Additional Resources

Dig DeeperIf you find that you want to learn more about past events in the Ingress Investigation, there are many resources to explore and a deep well of knowledge to investigate.

Don’t go alone. Use the social networks and comment threads to talk to other Agents about your discoveries and questions.

Follow the threads. Each asset in the Investigation will lead you to another. Travel through them, the truth exists not in any single document or page, but in the connections that form between them.

Don’t be overwhelmed. There are thousands of items to read, listen to and watch. You don’t need to know everything to be empowered, only what will guide your thinking for the challenges you face today.

Take things a step at a time… Focus on the journey, not the destination.
