The Future Man

A story from the dark netizen that seems all too applicable to today. Enjoy!

The Dark Netizen

He was the next step in evolution.

Designed by the smartest minds in the world, he was the prototype for the new human. Flesh was married to machine, and The Future Man was born. Created to be perfect in every way, all human shortfalls were covered up by the machine part. The cybernetic enhancements made him stronger, smarter, faster, in short better than his fellow men. A.D.A.M. was perfection incarnate.

Or so he was supposed to be. In some time, his human personality began overpowering his logical machine side. Narcissism set in, giving rise to a superiority complex. Unchecked, it gradually grew into a hatred for the weak human race. A.D.A.M. had to be put down. The programme was shelved. The scientists had been drastically wrong at their calculations.

Humans were not ready to evolve…

    • I do too, Noelle. And the question is can we handle it? Will humans use our enhancements for a better life or for ruthless destruction? Thanks so much for the visit. Happy Writing!

    This was interesting, normally these stories start by machines taking over humans. You reversed it, I thought that was clever. The message was also clever. Nice read.
