Jacob Krim – Migrations in the Americas. Part V

We return to the migrations, the second exodus and a new corner of the triangle (or now, polygon) of despair. 

Some years after Krim originally left the new world, he would return to a continent now much changed from what He first had known. The lands, once innocent, inhabited only by fertile beast and primitive man, were now infected by the very same illness as Old Evropa. Yes! That disease of bourgeois civilates! It had indeed reached this new world, this young land. Were she as hopelessly infected as kontinent ancìen?

civilates

In the newly formed cities and towns, peoples of many letters would wander aimlessly in poverty and despair. Their eyes filled with the sorrow of failed promises and lost hope. These lands where once filled with dreams: dreams long gone.

Smoke rises only from factories and burning woods.
No longer from native campfires many..

Un-religion is now spoken in churches and on the street.
Where did you go, blessed innocence?

– Jacob K.

He decided to journey south, back to the town where he first settled. But in Jocotepec the first school was in ashes, its ruins the only remnant of its greatness…

And He knew!

He knew that the world could no longer be divided into Old and New. For when un-logik and tragedie know no borders, then neither can He.

Jacob Krim – Migrations in the Americas. Part III.

In the latter half of the eighteenth century Krim returned to the westernmost continent, hearing the people there were in uproar. He enlisted in the 6th company of the Northampton Militia and fought under the great Capt. John Trexler.  While he did not choose to be a military leader himself, he kept the moral of the men high, sharing his knowledge on boolean algebra and graph theory.

The war ended, the Krimean Militia the victors! Krim himself however had disappeared, nowhere to be found. Rumours were many, but most of his followers believed he had more important works in other, far away, lands.  It is however known that before he vanished he bought land and restarted his academy, hoping to continue the work he previously had abandoned in the fair town of Jocotepec.

It is not known for how long the academy lived, some say it still does!

Jacob Krim – Migrations in the Americas. Part II.

Krim and his followers had to flee Jocotepec, expelled by the cohort of the depraved  Conquistador Pascal Chr. Nerich. These where harsh times for the Krimean collection and many where tempted to fall off to join the tempting but loathsome Nerich logic and thus betray their true comrades. But few actually did, it is said that the leadership of  Jacob gave the people unlimited bliss. His theorems and conjectures in the fields of combinatorics and graph theory with applications in the topology of discretely shaped objects increased the faith in his teachings and grew stronger even as the times got more burdensome. But the winds of fortune changed and Krim led his people to a sanctuary. The followers of Krim still refer to this duration as “the traversal from despair through insight to delight”.

Not much is known of where Krim wandered and found sanctuary in these wicked years, some imply he for some time kept house in the Peruvian Andes, while others claim he resided in the Sonoran Desert. Both may be true, but the traces of Krim in the Americas after the displacement from Jocotepec are few and scattered.  The old tomes of the Krimean following suggest that Krim returned to his native Eurasia to continue his work on the granite matrices and later return to the new world.

Jacob Krim – Migrations in the Americas. Part I.

The lore of Krim’s travels in the new world is mysterious. His vague footprints are scattered in both time and space, but persons of pure letters agree that his arrival can be traced back to the Spanish colonization of Mexico. During this time it is said that he founded the town of Jocotepec and therein graph theoretical knowledge flourished and prospered. But the Spaniards did not agree on this Krimean graph doctrine and hurled upon this town a fierce inquisition. To this day most history books deny the true origin of Mexico’s most bewitching and pulchritudinous township. Despite his all knowing dogma Krim and his followers had to flee the newborn settlement. Krim wandered in to the unknown…
