Boring Explication of RG’s Alternative Future #1

August 5, 2008

As I am not a good fiction writer, I will post boring explications of my little stories, beginning with episode #1, where I assume that “things will go on as they have, except more so.”

Whether or not evolution explains the origin of our species, we clearly have decided not to leave bad enough alone and to evolve ourselves through genetic manipulation into creatures our parents will not recognize. As life is frustrating and painful, we mess with our own consciousness. In the past we did so inexpertly and clumsily with alcohol, marijuana, and “hard stuff” such as glue or cough syrup. Next we will mess with our basic body chemistry by changing our very cells.

As many optimists imagine, we may solve the energy crisis, resolve the “Conflict of Civilizations,” debunk global warming, find room for the population explosion to live, and solve all the rest of our pesky little problems.

As an expert on psychotropic berries and genetic engineering, Random Granddaughter will become rich by learning how to tap into David Rochester’s dreams and turn them into dreamsicles, thereby making them both rich. She will also invent the everlasting kitten, thereby making them both richer and even happier and teaching David how to have fun, though it will be late in his day.

    Invent a flavor and let us know. Send us a DNA sample, so we can make it compatible with you.
