The Halls are an imaginary device/supporting area I have imagined for my specific stories. They are the product not of our conscious imagination, but of the subconscious, and here reside the pool of general ideas that humanity has and has in store for further imagination. The Halls are the native place of the beings that are actually simply called “ideas”, because these are characters meant to maintain from behind imagination as we know it, yet without making themselves felt. Grey ideas, colored ideas (attackers and defenders) and some other like them reside here. But the most important being that inhabits the Halls is the very first imaginary beings (theoretically accepted). This being is also called the being of the Halls or the nameless being and it is the most powerful imaginary being of all imaginary creatures.


The being of the Halls is a very important and peculiar character from my stories. I could write a lot about it, but I hope that the concentrated ideas above are enough to help you have an idea about what it means. The nameless being is chosen only theoretically as the first imaginary being ever, from the times humans did not yet know that what’s in their mind is no longer real, but that they are fantasying and in fact beginning to imagine unreal things, no just thinking about real reality. And thus, the first imaginary being appeared, in times out of mind. It never had a name of its own and it remained the most powerful imaginary being. However, he remain a human creation, a mortal created being, and thus, about how wise it is or how well he can use this power, is yet another problem to be solved… and he is  not above the moral regulations and their restraint on power, and therefore, many stories can be said about such a being even if the “most powerful” feat may seem shocking. It’s just a most powerful imaginary mortal being amongst other imaginary mortals.

It is not a being with  a material body. The first imaginary being is an essence, a pure imaginary idea, the imaginary idea of imagination itself inside imagination probably. J Whenever it comes to the geographical and material lands of imagination, it has to borrow a shape/body but that is not an authentic body. Therefore, the pictures of this being are mostly *symbolical* an conventional: gracious flowing shapes, the bright spectral colors of the Halls (blue-green hues, like turquoise or spring green) and many wings to show its power as basic symbols.

This being has no authentic body, and is, therefore, neither male, nor female by biological features. However, this being is being conventionally referred to as a “he”.

You have in here varied symbolic imageries of this being.


This particular drawing shows you the most classical imagery of this nameless being of the Halls - every symbol out there, the many types of wings and especially the flowing shape that sheds light... including a sketch of his specific "medallion" or most known symbol: a sphere with feather, down from which a spider (with feathers) weaves his web/cobweb, which is the last piece of the jewel. A bigger picture only of this symbol is also available (picture 9 of the Halls).
