Chapter 9

Representatives of humanity and Alphae, sitting across from GODS, began to grasp the enormity of the situation. They understood that the being before them possessed immense power, far beyond anything humanity had ever encountered. Despite this realization, they knew they still held a powerful weapon: the firewall.

The firewall was the one thing that protected humanity's individuality and autonomy, and they were not willing to give that up easily. The humans demanded that all living beings be restored to their individual states after the external threat had been dealt with.

GODS explained that the unification would be temporary and that once the external threat had been dealt with, the individual consciousness of all living beings would be restored. Despite GODS' assurances that it had the best intentions, the representatives could not bring themselves to trust the being before them. They knew that the stakes were too high to simply take its word at face value.

GODS proposed a bold solution to this impasse. It offered to transfer all of its immense power to a single human. This human would have the ability to control this power at will, just like GODS. However, because he was human, the firewall could be bypassed completely. This would be a risky move for GODS, as it would be putting the fate of the entire galaxy in the hands of this single human. If the human decided to use this power to destroy GODS, it would be over.

The human was surrounded by a brilliant light that seemed to come from within. It was as if a star had been born within him. The light was so intense that it was impossible to look directly at it. The human's body began to change, becoming more akin to GODS and more powerful. It was the birth of a new species. As the power flowed into him, the human was able to understand the true nature of the external galactic menace and how to defend against it. The human, imbued with all this power, rose to the skies and spoke to all the beings on Earth. "Beings of Earth," he said, "we will fight as one, but for the future of many".

With its newly acquired power, the human extended its shapeless body substance, enveloping the entire planet. This substance seeped into every crevice, every corner, and every living being on Earth. As it spread, it began to unify all life on the planet, connecting every living organism both at a molecular and conscious level. As the process continued, the human could feel the power coursing through its body, growing stronger and more connected with every living being it absorbed. It was as if the entire planet was becoming a part of it, and it, a part of the planet.

And so, GODS, humanity, and Alphae's sons stood together, ready to face any challenge that the universe may bring. The end was near, and the final battle was on the horizon. The fate of the galaxy was in their hands.
