You, Zelda, want to talk to me about freaks and other entities. I say why have you chosen me? You say you know I am a sybarite and have some influence in the various Worlds! You say the future belongs to freaks with freak bodies and freak minds. I say most people are not in favor of such a reality. Most modern people try to be open-minded, but only go so far. And consider freaks to be a disgrace to humanity. Sure some crazy scientists have dumped sea freaks into the melted oceans of Europa, Triton and even Earth’s oceans. And some have thrived, but you can’t deny there are many bounty hunters searching for freaks to kill and are offered cash for killing their leaders. And the governments of the States where freaks exist mostly figure freaks are an anathema.
You say you object to calling these imaginative people, “Freaks.” And you call them “Imago-humans.” And you say they use MRT (Mind Reading Technology) to communicate and have created many great works of art. Like “Imago-human Universe,” about the coming take over of the settled Worlds by these “people.” And “The Book of Dreams” about their dreams for the future. And “The Triumph of Open Minds,” about how the human youths will be more open-minded and accepting of these creatures and many will try to emulate them. Becoming such an entity is filmed in a positive light. And so on.
I say, personally I am willing to tolerate those who live in altered states of mind and different bodies, but I just don’t want to be like them. I am committed to being human. You say you thought I would be more receptive to all-new minds. I say they seem to think like clever humans or animals, but they are sensitive to being oddities. You say the future belongs to the odd and bizarre in a scenario where the cleverest will triumph. But I say, you haven’t convinced me your people are truly geniuses in their own right.
You say let’s together mind read with imago-humans and learn what geniuses they really are.
I say I am open to that. So, I sampled a few. One was a mermaid who I communicated with MRT with. I asked her don’t you wish you were human? She said she enjoyed the freedom of Earth’s oceans and there were a number of sea grottos and sea gardens where mermen humans gathered. And she communicated with sea creatures, like dolphins, whales, walruses and so on using simple MRT and they were injecting MRT locator apps into sea animals in the tens of millions. And the sea creatures built up their brain with MRT communication with one another. She told me they needed to get the sea creatures to do MRT from a young age for maximum effect.
I also met an “Alien human” who looked really different from humans and had a tiny nose and pointed chin and hairless. She said she was tired of loving fellow Aliens and wanted to try and love a human. I told her I didn’t consider her to be attractive and I read her mind and found she was just an ordinary intellect.
Then I met a genius octopus who mind-read, she could use her eight arms to great effect and was making a movie about genius sea life. She simply copied experiences with brilliant sea life and then edited and made them into films. I have to admit her films were interesting. The advanced sea life often thought together, young or old, as one or were often rugged one individual independent creatures. But most of them lived for the good of their group. And though many humans looked down on them, most of them wanted to make friends and part with humans. The sea creatures all had drugs which they took to give them pleasures.
Then I met a tiger man who said he represented tigers and tiger men all over Earth. He said he just wanted humans to respect tigers and not consider them to be freaks. And all tiger men ate stem cell meats and were no longer predators and instead were lovable creatures. And many of them wanted to be pets for humans and live a luxurious life.
And then I met a creature with five heads, but only one body. He/she was constantly at war with itself. But it said it was a healthy debate. And this creature said, five heads are far better than one and was capable of debating every modern issue effectively, as each head was a genius. And it said it was a model for future humans. I honestly didn’t know what to think about this creature but apparently it was breeding with others exponentially.
And I asked you, Zelda, what kind of creature are you? And you said you had a brain that was designed for maximum pleasure. You say you always feel great no matter what. And never feel depressed or sad. But you consider yourself to be fully human. I say many modern freaks pass for normal these days and you never know when you will meet a dangerous monster in a human body. Some bio-engineering scientists are pure evil and we have to clamp down on them before the situation gets out of control. All scientists should be vetted with MRT when they are in their youth and again every five years. All this crap about freedom is just freedom to do ill.
And you say, but most scientists are benign, and more and more bioengineers are wildly creative with the new human species they are designing. It looks like the future of humanity will be multiple species, you say. Variety is good, you emphasize. I say, it is a reality that few predicted, but nevertheless appears to be the future now.
And you say everyone is a freak at heart in this World of strangers. I say but with MRT people are less strange to one another, but you are right that many feel they don’t fit in and are different from others. But I think that is OK.
I say but freaks are taking over human society at an alarming rate. And take over many normal humans with hypnosis. And in the seas, they are breeding like crazy. I agree with you that one day many will be human-looking but will have a freakish mind. However, most will appear like freaks. Some will say the future will be a fantasy World, others will call it a giant freak show.
Anyway, I feel enlightened after meeting you and some of your imago-men. It makes me feel better about the future. Perhaps everyone should take a course in imago-men studies to calm the World down. You say you wish me peace and prosperity and I wish the same to you. Who knows, perhaps one day I will join the imago-men! But now is the time to end this dream and you will disappear. You say you want to live and experience the imago-men. I’m sorry, but that’s how it goes.
