Chapter One: Spinning
Jim could not be everywhere.
Through the agency of his cadre of replicants, Jim worked tirelessly.
Even with his network of dopplegangers he frequently encountered the limits of what was possible for him to do.
The human population grew quickly, spreading throughout the world. Jim guided them to establish their villages in areas where the electromagnetic fields were optimal for his research, where there was access to water, and where they would develop for the greatest length of time independent from one another.
Jim required autonomous population growth and cultural development to test his hypotheses.
He used his agency to establish networks around the world. He cultivated spies, informants, and confessors in every tribe.
The people called them priest, shaman, witch-doctor, prophet and oracle.
They were the officiants of the sacred rights.
They were his eyes and ears among the people.
They listened to and recorded everything the people said and did, keeping a special ear out for incidences of the paranormal and psychic intrusion.
They were indispensable to him.
