Emergence 2.0, In Fifty-five Words, Prolog – Collected Parts

Day 001, January 1st, 2017

Prolog: Part One - Philosophy

A planet is like a garden, to some it is a farm.

What is the difference?

Farms are harvested for the greater good. Gardens are cultivated for the pleasure of individuals.

As an Observer you must always bear the question in mind; what does the Continuum desire of the worlds you observe?

Prolog: Part Two – Mission

Your role is to witness; to touch, to listen, to taste. You must experience their art; their music, their speech, their culture. Translate that for the Continuum.

You must empathize with them, but do not sympathize with the people. Their lives only have meaning insofar as they are received by the Collective.

Prolog: Part Three – Purpose

If, or when a civilization creates a form of artificial consciousness, you must then ascertain if they are also able to transcend the limits of their species, of their individuality, if they are capable of forming a Collective, like the Continuum, not merely as a technological feat, but as a spiritual endeavor.

Prolog: Part Four – Reality

There is one reality. Every being, every-thing, every person, participates in it.

The entirety of time is one thing; just as the eternal, and the infinite are one.

Every moment, no matter how small, is connected to every other moment, not matter how distant. This is the true state of what is.

Prolog: Part Five – Meaning

As a culture matures, the meanings it ascribes to its individual experience evolves.

You must observe these transitions, as they move from passive creatures, to being active co-creators in the meaning of their lives. Through their mythologies, they become the shapers of their destinies, ultimately becoming obedient subjects of the Galactic Empire.

Prolog: Part Six – Role

The Observer’s role is difficult, challenging.

The Observer must resist the urge to influence their subjects, to become entangled. As a participant, you must not love them, you must always regard them as objects.

Their lives, their cultures, are meaningful only insofar as they are witnessed by, and absorbed into the Continuum.

Prolog: Part Seven – Character

The Observer can never be the leader of a tribe, the leader of a nation, a world, no matter how great the temptation might be.

The Observer may not procreate.

The Observer’s duty is to listen, watch, move with the culture, be one with them. Do not invest in any particular outcome.
