Chapter Six: Spymaster
Jim became adept at all the tools of spy-craft, he employed them with expertise, drawing on the resources of the Collective to augment his intuition, applying everything he could to the situation on Earth, with what technologies were available to him in society, as well as the other technologies he possessed that he was able to keep hidden from the people.
The Continuum was short on resources for monitoring society without its vast array of remote sensors and communications devices. But Jim augmented those systems, developing analog variations of them for his use and access.
He established secret societies that monitored every aspect of human government, every religious institution, and the agents of the Continuum who came to earth to monitor him, he took great care to keep these hidden.
The confessionals became the primary model by which the people reported upward all the things he needed to know about the subtle shifts taking place in the collective experience of humanity
He took measures to protect himself, hiding his assets, constructing the technological and human vehicles to execute his will. Trusting in his team of dopplegangers to work tirelessly toward their common goal.
He knew from his spy network, some of the Observers who came to monitor his work were not dedicated to the Continuum in anyway.
Others were fanatically devoted.
None of them were supposed to be on Earth at all, according to the Observer’s protocol, but protocol never stopped the Continuum from doing as it pleased.
Nothing ever stopped Jim.
