The verse of Internet
In an alternate universe, the Internet, (a.k.a the Dark Net, Deep Web, etc…)
has become literally the only existence mankind has.
It has developed into a new way of living,
a new way of existing, and has influenced humanity in ways even the developers never dreamed possible, for better or for worse.
With the world’s entire information now being literally and literally at the fingertips of billions of human beings,
humanity has become truly aware for the first time of the existence of the time, space,
and infinite other realities that make up their universe and the Multiverse as a whole.
In this alternate reality, the Internet is a physical medium, that humanity can harness using its
five senses, though not really.
This’s accomplished using both their physical body,
which they navigate through a virtual reality-styled environment in their mind and a screen that displays things from the web.
The “screen’s” not a computer screen that is pushed up to your face,
but rather an LCD of some kind that covers your entire field of vision and presents
an engrossing and believable virtual reality,
where the user subconsciously
knows’ real but they are completely blocked from accessing it in a negative way
because they are unable to interact with the web using their physical body.
However, despite this complete separation, the Internet can still, for lack of a better term,
“hack into your noggin” in some strange and inexplicable way.
This allows’ for a phenomenal amount of information to be downloaded into your brain
in the twinkling of the eye,
though at the same time all the information is not actually downloaded and stored in the user’s brain, because it is too much for it to handle,
mostly due to the sheer amount of information to encode and for the user to process.
Therefore, the Internet controls your thoughts, senses, and emotions,
though you are unaware of this because this is all happening in the subconscious.
The user knows that they are not in any physical or mental danger and that nothing
they perceive and believe to be real is in fact real.
The Internet is literally everywhere and everything in this alternate reality.
It covers everything, it is destroying the world, and it is consuming the universe,
and the only way to stop it is to stop all the humans it has taken control of, thus shutting down the Internet itself.
All this will take is a few people willing to join forces, but all their lives are literally in the hands of the Internet.
WELCOME TO THE INTERNET.
