Public Dedication

Public dedication was wonderful, but quite delayed because, in the linear world, it was Diwali, the Indian Festival of Light, so the traffic delayed people up to 90 minutes!!!

This was Kcymaerxthaere installation #080 and the first in what we call the United Arab Emirates.

Text of the Marker

The part of the story installed here:

Towards the Behlnajk

In the times of the Kcymaerxthaere, not far from this spot, was a legendary Wirld, which, in the Cognate tongue, means “the place of gathering one’s thoughts.” From such places, the responsible of myriad gwomes began their journeys to build their part of the Desert Behlnajk, or “Whorl of the World,” one of the great nested multi-dimensional spirals here on what we call the Earth that honor all non-combatants who perish in war. Behlnajki, the term used for these penitent builders, originally referred to generals but now includes all who lead others into battle. Such as Qui Xi, Nora Hawkes, Nobunaga-Gaisen and Sarge Brannan among others did their share of work on this vast, perhaps uncompletable, remembrance.
