In the year 2062, humanity is spinning out of control as the lines between the living and breathing are becoming crossed with the technologically powered. Rapid scientific development and major breakthroughs in research are commonplace, no longer reason enough to provoke a critique of mankind’s morality and ethos. The first viable human clones have reached adulthood, and genetic modifications have overcome most kinds of cancer. New technological masterstrokes like the impending colonization of Mars are received with equanimity. The human race has grown comfortable in its role as a cue ball of its own urge to revolutionize. Nobody would have thought that this venture into a new world would herald the downfall of the old.
