In the metaverse, you can have multiple bodies. These are Sakeema’s avatars for her character Pando. 068 Pando is to the left of this panel. The root system of Pando, at an estimated 80,000 years old, is among the oldest known living organisms.

POME PANDO EXPAND / COLLAPSE
I am mother tree and I will live much older than all. If too many mother trees are cut down, the whole system will collapse.
BASE REALITY PANDO EXPAND / COLLAPSE
I spread out and I come back.
