A visit from the Immortal Illuminati

By Kate. September 13th, 2010

I had a visit today from a representative of the Immortal Illuminati. To tell you the truth, I was surprised by just how pleasant the experience was.

Based on Oxadrenals many descriptions, I had envisioned them as cold, hard and ruthless, a cold-hearted embodiment of the concept of “the ends justify the means.”

They may be all those things, but the visit itself was extremely pleasant. True, the middle-aged woman who knocked at my door and introduced herself as “a servant of the Immortal Soraya” possessed a detailed dossier on my life. But the Hafeem (as she proved to be) was sophisticated, intelligent and thoroughly charming. Once again I learn that there are more sides to every question than one might at first think.

Our conversations were wide-ranging. She had, among other things,read every word of our site, and was generous in her praise. The Immortal Illuminati, it would appear, have no intention of harming us, nor of shutting down TrueImmortals.

We are each being visited in person today. And, in the near future, we shall receive contributions to our site written by Soraya (though, as I understand, via an amanuensis.) — Kate

    I’m sort of wondering about something. Suppose the DNA sequencing works and it does become possible to make immortals. Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve read about people with very vivid, verifiable memories of prior lifetimes. What would it be like for one of them? To go from a being that knows they have changed bodies every 50-100 years, to become a being that would use the same body indefinitely? Would they even want to be tied down to one body like that? Or would it be a relief, to never have to adapt to a new identity ever again?

    Did she have her entourage?

  3. kate says:

    No entourage, but this wasn’t Soraya herself. It was a representative.

    Merlin: just like maybe those who believe in an afterlife would rather die. Their choice!

    “No entourage, but this wasn’t Soraya herself. It was a representative.”

    Aww. That’s no fun. Even reps usually have buddies to back them up… Going at it alone, coming to you alone, just seems.. I don’t know ‘wrong’ some how.

    Merlin, like most things, I think it would depend on the person.

    so they track you down without any inside help?

    should i be wary what i say in here in future…

  7. Flyss says:

    C: I wouldn’t worry too much, old friend. We made it rather easy for them to track us down, because we’ve appeared in public at documented places. Think back — Glenn’s death was public record, and Kate signed for him at the hospital. We were all at his funeral … etc. etc.

    that’s rude, not even a phone call to let you know first they are coming
