Chapter Five: Planning
Once Jim understood the mechanism for the way in which the human race interacted with the cynergenic field, he was able to map out the changes for the genetic profile that he needed to establish in order to strengthen, and enhance those features.
Jim intended to introduce changes into the genetic profile of each tribe at the same time so that he could establish a base set of conditions upon which to build his design, and then he would be able monitor the effects of that by breeding the traits he was looking for into individual tribes separately.
In the scale of time that he and the Collective were used to operating in, he had precious little of it to work with. He feared he would lose the gambit before the next great planetary disaster struck Earth.
He intended to optimize the retention of nanoparticles in the cognitive structures of the brain, making each person a receptive node in the field of consciousness. He intended to stabilize that by giving each and every one of them access to the type of memory that was locked into the root code of their genetic structure.
He took his greatest risk by exporting his work off world, he sent tiny vessels speeding back across the void on a trek of light years to be recovered by him and his agents at the fringes of the Empire.
He needed to safeguard his discoveries against disaster and against the possibility of his failure, so that they could be recreated on any other world that the Empire discovered, having the same conditions that had obtained on the blue-green marble known as Earth.
His struggle would continue even in the event of his failure.
That much he guaranteed.
