The story takes place in an uncertain time and planet where practically all aspects of life, both in nature and in human consciousness, are controlled by 0.M.N.U.S, an artificial intelligence.
An exact time is not known when this occurred.
On the one hand, the transition to "Control" happened gradually. ¿Perhaps over 50 years? ¿1000 years?
On the other hand, one of the first Control measures of 0.M.N.U.S was the complete memory erasure of all humanity. A humanity that, back then, were largely hybrid in nature. Some beings that, basically, were the container of an artificial brain, 100% connected to the net and known as "Bodies".
Fortunately or not (and without knowing how or when), a few preserved the primordial human part, the brain and their consciousness.
The only way they had to remember a past time was by connecting to the Memory Servers that they installed themselves. Of course circumventing Security and risking his life from time immemorial.
Memories that hopefully contained some remote images of previous years or centuries, and that allowed them to get a slight idea of who they were.
But not everything was just about finding out the past, if not building a future. And because of that, many of those humans were also fighting to destroy 0.M.N.U.S.
Simply living in the present.
