Chapter Two: The Web
Jim built a global network of interlocking cells.
Each web of spies served their own community first. They were tribalistic in the extreme, and conditioned to be xenophobic. This type of conditioning was what the Continuum prescribed.
Each and every independent cell held allegiances to the people of their own tribe first, but at the highest levels they underwent initiations that opened-up their broader purpose.
They were initiated into the sacred mysteries which gave them a glimpse of the galaxy, of the Empire and the great Collective Consciousness and the Continuum, the demi-urge at its heart.
In the shadows Jim cultivated a secret cabal, hostile to the Continuum, people who were conditioned to believe that their sacred mission was to prepare the world for the inevitable encroachment of the Empire.
Unity would be required of the people of Earth if they were to survive an encounter with the Empire, and to that end they set aside their tribalism, shared information and cooperated together.
There was nothing more important than this, the fate of humanity depended on it.
Jim was extremely selective about who he chose to promote into these ranks. He deliberately chose men and women who had a weak connection to the cynergenic field.
Into their genetic profile he engineered capacities for psychic resistance.
He never perfected these, but his most trusted spies were unreadable to ordinary psychics.
They were indoctrinated into the secret societies after careful consideration and vetting, every one was interconnected by their sense of duty and loyalty, to humanity itself, and to Jim.
They were absolutely trustworthy and their presence allowed Jim the freedom to roam about the world.
