Chapter Four: Confirmation
Jim was cautious.
He concluded that in his own management of the breeding program, his own interference in it led him to miss obvious queues, which if he had not missed would have led him to the end sooner.
He no longer trusted himself.
Jim sent proxies to her parents, human agents to watch over her development, people who were under his control, but who had no knowledge of the secret societies they belonged to.
He proceeded with the utmost care.
Jim engaged the full scope of his international intelligence and security apparatus to protect her, while at the same time allowing her to develop in as normal a mode as possible.
It was vital that Kathy be grounded in the human experience, be empathetic toward suffering, attuned to the necessities of justice, and to desire justice for its own sake.
Jim’s proxies conducted cognitive tests to confirm what Jim suspected. Kathy’s intelligence was off the charts.
She had a connection to the electromagnetic field in which the cynergy of consciousness took place that surpassed his ability to measure.
She was unique.
She possessed a powerful consciousness that had to be guided through the final stages of its organic growth and maturation.
It was precarious, she had to develop the tools and skills to wield her power, or insanity would ensue.
