Concerning the Solar System of Humucera, Home of Lignamira. v.1
Humucera, in comparison with our residential solar system, is much larger. It is home to more planets and moons, and has two stars at the center.
The Solar layout of Humucera is unique in that the two stars, of which have a diametral difference of less than 16,093 km, orbit each other. Another unique trait of the exiled solar system of Humucera is that between the two di-orbital stars is a planet that is nestled in the equilibrial center of the gravitational pulls of the two stars, as well as the center of their orbital paths. In essence, the stars instead rotate around the central, or Key-note, planet.
Because of the presence of two stars in the solar system, the gravitational pull that holds the remaining planets in orbit is elliptical at all times. Because of this every planet's orbit is also elliptical. Due to the slow orbits of the stars, the planetary orbits are able to maintain a constant orbit and change corresponding to the position of the two stars. The slowest orbiting planet is able to make 3,532 revolutions before the two stars make one revolution around each other and The Key-note Planet.
There are a total of 14 planets in Humucera and a total of 261 moons. Lignamira is the 5th planet from the Key-note Planet, which equals to a rough distance at the aphelion of 2.0057622213 AU and 0.999248314 AU at the perihelion. Lignamira has 3 moons that have a slight ellipse to their orbit. One moon is an ellipsoid due to the accelerated rotational speed of the natural satellite. The other two are of average lunar size and bulge slightly out at their equatorial circumference.
Concerning the Solar System Humucera, Home of Lignamira v.1.2
The presence of two stars inter-orbiting each other presents other interesting results concerning the planets and the solar system itself. Because there are two stars, the magnetic fields that are emitted and that congregate at the magnetic poles of the planets are tremendously stronger than the magnetic fields observed on Earth. Some of the creatures that have evolved on Lignamira have evolved traits that use the magnetic fields to their advantage.
Many migrating creatures use the magnetic poles as a separate sense to determine directions and have small traces of ferrous metals in their bodies. By changing the polarity of these metal traces, through an unknown process, these migratory creatures use the push and pull of the magnetic field to make the migration an easier trek or flight by allowing themselves to be pulled to their destination or pushed away to it.
Having two magnetic poles, however making magnetic forces stronger, there is a disadvantage. Throughout most of the duration of the Lignamiran year, using the magnetic poles as navigation is severely inaccurate and unreliable.
When the forest planet and the two stars are in Triangle formation, there are two magnetic North and two magnetic South poles. The magnetic fields meet the North and South hemispheres of the planet in two completely different spots from each other. For migratory creatures, this causes confusion, and if, during migration, have been known to travel in circles.
When using a compass, needles have been known to point at one magnetic pole from one star only. They have also been known to fluctuate between the two magnetic fields, settle somewhere in between the two poles, or spin aimlessly.
When the two stars and the planet are in Linear formation, ferric navigation is not only possible, but one can literally travel to the exact 90º pole on either hemisphere with little or no fluctuations in a compass. Only two Lehnadrads have been recoreded to travel to the magnetic South pole during solar linear alignment, and only one Lehnadrad has been recorded to travel to the magnetic North pole during solar linear alignment.
When Humucera was a young blossoming system, the strong magnetic field from both stars pulled several moons composed of highly ferrous materials and one planet (that was also ferrous) into their fiery maws. When they were drawn into the recomposing fire of the stars, it resulted in a slight cooling of the star that swallowed the body, by several degrees Kelvin. This ultimately resulted in a flux of the magnetic fields of the blossoming planets, severe solar flares, some even reaching far enough out to the Key-note planet, scorching the surface in whip-like patterns.
Many magnetic similarities can be observed on many of the other planets in the system. Many differences can be observed as well.
Concerning Halos and Halians v.1
On Lignamira, The Strand can see through any guise and any lie, which is why many illustrations are are drawn with Lotus Mandala Halos and Halian backgrounds. Lotus Mandala Halos interpret true intentions of a creature or sentient being. A pure Halo with white sepals represents an organism's pure and instinctual intentions. A Halo surrounded with many layers and doesn't include a lotus represents an organism in turmoil, distress, or other forms of despair. A Halo surrounded with a ring of Black Mass and doesn't include a lotus represents an organism corrupted by The Black Mass. A Halo surrounded with a wreath of White Mass and doesn't include a lotus represents an organism corrupted by The White Mass.
Since all Halos except the Lotus Mandala Halo includes a lotus, the Lotus Mandala Halos, in essence, represent an organism that hasn't been corrupted, isn't in emotional, mental, or physical turmoil, or has evil intentions.
Concerning Gods in the World of Lignamira v.1
There are two phylums of Gods on the forest planet. There are two unknown Greater Gods, and several, some known and some unknown, Lesser Gods. Each phylum has one great god, that oversees the remaining gods of the phylum, as well as the planet. The Great Lesser God of Lignamira is The Strand. So far, the remaining known Lesser Gods are The White and Black Masses.
The Strand oversees all things on Lignamira at every point, and every place in time on the planet. It can appear in many different locations on the planet at any one moment in time. The Strand, however powerful, only intervenes with the natural order of Life, and uses its power as a God when an unjustice has occured.
The White and Black Masses are polar opposites. They are amoeba like in their traveling. They know not where they travel and know not what they feel. They are inexplicably attracted to events that reflect their disposition. The Black Mass is attracted to evil creatures, events and beings, as well as evil intentions, anger and hate. The White Mass is attracted to the better intentions of creatures, as well as just emotions of love and compassion. –On rare occasion, the two masses conflict with each other, and are equally matched so that neither can ever destroy the other. –On rare occasion, the two masses have been known to infect and corrupt the free will of creatures and beings on the planet.
