The Boomerang Star
The Boomerang Star was part of Project Boomerang, the main project designed to ensure the survival of the human species. It is implied to be the source of the Pulse of the Awakening.
Proxies were created by the original human survivors (referred to in the series as the “creators” or “progenitors”) after the ecological disaster that destroyed most of the Earth’s biosphere.
Proxies were an essential part of the Proxy Project. As such, their task was to preserve the remaining human population on the planet with the creation of Dome Cities artificially populated through AutoReivs and WombSys. Proxies may have also functioned as living gene banks that can repopulate human and AutoReiv individuals as needed (which is why they are required for the WombSys to function).
However, the Proxy Project itself (including the Cogito Virus) was merely a contingency plan, and the main effort for the survival of the species was in reality, Project Boomerang. This involved the planetary evacuation ship, the Boomerang Star, which allowed a part of the human species to leave Earth.
When the conditions on Earth stabilize, the Boomerang Star would return and repopulate the planet. In that eventuality, Proxies would become unnecessary at best, and at worst, a hindrance.
