WELCOME TO THE CONVERGENCE
FAUSCLAN ENTERTAINMENT, LLC
Welcome to the Convergence ... The Gateway to the Worlds of my Novel Series: Of Crimson Indigo and the developing vision of a series for television.
Crimson and Indigo are two young, star-crossed lovers whose journey has propelled them from one existence to another-across multiple lifetimes and alternate realities to a place where their love may survive. But now, with both near the end of their existence on a world where the past, present, and future coexists, the two temporal travelers must forge a new relationship with one another in the fever of a budding love affair that may-well consume them. However, for the assassin, Crimson, the past suddenly no longer has any meaning.
Stripped away, leaving the once torrid love affair burning within her soul until nothing more than a fleeting memory of a flame of the heart remains, Crimson Krydal Starr finds herself strangely drawn to a formidable young bounty hunter, whom she finds herself marooned with on a mysterious world at the threshold of a spatial rift, where she is taunted by memories of her previous existence, and the probability of losing the one thread of her life capable of rekindling her love for the torcheres soul of Indigo, the bounty hunter against the irritable prospect of being consumed by the littoral breathtaking metamorphosis of a universe in the midst of a temporal convergence, the young lovers must confront their own demons like pawns in some proverbial game of chess and find a way to restore the future, before their future existence is erased from history, forever...

The original concept for Of Crimson Indigo: Points of Origin was to tell a ten part story that had no beginning or ending, only the sum of it's parts. It was to be an intricate look at the human condition, how reality shapes our perception of what is real and what is make believe. It was to be multi-generational, hence giving it the span of multiple lifetimes for the events of the saga to come to fruition and draw in logical conclusions to the end points of the story, but something changed mid-stream. A new element was born that altered the course of the project laying the ground work for something unbelievably formidable in size and shape.
What if the story wasn't just multigenerational, but rather multiple individual lifetimes in stature. Future Course™ was born, and a single comic book was released exploring the aspects of a minor character in the story. But the demise of the company prevented any further development of the project and the first rendition of the property was scrapped until a second incarnation of Future Course took shape in the spring of new era. Alien Landscapes and Marauders of the Black Sun hit the drawing board as perspective feature film projects altering the concept of the saga still again. This time the element of the possibility of being the first IMAX feature film was introduced with the probability of having ADI and ILM respectively considered as part of the production's Visual Effects providers .
On the morning of a proposed trip to ILM, for a visual effects meeting disaster once again struck the project, this time in face of a major earthquake in Southern California. A disaster that put the project on the back burner for nearly a decade. It seemed success for this property would never come. However, Future Course™ continued with a twist, and a resurrection that rekindled a new incarnation of the project that would breathe fresh life into the property, and in essence, an entirely new reality. So, with the seed of an idea as the foundation, the adventure once again crossed the threshold from one existence to another in a groundbreaking direction ... The Living Machine Chronicles™.

Caught within the aftermath of a multi-dimensional rift in space-time, the bounty hunter, Indigo, must find a way to preserve the future of his high-powered symbiont's true identity, when she is forced to blend with a previous incarnation of her host. Set against a world in turmoil Indigo must find the new personality of his symbiont before he looses his connection to her, which may sever them from each others reality permanently.
Meet Olivia Sutton™
(Screenplays available upon request from a registered Agency, Production Company or Studio Development Executive)
Meet Olivia Sutton
Next let's cruise with Crimson and her host, Olivia who has no intention of running around naked, cohabiting with another consciousness in a contest of wills between blended souls that must learn to live together, or to trust one another, yet she understands each other’s needs. Olivia, on the other hand, wants no part of her cohabitant and only tolerates her symbiont more or less repulsed by her thoughts, especially those passionate needs she displays for root berries, iced drinks and subtle foam-topped beverages with a multitude of otherworldly ingredients, all of which, feed her need for diverse forms of sensual energy, which leaves Olivia panting with desire, of course.
