Structure of the Morfiuthelas
The Morfiuthelas is composed of four symbolic planes of existence that extend towards infinity and are arranged as layers diving the Morfiuthelas into two infinite regions. The first symbolic plane is the Field of Lights or “Pilanilusar” which is oriented upside-down. The next is the Emitis which contains collections of Pivotoids that comprise the Avausim or “Spirit of the Galaxy” and is oriented facing the Pilanilusar. Attached to is very underside is another “upside-down” plane known as the Alternatus which is separated itself by the Zone of Ambivalence and mirrors somewhat the position of each Pivotoid upon the Emitis. And lastly, facing upwards to that is the Great Emptiness also known as “Kiberdimon”.
On the symbolic plane that is the Emitis, the most important structure is that immense collection of dreams that comprise the Avausim or “Spirit of the Galaxy”. Its appearance is that of a spiral mandragora; an angular pattern of thorns and sweeping curves. The Avausim itself is divided into four quadrants of competing memes known as Metacultures. Each of these are comprised of smaller collections of dreams known Pivotoids. The most important Pivotoid is that of the Silmarrimis because this is where the Nephalimion - the progenitor of the Sum of Man - resides.
Absurdity at its most with rubbery cartoon-characters. Where the Avausim represents the dreams and beliefs of the adults; the Alternatus represents the dream collectives of children. There are monsters as well as strange-looking sentients; invisible friends, fuzzy-smileys, boogie monsters, commercial toys, animation characters and towering adults. Here, it is a child’s “incomplete knowledge of logical laws” or illogic, and humor that take precedence over logic and drama. There exists no tradition save voluntary death for none die here unless it happens to be funny. Light is in accordance to what is desired or needed to convey ideas. The physical layout of the Alternatus is exactly the underside of the Avausim.
Also known as “The Emptiness” or “Cyberspace”. The symbolic plane appears structured but in a chaotic-fractal sort of way. It shows all of the networks within the galaxy with its neon glows and pulses of cyberlight, vector and raster-graphics beings. Actual internet cybersites appear here as represented if using I-mail. There exists many black pillars of silicon, towers of crystal and forests of optical fiberglass bundles. There is no wind and there are very few denizens in the wandering in the twilight. Travelers to the Kiberdimon will “translate” into their exotic electron compliment and back again after leaving.
The floor is satin black with pearls of light and covered mostly with several meters deep water. The temperature is warm and inviting and the land is nearly dark with a prismatic haze for the sky above. When viewed from the Avausim this plane appears as a star-filled night sky. The patterned arrangement of the lights corresponds to the Avausim below in a powdery fractal display. Beyond the perimeter of the Avausim it appears like simple, minimized white-noise. Very few creatures live here and no sentient beings; most are fishes since the surface of the majority is drinkable water. Once every year, the jacket that is the Pilanilusar is alit with the plasmatic nova bursts from the millions of Pivotoids below as their central spike-mountains shoot and release their energies in one intense explosion. The contact spills about and fragments into trillions of balls of light that scatter them. Many soon fade and pile-up to become darks hills out of the water but some remain as miniature pearls of light.
Time and Distance
It is possible to travel from the Emitis to the Pilanilusar by flying upwards; its distance is 1 dreamyear. A dreamyear is approximately 365,243 dreamiles or 365 dreamdays. A dreamile is about 1,000 meters in length and there are 1,000 dreamiles to 1 dreamday. A dreamday is the distance traveled within the Morfiuthelas after dreaming for 24 Terran hours. It is possible to travel from the Alternatus to the Kiberdimon by flying “downwards”; its distance is also 1 dream year. It is possible to travel from the upright plane of the Emitis to the underside plane of the Alternatus by different methods; digging a hole, flying about the edge of the Zone of Ambivalence and going under, or using a magic portal of some sort. To travel from the Kiberdimon to the Pilanilusar will take 2 dreamyears.
