Chapter One: Genetic

Many things united the people of the Empire; language, cult, custom.

Fear and hope were among the most powerful forces establishing both mutuality and commonality throughout the worlds.

Nevertheless, the children of the Ancients evolved in different ways, on their disparate worlds, with different stars to look upon, different fates to contemplate.

Differences were primary.

Chapter Two: Class

Everyone dreamed of advancing to the next level, it was the constant preoccupation of the masses, to advance, either in this life or the next.

Complacency was abhorrent.

They loathed their own place, but when threatened their class united them.

They were connected by clan, village, planet, by class, and rank, by fear and loathing.

Chapter Three: Planetary

There were a million worlds in the galactic Empire. Planets strung like gems among the stars, each of them was the locus of identity for the ordinary citizen.

Every person was marked by the world they lived on, genetically aligned to its exigencies. Their worlds marked them in ways that were both obvious and hidden.

Chapter Four: Linguistic

The Imperial schools attempted to normalize linguistics.

It was a mission that never ended, something that they failed at from generation to generation.

Variation persisted, colloquial patterns bonded people to one another, an unconscious manifestation of shared experience.

Language patterns were buried in the ganglia of the central nervous system, they were a genetic endowment.

Chapter Five: Desire

People found one another through the things they desired most; bonding with one another through their joy, and pain.

Shared experience were the strongest ties, and because of this, people unconsciously sabotaged themselves, undercut their hopes for advancement, so as to remain in proximity to those they loved.

Through this medium, incredible tragedies would unfold.

Chapter Six: Fear

Fear makes the life and behaviors of the citizenry more predictable than any other factor.

 Not even death could overcome the power of fear.

Fear poisoned the body, shaping its consciousness in the electromagnetic field.

Fear was the most powerful emotion, stronger than hope, than desire, than hate.

Fear catalyzed all of the lesser emotions.

Chapter Seven: Love

Love is stronger than fear, stronger than any power.

The Imperial cult worked tirelessly to frustrate the reality of love among each of the million worlds that constituted the galactic civilization.

Love is a feeling, like fear, and joy, but love is more, it is a choice, it is a fundamental option.

Love is freedom.
