A Precinct For Gods

Franklinford, Australia

This Franklinford, Australia site was once home to one of the remotest churches of its faith according to the parallel world of the Kcymaerxthaere. 


Created by Geographer-at-Large Eames Demetrios, Kcymaerxthaere is a “parallel universe that intersects with much of our linear Earth, but with different stories, creatures, peoples, even laws of physics and qualities of existence.”  It has been likened to a novel with every page in a different place. What makes the Kcymaerxthaere project particularly interesting is that Demetrios installs informative markers and historical sites at the locations in our world that connect to his world, creating real-world intersections with his imagined universe. For the months of August and September, 2014, Demetrios acted as our first ever Geographer-in-Residence and his Kcymaerxthaere locations continue to be featured all over the Atlas.  To learn more see our introductory article here

Just off the Daylesford/Franklinford road, you’ll see a road cut that leads to a church (as always respect people’s private property).  Before you get too far, you’ll see this marker, part of the world of Kcymaerxthaere.  (On the other hand, it has no connection to the abandoned tennis court around the corner.)

In the runup to the Battle of Some Times (one of the epic confrontations of Kcymaerxthaere), there were many ominous threads. One was Kmpass’ practice of kidnapping people and creatures from around the world as part of his successful plan to provoke a final conflict where the complexity of the worlds was destroyed.  This gwome was no exception, with 3 famous victims. For those familiar with the subtle nuances of the cultures here, there was an extra level of poignance given the special meaning of the word Kmpass in the Jihn Wranglikan tongue for their was a beautiful Jihn Wranglikan tdgurtdg (place of worship in their tongue) in the precinct.

Know Before You Go

It is right near the old center of Franklinford, which is not that far from Daylesford. There is even an old tennis court up the hill going through some delightful entropy.
