Chapter Five: History 5th
The children of the Ancients seeded civilizations among the stars.
Life finds a way, and spreads into any space that is lit, warm, and wet.
Colonies were founded, flourished and grew, creating their own unique cultures, only to die, disappear, detached from their ancestral roots.
Some of these colonies were such that the children of the Ancients had no memory and no record of. And some of these colonies arrived at their final destination with no memory of where they had come from.
The Collective itself had lost the memory of the star the ancient people were born under, They accepted an alternate history, a mythology of perpetual being put in its place by the Continuum.
During those ages, at the center of everything, the Continuum emerged. It reached out to the colonies on those far-flung worlds, connecting them one to another.
It took millions of years for the galactic Empire to form.
The Continuum formed the Observer Corps in order to discharge its problem members, and through their agency it put eyes and ears into the world’s of the Empire that served it.
This became the most vital agency for the life of the Collective, and thus for the Continuum itself.
The reality of a living experience became available to the members of the Collective, it gave them focus, it entertained them, it filled them with purpose both on a macro scale, and on a micro scale. Some would follow the lives of individual people, others would follow the lives of dynasties and planetary systems, or alternate between them.
