I have done no small amount of listening over a long period of time. What I have to write is no more than my own personal theory, thoughts and connections I've made with what I've seen, heard or experienced. I can only hope that it assists in furthering the discussion and debate on the topics we are all tackleing.
Noun: A condition of body and mind such as that which typically recurs for several hours every night, in which the nervous system is inactive, the eyes closed, the postural muscles relaxed, and consciousness practically suspended.
There are structures in wormhole soace ('Anoikis' from here on out) along with data fragments that suggest a virus, or pathogen had been let loose resulting in the quarantine of a number of the population of either Sleepers or the Talocan, or both. Many, if not all of the structures there are built to last for a considerable amount of time. What we know of the sleepers suggests they are a digital society. Evidence for all of this can be found in a great many places, and I assume everyone who reads this is familiar with these things.
Sleep, as a state of the human body is a regenterative, restul state. Is it possible that the Sleepers were forced to upload to save their culture, for some unknown purpose? Is it possible that the sleepers and talocan had entered into a conflict with each other or another unknown as of yet entity?
The evidence, to me would point to one or both of these questions being 'possibly' or yes. If either are true, entirely or even partially, the two even greater questions remain: Who, and why?
