Supreme Neuron Cells
Protectors of the BioCosmos
Enigmatic, highly intelligent, mystical.
There is a place in the Cosmos where only Messenger Cells are permitted, a place of myth and whispered legends, where dwell eight mystical beings whose nature is beyond the understanding of mere Biowarriors: the Thalamic Chamber. It is there, between the twin pulsing hemispheres of the brain, that the Council of the Mind eternally hovers in a rotating circle.
Nobody knows where they came from, or if they ever die in the manner other cells do. What is known is that they and they alone are privy to “The Will of the Cosmos.” A blinding, crackling ball of energy flickers above them, and from this mini-star comes every thought, emotion, and sensory input experienced by The Host of the Cosmos, Alex Hawking.
It is the Council’s role to interpret this constant stream of information and translate it into messages that can be relayed throughout the Universe by Messenger Cells like Sensurian.
They inspire awe. But do they feel it? Do they know fear, or anger, or love? None can say, for even Messenger Cells scarcely dare to do more than glance at them. They are keepers of secrets, and none is greater than what it means to be one of them.
