Some years back, I agreed with the Gorgon that I would get them off Earth
at my earliest opportunity subject to their agreement not to feed upon man.
They've kept their word.
The Father has a magnificent way of taking something poor and turning it
into something grand. This has occurred with the Gorgon.
This species has been locked into a cycle of mindless feeding and reproduction.
They have a gestation period of 500 years and a life span of 100 years. It
takes their world 500 years to recover from their last feeding cycle.
Based upon their agreement with me, they voluntarily restricted their hunting
which, in turn, reduced the number of new births.
This took the pressure off of them with regards to answering an ever
growing demand for food. They are sentient, but instinct was always an overriding
concern with them.
Recently, I received a message from their leader. My expectation was that
he was going to gripe about the extended amount of time that has elapsed from
our agreement. I couldn't have been more wrong. Instead, he thanked me. He
said (essentially) for the first time they were able to stop and smell the
roses and they've gained a new perspective on life.
With the Gorgon, memory is genetic and these lessons will be passed forward
to the next generation as it will when they return to their own world.
I had an extended conversation with Old One yesterday and asked him to begin
the necessary engineering to get them back home. We don't have one pilot who
would be willing to fly them there so dimensional door is the only option
Their colonies are spread all over the planet and we are in the process
of locating them with the goal of having them collect themselves into central
locations for transport.
I am rather pleased with how this worked out.
