When performing the ‘summoning storm’ operation recently I had a surprise apparition of the KIA Egregore who requested I restore her KIA Speaks program. Last night I got this restored, at least in a basic form.
Originally each member of KIA had to submit some number of sentences to the KIA Egregore, I think perhaps three, before they were admitted into KIA. The KIA Speaks program would then select five of these at random to create a unique paragraph. This served as a kind of divination tool for contact with the Egregore, available to all members and even non-members who clicked on the page.
This new version does not require all agents submit sentences, but each agent may contribute sentences to the egregore as they please. To do so, please visit the KIA Speaks source quotes page and leave a comment with a single sentence. (Multi sentence comments will be deleted). Ideas for comments include:
- Something you thought of yourself, maybe a personal catch-phrase.
- A favourite line from a book, comic, film, essay, blog post or poem.
- Take a book you like and pick a page at random, then select a sentence from that page, maybe also at random.
- A line from the KIA litany.
- The motto of a group or organisation you feel aligned to.
But really your imagination is the limit here. Lets get as many quotes into KIA Speaks as possible!
To start her off again, I selected 73 sentences from the old KIA Speaks, those preserved for all time by the Internet Archive. But these will soon get repetitive if we don’t expand her collection.
Finally, you probably want to try out listening to what she has to say. You can do so on the KIA Speaks page. This looks a bit rough at the minute, but I’ll slowly improve it as I add more features.
