Cataclysm Portal.jpg
The world will split in two...

Volume One: Cataclysm is a fan fiction series written by Creedog VanDrey. It is second part of his The World Entire series. It takes place in an alternate continuity during the Exposed Future shown in I Am Become Death, with many flashbacks dating from 1973 to 2008, and one fifteen-month flash-forward to introduce Volume Two: Progeny. It features a large cast of characters.

Chapters

There are 22 chapters in Volume One, which the main action occurring between the dates of August 31, 2011, and September 18, 2011. Each episode begins with a monologue, presumably by Mohinder, with the common theme of religion and spirituality. Each episode also includes a flashback, introducing all of the Company founders and many other past characters.


The Child in My Dreams

TWE1-The Child in My Dreams.jpg

Chapter 1

The Talmud tells us: "Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world." But what is to be done when the entire world really is in danger? Is it enough to save one life only to damn it when the ultimate tragedy cannot be averted? Too many lives hang in the balance, but perhaps, the greater tragedy would be that people stop saving the one when they try to save the many.

In 1989, Angela Petrelli visits Maury Parkman and asks him to retrieve a memory of a child in her dreams, a future grandchild. She asks him to join her in visiting Carlos Mendez, which he agrees to. In 2011, she sends Company agents Meredith Gordon and Victor Abano to ground zero of the Costa Verde Disaster to retrieve a threat. They balk at the issue of radiation, but Angela promises them Natural regenerator blood to heal them.


The Face in My Mind

Chapter 2

TWE2-The Face in My Mind.jpg

The Christian Gospels are filled with the stories of a man named Jesus of Nazareth, who performed a great many miracles. Perhaps most wondrous of all were his miracles of healing. He gave sight to the blind. He made the lame walk. He cast out demons. And he raised a man from the dead. Is this not enough to tell us that life is precious? That the human body, so complex and mysterious, is likely our most valued possession? And what about the soul? More than for healing the body, Jesus is credited for saving the soul. And what exactly is the separation between the two, if any at all?

After Daphne returns to her apartment and dies (I Am Become Death), Matt Parkman tries to use a packet of Claire’s blood to revive her while Molly unsuccessfully tries to keep her baby sister from crying; Matt succeeds in reviving her but she remains in a coma-like state. Back in 1989, Angela takes Maury to visit Carlos Mendez, where she commissions young Isaac to draw an image of the face in her mind.


The Blood Between Us

Chapter 3

TWE3-The Blood Between Us.jpg

Blood is life. Every religion has its ties to blood. The Aztecs performed human sacrifices as a tribute to the sun god Huitzilopochtli. Germanic pagan tribes performed Blóts, sacrifices of blood. It is expressly forbidden to be consumed in Jewish and Islamic law. Christians believe that wine becomes the blood of Christ. The vampire myths all speak of the drinking of blood to attain immortality. Is it any surprise that we call the act of murder "shedding blood"? Or that we call our family "our blood"?

After Peter Petrelli splits open Nathan's head, Claire has a superstrong agent to break open the door to the morgue and saves her father by injecting him with her blood. Back in 2001, Angela enlists Kaito Nakamura and Victoria Pratt to figure out which of her sons will birth the child she has waited for. Using a summary of genetic inheritance provided by Victoria, Kaito examines the data and determines that the child must be Gabriel and Elle Bishop’s, and that he will have a resurrecting ability. Back in 2011, this prophecy comes true when Meredith discovers the Special she and Victor are after is indeed Noah Gray.


Second Chances

Chapter 4

TWE4-Second Chances.jpg

"Worn-out garments are shed by the body; Worn-out bodies are shed by the dweller within the body. New bodies are donned by the dweller, like garments." These are the words of the Bhagavad Gita about reincarnation. Reincarnation is hardly unique to Hinduism. Perhaps the beliefs echo our lives. Every day gives us a new opportunity to become a new person, for better or for worse. We can strip off the garments of hatred and revenge, tattered with overuse, and put on instead clothes of mercy and selflessness. Will we then become gods, as karmic rewards for our devotion to goodness? But why then take us away from the struggles of the world when we are at that point best suited to correct them?

Nathan and his entourage travel to Brooklyn to visit Matt Parkman. The Haitian blocks Matt's telepathy, alerting Matt to the fact that the President is really there. Under a cone of silence provided by an agent, Nathan tries to recruit Matt Parkman to replace his wife at Pinehearst. Matt is initially skeptical, but Nathan promises him medical services for his wife and schooling for his daughters, so Matt agrees. Back in 1974, Arthur Petrelli and Paula Gramble, using her ability of Probability manipulation to find him, recruit Maury to the newly-forming Company. In the present, Meredith brings Noah back to the Barstow Primatech Facility, noticing his invulnerability and strength. Once there, Meredith takes an injection of regenerator blood and Angela admits that she foresaw his birth.


