They Call Me Lorgan
Stardate 11 billion B.C.E.
Right after the dawn of creation, there came an enforcer, the purpose of which was to maintain a reasonable structure for life that may form out of the molecular ingredients that will be spreading to infinity.
As eon-after-eon passes, life from nonlife comes to be, the complexity of which increases steadily. As the stars gather in galactic groups of millions, masses of debris coagulate and coalesce. These planets orbit each according to gravitational serendipity.
⃝ oversees the Great Expanse, vigilant to its assigned task of order out of chaos, compiling notes along the way. Like a sponge it soaks in every aspect of what it means to be alive. From the infinitesimal to the intellectual, ⃝ sees all, thereby knows about all. It will be called the Library of Life.
Like a doting parent, ⃝ observes nurtures and guides. True to its directive, ⃝ tracks the progress of every single hotspot pocket of burgeoning civilization. Indiscriminately placed and varied in progress, such distances between these is a natural barrier to interaction. Each believes they are alone among the many stars.
Intelligent life develops ways to communicate. Ideas are molded and recorded. Records are compiled. ⃝ categorizes and takes in every shred. It is the task ⃝ is assigned.
Still more eons come and go. Interaction on individual worlds increases. Rules are made. Populations grow. Technologies advance at varying rates. Levels of communication rise. The thirst for knowledge is insatiable.
⃝ is witness to it all. We do not interfere with the natural progression of life.
