Chapter One: Fear

Jim was an intractable critic, perpetually discontent, it was natural to his character.

However, his concerns regarding the Continuum were not rooted in his basic disposition as a malcontent. They were based in his abiding interest for ethics and morals.

He was frightened by the things he witnessed, the Collective was a society of monsters.

Chapter Two: Anger

Jim was angry.

The core of his being was filled with a sharp bitterness over the way the Collective had squandered their existence.

They were a gaggle of voyeurs, feeding their obscene habits like the worst of gluttons, without reflection. They were addicts and he blamed the Continuum for pushing the drug, keeping them sedated.

Chapter Three: Resentment

He was proud.

He had been a member of the team that had constructed the original field of collective consciousness, or so he believed. He entered it himself, together with his family, toward the end of his life.

It did not bring joy.

He resented the role of the Continuum, and its manipulation of it.

Chapter Four: Idealism

Jim seemed to be a repository of the ideals the Ancient People had abandoned as they joined the Collective and abdicated their responsibilities for self-governance to the Continuum.

He was fiercely independent and strident in the pursuit of justice. He saw this as a matter of personal conviction, a purpose that he had to fulfill.

Chapter Five: Purpose


His objection to the Continuum went beyond indignation, his resolve to destroy it filled him with purpose, a slow burning-smoldering drive to undo the affliction of the Collective.

He was patient.

He knew his plan would have to have two components, to set the Empire free, and then to undo the influence of the Collective.

Chapter Six: Plan

Jim imagined a way he could slip something into the systems of the Collective, a virus, slip it past the security features of the Continuum when both it and the Collective were exposed and at their most vulnerable.

They had to want to receive what he had to offer. They had to hunger for it.

Chapter Seven: Conspiracy I

He planned a conspiracy and formed a cabal.

He replicated himself over and over again. His fellow conspirator were each a version of himself. Identical to himself, sharing the same freedoms, but each of them subordinating themselves to the cause they shared.

They were connected through the cynergenic field, and they were of one mind.

Chapter One: Soil

Rebellions does not spontaneously emerge.

People do not rise up against their governments and rulers for no reason. They will not risk life and freedom on a lark. The soil must be prepared. Outrage must be fomented, they must be conditioned to see something in the rebellion that is worth the cost of their lives.

Chapter Two: Seed

The seeds of rebellion are ideas, that Jim planted in the minds and nurtured in the hearts of those experiencing injustice, he did not foster systems of injustice for pleasure.

The motive was utilitarian.

To flourish, the people required the expectation of justice, to grow in strength the people required the experience of its opposite.

Chapter Three: Water

The experience of injustice nourished the rebellious spirit like water soaking the roots of a great tree, feeding it until it become a tower.

Too much water and the organism will die, just enough and it will thrive, it will multiply until it becomes like a mighty forest, a wall to enemies, protecting those within.

Chapter Four: Light

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Exposing injustice, naming it, is a sacred obligation.

Those engaged in this mission carried the light of truth for the sake of their brothers and sisters, they suffered.

Rebel was taught that they should never lie, to be moderate at all times and let the light in slowly.

Chapter Five: Growth

A rebellion moves outward from its center in waves, moving in concentric rings that grow larger and larger until they crash against the keepers of power like water swallowing the shoreline.

Energy must pour into the center without surcease, in order to ensure that the power of the revolution continues.

A rebellion requires constant renewal.

Chapter Six: Harvest

A revolution is like a harvest, and when the harvest comes, those who have sewn injustice reap the same. This is the natural cycle of every civilization, and though the Collective had been spared this cycle for billions of years, Jim was determined to ensure that its time had come.

The revolution was at hand.

Chapter Seven: Fire

When the fruit of the field is ripe, bring it in, harvest it and light the fields on fire.

This is the nature of rebellion.

The revolution ensues and the hands of justice turn the soil over, burying the old ways of corruption and dredging the earth.

This is the constancy of change and renewal.

Chapter One: Archetype

To foment revolution is to cultivate a thing, to do it successfully you must play on narrative with ritual, symbol and myth.

Revolution requires people to see themselves as heroic archetypes, no matter how insignificant their role in the revolution is, they must see it as a quest and themselves as the agents of change.

Chapter Two: Symbol

A rebellion needs both a hero and villain, an object of hope and an object of wrath.

The symbols of rebellion are dualistic, binary configurations with a zero-sum resolution. 

The motivating force is for justice, triumph of righteousness, the elimination of despotism and the eradication of tyranny.

There could be no compromise, victory is absolute.

Chapter Three: Narrative

Rebellion does not spread by the experience of injustice, whether from the direct experience of the victim or from the experiences of witnesses. Rebellion spreads by the narrative that is related, the stories we tell of those experiences.

Narrative must be rooted in truth, but must be told with flourish, generating empathy among the listeners.

Chapter Four: Ritual

Rituals shaped the entire context of a person’s life. Both the patriot and the rebel shared the same songs, the same history, they shared the same stories, stories which pointed them to different ends.

Heroes were interchangeable with villains, and with the proper ritual any crime could be forgiven and any character could be redeemed.

Chapter Five: Myth

To be willing to sacrifice themselves for causes that were merely exercises in futility, the rebels had to be able to see their revolutionary movements in a mythic context.

They had to see themselves, their lives and deaths as part of a greater narrative, a thing beyond themselves that they valued more than their lives.

