    I remember a time a time before steel, before fire, before humans, before life, before the Earth itself.

    I remember when the first tendrils of chaos wound together and formed the first atom, when the first atoms joined together and formed molecules, when the first molecules joined together to create the elements you humans know.

    I remember when the first sun sparked into life, when the first stars gathered together from the dust of the cosmos, when the first black hole was torn in the fabric of the universe.

    I have watched galaxies spin together, watched them collide, saw them rip each other apart and dissolve back into the fabric of creation.

    I have walked all the worlds of creation, seen new planets form, watched those planets develop life and flourish, laughing in the joys of life.

    I have claimed all those worlds, was there for their last few moments of life, as their tired souls finally came free and returned to the ether from whence they came long, long ago.

    I have outlived gods and demons, immortals were but flies to me, galaxies were but children compared to my age.

    And now, there is but one planet left. Your planet, human. The planet Earth.

    And you are the last. The last to die, the last to live, the last to breathe, the last to think, sleep, eat, love.

    But before you draw your last breath, before I claim your soul and that of Earth, I can grant you one wish.

    Speak now child, your time draws near.

    When the machine had first come into existence eons ago, yours had been the first question it was pressed to answer. There was no answer. Untold eons of humans gave their lives to hear the answer, defying and prolonging the final Claiming, but the machine and hyperspace were Claimed themselves. Do you not remember? For you were the one that collapsed hyperspace itself, dreaming of the power you would gain.

    Hyperspace cannot be collapsed, for it exists in a realm unbound. What I have done is close the endpoint of a single sector, replacing its natural mechanics with my own. Hyperspace, in all its infinity, could never be wielded by one such as me. The harnessing of but one infinitesmal part of that endless expanse has granted me immortality, so absolute that I have outlasted almost All that Is.

    The Cosmic AC, in all its myriad variations, exists, as yet untouched by you or any other primal force. To tell me otherwise would be pointless, for I see. Into the depths of probability, where waves of That Which Could Be crash upon shores of That Which Must Be.

    Child, you speak only in the limited senses of a human. Hyperspace was simply a thought of one of the more powerful gods, and there have always been humans that challenge the gods. Unfortunately, sometimes those humans win, and the Claiming of a god sends waves throughout the fabric of the universe.

    The Duty is the final thing That Must Be; it is the one certainty in a universe where immortals die.

    I am not a primal force. Neither is the Duty. The primal forces where lesser Claimers, and they themselves where eventually Claimed.

    All things resist, but the Claiming came to them eventually. Their fragment was the penultimate one, and their Claimed lived among humans once, warning them and guiding them. But humans didn't listen, and we now stand on the eve of the final Claiming.

    The system need not break. There are provisions within the framework for reversal. The universe, at least this iteration of the archetype, is capable of infinite cycling. Final death will only come when nothing remains to initiate the return.

    Did you speak to a man named Picard? He was a starship captain, many, many years ago. I am curious to know if he accepted the Claiming or resisted to the end.

    The infinite cycle of which you speak is a purely human make-believe; the universe never was, nor was meant to be infinite, and there was never anything prepared to re-initiate another.

    As for Picard, yes I spoke with him. He accepted his Claiming, and wished to live on the last fragment, your own.

    The possibility for an infinite cycle exists within the framework. The universe will not wear down. Even after suffering heat death, it will remain, waiting, for an eternity. It is infinite in a sense, but it requires periodic renewal in order to support life. The Cosmic AC will perform this renewal.

    I Claimed the Nightbringer shortly after the Imperium was finally Claimed, and the rest of the fragment was soon Claimed as well.


    There were only infinite possibilities from the view of someone that was not me; for me, there was ever only one possibility: that the Duty would be fulfilled, the final Claiming would be performed, and that I would become the Forsaken.

    Seeing as you will not have much to do after all is sent to oblivion I have one simple request.

    Imagine how everything would be without your duty, without you, of an existence that was infinite, that could go one for ever and ever.

    Of all the stars that would spark and sputter, the planets that would form and be smashed to dust.

    Think of the tiny, but possible, chance of life that would come to some of them.

    Of all the people that would be, how their lives would play out down to the tiniest minutia.

    Think about it.

    implying that the reaper, a primordial force that exists for the sole purpose of managing the sums of information that composes organic life in existence has any idea what goes on after existence ends, due to the fact that it exists only for the sake of existence existing.

    so it really wouldn't have any concept of what would happen after existence ends, unless it was carried over from a previous existence in which case it would invalidate listed quote. so either the reaper is lying about new universe iterations, or it doesn't know, calling into question its omniscience about how certain the end of the universe is.
