Medical – Thalian Radiation Infection

NOTE:  A physical is mandatory for every newcomer to Tantria. Thalians can’t risk any form of infection spreading citywide. The cloaking aura energy field has a simple form of decontamination, as well as all the elevators. All exists from the entrance chamber have stronger decon sensors for about 20 feet on both sides of the sliding doors. If there’s a problem an alarm is triggered on the medical level and brings down a force-field to contain the contaminant. All those within the force-field are given a ‘physical from hell’.

RADIATION VIRAL INFECTIONS

In May 1982 the breakthrough came when it was discovered that continued thinning of the earth’s ozone layer, and in some areas the complete disintegration, allowed deadly radiation to penetrate earth’s atmosphere.

Unaware, Thalians’ were exposed over a four-year period (1976-1980) to radiation buildup that caused a viral infection that went undetected. Some of the colonists started getting ill in 1978, just respiratory problems to begin with. By the end of 1981 all 32 original on-land colonists and craftsmen were dead. Priority research was underway to build up Thalian resistance to the atmosphere.

Ozone layer could mend itself if the humans would just stop poisoning the air!

Those picked for the original on-land colony were vaccinated against every known bacterial and viral infection ever recorded in human history. The cause of infection: humans through ignorance and apathy gradually damaged the protective layer around the earth and did nothing to stop it. Now the humans are at risk as well. No longer totally shielded from harmful space radiation they struggle against a losing battle to overcome tougher forms of cancers and mutating bacterial and viral strains. All more deadly with each passing year.

The loss of the original Thalian colonists was devastating. Many Thalians and human helpers needed help recovering. Some simply required a long rest and therapy while others just couldn’t deal with it. Eventually a handful had memory blocks implanted to suppress all memories of pain and loss of the deaths.

Should Damon become unconscious while above the cloaking field would collapse allowing the virus to begin cell erosion, eventually leading to fatal infection. Skin cell erosion does begin within moments of exposure but is not, in itself, fatal or noticeable unless studied under a microscope. It is unknown the amount of exposure required to degenerate cell structure to a fatal state. Tests using Thalian skin cell samples above were inconclusive. Detailed records for the original 32 on-land colonists and town craftsmen showed no set life duration once individual was conclusively infected. Data supported the theory that life expectancy depended on each individual’s strength and stamina.

Since not one of the 32 individuals plus the craftsmen survived beyond a one-year period after onset of initial respiratory problems, any future infections should be considered fatal within that time period. Without live testing, isolating the exact point that exposure becomes fatal is not possible.

Damon is accidentally exposed for several seconds during an argument with Debra before she can channel another protective aura around him; tests are run every week for two months to make sure his body has not become infected.

Conclusion:  Several seconds’ exposure to atmosphere is not fatal for Damon. For someone else the results might not be the same.

BLACK RAGE: (Shari’s Syndrome) a brutal genetic disorder that all of the original bi-children face at the onset of puberty; is unpredictable, uncontrollable, and eventually lethal to the victim. Named for the first victim, Shari Logan.

Some of the physical symptoms: headache between eyes that expands, radiating stabbing pain and burning heat from behind eyes. For Debra, all her abilities, all her impressive powers to self-heal are nonexistent against the ravages of the rage. Neck muscles lose strength to hold the head up. Copious sweating. Obvious blood drain from skin surface, pooling protectively around vital organs.

Rapid eye flutter and veins and capillaries eventually fill with blood making the eyes appear demonic red. Compounding seizures attack motor and sensory nerves, choking mobility one vertebra at a time. Weakened muscles and tendons twist, heave, shudder beneath superconducting electrically charged skin.

For Debra, her lethal defenses kick in automatically to protect her while she’s incapacitated. Air particles in a four-foot radius around her become charged with the kinetic energy radiating from her, discharging like tiny fireflies. The condensed atmosphere heaves and swirls into a whirling mayhem of air transformed into powerful, ongoing gusts of wind. Objects move, fly, bend, etc.  Charged energy dances in stunning blue arcs over anything metal.

Side Note: eventual cure, in the sense of stopping Shari’s syndrome before it gets fully involved is discovered by accident between Debra and Edith.

Meditation globe influence is instant when globe is less than a couple of inches from Debra’s face–crystal’s flame penetrates the sensitive layers of blood-filled retinas. Immediately the blue radiance breaches tissue and cells of the eyes, brain, and spinal column spreading its calming emptying influence throughout the body. Engorged blood vessels contract to normal slowly clearing the eyes. Failed nerve pathways resume natural conduction stemming muscular seizures and convulsions. Breathing, heart rate, and paranormal functions lapse into cataleptic exhaustion allowing Debra’s autonomic self-healing to repair internal trauma.

