A story of evolution and the spirit of life.

Swimmer, Swim 

(Nager se Trouver)
 
 
  
Primordial ocean, awash with turbulence wreaked by incessant solar winds, volatile nitro-ox, electric discharge, chameleon carbon and convulsive macroseism, swells to lunar caprice. Subaqueous yawn spews subterranean quarks into the briny broth. Temperature fluctuations. Swim Being awakes within the sifting elementary depository and divides.
 
Oxygen filters through the deluge diluting the hydra, taming it to its crotchet. Swim Being thirsts. Determined mobility sends forth microscopic bacterial vibrissae, pitching with the sway of the current. Swim Being feeds upon Herself, waxing Her fecundity.
 
Euphoric utility embe ds fancy; matter identity concocts instinctual gregarious drive, unbedding Swim Being from Her spawning sands. Undeterred kinetics, thalasmic freedom annexes the Cartesian y-axis to Swim Being’s syllabus. Granular confinement is superfluous, water yields amalgamation. Virility and curiosity set Swim Being adrift, expanding into substantial vassals, reconnaissance is accessible.
 
Arctic ague and hyaline equatorial sweltering are not beyond Swim Being’s latitudes. She becomes the grand architect-engineer, fashions the oceans upon whimsy, ravishing the environs more extensively than submarine temblors and She does not beck to the rapine upheavals. Swim Being’s extensions take on singular pretentiousness from ostentatious conical cataclysts that rove demonically through the brine to imperial foliaged quiescent grandeur that defy the elements’ coercion.
 
Yet a pervading idée fixe of forlorn beleagurement obsesses Her. Within the seas, there is only water, stone and Swim Being’s sundry of rife incarnations. A passion akin to fealty spurs exploration and the auspicious contingency of gratification found within Another. Swim Being clammers out of the hydrosphere.
 
The foray onto terra firma is conducted in gradual increments, each phase a prerequisite for the next. First, the microbiotic myrmidons to infest the craggy rockbase with fertility. Then, the revolutionary flora to dispel oxygen into the noxious, alien atmosphere transforming it into a defense shield against malignant stellar forces too ardent to arrest Swim Being’s evolution into Terran Being. The ozone serves to domesticate the extreme thermal oscillation that had preponderated upon the continental surfaces.
 
The parade of Swim Being’s multitudinous manifestations maturate the barren wastelands into forest and menagerie. Versatility enhances versatility in the swimmers of the air. Arctic ague and tropical equatorial sweltering are not beyond Swim Being’s latitudes. She becomes the grand architect-engineer, fashioning the terrestrial geosphere upon whimsy, ravishing the environs more extensively than subterranean temblors and She does not beck to these rapine upheavals. Swim Being comes to consciousness through reflection and aspiration upon the earth. Terra becomes Swim Being but exalted fidelity finds no companion here. Land is as devoid of contact as the brine.
 
Through accelerated mammalian applied utilitarianism, Swim Being ventures forth and rebukes gravitational forces in favor of swimming the ether. Limits become limitless, platitudes become platitudeless, earthly becomes gawdy. Her scheme of things do not apply, are not pertinent to astrochemistry where the atoms are spaced far apart. There is nothing to draw against to propel Her forward. Yet Swim Being swims on fortudinous determination alone within conditions that are a bravado to Her essence.
 
Within the heavens, She travels far and wide. Temporal constructs are shattered, ubiquity forms the mainstream. Spatial senses are mutated; Swim Being cancels the Cartesian planes so vital to reconnoitering Her nativity place.
 
Through the ramblings that essay to distort fanciful romanticism into arduous futility, Swim Being remains steadfast in Her search. Determinism begets outcomes. In a region that is a region in itself, in a time not governed by the wily ordinal demands of past, present and future, Swim Being embraces Volant Vitality, Who too was a ferret of the firmament questing to find a companion.
 
Universal brotherhood, cosmic siblinghood. Swimming and flying. Being.

Being able to read this confounding and profound write is to me able to get in touch with yourself. The storyteller on the Lake did it again. Words worth reading and learning and teaching us too about the universe. Thanks, it is an interesting story, I enjoyed it.
