Card VI

In the heart of the dense forest, time is viewed from a different angle, one that follows global water cycles. Time is understood not only as linear but also cyclical, and the cycles of water are seen as a reflection of this. The movement of water is viewed as a dance, from the gentle flow of a stream to the crashing of the ocean waves, and the importance of this dance for the balance of life on the planet is acknowledged. The cycles of water are studied to gain knowledge about the planet and how different cultures perceive time. Different perspectives on time are acknowledged and how they can affect the interaction with the environment. The interconnectedness of time, water and life is understood, and how understanding these connections can help preserve the planet's resources. The study of the cycles of water is recognized as a way to understand the past, present and future and how it affects the culture and way of life.

Card VII

Under the glow of the fiery suns, all the states of water, whether it be in the form of precipitation, ice melt or flowing water, are interconnected and hold a unique beauty and importance. The circularity of water is observed, how it goes from the sky to the ground, to the rivers, and back to the sky, creating a closed loop. The value and importance of each state of water for the balance of life on the planet is recognized and the need to preserve them is acknowledged. These states are not seen as separate entities but rather as different manifestations of the same underlying element. The beauty of the different forms water takes is appreciated, from the softness of a raindrop to the strength of a river, and it is acknowledged that all these states are essential for the well-being of the planet and all its inhabitants.


In the depths of the underground caverns, the acoustic coloration is caused by echoes, reverberations and effects related to climatic factors. It is understood that the sound of the land is not just background noise, but a fundamental part of the natural world to be respected and protected. The use of these echoes and reverberations to create music and stories that reflect the soundscapes of the surroundings is an advantage. The acoustic coloration is also acknowledged to be affected by the climate, and the ability to predict and adapt to these changes is developed. The sound of the land is seen as a reminder of the beauty and power of nature and the importance of preserving it for future generations.

Card IX

In the midst of a fertile, rolling farmland, the portals between dimensions are not only a scientific marvel but also a cultural treasure.
