World Peace

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Asmodeus, Jun 27, 2010.

  1. That's a good question. I think we were going with a group of friends, so it would be cool to figure out how we act/met. It seems like Anton is the leader (which makes sense and is fine), and then I remember that Kraveing's character met up with Quiet's who then introduced them.

    @Quiet One @Kraveing_Volkf thoughts?
     
  2. A'Llara Petrresi, The Nurse - Pyrrhus Med-bay



    Still munching on the grainy bar Lara observed the Chief Doc diagnose the problem all the while answering the Duty Manager's question. She offered the robot a cheery smile then approached the curled up Kah'Saun. "We'll have him up in no time." Flicking the holodisplay once more she brought up his Central Nervous System readout and indeed it showed a pattern consistent with REM State dreaming. Clicking her tongue she smiled and nodded at the Doctor understandingly. Power bar between her lips she went over to the side of the Med-Bay and started opening drawers and cabinets until she found a pair of black fibre-mesh gloves with some form of rectangular device attached to the back of the palm. Putting them on one by one and power bar still in her mouth she extended out and clenched her digits until she was comfortable. There were exposed wires going along the back of the gloves connecting the device on the back to the fingertips.

    The Impulse Gloves served to help stimulate nerves and muscles in thick-skinned species, ones that needed all the benefits of a massage but had medical staff who was too weak for that. Taking the bar out of her mouth and placing it down on the table nearby Lara powered on the gloves creating a whirring sound at first then turning into a slight hum only she could hear as the impulse travelled through her skin and nerves. Her hands felt like they were vibrating and oscillating at high frequency. "Give him a slight stimulant, it should be enough to break the hibernation, I saw it being done on some giant mammals back home at the Zoo. They didn't want them hibernating during the winter." Putting on a visor she clicked the side and held the frame of the glasses until she saw an overlay of Kah'Saun nerve clusters and muscle structure across Sev's body. Adjusting the setting on the gloves she went to work.

    It may have appeared odd to the onlooker but through her vision she tracked the ElectroMagnetic Impulses go through his scale and muscles rousing his nerves. To others, it looked like she was tracing some invisible lines with her hands occasionally making circular motions or poking at his scales like the worst massage imaginable. She started from his back and worked up towards his shoulders and neck then traced it down across the spine and around his tail and buttocks. The tail was one of the more important parts as it was an extension of the spine, however, his curled up form made it look a bit odd. For Lara at the very least, she never worked with a Kah'Saun so this was a first which made her a bit unsure and awkward. Thankfully the visor's augmented reality was more than enough to tell her she was on the right track.

    Location: Unity Fighters HQ
    Time: Late Afternoon
    Interactions: Clo
    Walking through the halls of the hall, Allie remained largely quiet as her and Clo walked with determination. The Heads weren't going to be happy with the news and a swelling of discomfort was lodged in Allie's gut. It was obvious what to do - at least in her mind. They should storm the ceremony with as much force as possible and hopefully intimidate them into revealing the true extent of their schemes. However, she got the damning feeling the Heads would not want to be so heavy handed. She had faith in Clo, at least.

    "Seems they're already in a meeting," Allie said, puffing her cheeks out as she stood in front a door which led to a large chamber room used for meetings of importance. "You wanna knock or should I?" Allie asked, further.
     
  4. ^^ yup
    Though yours is still possible as a 'something awakened it in her blood'

    and yea I avoided talking about what kazekage number my girls father is since I didnt know how far down the line it was.
     
  5. Melody coo happily as she reach for the cereal.

    “I’m home.” Harmony’s voice came from the front door.
     
  6. Not So Cold Blooded...



    Sev also had a focused, analytical way of judging things... though he cheated. Didn't need to see faces to judge reactions. A person's "ghost" never hid anything. And he had all three eyes open. So he couldn't help but see what Doctor C'eira felt about his snot. However, to also give him credit, he didn't tar himself, either. Simply made a mental note not to sneeze on the ship's doctor again, then just gave her a slight grin, without added sheep, as she looked into his eyes. Also quite glad it hadn't come out the other end, though it probably would, some time in the next twenty or so minutes. If lucky, closer to an hour. He'd at least made sure not to eat a big meal just before the techs at Euphrates Station induced his hibernation state...

    ... then mistakenly froze him.

    Fortunately, his hibernation state had kept the cryo from causing... well, Sev thought of more pleasant things. Possibilities now just "water under the bridge". No harm done. He'd feel grody for a bit, yes. Till everything was expunged, including the detritus from his hiber-exfoliation.

