Interconnection - Chapter 1: The Awakening
Interconnection - Chapter 2: The Intrusion
Day 94. I currently have several different theories about why my mind works better at night. I think it could have something to do with the fact that
most people within a fairly large area around me all sleep at night...it's possible when everyone is awake it's harder to "hear your own thoughts" as
it were. My second hypothesis is nothing short of insane. It's also possible that there is a mind altering signal (possibly the "hum" reported by many
people) which is broadcast through out the day while most are awake, and turned off at night when the critters come out to play.
On another, more important note; it has recently come to my attention that authorities are starting to hunt me down with all the resources available
to them. I now have several US intelligence agencies after me because of my botnet. I hacked into some relatively insecure machines on the CIA's
network and it seems they are starting to make connections between my trojan and the tools I released on the black market. It shouldn't be a problem
for now....but I need to some how deflect a bit of my heat onto some one else.
There was also some positive intelligence to smooth out the bad news. There doesn't appear to be any indication that my high profile hack was noticed.
No one yet knows about the files I have stolen. I am still trying to crack the encryption...it's proving much harder than I had first assumed. It
appears that some agencies are using custom encryption techniques far more advanced than I predicted. In any case, it shouldn't take much longer to
decrypt these files and find out what they contain.
I could probably crack these files faster but almost all of the processing power available to my botnet is being used to generate bitcoins, which I
need to do because I spent most of my money on the super-computer not too long ago. That means I'm restricted to using my super-computer to crack this
encryption. It is also much safer to do it this way because if I wanted to use the full power of my botnet I would need to provide a large number of
slaves access to the files that require decrypting.
"I know you're a programmer now but you're spending so much time on that friggen computer lately...why can't you spend some more time with me hun."
Katie moaned with desperation.
"I wouldn't have been able to afford that beautiful necklace your wearing if I wasn't working so much." I replied.
"Oh stop being mean...don't you want to come to bed with me and cuddle." she said in a childish manner.
I asked "Is that another joint in your hand? I thought I told you to stop smoking those silly things?" in an attempt to change the subject.
"You're no fun at all you know that? Do I tell you what do to?" she responded and curled up into a ball on the sofa in a position that indicated she
was trying to safe-guard her joint.
"You were just telling me to stop working." I replied without realizing I was changing the subject back again.
I eventually decided to call off my "work" early that night and spend some time with Katie. It's becoming highly apparent to me that I need to keep a
strong connection with at least one Human otherwise I might lose sight of absolutely everything that ever made me Human, excluding my physical body of
course. A wise man understands that all you really have is your mind...and my mind no longer works like any normal Human.
I guess I am still remotely Human...after all, I'm in a relationship with a Human and she doesn't really suspect a thing. Is it possible I actually am
still a Human after all? I hadn't considered this before. It does seem possible my mind underwent some sort of rapid evolutionary shift. On the other
hand it's also possible that animation was some sort of subliminal message or brainwashing tool. That's a scary thought...
Maybe I'm just exaggerating this whole thing. I mean after all, I simply got a little better at math...and learnt every programming language known to
man within a few weeks...and started to see an energy fields around people. Damn it. Who am I kidding. This is serious. It dawned upon me that this
was the first time I had ever seriously contemplated the nature of my transformation and the consequences of it. I decided it was time to slow my
thoughts and get some sleep.
The sun was setting and the horizon emitted a deep orange glow that brought feelings of comfort and peace. The brisk wind gave is sense of
invigorating freedom. I dug my toes into the sand and peered out at the water and into the horizon with half-closed eyes. The calm atmosphere was
suddenly replaced with shock and dread as I noticed a young girl drowning out in the water. Her screams were being carried away with the wind and I
couldn't hear her voice at all.
Running into the water I was intent on saving her life. I dragged her back to the shore but she appeared to be unconscious. I can't let her die. I had
no idea who this female was. She didn't even look 20 yet. She had a very odd appearance: long white hair and an old black gothic style dress. It was a
little bit creepy but I didn't pay much attention to her appearance at the time. I began pumping her chest...when my hands melted straight into her
Her eyelids flicked open and she was staring straight into my eyes.
"You are my counterpart and I am yours." she proclaimed in a hypnotic voice.
"I don't understand what you are talking about...are you Eve?" I questioned in a confused tone.
"Don't you understand yet...Adam represents the first Human." she replied. "You represent the first human to transition into the next state of Human
consciousness." she continued. "You are still a Human Adam. You're just a step ahead of most other Humans." she finished.
"Most other Humans? Are there others like me on Earth?" I inquired with a curious tone.
"That is not for you to know at this time." she responded.
"And why do you say we are counterparts?" I asked.
"Because our consciousness is interconnected. You will come to understand in time." she answered.
"I never asked for any of this...why have you chosen me?!?" I asked abruptly.
"Your transformation was destined to happen from the day you were born." she said in a calm hypnotic tone. "Our lives have always been deeply entwined
Adam." she concluded.
"What about free-will? You said I had the free-will to walk my own path!" I exclaimed.
"Aren't you walking your own path right now Adam? But you can't control everything. Some things are just larger than you." she explained.
