PostSubject: Memories of my species   Sat Jan 15, 2011 1:06 am

Origins

I know that I am from another planet entirely, my memories are concrete enough to prove that. What I remember is nothing like Earth; the animals, beings or the scenery. All I remember of my home was a sky full of lightning and my kind was born of that energy.

Physical Appearance

A long bodied, thin yet muscular dragon with 3 sets of feathered wings and long tails. I reckon that they were powerful fliers and possibly swimmers. Colors varied. Also our bodies were marked with these faintly glowing 'tattoos' that represented our purpose/what we were. They are the dots and swirls in the picture

Behavior

Friendly but if an ally needed help we would be there without question. We helped many beings, often times saving them from bad situations and we asked nothing in return. I know I was ranked highly amongst my kind; I was perhaps a general or something along those lines.

Culture/Language

To expand on the ranking, being higher ranked only meant you did more as a job to society, it didn’t mean more pay or more fancy living or anything along those lines.
Having a high rank for myself meant that I was a peace keeper and someone who led armies to war when it was deemed necessary to do so. War was rare, I only remember two instances in my very long life in that other world

Everyone seemed to know everyone else, no matter where they were. I am unsure
how this worked but I imagine it had something to do with how we traveled. In
towns a frequent sight was music, food, laughter and general merriment.

Language was not often spoken but thought (telepathy) and the words were very much like music.

Environment

The planet I frequented (not my homeworld) was rich with life of all kinds both sentient and other
creatures. The trees and plant life was rich and essentially untouched as the
towns were made to work within the trees, on top of mountains and beside seas.
Water (or something like it) flowed in streams, lakes and other large bodies of
water and the water was so vast, surrounding where I recall living that I
believe I lived on a large island and the entire planet was made up of
scattered islands.

I remember a lot of colors in the forests, not just green but pinks, purples
and a lot of shine. The colors simply beat anything on this planet, so vibrant
and well, otherworldly.

I don't remember many animals but none of them match anything that can be found on earth except for the "Nightmare" which was somewhat horse like, I’ll have to draw it eventually. Higher ranking members of society rode these creatures into battle and on patrol. I know it sounds weird for a dragon to ride something but we did, the Nightmares were big.

Science
Our science was basically what could be considered advanced magic. We had technology, lights etc, all powered by magic. I realize this sound suspiciously like Harry Potter but I promise that this is one of the hardest points of my past that I've had to come to terms with. Why? Because there's no way I can display how the magic worked here, I can just tell you about it.

We used our abilities as weapons, no guns, just magic, which I find far better than blowing someone's brains out. On occasion we did have daggers and weapons like that but nothing like guns. Our abilities were used to heal too, to travel to make food, etc..

Travel

We used magic to open up portals and as I said previously, the Nightmare. We also flew and walked.


Hierarchy

War generals were pretty high ranked then came soldiers and civilians. Every job was considered to be important and valued by our society so as I said before, there was no special treatment. Many of my kind were worshipped by other non-species beings; I think it’s because of the help we provided.

Offspring
My kind had no gender and we were unable to reproduce. Instead elders of our species created new babies using magic/high energy. It was not as though someone could create a baby just to create a baby, love had to be put into it.

I think that sums it up for now, if you want to know more about my species just ask questions. I might be adding sections as I see fit. If you have any insight or ideas please do let me know as well.

Interesting.

What you said about magic makes a lot of sense to me, actually. There are many ways to manipulate energy, and power lines and fossil fuels seem rather crude compared to some glimpses I've gotten. I think magic may have been the main technology on Earth once, as well, but so long ago records of it are gone.

I'm curious about the Nightmares. Why were they called that? I read a fantasy novel once which included large firey horses by that name, although I thought the author was simply using a play on words to give the bad guy a scary mount.

I was suddenly reminded of an intense vision I had years ago, which seemed to show that dragons were once a dominant species on this planet, similar to the way humans exist now. Then, after some kind of signal, they all flew away to someplace else, just before something cataclysmic crashed to the surface. That impact may have been what split Pangea. Don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but I felt like throwing it out there.

There were 3 periods or ages of civilization prior to us. We are in fact the 4th so far. And yes I am familiar with the reptilian species. For your information they are still here and working with us but in a totally different light so to speak.

@Scratch

I just call them Nightmares because they fit the pictures give or take some details. They don't look exactly like Earth horses though that are on fire. They're sort of horses/reptiles or something like that engulfed in blue flame.

