Chapter Seven: Goodbye

There was a satellite, cloaked, and orbiting far above the earth. It was the actual house of Jim’s consciousness. This satellite was the principle platform for Jim’s mission on Earth, it was one of thousands of satellites, and drones, hidden from the eyes of human beings.

Some were fixed in stationary orbits, other moved about, semi-autonomously.

In that place, Jim the Observer, activated a switch, sending a signal to his host body, and with that, an embolism in his doppelganger burst inside its brain, ending its life in a massive stroke.

Jim’s body had been flying on a plane from his Midwestern home, to New York city. The destination was only important for the route and the timing Jim had planned for his death. Those sitting next to him did not notice the moment of his demise. It was only as the plane made ready for its descent that the airline attendants noticed something wrong with him, noticed the thin line of blood dripping from his nostril, noticed that he was not breathing.

They did what they could for him, but they quickly realized that there was nothing to be done.

They called ahead for a doctor, indicating that they were dealing with a medical emergency, but in reality, they all knew that they were dealing with a corpse.

Jim observed those final moments, the last seconds of the body that housed him during his most significant incarnation, the life that would define his entire existence, expose his greatest secrets, give him the victory he had long sought over the HomeWorld, and the Continuum

When he was satisfied that he was mentally prepared for the challenges that awaited him. He toggled another device, opening a channel through space and time.

He paused for a moment to consider the steps he would take on the other side. He did something that was forbidden, leaving a copy of himself in the quantum memory of his base, and then he let his consciousness go, slipping into the stream of the infinite.

He passed through the wormhole.

He was home.

Chapter One: Funeral

Jim finished his coffee, gathered himself, and hurried from the café. He was afraid to miss his flight. The timing of his departure, and precisely where he was when it happened, those things were crucial.

He did not need much; his black suit, his watch, his tie. “I’m dead;” he mused, the “harbinger of doom.”

Chapter Two: Regrets

“I never should have seen her.” Jim thought.

He was being foolish when he asked her to see him. His emotions were running too high, and they might have alerted her to the plan.

Catching her by surprise was paramount.

Jim couldn’t help himself. It was all over; for everyone, and nothing could be done.

Chapter Three: Doom

What was about to occur would be a global catastrophe; affecting everything on earth, changing humanity irrevocably, killing hundreds of thousands in minutes, millions in days, and most of the rest in a few short years to come.

Very few human being were even aware of the danger. No one expected it to come now.

Chapter Four: Cycles I

Earth endured episodic calamities; storms, and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes, these were minor events compared to the power of the caldera volcano.

There were catastrophes that came from beyond the planet; collisions with comets and asteroids, given time, technology, and planning these could be avoided, but nothing could stop the power growing within the Earth.

Chapter Five: Cycles 2

Seventy thousand years passed since the last caldera blew; only a handful few human beings survived it. It had been six-hundred thousand years since this caldera last erupted, nearly wiping out all life on Earth. The coming event would be greater still. Humanity would survive, even without intervention, but the psychic trauma would be extreme.

Chapter Six: Lament

If civilization, and technology on Earth had been given the time to develop a little bit further, human beings would have been able to harness the geological power of the caldera. In another century, or sooner they would have had it, but the Continuum would not allow for an intervention, and so the disaster ensued.
