She began, “You found me first on the previous expedition. You found me secondly on the current expedition. I am the green liquid there, and the living gold here.” She went on, and he let her. “The other planets star is a part of this local cluster. This worlds star is rouge and is on its twelfth orbit thru. This orbit will be its last as it will collide with another rouge-star currently inbound just after leaving the cluster. On the first orbital pass I realized from both vantage points that I was on both worlds. My dilemma was trying to find a way to join my dissected entity back together. I was whole long ago but by choice split. When I came back in close proximity to myself I suddenly longed to be myself again. Can you understand me so far?”

“In any case, you became the raw material I needed to accomplish my much desired task. Now that I am whole again I can resume my far travels and transmute this planet along with its star to the next level it needs to achieve before it is destroyed.”

“Who knows. All I know is that I have always ‘been’.”

“I still need to know more.”
