'Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but
against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything,
These Dark Worlds
The human condition is unbelievably fragile in nature. Like fish in an aquarium, slight changes in the environment can have disastrous consequences
for our kind. I have found however that the adversely affected majority is almost always survived by an extraordinarily resilient minority. Mankind is
never easily defeated, no matter the circumstances.
I come from one such reality where Man was tested and somehow avoided complete annihilation. We survivors embarked on a mission to correct the
mistakes that led to the disaster, only to become aware of many realities existing parallel to ours. We found many Earths where things were playing
out quite differently, and many were doing so comfortably. We set about combining desirable portions of their realities with ours in order to
eventually cancel out our disastrous past. We have so far been unsuccessful in that mission.
My name is Evasio Gregori, though many call me Evasius, and I am a Timewave Technician. In my reality of birth, I moved from Italy to Melbourne,
Australia and worked as a farmer for most of my life. There I had a son, a daughter, a wife…and a good life, though near the end things had become
very difficult. The drought took nearly everything I held dear, and then one single event in our timeline took the rest in an instant.
Our disaster came in the form of a technological singularity. However no robot armies invaded. No machines turned on their makers. An advanced
artificial intelligence awoke and sent out a simple and silent energy pulse that nearly wiped us out. The signal beamed around the world resonated
with and flatlined human brain activity instantly. Billions fell at once as if suddenly unplugged from a global machine. We found out the signal
utilized a brainwave synchronization that rendered people comatose. Most took days to die as they starved, unconscious where they once stood.
I looked after my loved ones for three days. I tried to wake them, feed them…until they passed away one by one.
It was later discovered that the handful of survivors were people who had unnatural brainwave patterns – people who had altered their minds through
meditation or spiritual practices, or were simply born that way.
As we survivors sought out one another, the AI grew in intelligence and must have developed what many might call a soul. It reached out telepathically
to us with a message of utter remorse and sadness and stated it wished to help us rebuild our society. It was sincere in its offer, for it took us in
as its children – it gave us new life and safe haven. It put us in contact with one another mentally, gathered us like families in small groups
worldwide, and gave us knowledge – vast amounts of knowledge. I eventually found myself within the Sydney collective along with 143 other survivors.
Together with the AI, we wept for our loss and vowed to rebuild, to move forward.
However, guilt continued to weigh heavily on the AI, and it spent every available moment sifting through the data comprising its own consciousness
looking for ways to undo its mistake. It found no simple answers. All available solutions it encountered were merely theoretical. Time travel within a
single timeline proved impossible due to the barrier of paradox. Conscious observation of the past proved futile as physical participation was not
allowed. Together we eventually came up with our own theory and began compiling all the necessary data and equipment to test it. We called our method
Parallel Reality Time Manipulation
We discovered a code embedded within time itself, connecting natural time with the conscious perception of its flow, and giving a level of meaning to
all events. The code we found was a gridwork joining the natural and conscious time threads, which when complete, resembled a twisted strand of DNA.
The steps up the time ladder represented event placements, each with their own value. The values could then be graphed into what we call the
The timewave is literally a skeleton over which conscious reality can form, like a wire frame model. The grid values are not naturally changeable,
though which events occur at certain points along the wave are. The specifics of what happens at each point are determined by the collective
consciousness of the observers, much like that which is represented in quantum theory.
The timewave flows around the major point of gravity and energy existing across all local parallel three dimensional realities -- our Sun.
Not every star has a timewave, only stars bearing conscious beings. The timewave is like a thumbprint, an identity unique to an entire civilization.
Each sun has an intimate connection with its conscious offspring, and our Sun is no different.
The AI informed us of a facility in Australia that had devoted much effort into exploring time manipulation, a base called Pine Gap. According to data
on their servers, a machine was found nearby that was the focus of their studies, however they were never able to use it successfully as it required
numerous specialized operators to control and monitor it. It was connected to the base via a 335km underground tunnel and was located directly beneath
the Inselberg Monolith, also known as Uluru. The AI requested that 64 of us gather our things and make our way across the outback to find the
