00 - Other
The other card represents freedom. Representing the other major phyla separate from those most known and visible life forms, this card is almost a 'joker' of sorts. Freedom from the limitations of ones own place in life, one should look to escape that which they both love and fear. To move beyond constrains of worldly concern into the boundless unknown. Archea, Chromista, Protista, and Bacteria all form their own impressive kingdoms full of a variety of important creatures that determine the viability of life on our planet, and yet they do so in novel, incredible ways that science has only yet begun to better understand. While some of their forms are familiar and some have had many centuries of study, these kingdoms still struggle to be defined in meaningful ways among their fellow organisms.
