I have to confess from the outset – I’m one of the lycra brigade.
Yep, I cycle – with all the flashy gear and hopefully some idea!
Whilst cycling is a great way of getting fit and enjoying the countryside it does have a drawback.
IT’S BLOODY DANGEROUS!
As if the potholes and cow shit on the roads isn’t bad enough, you’ve got other road users to contend with who often just don’t pick you up on their radar until it is too late. Or they just plain resent you being there and causing them to slow down.
This is not the place to tackle the cyclists v drivers debate – I seen cyclists doing some pretty stupid/provocative/dangerous things in my time – I just want us all to respect each other.
However, I reckon we on two wheels could do with some help and it was on a recent ride I came up with the concept for the Prot(ect) T Rex servitor.
Remember in the Jurassic Park movie when their jeep was chased by the T Rex? Now imagine a creature of that speed, power and attitude running beside you. A dino guardian.
I’ve worked up the following specification:-
Specific Intent: To protect me as I cycle, guarding me from other road users and warning me of hazards.
Energy/power source – energised via my Energy Store House Entity (pl see previous posts about ESHE in March and January 2012) directed by me at any time.
Appearance – A large T Rex
Magical abilities – a dense, threatening presence which prompts other road users to be fully aware of me and treat mewith consideration and courtesy.
Ability to direct my attention to hazards on the road.
Works in harmony with other servitors.
Housing – n/a Protrex to be astral
Activation - to be activated when called by name out loud.
Life Span – my lifetime or when absorbed by me
Programming Symbol – a sigil of name
Contact – evoke if necessary using name
Of course there is no reason why this protection should be confined to cycling and no reason why it needs to be a T Rex.
It’s a matter of what suits you and your purpose.
Enjoy and be safe, whatever your mode of transport!
