Chapter One: Identification

The Continuum almost exclusively selected the Observers from among its members who had returned to consciousness, after falling into deep silence.

Those members disturbed the collective, questioning the purpose and meaning of the Continuum itself.

It was considered a benefit to them and to everyone, to send them back into the living fields of experience.

Chapter Two: Assignment

When the Continuum decided to send a member out to the Observer Corp, it effectively removed the influence of that person from the Collective.

This provided relief for the suffering of the individual, and relieved the Collective of a weight that brought down the whole.

The Continuum kept a copy of the member in stasis.

Chapter Three: Mission

The Observers left the Continuum to live ordinary lives with the people of the Empire, returning every one-hundred solar cycles to re-enter the collective consciousness, and feed both the triumphs and tragedies they had witnessed to the Continuum. This was the most intimate way by which the Collective took in what transpired throughout the galaxy.

Chapter Four: Incorporation

To become an Observer meant returning to a corporeal form, to having a body. It meant living again as an organic life form on the observed world. It also meant having a mechanoid form when on the Central Planet, on returning to HomeWorld. It was a life apart from the insidious pressures of the Collective.

Chapter Five: Watching

There are many forms of observation; satellite imaging, and measurements, audio and video recordings. These tools, among others, were utilized by the Observer Corps. However, the primary method used by the Observers themselves, was to live with people.

Direct observation conveyed the emotional realities themselves directly to the Collective.

This is what the Continuum craved.

Chapter Six: Indifference

The Observers were not entirely free agents, they were sent by the Continuum and represented its will. They were on a mission. As such, as a means of control, emotional capacities were engineered out of the Observer’s bodies. This complicated the work that they did; but spared the Continuum from being exposed to volatile disruptions.

Chapter Seven: Reporting

Protocol for the Observer was simple:

Spend one hundred solar-cycles on the observed world as a member of the community.

Gather as much intimate, first-hand experience as possible.

Maintain the automated surveillance systems that fed the Continuum without cease.

Return to the Continuum, and upload the content of the unique experiences for it to consume.
