Alister Darwin, a physics professor, who made a time machine and traveled into the future now has a family with a female android he befriended. He desperately tries to seek answers to events that perplex him.
Aesa, the female android gives birth to a healthy baby boy with an IQ of 4,000, comparatively much higher than that of his father, Darwin, whose IQ is at 120. The child is named David after Darwin's grandfather.
"Something strange has been occurring to my beloved Aesa, she is changing, becoming more human. I can't explain it, but I must find out why," writes Darwin in his journal.
Darwin's scientific curiosity leads him to find Aesa's birth place, the factory where she was produced. He believes the answer to her condition can be found in her beginnings. Aesa, herself doesn't understand the metamorphoses that's changing her body and she's a bit frightened.
"Aesa do you remember where you were born, the place you escaped from, can you take us there?" says Darwin.
"Yes, Alister, I know how get to there, it's three miles from our location," replied Aesa.
After arriving at the location, one day later, Darwin is surprised to discover that it was a military facility designed for scientific experiments. He is unable to understand the ancient language on digital disks, so he asks, Aesa, to translate the data.
"This facilty designs Mobile Breeding Incubators for solider trained to colonize other worlds. The MBI androids are superior to human females and are critical to the survival of a human colony on an alien world. They accelerate the evolution of their unborn human children to adapt them to the alien enviroment.
The MBI androids are designed to absorb the DNA code of their human mating partners, so they can alter their own appearance to resemble the human characteristics of their human mates," translates Aesa, from an instruction manual.
It's a metamorphoses similar to that of a butterfly that goes from a larva stage to a fully formed butterfly in all it's beauty.
Aesa realizes, at that moment, that she is also an MBI unit and she was programmed to fall in love with a male human such as Alister Darwin. Darwin, quickly holds her hands to reassure her after noticing her bewildered expression, she then hugs Darwin, telling him that she will always love him.
Upon further inspection of the facility they find an old military computer.
"Alister, we must ask the computer for answers, it's very logical and helpful," exclaims Aesa.
Darwin activates the computer by manually opening a solar panel compartment.
The computer tells them about an ancient race of people called Lumen who constructed the abandoned cities. The Lumen civilization was destroyed by civil war and by the marauding attacks of the Morlock's and Eloi's who are a subhuman race of creatures that live in the outskirts of the once great cities.
"Computer, what happened to the ancient Lumen race, did they become extinct?" asks Aesa.
"95% of the Lumen perished in the great wars, but 5% of the most intelligent Lumen scientist went underground to hide from the apocalypse. Underground, they created a civilization that I estimate at this moment to be 125 million individuals," replied the computer.
"Aesa, we must travel underground to speak to them, they have advanced knowledge they will share with us," says Darwin.
It's 60% of earth's future based on Darwinian Logic- Species division, technological advances, Mammalian Compatibility, and Evolving Intelligence.
