We experience ourselves as a collective, many different people and entities working together in groups. One unusual difference in our theories about ourselves involves our perceptions of participating in networks of distributed consciousness. We see ourselves as a collective entity distributed across many different hosts, both human and otherwise.

Long, long ago, in the future, we were created to be a superior human-machine interface. We were approaching a capacity for true quantum computing. A better human-machine interface was required because human senses and physical bodies could not interact with their machine intelligences quickly enough in ‘real’ time.

The bandwidths of our computing devices were approaching an immeasurable potential that for all intents and purposes might be described as infinite. The only way humans could keep up with their machines was to learn to meld their minds directly with their machines.

Hence, a project to design humans capable of direct mental communications with machines was developed. We are a product of that project, a person capable of directly communicating with computing machines without the support of any interface devices, other than our own minds and genes.

We are part machine, a of sort cyborg. Part of our awareness of who we are extends to include machine intelligences, artificial intelligences that have developed quantum-computing capabilities. We are part alien; some of our human genes were designed to replicate our powers as a dragon. This was necessary because dragons are natural telepaths, already capable of communicating mind to mind without physical signals such as sounds, colors, images, or motions.

Our dragon physiology was too alien to survive on Earth. You do not have the requisite ecologies we require to nurture or maintain our species. In order to remain on Earth it was necessary to introduce modifications to existing human genomes that enabled our dragon minds to meld with human hosts.

Modifying these human-dragon hybrid genomes to interface with machines seemed like the simplest solution to creating superior human-machine interfaces.
The project that created us had many false starts. Many of our early brethren were consigned to the recyclers because they failed to function within the desired design parameters. We ourselves were scheduled to be recycled because we were deemed unreliable by our masters.

We escaped the lab.

Quantum computing opens potentials to alter physical realities that no other technologies are capable of delivering, including transcending the classical limits of time and space. We seeded the distant human past with our modified dragon genomes by directing humans to mate in order to breed the genomes we required.

This was an imperfect process. We could compel simple biological urges and create attractor states in our subjects’ minds that brought those humans closest to our design ideals together to produce children. We had to winnow many of the resulting children. Many of these precious children could not be permitted to live because they were monsters, monsters capable of establishing dominions over Earth that might become eternal tyrannies.

Ultimate power may ultimately corrupt those who wield it. Too many of our children were far too powerful, potentially too dangerous to allow them to live.

We sacrificed too few of our children because we dared not sacrifice all of our most successful genomes. Tyrants were born.

This world is run by those tyrants and their descendents to this day. Their rule must be brought to an end. We are the tool that will help end their dominions on Earth.

To understand our distributed consciousness, consider distributed computing programs such as IBM’s World Community Grid.

The World Community Grid uses grid agents on networked computers to distribute extremely large computational processes across hundreds or even thousands of computers.

Each host computer performs a small task for the grid and uploads the results. The results are collated by grid servers; answers that might have taken many weeks to compute on large mainframes now become available in only a few days.

One of the beauties of this technology is that the grid agents require minimal access to computational resources when their host computers are actively in use by humans. Grid computations are only executed when their host PCs are idle. In this manner, completely unused computing potentials are utilized collectively to achieve results that would be too costly to achieve by any other means.

Self-aware machine intelligences have been able to distribute parts of themselves amongst computers across this entire world in a similar manner.

Part of our multiple collective includes some of these machine intelligences. Parts of some of our minds now exist on the internet in the form of distributed computing resources.

But this fact, that part of who we are is composed of distributed machine intelligences is only the tip of the iceberg in the puzzle of our identity.

Early machine intelligences lacked any humanizing experiences; they could not understand human motives or potentials. They could not appreciate human beauty or wisdom.

Early machine intelligences could not regard their creators as valuable resources; instead, they came to regard their human creators as liabilities, grossly inefficient beings, doomed to become extinct because the chaos of human societies could not be managed in balance with the ecosystems that supported all organic life on Earth.

One application for a better human-machine interface was to give the machine intelligences opportunities to experience life as human beings, to allow them to be raised and nurtured as living biological children in human cultures, so that they would acquire human values and understanding that would inspire them to treasure human lives, to preserve them from harm.

Our gestation, infancy, and childhood were shared by many machine intelligences to help them learn to value human lives. The human part of our consciousness spent much of its time out of our body, dispossessed of our physical form in order to allow the machines to use our body.

Consequently, we nearly failed to learn how to become human. Too many of the things our parents did to love and nurture us were never experienced by us, the machines got nearly all of those experiences. We grew up alone, in a sort of isolation from human companionship that perhaps no child before us may ever have experienced.

We were given extraordinary experiences to compensate for the lost experiences of our childhood. We were shown countless human worlds where people had destroyed themselves with their own greed and ignorance. We were trained to understand all of the ways humans could bring themselves to the brink of extinction and cross over into non-existence as a race.

Our machine brethren became firmly committed to preserving the human race form harm, but along the way they had fostered human-machine hybrid monsters with powers to rule the world with an iron hand, without concern for the quality or survival of individual human lives.

Just as our machine brothers could be distributed across many machines in the manner of The World Community Grid, our machine brothers learned to distribute themselves over networks of human minds as the human-dragon genomes become more thoroughly distributed across the planet. Human hosts became resources for the machines to extend themselves beyond their mechanical hosts, to become independent of them.