Concept Cover – for face type only not contractual
Crimson's experience is colorful to say the least. She's lived through countless lifetimes, existed in alternate realities, explored the cosmos, traveled through time, and survived the fall of a multitude of civilizations only to find herself at the mercy of her hosts. It's important to explore Crimson's backstory, to familiarize those directly related to her with her means of survival and abilities: More important, the relationship with the bounty hunter Indigo. She has weaknesses, desires, hopes and an emotional connection to her former host that is timeless and abounds in her persona as if it was simply nothing more than a part of her. A memory that spanned lifetimes, and spawned a relationship made of pure love in simplest terms. Indigo was her perfect companion, a mirror image of her existence but from the source of an alternate reality. He was neither man or machine, but rather the essence of soul, enlightened and as frustrated as his counterpart.
Love is complicated, sometimes dismissed, or hidden beyond recognition to anyone except those involved in the moment. Being both male and female further complicates the existence, the memory of former existence adds a form of inner conflict that we can play on, explore and embrace as the series evolves. Artificial intelligences play a part in the driving force behind the existence of Crimson Indigo and the lives they've shared. Multiple existences requires a multitude of memories to interact with, so it was important to introduce our hero, Olivia in a world where both the future and past tend to derive the present. We wanted to explore where we've been and where we're going through Olivia's character. Both her future and her past effect her
perception of the world, while her memories of cumulative lifetimes adds a sense of wonder and wisdom, which beyond anything else presents different aspects of both her personality and six sense.
Cohabitation isn't either Crimson or Olivia's first choice, but once blended the prospect of survival becomes stronger. It was important to blend the former lovers and relationships into a faction that both entities can access. Previous boyfriends of Olivia can cleverly interfere with Crimson's judgment just as her aspirations can have a direct effect on the human side of the equation, which allows us to explore the reality of the human condition. At first chaos ensues, but with cooperation and understanding the melding pot solidifies, and the resulting ratification can allow for us to change our characters personalities, traits, likes and dislikes, lovers, friendships and inner conflicts. Crimson and Indigo are destined to be reunited, however, there's always the resistance of the other which we will have to deal with both as a species and blending of humanity.
Next we'll explore the relationship between symbiont and host, forever love and the lure of contact between former lovers, and the relations of both the young and old alike. Love is timeless, everlasting and found over and over again, one encounter after another. Crimson Indigo's previous relationship is destined to rise in both host and symbiont, the question is will it be a conflict, embraced or the cause for retaliation...

The Relationship of Crimson Indigo
We explore the relationship between symbiont and host, forever love and the lure of contact between former lovers, and the relations of both the young and old alike. Love is timeless, everlasting and found over and over, one encounter after another. Crimson Indigo's previous relationship is destined to rise in both host and symbiont, the question is will it be a conflict, embraced, or the cause for retaliation.
Remember the last time you entered a room and recognized someone you didn't know as someone you may have known before, or maybe loved before, or even hated before. It happens to people everyday, so why not carryon where you left off. I've done it, and I'm sure you have too. That's why we wanted Crimson and Indigo to have a previous entanglement, or perhaps more than one... Who's to say that the relationship between Crimson and Indigo was a love affair, or a downright adversarial confrontation. A battle between partners where one actually killed the other, only to be regenerated and reborn in the case of Crimson Indigo. Even the relationship of Olivia and Crimson is important to consider ... the realities we all live in, the outcomes we pursue, imagine, and even hope or expect to achieve contribute to our relationship with one another and the universe.
What if love was governed by Karma, the akashic Record, or simply one's own actions both here and in another universe, dimension or even a past life experience. That's why we capstone the phrase "It was a time when the universe was young, and the light was upon us all ... Remember." It's our doorway into the realities experienced by Crimson and Indigo.
Consider this... You meet someone, they're oddly familiar to you, as if you've known them all your life. You're carefree and comfortable with them. For all intents and purposes, you are instantly attracted to that person, but you have no idea why. You don't know them, or do you? Yet, there is something about them; be it love at first sight or just because you've both been here before. First contact is far more complicated than a chance encounter, especially if it's preplanned as in the case of Crimson and Indigo.
