  1. Well, I'm not entirely sure what The Traveler and Adventure logs are all about, or how to get involved with it(anyone know? Cause I'd love to join in!)

    On the concept of Time, I believe that in order to really and truly understand it, one must realize and then think in four dimensions instead of the three we often do. We must be aware that just because something is as we see it in the present, doesn't mean it always was like it is, or always will be as it is. Time is a fickle thing, and as mortal beings we can do no more than predict a (relatively of course) a short ways into the future. In that sense however we are able to see the future, and thus change it.
    Here's an example: Say you're outside in the rain, waiting for a bus. It's been raining steadily all day and the streets are covered in water and there are big pools on the side of the roads. You're standing very close to one and are aware of it. You look to see a car is speeding down the road, awfully close to the curb and realize that they are going to hit the puddle and splash the water on you. You see this in your head, experience it even, thus in a sense seeing the future. This simple fact gives the opportunity to alter what will happen, thereby changing insignificantly or significantly(I think most of us aren't truly aware of how the insignificant things truly are quite significant.) what happens. You've seen in your minds eye what will happen, and so you step out of the way, avoiding being splashed. You've just thought in 4 dimensions because you're aware that, in an amount of time, something would happen and you only have that amount of time to do anything about it.


    I'd go on, but I don't want to ramble too much. Taking note on the subject of balance, I read something, though I can't quite recall all of it; something to do with the shades, balance, and some sort of orb like thing, I wonder, has anyone considered ying and yang?

  2. I'd love to do some, but I'd need to know what the 'element' of the power is, or something like that. Otherwise I'd just be taking random, generalized stabs in the dark and wouldn't be able to come up with something good. If you want me to do one, just send me a PM.

  3. [u]Beware the Shadow

    [/u]
    Beware your surroundings, they're not what they seem
    It is but illusion, it is but a dream
    And you will find, that when this is so
    You realize that you are the one in control

    A slip of the mind can cause great fear
    As slithering shadows bring about tears
    You forget that you're dreaming
    You're lost in yourself

    A void opens up, swallows you whole
    As you fall, you reach out for something to hold
    Then you stop, you find something to grip
    You look up and see that there's nothing in your fist

    Your eyes go wide and you start to scream
    Still forgetting it's not but a dream
    You see it now, the ledge you'd caught
    It was only the shadow of the ledge at the top

    So beware the shadow, that liquid dust
    Lest you grasp for the shadow, not the real stuff.



    (So, this was an on the spot poem, so it's pry lacking in quality. It was inspired by a quote from Aesop which goes, "Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow." I'm sure given time I could come up with a better poem, but the quote made me think of MD immediately, and the focus on illusion and things not always being what they appear to be. Essentially a shadow, imitating the object.)
