Piecing Together the Plot Part 2: The Exogenous and XM
I’ve heard many conflicting things about XM and the Exogenous. I know that, at its core, XM is “raw, intelligent data”. But what does that actually mean? If there are two reactions people have to XM (attraction and abhorrence), then why does the faction that exhibits a general repulsion towards XM still use XM-based technology in the scanner? How is XM used by the Exogenous? What kinds of exogenous are there (I’ve heard whispers of something called the “Undine”)? There’s a lot of stuff to clear up with these topics, so any knowledge you could add would be greatly appreciated.
