"Energy can be neither created nor destroyed. However, it can be transferred from one form to another."A DreamerLink is a connection between an Earth dimension individual and a time-dilated dimension's individual. As you check off your real life To Do's, you expend energy. In the To Do List Adventures, this energy is not lost, but transferred to another source: the DreamerLink. The dimension the character lives in cannot move forward at a comparable pace to our own dimension until you transform your energy into fuel through this DreamerLink. (This is why the adventure seems to pick up right where you left off, when you've completed your tasks and return to play the game.) :D In the story world, this alternate dimension created the DreamerLink on the planet of Lutetia at the behest of a well-funded (yet fledgling) galactic organization called The Collective. The Collective intends to use this technology to provide galactic protection and to increase productive livelihoods of the core planets. They intend to quickly span the galaxy with their agents, amassing power, influence, and leverage. Their ultimate goal may or may not be as benevolent as it seems, but whether they intend to build a better galaxy for its people or to rule the galaxy by aggressive control, the plan remains the same. The Collective is not the only force or controlling interest in the galaxy. However, due to time-dilation, their progress in exploring planets and mapping space is far from complete.

The Collective's plan is a multi-phased approach:
