Chapter One: Penalty

Ages passed before he was discovered entering the experiential fields of other members of the Collective, violating their privacy.

There were no laws against it.

There was no law.

This was a taboo no one thought could be crossed.

He was only caught because of the outrage he expressed at their depravity.

He was jailed.

Chapter Two: Release

The Continuum wanted to dissect him, study him, and ultimately erase him.

However, the Collective recognized his uniqueness, took responsibility for abandoning him after he had awoken.

They elected to free him.

The individual members of the Collective were able to override the judgement of the algorithm that represented in some way their combined will.

Chapter Three: Nothing

The entire Collective deliberated his fate for a period of ages.

It was a time of trial.

He was not allowed to speak.

He was isolated, sequestered, cut off.

There was silence, darkness, and emptiness all around him.

Nothing in his entire existence had prepared him for that.

It was an extreme form of torture.

Chapter Four: Peace

In time, he mastered himself.

He learned how to focus.

He waited.

In the isolation, he was given the time to contemplate, to examine his conscience, to come to terms with himself, and find a sense of purpose.

He formed a desire to tear apart the world as he had always known it.

He planned.

Chapter Five: Freedom

When he was untethered from the collective, freed from the pressure of its passions, released from the depths of existential fear that lurked and slumbered within it, he found himself.

In that negative space, all of the plans and schemes he had concocted crystallized.

He would either advance his agenda, or he would be extinguished.

Chapter Six: Purpose

In isolation he found a sense of purpose, a desire to remember everything, to understand.

He wanted to experience real-life, to be flesh and blood again.

He needed to connect with the visceral, the palpable, and the organic.

He wanted to remember everything that his people once were, and he wanted to destroy the Continuum.

Chapter Seven: Destruction

It was only by abandoning the Collective that he came to himself.

He stopped reaching out to his brothers and sisters.

He divested himself of his beliefs in its greater purpose, the promises that were promulgated by Continuum.

He accepted his own death, as he had learned to when he emerged from the great sleep.
