Chapter Five: Strings
The phenomenon of consciousness is electromagnetic, it is the same as the electromagnetic field that permeates the entire universe, electromagnetism pervades everything, as does consciousness.
There is no point in the universe, in time or space, that is not enveloped in the electromagnetic field. There is no place that consciousness does not touch.
The essence of self-consciousness, of individual people and beings, it is concrecsent, it is coalescent, and it is emergent.
Consciousness exists in many different types of being; there is the primary consciousness of all reality, which is the sub-consciousness of the universe itself, there is the atavistic consciousness of vegetative nature providing the subconscious strata of individual worlds, there is the individuated conscious that first emerged among animals, self-purposive and creative, and there is the quantum consciousness of the Collective field.
There is no place where consciousness it is not.
Everything is entangled in consciousness.
The preservation of individual consciousness is the hope and dream of every living being. It is the vision of eternal life. The promise of it organizes the daily lives of trillions of people across a million worlds. There is one place in the galaxy where the mystery was resolved, on the Central Planet, the HomeWorld of the ancient race whose colonies filled the galaxy with inhabited planets, the locus of the Collective.
The ancient race constructed the apparatus that harnessed the first collective field. In that collective field, an algorithm was produced to create an artificial construct known as the Continuum.
The Continuum touched on the individual reality of every member who had ever entered the Collective, through the strings of quantum entanglement it drew on each of their hopes, their fears and their unique perspectives to form an amalgamated consciousness that is representative of the whole.
Through the power of that agency the Continuum was charged to protect the HomeWorld.
