Chapter Three: The Parts

The Collective formed the Continuum, its membership was greater than a trillion beings. Each persona was a distinct entity, a unique individual carrying the whole compressed within itself, just as every unique cell in a biological entity carried within it the genetic sequence capable of replicating the body.

This was true of nearly every member of the Collective, excepting those who had detached, separated from the group to become Observers in the Galactic Empire, excepting those who had become sequestered, who were lying in the great sleep..   

As individuals, each member of the Collective was utterly free, there were no limits to the types of experiences they could have and share with others. They could live in realms of pure fantasy, or vicariously through the missions of Observers, out among the inhabited worlds.

The private realities of the membership varied from one another in countless ways. Some members did nothing but contemplate esoteric philosophies, following that pursuit until their individuality became meaningless to them and they fell into silence.

Other members focused on a repetition of the past, reliving relationship long gone, undoing mistakes, making amends in endless cycles of guilt, shame, penance, or alternately of power, persuasion and lust.

Some of the members created private worlds that they ruled over as God’s.

Other members created private world’s where they lived out all of the possibilities of a normal life.

Many of the members devoted their private worlds to their own pleasure, hedonism, and greed.

Most of the members were preoccupied with the worlds of the Galactic Empire, following the lives of individuals and families, as a normal person might read a book.

#Emergence

The Body; Part Eight,

The Body; Part Eight,
Chapter Five: Belonging
Pt. 08, Ch. 05
There are many forms of belonging; free or by compulsion; and then there is metaphysical belonging, because you are.
