Abstract:

It is the year 2057 and John Cunningham's generation is the last of its kind. He is a Homo sapiens, a member of the old race. Genetic engineers have learned to create a new version of humankind: highly intelligent, unemotional, non-violent, rational beings. A Constitutional amendment safeguarded the rights of these engineered offspring to their full potential. Cunningham's children are more intelligent than he, and his wife has lost herself in the entertainments and drugs allotted to the "old people" waiting for extinction. How does one pass the time while waiting for extinction?
