    From Wildcat's personal cargo

    A Nano-Personhood Love story (short sci-fi)
    Their love was immortal, their union absolute
    He was rich; she just had an accident, devastating
    Medical technology offered a breakthrough solution
    He was open minded, she was unconscious
    He decided for her lawfully, he signed the documents
    Nanobots were introduced into her bloodstream
    He was perplexed, watching her body (trying to)rebuild itself
    He wasn’t young anymore, neither was she.
    The bots reached her neo-cortex, she reached across the divide




    He was asleep near the nano-rejuv incubator
    She accessed across the abyss of meat space
    A swarm of identity laden Nanobots took shape
    Inside him, she was rearranging his organs
    To meet her new needs

    She didn’t wish to disturb him, she felt only warmth
    He woke up, and the feeling of loneliness disappeared

    They were two
    Now they are one

    The person, Daniel Marianne Wolf Hunt was thus proclaimed to be the first double person in existence, so as we said before:
    Their love was immortal, their union absolute.

    Intimately builds on you cutting through stratified layers of the known to open to one of the possibilities. The beauty of intelligence plays in thinking the unthinkable, opening a new space, taking us there, making it feel and probably become real. thanks. an epiphany evoking deeper possibilities...
