Chapter One: Observing

Jim allowed his replicas to oversee the work of organizing the his web of spies and educators, and one special replica to carry his report back to the Collective each cycle.

Chapter Two: Identifying

Jim built systems into the social fabric, systems of reporting that allowed him to identify those who carried the genetic sequences he was looking for, structures to build upon.

A trait in the Iris, the earlobe, the shape of a thumb, the texture of hair, physical traits that marked them as distinct.

Cognitive testing followed.

Chapter Three: Testing

He tested the population of his subjects in hospitals and asylums, in monasteries and convents, in university laboratories and in prisons.

He tested candidates in the military and he bred them, he experimented on them.

Slowly, the genetic line came into focus, he built the desired properties into the genetic simulacrum of his own body.

Chapter Five: Validating

When Jim discovered the family he surmised would produce the offspring he had been looking for, he inserted himself into their life as a counselor.

He manipulated them though his agents, preparing them like an artist might prepare a canvas, establishing the material conditions that would bring about the end game he had been seeking.

Chapter Six: Counseling

He had long since validated his hypothesis concerning Earth’s cynergenic field.

Through his programs he validated his theory on how that field could be accessed.

Through the centuries, tens of thousands of his subjects fell into madness. He was seeking balance.

He was interested in actively controlling it, not merely the passive experience of it.