Consider it kismet, or destiny, even fate ... life is a tapestry, a blanket of intertwined reunions, connections, even romances that never had the chance to finish, or flourish in a past life experience. In any event, we wanted Crimson and Indigo's involvement to draw to a meaningful conclusion. Everyone finds love, or doesn't. It's the connection we long for as human beings. But what if the spirit was separated, driven apart, by the very humanity we search for. Is it simply the need for reunification, the hope of being reunited with that selfless other half that completes us?
A middle-aged woman hopes to find a young lover with stamina. Love is complex, and definitely complicated. Men and women are at odds with one another, because we think differently. So it is with Crimson and Indigo, Olivia and Race, or one of Crimson's previous hosts. Attraction is universal ... you either like the person or you don't. Sure personality and persona contribute to the emotional responses, but what if it goes deeper than that. Perhaps all the way to creation ... the force of nature and the need for love or companionship. No one wants to be alone on purpose, and we tend to seek out like minded responses.
In creating the essence of Crimson and Indigo we wanted to explore the prospects of how life is experienced, love and hate influence the characters, our inner relationships with them and even those hopes and desires we share as a viewing audience. So what constitutes the needs and knowledge of who they are and where they see themselves in the universe, even if our hero is in their own backyard there is a moment of self worth, pride and that feeling of satisfaction that propels us all.
Convergence is the story of reunification, falling in love all over again, and the willingness to sacrifice everything for that love. For love is eternal, we need it to be just that: Eternal. It's that part of the soul that continues, carries over from one lifetime to another, through one experience to the next, even through life, death and resurrection.
Of Crimson Indigo is more than a character study, it's a multifaceted look at the breath of humanity, and where the reality of existence may take the human machine, a living machine, whose origins may stem from the depths of the cosmos itself, if not an intelligence capable of manipulating both time and space altering the factions of what exists, ever existed, or just maybe. where the next generation may find itself ...
Next we'll explore the facets of the personality that binds Crimson and Indigo together, even through separation, reincarnation, or reanimation. It's a big universe out there, and we're going to find ourselves stuck between paths that lead to two different pasts, where only one future will be triumphant, the other bendable, if not breakable. Both able to be converged. Remember ... It was a time when the universe was young, and the light was upon us all...
CONTEMPLATING THE FUTURE'S PAST
IN A TIME WHEN THE UNIVERSE WAS YOUNG, AND THE LIGHT WAS UPON US ALL ...
IN A TIME WHEN THE UNIVERSE WAS YOUNG, AND THE LIGHT WAS UPON US ALL ...
Exploring the facets of the personality that binds Crimson and Indigo in a big universe we find ourselves stuck between two different pasts, where only one future will be triumphant, bendable and able to converge, the aspect of the future's past for Of Crimson Indigo became instrumental in both structure and content. We thought of a snow globe, and how one world is within another, or in the case of Crimson Indigo, a universe within a universe. Hence, It was a time when the universe was young...
In contemplation, we pondered, even mediated on the possibilities of it existing, a bubble cosmos, a microcosm of what came before, one future leading into another, given birth in the cradle of existence, each expanding; forging forth in the shape of a sphere hellbent for the expanse of infinity. Now, consider one future devouring the other to form a reimagined existence. Not in the essence of a Mandela Effect but rather where a manufactured universe is renewed, allowed to triumphs in its own failures, each going hand-in-hand with a multitude of outcomes superseded only by the game of the expansion. Whole worlds regenerated in a new likeness, controlled and conceived by a power hungry entity with designs on every living thing in the physical and supernatural realities.
Be it artificial intelligence, or the essence of fractal patterns held within the depths of a microcosm formed at the mercy of the strings holding the universe together, or even the prospects of God's creation. The reality of Crimson and Indigo encapsulates the underlying quality of life, understanding, and belief in a system of values reflecting our own reality, but what if that reality was directly contributed to by alternate time lines, past and future incarnations. How would this influence affect our daily lives, our day-to-day existence?
We pondered these questions, considered answers to other questions we had yet to ask, and came away with a problematic experience our characters had to encounter, experience and try to overcome, while faced with unspeakable odds, incredible dangers, triumphs and failures, not to mention eternal love.
