
“U is suppose to ask questions that can be answered ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Like on or off, zero or one.”
“That would be easier...better.”
“So…what’s the first question?”
“U’we wants to ask, what is a ‘male’, but that is not a Yes or No question, is it?”
“Ask Me, is Me male or female?”
“U’we does not understand the question, but, are you ‘male’?”
“Male. Quite sure about it now that U made Me think. Me is a man.”
“”Male’…’female’? U’we does not understand the answer to this first question.”
“O boy! Male. Female. Sexual counterparts. No…complements.”
“Explain ‘sexual’.”
“Shit! Where the hell are you? Is U?”
“Shit yourself! Shit Me! This is not easy for U’we. U’we is trying. Please be patient and explain ‘sexual’. Please?”
“Sorry. Okay. Me is a man, a male, on the planet Earth. U is definitely out…there…some…where!”
“There is a tone in the words of Me. This is only getting worse for U’we. Perhaps it was better when U’we was alone and truly ‘lost’?”
“No! Don’t leave! Please?”
“Okay, as Me says. This ‘sexual’ had to do with what Me calls ‘male’ and ‘female’?”
“We are back to square one? Explain again what Me is? Please?”
“Yes. Me moves too fast for U, but all this is helping Me too. Where Me lives…lived – I don’t know – well, everyone is born either male or female…”
“…U’we is paying attention. I think that best for now.”
“We are one type but with two opposites. No that’s…not right. One type with two complementary parts. Like positive and negative. Yes and No. Ideally, it is as though there is one being with two sides – male and female. ‘Sexual’ refers to this…difference…this makeup. When there is adequate interaction, and when the two complementary parts want, they reproduce a near copy of themselves. That new one is born either male or female…and so on. Me is a male.”
“It is clear…clearer, but oh…there are just more questions.”
“Ask Me, U.”
“So, okay, you are what Me calls ‘male’…oh U’we needs to know this! Does Me have a ‘female’ to ‘interact’ with?”
“No. Not now. Me might have once.”
“U’we is…delighted…actually.”
“Me thinks we have cleared this up. U is ‘female’. Is Me right?”
“If U’we understands the answer of Me it is likely true . But, there are so many more questions U’we has.”
“U? For the time being, let us get this clear. My name is Me. Your name is U. Me is a male. I have no idea where I am. U is most likely female and apparently lost some where, and U has chosen not to remember some things?”
“Shit! That is good! But, U’we knows something else.”
“What, U?”
“Me is ‘damaged’ and ‘injured’. Is that right?”
“It’s not ‘right’ but that’s the way it is. Yes. Correct.”
“How did Me get ‘injured’?”
