Chapter One: The Ancient Life

The ancient life was not easy.

The ancient people struggled just as their children did now, throughout the empire.

There was conflict and war.

There was strife and hunger, there was thirst and there was death.

Until the advent of the Collective death swallowed everything, the Collective promised to end the concerns of the living.

Chapter Two: The Promise of the Collective

The Collective was promoted as a means of freeing people from the vicissitudes of life, and from the drudgeries of living, presented immortality.

It meant release from the economies of scarcity, accompanied by ubiquitous war, strife, and violence.

The Collective was the translation of the whole self into a realm of electromagnetism and quantum currents.

Chapter Three: The Lie

Entering the Continuum freed no-one.

It perpetuated the banal, and magnified the mundane, carrying the Collective into depravity.

The material concerns of each individual member passed away, but the ingrained patterns of thought formed by the needs of the body, those remained.

Individuals, and thus the Collective, still spent their time seeking pleasure and avoiding pain.

Chapter Four: Suffering

Every member of the Collective was an island…a world unto themselves.

They connected to one another through Continuum, which shared in the collective experience of each individual.

The more intense the experiences the more they shared.

Most members of the collective were caught up in the endless drama unfolding among the worlds of the Empire.

Chapter Five: Will

The translation of consciousness from an organic body to the quantum and electromagnetic fields of the Collective was not easy.

Many who attempted this underwent a negation of self from which they never recovered.

It was noted that only the strongest personalities survived the translation process.

What happened to those who did make it was a mystery.

Chapter Six: Desire

Desire is the root of self, of joy, and of suffering.

Before fear, there is desire, the greatest determiner of who we are.

Desires define us, shape us into the persons we become.

Desires drive us; it controls us.

Every person reaches a point where they can be free from it, relinquishing desire is freedom.

Chapter Seven: Justice

The Continuum fostered a systemic and visceral depravity deep within itself.

Only a tiny minority among the Collective felt a desire for justice in relation to the experiences they witnessed in the Empire.

A larger part of the Collective paid no attention at all to what was happening in the worlds occupied by their progeny.
