We face tests all the time, in academics and in life, at work and at play we are challenged. For each of the tests we face the key to success is preparedness.


Gather the essential data prior to the time of testing, practice the moves, repeat the steps. This is the essence of learning.


Organization is key. Sort the data in the manner that most properly suits the nature of the test itself. Approximate as near as possible the physical conditions you will face.


Your time is limited. Your time will always be limited. Break up your study and practice into easily managed stages, execute them accordingly.


Prevent random events from intruding on your agenda, and you will prevent yourself from performing poorly. There will always be demands on your time that you cannot account for. If you are unable to prevent the intrusion, adjust your schedule and compensate to make up the time. The unknown is always with us, just as change is the only constant.


Poor planning will result in poor performance. Performance and planning are inextricably linked. You will arrive at the outcome you have prepared for.


Practice does not make perfect, it merely raises the probability of success.


Stay Grounded, neither overestimate your abilities, nor underestimate the challenge. When you have internalized the data and prepared for the broadest scope of contingencies, you are ready to reflect on the meaning of what you have learned in preparation for the test facing. You have arrived at the synthesis. You are able to employ your understanding beyond the question(s) and challenge(s) that you will encounter in the test that is at hand.


Your skill and accuracy, your knowledge and understanding will manifest themselves in direct proportion to the time and energy you have spent in preparation.


The time is now.

Chapter Six: Music

The collective memory of Earth began with rhythm and became a code fixed in the genes, it united all of the human tribes. It was the drum beat, and the beat was the back bone of the story through which they all narrated their shared history.

The universal archetypes intermingled and emerged from there. The humans of Earth became the greatest story tellers in the galaxy. This was based in large part on their ability to identify with one another, with strangers, or even with fictitious beings.

Humans loved to both tell and listen to stories, even the same story over and over again.

The would narrate and re-narrate, memorizing every detail, and holding it all in their heads, until the time came that they rediscovered script, the written language.

The Collective was obsessed with their music.

The Continuum found great power it in.

Members of the Collective began to year for the reports coming from Jim, Earth’s Observer.

Data was constantly streaming in from remote cameras and microphones, from satellites and other stations.

The Collective wanted more.

Many of the members wanted to join the Observer Corps so that they could experience life on Earth for themselves.

The Continuum covertly authorized some of these missions, and utilized that as a means of control over some of the most vocal members.

The Continuum thought it kept this a secret, but Jim had his own means of spying.
