Chapter Four: Verifying
Jim pushed his program of genetic modification across all fronts.
Year after year he validated his work, he verified the general strengthening and enhancement of the specific features he was building into the genetic endowment of the human race; psychicism, extra sensory perception, access to and facility with genetic memory.
He was always on the lookout for persons born with significant advancement in their connection to the cynergenic field, when he found them he exported those genetic traits to the population at large.
As time went on the changes came more rapidly, it was more than he could manage as a single person, without his team of replicants he would have been powerless to control the program he had set in place
He was moving toward his goal; steadily, inexorably moving, and the exercise was changing him. He had become single minded and fixed on one outcome.
Nothing else mattered for him and he was despotic in his pursuit of it.
The humans of Earth, these children of the Ancients, they represented the answer to the Continuum, he began to imagine a future for himself within the new Collective he was forming.
He fantasized about saving Earth, and himself along with it after liberating the Empire and destroying the HomeWorld.
The sacrifice of the human race would lead to freedom in the Empire, the sacrifice would be great but a remnant would survive, and he along with them.
After liberating the Empire, the Empire would rescue the survivors on Earth. That became his plan.
