ORIGINS: MELANITE DIMENSION
Their form and names are lost to time and infinity. They are simply known as The Divine Light and The Universe and progenitors of the Ether.
Before time took hold as a concept, Ether met Form and they created the Melanite Dimension.
While Divine Light and The Universe fell back and enjoyed their time together. Ether and Form continued to add to the new dimension, eventually the inevitable happened and they gave birth to over twenty thought forms; energy capable of individual thought but without a body.
One form found itself further and exposed to far more than any of the others. By the time these forms gathered again with their parents, Ether, and Form, he not only had a gender but a name, T’alp.
T’alp eagerly explained all he had done and seen. He taught the other forms on how to create their own forms and genders. Eventually, he ended up with ten brothers and ten sisters who then left to explore again.
T’alp remained awe-inspired from all he had seen and began to chronicle his adventures for no other reason than to have a personal record of where he had been. One day he received a visit from his sister who had now taken the name, Tyisha. In her travels, she stumbled across a dimension powered by energy so vast and great and brought it back to show the others.
It took some time for the others to return home. In the meantime, she taught T’alp everything she knew. Eventually, an idea began to form between them and, when their brethren returned, they taught them how to harness the energy floating around to create a fountainhead of power that could create universes within their dimension.
They paired up and over the course of several eons, Twenty Primal Stones were created however, the forebears miscalculated, and the power was too strong. Stones cracked, others fractured, and some had to be remade all together. Eventually, one who had taken the name Americk came up with an idea to create vessels strong enough to siphon energy and use it to help ensure these new universes ran smoothly and efficiently.
After teaching them, each pair created two Vanguards capable of harnessing great power and acting as guardians and protectors to their respective Universes.
With everything settled and power running smoothly, the Children of Ether and Form agreed to leave their creations and check in on them twenty eons later. Over that time, through an exchange of ideas, several brothers and sisters would collaborate, return to their creation and introduce new elements into their universe. Before the group left to travel again, they came together and Eran along with his sister Erandrea* suggested a contest; allow their universes to grow, live and become their own and see what would become of them at their next gathering. Then allow the Divine Light and The Universe to decide which universes were the best.
They all agreed and when they returned and examined their creations their universes were similar but vastly different and developing and varying stages. This excited all of them and they agreed to continue it and even their siblings to introduce elements of their own into their universes. Then they agreed to set off and find the Divine Light and The Universe and show them what they had done. They agreed that they would return sixty eons later with or without their progenitors to check on their experiments.

Ether and Form continued to add to the new dimension, eventually the inevitable happened and they gave birth to over twenty thought-forms; energy capable of individual thought but without a body. of her sister’s experiments while T’alp took guardship over his brother’s. They created messengers that would be capable of carrying messages to suggested a contest; allow their universes to grow, live and become their own and see what would become of them at their next gathering. Then allow the Divine Light and The Universe to decide which universes were the best.
The Obsidian Universe leads others in the development of wisdom, art, culture, inspiration, engagement, balance and self-discovery. It is not without its problems, detractors, and enemies, but whether they realize it or not, the inhabitants of this universe have the innate power to be resilient, overcome, and could potentially embrace and evolve into higher selves.
* Podcast may have referred to the Emerald Forebearers as Dominic and Darcy but the names were changed on 2/21/20 to reflect the uniqueness of the dimension and to fit more in line with the other Forebearers.
