And I like the cat. Remiunds me of something We've got something like that here!
As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent.
But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. The desirability of patenting the process requires the corporation to handle related matters under a cloak of secrecy, but somewhere someone has spilled the beans; competitors will do anything for the magic recipe, especially if this can be done before the patent is filed in the US Patent Office.

They will do anything, including bribery, extortion, and murder, to get the information out of the pharmaceuticals lab before the process is made public.

When the friendly face of the sun Means a brand new day has begun It will put a smile upon your face When you feel its happy embrace. When the wind blows hard upon your back It can guide you down the right track And the rain that gets into your eyes Helps you see the truth if you try. Cos we all want someone to need us We all want someone to lead us We all want someone to feed us the truth In this world of a million tomorrows.
