Polly don't need no cracker
The Real Story of Zoe & the Persnicket
Some believe and some don’t. But I know. I’ll confess from the get go that kidnapping might have been a bit strong. There was no real evidence or reason to think she was actually taken against her will. And the idea that a tiny bug could make her go does seem incredulous.
But, that said, she was an orphan girl, and she was seen talking to what certainly seemed to be a small bug just before she disappeared. And that, my friend, is accurate. I saw it. That’s why I told that story those several years ago, and I stand by it now.
If there have been other tales told than I don’t guess it’s my job to say if they did or didn’t really happen. I told what I knew and I might well choose differently if I had it to do over. It was pretty much the start of the curiosity and the end of my peace and quiet. If I don’t just tell the whole story I know, it might be the end of my sanity too.
Anyway, I’m not saying anyone has to believe it. I know it happened, and that’s enough for me.
I share it simply because it’s an amazing story of possibilities, and I hope it may enlighten others, as it did me.
There is something you have to know, or at least have some faith in, to ever accept this story even could happen. It took me a while to get my head around it, until Wegamon (you’ll meet him later) compared the concept to radio or television.
Those signals, all those various stations, are all there around us constantly, though unseen. We assign each a particular frequency to operate in so we can use that invisible space. This infinite space just is, and we devise ways to operate within it by utilizing the frequency’s particular attributes to serve us.
Now, consider this. All our world, everything we know, the entire cosmos of our perception, travels, functions, and activities exist within a specific bandwidth. A frequency range. And...
“Other entire universes are organized the same way, placed within their own bandwidth and operating at their own set frequencies. AND, it is possible to ride the ‘ether waves’ between these universes!”
I Know, right! It kind of staggers the mind, but that’s the way things are. Once you have ridden across realities, nothing seems impossible again.
Anyway, it was, and is, to one of these other worlds that our local orphan girl truly belongs. She was only hidden here in our world, on our earth, to protect her until such times were accomplished on her world that she could, and in fact must, return.
I don’t regret a single moment of the journey. I only hope you keep your mind open on the adventure..
Oh, and keep your hands in your pockets.
There’s no way to get started except to get started, so let me tell you a little about when Zoe was young, and yet in this world.
Better yet, her diary can explain it better than I could.
Zoe had indeed a grand day on that first entry to her journal. Much grander than she knew! Bugar would indeed prove to be important, but perhaps even more so was this spark of enlightenment. What spark you may ask? The Ladybug of course. This was not the first time it visited, nor the first time Zoe saw it. But, it was the first time they had merged. It has a name. The name is Tiffen!
