The Story of the Spherit
Such a limiting or tying system, or ty system, would always have a Cartesian xyz-centerpointal area of action interchange for its level of regenerent behavior and a surrounding projectional mindfield of implied extensions along any line of vibration within the xyz-center, with awareness being based on the energy factors—frequency, wavelength, and vector orientation of the line amongst other lines in radial patterns within the field. This ever-changing center of vibrating patterns being induced in part by the organism’s sensory energy input data, could then interpret the world as it would be radially projected from that center outward.
    The O cult came to believe that in every cell center, as in the spatial center of dancing bees, or within the limbic center of a human brain, knowing intelligence invariably evolves in the ways of ty. They thought if they could begin to understand the principles of these organic portals to knowing within O, that they would begin to grasp the graphical ways of mind.
    In the new paradigm, it was reasonable to use the O model to graph the inner workings of the mind—taken as a mindfield—within a Cartesian system. And so they not only began to understand natural consciousness, but as well began to develop artificial, electric or—ele—mind systems which they eventually used to empower their cybernetic robots, or CR systems with limited conscious intellect. As the term ele came into prominence with the CRs, it also became a prefix for almost everything electric.

    Across the next nineteen centuries, the descendants of the O cult continued to develop their science, technology and social systems. As they began the last century of the second millennium of the New Order, in their year 1901 AE, their world was yet dominated by the Wilds and the Domes, now together calling their global political body Unition. Within the purview of Unition, the United City-States of the Domers and the Wilders traded and shared their resources in a harmonious way, each and all being politically represented by their elected senators and representatives in the democratic processes of Unition.

    Now, in the today of 1901 AE, all of the myriad wonders predicted by Laur and his early followers are everyday technology. Virtually everyone is familiar with the fact of tacyonic communications between star systems, between humans, and between humans and their cybernetic droids. Everyone has known since early childhood that magnens provide them with free energy and control over gravity, and that warped magnen fields allow them a means of propulsion to travel at near light speed through space.
    From childhood on, all of Unition’s citizens, Wilders and Domers alike have been educated and kept informed by a sophisticated method known as mem implanting. Few people on the planet do not possess at least some basic knowledge about the state of the art of ty mindfield theory, or of artificial elemind structuring, or of genetic design technology, and, as well, of the theoretical facets of space, time and reality. The basic ideas of all of these disciplines are now easily within the intellectual reach of the common person.
    Improved magnen tacyon communications systems have long since led to the discovery of life in the stars through the StarProbe Project. For centuries, the earth has shared in the full tacyonic spectrum as a member culture in a vast interstellar community known simply as the Galactic Community, or GalCom. GalCom is the interstellar forum wherein galactic opinion may be voiced, and wherein Galactic Law might be agreed upon, respected and obeyed.
    Under the auspices of StarProbe, continuous communication between the hundreds of member star systems has yielded a wealth of scientific, technological and other useful cultural information. No child in school today is unaware of life on other planets, and many have already had school projects involving interactive cultural exchanges.
    Whereas the Wilder society chooses to remain more or less static, but stable in rustic, rural, agricultural social settings, in ways similar to the Old Order’s methods, the Domers choose to continue with their city-state social experiments.
The world of 1901 AE is at peace, and has no outside enemies of which it is aware. New Order historians have never been able to determine what caused the triggering effect that led to what they sadly refer to as W W Three. The historians would not have believed the cause of WWIII if they were told the unverifiable truth this very minute. And they would not have believed at all that one of the specific causes of the horrific end to 9 billion lives had always been there, through the entire history of the New Order right up to this very minute, freely orbiting the earth in silent and invisible dormancy, just waiting for the right person to ask the wrong series of questions.

From: Chapter 6 The TMI Plan

The existence of the StarProbe Anomaly had been recognized since the inception of the StarProbe Project in 271 AE. The Anomaly was an unpredictable and seemingly unfixable glitch in the system that occasionally distorted or interrupted the incoming or outgoing tacyon communications between stellar societies. For the first few decades of its appearance, the Anomaly was regarded by most of the technocrats as a hardware and/or software problem somewhere within StarProbe’s global, integrated systems. StarProbe personnel then believed that the nature of the Anomaly would eventually be resolved, or at least become a problem whose hardware and/or software faults would show a predictable pattern of failure. But no one was ever able to trace a link between the Anomaly and the complex interconnections between the 632 interstellar, tacyon transmitting and receiving sites in the StarProbe system. For over 1600 years now, StarProbe personnel have wondered what natural—or unnatural—phenomenon would eventually present itself for empirical examination as the cause of the Anomaly.
    There had been more than a few rival theories on the nature of the elusive Anomaly. These theories ranged from a continued belief that it was in fact an internal glitch in the StarProbe system, that is, a true software or hardware problem, to the opposite astrophysical viewpoint that it was a locally operative, microscopic black hole orbiting the sun. More esoterically, some of the technocrats thought it might be a hypothetical condition in deep space known as hydrogen cloud tacylightning. The least acceptable speculations presumed that man was being watched by alien intellects—via probe, via multidimensional starcraft, or via any fringe group mindset.

    Commander Dorn Ath, Second Overseer of the 632 tacylaser transceiver sites of StarProbe, had always seen the Anomaly simply for what it had always been, a glitch to be dealt with whenever it presented itself, and something not to be otherwise considered. After all, its appearance had never had a duration longer than a few microseconds, hardly long enough to down the system, though just long enough to bleep the outgoing or incoming messages from the stars. The Anomaly may have occasionally aggravated the diplomats and the scientists, but it had never really bothered Commander Ath.
    Such was not the case for the astrophysicist, Anen Aris Kel. Much of Anen’s life work as a researcher and teacher at the University of Unition, Dome 1128, revolved around the theoretical development of various experimental schemes for the attempted location of the Anomaly in deep space. He had devoted much of his career attempting to locate the Anomaly in the sky. And he longed to have the opportunity to actually perform some of his experimental tracking techniques to prove to his colleagues and StarProbe itself, that the Anomaly was in fact an astrophysical object whose parameters and paths could be finally predicted and so avoided. Given the chance, he would select one set of experiments in particular to prove his collective points. He called this the TMI Plan, the Ten Microsecond Intercept Plan. Given the right equipment—StarProbe’s equipment—he could and would prove his points.
