Chapter Seven: Ego
From the great sleep, the deep-sleep in the great-deep-dark, from the place of sequestration, from the undulating ocean of the Collective’s pre-consciousness he awoke.
He was recognized.
In the first moment of his re-emergence the Collective saw him as a lost brother, reborn and miraculously returned.
He became an object of fascination.
Every single member of the collective wanted to touch his thoughts, and sense for themselves something of what he had experienced in the great sleep.
When they looked they saw nothing but the darkness and the unfathomable ocean of time.
His re-emergence was unique.
For a period of time the Collective was in awe of him.
They studied him.
When he exposed his consciousness to them individually, and to the collective consciousness of the Continuum separately, something happened. When they touched him, and he touched them, the link that he established was indelible.
He did not have to attempt to do it, the act of making his connection to them was not something that happened by artifice, or contrivance.
It took no effort at all, and because of that it went unnoticed.
He was himself, and his selfhood was transcendent.