    Nothing more refreshing than a hot shower!

    Hot water and lather, very good at removing dead skin. Hopefully, with a couple of heavy duty lufas. And a bath brush. Hopefully.......

    ....... yes, very glad to be alive. And warm-blooded. And not...

    ... Hnnnnnrrrrr!

    Sev had just wiped the end of his muzzle with the offered towel. Followed instructions to "lean down". So now, yes, under the tender ministrations of the recovery bed, he couldn't help but feel quite... gooooood. And quite conversational...

    ... "Hnnnnn... strange word, that... if you... you've gotten rid of your bed, it would be very hard to lie in it." His own words, his conversational bend, triggered by the end of his therapy. By the "afterglow" he always felt after going through this recovery process...

    ... "Yes, I feel quite well done. A dash of salt and pepper, a bottle of white wine... candle light... a single red rose... perfect." He gave Lara a toothy grin as he almost melted off the recovery bed, down on all fours, sub-arms tucked to chest. A few steps, then he shook himself, stretched in languid cat-fashion, then gave himself a look-over, mane and quills ruffled, ears down and back, tail a-twitch as his tongue stuck out for the third time...

    ... "At least it will be, soon as I bathe off this old birthday suit."

    His grin subdued, quills down as ears perked forwards, bright, intense eyes locked on hers...

    ... "I could use some help..."

    Indeed so. Even after displaying such remarkable flexibility during his stretch, there would be spots quite difficult to reach.

  10. Oh, you got online early.
     
  11. I believe the correct term is "Woo Ha" ;)

    The irony of "world peace" is it's something we have to fight for. There are so many obstacles in the way of achieving that goal, and they all have to be overcome. It could be a missing technological development, or a tyrannical dictator. Until we as a civilization change the hearts and minds of said dictators, or eliminate them, world peace will be a myth.
     
  12. In my life, violence has always been a symptom of fear.

    If I understand people, I love them. Hatred is just a lazy way to assume the worst in people and thus make yourself feel better.

    If I was braver, I wouldn't hide behind hatred and self-righteousness.

    And to remove the fear from my life, all I need is a little love and a little reassurance of my purpose.


    The bottom line, as far as I see it, is that we are ALL born with a fundamental goodness, and if that can be isolated and reinforced then utopia is possible.
     
  13. tell that to the Bolsheviks, or even better, Josef Stalin.

    he had the chance to create a utopia. an actual communist state.

    what he created was a socialist dictatorship and mass murder factory.

    say that for the fuckers in africa using children as footsoldiers.

    tell that to the men and women proagating the child sex trade.

    tell that to all those who use the negative side of madnkind as an excuse to enable their dark desires.

    we will onlysee a peaceful utopia when there is no creativity, no personality and no individuality, no politics, no sociology, no ideology.

    because those things inevitably cause clashes and conflicts.

    we are better off focusing on makeing the world BETTER. on IMPROVING THE WORLD. than going for world peace.

    it is better to struggle for gains and concessions than nto struggle for a utopian dream.

    I dream of a land where everything is given freely and everyone ahs everything the could ever need, and all work towards a the betterment of mankind, a true communist world.

    its a utopian dream, and because of that, i klnow it will not come. and if it ever does, not in my lifetime.

    so I and mankinbd, as i ahve said, are better off trying to make the world a better place than struggle in vain for a naive dream.
     
  14. Communism failed because power corrupts....

    What we're talking about here is a peaceful serge from the masses, not any one man. Men are corruptible, entire races, much more difficultly so.
     
  15. Hey guys, hows about we have a culture where everyone takes care of themselves and we only take from the earth what we REALLY need while always leaving behind enough so that it can multiply for others to use for when THEY need it :D

    ...OH RIGHT.

    AHUR HUR.

    To me, world peace seems like a really creepy concept. I think it wouldn't come without some really serious costs...But then again, I come from a people whose major identifying trait was to make war and do battle. So, yeah.
     

  16. then you're not talking sense vay-brah.

    a peaceful surge from the masses has been tried before, they get met by gun lines from those in power, or ignored and ridiculed.


    and i am faamiliar with your wuote
    "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely" and it is indeed true.
     
  17. we rely need world peace
     
  18. Never happened on a global scale before. Though yes, if history has taught us anything its that those in power never give it up easily.

    One of the saddest and truest lines ever written.
     
  19. world peace is possible. but it is also possible that we're in the wrong world.