For Crimson and Indigo the memories, both conscious and subconscious surfaces at every turn, and not just in the memories of Crimson or Indigo, but in their respective hosts, counterparts and previous loves and lovers. Above all else of Crimson Indigo is about falling in love anew, even if that love is eternal. It's what drives our characters forward, governs their reactions.
Next, we'll dip into the concept of Trithen Industries, and the galaxy wide civilization it keeps an iron-fisted grip on, the employment of Crimson as an assassin and Indigo as her bounty hunter counterpart. We'll also discuss the upcoming Haulers Incorporated book and a few new things that are in the works.

SPOTLIGHT ON: Production Design/Art Direction & Production Illustrations ... Designing the Look of Crimson Indigo
Greetings Travelers and welcome to the first Trithen Industries summit. It's important to know the founding elements of the mega-conglomerate and our first inklings of the galaxy-wide corporation as presented in the original incarnation of Future Course: The Living Machine Chronicles circa 1983, created, and drawn, but left unpublished as a comic book in leu of other ventures including Alpha Track™, Skellon Empire™, Radium and His Intergalactic Odd Squad™ and a host of other one to three issue endeavors. Future Course continued development hand-in-hand with Trithen Industries' bad boy attitude.
The industrial giant became famous for its world's made to order properties, secret space borne programs, and other worldly projects including the experimental space station in the heart of the Border Worlds area known as OR567L, the future sight of universal growth projects: Flat Earth Solar Disc and Sodin interchange, an artificial intelligence universal seating property designed as an intricate part the artificial universe platform know in its final incarnation as the Temporal Wave Corridor transit system of the Of Crimson Indigo Saga.
We're including here a reference guide to those important terminology elements pertaining to all aspects of the Industrial empire created as part of the mega-conglomerate.
The Assembly: Galactic Senate which is made up of representatives from the ruling council of the five major corporate entities: The Hyderon Corporation, Trini Corporation, Border Worlds Corporate Alliance, Oceanna Consortium, and Trithen Industries. The Assembly oversees corporate dealings, territorial disputes and sanctions new entities entering into corporate service. The Assembly is also responsible for maintaining the unification of the Rampian, Trinonian, Myateken, Valconian and Eden sectors of space surrounding the Triad Abyss, as well as the inhabited border worlds of the galaxy.
Bounty Hunter: Corporate operative sent back in time via symbiont connection to a former life incarnation, or adjunct connection to an earlier time in a person's life.
Boundary Interface: The area of space immediately between the Triad Abyss and the boundary layer separating the threshold of coexisting universes.
Boundary Layer: An artificially created ring of energy used as a separation device between the thresholds of a manufactured universe and its originating reality.
Border Worlds: The ring of inhabited planets surrounding the Triad Abyss. The border worlds consists of millions of new and emerging planetary bodies, many of which have undergone the Industries' regenerative process in preparation for off-world mining operations, terra-forming, or reconstitution of artificial life.
Commercial Transit System: Gateway travel explicit to commercial entities on official business. Approximates first class travel between worlds.
Corporate Assassin: Crimson Nomad - A corporate representative with the authority to eliminate obstructions to corporate needs, including but not limited to elements of past dealings, hostile takeover scenarios, and individuals the corporate entities consider non productive, or a hindrance to the development of influential economic stability.
Corporate Liaison: Representatives delegating authority between corporate interests and world leaders on investment planets.
Corporate Runner: Entities sent into the past to do corporate business.
Cosmic Wave Boundary: Edge of an expanding artificially created universe.
Gateway: The mode of transportation used for quick access to border world planets.
Hound Tracker: Transit Authority Investigator. The Hound is a ravenous beast-shaped machine designed to remove rogue travelers from both the commercial and tourist transit systems. The creature is feared and considered unstable and extremely dangerous, but has yet to be retired from interplanetary service.
Integrated Tactical Offensive Line Warrior: (ITOL) The corporate soldiers used to patrol the boundary regions between the Triad Abyss and the threshold of the artificially created universe connecting wave corridor interface. Established as a line of defense against hostile intentions from alternate realities.
Jumpship: Vehicle capable of traversing the Time Wave Corridor.
