Ah, wondrous discovery! For the chance to learn here, I would excuse Karras far more than he hath done..... Mayhap I spoke too soon. Of all the wonders our Ancestors hath left for our discovery, Karras is fascinated by only the smallest portion. Yet, without his aid, 'twould be naught to explore.... Still more rust gas hath arrived. I sent it as well to the lava, for I cannot convince Karras how little use we have for it. If only the Cetus Amicus could carry more digging supplies instead...... Site 2 goes best; it hath yielded up what Karras wanted, and now we explore its greater mysteries. How beloved of the Builder these Ancestors must have been, for surely he did show them all matter of wonders we can barely comprehend!........ Time will be short for my side projects, at least until the next shipment. Even then, I fear more unreasonable demands, until there is barely time to sleep, lest we fail to meet Karras' schedule ......
Mechanist Sermons of the Builder: Seeking the Path of the Builder Dry thy tears, lady, and find cheer. Blessed are they who strive for perfection. Build thyself a perfect house of brick and metal. No straw shalt thou use, neither in thy roof nor in thy bricks. No windows shalt there be, nor doorways nor dens. Sit thee there for fifty days and fifty nights, neither food shalt thou eat, nor water shalt thou drink. Look thou at neither sun nor moon. Feel not the wind, nor muse at the passing clouds. At the end of those days and nights, than shalt thou know a perfect calm,and then thou mayest walk with me in my domain.
Hymn 32: As the shaft to the gear. As the shaft to the gear, Turn me, Master Builder. As the gear to the cog, Show me the way. As the coal to the furnace, I burn for thee. Let the Builder return. Builder, see what we have done in thy name.
Voice of the Prophet: Karras Speaks Transcribed Sermons I stood before the legions and spoke, that they might understand. 'Seest thou what I have made? These are the Eyes of Karras, that will watch over thee, even as thou sleepest. They will watch thy post, even if thou art fallen. Never shalt thou be alone, whilst the Eyes of Karras are with thee. And see thou this also? 'Tis the Judgement of Karras, and it is deadly, yet fear it not, thou followers of Karras, good Mechanists all. For the Judgement of Karras will eliminate they who do not believe, they who would stop us, they who are the enemies of progress and enlightenment. So, my friends, go you now and place the Eyes of Karras, and the Judgement of Karras. Place them well, that thou shalt be protected forever. Let us look forward to the blessed day, when all fear shall cease.' And there was great rejoicing, and they placed mine Eyes and my Judgements all about.
New Scripture of the Master Builder Innermost Thoughts I dreamt that the Builder came unto me. We walked together amid the empty buildings. No tree barred our path, no creatures scurried forth. No foot fell there, save ours. So pleased was He with all I had done that he turned my flesh to iron with a wave of His mighty hand. I wept with joy, tears as slick as mercury, and thanked him for his gifts. Great is the power of the Master Builder.
Site 5 hath been set aside for Brother Cavador and his private staff. No other presence shall be tolerated here. The cog seeks not the furnace, nor the kindling the gear. Let the design of the Builder guide thee to thy place.
ATTENTION Those seeking Brother Cavador must not disturb other workers. 'Tis inefficient and causes the loss of much work. Request instead a schedule from the Camp Steward, and check the green lights, for they are lit when the Brother is present or was recently so. Use the tools that the Builder hath given thee, and pester not the worker, for his toil is pleasant to the Builder's eyes!
ATTENTION Those seeking Brother Cavador must not disturb other workers. 'Tis inefficient and causes the loss of much work. Request instead a schedule from the Camp Steward, and check the green lights, for they are lit when the Brother is present or was recently so. Shouldst thou find that all the lights are lit, then 'tis too late in the day, and Brother Cavador hath retired to his rooms. Use the tools that the Builder hath given thee, and pester not the worker, for his toil is pleasant to the Builder's eyes!
ATTENTION That the new schedule not slip, all work at Site 9 is delayed indefinitely. Receive thy new orders from the Camp Steward. Remember, the gear asketh not why it turns, but keeps its faith and turns day and night, never failing. Be thou the Gear in the Builder's Plan.
The person who returns the diamond drill bit, last seen near Site 6, shall be rewarded with an extra sleep cycle. Let the Builder's faithful turn their eyes to a task, and lo, it shall be done. Brother Cavador
The New Scripture of the Master Builder (draft, page 31) Master Builder, Your time is nigh upon us! My protective chamber is nearly complete, and therein shall Karras retreat. Soon the Servants will be given away. Karras shall create a Guiding Beacon, and with it Karras, in His wisdom, shall call the Servants back to Soulforge Cathedral to be modified with improvements, should any be necessary. Then at last shall all doubt be erased from My mind and all chance of failure overcome. Then shall Karras take the steps to bring Your Paradise to the world!
