Chapter Four: Shock
The trillion individual persons, those who were the members of the Collective, and comprised the Continuum, they became silent all at once.
Each and every one of them felt the psychic pain of Earth. It was pain like they had not felt since the time they themselves were embodied beings, a kind of pain that they could barely remember, and they had no defense against it.
The shock waves disoriented them. It shattered them. They were not prepared for the onrush of humanity. They could not stand against it.
Even as the collective was reeling, trying to recover from the ssault. Kathy guided the flow on consciousness from Earth in ways that were calming, comforting, soothing.
Kathy was able to settle the collected humanity she carried with her, settle them into a peaceful transition, in no time, in her much practiced ability to dwell below the quantum field.
She realized that Jim had prepared her in many ways just for this moment, she knew intuitively how to guide the masses into their place, allowing them to populate the Collective consciousness of the Central Planet.
In that moment, the great Collective consciousness, the spirits of the Ancient Race, became still for the first time ever. It could not relate to what was happening. It was not adaptable.
Jim knew that there was a chance the Collective could rebound, Continuum might draw humanity unto itself and adjust to the invasion, but that chance passed and was gone.
The emptiness the Collective faced was like a vacuum, it swallowed the whole.
There was no resistance.
