15. Hello, Again.

It wasn’t the fact that I couldn’t see MYSELF that triggered the memories of this place of Light, but the reflection of the vegitation off the body of water.  Tell me again the name of this world we are standing on? “This is earth, third planet from the sun. It supports a very large population of humans….. Tell me what you remember.”

It wasn’t the reflection of trees, that I remember, but the  beings…humans that populate this planet. What I do recall is some type of interaction with them….I can’t tell you exactly what transpired but I thought I  had made  contact with several of the humans. You would think that I could remember more …..maybe if I made contact again with one of them it would help. “There are billions of humans on this planet…contacting some of them will be necessary. In fact, in order to complete our journey we will need the aid of a number of these humans…..and getting them to accept what we want them to do will be a problem.” I understand…and by the way I see some other reflections in the water and the reflections are …..moving.

There were a number of humans moving toward us from the other side of the water. The reflection of the sun off the water made it somewhat difficult to clearly see them. It looked like they all had on the same type of outer garment that fit over their….body.. but there were no extensions to their arms…no capes. I was wondering how we would communicate. Could they read the words formed on the Lite Papr? ” YOU don’t remember?” … Remember what?… “How they communicate.”

They were getting closer. I could see three humans and it seemed as though they were moving slower as they got closer to us. They were looking at each other and  were opening and closing their…….mouths….Yes! I remember, this is how they communicate. But when I was here before I don’t remember any direct interaction with them. “YOU saw them….they never saw YOU and YOU are about to find out why that couldn’t  happen back then.”

As they approached ME I wondered how they would react to MY presence….then they stopped in front of ME…. I hadn’t noticed it before but it looked like they had some long devices in their…”Hands.”  The words formed on MY cape…on the Lite Papr and the humans immediately reacted by raising up their devices and pointing them at ME. I thought, what are they doing?…. I expected a response from the Lite but there was none. “Hands? What are you some funny guy that forgot Halloween is over?” .. I remember now that the humans use a form of vocal communication and the fact that they repeated the word, Hands, formed on the Lite Papr meant I could communicate with them.

We all stood there looking at each other. Okay, I thought, now would probably be a good time to form some more words and let them know who we are and the importance of our journey. The response from the Lite was unexpected…”Put down your weapons!” Somehow I didn’t think that was the correct response because all three humans pulled their, weapons?, closer to their heads and then there was a soft, but distinct….click!
