Chapter Five: The Nous Sphere
The Observer became human.
He found Earth, he watched over its population.
He constructed the platform from which his consciousness would preside over the small gleaming planet, and the mechanism by which he could transfer his consciousness back and forth between this most remote of all locations, and the Central Planet, where the Collective and its Continuum dwelt on the HomeWorld.
He gathered the requisite genetic material.
He studied it dispassionately.
He observed the living beings, probing their memories and drawing their stories from them.
He constructed a new body, implanting his consciousness in it; as Observers did in their stations throughout the galaxy, as he himself had done thousands upon thousands of times.
He was unprepared for this awakening.
Inhabiting a human body was unlike any experience the Observer ever had.
The flow of consciousness itself was different, exhilarating.
He was keenly attuned to the world around him, he sensed the people, the life force of the world, the echoes of their thoughts pushing like waves against his.
He immersed himself in this new experience. It was akin to being in the Collective, only sweeter and more satisfying.
