Author: Brett Baker (12:21 am)
Another excerpt from Song of the Multiverse, Vol 1. From Chapter 1 when Rin experiences the music of the multiverse for the first time:

Rin gradually became aware of the sensation of weightlessness. She floated on soft winds, with no ground below her, and nothing but shifting blues, greens, and purples to be seen in every direction. As if representing the passage from day to night to day again, the colors seemed to oscillate back and forth between lighter hues, and darker shades. And then she became aware of the music; the music that had been there the entire time, like a child hiding, playfully waiting to reveal itself. In a rising crescendo, the joyous, rapturous orchestral fanfare filled her soul full to brimming over.

And she became aware of a new melody as her own soul responded with its own music. The two songs soared and intertwined like a rising duet coiling around one another. She listened and heard her own voice responding as it joined with a countless chorus of voices singing together as one in this orchestral magnum opus of infinite proportions.

Then the chorus slowly faded, and the colors grew dark as they yielded to blackness while the music fell silent. Rin’s eyes slowly opened. She was awake; sleep still lingering in her tired, heavy eyes. She was in the bedroom of Watanabe’s safehouse. Lexi’s side of the bed was empty, but she sat nearby on a chair, scrolling through a list of search results on a holomenu that hovered before her.

“What time is it?” Rin asked sleepily. A holomenu appeared, displaying that it was 5:37 am. “Lexi?” Rin began, “What are you doing?”

“Searching for information on this Watanabe” Lexi replied as she continued to scroll past public profiles in the citizen database.

“Why?” Rin asked.

“I don’t trust him” Lexi replied. “Do you?”

“He seems to want to help us,” Rin answered. “And he hasn’t really given us any reason not to trust him.”

“There’s something he’s not telling us,” Lexi said. “I can feel it!”

“It’s late” Rin began. “Come back to bed.”

“Ah-ha!” Lexi exclaimed suddenly. “I’ve found him!” Lexi rotated the holomenu so Rin could see as a public profile expanded. It was certainly the same man.

“Kenjiro Watanabe” Lexi read aloud. “Born 2033. It says he works downtown. 410 Michigan Ave., Suite 133D.

“What are you going to do?” Rin asked.

“Get dressed,” Lexi replied. “We are going to go pay a visit to Watanabe’s office.”

From Chapter II, Rin and Watanabe discuss what Rin has been hearing:

While Lexi settled in to sleep, Rin went out on the rooftop of the building to listen.

She could again hear that symphonic chorus transposed over the sounds of the city. Finding a spot to settle in, she soaked the music in and let it fill her. Rin didn’t understand the significance of the music. She just knew she wanted more of it.

But she wasn’t there long before Watanabe appeared. “What are you doing up here?” he asked.

“Listening” Rin replied.

“You’re hearing that music again?” Watanabe offered as he settled down on his haunches next to her, and listened.

Rin nodded wordlessly.

“Have you ever heard it?” Rin asked finally.

Watanabe shook his head.

“What does it mean?” Rin asked. “That I can hear it but nobody else can?”

“I don’t know for sure,” Watanabe replied. “But I think it indicates that you share a very powerful connection to the multiverse.”

“What do you mean?” Rin asked.

“Most theorists like to believe that the universes of the multiverse are like bubbles in a drink, all coexisting at once. But that’s because those of us who have actually traversed the multiverse are few and we’re not a very chatty group. Earth is the central nexus of the multiverse. I don’t understand why it is, it just is. I believe all universes coexist in the same location, they just vibrate at different frequencies, kind of like the strings of a violin. Those vibrations rise, crescendoing to forte, and fall to piano in turn, together forming a harmony and a melody in the celestial symphony of existence. That, my dear, is what you are hearing; somehow you have tapped into the multiverse in its purest, most primal form.”

“But if you’ve never heard it, how do you know?” Rin asked.

“There are stories of a very select few who have heard the music. Special people who gained wisdom and insights beyond imagining, just from listening.”

They fell silent as they listened again, and Rin’s consciousness danced on the gentle lilting notes of the multiverse’s song.

“I’m scared” she finally admitted.

“Scared of what?” Watanabe asked in reply.

“Scared that the music will go away, and I won’t be able to hear it anymore.”

Watanabe smiled and he got to his feet. “I don’t think continuing to hear will be your challenge, Rin. The challenge will be understanding what you hear. I’m going inside now. Try to get some rest. We have a busy night ahead of us.”
