[Zorai]Assemblies of the Circles of the Theocracy in Zora and Hoi-Cho

* the Ranger's plan to remove the kitin-mounds (and -tunnels)

After the Sage Sens / Gangi Cheng-Ho had left the Assembly the others discussed the current goo-problems a little longer. The Awakened Fitis has wanted to talk about the Ranger's plan of using termites, but she had to leave too. The Awakened Fey-Lin Liang admitted that the work of Ardan Keale on four isolated termite-colonies in the Almati-wood looked promising, but it would still pose an ethical problem in her eyes.

Daomei Lin Carthan tried to speak in favour for the Rangers while the Awakened Fey-Lin Liang explained her view of the balance of nature as it is seen by some Zorai based on the political principles of the Theocracy. There are of course also other valid interpretations and this is not to be seen as the one and only irrevocable truth. The Awakened Fey-Lin Liang stated that each lifeform on Atys has a different place in the world according to their spiritual advancement, which can be viewed as structured in circles either closer or further from Ma-Duk (also known to some as the Great Kami) which is the purest spiritual form.

I again want to point out that other homins would see the circles of spiritual advancement merely as an outline of our political structures explaining the different respectability and responsibilities of beings within the Theocracy. All Zorai with political functions have been inculcated with the fact that these circles should not be understood as a hierarchy; even though those closer to Ma-Duk are indeed seen as having elated higher in spirituality and the Awakened are viewed as lights to guide Initiates towards enlightenment.

The Awakened Fey-Lin Liang also believes that every life form on Atys has a spirit, a parcel of Ma-Duk himself. In her opinion the Zorai ethic should be to never harm any other beings in regard of spiritual accomplishment. The Awakened views natural predators and the need even of homins to feed on other living beings as part of the equilibrium of nature. But no creatures should be harmed without a need, because every being should have the opportunity to strive after spiritual advancement.

On the Sanctuary of Ma-Duk there was a teaching to be read long ago. It said that Ma-Duk can create something out of nothingness, and that he created the seeds of life. It does however not mean that every seed or life form actually carries a part of Ma-Duk within. Instead it was especially noted twice on the Sanctuary that the Kami have a part of Ma-Duk's spirit in them - which was not mentioned for any other life form on Atys. The Kitins were clearly said to be part of the life of Atys, very different from abominations like the Goo that is viewed as a part of the nothingness and the Karavan who are seen as outsiders not belonging to Atys.