Original prognosis: investigational tests to control or reverse Shari’s Syndrome (black rage) using the mind altering affects of the mediation globe failed.

New Prognosis:  Distance of globe to subject’s eyes critical; an inch, two at the most, from the eyes otherwise penetration of blood engorged retinas not possible. Spontaneous test subject: Debra. Edith inadvertently holds meditation globe less than two inches from Debra’s eyes; penetration instantaneous.

Conclusion: black rage not stopped in previous subjects using globe. Standard penetration distance used not strong enough to infiltrate engorged retinas.

BI-FETAL DEGENERATIVE SYNDROM: a genetic mutation affecting second generation bi-children; from the onset of birth, cells begin to deteriorate slowly, eventually affecting every system in the child’s body, suffering complete shutdown and death by the fifth to seventh year. Currently no cure. Currently no child has lived to reach puberty.

THALIAN-HUMAN PROPAGATION PROGRAM:  designed to fully immunize bi-children (half Thalian/half human) to earth’s atmosphere. All embryos genetically altered for female births only.

Purpose of blending DNA is to produce the most optimal children possible to perpetuate as many positive traits from both species.

Thalian DNA dominates. When trying to blend the two species, the easiest is combining human female and Thalian male. Thalian female DNA simply overpowers human male DNA to the point of altering sequencing and cell abnormalities.

The risk of defects is high throughout entire gestation, even with monitoring as shown in simulation reports. All live embryos terminated by end of first trimester. T-female to H-male considered too dangerous at this time. No further tests conducted.

1st generation:  human mother, Thalian father

2nd generation:  bi-human mother, Thalian father

Phase One:  successful –50 (half human, half Thalian) female children born on-land and able to live above. Integrating two different species caused a skewing in the genetic makeup, but that was to be expected. Thalian half of the psyche is buried in the subconscious to prevent knowledge of alien existence from leaking out until awakened at appropriate time. What wasn’t expected was the brutal emotional imbalance at the onset of puberty (Shari’s Syndrome)–a condition that worsens in individual after delivering their own child. Every test and treatment has been tried with no results.

Of the original 50 full-grown women, 49 are currently dead (by accident or suicide).  Debra is the last of the first generation children alive.  Debra is much stronger mentally, emotionally than her sisters. A possible advantage: virus-infected father. More tests to prove or disprove once Debra is available for blood work and analysis.

Emotional Trials:  1. a black rage (as Debra calls it) can kill the individual and/or caregiver and takes days to recover from. Thalians call it Shari’s Syndrome for the first bi-human to experience the devastating physical effects upon reaching puberty: extreme convulsing, severe nerve pathway disruption, higher mental ability malfunction, no cognitive skills or control during seizure, no ability to predict or prevent occurrence, unresponsive to medication or hypnosis, can last one to five days but normally only one or two days, usually fatal if an episode lasts four or more days. A one or two day seizure usually takes 3 or 4 days to recover from. Symptoms become worse after subject encounters childbirth. Debra is the last of the original 50 bi-humans. Excluding those who died by accident, all of the remaining succumbed or died by suicide due to the extreme incapacitating effects of Shari’s Syndrome.

While growing up, their abilities usually become apparent at awkward times and are difficult to explain, let alone control. Family members either encourage or condemn, but are more often battling amongst themselves for the right of control over a perceived devil, with friendships discouraged and neighbors uncertain or afraid. Most grow up with fear, anger, and isolation from playmates. Many times a good day is having thoughts of suicide, a way out, as a means of lightening the stress for a little while.

Phase Two: (incomplete) — 23 (one-quarter human and three-quarter Thalian) female children born alive in underwater city. 6 female stillbirths (4 above, 2 below); 5 females with bi-human mother/human father, died above from infancy respiratory failure. No further inseminations for three-quarter human, one-quarter Thalian were tried for births below due to the extremely weak physical condition of previous children born above. Mind-link indicated minimum to no psychic ability in these children.

Normal gestation period for a Thalian female is seven months. All first generation bi-human females have also gestated for seven months to deliver healthy babies in spite of the degenerative syndrome.

Genetic research indicates second generation children appear to be free of the emotional imbalance; however, this can’t be confirmed since none have lived to puberty. These children are highly intelligent and brilliantly gifted psychically.

In first weeks of cell division their genetic makeup goes beyond skewed into a form of mutation that starts killing cells from the moment of birth until there’s not enough new cell regeneration to sustain life, approximately five to seven years, depending on the child’s health and stamina.

NOTE: tests indicate that while still in the placenta, receiving ongoing blood transfusion from the mother through the umbilical cord, the unborn child has a temporary immunity to cell degeneration. Yet after birth, manual blood transfusions from the mother have no effect/immunity on cell degeneration in the child.

Work continues night and day in research to find a cure.

Medical – Psychic Abilities

Filed under: Medical — cnwood @ 8:57 am
Tags: , ,

(Present in all Thalians, Bi-humans, and Humans with ESP to a much lesser extent. Only Debra and Damon have all abilities and unmatched mental strength. Others have a mixture of abilities and mental strength)

ADRENALINE SURGE:  Debra can feel it flowing in her veins; focuses mind and body into a deceptive stillness; increases strength, clarity, agility, concentration. Whenever present, adrenaline places Debra’s mind and body in a warrior mode.

BODY TRANSCENDING:  Out of body existence is extremely dangerous and life threatening. Should the essence of an immortal not return to the physical body within 7 days, the current life experiences and journey home would be forfeit as though self-termination had been inflicted. Unless taken by old age or inoperable disease, the body can remain alive indefinitely with medical care. But without a residing immortal to guide the body, it’s nothing but an empty shell.

Immortal beings face only one forbidden choice as physical entities–suicide, the taking of one’s own life except those born unaware with extreme mental retardation.

A suicide is denied the comfort and replenishment of home before returning to earth to serve another existence of adversity and endurance.

Most humans have no memories of home and immortality and have no higher psychic ability to channel the truth. Stripped of home’s enlightenment means existing completely at the mercy of human or physical frailties and ignorance; an existence without uplifting faith when life pulls you under.

BONDING:  (marriage) generally, bonding is more than setting up house together. A permanent link is forged between the couple and a subtle blending or melding of the mind and body occurs on their first journey to the Heart of the Talisman.

Normally a gift (usually a crystal pendant necklace) is given and received as a testament to love and commitment between the couple.

The Heart is a non-physical place that resides in the immortal psyche. Once there, the couple is bonded. The couple now has the capacity to know when the other is hurt or needs help; they have access to each other’s thoughts and emotions unless the mind is fully closed.

CHANNELLING:  described as an aggressive form of kinetic energy that can be manipulated physically and mentally.

All Thalians, whether hybrid or not, have the ability to channel, e.g. creating cloaking aura for protection above; manipulating intensity to merely render someone unconscious or serious burns and hemorrhaging or to kill.

Less than one-quarter percent of Thalia’s entire population of millions has the mental strength to make channeled energy lethal.

Occasional accidents happen usually with children and sometimes teenagers. Since being born with abilities is much like a person’s characteristics, moods, emotions, temperament, everything is all connected. So it’s normal to have psychic abilities responding to how an individual feels or perceives conditions around them. Young Thalians train to better understand their abilities and the intellect that’s needed for control over their actions and reactions–just like all living beings have to learn how to control themselves to live peacefully with other beings.

CLAIRVOYANCE:  ability to see objects or actions beyond the range of natural vision or senses.

CONTROL MEDIATION (Debra):  Uses a form of mediation to regain control when afraid or feeling hurt by another–focuses on her heartbeat and slows her breathing and the blood flowing through her veins, relaxes the tightness of traumatized skin and the muscles and nerve-endings beneath until all trembling stops. The world around her becomes hush and decelerates into one perfect moment, until all that remains is a deliberate, relentless beat of her own heart, making her clear headed, unemotional, back in control–the warrior in her has returned.

DREAM WORLD LINK:  Only Damon and Debra are able to create the dream world; a connection since they were babies; one that many tried to duplicate without success. As a child growing up Damon underwent thousands of probing tests in the lab to find out why he could link with Debra; tried and failed to link with others, etc. Their minds are able to find each other across a continent and together they created the dream world as a playground, a sanctuary, a lover’s haven to help keep them strong. Because of parental bonding, Damon was aware that the dream world wasn’t real and that Debra was participating only on an unconscious level. Debra grew up thinking it was some kind of parallel dimension.

EMPATHIC:  ability to feel another’s feelings, moods, emotions.

GRAND MASTER:  someone who has excelled over all other Masters in that field.

KILLING POWER (Channeling):  Is actually kinetic energy channeled through the body to create an energy field to use as a cloaking aura or highly focused in a concussive burst that can disable or kill.

