    Tzaroth747 got a reaction from Zyrxae in The Elefant smaller than an ant   
    [quote name='King Manu' post='16388' date='Sep 10 2008, 05:04 PM']All around you are big and small things. Thye are big or small because you compare them to eachother. Take two things you want, one big, one small, then try to see things comparing to them in such way that they will look exactly the oposite.

    and the ant-elefant things is not an example, is an actual training material.[/quote]


    Training material of what type, created by who, and for what purpose?

    Liquid Sunlight

    Alone on the rocks, transfixed and wondering, I stand
    The loving sun sends its warmth across the land,
    Lending every shade a golden hue.
    The firmament comforts me with its majestic blue.
    As I peer about and scan within
    A clear reflection mesmerizes my internal vision.
    Like a newborn child’s first sight I sense
    The glory of a hidden world, sweeter than any incense.
    Currents of euphoria flow and ebb,
    With me, the willing victim, caught in the web.
    My soul, put to ease by these feelings, so strong,
    Is lulled into peace by the earth's silent song.
    A brief sensation that can't help but fade
    Is my greatest treasure, rarer than a unicorn's glade.
    Felt once but remembered forever, so pure and bright,
    Is the glory and joy of my liquid sunlight.

    (Written to honour a brief, wonderful feeling of connection with the Earth that overwhelmed me one day as I was doing a nature hike.)



    Cruelty

    Your viral touch infected me long ago
    We laughed and danced in your playground
    (The memory shimmers in my minds eye)
    Of us together, there as one.
    How blind I was! To all your lies,
    Clever veils erected to please and sedate,
    Comfort and subdue..
    My will dissolved under the subtle
    Stroke of your caress.
    Of it all, my heaven was there with you,
    My love! and now it's gone, ripped asunder
    And all that's left is your smiling face, so pleased...
    So pleased with my misery, your creation
    Taken up so high! Into your arms I fell

    These eyes of mine close with bitter remorse,
    Knowing full well the taste of sublime delight
    Was nothing more than pity for my ignorance
    Doled out so passionately from the source of my demise
    You! my love, for whom I yearn,
    Wicked temptress haunting my dreams
    With you I writhed in a web of lies,
    And now alone torment fills this place.
    No, it was heaven, your deceit for me --
    All your heartless insincerity.
    It felt so good, your special cruelty
    ...and now, alone I burn with desire
    For you, the phantom Love I never had.

    (Double meaning poem, written both an analysis of the Thoth Tarot deck Cruelty card, and an ode to a bittersweet relationship of my past.)

    [quote name='Yami no Sakura' post='28447' date='Apr 7 2009, 06:24 PM']Okay...let's bring this baby back from the dead. >D

    [spoiler]So...where do the Shades fit into this?
    Well, one of the things we learned from the Shade Balance story is that the Shade have no individuality. They're like drops of water in an ocean, to use that analogy. They are incapable of having unique experiences and memories. Therefore, they cannot form their own cubes, and they cannot further their own set of Principles (even if they could possess some).

    As for the color/shape changing that happened to the Knator soldiers and Khal's group...
    I think that that is an effect of the walls of the cube (our limitations) reacting to the Shades.[/spoiler][/quote]


    If the Principles were to be modified in a specific way, I believe you could have an assortment of disparate entities that share the same consciousness. In this way, to fit the schema of your theory, the Shades would, indeed, possess a Cube. Just formatted in a different way than humans... Each manifestation of a Shade would be a reflection of the uniquely configured Principles that form the Shade Cube. To coincide with this idea, the changing and morphing of the soldiers and Khal's group could be the reaction of two differently configured Principles interacting with each other.

    The idea of the Cube is that it is a unique, static (yet malleable) soldification of the Principles. Place two Cubes together and they change each other in surprising ways -- as the inherently fluid Principles act upon each other. Like magnetism, opposites attract, and opposing Cube configurations can't help but touch and change each other when they get close.
