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.

Chapter One: School

 

When she was five years old, instead of beginning kindergarten, Kathy’s parents placed her in a private tutelage. They took this step because they were continuously unnerved by her manners.

 

They were afraid of her, and they feared for her.

 

They were desperate to help her, and eager to be released from their parental obligations.

Chapter Two: Testing

 

The behavior of every tutor Kathy’s parents contracted to teach her fell into a pattern they learned to dread.

 

At first they were delighted, then scared.

 

They tested her, wrote about, and then they sought to exploit her.

 

Every one of them was convinced that the fate of the world hinged on learning her secrets.

Chapter Five: Experiment

 

Kathy read, she listened, watched.

 

She engaged all of her senses in the act of probing her memories.

 

She studied, took tests, and she was tested, probed, examined by her proctors for the limits of her knowledge.

 

There were many occasions when she was unaware of what was transpiring, but she learned to see patterns.

Chapter Six: Psychic

 

Kathy’s handlers had never considered the concept of an “ordinary psychic.”

 

Genuine telepaths were exceedingly rare, but they existed.

 

In the later 20th century their abilities were tested, analyzed, put to use by spy agencies and police forces around the world.

 

Psychic abilities of any degree were extraordinary.

 

Kathy’s gifts required a completely different understanding.
