World Building today. Today we are going to take a look at Matter. What it is, how it is constructed, where it comes from, it’s purpose, how it effects things.
What Is Matter?
Matter is the basic most natural state of all beings found on Vryllnithia, with the exception of Annevangyne, Anthraxian, and Humans. Just about every other critter and being on Vryllnithia is composed of some form of Matter. Even certain species of plants are composed of Matter. Matter is a very delicate subject, manifesting like water, it comes in Four states: Gas, Liquid, Plasma and Solid. As a Gas it is breathed in, and it actually composes a lot of the air in Vryllnithia (after The Purge it becomes toxic to Humans who cannot adapt fast enough to it and therefore they all die! MUAHAH!). Seeing as most being can breathe in the Matter and use it properly, it pretty much replaces oxygen, though Oxygen can still be found in Vryllnithia, but only in secluded places and it becomes very hard to find it later. It becomes a rare resource. Matter is most closely related to an atom. It is a life source. If you delved into Vryllnithia’s system far enough and you would find a solid state of Matter manifesting itself inside the planet and always making the planet new and refreshing. The planet is self sustaining due to the Matter coursing through it. However Vryllnithia only has Dark Matter coursing through it.
There are two kinds of Matter, Dark and Light matter. Both types are constructed the same, and work the same, however one is meant for an entirely different purpose.
What Is Matter’s Purpose?
Both Matters have a purpose. Dark Matter is meant to create, to breathe life into the world. Dark Matter has it’s intents and it’s purposes, working in it’s own ways to create. It only destroys if it haves to, and it never has had to destroy anything (usually it’s the beings who can use it’s full potential, i.e. Tai’lume and Dy, other times it’s just creatures destroying each other).
Light Matter is meant to destroy. And it tends to do it very well. It tries to disable Vryllnithia and Dark Matter by attempting to swallow it all. There’s a theory that states that when Light Matter swallows everything (if it ever does) Dark Matter will swell up in it, causing Light matter to explode and thus recreating the universe once again, scattering Light matter across the different solar systems and leaving Light Matter to regroup itself and recreate this process again. However this is not proven, and if it was all the proof would be gone and the process would start over again.
How Matter Is Constructed
There are four states of Matter, Plasma, Liquid, Gas, and Solid. As a whole Matter is very Amorphous, and usually if you look at one end of Matter it might not be the same say in the middle, or at the very end. So say you start at one point, and say that point is very solid like, as you move in a direction down or up from that point, it may become looking like a liquid, or a plasma, and then as you keep going it could take shape of a gas.
With that said, Matter can usually manifest itself as a creature, mimicking the critter it sees, however it will not have the same attributes as a living creature. They are usually much more monotone and analytically, very calm, and incapable of complex emotion. When they drop this mimicked state, they become their plasma state and then shift through the states until they can get away or manifest themselves again.
Matter is found throughout space, and as a gas it is consumed by beings. Light Matter can be consumed by beings as well, but usually beings are forced to consume the Light Matter as the natural body functions of creatures on Vryll reject or kill Light Matter should it enter the body.
Where Does Matter Come From?
Matter is very mysterious, and no one really knows where it comes from. It is believed however, that there is a planet found in the very center of the Universe that is meant to create and give out nothing but Dark Matter. The nature of the planet is vastly unknown, though it could expected that it is nothing but gas with a central core. White Matter has no known origin.
How Does Matter Effect Things, such as Creatures, Plants, and Planets?
Depending on the nature of the creature, depends on how it effects the creature. A Dy is perfectly fine in a Matter environment, and it can survive just fine. However a human cannot survive, it is not equipped with the needs to survive the Dark or Light Matter. Dark Matter in itself, seeing as it does not destroy, instead tries to alter Humans. It fails though and Humans tend to die because of it. Plants that are effected by Dark Matter tend to be brighter, more stronger, and glow. Planets feel a positive effect, like Vryll, and can self-sustain themselves so long as Matter is manifesting in the core of the planet.
Light Matter is the opposite in effect. Humans and non-matter induced creatures are turned and take a volatile shift in form and live from it. Light Matter kills plants, it makes them duller, and slowly kills them off. Planets will rot from the inside out, white veins covering it’s surface in the final stages, and then the planet explodes. Creatures who can consume Matter also explode eventually in the same fashion.
The Final Matter
Anti-Matter. Also known as Red Matter.
Red Matter, or Anti-Matter, is dangerous. Far more Dangerous then Light Matter. Whatever it touches becomes a dangerous manifest of your worst nightmares. Syntexis Wraiths even keep away from Red Matter. This Matter is kept locked away int he far recesses of the Universe and is so isolated it cannot create it’s own Void home (such as Dark Matter living and Manifesting in The Void and Light Matter in Devoid). Anti-Matter does not kill, it merely recreates and causes chaos. No one knows where it comes from, or what it’s true intent is, however when affected with Anti-Matter, it is safe to say, there is no hope for you anymore.