Families

Chapter 5

TWE5-Families.jpg

Family is of sacred importance in Islam. The Prophet Mohammad declared to his followers: "Marry each other and produce new off-spring so that your numbers may increase." The Qu’ran demands that husband and wife be equal in marriage and that the husband should treat his wife with kindness. It demands the same of parents to their children, and to children it demands respect for their parents. But what is it really that makes us love those that we share blood or affection with? Is it just biological, a by-product of evolution? Mothers of all species protect their young. Or is there more? Does God put that love in us, like a reflection of His love? Does it come from chemicals in the brain... or from the soul? This love keeps families together. Yet somehow there are forces that can tear that bond apart. Perhaps that is the greatest tragedy of our species.

Gabriel and Elle rush to Primatech to find their resurrected son, Noah, safe and sound. Meredith forces Angela to admit to her foreknowledge of Noah's birth, which angers Elle but only mildly annoys Gabriel. To prevent Elle from leaving in a huff, she tells about Noah's ability. Elsewhere, Matt begins his first day at Pinehearst, meeting his team lead Claire Bennet, and his boss Arthur Petrelli. Back at Primatech, First Lady Tracy Petrelli visits to facility to check on Noah, and to inquire about the whereabouts of the past Peter Petrelli. Though the meeting begins cordial, she is soon met with hostility because of the rivalry between the two companies, as well as Pinehearst's part in Peter's death.


The Lives We Live

Chapter 6

TWE6-The Lives We Live.jpg

One of the central philosophies in Buddhism is the timelessness of self. The self always was, never wasn’t, always is, and always will be, never to cease existing. To even consider otherwise is simply counterproductive. In this mindset, much becomes meaningless: possessions, vengeance, greed, lust, responsibility, even love. However, it is just as large of sin to neglect the next world for this one as the other way around. The Fourteenth Dalai Lama once told Pope John Paul II that one thing he admired about the Christian Church was its dedication to social justice, that it was a virtue too long neglected among Buddhists. The greatest mission for any person must be to help another, to help all, to help self, or the world will surely crumble.

User:CreedogV/TheWorldEntire/Micah Sanders, while working on a robotic dragonfly, is visited by his Aunt Tracy. Matt uses his position at Pinehearst to kidnap Peter's body from the morgue after it heals in Claire's presence. He attempts to rescue Molly from Pinehearst's academy, but she's already escaped. In Ikitsuki, Japan, Hiro is attempting to map the timeline, but can't remember all his changes, and misses a former love. In 1994, Bob Bishop and a 12-year-old Elle Bishop drop in on a 17-year-old Gabriel at his father's watch repair shop. Already, Gabriel is demonstrating his ability, but Bob doesn't recognize it as an ability. Elle develops a crush on Gabriel.


Turning the Tide

Chapter 7

In Greek mythology, the gods lorded over the mortals. The Greeks believed their gods to be petty and temperamental, showing favoritism. In other words, like themselves, only wielding great power. A victory in war was attributed to favor with the god Ares or goddess Athena. A massive, ship-wrecking storm was the work of an unsatisfied Poseidon. Though, if history has told us anything, there is a balance between fate and free will. Our actions have consequences, even if we can’t see them. Some things cannot be avoided, but as humans we are given the reasoning to react to them in a productive—or detrimental—manner. But what can we do when we see the seemingly inevitable storms of the future on the horizon? Do we dare challenge the will of the gods and make our own destiny? And, if we succeed, what would we find when we get there?

Monica, in the guise of St. Joan, captures Xavier Daniau. She's a Company agent and is partnered with Lyle Bennet. Matt confronts Peter in a mind trap. Gabriel and Elle enjoy a domestic moment and Gabriel decides to rejoin the Company. Molly arrives at Mohinder's lab.


The Right Choice

Chapter 8

The Wiccan Rede, the guiding philosophy of morality of Wicca, is “Do as ye will, as long as ye harm none.” Life is a path, a long succession of diverging roads where one must make a decision. Fight or flight. Love or loss. Step up or step off. The road less traveled by. Turn the other cheek. Join or die. Coffee or tea. Every moment, every second, every heartbeat, is an opportunity to take a stand against the wrongs of the world. Or to cower and retreat. Life is a test by fire. Can we know what choices we will make when the time comes? Surely not. But can we fight in the present, ruling the time we have now to be too precious? That, my friend, is the question we should be asking ourselves.

