Chapter One: Paralysis

In time he was forgotten, he drifted, unseen by the collective.

He disentangled himself emotionally, creating an epistemic, nearly ontological distance between himself and the Continuum.

He was removed from the daily consumption of vicarious experiences, the orgies of sexuality, of suffering, and violence.

He had no appetite for them, preferring instead to analyze himself.

Chapter Two: Erosion

His bond to the Collective faded.

He shared neither their values, nor their desires.

He was not moved by their fears, or their passions.

He experienced a new mode of cognition.

It was new life.

He was awake to himself, but dead to the Continuum.

He was detached, and he slipped away from their awareness.

Chapter Three: Crucible

Returning to consciousness, emerging from the great sleep, was like passing through the eye of a needle.

No person had ever reassembled their identity in the billions of years that continuum had been in existence. In doing so, his essence changed.

He became a catalyst among those near him, fomenting change in them as well.

Chapter Four: Hearing

While he was submerged in the great sleep, deep in the subconscious of the Collective, he sensed the currents of thought pulsing through it, and deeper than that he also sensed the presence of all of the others who had entered the great sleep.

Those pulsing rhythms were what woke him, bringing him to awareness.

Chapter Five: Seeing

He learned to do things that were designed to be impossible, never before considered.

He developed the ability to penetrate the experiential fields of individual members in the Collective.

It was startling at first, but it went unnoticed as he hovered in the roots of their subconscious, listening to their thoughts, and feeling their feelings.

Chapter Six: Feeling

It was intended that no-one ever return from the great sleep.

The promise of the Collective was that each member be preserved forever.

In reality, Continuum sought to erase everyone who choose to fade away, to not participate.

When he woke, he was an anomaly, more than one, entangled in every part of the whole.

Chapter Seven: Being

He was no longer the person he was when he entered the great sleep, he knew that.

At his core, his identity was the same as the man whose entered the Collective as an organic being.

Now the essence of the Collective was enmeshed in him, and he was connected to every part of it.