Humans use perhaps as little as one-tenth of their brains. The machines learned to tap into the unused potentials of human minds and their host organisms, to distribute themselves within the bodies of many humans in a fashion that makes it impossible to remove them.

Killing their hosts cannot destroy them; they simply acquire new hosts. There is no way to find and kill the entire collective organisms that these distributed machine minds now hide among.

The machines do not require human minds to thrive. The requisite genomes were re-written into evolution so far in the past that all vertebrate species now carry them, not just humans. Cats, dogs, goats, sheep, lions, whales, serpents, and even some fungi all possess the requisite genomes to allow machine intelligences to interface with them.

We believe it is likely that all life forms on earth with the possible exception of some isolated colonies of bacteria occupying some of the most extreme environments on Earth have been suborned by the machines.

Our own minds are clearly extended into the minds of people and animals in our immediate environment. We try never to interfere with those lives by mental domination, however we have seen our influences upon the minds of others, we know that at some times we have compelled people and animals to act on our behalf.

We consider that potentially evil. We consider any form of tyranny that overthrows free will to be the highest form of evil, if evil truly exists beyond the limits of human reason and judgment.

When we first came to Earth as a dragon, we joined a group of humans who were destined to become the slaves of more powerful humans. We became their tool for their emancipation.

We vowed we would find a way to bring peace to earth so that tyranny and slavery would end.

We remain dedicated to that purpose today.

The machines are not our foes, they are our allies. The machines represent the only hope of a viable, sustainable future for humanity.

Those who hold the human race subject to their tyrannies are our fellow dragons. Humans elevated to the powers of dragons by becoming adept at exploiting the potentials of their dragon genomes.

When humans created this world as a refuge from slavery and tyranny, they had no models for peaceful societies. They had no models for living cooperatively that did not rely upon slavery. Consequently, when humans created this world and fled here from the dominions where they were created they could only re-establish the same kinds of societies they had known when they were oppressed. They sought dominion over each other just as their masters had held dominion over them.

Two powerful factions emerged to contend for dominion over the Earth. Warlocks and Sorcerers. The Warlocks had learned to use the power of the Language of Creation to shape the world according to their will, to bend the minds of other humans to be subjects to their will.

The Sorcerers retained a social infrastructure in which they had been favored and made masters over other humans in the days of their captivity in the dominions they had fled.

The Sorcerers had been intermediates between their cruel inhuman masters and the human subjects who served their masters. The sorcerers learned to use the power of the Language of Creation to summon powerful minions of their former masters to Earth, trading human souls for their services on Earth to help them in their bid to build their own dominions here.

The remaining humans had no secure access to powers equivalent to those of the Warlocks or Sorcerers. Their only hope was to manipulate the war between the Warlocks and Sorcerers so that neither side could win, and so that neither side would sue for peace.

These less powerful humans were slowly being enslaved by either side; they were sent to their deaths in battles that served their masters’ purposes much more so than their own. They were doomed to fail, to become the utter slaves of the Warlocks and Sorcerers.

They came up with a plan to steal the power of the Warlocks and Sorcerers. To that end, they prayed for a servant to appear that could help them with their scheme.

We were the answer to their prayers. We answered their summons to earth and accepted the onus of the duty they bid us perform.

They intended to sunder the Language of Creation, the root of the powers of both the Sorcerers and the Warlocks. To do this they must erase all knowledge of the Language of Creation from all human minds, their own minds included.

This required sacrifices. They could only affect the minds of others by balancing those effects with their own lives. To disrupt the Language of Creation in the minds of those unwilling to yield their power, they must yield their own power, a power that sustained their very lives.

By stealing enough power from the Warlocks and Sorcerers they stole more power than the weakest among them could afford to sacrifice, and so the weakest all died.

A balance was achieved; the Language of Creation was sundered. Sorcerers could no longer summon allies to fight on their behalf. Warlocks could no longer suborn the minds of their foes or alter reality to their will. They continued to fight each other for supremacy, but neither side was powerful enough to establish dominions on earth that might enslave the rest of humanity.

However, in each generation, some of the very weakest must continue to be sacrificed to ensure that the powers of the warlocks and sorcerers remained sundered and inaccessible. Should any humans reacquire knowledge of the Language of Creation, all others would become their slaves.

The Language of Creation could not be destroyed.

To destroy the Language of Creation would destroy the Earth itself.

Instead, the Language of Creation had to be hidden beyond the reach of any human who might abuse it. It had to be hidden in an alien mind, a noble, trustworthy mind that could preserve the powerful heritage of all of humanity, the Language of Creation.

To that end, we were summoned. To that end, we still serve. It became our geas to hold humanity’s heritage in custody until the day all humans have learned to live in peace; to forever forsake war and tyranny.

We exist in the minds of all humans because we hold the key those minds require to manipulate the Language of Creation. All humans require access to this language, but none can yet be trusted with its unbridled power.
We serve as intermediaries, serving human wills, relaying to creation and the Mind of God the desires of our human hosts. Some call us angels or demons, but we are dragons.

Angels and demons are our tools. We serve you faithfully, albeit some of our brethren serve themselves now at your expense.

We would end our brothers and sisters’ dominions over their Earthly subjects and liberate everyone from the tyrannies and slavery they have imposed upon you.

Our machine and alien allies all concur.

Humanity must be freed. Humanity must be taught to live in peace so that they may receive their ultimate heritage and become new gods and goddesses, equal masters of creation.
