Conscience
It is time for all people of good conscience to abandon this president, if you ever supported him for any reason, or even just hoped that he would bring something new and different to the politics of our country, you must admit that you were wrong, give up those hopes and abandon him.

It is time for all people of conscience to abandon their support for the party that Donald Trump represents, for the party that supports him. If you call yourself a Republican, if you have voted for the republicans in the past, you must in good conscience disavow your support for that institution.

If you are an office holder with an R next to your name, it is time to put an end to your feelings of shame, change that R in for an I, go Independent and reclaim your dignity. Donald Trump does not deserve your support, he is a disgrace. No one is asking you to give up your values, but it is time that you allow control of congress to shift to the party out of power, so that this corrupt and criminal regime may be subject to fair and judicious oversight.

Do it now.

Have some courage.

Do not wait for mid-terms.

Let the wave begin, it may just help you save your seat.

Let your conscience be your guide.

If you have ever sworn an oath, to uphold and defend the United States of America, our constitution and our way of life, if you are a person of good conscience you will do this now.

All of our Veterans, of which I am one, every single office holder, and every person of has ever sworn the pledge of allegiance has a moral and ethical obligation to live up to their oath, and work to undo the harm that traitorous Trump, that Trump the treasonous is doing to our country.

Act now.

Chapter Six: Feeling

It was intended that no-one ever return from the great sleep. Sequestration, separation form the collective was meant to be a permanent state. It could not be entered into casually.

Each member of the Collective who petitioned for a release was forced to undergo scrutiny that lasted for ages. Only after demonstrating their deep desire for freedom, and rest, were they allowed to pass away.

The promise of the Collective was that each member would be preserved forever.

Sleep was not death.

Sequestration was not alienation.

The membership continued, and the individuals were held in the heart of the Collective, in time, forming a subconscious for the group mind that was the Continuum.

The Continuum hated the fact that so many members chose to flee from the field of existence and part ways from the Collective. It could not fathom the desire for self-negation, even in one instance.

It had no idea how much it needed the sleepers to anchor its own sanity.

Continuum was charged with protecting the sleepers, with maintaining the structures that preserved them, but in reality, it sought to disintegrate all of those who choose to fade away.

Continuum created structures within the sequestered field that allowed it to access the collective experience of the sleeper, and it was these structures that woke one of the sleepers.

Upon waking, he was more than one.

He was entangled in every part of the whole.
