Epilog: Part Seven – Bliss
There are no words to describe the feeling of satisfaction, of joy, of wholeness, of completion that enjoined that moment of Kathy’s ascendancy.
She was seized, she fell into a state of rapture.
Kathy assumed the mantle of the Continuum.
It happened atavistically.
She became it.
She became more than it had ever been.
She stretched her consciousness into the mechana of HomeWorld and the Central System.
She slipped right past Jim, and his defenses just below his awareness, she took all of his knowledge from him and in the flicker of an immeasurable moment she rewrote every code.
She had no limits, she was unbound by time and space.
She would not be circumscribed by a single world, or a solar system, her essence flowed into the deepest dimension of consciousness, encompassing every world in the Galaxy.
She crossed the vast limits of the Empire, all of its colonies, she covered the remote regions of its spiral arms, she touched her little blue world, orbiting its tiny yellow star.
She felt the massive weight of sorrow and fear, of sadness and grief, and in response she issued a single sentiment, projecting it outward to every living being
Her wordless sentiment of love.
For Kathy this happened in no-time, she was one with the cynergenic field as she in fact had always been, but only now, in that moment singular moment was she able to understand and accept it.
She was able to reconcile the distinctiveness of herself as the persona she was born into, had originated as, a child of Earth; she reconciled that with the whole of creation that existed within her, as it existed in every other part.
In that moment everything stopped, there was no resistance not anywhere, not in the consciousness of those members of the Collective whose identities were still intact somewhere on the HomeWorld, and not among the few Observers who remained at their posts throughout the million worlds.
The Children of the Ancients, wherever they were, responded to her presence with resonate joy.
In the end Kathy allowed herself to fall into the sensation stirring within her, the sensation unlike any feeling she had ever had before.
It was pure bliss.
She and the world were one.
