Chapter One: Institution

Jim established centers of learning among the tribes, even while they were pre-literate.

He built up systems and oral traditions by which they captured and recounted their histories, which became narratives that took decades to master.

He trained them to manage calamities in this way, to preserve their fragile condition. He conditioned them with mnemonics.

Chapter Two: Logic

There was safety in the vast structure of the schools he founded. Within the great walls of those institutions he formed secret societies to protect and carry out his work.

He layered control devices into their collective memory, repeated through the stories they told, the lists they memorized, the tropes they etched into their hearts.

Chapter Three: Method

The human body had developed a reliance on aggression as a survival skill.

The colonists had come to rely on swift action to mitigate crisis. That had to be tamped down to ensure the survival of the tribes, to keep them from tearing one another apart.

Jim conditioned altruism into the social values he propagated.

Chapter Four: Truth

Jim had to be careful in how the genetic properties and psychic qualities he was engineering into the human race manifested themselves in the population. He introduced subtle changes, and monitored the families for generations following that, normalizing those changes before moving on.

They had to be kept in tension, isolated, and guarded from exposure.

Chapter Five: Communication

Jim began to peel back the barrier that separated one human consciousness from another, he learned to manage their confusion, medicinally.

Madness and insanity followed his subjects, in some cultures he established cultural protections for these people, allowing them to thrive and procreate at random.

In other cultures he isolated them. He deliberately ostracized them.

Chapter Six: Foundation

Jim was pleased with the reaction he received from his subjects.

Few of his experiments resulted in death. Most came through the changes alive, aware, able to procreate.

He established different social paradigms in various cultural groups for how to manage the gifted, establishing structures to identify and report them to him for closer observation.
