Chapter Six: Purpose
In isolation he found a sense of purpose, the desire to remember everything, to understand everything, all of the antecedents that brought him and his people, and their progeny to this place.
He began to pull the strings together, to track down every thread, to untangle the tiniest strands, to spin and weave them into a tapestry.
He reached the limits of what he could learn through his memories, through his entanglement with the Collective.
He needed to experience real-life again, to be flesh and blood again; to see and hear, to taste and touch.
He needed to connect with the visceral, the palpable, and the organic.
He wanted to breathe, to feel his heart beating, the pulse of blood flowing through him
He wanted to remember everything that his people once were, and he wanted to destroy the Continuum.
There was work to be done.
There were mysteries remaining in the far reaches of the galaxy, undiscovered societies founded by the Children of the Ancients.
There were civilizations that were established long before the Collective and its Continuum came to be.
He wanted to commune with them.
