No one would have believed in the early years of the Twenty First Century that this Forum was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences?? same as us, and as normal as us;  as ACF users busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over t'internet about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older Forums of the t'internet as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life and fun upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most people who surfed the t'internet fancied there might be other Forums upon the t'internet, perhaps inferior to their own, and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of the t'internet, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this Forum with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the Twenty First Century came the great disillusionment.
