Chapter One: Fantasy
Jim did not require the Continuum or its vast technologies to aid him in the creation of his fantasy world.
He did not need any assistance because his world was one of simple idealism.
After spending ages in the dark, sleeping the great sleep, floating on the undulating waves of consciousness, he was content to retreat into the silence of his private domain, a plane of light and peace.
He was looking for purity, thirsting for it. He wanted to purge his heart and mind from the rank hedonism that preoccupied the consciousness of the majority of the membership.
He was free to do this, but it disturbed the Continuum.
He did not want to return to the great sleep, but he wanted to be alone.
He avoided contact with his peers, but he could not live in that place of pure light at all times.
His own fantasies involved the reorganization of the Collective, returning it to a noble purpose, the installation of altruism, and the destruction of the Continuum.
He could not let his thoughts manifest themselves in his private domain, if he had, the Continuum would have known.
He learned to buffer them.
