As interpreted from a transmission received from Even Fleeting.
In September of 2159 (the precise date is not entirely clear yet), the world, as Homo Sapiens know it ends, thanks in large part to an entity known as Z, a collective networked intelligence installed in the body of a genetically altered human being. Even Fleeting, son of Jack Fleeting, son of Travis Fleeting, son of Clarrisa Fleeting, discovers an ancient artifact known as the Imagineum. The Imagineum is, by most accounts, an interactive, immersive database intended to collect the history of humanity in order to eventually store that information outside the entropic forces of the time-space continuum or what is referred to in some documentation as the “common universe.” Created by an advanced speciation of Homo Sapiens known colloquially as the Axons, the Imagineum is intended to serve as a defense against the religious zealotry of the Dendrites, a second species of Homo Sapiens intent on eliminating any and all disruption of the Dendratic timeline, the canonical version of the common universe at it occurred without alteration.
Utilizing the Imagineum, Even Fleeting is making attempts to reconstruct the histories of four families , the Fleetings, the Coburns, the Gunns and the Copelands, whose interactions he believes directly result in the creation of Z. Although not even the Imagineum makes actual time travel possible, its ability to precisely predict variant states of the time-space continuum allows for the generation of highly realistic virtual representations of events in history. Buried somewhere in the Imagineum’s catalog may be the key to unraveling Z’s plans to turn the entirety of the Earth into a space-faring entity, whose departure from the solar system eradicates most of humanity in its early form.
These virtual recreations of events from history, here referred to as “cantos” are currently in the process of being “threaded” together in order to catalog major points of disruption in the Dendratic timeline.
