Chapter One: Journey
A wormhole is not a tunnel in space/time, linking one place to another. That was however, the common conceptualization of it.
A wormhole is a shortcut through subspace, not a passageway at all. It is a transposition.
It is trillions of atoms turning on point the point of pin.
What makes a journey through a wormhole possible is quantum entanglement, enmeshment.
Things, and objects cannot pass through a wormhole, but electrons, and electromagnetic fields can, consciousness can
A passage through a wormhole is to space travel, the solution that Alexander provided for the Gordian knot.
It is instantaneous, and direct.
Vast amounts of data can pass through a wormhole, faster than light, the upper limits were not known. The only limitation to such data transfers were the limitations housed in the physical nodes that sent and received the signals.
The science and technology of the Continuum had developed the machinery to transmit tens of billions of signals from millions of worlds, simultaneously. Every detail of the lives of person they followed, on every planet in the Galactic Empire was sent in an ongoing stream, received and processed on the Central Planet for consumption by the Collective.
Not all of the data was of interest to the members of the Collective, but all of it was stored in the vast subconscious of the artificial construct the Collective had constructed, the Continuum.
The lives of every citizen the most intimate details of their joy and pain, were grist for the mill.
