Daryl and Moby were walking for some time along dirt roads before they came upon this little farm. We selected this segment because it was the most action-packed few minutes of the entire surveillance. When the two boys discovered the farm, they also happened upon a Dismantler. Daryl tried to fight the Dismantler but it simply swallowed his arm.
This is when Cindy showed up, after running away from the Dismantler when it pushed Ace into that hole (see previous blog) and threw some rocks at it. However, it seems what Moby had been doing quietly on the side throughout this drama was what made the difference. What does it mean, that he built a tower of rocks?
“Seems Quite Old”
At the beginning of this segment, Moby states that the building “seems quite old.” Any experienced time traveler or student of the Eyes will acknowledge that this actually means that it is new. (Old things weren’t old when they were made!) Indeed, our temporal positioning has this event taking place at around 1999.
However, as all experienced time travelers will also acknowledge: Sometimes time ignores the date. Old and new become one within the cauldron of essences that is our dimension, and emerge as history (aka The Continuum). Many of our Eye-test scenarios conducted New Mexico emphasize this mind-boggling reality. Indeed, abiding the present moment in that multilayered desert has afforded us some of the more valuable glimpses into the Continuum in that thin place than any Eye-devices could.
So Moby may be noticing old things aging, but he may also may be noticing ancient things becoming new.
An Artist, a Dismantler
The incongruous, date-ignoring nature of time does not usually happen in the natural world, however. The natural evolution of a dimension prefers to unfold along a path of least resistance, which makes its mutations few and far between. Self-aware beings like ourselves, who are more accommodating to resistance, frequently cause aberrations in our Continuum. Few are more aberrant than the self-aware creators. Artists, as we call them, actually manufacture resistance and invite mutations upon our reality.
This house belongs to an artist, to one of the group who helped to establish the Abiquiu Studio Tour. Here the Dismantler must have been attracted to the house because of how the artist was coagulating components of the Continuum. Like a fly to a wound, this place held the greatest concentration of our dimensional material.
Let’s leave aside the shocking nature of the Dismantler’s attack for a future blog. We have been attacked, and this is important. But more important, we have found a method to ‘fight’ them and this method should be discussed first.
We put ‘fight’ in quotes because this method is a contradiction of that term. Daryl and Cindy attacked the Dismantler in the conventional way: With fists, by throwing rocks. But Moby, in a stroke of inspiration, collected the rocks around the artist’s house and built them up. This simple act was enough to banish the Dismantler (although apparently not enough to defeat it).
What is it about this inspired assemblage that causes this creature to turn back? Paradoxically, Moby is acting like an artist here, and an artist’s aberrations were exactly what attracted the Dismantler to the house in the first place. Could it be that the act of creation something that can protect us from the Schism, yet the creation itself leaves us vulnerable?
