Chapter Seven: Think Tank
Kathy’s moods normalized as she grew older, she adjusted to the reality of her differences.
Even though she had always understood, objectively, that she was unique, a different kind of human than had ever walked the earth, she had resisted this.
She did not want to embrace it.
She was not homo sapient sapient, she was homo sapient ancestral.
She was not only self-aware, she carried within her the full awareness of her ancestors.
She found resources in her memory to guide her in the development of self-control.
She quietly disciplined herself to the measures that her ancestors desired her to take, she did this in the field of her consciousness, where time was meaningless. She did it in no-time.
As she learned to control her feelings and her moods, she learned to do many other things as well.
She disciplined herself to the practical tasks that she was always being asked to perform by her handlers.
Her gift for analyzing data grew exponentially.
Institutions formed around her, access to her was more valuable to national intelligence than access to the fastest super-computer.
Her existence was among the most closely held secrets in the government, only the National Security Council had an inkling of the full range of her capabilities.
