Epilogue: Part One – Surrender
It was the end of everything.
Kathy braced herself against the conflagration that was consuming the world. The more she resisted the more she felt herself fading away.
She felt billions of beings reaching out to her, as if she were the one and only buoy in a sea of calamity.
In her mind she was trying to hold on to everything that she knew and loved, but in reality, her individual loves, and desires, the things she hoped for, they trapped her.
She had only one option.
To let go.
Kathy was overwhelmed by the psychic storm from the cataclysm on Earth, she surrendered to it.
She remembered the lessons she had learned as a girl, she recalled the Chinese finger trap.
She relaxed, and allowed the storm to pass through her.
She had prepared for this her entire life.
She let go of her fear and everything she hoped for.
Her individual consciousness expanded, she became co-terminus with the entirety of Earth’s cynergenic field.
For the briefest of moments she was one among many, and then everything changed, she became the one who was all, the all in one, the atavistic consciousness of humanity.
