Emergence 3.0 - Section One, Jim and Kathy; Part Seven, Catastrophe; Chapter Two, Channel

Chapter Two: Channel

Every-thing is one in the quantum field.

Time and space, our normal conception of them, they do not exist, there meaning and distinction are completely lost.

In the quantum field everything was entangled, like a ball of string, condensed into a single point of reference.

There was no distance between Earth and HomeWorld; between humanity and the Continuum, or the Collective, or the population of any other world.

The reality of individual experience, the reality of individuation, the reality of time as experienced by beings existing on a scale that is large enough to see it, these are true phenomena, even while at the same time being a type of illusion.  

Jim felt Earth’s psychic pain rushing through the wormhole connecting him to Kathy. He felt much more than the fear, shock, and panic, that he was expecting. He sensed the fullness of the human race coming through with her, the living and the dead, the present and the past, the entirety of Earth’s collective consciousness arriving with her.

The force of it was much greater than Jim was expecting, hoping for, wanting.

He was barely able to hang onto his identity in the onrush. He clung to himself like a life raft, like a man hanging over the edge of a cliff by his fingernails, and slipping.

He blacked out.

It was too much.

Even as the entire Collective went into shock, while the Continuum scrambled to make sense of what was happening, knowing that Jim, the Observer had returned to the HomeWorld as an assassin, Jim lost his grip on what was happening and his ability to control any of the aftermath.

He was victorious, and he had lost, both at the same time.

As his sense of what was transpiring around him was going dim. He perceived a familiar person near to him, searching for him, reaching out through the psychic maelstrom for something to cling to.

She was scared, but she was whole, she was confident, and she was ascending.

Chapter One: Unleashed

The explosion shook the world; everything shifted.

Kathy knew in an instant what it was, what it meant, the sound of the blast echoed back through her memory. She felt it from over a thousand miles away. She felt the fears of those dying, of those about to die, she felt them all around her.

Chapter Three: Volcano

When the super volcano in Yellowstone Park blew. Most people on earth had no idea of the threat, no idea that such a threat even existed, or what it had done in the past.

Now the disaster was here, and the world was dying, life on the earth was becoming just another layer of clay.

Chapter Four: Shock

The trillions of persons, individuals comprising the Collective became silent all at once; the consciousness of Continuum became still for the first time ever.

The emptiness swallowed the whole.

Each and every one of them felt the psychic pain, it disoriented them, it shattered them, and they had no defense against the onrush of humanity.

Chapter Five: Quiet

Jim was the first to recover from the trauma.

The Observer had prepared himself.

He was wracked by the pain flowing through the quantum string connecting the Collective to Kathy.

He was able to let it flow through him, he never lost hold of the center of himself. He was ready when the silence followed.

Chapter Six: Justification

The catastrophe could have been avoided. Natural disasters of this type could be mitigated, as similar problems are resolved on other worlds.

The Continuum craved the impending drama that would come in the aftermath. Now the Collective would feel it full-force.

Together, they would participate in the cataclysm, in a manner they had not foreseen.

Chapter Seven: Undone

With the Continuum in a state of paralysis, it was a simple thing for Jim to assert the force of his individual persona into the command matrix of HomeWorld, thereby dismantling the architecture supporting its defenses.
He took apart both the psychic protections of the collective consciousness, and the military programs of the Central Planet.
