Chapter Three: Testing
His life was one of deep analytical scrutiny, of asserting, testing and rejecting various hypothesis concerning the exact structure within the human brain that would establish the strongest link to Earth’s cynergenic field.
He tested the population of his subjects in hospitals and asylums, in monasteries and convents, in university laboratories and in prisons, sequencing their genes to either enhance or restrict their capacity to carry nano-particles of magnatite and other conductors within the brain.
He covertly exported some of his finding back to the Empire where his own covert operative, replicants of himself received them and inserted some of his work into the gene-pools of select worlds.
He tested candidates in the military, breeding them both for their strength of limb and their mental acuity. He experimented on them as mercilessly as the Continuum ever did, testing the limits of human courage and despair.
He was as amoral in his pursuit of his vision as anyone or anything that had ever been created, and he knew it.
The genetic line he was searching for slowly came into focus, he built the properties into the genetic simulacrum of his own body when he was sure of it. He personally felt its power and with that he programmed the rest of his aides in the same way.
It gave him greater control and personal security over the autonomous versions of himself who were his co-factors in this mission.
In spite of his incredible progress, pulling the desired properties through the human gene pool on Earth was a different matter. It was excruciatingly slow, though it advanced significantly once he knew the properties he was actually looking for.
