Emergence 3.0 - Section Five, 92835670100561474; Part Thirty-four, Selected; Chapter Two, Commission


Emergence 3.0
A Novel – In One Page Per Day
Day 247, September 4th, 2018

Chapter Two: Commission

The Continuum did not want him. It wanted to be rid of him.

It did not want a relic like him lingering in its subconscious. It discerned a threat in him, it was suspicious.

It did not want his critical perspective influencing it through hidden judgements, and his unquantified ability to slip past the safeguards that Continuum employed to protect itself and the Collective.

At the same time, he did not want to be in the Collective. He wanted to be free.

He did not want to be submerged in the vile currents of thought and feeling belonging to the membership.

He felt that the more time he spent there, the greater the likelihood that he would lose his desire for justice.

He did not want to live in a fantasy world, a world of his own creation, regardless of the fact that in such a world he could dwell with seemingly real people, play any role, wielding godlike powers among them.

He had no interest in such fantasies.

He did not want to spend his time watching, living vicariously through the feeds the Continuum presented, following the real lives of real citizens in the empire, as if they were unfolding like the pages in a book, he wanted to be a part of those stories, and he knew the direction he wanted to take the narrative.

He did not want his experience shaped by the Continuum.

He and the Continuum saw the same resolution to their mutual problem, and when they settled on it, they enacted the protocols to make it happen without delay.

He was sent to the Observer Corps.

Chapter Three: Exile

The Observer Corps was comprised of malcontents, members of the Collective who desired neither the private worlds of the Continuum, nor the prospect of the great sleep.

They were sent into the galaxy to serve in posts that guided the Empire and its culture, in ways that satisfied the voyeuristic desires of the Central Planet.

The Ancient spacefaring people founded thousands of communities among the stars.

Chapter Six: The Lost

In his quest to track down the paths of the Ancient spacefarers he found many lines of their progeny on planets that had become nothing but graveyards.

They were people who had vanished from the knowledge of the Collective.

They left records of their passage, and clues to where their survivors might yet be found.

Chapter Seven: The Changed

He found them, he believed he found them all.
The farther he travelled away from the Central Planet, he discovered they had lost the memory of where they came from.

Their trials on strange worlds, their sojourn among the stars had altered them, mutated them.

Many were hardly recognizable as descendants of the Ancient people.