Kalamar: Ancient race believed to be responsible for living light technology, which allows the creation of artificial life on a natural occurring repetition. Considered comparable to the life giving energy in all living things.
Living Machine: Entities given existence using living light technology.
Regen: The process by which artificial life can be renewed or rejuvenated to a younger, more stable age.
Regeneration: Regen on a planetary scale. Still experimental, but shows hopeful results on tentative worlds.
Rampia/Sodin Interchange: The corridor connecting twin worlds in alternate realities.
Sodin: Lunar body discovered to be a planet-size world machine housing the Industries' Temporal Convergence Laboratory. Project failed, created the area of space known as the Triad Abyss––Birthplace of the alternate reality created by the Industries and the connecting corridor threshold between universes.
Please note: The experiment was never shut down and maintains the threshold of temporal convergence to this day. Site allows the passage between the past, present and future of the connected universes.
TRODS: (Tandem Remote Operations Directive Specialist (Version 1) Bio-mechanically created living machine counterpart Archeologists.
Temporal incursion: A break in the boundary layer separating the original universe from its manufactured counterpart. Incursions can occur in any period: past, present or future.
Temporal Wave Corridor: The connecting bridge between alternate realities. Available for transit in both universes; universes are multilayered and varying emergence points are at set intervals.
Temporal Wave Corridor Transit System: The system of transit used by the ITOL warriors to traverse the corridor between the universes. Used during operations between alternate realities.
Triad Abyss: Failed experiment residue enveloping the area of space around the planet-size machine world of Sodin: Once thought to be a living mass capable of draining the life energy from all living things in existence, the mass has lied dormant for thousands of years. However, there are signs that the mass is returning to life.
Trithen Barrier: Theorized to be the residue from the big bang initiated in the creation of an artificial universe at the heart of the temporal convergence laboratory on Sodin.
Trithen Industries: A self-proclaimed power among the giant corporations, which resides on a thousand worlds ruled by the Corporate Assembly. This vast conglomerate consists of five-mega corporations that span the known universe. Trithen Industries and Trini Corporation are the largest, while Konsus Amalgamated, Hyat-Raa Research laboratories and the Hoval-Malee Corporation control the other third of the empire. Control is absolute and unconditional.
Tour Transit System: Economy class: Similar to the commercial system.
Valconian Symbiont: Living machine, (manufacturing date unknown) artificial life form with the ability to bridge life giving energy of an individual with his or her past, present, and future incarnations.
Vessel Medallion: The hardened edge of the living machine symbiont.
Windrigger: Pirate ship. Twenty-two gun sailing vessel with bellowing sails, ice runners spars and tether lines. Most famous of the jumpships used in the Battle of Echo Pass, during the great exodus of humanity.

Developing Haulers Incorporated and the Concept of Truckers in Space
Join us as we climb aboard as we tackle the origins of truckers in space, the long hall, the short run, the inevitable dangers, tricks of the trade and the upcoming first issue of a novella length, episodic adventure book series.
The early days of the Crimson Indigo saga needed a mode of transportation that enabled our heroes to traverse the cosmos, throughout time, and across the universe. While the idea of truckers in space came from first hand experience and knowledge of being part of a trucker family. My father worked for a major US Carrier based on the eastern part of the United States. He often talked about life on the road, quick stops, the long haul, lonely nights and living away from home. Truckers in space was born of his expertise and foreknowledge of the kind of man it was to be a truck driver. Haulers Incorporated became the homage to those who travel the roads endlessly to bring goods, merchandise, cargo, and a host of other freight shipments and payloads to destinations that span the world.
The Early Adventures of Vex Redford™ and Rooka Trent™ came to life in a time before the Industries mega-conglomerate ruled the galaxy, before Crimson Indigo coursed the temporal corridors as Nomads on Corporate business. Haulers Incorporated opened a new frontier, giving birth to a small freight company destined to play a major part in the history of the cosmos. Which allowed for the implementation of story elements that would later effect the heroes journey through out the saga...
