I was born in the 29th Century BC, in what is now called Egypt. We called in Kemet then, and even today, I still tend to call Egypt, Modern Kemet. My original name, I forgot a long time ago, due to not using it. I lived a full and long “first” life. When I “died” from a sword-thrust due to a war, I was buried in the sand, due to my family being quite poor. I woke up in the night, and had a sudden realization, that that part of my life was over. Thus I started walking, all the way to Persia, aka Mesopotamia…
Lukas Merhoff: Does anybody have any descendents that lived in East-central Germany in the 1500s ? Because my maternal Grandfather ran away from Dresden for some reason, because he couldn't age, as I later found out. My mother only survived because my father took her in (not that he didn't want to, she was a curvy twenty-something blonde with sharp green eyes) and they got married, and hence, I was born.
The Egyptian (suddenly answering Lukas): Yes. My son, Heinrich. Now that you mention it, I did get a letter from him (I was living in Berlin) describing his new wife. He did mention the blonde hair and green eyes…
Lukas Merhoff: My father was named Heinrich Merhoff… Did he ever mention his son Lukas ?
The Egyptian: Lukas… Let me think… Once or twice, we wasn't communicating much by that time…
Lukas Merhoff: Amazing… Grandfather ?
I fought with him [note: George Washington] in the War of Independence, after switching from the British side. Also voted for him those first two elections.
And I think (not sure) I'm the ancestor of Upton Sinclair…
Around 1900. Desmond Field, lived in London, I was an accountant, and had been for ten years.
The Egyptian: (…) Fought for the French in that war. Died in the Somme, and again at Passchendaele. By the end of it all, I felt empty, heartless, disillusioned.
Gregorios: I understand that definitely. I remember being a bit disillusioned after the war for a few years. But once I had settled down into a new family, I felt better.
The Egyptian: I wasn't as lucky as you. I didn't get a new family until the Forties. I decided to go to America after the war, which I helped during a few times in their history. I named myself “John James Ingersoll”.
Well, I'm named Parley Miles now. I live in Toronto, Canada.
The Egyptian: It was 2001 when you contacted me.
Gregorios: Is strange, but only the last third of my life has been spent as part of the Trust. I can't remember what it was like trying and coming up with a convincing cover life without them.
The Egyptian: For me, it was all but ten years of my life, without the Trust. Considering I was born in the 29th Century BC, and only was contacted in 2001 AD, yeah…
