Having the Lite project its words on MY black cape makes ME stand out like an illuminated sign with or without the light from this sun. If I am going to travel a any distance  at all Lite, I will need to minimize MY exposure to the humans. “How soon we forget. You can make YOURSELF almost invisible by using the Nano based material that is part of your entire body covering, remember? You can control how light reflects off of YOU by using the Nano mirror surface process. Turn it on and the humans will be looking at an object that blends into the background. Unless YOU bump into someone, they will never notice you….day or night.”

I guess I am going to test that process soon as we need to start collecting…as you have indicated Lite…the humans that fit our specifications. Where do we start? “First, you need to think about making YOURSELF invisible, or reflective may be the better choice of words here. Just think about your body covered with mirrors and the imbeded Nano/OLED will do the rest…. Try it.” Okay, let’s see or not see how this works……Make ME reflective! …I thought to MYSELF.  In less than two seconds I sensed MY body covering moving or re-adjusting in some way and then it stopped. Okay Lite….did it work? “I don’t know. I can’t tell.”

What do you mean? Can you not….not see me? “Um…well I can’t not see you because I could never really see you. I can just sense you are there. However, if you look down you should not be able to see YOURSELF…just like our first encounter with the hunters..remember? Oh yeah!……I looked down and saw the ground, no feet or legs…looked left and right and the black cape was gone, replaced by the reflection of something in front of me. It was two humans, looking right at ME!

MY first thought was to start thinking about the Lite Ring…should I need it. “Don’t worry, the Lite wrote.” I sensed something in MY cape. Maybe a message from the Lite? But realized if I couldn’t see ME how could I read its words? “When you become reflective I can communicate through the covering, but only for a very short time. If you stay in this form for a long period of time, say one Earth hour or longer, you are on your own…. And, the two humans are not able to see you.”

I looked at the two humans who were standing on what looked like the side of a long stretch of black material standing next to a…vehicle of some sort. “The long black section is called a road and they travel in these wheeled vehicles.” Okay, so how do I determine if one or both of these two humans fit the specifications for our LiteWorld army, as you called it? “Well, somehow you need to slowly show YOURSELF without making the humans run away and then using my words and your cape you will ask them some questions.” You sure this will work? “Not sure, but we need to get started so you need to do this now.” What if ?…….”Just do it!”
