A tunnel opens in our sun and Dandelion streaks across open space towards Earth. She is “Part of One”, a fractal fragment of the hive-mind “One” from a higher plane of the Universe. Projecting familiar appearances into our simple primate brains, Dandelion moves among us unseen, studying our responses. But though she passes as human, she can’t communicate as one. Her life as an individual entity is lonely.

Dandelion has come for her Greatmother: our home planet Earth is the larval form of her species, and will become like the “One” that she is a part of. The Greatmother is due to awaken soon, but her surface apes look like they’re going to self-extinct first, leaving no one to build and activate the Greatmother’s neural pathways connecting all life on Earth into a single mind.
