Career day, they’d say.
Detaching from the cerebral collective, I scour the repository, wanting to remember on my own.
It’s been many a century, but I’ll make change there. They’ve all held strong to their core designs, I’m sure.
“Ah! Found it,” I cease searching.
“This is your ultimate decision?” Great Mind asks.
“My only consideration.”
The air ripples and distorts before me.
“Your pathway is stabilised.”
I step forward, losing myself while Great Mind transports me to form anew on the other side.
I breathe deep the Earthen air.
It’s good to be back.
Time for work.
