Chapter One: A Place in the World

As she advanced in her skills and gained control of her powers, Kathy’s sensitivity to the motives of those around her became profound.

The intentions of the analysts who questioned her were an open book.

Millions of dollars were spent to mask them, to foster in her a sense of belonging, with ever increasing difficulty.

Chapter Two: Valued

In her work place, every little detail of her environment was contrived, scripted, fake.

No effort was spared to engender within Kathy feelings of safety, and love.

In her youth Kathy saw through the contrivances, while valuing the sentiments behind it, taking those for genuine.

Over time all the false fronts vanished. She was cynical.

Chapter Three: Work

The analysts came to see her nearly every day, Sundays being her only respite.

Kathy listened to them.

She read their papers, watched their films, and when they put questions to her, she shared her insight from the depths of her memory.

She read ancient languages, interpreted obscure symbols, and saw the patterns in everything.

Chapter Five: National Security

In order to maintain their own secrecy, her handlers deliberately narrowed Kathy’s focus.

They sought her understanding of minute details, doing everything they could to limit the information that she could glean from them.

She kept her full abilities masked.

She never revealed to them how easy it was for her to penetrate their thoughts.

Chapter Six: Religion

Religious conflicts began to shape the later 20th, and the early 21st centuries. Kathy’s input regarding the origins of these conflicts was invaluable.

 Her ability to pinpoint specific moments in time that were the antecedents of tribal conflict was uncanny.

Her memory produced volumes of insight, but questions along those lines left her deeply disturbed.

Chapter Seven: Writing

The intelligence operatives stopped visiting Kathy in person, they engaged her by proxy, through handlers.

They submitted questions in writing.

She in turn wrote papers giving detail, and context, responding to the questions they submitted to her.

Oftentimes she did not answer questions directly, she supported their work by helping them to ask better questions.