Thalians control the density of the field, the brightness, the area covered, or the power intensity. All Thalians have the ability to channel energy, but only a very small percentage has the strength to kill (i.e. Damon, Debra, Eron, Manton, Rowan, etc.)

Should Damon become unconscious while above the cloaking field would collapse allowing the virus to begin cell erosion, leading to fatal infection. Skin cell erosion does begin within moments of exposure but is not, in itself, fatal. It is unknown the amount of exposure required to degenerate cell structure to a fatal state.

“Withdrawal” comes when the adrenaline surge has worn off and Debra starts to feel the side affects of channeling. To overcome that problem, the more practice she has with her higher abilities the better the body can handle abrupt fluctuations in pressure and energy. Also some suppression tricks available–simple breathing, acupressure maneuvers–to help ease the adrenaline withdrawal.

MASTER:  someone who’s an expert at evaluating, teaching, and guiding in their respective field.

MIND LINK:  retaining normal levels of closure, warning instincts sound first in the mind as the linking mind gently breaches protective barriers like a silent whispery shadow.  The intrusion is blatant and noticeably felt throughout as though the body is sensing invasion from a foreign ethereal substance. Once the linking mind is fully entrenched like some disembodied intellect, a probing of thoughts, emotions, and images takes place.  At all times protocols of conduct are followed and if disregarded in any way is considered a violation–a serious charge requiring re-evaluation, reparation to the individual or family, and several hours of study through a meld with council of elders.

MIND CLOSURE:  Manipulating and maintaining the various levels of mind closure (blocking the mind to intrusion) is the first thing a Thalian baby is taught (through the parental bonding link). Each child learns a certain amount of closure is needed at all times to hold in what is personal and keep out daily noise, especially on a planet of non-telepaths. The child learns from example by linking minds with their parents, a form of joining that starts in the womb and continues after birth (parental bonding). Once the child learns control over the levels of mind closure, not even the parents can intrude if the child chooses to fully close.

MIND JOINING OR MELDING:  a shared basic melding of minds is based on the same principles as linking except all parties involved have access to allow thoughts, emotions, and images from participating minds.

MIND-SIGHT:  also known as the Sight (Debra must brace herself for the impact of the images that flood her mind). Through contact of hand to any object, has the ability to see in great detail beyond her physical eyesight, bird’s-eyes view, or to see through objects.

MIND SUPPRESSOR:  by mind meld, a mental barrier (undetectable by host) used to bury or suppress information in the subconscious.

MYSTIC:  a physical being with all of an immortal being’s knowledge and power from home. No actual recorded cases, just rumor and speculation like a myth passed down through the generations.

PARENTAL BONDING:  is a parent/child link that starts in the womb and continues after birth that acts as a form of subliminal guidance and training until the child is old enough to suppress parental bonding and begin formal psychic education as an individual.

PSYCHIC APTITUDE TESTING:  normally performed by a master or grand master in the field of psychic education with the unique ability to sense conscious and subconscious brain functions and the potential within. Doesn’t hurt, doesn’t take long.

Takes about an hour–examination of physical brain matter, pathways, and basic characteristics and abilities individual born with–DOES NOT require a mind link.

Second part of exam does require a link–to see any underlying problems such as emotional impairments, mental blocks, even the inability to handle the power individual was born with.

All that knowledge allows Eron (Master of Psychic Education and an Elder on the city’s council) to make recommendations for the most compatible choice available to individual. Eron matches characteristics and psychic potential with future vocations that provide challenge and contentment for individual and an invaluable resource for Thalian nation.

Every Thalian goes through testing and evaluation before puberty, some as early as six or seven.

PROECTIVE BLOCKING (also known as MIND CLOSURE)sets up parameters that blocks what you want and allows through what you want; don’t have to be fully blocked to be protected from thoughts of others, to stop someone from probing.

Imagine a solid barrier in your mind. Now reduce the solidity of that barrier a little at a time until your higher senses can see through but nothing else can get in. No stray thoughts or emotions coming in or getting out. Now you’re protected, not blind. The remaining barrier is still sensitive and strong enough that no one can just waltz into your mind without getting a figurative door slammed in their face. Not to mention one hell of a headache.

PYROKINETICIST:  ability to start fires using the mind.

TELEKINESIS:  ability to move or deform inanimate objects mentally (psychokinesis).

TELEPATHY:  communication between minds without verbally speaking (sensory perception).

