General data
TypeQuest item

A Study in Datasphere Analysis is a Quest item in Torment: Tides of Numenera.


This leather-bound journal is filled with various diagrams, notes, and observations of the machines you found near the engines buried beneath Sagus Cliffs. The handwriting is your creator's, and it chronicles his analysis of the datasphere - the net of information that surrounds and permeates the world's air. Some people have drawn power from the world, and others have found a way to transmit knowledge in the blink of an eye. It seems that these machines may have been intended to transmit consciousness itself... or at least to take a rudimentary first step in that direction. The exact steps are unclear, though someone with an extensive background in consciousness transfer or machine intelligences might be able to recreate his work.