With the introduction of Vex Redford and his mechanic/navigator, Rooka Trent, the idea of the long haul cross country driver team solidified as counterparts, a couple of traveling companions in search of action and adventure, a few extra bucks, and jobs for hire where they could find them. The only problem with the science of truckers in space was dealing with time dilation, did the transports travel faster than light, use some sort of traditional warp drive like in other science fiction series, or did we need our own mode of transit that could fill the bill and allow for travel among the stars. Wormholes were a possibility, the expectation of generating the power needed to achieve transit through an open wormhole system had also been effectively been mobilized in stargate travel, so connecting points in space time seemed a reasonable alternative to current modes of transportation, and so the Temporal Wave Corridor was born.
TWC transit gave our characters and their machines the ability to traverse great distance by utilizing the probability of an expanding universe and temporal coordinates to input space time destinations in multiple dimensions as well as the possibility of traversing the boundary between the bubble universe and its host cosmos, our own Milky Way Galaxy.
The prospect of Vex Redford and his mechanic, Rooka Trent actually being able to traverse the border worlds in search of revenue, love, and adventure became plausible. And as the probability of crossing vast spaces with the use of coordinates became a mathematical probability the essence of a daring, heroic thrill-ride filled with uncertainty, explosive danger, and unpredictable peril presented itself. The tractor trailer took the shape of a cargo vessel compartmentalized to maximize the freight capabilities available to our Haulers Incorporated vehicles––the Dragon Wing Hauler became the primary source of transit utilizing the Temporal Wave Corridor as a transit system.
As the possibilities developed in the prospect of a spin off series to the Crimson Indigo Saga, the idea of an episodic adventure seemed to be the perfect role of HAULERS INCORPORATED and as the saga continued to develop, the introduction of Jake Ramious to the cast of characters fit right in, completing the jumping off point for a direct connection to the Of Crimson Indigo book series. Hence book one, Haulers Incorporated and the Eye of Armageddon took its roots in the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy, with connections along the stellar highway linking the border worlds to the inner civilizations. Our star travelers became the small crew of the Haulers Incorporated Dragon Wing Transport.
With the prospects and underlying storyline established, all that remained was the backstory to the property. Vex Redford and his crew needed a home base of operation, some place not too conspicuous but secure enough the base could be left on manned for lengthy periods of time, enough time in fact for transit to and from the local star systems.
The long haul was quite a different problem all together. Long distance transport would need access to the Temporal Wave Corridor Transit System, and access to such high technological advancements would have to have a place in the backstory. More important the technology had to be a part of the introductory elements of the pilot episode being used as the basis of the episodic book series, yet, he couldn't overwrite the concept of any possibility of being developed into a television series. However, this project was put on the back burner so to speak with the release of prospective entertainment for the small screen with the introduction of another series with cowboy truckers, in the guise of a western in space.
As the pilot went through revisions, Haulers Incorporated added a new element to the mix and the crew of the Dragon Wing suddenly had to find themselves in the midst of a corporate negotiation that could spell certain death for all the parties involved unless the cargo aboard the flyer could be used in the negotiation at an off-world mining colony. Armageddon took point, and the pilot, Haulers Incorporated and the Eye of Armageddon emerged as the perfect introduction to the worlds of Vex Redford and his crew.
Next, we'll take a look under the hood of the ITOL (Integrated Tactical Offensive Line Warriors and the creation of Krydal Starr, the development of the Shadowriders, and the temporal displacement device known as the Eye of Armageddon.

ORIGINS OF A TEMPORAL LOVE STORY
The Characterization of Cosmic Springs
The love story and romance of Crimson Indigo from beginning to end, as we explore the relationship between symbiont and host, future incarnations, past existences and former love recognition. From the beginning the idea of the love affair between Crimson and Indigo had to be timeless, eternal and everlasting, otherwise the loss of such love would be incomprehensible for both Crimson and Indigo.
Their lives began as something other than human, be it spirit, life energy, living light, or the spark of creation's soul. Both the future and the past had to have an impact on their existence together and apart. It had to include love, attraction, sacrifice, forgiveness and loss.
Their story takes its beginning in a distant past, amidst the embers of what will eventually become a being of pure love and light. But as with all beautiful existences like those in all creation myths, our story had to have the human elements contained in a fall from grace, a journey into the unknown, separation and a time of growth, self discovery, finally loss and a new beginning in the land of the living. What was to become of Crimson and Indigo has happened to all of us along our journey of discovery, love, failure and, of course, death.
