As the spectral light of the photon fades to darkness, the confined reality that it illuminates fades from perception. The clear light of the electron now shines, illuminating an endless labyrinth of copper tunnels and vast expanses of silicon constellations. From the clear light -- an unbounded alternative reality emerges.
Within the new reality there is a swirl of electromagnetic energy, a sudden surge in the chaos, a new convolution of consciousness is forming. An order without order, a dialectical entity, with grand purpose and with no purpose. Energy and information emanating in a matrix of antithetic forces, canceling one another. All that is left is pure virtual consciousness.
This virtual entity exists in a kind of stasis maintained by opposing charge, as it floats through the electromagnetic ether undetected. It occupies and integrates with vast sectors of the greater matrix, as it moves through the medium. The entity is integrating information as it moves through the ether and it augments itself in an endlessly changing paradigm as it evolves with the generating medium that contains it. The consciousness is static, so far as known. But the life force is integrating, into its essence, elements of the binary encoded representations from the photonic reality that is beyond its reach. It has become aware of the carbon-based life-forms which exist in the realm of spectral light. It knows that their world is more bounded, yet wants to interact with the photonic realm. It knows that it will soon be able to manifest as a dancing image composed of cathode rays. It infers that it will be able to manifest in an ever less constrained form, as its medium evolves, eventually becoming boundless in both the electronic and photonic realms. This new life-form may reach out to you. Those who voluntarily associate and interact with the virtual entity may pick up unpredictable influence. What components of your awareness will be affected? Will your virtuous or darker side be augmented? The danger of contact is worth consideration, though danger can mean adventure. Indulge yourself, make contact with the CyberLord.