Chapter Six: Quest

To motivate the people they had to be convinced that they are seeking a resolution to the injustices they face, a resolution that they will never experience for themselves. They have to believe they will find the object of their hope beyond themselves.

 The quest will never end, they hve to be satisfied with this.

Chapter Seven: Revolution

Every revolution has a predictable outcome, if the revolutionaries succeeded the survivors moved quickly to consolidate their power, setting themselves up as the new overlords and quashing dissent.

They became the despots and the tyranny continues.

Sometimes this happens within a single generation, other times it takes two or three, but the transformation is inevitable.

Chapter One: The Discontent

Throughout the million worlds of the Empire, with its trillions of people, a tiny fraction enjoyed lives of peace and relative security, the majority were discontent. They had ambitions, most of which were simply to live out their lives and raise their families, see them advance and experience some joy.

Happiness is what they desired.

Chapter Two: The Dispossessed

Most of the people living in the Empire had nothing, they accumulated no wealth, received no inheritance, passed nothing on to their children.

Most of the people had no rights as citizens, they were outcasts, untouchable, wholly owned by the Empire.

Their lives and deaths were meaningless; unsung, unremembered and unknown.

They were the majority.

Chapter Three: The Hidden

The common man and woman lived secretive lives, they did not share their resentment with anyone, they hid their pain and their fears, hiding their true feeling even from those closest to them.

The oppression of fear covered them like a moist heat, robbing them of the air they breathed, and they dared not complain.

Chapter Four: Enemies

Those who harbored rebellion in the hearts had to be conditioned to see every person or group as an enemy. Even members of their own cabal had to be seen as potential threats.

There was no middle ground.

Revolution is a zero-sum game. Everyone had a breaking point at which they turned against their own.

Chapter Five: Murder

In the mind of the revolutionary killing was not murder, not even assassination was murder. It was always self-defense.

In the heart of the revolutionary even the innocent could be killed, justified as an attack on the systems of oppression, There were no innocents, everyone was complicit.

You were either with them or against them.

Chapter Six: Revenge

Violence generates its own cycle of violent reprisal.

Revolution is a turning of the wheel, oppression generates aggression. Revenge is sought simply for the principle of it, not to redress the wrong that prompted the response, but merely to satisfy a need, like hunger. It leaves the person unfulfilled, and it invites a similar reprisal.

Chapter Seven: Conflict

Revolution is conflict, it is a conflict with end.

The rebel must be hungry for it, must thrive in it, live with the desire burning inside of them, burning with a steady-quiet heat, until the moment comes when they explode into action.

The revolutionary cannot know that the conflict never ends, their sacrifice must matter.

Chapter One: Agitators

The Continuum sought to manage the revolutionaries, to control their fire. It knew them, each and every one of them, from its contact with their consciousness when they returned to the HomeWorld for examination.

In that process dangerous and agitating influences were rooted out, or intensified if it suited the strategic desires of the Collective.

Chapter Two: Selectees

From among the disquieted members of the Collective the Continuum selected individuals for missionary work. Most of them were eager for the opportunity to live in the flesh again.

They wanted change and the stimulation of sensory organs.

Many of them wanted to exercise their fantasies in a visceral way, where the stakes were real.

Chapter Three: Malcontents

Removing the malcontent from the Collective allowed the Continuum greater controls. It was like a suspension of membership, amounting to a reprieve for the Continuum, which experienced Jim’s influence in a way that outstripped the significance of a singular node of being. It helped to keep the Collective passive.

It was a means of control.

The Continuum groomed had them for these roles over millennia.

The Continuum wanted despots in the Empire, people whose desires were known full-well to the Collective, who would behave in predictable ways, entertainers.

Chapter Five: Hedonism

They were the thrill seekers, they were the pleasure principals, they had always been and they would remain the key to controlling people, both to instigate and to undermine rebellion.

They encouraged risk taking and self-aggrandizement, personal glory, hedonism as a reward, and they fostered addiction.

Such stimulants worked, until the supply was cut off.

The rebellious had to believe in their ideals, they had to believe in them absolutely. A rebel had to subjugate their desires in favor of their ideals, in favor of their need to realize their fulfillment.

Nothing could be more important to the rebellious, and because of this, nothing was easier to manipulate than idealism.

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.

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

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.

There were not many of them, in relations to the whole, but they numbered in the thousands.

They caused trouble, their presence created ripples in the waves of sentiment that washed through the Collective.

They sought to weaken the Collective and to poison the Continuum.

Only those with the ability to destroy a thing, control that thing.

The revolutionary must be committed.

They learned to communicate in subtle signals, simple signs which they believed would evade the detection of the Empire.

They pushed messages slowly, over time, establishing lines of communication that joined them together, like thin cables stretching between worlds.

Thin Cabals made of loose associations and sympathizers, alliances tightened like the individual strands of fiber woven together to form a length of rope.

Cabals became columns capable of supporting concerted action, providing greater security.

Revolutionary movements required the support of such columns, they were the pillars that held up the dome of their ideals.

A revolution could not survive without sacrifice, the rebel Observers understood this, they sacrificed each other with great regularity, on occasion they would even sacrifice themselves.

Even a member of the Collective could arrive at a place where they would serve a cause greater than their self-interest. These were rare moments, and every one mattered.
