Chapter One: Loss

A sense of loss overwhelmed him.

He had missed so much, and wished now that he could have played a part in the powers that had shaped the galactic Empire, and the culture of the Collective

As he regained his senses, he was inundated by the knowledge of everything that had transpired without him while he was lost in the great sleep: the growth of the Empire, the development of the Observer Corps, and the ascendency of the Continuum over the Collective which created it.

It was painful.

A sense of conscience had nearly disappeared from the Collective. Those members that possessed it, were among the groups that had withdrawn from the drama of the living worlds.

Their attention was focused almost completely on the fantasy worlds that they themselves had created and maintained.

They might seek to govern those worlds with a degree of moral probity, of ethicality. This served the Continuum as a check on the more outrageous whims of the majority of the Collective.

The morality of those few groups was like back ground radiation, white noise, it was a subconscious buffer that guarded the Collective against lawlessness, generating within the Continuum the conviction that it was right to carry out its own machinations.
