Chapter Six: Quest
The commitment to revolution had to be seeded in the human consciousness, the quest germinating in perpetuity.
To motivate the people they had to be convinced that they were seeking a resolution to the injustices they faced, a resolution that they might never experience for themselves, but which would fulfill them simply for pursuing it.
It was not the destination that mattered it was the journey, it was not the getting there it was the going.
The rebels and the revolutionaries, had to believe they would find the object of their hope beyond themselves. In this regard, the programming of the human consciousness for revolutionary activity was completely in synch with the Imperial religion.
Jim was able to hide his agenda within this framework and so it went unnoticed by the Observers who had been assigned to watch over his work, and so it escaped the Continuum as well.
For the revolutionary, the quest must never end, the virtuous life consisted of the pursuit of justice, not its realization. They had to be satisfied with this.
Jim placed all of these motifs in the collective mythology, he stirred them up continuously. When he arrived at the end game of the breeding program, the vessel he was searching for had to be conditioned by these paradigms, the vessel could not question them.
He required the sacrifice of the vessel to be voluntary, the vessel had to willingly endure the psychic trauma of billions of people crying out in fear and pain and confusion, dying all at once.
They vessel had to be able to channel that trauma, through Jim, and drive it like a stake through the heart of the Continuum.
