Chapter One: The Trillion

The Collective suffered from systemic malaise, each member afflicted by a deep seeded narcissism forming the core of their identity.

The Collective was comprised of a trillion persons, each a distinct identity, each ruling their personal-private domain. They were despots, every one driven to extremes of depravity by their long exposure to time, and boredom.

Chapter Two: The Majority

Most of the members of the Collective thought nothing of their role as consumers of pain and suffering. They were enthralled by the vicarious experience of the living.

For billions of years they had subsisted on this diet, like hungry spirits, they haunted the worlds of time and space, on the quest for meaning, understanding.

Chapter Three: The Sleepers

They were a tiny majority of the Collective but their numbers were great. There were millions of them, the sleepers, members who had become dissatisfied with being and had subsequently disconnected from the group.

They entered the great sleep, but they did not disappear, they remained a vital part of the sub-conscious of the Continuum.

Chapter Four: The Sequestered

Some of the membership sought death more than sleep, they wanted their light to be extinguished, they wanted to be gone for good, but there was no death.

They opted for sequestration, a full separation of themselves from the Continuum. It was considered to be a deeper sleep than sleep, it was the outer darkness.

Chapter Five: The Agitators

There were contentious elements within the Collective, members the Continuum could not control. They were maladaptive and misanthropic.

They were vocal.

They transferred their sense of entitlement, derived from the absolute authority they had in their private worlds, to their voice in the Collective. They wanted more than it had to offer, they wanted life.

Chapter Six: The Enemy

The Continuum controlled everything, it did so as the supposed representative of the Collective will. As such the Continuum was universally loathed by all of those members of the Collective with revolutionary tendencies.

To them the Continuum was the enemy, it represented a kind of tyranny, it was the demi-urge, a bitter god, the Devil.

Chapter Seven: The Death Seekers

Among the rebellious Observers there was a subset of revolutionaries whose only intention was to advance the cause of death. They were intent on the destruction of the Collective and it’s Continuum, of the Empire and its machinations. There were not many of them, in relations to the whole, but they numbered in the thousands.
