I just thought of something after rereading this and the recent posts about parallel universes. The universe which Boreanesia exists in could be one of the other universe that will exist after our own "Cosmic Cycle" is complete. Or perhaps it already existed and its own "Cosmic Cycle" is complete. I think this latter is more likely being that I somehow know things about Boreanesia. How would I otherwise know these things if it didn't already exist? I must be a remnant of the previous Cosmic Cycle - In Boreanesian terms, I could say that the "Fire" and "Water" in me never completed its cycle of detachment/attachment in the previous Cosmic Cycle. Hey, perhaps I'm an immortal across various Cosmic Cycles!! Perhaps all conlangers who create conlangs by "consulting" a parallel universe are immortals across Cosmic Cycles!! We're all Gods across Cosmic Cycles!! Whoa - DEEP!! Oh well, just thought I'd share that. Regards, -Kristian
