Chapter Seven: The Organic Collective
It was the strength and frequency of Earth’s magnetosphere that created the conditions for the collective consciousness.
This cynergenic field was a profound discovery it was a natural manifestation of the artificial structure his people had created billions of years ago, and millions of light years away.
In all of his travels he had never encountered anything remotely like it.
It embraced every human being on the planet, connecting them to one another, mind to mind.
It did much more, and the people were ignorant of it.
They felt the connection, but they did not have the tools to measure and understand it, not yet.
The magnetic field of Earth, not only connected each person to every other, but it recorded the activities of their consciousness.
Every human being left an indelible imprint in the field they occupied, the imprint remained active, even after death, where each person became manifested as a spiritual being, as ghosts walking the earth beside their progeny.
This was an organic form of the Collective, and somewhere less distinct, there was a rudimentary amalgamation of the Continuum as well. A collective unconscious, that moved people, influenced their choices, motivated them to act as one.
The discovery startled the Observer, he could not reveal it to the Collective. He knew that the Continuum would come to destroy this world, perceiving it as a threat.
He had to protect it, this gave him a purpose beyond his purpose.
