The Silmarrimis is the largest Emitis Pivotoid within the Avausim and is also the one that originated on Terra with the birth of sentience within the Humani. At first it was a mere “dream-bubble” but it was huge; it was the First Dream and it was very powerful. This is the dream of Prometheus who has since become the Sleeping Giant “Nephalimion” and the very center of the Avausim. Since its first appearance upon the Emitis it has attracted other similar dreams that have coalesced into the spinning pancake now known as the Silmarrimis. It has become the brightest, largest and most beautiful of all features within the Morfiuthelas. All other Pivotoids within the Avausim seem to appear as poorly formed copies of the Silmarrimis. They aren’t exactly so but they are smaller and less complex. An understanding of the structure of the Silmarrimis will help in understanding the structure of the other lesser Pivotoids.
At a distance viewing the Silmarrimis from the very top, it appears as a fractal spiral that slowly spins clockwise with a cloudy perimeter and more solid center. The revolution period is 10? years or about 30 Terran years. From the side of the Silmarrimis, at the edge of the Kalianos and starting at the right-hand side, is has a thin rim’s edge that is partly occluded by billions of small silvery specks which are the dream-bubbles and extends further to the left. Continuing right, the edge becomes thicker and rises slightly here and there - apparently those bumps are mountain ranges - and then turns sharply upwards into a mountainous pillar-peak at the center. That is the Nephalimion; also known as the Spire of Memories.
The coordinate system within the Silmarrimis is as follows: Spinward, Windward, Rimward, and Spireward. The strange nomenclature is because all maps are generated from the perspective of the visitor to the Silmarrimis. Things in the direction towards the mountain are “spireward”. Away is “rimward”. The clockwise direction is “spinward” and anti-clockwise is “windward”.
The Silmarrimis is subdivided into kinds of areas that are each infinite in size but finite in representation. These kinds of areas are: The Million Spheres or “Memesirim”, the Kalianos, the Kuan’sha, the Desmesnes Ar’kuar’ka, and the Desmesnes Iyesu’kas. To help measure the size of a given area, province or territory there is a universal unit of measure known as “dreamiles” equivalent to 1,000 meters. The Spire of Memories stands at about 30 dreamiles tall. The entire breadth of a typical Pivoton is about 10 dreamdays. The Silmarrimis is huge in comparison and is about 100 dreamdays in diameter.
Upon the Emitis, the collective islands of cultural thought are known as Pivotoids. These cluster into swirling “Thought Realm” systems which in turn are grouped into larger clusters known as Metacultures. A Thought Realm includes the satellite colonies of a primary Pivotoid (“Meme Host”) and float nearby upon the Emitis. If using the Earth as an example as a Meme Host, then the colonized Mars, Venus and Luna would be spinning nearby. Each spinning Pivotoid, swirling Thought Realm and Metaculture are arranged within a slowly changing and moving spiral pattern known as a the “Spirit of the Galaxy” and is given the name “Avausim”.
The Avausim has four quadrants that represent four Metacultures - extensive collectives of powerful Thought Realms. The four quadrants are the Orirdidara, the Grishtamin, the Uylinmiras, and the Penjimatin. There is a centrally located Pivotoid at the cornered union of all four Metacultures and this is the Silmarrimis. Each of the five realms - the four (4) Metacultures and the Silmarrimis - are physically represented by an intergalactic culture in the region of the Solidness known as the Milky Way galaxy. These cultures are the Galadatium Imperialis (Orirdidara Metaculture), and the (Terran) Magnalocus Solani as the Silmarrimis Pivotoid. The other intergalactic cultures are the Nalise Agem Greshan (Grishtamin Metaculture), the Gilmariish Ishatizin (Penjimatin Metaculture) and the Ballani Imperialis (Uylinmiras Metaculture).
Within each Thought Realm, the distance between Meme Hosts and between its Pivotoids depends on the inter-relation of cultural ideas (i.e.; “memes”). By extension the Meme Hosts and Pivotoids often migrate to reflect contact between two or more cultures. As the distance from the center increases as measured in dreamyears the purity of the culture’s pattern decreases. Typical distances are 1-10 dreamyears between Meme Hosts and 0.1 - 1.0 dreamyears between Pivotoids. The entire diameter of the Avausim is approximately 100,000 dreamyears.
