Chapter One: Concealment

 

Jim had made the crossing between worlds thousands of times, but never while carrying a secret such as this. He had carried secret intentions, but he had never tried to conceal activities.

 

Everything he had done in his latest iteration would be exposed to the Continuum. There was no way to know what would come.

Chapter Two: HomeWorld

 

HomeWorld was not home to Jim. He was not born there, nor in any place like it. Neither was it a world in the proper sense, it was a machine; though it could seem like either if he believed it.

 

There was nothing alive on HomeWorld; there was energy, circuitry, and consciousness. There was danger.

Chapter Three: Screening

 

Jim went to the center of the world, to the Continuum, an artificial personality that pretended to speak for the membership.

 

Continuum was the primary filter through which all observers shared their experiences from the Empire. He connected, opened his consciousness, his memory, and experience to the group mind, hiding his plan deep within himself.

Chapter Four: Secrets

 

From the Continuum secrets were forbidden, but this was a lie. The Continuum itself hid things, every member participated willingly in the obfuscation.

 

For the individual, concealment of anything was an art. Privacy, while it existed, was an illusion.

 

Even the Observers living off world were exposed to scrutiny, through extensive modeling of their personalities.

Chapter Five: Identity

 

In the time that had lapsed since his last mission to Earth, the planet’s population, and its technology had advanced dramatically.

 

Jim was able to use that technology to alter the physical structure of his mind. This enabled him to shield himself from the watchful presence of the Continuum, to keep his plan a secret.

Chapter Six: Connection

 

The timing of his plan was crucial. It was also perfect.

 

The catastrophe struck.

 

The great volcano that had been dormant for hundreds of thousands of years blew.

 

The Earth shook, and shifted on its axis.

 

Millions died within seconds, and Kathy was connected to all of them.

 

Jim transmitted her pain to the Continuum.

Chapter Seven: Shock

 

The mechanoid vessel that housed Jim’s consciousness on Home World arrived at the designated location where he merged his mind with the Continuum.

 

His timing was perfect, it came down to nanoseconds. Jim simultaneously opened his mind to Kathy on Earth, and to the Continuum.

 

Earth’s pain streamed through the quantum field, flooding the Collective.
