Chapter Seven: Synergy
On Earth something new was fashioned, a collective consciousness. It was atavistic, and unlike any symbiosis that had ever been achieved anywhere else in the galaxy, with the exception of the Collective, the great society of being from which Jim hailed.
On Earth the collective consciousness emerged as a natural property of the human race in a way that allowed it to go unnoticed by the Continuum. The existence of the collective unconscious on Earth was the one thing that the Continuum feared, wanted above anything to prevent, and yet it never imagined that it could happen in this way, therefore it was not prepared.
On Earth, there were few humans who were aware of the cynergenic field, the collective consciousness, or that they lived within the dynamics of the nous-sphere, even though everyone felt it, Until the twentieth century they did not even have the language to describe it.
Everyone was entangled in its cynergism.
The nous-sphere was coterminous with the Earth’s electromagnetic field, as such, it permeated all things.
A small percentage of human beings were more sensitive to it than others. If an imbalance in their physiology caused them to retain too great a concentration of the particles that attenuated them to the field, or too small, they struck an improper balance, most suffered because of this.
It gave some human beings clairvoyant abilities, or clairsentience, clairaudience, so called psychic powers, extra sensory perception, or telepathy.
It drove many more humans being to madness, schizophrenia, psychosis.
In order for human beings to understanding it they had first to wait for the advent of written language, and thousands of years to pass so that they could share knowledge and figure it out.
