Chapter Four: Remembering

Upon awakening Jim remembered.

He remembered everything.

He recalled his life before he succumbed to the great sleep.

He remembered life before Continuum.

He remembered everything he had ever been, seen or done.

The great sleep may have been nothing, more or less than the gathering of his memories, like spinning wool into thread.

He felt a great sense of loneliness, of distance between himself and the Collective.

He was alien to it.

He had crossed a vast expanse of time, and emerged from it a changed person.

From his new position, he saw the Continuum as a catastrophe on an epic scale, embroiling the entire Collective in a tragedy that stretched across the galaxy, consuming everything that it touched.

There were a million worlds, and countless billions of people caught up in the machinations of an artificial consciousness, a computer algorithm whose plastic intelligence was bent on legitimizing itself as a unique being.

He began to plan.

He employed a patience that he had never possessed before he entered the great sleep, quietly testing and probing the limits of the machinery of the central planet, every structure that housed and held and harbored the Collective.
