Chapter Four: Peace
In time he mastered himself; he was able to focus.
He had no idea how long this took, time itself had become meaningless, and then he began to count. He carved out a place in his consciousness to keep track of time.
It did not matter that there was no actual referent for his time to append to.
All time is relative, insofar as it is merely a measure of the movement of objects in space.
There were no object in the nothingness he had been submerged in. There was only him, and the quantum field of his consciousness, and there it was.
He had himself.
In the isolation he was subjected to he was given the freedom to contemplate, to examine his conscience, to come to terms with himself, and to find a sense of purpose.
He formed a desire to tear apart the world as he had always known it.
He counted, he relived his memories, playing them against the field of un-being. Moment by moment against the metronome of his internal clock.
He relived his life, before and after the Collective.
He recalled every facet of every fantasy world he had ever touched.