While being transferred, Xavier manages to escape, fatally injuring Lyle, but is killed by Monica while trying to flee. Monica stabilizing Lyle and is both chastised and lauded by her superior, Amy Carlson. Ando breaks into Yamagato Industries, and confront the CEO, Kimiko Nakamura about Hiro's whereabouts. Kimiko is calm, resolute, and protective, and attempts to use her Synthetic ability to seduce Ando, who finally concedes once he and Kimiko come to an understanding that he will not hurt Hiro. Matt lets Peter out of his trance, and the two resolve to save the world together once they find Molly, which Peter does after teaching himself her ability. Gabriel, on his first day of work back with the Company, is partnered with Ryan Covington by Angela. Elle and her partner, Bess Detskij arrive and announced the two partnerships have been assigned to work together on a case in LA.


The First Domino

Chapter 9

Eschatology is the study of the end of the world. The nature of the end differs among religions. Most major religions predict a catastrophic destruction of mankind and a physical or figurative burning of the Earth. Mysticism believes that reality will simply dissolve away and our souls will be reunited with the Divine. It is often portrayed so frighteningly that most would assume that it is a disaster that should be averted. But some believe that it is merely an inevitable destination, a metaphysical manifestation of times of change. Regardless, both sides of the debate would agree on one thing: one must prepare, physically, mentally, and spiritually. But that begs the question, why haven't we already started?

The First Step

Chapter 10

War and religion have always been bedfellows. The Greeks and the Romans prayed to their gods for favor during wars. The God of the Old Testament was a Warrior God, smiting the unrighteous. Middle Age knights were warriors of the Church, crusading against Moslems and pagans. Of the Four Horsemen the Apocalypse, one is a Conqueror and the second the embodiment of War. Every species fights for land, for resources. It is the very foundation of evolution: persevere or perish. When the lines are drawn, will we have it in us to slaughter our fellow man? Will we join hands with our brothers and sisters, our fathers and mothers, our sons and daughters, our husbands and wives? And when the last enemy is slain, who will be left standing? The righteous? The mighty? The lucky? And will it be worth it? God save our souls, for we cannot.

Who We Are

Chapter 11

To the outside world, the indigenous culture of the Mexican people might seem obsessed of death. The dichotomy between life and death is central to bull fights. Día de Los Muertos is an annual celebration of the dead. Skulls and skeletons become a ubiquitous motif across the country. While to the uninformed it may appear as if the Mexican people are celebrating something most cultures find sorrowful, the truth is that the Mexican are using the time to pray for and remember their beloved ancestors. The holiday is used in some areas to be a subversive means of criticizing a corrupt and unstable government through the use of sarcastic eulogies. In essence, they have an understanding of the deceased not completely different than the rest of the world: Death is an opportunity to remember the lives of those who are no longer living. What is their legacy? How many people did they touch? How many people did they hurt? Did they die doing what they loved or doing the right thing? Or, even more important, did they live doing the same?

What We Have Become

Chapter 12

To the outside world, the indigenous culture of the Mexican people might seem obsessed of death. The dichotomy between life and death is central to bull fights.

An Irresistible Force

Chapter 13

In some ways atheism requires just as much faith as theism. To believe so strongly in the complete lack of a higher being takes courage. Sometimes it feels as if we live in an impassionate world. Good people die. Bad people live. No deity with any sense of charity would let such atrocities plague this world. And no devil is malicious enough to allow even a speck of joy into the world just so it can be taken away. What possesses us to believe in a being we readily admit we can't comprehend? What possesses us to deny that Irresistible Force that tries to move the immobile object we call our world?

An Unbreakable Loyalty

Chapter 14

A cult religion is defined by a religious grouping outside the mainstream that is regardless as dangerously obsessive to its members by the outside world. A cult is often accused of mind control, isolating its adherents from the outside world and emphasizing an oversimplified solution to their problems, often being the religion itself. Of course, most groups labeled as such reject the negative connotation of the term. Such blind loyalty can be dangerous, but where is the line drawn? Christianity and Buddhism emerged out of Judaism and Hinduism as small, devout sects. And armies utilize similar tactics to bring unity and a sense of brotherhood to their troops. There is just as much danger as giving no trust as there is too much. What part of a man's soul allows him to shake hands with another without fear of violence? What part allows him to sacrifice himself, his life for another man? When sacrifices are made, will we revere or ridicule them? The day will come, many times, when a line is drawn, and people must choose their sides.

The Tongue of Deceit

Chapter 15

Glossolalia, better known as "speaking in tongues," is the phenomenon where the religiously fervent, so filled with ecstasy, began to speak nonsensically. It is theorized that the zealous are speaking some sort of celestial language. In the Bible, followers of Jesus Christ, overcome with the Holy Spirit, began speaking in tongues, and found themselves able to understand one another. Human are hardly unique in the ability to make vocal sounds. True we have one of the most complex speech organ systems. But it is our brains that make us truly unique. Not only have we developed thousands of languages and hundreds of thousands of dialects, which constantly evolve, but our words have more potential than we give them credit for. Our words exchange information, recount stories both true and fictional, and even elicit emotion. But perhaps most intriguing is our ability of deception. Nothing binds truth to our words but our own moral compass. What else give us so much power?