TELEPORT:  to transport (a body) by telekinesis.

TELESTHESIA:  a sensibility to sights, sounds, etc., that are beyond the range of the sense organs, as in clairvoyance.

TOUCH-HEALER:  these individuals can feel the pulse at the back of another’s neck–the body’s normal electrical pulse that travels up and down the spinal column from the brain. Rowan calls it a biological lie detector as it works on the same principle as the mechanical detector. Instead of reading the symptoms of a person lying, a touch-healer can feel the spasms in the electrical pulses that initiate those physical symptoms with absolute accuracy.

A touch-healer’s main skill is the ability to touch another, zero in on the injured or diseased area and begin regeneration of the damage. A strong healer will be able to contain and regenerate until healing is complete.

An empathic touch-healer has the same skills but with the added ability to transfer pain or symptoms to their own body, almost instantaneously healing the patient, while healing themselves internally at a much faster rate.

VION:  exceptionally powerful psychics. On Thalia such gifted people were called Vions and thought to be one evolutionary step away from becoming a Mystic.

ADRENALINE SURGE:  Debra can feel it flowing in her veins; focuses mind and body into a deceptive stillness; increases strength, clarity, agility, concentration. Whenever present, adrenaline places Debra’s mind and body in a warrior mode.

AWAKENING AT AGE 25:  Thalian and human research confirmed the female body is at peak for pregnancy and offers the best chance for conception and healthy birth. The human female is also mature enough to understand and accept her Thalian heritage that is revealed.

BiFETAL DEGENERATIVE SYNDROM: a generational genetic mutation affecting second generation bi-children–from the onset of birth, cells begin to deteriorate slowly, eventually affecting every system in the child’s body, suffering complete shutdown and death by the fifth to seventh year. Currently no cure. Currently no child has lived to puberty.

BLACK RAGE (Shari’s Syndrome): black rage (as Debra calls it) can kill and takes days to recover from. Thalians call it Shari’s Syndrome for the first bi-human to experience the devastating physical effects upon reaching puberty: extreme convulsing, severe nerve pathway disruption, higher mental ability malfunction, no cognitive skills or control during seizure, no ability to predict or prevent occurrence, unresponsive to medication or hypnosis, can last one to five days but normally only one or two days, usually fatal if an episode lasts four or more days. A one or two day seizure usually takes 3 or 4 days to recover from. Symptoms become worse after giving childbirth. Debra is the last of the original 50 bi-humans. Excluding those who died by accident, all of the remaining succumbed or died by suicide due to the extreme incapacitating effects of Shari’s Syndrome.

CONTROL MEDIATION (Debra):  Uses a form of mediation to regain control when afraid or feeling hurt by another–focuses on her heartbeat and slows her breathing and the blood flowing through her veins, relaxes the tightness of traumatized skin and the muscles and nerve-endings beneath until all trembling stops. The world around her becomes hush and decelerates into one perfect moment, until all that remains is a deliberate, relentless beat of her own heart, making her clear headed, unemotional, back in control–the warrior in her has returned.

Also some suppression tricks available–simple breathing, acupressure maneuvers–to help ease the adrenaline withdrawal.

HEARTBEATS (for resting heart rate):  – newborn infants–100 to 160 beats per minutes. Children 1 to 10 years–70 to 120 beats per minute. Children over 10 and adults–60 to 100 beats per minute. Well trained athletes–40 to 60 beats per minute.

MEDICAL BED:  headboard of the medical bed contains automatic monitoring sensors that continuously update when the bed is occupied by a living being.

MEIOSIS:  Part of the process of gamete formation in sexual reproduction, consisting of chromosome conjugation and two cell divisions after which the chromosome number is reduced by half (23 pairs of chromosomes).

Gamete is the matured germ cell; a mature sexual reproductive cell, as a sperm or egg, that unites with another cell to form a new organism.

MIND CLOSURE:  Manipulating and maintaining the various levels of mind closure (blocking the mind to intrusion) is the first thing a Thalian baby is taught (through the parental bonding link).

MIND SUPPRESSOR:  by mind meld, a mental barrier (undetectable by host) used to bury or suppress information in the subconscious.

SHOCK:  Is a severe condition that occurs when not enough blood flows through the body, causing very low blood pressure, a lack of urine, and cell and tissue damage.

TOUCH-HEALER:  these individuals can feel the pulse at the back of another’s neck–the body’s normal electrical pulse that travels up and down the spinal column from the brain. Rowan calls it a biological lie detector as it works on the same principle as the mechanical detector.
