Spoiler-free Zone
The information on this page is free of spoilers or has spoilers hidden and is safe to read if you have not read much of the canon and want to avoid being spoiled. Editors, make sure to help keep it that way!

The timeline of the Post-Self cycle spans just over three centuries, encompassing both the creation of the upload system and the arrival of the Artemisians on the Castor launch vehicle and partial dissolution of the Ode clade. The cycle tells only a portion of the history of the System, a microcosm of a world full of billions.

Spoilers are marked as such: Yikes!. Hover/tap to expose the spoiler.
