Chapter Seven: Resolution
Jim understood the risks he was going to take. He was about to recreate the same type of risk that he had engineered on the HomeWorld, the duplication of his consciousness, as many times as was necessary for him to be able to carry his mission forward on the limited time scale that was available to him.
Jim determined to plum the limits of his discovery, if there were any limits to what he had found.
The difference between what he was doing here, on Earth, and what he had accomplished on the Central Planet were considerable. In both locations he needed multiple-independent nodes of action. On home world, each and every node was connected by its field of collective consciousness.
They were a society of one.
On Earth their connectivity through the cynergenic field was more tenuous, it operated on a different frequency. It was less immediate.
Though it was possible for each unit to act autonomously on HomeWorld, to break away from the plan, to sabotage it, he and the other members of his private cabal would have known immediately, and while this possibility existed, there was not even the slightest hint of defection.
On Earth he was faced with considerable unknowns.
He cloned himself, planting his dopplegangers in every population center around the world, each one connected to the prime version of himself through the cynergenic field, like on HomeWorld, only this field was weaker, there were gaps in it, places where individuals could hide, or disappear.
He did this in violation of the laws governing his post, if he had been discovered he would have been destroyed, and likely the entire planet, with all of its art and beauty.
Continuum would have destroyed the Earth with him.
