Chapter Four: Mutation

During their sojourn to Earth, the children of the Ancients determined what their physical needs would be before they arrived at their new home.

They had identified Earth as a suitable place to end their journey, even while they were still light years away.

They still possessed the scientific knowledge to carry out the task of altering their physiology to align themselves with the gravity and atmosphere of the distant planet.

They began to mutate their DNA, altering their genetic structure, allowing them to inhabit, and thrive on the wet-blue world.

Destination Earth, it was their last hope for a home and haven.

Over the course of generations they adapted to those new requirements, doing their best to anticipate what their bodies would now require, based on a climate and ecology that they could only model through computer algorithms.

It was a process of continual adjustment. Every time a new genetic sequence would be introduced into the body, they ran the risk of a virus springing up, one that was possibly lethal.

Many of the colonists were struck down in this process. It was an ongoing tragedy, and while they had prepared for it, it was painful nonetheless. It called for a continuous examination of conscience. It focused the crew on the existential dilemma. Some of them wanted to abandon their mission altogether, and simply direct their vessel into the nearest star, bringing an end to all of them, in one great conflagration.

The technologies they depended on, which were also the cause of their transformation and eventual triumph, they began to be shunned.

Chapter One: The Paintings

The people drew pictures in the soil with sticks, mixed colors and painted, projecting images of the future on cave walls.

They carved their hopes, and fears into stones, and the faces of cliffs, the past also.

They depicted things no one living had ever seen, the memory of which they carried in their genes.

Chapter Two: The Music

The music of the people, the drums they beat, the rhythms they made, they pushed the stories of each tribe, each family, deep into the memory of its members. It changed them on the genetic level, setting up successive generations to recall them, relive them, to transform those stories into a part of their being.

Chapter Three: The Memory of Stars

Even before the eruption 72,000 years ago, the culture of these children of the Ancient race had devolved, falling from star-farer to cave dweller. Yet that culture retained a faint memory of its ancestry. through the stories they told and the engrams of memory encoded in their cells.

It was precious little to build on.

Chapter Five: The New Gene

Change begets change.

The Ancient spacefarers became humanity. Their ages-long sojourn across the galaxy had already caused them to modify their physical form in significant ways, long before they arrived on Earth.

They survived by mutation, and now their genes converged with the native life of Earth.

They became a new people; stronger, better, faster.

Chapter Six: Collective Consciousness

With subtle interventions from the Observer the human brain slowly mutated.

Receptors emerged in the organic structure, attenuating the higher order thought processes to the Earth’s magnetic fields.

It established synergy between every human being alive, turning the entire planet into a field for cognitive development.

In this way humanity became connected, through the nous-sphere.

Chapter Seven: Synergy

Few humans were aware of the collective consciousness, or that they lived within the dynamic nous-sphere.

Everyone was entangled in it.

It permeated all things, as it was coterminous with the Earth’s electromagnetic field.

It drove many humans into madness.

It required the advent of written language, and thousands of years to figure it out.
