: "Our destiny is not doom. Our destiny is to make things better."
"They are at least solid scientists. Their obsession withmachinery is taking them down a false path, however. Ascension is onlyavailable to the living."
New World Order
"As our leader, they do a passable job, leaving us to dowhat we do best. Never trust them, though.
"These businessmen can be extremely useful, but short- sighted.Our brief foray into the drug world makes it clear they are not exploiting the full potential of their markets."
"We do not claim to understand their obsession with space, but have no problem with it, either. Atleast they occasionally return with interesting new specimens."
: The Organism is the fundamental unit of Society and Reality as we understand it. TheOrganism works in a predictable and controllable manner. The Organism controls Reality, we control theOrganism in order to create a Better Reality.
. By striving to understand the Organism in a mechanistic manner we can develop methods to controlit. Biology is most strongly linked to the Sphere of Life, but can be used to influence many other aspects ofReality also. It is not straightforward to assign a "sphere" to each Research Field but approximations arepresented below. Note that we follow the General Technomancy Paradigm on all Science and respect the otherConventions superior knowledge in other Spheres, though our use of those spheres are often very different tothose other Conventions.
Correspondence: Microspcopy, Communications.
. This Sphere is not a fundamental part of theProgenitor Paradigm, but the Genegineers often use Correspondence to investigate Organisms at themicroscopic and molecular level. (The electron microscope uses forces and correspondence). They alsouse the Technology and of other Conventions, in day to day communications. (Cellular phones,computer networks, private jets, surveillance vans etc.).
Entropy: Senescence (Cell Biology)
. The organism breaks down. By striving to understand the cellularmechanisms involved we can prevent or manipulate the senescence of the organism or individual cellswithin the Organism as we see fit.
. Not an area that Progenitors spend much time studying, some collaborative work canhappen with Iteration X e.g. neural interfaces, neural networks, etc. Iteration X can also help with themanufacture of equipment used in Biological Research.