Interesting vision. I am honestly not sure how much I can believe that there was anything reptilian (other than dinosaurs of course) living here before us. I only say this as a person who is a scientist. I do however, respect the person who may believe otherwise, it is just not something I can really believe without some proof, you know? It took me long enough to come to terms with that I am spiritually Razz

@Ouza

I don't know what you think of reptilians but I have met several and I think they're very kind individuals. I know some who truly hate them (and draconian types) and I think to believe any species in its entirety is evil is just like saying the same of any race on this planet.

Agree.

Along these same lines, or the "magic as a weapon" thought, I once saw a movie that kind of matched what I thought it must actually be like to use magic as a weapon (looks for a clip)... (finds one minute 1:21 to 1:29 of this music video made with clips from the Escaflowne movie: video ) where basically they're projecting energy at each other from what looks like their minds' eyes....

As I mentioned with Sol, there is an abundance of evidence that implies that a reptilian race (and winged, at that) existed at some point during this planet's long history (and I agree, Ouza, that it is much longer than mainstream science accepts). From the Quetzalcoatl in Mexico to the Naga in India, to dragons of East Asia... you see images of snake or reptile humanoid beings in the ancient traditions of almost every regional world culture. Mostly they're seen as wise or as gods, and many of them are also associated with having wings or feathers, or even with the Seraphim or other angelic hierarchies. I don't think it's far-fetched to think that an intelligent reptilian race existed at some point in this planet's history, though I don't myself have knowledge (memories) of them, it's too much of a mystery why such widespread similar world myths would exist otherwise....

My people also, it seems, bore tattoos and markings all over their bodies.

Your description of your planet reminds me very much of Faery, for example the buildings that sort of blend in with the natural landmarks. Here in this body, I've often thought how stupid it seems that human peoples destroy the environment to create homes, when it makes sense to me to build in and around fixtures like forests and mountains.... just my personal viewpoint, as I suppose that is the sort of thing that I remember from my other lifetimes. The colors and sights in Faery were much more vivid than they are on Earth, too. We also used telepathy more than spoken language, and the method of reproduction that your peoples used sounds familiar as well, though I cannot say if we used it or if I only know that there was a people that used it...

WHat you have said about the tattoos is interesting.... many Shadow had/have tattoos too, and whilst these perhaps had less purpose, they weren't something we did to ourselves, but were a symbol of rank or purpose and individual to each Shadow.

The question of offspring is completely understandable. The Shadow were 'sexless' until they became physically incarnate. In order to produce offspring, a fragment of an indivudals energy/soul was taken and added to by energy directly from the Source. This created the new Shadow. It was only the Seraphim who were allowed to do this or had the ability.

Not sure why I never asked this before.... Az, I'm curious - as there is so much reptile/feathered/wise/godlike representation in worldwide mythology, do the Shadow have anything to do with this, or with these images?

Or were they connected with snakes or dragons or the like? (Other, than , I guess, the Morningstar)

To be honest as far as I'm aware I think the influence came from a number of different sources, but the Shadow, and especailly the Grigori amd how we appeared at times, will have been one of the causes. There is another, specific named godform that is reptilian and has feathers that I am personally linked to, but won't go into this too much right now ..... far removed from Melek but what's a Fallen One to do!!

The rest will come from Dragon Kin and others..... but their involvement in this I will leave for them to say!

I think you've just blown my mind haha. You remember only the seraphim being able to produce offspring in the way I described? If so, mind definitely blown. It always er, freaks me out I guess when someone else shares a memory Razz

As for the tattoos, I know we were created with them and more formed as our duties became more apparent. We were created as children and had a full childhood and time to grow up while we learned our duties as well. I know I was taught by elders that were not of the same rank but had more knowledge than I did (of course because they're elders). In my society knowledge was more important than rank for a time anyway, which I think is a good thing.

Interesting! I hadn't thought of it being like Faery (but you are the second person to tell me this actually). This planet was one that I frequented but it was not my planet of origin. I didn't spend very long on my home planet, not actually sure if it was a planet at all. Feels like I just kind of was plopped out of the sky Razz

@everyone

Thank you for your insightful comments, you all have been pretty helpful and eye opening.

People talk of tattoos of authority. Give me a for example, please. I have simple marks on both forearms which I never put there which have appeared with-in the last year or so. I was taught that if, I ever came home with a tattoo I would never be allowed inside back into the door, but that was long ago, although I never had or even have gotten one!

I read this post and this is what came to mind, I have strange memories of what you talk about but I don't know what to say or how to go thru dealing with it. Maybe you can tell me. I have strange memories of other worlds that i can't explain but I always had a belief that there were other dimensions other than this one.
