The Curve

The goal is for you to understand that this is a time travel adventure. An adventure worth your precious seconds. Once you begin to understand we live in one single universe then you could also compare the current time zone to the bottom parallel bar. We can vividly view in our minds what a parallel bar looks like and then you realize you know it consists of two wooden poles :parallel bars. Let’s agree the bottom parallel bar represents the current time zone/universe then lets assume the top bar represents an alternate time zone/universe. What would happen if these two time zones would start to bend inward onto each other. What happens when they collide? That is what we are going to discover.
Anything can occur when the two zones meet. Life can continue to move forward as one combined new world or life for both worlds will travel forward on the alternate’s previous zone. They (the top parallel bar) would actually travel back in time but on the alternates zone (the bottom parallel bar) and begin to move backwards in time (in the alternates time). This of course creates some interesting options.
Five adults (2 couples and 1 single friend) venture out one night which leads to drinks, drugs and discoveries. One by one each of the friends keeps having deja vu. Soon all five adults are enlightened with total recall of what happened actually happened before and they begin to share their stories and discover The Curve is occurring.
The Curve is when both parallel universes take a turn inward towards each other. Life as they know it today will not exist if The Curve is successful in connecting both worlds. Mass confusion everywhere will exist till finally the war is lost. The two separate parallel universes mixing all the different people plus technology is not a good solution. As strange as it seems that a separate parallel universe will exist, the group of friends will do what is ever needed to help create a shift to prevent future doom if the two stay connected. They would rather live knowing an alternate parallel world does exist then be involved with what happened when the collision occurred.
Tension rises when a couple of the friends liked the life that was created when the two parallel universes collided. They liked how their alternate selves were smarter, richer and sexier. They don’t want to be a part of making the change back to regular Pre-Curve time.
The Five friends must use their new combined knowledge to create a second Curve (of the 2 parallel universes). They must work together to change the direction of The Curve away from the current zone. To accomplish this they will have to pull apart the currently combined two universes with their special key.
 Today the parallel universe exists beside them. Secrets and greed, keep the possibility of The Curve occurring again, alive. The future lies with the decisions and key that the 5 friends hold.

Frozen Embryo

I would like to start with assumption that an embryo already exists.  I don’t want to battle about how or why or what caused this embryo to exist.  I want to discus about after the embryo is made what could happen. About what happens to the embryo itself and the future people involved.

There are two paths that I think could be very interesting.  The first one being that men and women will create an embryo upon meeting rather than waiting to decide when they want to have a child. The second path I also think would be interesting to warrant discussion would be someone today creating many embryos with their specifically modified genetic material for the future plan of bringing the embryo to term.

Wouldn’t it be strange to think the custom exists where generally man meets woman and they date, marry and then one day decide if they want to have a child? Well, it does to some.  Some others have varying opinions. But what if in the future a person will decide when they are young and healthy to create an embryo immediately.  That embryo will be meant for use in the future when they are ready to raise a child that they will then use that embryo created with their younger, healthier couple. People do it now but with other intentions.  People who know they will be receiving cancer treatments might create an embryo to use later when the cancer person is healthier.

What if it becomes generally acceptable and normal for a young individual take action and create that embryo before it was necessary or for a valid reason?  What if it was common place today? An example could be for my 17 year old daughter and her also young boyfriend in an early relationship to immediately freeze an embryo? They would freeze that embryo now with today’s younger, hopefully healthy, selves with the possibility they might decide to use that embryo for the creation of life?

It could be the year 2040, when they are 43,  that they would then use that embryo created back in 2015.  Wouldn’t that be a strange way in the future to create life? It is weird to think about what will occur in the future that will seem so normal (like mobile phones today)  but now would seem totally unbelievable.

The second path to discuss is more like a story from a paranormal book. However, it is still a path worth considering as a possibility. Let’s assume that today, someone, somewhere, is freezing embryo’s they created for some future purpose. Almost like a plan someone created from beginning to end taking over decades to complete.

Now imagine a future world where this person decides to develop and create a large population of similar people. This opens a whole black hole of ideas of what that population would be used for. I have no idea what it would be. I’m curious about the possibilities that it would hold for society.

It isn’t like cloning because it is not a whole group of the exact same embryo.  I am talking about common genetic embryos developed into adults all in a similar surrounding. So, just so we are clear: similar NOT a clone. The group of adult people these embryo’s become would be almost too scary to even think about. That type of devious behavior that we would assume it to be could be could also be used for good.

All of these frozen embryo’s lying in wait.  Waiting for someone to decide what to do with them. Will someone use an embryo to create a child that they wish to care and love? Or, will someone with 1,000 willing woman, ready to carry from birth till adulthood, inseminate the next group of…?

These are just two personal ideas.  Now image all the possibilities that exist out there for all the current and future frozen embryo’s to be. I haven’t even thought about the whole stem cell possibilities.  I’m thinking about the ways people could possibly use frozen embryo’s for various reasons that haven’t even been thought about yet.

Or were they?
