Chapter One: Sleep

There was darkness.

It was absolute.

It was like a calm, placid ocean beneath a heavy black shroud.

It was utterly silent, and yet there was a sense of shifting, a movement, a rhythm that faintly pulsed like a slow, forgotten heart.

Isolation was not a tomb, there was life here.

It was a prison.

Chapter Two: Awakening

He awoke in the dark place of a complex algorithm, where his consciousness had been sequestered.

It was absolutely dark, without sensory input.

He inhabited a quantum field.

He awoke in the wave like currents of all the others who had been sequestered, and all of those who entered the continuum, immediately falling into oblivion.

Chapter Three: The Collective

He could feel the Collective pressing in on him, surrounding, permeating his consciousness. Yet, his distinctiveness was intact.

He was connected to the whole, and fully individuated at the same time, it was a phenomenon that the Continuum had never reported.

His consciousness was a type of singularity, unique in the history of the Collective.

Chapter Four: Remembering

Upon awakening Jim remembered.

He recalled his life before he succumbed to the great sleep.

He remembered life before the Continuum.

He remembered everything he had ever been.

He felt a great sense of loneliness, of distance between himself and the Collective.

He came to see the Continuum a tragedy.

He began to make plans.

Chapter Five: Primordial-Self

Differentiation begins with the desire to continue.

This is true at the most basic level, with the simplest forms of organic life, just as it is true of the most advanced.

Self-conscious beings differentiate themselves as individuals apart from their tribes. They are not merely members of the collective.

I am I, is the way.

Chapter Six: Id

A drive was building in the depths of his consciousness, a drive to taste, and to see, to feel the touch of flesh, of wind, and heat, to hear music, which he barely remembered.

He wanted to smell the loamy scent of soil.

He wanted life, even with its pains, its ailments, and its inconveniences.

Chapter Seven: Ego

From great deep-sleep in the great deep-dark, sequestered in the undulating ocean of the Collective’s pre-consciousness he awoke.

He was recognized.

The Collective saw him as a lost brother, reborn.

He became an object of fascination.

His re-emergence was unique.

For a period of time the Collective was in awe of him.

They studied him.
