Chapter Six: Indifference
The Observers were not free agents. They were on a mission. They served their brothers and sisters in the Collective.
What was most important to the Collective was the flow of existential/experiential data through which they vicariously constructed the worlds they dwelt in, their individuated bubbles within the quantum field.
The Observers were sent out into the galaxy by the Continuum and represented its will. They were on a mission.
Even though the Continuum was itself an amalgamation of the Collective, unbeknownst to the Collective, the Continuum was a being with a will of its own.
It believed that it was itself, the divine concrescence of all consciousness. The Continuum sought to gather every shred of it into itself.
Like a hungry god, it desired to consume everything.
As such, the Observers were sent into the galactic Empire, sent on missions to find every last trace of the colonies and outposts that the children of the Ancients established in the ages before the Continuum, to either destroy them, or bring them in.
The Observers lived on the observed world’s and represented a means of control. Most of the Observers carried out their mission following strict guidelines. They did this in exchange for the freedom to dwell in an embodied state, to make their work easier, emotional capacities were engineered out of their bodies. Strong emotions complicated the work that they did; and spared the Collective from being conditioned empathetically by being exposed to volatile and disruptive feelings.
The bodies of the Observers were engineered to be indifferent, to be obedient, and to obey the Continuum.
