Rise/Rejoin

"Well, what you've been calling out of body experience and/or near death experience, tunnel of light, etc. is simply a 17 billion year old consciousness transfer mechanism I created after my first experiments with long range matter transfer of conscious beings. It's an artifact. Also the biggest clue your Universe is simulation, and you are engineered." said Jasher.

"I called it the Rise/Rejoin Routine or Three R's." Jasher looked at the studio audience as they sat there in silence, many with their mouths hanging open. He suddenly felt awkward. "It's um, I mean it has to be there before you die so it has to be built into your hardware."

(dead silence)

"Wow, I'm a buzzkill. Let me explain why. That's at least interesting."

Jasher got up and started pacing as he was talking. More for him than them, but it got their eyes moving, and that would wake their brains up.
 
"We discovered pretty quickly that folks could develop weird phobias about the process because your last memory being you just shut off abruptly started getting people talking about how it felt like dying. So, I wrote a little routine that kicks your perception up multiple orders of magnitude, so time is used more efficiently, and you can put a few hours there in a millisecond, complete with the light and the tunnel ride. And yanno, that's a lot better than just being shut off abruptly and feeling like you died when you are suddenly turned back on. When you walk out the tunnel, it's merged seamlessly with your new body and consciousness start. But even if there's a little lag, the tunnel ride is definitely the way to go. It's neat that weird aspects of things all advanced being eventually experience stay the same. That's one of a few things that remain constant in any Universe with any race of beings that digitize themselves. That tunnel ride routine being written by someone very shortly after they start destroying and recreating themselves for whatever reason."

"Don't you know that a star burns best?"

"You think I'm lying" said Jasher plainly. "I tell you what. You don't have any concept the energy it costs to do what I've been doing here forever. I'll turn the shit off. I warned you. God, I wish Kay was here to see this."
Wolf News main anchor, Bret Starling was ready. This was his moment. The moment that would define his entire career. The guy that had just appeared out of thin air an hour ago was the one Washington called about that could just show up and get right past security. The guy that put the space ship in front of the moon. It was later explained that he hacked the satellite feeds. This guy was a super hacker. If he was careful here, he'd win a daytime Emmy.
Suddenly, next to the hippy looking hacker guy, out of thin air was... no other way to say this, what looked for all the world like Audrey Hepburn. Just, boom. One second nobody, the next, there.

Ah, thought Bret, this was one…

The Greatest (since I got back my rights to it)

Prologue

Smack!  (The sound echoes across the small mostly deserted memorial park)

She had slapped the boy before she knew she was going to do it. And of course the tears started welling up in his eyes.

She felt terrible immediately and tried to comfort him. The boy's daughter came running.

Great.

"All I said was that the man on the statue is ugly."

Lauren caught a hint of movement out of the corner of her eye and realized her mother in law had just barely stopped herself from striking her son again.

She glanced over at her, saw that she was biting her tongue hard, and knew she had to be careful how she worded everything she was about to say to her son or she could become a target.

"William. The man on that statue saved the world. I don't know when we stopped teaching it, but I bet if you told Grandma you are sorr"

"SHE  HIT ME!" through clenched teeth

"WILLIAM."

Sharper this time.

Lauren glanced up and back down quickly and noticed her mother in l…

Johnny Ridestar (stage name), was beginning to think some shit was off. The clue being, the same 15 minutes kept repeating, but with a guy showing up right at the end and shouting "FUUUUUCK!!!" a different way each time. He finally had the sense of mind to just say very loudly, "come earlier so we can talk next time!" to which Jasher tilted his head like a cartoon dog and literally said "huh?" threw up a finger and halted everything.
"Whoah whoah whoah, that makes this all much easier."

Jasher was stubborn. Fuck the simulations. He was going to save the Ridestars. He knew there was a 0.001 percent (identical to the drop rate of the Deathcharger Reins in World of Warcraft before they remade the game for pussies) chance. So hard as fuck. So 47 tries in, same scenario, their bus just breached the guardrails and was already hurtling over the tops of very large conifers. It was the earliest he could temporally fuck with things because of something else…