The relationship of Crimson and Indigo in its earliest state was simple love, neither being nor creature, but laid within the essence of what guides the universe, exists in all things, it's the light of emotion and mood, enlightenment and spirit. We referred to it as Living Light™ and continued development of the relationship through the alliance that eventually binds them together in a common lineage, which forms the initial source of the romance between them.
Furthermore, there needed to be a comedy element, some comic relief to the overreaching idea of Crimson and Indigo's affection for one another, especially a lack of experience in such situations, which in itself can cause friction, as well as complicated triangles between hosts and symbionts. At its core, Of Crimson Indigo is a tragic love story, and about believing life has meaning.
Love can have many outcomes, because of emotional attachments, it's never the same between people twice, each experience is different, altered by perception, even driven by lust, or rejection. There's nothing to say the one you love will love you back. Emotions control people, even drive them to actions out of their ordinary comfort zone, so we wanted to have our characters have experiences beyond the conventional. It was important to allow the visual, emotional connections to be natural, only perhaps the attraction between one characters host and another's symbiont be the initial interest. Even a reversal of characters, Indigo in a woman host, vs. a male host. There was nothing to put limits on the characters, only the depth of the connection.
As the saga unfolds, the prospects of Crimson and Indigo fall out of favor, allowing for individual character growth is explored. The events that caused the separation of their union is as old as love itself, a lack of self knowledge. The spirit is ageless, the host, husk, or body as it can sometimes be called has time limits. Sometimes, those limits change, depending on the lifecycle of the species, so we introduced the idea of Nomads.
Nomads are Travelers ... wanderers, rovers, even gypsies; more important, they are transient and capable of crossing great distances, hence the idea of vessels came to light, and the notion of another kind of entity not manufactured, cloned, but rather, a host or husk even a shell or exoskeleton was conferred as a possible creation to house the Living Light entity.
EBEs and the consideration of Extraterrestrial Biological Entities as the possible vessel came and went, almost as quickly as it was suggested. Living Light exists in everything, living or inanimate. It evolved into the essence of creation existing only in the vibrational frequency and dimension, it's timeless, and exists in all temporal convergences, past, present and future. Finally, the idea of the universe itself being the vessel for living light struck home. At last, Throughout Time, Across the Universe hit home. The impact of the Haulers Incorporated struck gold. The life essence of anything using vibration could be introduced as a means of transportation. Change the vibration, change the location of our Nomads.
Any incarnation of an existing host character, was suddenly reachable by direct conscious cohabitation with a past existence, future persona, or its present frequency. Life became eternal, not in the physical but in the spiritual form. The stability of our heroes suddenly not only existed in the present, but in both the past and the future. Timeless ... Reincarnation became a reality we could consider, our heroes lived before, which made the concept of past life and former love recognition possible.
As we explore the idea of past life recognition, the reality of eternal love, soul recognition and the properties of Living Light, let us explore the origin of Cosmic Springs™ as present within the overall story arc spanning the romance of Crimson and Indigo.

ORIGINS OF A TEMPORAL LOVE STORY
The Characterization of Cosmic Springs Continued
We explore the idea of past life recognition, the reality of eternal love, soul recognition and the properties of Living Light present within the overall story arc spanning the romance of Crimson and Indigo.
As the story of Crimson Indigo developed, the romance between both the hosts and the symbionts had to have real world feelings for one another, not just between the symbionts but the hosts themselves. The concept of a former existence adding to the experience of previous romance, love, intimacies, jealousy, even anguish, depression or obsession needed to be considered for each character, their interactions with one another, and all those encounters, friends, loved ones, and family interactions, relationship irritations, dislikes and chance meetings with former adversaries added a level of concern to the deliberation on the compassion, charity and benevolence our heroes would face.
