A story spanning over sixty years. Time is fluid, running from the present, to memory, and back again, to form a tale taken from the minds of three protagonists.

Sections

 

The State of Eden.

A world that was once our world. A State where standardized testing and the Citizen Evaluation Exam governs the lives of the masses, and there is sharp delineation between those who are gifted in science and mathematics and the rest of the populace, between Camps and Palaces, between rich and poor. Welcome to a world where genetically engineered humans compete with all others in a quest for intellectual dominance. Welcome to a State where a single reminder of the past can get you killed.

Welcome to the rule of law without morality that shudders upon the brink of revolution.

Welcome to Eden.
