A monument that was the centre of every Householding that had on it the names of all those who had given their lives in the cause of Sime/Gen Unity.

From: Unto Zeor, Forever, Ch 7:  'There was only one room on this level, the Memorial to the One Billion. Every Householding had been built around such a room,”...a remembrance of the countless millions who had died during the fall of the civilization of the Ancients, during the ensuing Sime~Gen wars, during the thousand years of chaos and darkness of the human spirit.'

From: Sime Surgeon --- http://www.simegen.com/sgfandom/rimonslibrary/surgeon/SURGEON1.html    '...the Memorial to the One Billion--the billion Gens who had died before Rimon Farris discovered he didn't have to Kill in order to live.'


Source:  Index card file.  Sime Surgeon  http://www.simegen.com/sgfandom/rimonslibrary/surgeon/SURGEON1.html)  Refers to the billion Gens who died before Rimon Farris discovered his channel abilities and that he didn't have to Kill to live.  Householder habit to take personal problems to a Memorial.  Each Householding since Rimon's time had a room set aside for a Memorial --- now each Center had such an insulated area in a sub-basement.  Memorial of neither guilt nor pride, but a sobering reminder:  "Out of death was I born."  Words inscribed in gold on a black marble slab, surrounded by a pool of water.  Small name plates laid in the floor:  names of Gens upon whose death modern civilization was built --- each Householding had its own list and picked the top ten for the Centers to memorialize.

Only light came from an ever-burning small flame by the slab --- "a zone of incandescence" produced by one of the first selyn-consuming devices invented.  Had no use, but became the symbol of a new era of selyn-based technology in a channel-based society.  

Concepts and disciplines had grown up surrounding the Memorials, which became the heart of every Householding, and eventually, the Tecton, became known out-Territory as the sime religion (never known as a thing apart from theology.)

There is a privacy light over the Memorial room door.

(Source:  Index card file.  Unto Zeor, Forever)  Located in the second sub-basement of the Sime Center.  Every Householding had been built around such a room.  Remembrance of those who died in the collapse of civilization, Sime~Gen Wars, Chaos.

Memorial Hall --- inlaid spiral on the floor, of names of the martyrs of all the Householders, the Tecton and Westfield.  Very empty.  Had a light, but Digen didn't turn it on.  Huge double doors.  Custom for person to be alone ("occupied" light).

The Memorial's pledge:  "Out of Death was I Born --- Unto <name of Householding> forever!"  Digen turned to this when he lost his purpose in life.

Public Memorials --- Digen buried his House in one on the way to Rior