Falling Angels

Chapter 16

While popular culture and mythology depicts demons as malevolent spirits or corporeal hell-creatures, the original Greco-Roman daemon was a disembodied spiritual force with no evil—or necessarily good—intent. Freud theorized that demons represented the grief experienced by loved ones who had recently died. In fact, even Aleister Crowley stated that demons were a useful metaphor for certain inner psychological processes. Superstition or not, demons represent the dark urges inside of us: to take, to hurt, to kill. For some, the resistance to sin is a great stone wall, for others a meager thread. Some can be saved. Some cannot.

Return Ghosts

Chapter 17

The Chinese culture has a respect for the past. Part of their religion is the reverence of their ancestors. It was Confucius who said "Study the past if you would define the future." Perhaps for us, it is a lesson not to live solely in the present. Each of us has something to learn from the experiences that made us who we are today. It could be a defining moment. It could be an old friend that reminds us of a better time. It could be an ancestor who taught us something, even if it was something to avoid. It could even be the face in the mirror, whose past actions still haunt us. Regardless of which ghost of the past we face, can we really risk not heeding their advice?

Beckoning Titans

Chapter 18

Storms. Fires. Droughts. Famines. Conquerors. Death. These are the things that led the cultures of antiquity to believe that they worshiped proud and demanding gods. So, to gain favor, they sent gifts... sacrifices. The Israelites burned crops and slaughtered livestock. The Greeks did the same for their pantheon. The Aztecs practiced human sacrifice. Even today we are not exempt from holy duties. Muslims make pilgrimages to Mecca. Jehovah's Witnesses proselyte from door-to-door. Latter-Day Saints do as well, and take missions of good works. Many Christians become missionaries, spending years helping the poor, sick, and broken-hearted. Some become monks or nuns. Buddhists become ascetics like founder, Gautama, did. True as it is that we have free will, there is no denying that we live our lives by codes. We are bound to obey the laws of our country. We follow the rules, spoken and unspoken, of our jobs and our families and ourselves. Do we dare deny the wisdom our forefathers? Can we submit ourselves to the duties we cannot defy? Or else, face the consequences. The storms of chaos. The fires of punishment. The famines of love.

Every Moment

Chapter 19

Animism is the belief that all things, everything, has a soul. People. Animals. Plants. Rocks. Thunder. Mountains. Rivers. Great philosophers from Plato to Aristotle to Aquinas espoused such beliefs. Many tribal religions incorporate animist beliefs. They respect the sacredness of all things. Every moment. Are they that far off? Do we dare ignore the significance that emerges from even the simplest and unprofound events? Perhaps if we were able to know the truth of every occurrence, we could then understand the truth of the universe.

The Moment of Conflict

Chapter 20

Truth is a commodity. Those that take claim of some metaphysical truth break away from a different truth. Buddhism forms out of Hinduism. Judaism forming out of Idolatry. Christianity out of Judaism. Catholicism from East Orthodox. Protestantism from Catholicism. A hundred denominations emerge. These thousands of schisms create conflict. The fight over truth. The righteous versus the damned. Law versus crime. Mountains are torn down. Forests are set ablaze. Blood saturates the ground. And out of this massacre, the truth will rise out of the ashes, shining a beacon to all. It illuminates the rumble that where majestic mountains once sat, the coals where proud trees once stood, the mud where human life was spilled over the dirt. But does this truth rejoice or weep?

The Truth of the Moment

Chapter 21

One of the many tenants of the Jain religion is the understanding that all behaviors, physical and mental, have consequences in this life and beyond. Jainism emphasizes non-violence, honesty, celibacy, and non-possession for these reasons. This harkens to the butterfly effect, where every action causes ripples that will forever affect the universe. Yet regardless of our perceptions of these phenomena, the truth is that tragedies befall us on a daily basis. The seeds we sow may cause the downfalls of empires. But we cannot let the wind toss us about. We have to rise up, raise our swords, and face down the storms. That is where we will find the heart of a true hero.

The Moments to Come

Chapter 22

According to the Mayan calendar, the thirteenth bak'tun cycle will end somewhere between December 21 and 23 of the year 2012 C.E. Many religions and pseudo-religions have taken this date to be the moment of the end of the world. However, it should be noted that even the ancient Mesoamerican cultures did not consider this date to be the point of any apocalypse, merely a resetting of the cycle, and possibly a great cultural shift. They believe that life would go on. This harkens to the fact that even the Judeo-Christian End of Days is a misnomer. They believe that the Earth will survive another thousand years in Paradise. Every change in our life, every graduation, every job change, every marriage, every birth, it all signals not an end to things, but a continuation of them; a landmark on a journey with no final destination. What are we trying to escape from? And when will we learn to appreciate the moments to come?
