Dream studied Zen curiously
“You know as well as I do that the nature of the journey is as much a part of the test as the actual final act of placing the mirror. Whatever powers one believes watch over us, they universally seem to want us to toil to reach the goal. We must be tested to harden us for the travails to come. I am still not entirely sure what we will find in the fovae but I do know that the potential for metaphysical harm is great and if this wild spirit is as protective of her domain as you say she is as likely an astral bouncer as any other. It may well be that there is no other way to reach your city of gold and the gateway I seek.”

Zen listens to Dream and then replies with a bit of surprise. “You see the journey is a test?”. He thinks ”Well, in a way I agree. Though, I am not sure that it is the way you describe. I do not think much of divinities, but there is the path to Nirvana and the four noble truths. In a way, anything that we do is a mean toward learning these truths and attaining Nirvana. The goals we set are just superficial… Humanity is suffering due to its own faults, and no mirror is going to change that.
Still, if we can prevent some grief from coming to this world it is best, but I cannot seem to make a link from these abstract principles about human nature to a concrete way of action. I find your resolve strangely inspiring. “February 10, 2019 at 11:52 pm #15797

Upon hearing from Zen and Dream that the plan had changed, Alyce brings her leadership group together to discus the new direction that the expedition would be taking. The change in intensity among those present could almost be felt. New orders were passed out and Alyce directed her subordinates to make sure that everyone knew that they were going to proceed into an area that seems to be the domain of a powerful spirit.
