Gor versus earth - Part 22

  • Tal dear reader,

    In this "Gor versus earth" I would like to take a deeper look into eternal youth.

    On earth, the Holy Grail is the subject of numerous myths and legends. 

    The Holy Grail is traditionally thought to be the cup that Jesus Christ drank from at the Last Supper and that Joseph of Arimathea used to collect Jesus’s blood at his crucifixion. From ancient legends to contemporary movies, the Holy Grail has been an object of mystery and fascination for centuries. Scores of people have hunted for this sought-after Christian relic.

    The Holy Grail became a popular theme in medieval literature, and stories about it were read and recited throughout Europe.

    Some Arthurian tales claimed that Joseph of Arimathea brought the Grail to Glastonbury in England. One legend has it that on the spot where he buried the Grail, the water runs red because it travels through Christ’s blood, though scientists agree this is just the effect of red iron oxide in the soil.

    Others believed the Knights Templar, a medieval order that protected pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land, seized the Holy Grail from the Temple Mount during the Crusades and secreted it away.

    The mythical literary figure, King Arthur, was said to coordinate great spiritual expeditions to search for the enigmatic relic. Legends hold that the Grail had the power to heal all wounds, deliver eternal youth and grant everlasting happiness. (source:The British Library)

    "Goreans, of the caste of physicians," he said, "long regarded ageing not as a fatality to which they must be naively resigned, but merely as another malady to which their craft might be addressed, one to be remedied."
    "I have heard of such research on Earth," she whispered.
    "It has come to a successful conclusion on Gor," he said."

    On Gor we have the stabilization serums to keep us young...

    "At one time," said he, "centuries ago, men of my caste claimed age was incurable. Others did not accept this and continued to work. The result was the Stabilization Serums."

    "She requires the Stabilization Serums," said the physician. The guard nodded. "They are administered in four shots," said the physician. He nodded to a heavy, beamed, diagonal platform in a corner of the room. The guard took me and threw me, belly down, on the platform, fastening my wrists over my head and widely apart, in leather wrist straps. He similarly secured my ankles. the physician was busying himself with fluids and a syringe before a shelf in another part of the room, laden with vials."

    We returned, similarly, to the physicians house on the next four days. On the first day I had been examined, given some minor medicines of little consequence, and the first shot in the Stabilization Series. On the second, third and fourth day I received the concluding shots of the series. On the fifth day the physician took more samples. "The serums are effective," he told the guard.

    Captive of Gor, page 94.

    "Among these advances, or capabilities,if you prefer, are the Stabilization Serums. These ensure pattern stability, stability of organic patterns, without degradation,....,The Stabilization Serums, in effect, arrest aging, and, thus, preserve youth."

    And then there is the drug that reverses the aging process...

    "There has been a new development in the Stabilization Serums, or, better, I suppose, serums rather analogous to the Stabilization Serums, a development which has occurred in my own lifetime, indeed within the last few years" he said "In this development, though there are dangers associated with it, and it is not always effective, it is often possible to reverse the typical aging process to an earlier point, and then stabilize it at that point."

    But then again we can ask ourselves like in the Queen song: Who wants to live forever?

    I wish you well,

    Yahto
