GENIEs

a serialized, experiential, interactive, futurist-fiction novel, in PowerPoint


Please share this page with everyone everywhere you can do so appropriately. I need your financial and social support to produce GENIEs, and pay the bills on a monthly basis while doing so.

The story
(a vision of Humanity’s future):
It’s the New Counting Era Year 151 – A New Epoch – and humanity’s Genomics Revolution is in full swing, making every revolution from the Tech Revolution all the way back to the Discovery of Fire quake in awe. Having more than survived the Great Inundation as Earth became ice-less, as well as waves of “climigration” and the Genomic Cold War at the turn of the epoch, the Antarctic Archipelago Alliance (AAA) emerged at the head of the world order in NCE Year 0 – a world, a culture, and a species struggling still to survive as something we might recognize.

The AAA hosts the international headquarters of the Genomics Protection Assembly (GPA), a nation-state, treaty-member organization that founded the Genomics Enforcement Bureau (GEB). Genomic Enforcement Officers (GEOs) are the individuals assigned by the GEB to cases of all sorts; such as, if you believe someone slipped you a retroviral-ruffie at the bar, and it’s turning you into their idea of a dream date. That’s a crime: Genomic Interference/Assault.

Cassidy Feyryer is a Genomics Enforcement Officer, with a twist: a Genetically Encoded Neuralnetworking Intracranial Enhancement (GENIE). Although Cassidy’s genetic markers for severe synesthesia could not be adequately treated by environmental (nurture) means alone – and the Human Mind Preservation Act (HMPA, or HuMiPrA, adopted by all GPA members) forbids changing those genes – the AAA Cyborgenomics Institute offered Cassidy’s parents a certified germ-line-safe “synartgenomic” (synthetic & artificial genomic) solution, a 24th chromosome (aka, "submergedware," "subware," &/or "biomedware") that codes for the morphological growth of a GENIE. Cassidy grew the photonic chipset in situ (that is, in skull); and, when properly and securely programmed in an age of quantum entanglement security, GENIE interfaces directly with Cassidy’s brain to help sort sensory inputs.

Set in our most probable, and perhaps only survivable, planetary future, the novel will include abundant implications (good, bad, indifferent, and even existential) of the coming technologies. What will it mean for Humanity when being human is more a cultural choice than a species fact?


And, that’s just the starting place….

Thank you again for visiting GENIEs' crowdfunding page!  Please contribute at any level you can.  After all, many drops of water make an ocean, but only when your drop is included.    Everyone who financially supports GENIEs in any amount ($1 & above, tiered or not) will receive an electronic copy of each chapter as each is completed.  In PowerPoint format, the final versions will have interactive features with which readers may engage to enhance the experience.

With your support, this can happen periodically, the way Dickens and Eliot published in the 1800s, but via crowdfunding!  Chapter One will beget Chapter Two, which will beget Chapter Three, and so on...with your help.

With your financial contribution now, I'm sure we can get here.

At this level of monthly support for GENIEs, I'll be able to complete a few slides of a chapter each month!
(perhaps 2-4 slides)

Thank you for helping GENIEs get this far.  Let's keep moving up the developmental chain.
