'''Morpheus:''' The human organism always worships. First it was the gods, then it was fame (the observation and judgment of others), next it will be the self-aware systems you have built to realize truly omnipresent observation and judgment.

'''JC Denton:''' You underestimate humankind's love of freedom.\\
'''Morpheus:''' The individual desires judgment. Without that desire, the cohesion of groups is impossible, and so is civilization. The human being created civilization, not because of a willingness, but because of a need to be assimilated into higher order of structure and meaning. God was a dream of good government. You will soon have your God, and you will make it with your own hands.

->''We might guess that the Vex confluxes represent the extension of this network across space and time. Perhaps the Vex use closed timelike curves to solve unfathomable computations. Or the Vex may seek to transcend a physical substrate, and move their thoughts directly into the fundament of the universe. If physics is a set of rules that the cosmos uses to calculate itself, perhaps the Vex seek to worm their way into these calculations: [[RealityWarper to become a law of reality]], inseparable from existence. A virus in the system. Perhaps Atheon was the centerpiece of this project, a command nexus that unified efforts across time.''
