Continuity, in its very essence, is the transfer of a consciousness from one body to another, with Kuva playing a role in it. According to the War Within quest, the Orokin used this ritual for their immortality.
From dialog and scenery in the previously mentioned quest, the ritual most likely consisted of old and dying Orokin going to a Yuvan theatre, where young and beautiful would be put up for display and selection. The Orokin would then select the person whose body they would use as their new body, after which the Orokin would invade said person's mind to, as Teshin describes it, fill it with despair until only the Orokin remains inside the body. It also is suggested by the Cephalon fragment recordings that Orokin can also participate in continuity even after their body has died.
Because of the nature of Continuity, it might be so that we will see (more) Orokin returning in the future, as Continuity is possible even after death. This mainly might be the reason why the Grineer under the leadership of Worm are seen harvesting Kuva, to prepare for the continuity to, if the player selected moon or neutral choices in the War Within, resurrect the fallen queen. It's also up for speculation is how the ritual works in detail.