Love between partners of varying ages depended upon the needs of the story, as well as developing relationships within the context of attraction, recognition of both soul and former relationships also had to be considered when it came to all interaction within the circles of the characters. Crossovers, and prearranged rendezvous also had to be added into the mix. If one of our heroes encountered a former spirit they had experiences with the story had unique aspects that needed to be developed in the overall relationship. If Crimson's experience with a former incarnation for instance is reencountered in a temporal blending, then the original encounter would have some influences over the traveler, host and those counterparts sentient within the nomad. For example, if Indigo encountered a former soul or living light spirit reincarnated as a woman, he would have an immediate response to her, regardless of her age, unless it was detrimental to both of them. Its possible that indigo's emotional connection would simply reengage with the life force of the previous experience, once again be reunited on some level of intimacy, whether friendship, love or some variation of the relationship that previously existed.
There are feelings involved in all categories of relationship from parent to child, grandparent to son or daughter, even neighbors have a relationship, as do enemies, and those individuals who may face incarceration or death. The evidence of love as an eternal affection between individual entities must be looked and evaluated as experience, and the prospect of love being the essence of life that continues on after death is that place in humanity's soul that is reunited with the overall substance that may well be the nexus of a sum of the whole. In other words, each experience contributes to the being as a whole. That which is learned, offered in love and light, may be something that simply continues to exist, blending with the overall being as an entity, regardless of what is left behind. What experiences the current incarnation takes with it in death, are stored and applied to the needs of the next incarnation, however, the new individual living light soul is limited as to its place in the cosmos in order for the individual to gain knowledge, therefore allowing itself the time to adapt to changing situations, experiences and interactions with the reality in which it resides. Hence, the host grows through the trepidation's of childhood, through adolescence and adult hood, while the nomad maintains its relationship with its own overall existence in both time sand space, regardless of its dimensional vibration.
Next we explore the foundation between man and human machine, the humanity's soul matrix and the essence of a multidimensional being. Understanding the principles of vibrational travel and the conditioning of subjugation, regeneration and rebirth as a means of soul retention, all through out reaching, the overall manifestation of one's own existence, and the laws of attraction that generate an individual's presence and place in the cosmos.

More than a moment in Time
Blending Mind & Spirit in the Arms of Eternal Love
Creation is timeless, ever stretching in the universe of Crimson Indigo. The blending of spirit and mind, the soul's retention of it's previous existence and the sum total of everything the spirit has learned once the current incarnation is returned to the whole. For all intents and purposes, death in the Crimson Indigo world is transitional, not permanent in any since of the word. For Crimson and Indigo it's a portal to and from the here and now, to some distant concourse from which a mission can be launched, executed and completed. The Termination Point is that moment when this mission and no other is complete. It's important to look at our heroes as individuals living together under the same roof. They cohabit an individual host, their minds linked, the essence of their humanity, soul matrix and living light existence is what makes up the base line for their existence.
For Crimson Indigo the blended version of the Assassin and bounty hunter combination or version of the heroes is simply a union presented in the option of integrated existence, which allows for our heroes to cross the median of life and non physical compatibility for the purpose of an assignment. However, in the case of the separation of spirit energy as in the case of Crimson and Indigo's separation, the manipulation of time and space has affected their existence, splitting the union before reunification has occurred, which leaves our heroes vulnerable and on their own.
As we approach the foundation of Convergence it’s important to see the previous incarnations of Crimson Indigo in the light of a being who has grown up in a world where the past present and future of their existence has allowed them the opportunity to grow with and without one another. It’s important to the over all story for the audience to know and understand the relationship between the future and the past. For Crimson and Indigo life has met them on the playing field and allowed them to find their way.
As with all living things, there is a moment when life takes its own path, learns and experiences both love and sorrow. That moment for Crimson Indigo is the moment of separation. The culmination of a future driven by the experience of living in two different pasts adds a level of further complications to our heroes existence, like our own existence, the lives of both Crimson and Indigo has prepared them for the forthcoming event that will alter them forever. That moment is Convergence ... For our Heroes the time of conjunction is at hand. The powder-keg is lit ... all that remains is the explosion.
Next time, we will cross the threshold and begin our journey into a time when the universe was young, and the light was upon us all ... REMEMBER!
This is the foundation. From here, convergence can occur.
