The Mind

“THE MIND”

A Post Apocalyptic Tale – by DarkJade

Prologue;

NEW YORK CITY, THE YEAR 2032

TRANTON MEDICAL INSTITUTE OF AUGMENTATION TECHNOLOGY

A man in a Lab Coat, and scraggly hair, walks besides a very well dressed, slender man. This man has a Knowing Smirk on his face, accompanying a sharp blond goatee.

“You know, you’re the only one whose ever asked for a Mind Amplification…” spoke the Lab Tech Nervously.

“Indeed” the goteed man dismissively replied.

“Oh yes… It seems that most choose the Longevity Extension” the Lab Tech continued.

“Mmm, hmm” the bearded man replied once again unenthusiastically, hoping that they might reach the Procedure Room soon.

“Well, you know, it allows you to live up to 250 years of age…” the Lab Tech insisted, seeming hard set to push the bearded man about his decision.

“Yes I am aware of the procedure” the man now seemed to be getting annoyed.

“Well I… Oh never mind” the Lab Tech finally gave up.

“No, go ahead and ask, you’ve gone on this long…” replied the man.

“Well it’s just… Why would you spend 5 Million Dollars to Amplify your Mind, when 2.5 Million will extend your life for another 200 years or so? Especially as you are already renowned to be the most intelligent man on the planet… It just doesn’t make sense that’s all…” he concluded.

The two finally reached the Procedure Room, and the Bearded man turned and spoke once more to the Lab Tech before entering the room

“Perhaps after I amplify my mind, I’ll realize the error I’m now making” with this he gave a devious grin, and enters the room.

53 YEARS LATER

FAIRBANKS ALASKA, THE YEAR 2075

ABRAHAM BENDO TOWER

Inside the Living Room of a Comfortable Highrise Apartment Building, sits Abraham Bendo, aka The Mind, the same man that entered the Mind Amplification Procedure some 53 years ago… He has not aged in the least.

He sits with a knowing grin on his face, smoking a long cigarette.

NEXT TIME… WHO IS THE MIND?
