Black Garden’s Heart & The Exo Stranger

DISCLAIMER: This is literally me trying to take an hour rambling on word about the connection between the Black Garden’s heart and the Exo Stranger. My thinking process is honestly like getting a bowl of spaghetti and trying to straighten out each noodle. A mess. But I’ve tried to organize it the best way I can.

The Black Garden’s heart was able to the Vex vessels.

Eschaton Mind.
   [ Eschaton: A dramatic transformation of reality from what we
   know or imagine it to be. Literally, the end of the world. ]
Imminent Mind.
   [Imminent: about to happen.]
Primeval Mind.
   [Primeval: very old or ancient, basic and powerful.]

Nothing sums up the forest of Nova Scotia better than the opening line of Evangeline by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

“THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.”

This is wrong. No human being in history has seen these creatures alive before us… we’ve been given the most amazing gift. And how do we repay that? That privilege? By killing them because they’re… inconvenient. What does that say about humans? About us? Lester, after all we’ve done here, is this how we’re going to be remembered?

What we now want most is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth and the elimination of that fanatic devotion to exalted ideals of national egoism and pride, which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife.

The caves are rock-cut Hindu shrines and this panel shows Vishnu as the boar-headed incarnation Varaha. The god rises from the cosmic waters, defeating the primeval serpent monster, and rescuing the goddess Bhudevi (earth), who hangs from his tusk.

❝Ok, guys, for those of you I’ve not met properly: My name is Matt Anderson. I’m your new team leader. For a couple of days your esteemed colleague Captain Becker has been bending my ear on every detail of this operation to ensure that you lot are properly looked after. So I would like to assure you that safety - the safety of this entire team - even the safety of Captain Becker - is my number one priority. Your jobs are demanding. Your jobs are dangerous. You put your lives on the line to protect the public every time that alarm goes off. There’s no room for errors. There’s no time for on-the-job training. So with all of that in mind, some new policy changes are being implemented. All new field operatives will be strictly military or from a military background. Safety will come first. There will be no more civilian recruiting. Now if anybody wants to talk about this, my door is always open. Over the last few months, a lot of you have testified the last mission of the old ARC. But yesterday that investigation was officially wrapped up. Abby Maitland, Connor Temple, and Danny Quinn have been pronounced missing - presumed dead. I would like to make it clear today that this means absolutely nothing. Over the years this organization has lost many brilliant people including Nick Cutter, Stephen Hart, most recently Sarah Page. But as far as I’m concerned this does not include Abby Maitland, Connor Temple, and Danny Quinn. These people could still be out there fighting to stay alive - fighting to make it home. I didn’t have the chance to work with them all as you did. But I hope that someday I will. So today as your new team leader I am rejecting the government’s findings. We’re not giving up on these guys. Not yet.❞
