The OCTAHEDRON OF TRANSCENDENCE (also just called THE OCTAHEDRON) is the leading MacGuffin of surreal memes. It's an extremely powerful shanpe that can allow most beings to TRANSCEND, among other things.
THE OCTAHEDRON is a large multicolored Octahedron. Under most circumstances, it is simply a mixture of dull greens, purples, and oranges. However, when it becomes activated, it glows a bright yellow. Its power can also only be used when it is active.
Any carbon-based lifeform who obtains THE OCTAHEDRON in its active state will gain the following powers:
Transcendence (Can also be gained from the Elephoont of Shapes)
- The ability to control the shapes (Orang sought this power to unleash VEGETAL upon the universe)
- The ability to anihilate the entire universe (The Pillars seek the Octahedron for this purpose)
- Infinite duplication
- seeing the truth
In order to acquire the Octahedron, these must be true:
- Two equal carbon-based life forms seek it.
- They trust each other.
- They manage to solve the Riddle of the Rocks.
