Chapter Two: Transition

A flash of violet turned to white, a jolt, a buzz, a tensing like a seizure, followed by a sequence of darkness. The transfer of his consciousness to the center of the galaxy was complete.

Jim, the Observer, arrived on the Central Planet in the body of his mechanoid self.

He opened his optic lens.

He was home.

He was not Jim in this place, even though everyone here, every member of the Collective, and the Continuum itself, knew that was his name on Earth.

When the Observer returned to the Central Planet they did not simply rejoin the Collective. The Collective, and the Continuum were cautious, preferring to filter the report of every Observer, before they allowed the information from their reports to enter the common conscious of the HomeWorld.

And so the Observer occupied a mechanoid form, with physical powers greatly expanded and enhanced from the organic life forms they occupied on their observing worlds. The mechanoid body was attenuated to the cynergenic field of the Central Planet but it did not have direct access to it. A physical uplink would have to take place before the data from their last cycle of experiential living could flow into the consciousness of the whole Collective.

It took time. Jim knew this and he was patient. There were hundreds of Observers coming and going at any given time. Jim would have to wait his turn. Many of the observers, housed in their mechanoid bodies were also waiting their turn. They communicated with one another, sharing the highlights of their latest adventures, the triumphs and tragedies of the worlds of their watch.

They all knew Jim. They were envious of him. He was a trailblazer.

Over the ages he had provided his fellow observers the most interesting posts. Leading the Empire to gather all of the ancient societies back to itself. The drama of those discoveries had sustained the Collective, providing its members with a sense of meaning in their lives. And of course, he was Earth.

The charge of being Earth’s Observer naturally fell to Jim, he discovered the lost colony. He established all of the infrastructure, and he channeled the living experience of that planet to the collective for consumption. It was the most watched world in the Galaxy, and the most remote.

Observation - June 2nd, 2017, Friday

The morning sun is streaming in through my kitchen window

Reflecting off a stack of boxes against my book case

The morning sun is bright, and flashing

The day promises to be sunny hot

There is a for sign in the yard next to the sidewalk

It says for sale

I anticipate the footfall of strangers

Walking through my domicile

There are transition coming, I can see them

My cat is sleeping blissfully

Unaware

Chapter One: Journey

A wormhole is not a tunnel in space/time, linking one place to another. A wormhole is a shortcut through subspace, not a passageway at all. It is a transposition. It is trillions of atoms turning on point the point of pin.

A wormhole is to quantum entanglement, the solution Alexander provided for the Gordian knot.

Chapter Three: Nativity
Jim was not his name, merely the most recent name he had adopted as Earth’s Observer. One of thousands over as many lifetimes.

His real name was lost in the Continuum; as all names were. Continuum referred to him with the designation Observer-92835670100561474.

But it was Jim who came to consciousness in the magnetic field.

Chapter Four: Self

Transitioning from one form of life to another, from the organic body of a human, to the mechanical form of a mechanoid was not easy. It was disorienting.

Organic life is thrilling. Being in the grid of silicone circuitry is not.

The mechanoid form had many more freedoms, but life in the body was grounded.

Chapter Five: Strings

The phenomenon of consciousness, it is electromagnetic. It pervades everything. There is no point in the universe that it does not touch. The essence of consciousness is concrescent, coalescent, emergent.

Consciousness exists in many forms; animal, mechanical, and in the collective field. There is no place where it is not.

Everything is entangled in consciousness.

Chapter Six: Bodies

The mechanoid body Jim occupied on the central planet had all of the sensory tools of a human, or of any of the descendants of the ancient race, only deeper, greatly enhanced, and far more powerful, with analytical tools superior to any computational device.

In this body he was completely linked to the Home World.

Chapter Seven: Home

While his consciousness uploaded into the cynergenic matrix of the Home World, Jim set himself free from the couplings that held his mechanoid body in place.

He flew out of the docking bay, that housed the bodies of the millions of observers assigned throughout the Galactic Empire.

He could sense the Continuum just beyond them.
