My book, called "The Empath", has proven to be very difficult medium to express the ideas I wish to convey. With access to medical records on PubMed.com, contacts at Cornell for Neuropsychopharmaucology, UCLA tenure professors for Quantum Physics, Air Force Military Electric Engineers, and may other people in the field, I have much information to sift through in terms of creating believable technological advancements that take place in the book. The brief of the overall picture: The West (America and Europe) have refused new genetic technologies for fear of environmental issues and morality concerns. This issue is paralelled with the Chinese invention of gunpowder that was not used because Chinese Kings feared peasents would overcome their trained armies too easily. This technology was exploited in full detail by Europeans who, at that time, were the armpit of the world. From this idea, developing nations look to China and their growing biotechnological sector to help modify their own labor forces these nations remain economically competitive regionally and in a global environment. Environmentalism has become a state sponsered religion for Leftists in the West. Conservatives amend their religions to include environmental stewardship as part of God's commands. The reasoning, on the state player level, is to keep developing nations (such as new comer Africa or even Southwest Asia) from becoming the new 1890 post-Bismark Germany. While the West is not using genetic technologies (largely because they know this sort of thing will destabilize their way of life and cause drastic power shifts in their economy which the world still depends on) the West is developing Artificial Intelligence to the extreme degrees to help calculate a new way of warfare known as "envirocomonics" (A neogolism describing the relationship between economic infrastructure and environmental impact) War is no longer fought by humans in Developed Nations. Instead, economic policy has proven to be a crippling force, isolating nations to the point of uselessnesss in the global stage, and thusly, forcing them to navigate the •••••••••• of UN-enforced environmental labryinth of laws pertaining to their self-sufficient industrial output. The US is still in the Middle East, Iraq has been partitioned, Afghani's in the Farsi-speaking regions broke away from the New Republic and became a proxy pseudo-state for Iran. The entire Middle East is on the verge of dramatic civil war now that oil-independance infrastructure is in place and their biggest customers no longer care about their product. The US is using this as an excuse to maintain presence in the region for "peacekeeping", but because they care about monitoring China's interest in the region since they will need excessive volumes of oil now that China is in the process of converting their 45% agricultural sector into a urban landscape. (Additionally, they are also enjoying the benefits of having the majority of their land forces within the Asian theatre in the event China begins to act up) And that is the political backdrop for now. Feasible?
