(Treebeard explains how his thought process works while in his 800’s compared to the other races on the base and ourselves here on Earth. It differs from the younger members of the base where his usual wait and dwelling on an answer long after the question has been asked is normal.)

Skip: I have a question young man.

Treebeard: young?

(laughter all around)

Skip: don’t mind me, that’s my colloquialism okay? But…..

Treebeard: ahh.

Skip: this young man…..

Treebeard: ahh.

Skip: all right?

Treebeard: so a boy is anybody younger than yourself, anyone older is young man, I understand.

Skip: okay all right now, this lady and myself….

Treebeard: uh-huh.

Skip: are under the impression that we are twin souls.

Treebeard: that is not for me to discuss.

Skip: oh I’m sorry, okay I stepped in the wrong place.

Treebeard: that is quite all right. Ask and you will receive an answer, it may not be the answer that you wish, but it is an answer. I am not saying……what I am saying is that it is not my field of expertise…..

Skip: oh okay, all right.

Treebeard: I cannot help you on that answer.

Skip: okay, okay, okay I just wondering if maybe our thought processes was the same.

Treebeard: they are similar from what I have looked over, I have not probed harshly or deeply, just a gentle, feathers touch of a probe to retrieve information to facilitate a more speedy…..I do dislike being fast and hasty.....

Skip: okay.

Treebeard: but it was necessary for my understanding to fit into your speed of communication and thought processes.

Skip: I know.

Treebeard: to be eloquent for your understandings, it is necessary for me to briefly see what communication levels and linguistic abilities you have so that I can communicate on a level that is with you as opposed to doing my normal thought processes which are long periods of silence punctuated by long, eloquent dissertations in my opinion.

Skip: okay.

Treebeard: I am not hasty as a rule, this for me is being very, very, very hasty.

Skip: okay.

Russ: yes I was there when he first talked to us and it was a complete change from now to then and when you see both you can see this is quite fast for him but is also quite educational........

Skip: uh-huh.

Russ: much more educational for us.

Treebeard: that is something that was pointed out to me that it is necessary unfortunately to be hasty for you so that it is easier for you to learn in a way that facilitates your growth. Unfortunately I have difficulties using short words to explain long meanings so the pauses that I have are whilst I think of alternative ways of communicating that is abbreviated to facilitate the learning process. I believe yes, one of my dissertations would include your whole recording medium that you are activating at this time would be one response to a question. I am used to questions being of equal length and dwelling on the questions at my convenience and responding in a way that gives full understanding. You see?

Russ: uh-huh.

Skip: uh-huh.

Treebeard: my response and pause was my answer before I made the phrase, "you see" was much, much longer so I had to think and dwell for a brief moment on something that would be substituted for my answer.

Russ: now is this something that happens as you get more through the sixth dimension and get closer to a transition forward to the next dimension?

Treebeard: ahh, your thought process and question were slightly different. It is something that becomes more active with more age, even for our race and species, with greater age comes greater patience and dwelling capability on questions and answers.

Russ: hmm.

Treebeard: yes, in a way that is something that also occurs on your dimensional level Skip.

Skip: thank you. Patience becomes a little bit more as you grow older.

Treebeard: we have phrase, "youth is wasted on the young".

Skip: yes, we have the same thing here.

Treebeard: yes, it is not a matter of patience but a matter of accepting as is the thought process being something that comes with maturity not in physical form but in mental capability.

Russ: hmm.

Treebeard: no, that is a wrong assumption, it is a assumption that all evolved species goes through the same thought patterns as they develop. Each species is different in its thought processes. For example up here we have two different races present, one thought processes is as a rule from the meetings I have with others of the same species fast, quick, one is analytic, the other person I have met in this species is more studious and scientific but the thought processes are similar in the speed that they work and the assumptions they come to.

(Tia and one of the other Durondedunns on the base)

Treebeard: the other people present up here at this time within the facility I am in, the processes are more slow, leisurely but cover a wider, possible outcomes. I’m being corrected, it is necessary for you to vocalize your questions.

Russ: (to the others) he’s also a gardener, one of the extremely fine gardeners on the base.

Skip: yeah?

Treebeard: I have a long way to go before I am extremely exceptionalbe, I try.

Skip: maybe not in our estimation okay?

Treebeard: I have a long way to go.

Laura: modesty is a virtue.

Treebeard: patience is a virtue.

Laura: oh yeah.

Treebeard: I have planted many different species of fauna that I will never see grow to fruition but I know one day I will do so, not in this physical form. I have also planted and witnessed fauna grow rapidly and disappear and return with new generations of their offspring. Okay I am being asked to…..the phrase would be to finish up?

Russ: uh-huh.

Treebeard: such a hasty phrase. Okay, any more questions?

Russ: no.

Skip: none for me.

Laura: none either.

Treebeard: okay.

Russ: thank you Treebeard.

Skip: thank you.

Laura: yes.

Treebeard: hmm.....hasty, a hasty word for something which such meaning.
