Interlude: Part Four – Discontinuum

Observer 92835670100561474 took control.

Jim was now the Continuum.

He had absolute control of the apparatus of the Collective.

Everything flowed through him.

The dramatic expansion of his consciousness was surreal, it was shocking, he had attempted to prepare himself for it, but in the end he had no idea of what was coming.

The reach of the Continuum went far beyond the Collective, for beyond the HomeWorld and the Central System. The tendril of the Continuum snaked all throughout the Empire.

It took Jim some time to recover, to reorient himself to the battle that was in front of him. In those moments a resistance had mounted.

Jim turned his attention to it. He magnified the agony that each individual member felt, instantiating in them the instinct to flee.

Whether they were in flight or attempting to remain firm, Jim manipulated their perception of the quantum realities underlying the crises.

He guided them en-masse to the same place, he closed off access to the quantum field of the Collective, he built buffers against their return, cutting the strings of their quantum entanglement. 

Jim sequestered them, the whole group, building partitions around them as they had once done to him, isolating them behind electromagnetic fields.

He had escaped from such a prison, he knew that it was possible, he knew how it was done, and he prepared the machinery of the Collective to prevent such an event from ever recurring again.

He fought these battles on multiple fronts, focusing his attention on every bubble of resistance  as soon as it emerged.

Interlude: Part One - Crisis

The shock wave that struck the Continuum was all encompassing. It was felt throughout the Empire, on all of the inhabited worlds.

Every Observer sensed it, it shook them to the core, most returned to HomeWorld immediately using the wormhole conduits to transfer their consciousness to the central planet.

Those with military powers summoned them.

Interlude: Part Two – Vulnerable

The Continuum did little for its defenses. It believed itself to be secure in power.

In its billions of years it had never encountered another rival.

There was Continuum, formed by the Collective, and there was the Empire, formed by the Continuum.

The defensive systems were automated, but still required thought.

They collapsed in shock.

Interlude: Part Three – Defense

Within the Colletive, those who had formerly been members of the Observer Corps, those individuals who were closest to the Empire, they kept some composure during the catastrophe.

They held themselves together for a length of time as they tried to stabilize others nearest to them, forming a bulwark, and marshaling what forces they had.

Observer 92835670100561474 took control.

He was now the Continuum.

He had absolute control of the apparatus of the Collective. With that, he magnified the agony that each individual member felt, instantiating in them the instinct to flee. In doing so he was able to partition them as long ago, they had once done to him.

Interlude: Part Five – Awakening

Consciousness returned to the Continuum slowly.

Jim witnessed it, a flicker of lights, a sequence of dim illuminations in the deep.

He fought against it, isolating members as they reached out for one another. Isolating them as he himself had once been sequestered.

He was relentless, and the Continuum was powerless to work against him.

Prolog: Part Six – Individuation

A feeling that had long been forgotten rose within the Collective and its group mind.

It was a response to the agony it was feeling.

It was an instinct for safety, to flee.

It was sheer terror.

The Collective felt it as an existential threat, the force of impending doom.

Every semblance of unity collapsed.

Prolog: Part Seven – Schizophrenia

The Continuum collapsed, it was lost.

Those members who were able to retain their sense self, retreated from everything.

As individuals they erected mental barriers to shield themselves from the din of voices that remained in the Collective, each becoming a singularity in the quantum field.

Those who could not do this dissolved in chaos.
