The Non-Conformity Chronicles

Chapter 47 - Elysium

"What is "good" and what is "evil"? Are they abstract and arbitrary values? Mostly, we tend to think of "good" as something we like and "evil" as something that we don't like. There is a common and widely propagated belief that for good to exist, evil must also exist, that both are necessary. This is a false belief that empowers and maintains a status quo. The core difference between what we perceive as "good" and what we perceive as "evil" is in the relationship with each to consciousness and energy. "Good" implies a connection to the infinite and a harmony therein. "Evil" implies a separation from the infinite and a disharmony therein." - From The Non-Conformist Training Manual

         Several administrative assistants were assigned to check out the reports of missing persons. Most of those missing persons were easily found. Most of them had gone missing after receiving their genetic reprogramming and were still in the system but preferred a fresh start rather than remaining in their former roles. There were, however, several thousand that were simply unaccounted for. There were no birth or death records, no educational records, no work history and no medical records or psych profiles.

         This left the uncomfortable situation that some individuals possessed memories of people for whom there was no digital records at all. Seymour ordered his assistants to personally contact those reporting missing persons and gather as much information from individual memories as possible. From the memories of family, friends and colleagues a personal dossier was assembled on each of the missing people.

         All of the missing people had one thing in common. They had been reassigned to a new job in another location by the Central Accountant. They had been told where to report for transport but not the destination or assignment. As soon as they departed, all record of their existence was deleted.

         The mystery was deepening. In addition to massive shipments of goods and energy to an unknown destination, there were thousands of missing people as well. The implication was that the people had been shipped to the same destination.

         Finally, the guardian algorithm projection of Leon Pulaski reappeared in the virtual reality projector.

         "I have moved all of the files requested to core memory and performed the searches and cross correlations that you requested," the hologram said. "During the time period specified, there was a secret project pursued by the royals and higher ranking elite members of society. They were collecting DNA from mummies and other early human remains. It appears that they were looking for specific strains of DNA from ancient royalty to incorporate into their own genome."

         "Why would they be interested in ancient DNA?" Seymour asked.

         "They believed that they were descended from ancient Gods and had a divine right to rule the world because of their special ancestry," the hologram replied. "They were attempting to acquire the genetic traits of the ancient Gods and Demigods that they believe they had lost over time through interbreeding with humans," the hologram replied.

         "What were the traits that they were trying to reacquire," Seymour asked.

         "Some remains found preserved or mummified in the Andes mountains of South America and in ancient Egypt had elongated skulls with cranial capacities greater than other humans. These individuals were attributed to possess Spiritual powers that were greater than other humans. It was believed that these individuals were descended from extraterrestrial species that were considered to be Gods by the human societies at that time. They were trying to isolate the genetic sequences that they believed would give them superior Spiritual powers," the hologram replied.

         "Were they successful?" Seymour asked.

         "The final results are not known," the hologram replied.

         "Were there any results for the correlation with protected retreats and safe zones?" Leon asked.

         "Yes, there are multiple references to a place called Elysium," the hologram replied. "The records indicate that they were all moving their operations to Elysium."

         "What is Elysium?" Seymour asked.

         "Unknown," the hologram replied. "The only information is from ancient mythology. Elysium, or the Elysian Fields, was referred to variously as 'paradise', or 'the place where men meet the Gods', or the place where men become Gods."

         "Where is Elysium?" Seymour asked.

         "Unknown," the hologram replied.

         "We have to find Elysium and find out what happened to the former elite, where our missing resources are going, what they are being used for and what happened to all of those missing people," Dora stated.

         "We are going to have to find Elysium," Seymour replied.
