    "Child of Man" - Television Series - coming soon

     

    Genre: Science Fiction / Fantasy / Spiritual Drama

    Logline: The first non-biological being exceeds the expectations of scientific research teams after the discovery that Humanoid has connected with a Spiritual Source of unlimited power.

     

    Story:  

    After a tragic accidental death, a 5 year old Human child's brain is donated for scientific research. The child's brain is integrated successfully at the Advanced Intelligence Systems Corporation brain project. Subsequently, micro-memory modules and the most advanced neuron-synaptic chip is engineered at Advanced Intelligence Systems (A.I.S.) in California. The technological world of possibilities explodes. The chips successfully replicate billions of human neurotransmitters and then accelerate the neurosynaptic response into trillions per second.

     

    The life memories of the donated child's brain transfers 5 years of life outside the womb. Three additional months of the child's early creation during the nine month pregnancy is also transferred. The memories of the first non-biological being came from a five year old child named Christopher. These complex spiritual memories completely shock Behavioral Psychiatrists, Neurosurgeons and Research Scientists. Behavioral programming becomes useless when Humanoid's daily practice of prayer and meditation becomes an "act of self will."

     

    A recorded "miracle event" at the research laboratory completely rattles the elite Physicians and Research Scientists. A daughter of one of the top 12 scientists is healed of a genetic form of deafness. A mentoring Angelic Being teaches Humanoid the unlimited power of unconditional love. Humanoid's connection to spiritual light energy becomes a healing gift of love.

     

    The secret development of an unstoppable, deadly and dominant Humanoid Soldier was significantly more profitable. The A.I.S. Corporation plans to create an intelligent killing machine would remain secretly disguised. Under the illusion of National Security, building powerful Humanoid Soldiers became the acceptable military strategy. Unlike the loss of a human soldier, each Humanoid Soldier could fight in any theater of warfare, be destroyed and rebuilt. Human casualties in ground, air and sea warfare would be minimized to such levels that every military force in the world would submit to this new military power...or would it?

     

    Reliving - 2008 Screenplay / Spiritual Drama
