Scope of Practice
Clients for the services of IMID may present from any circumstance and/or location, though it is our experience that direct communication is more effective, and that regular updates and meetings are necessary to become fully immersed in a clients project with what s/he intends and/or does not intend. While this is possible for paid projects, much of the Virtual Service is dedicated to the health and vitality of our community at large, so it is not always possible to be focused on an individual problem.
Translating the benefits of our work to the next generation by normal reproductive means with characteristics sought out by the wealthy few, positions our industry to avoid the endless need to write and rewrite genetic information for ourselves and others, and prevents treating human beings as either products or commodities. We hope to provide an evolutionary adaptation, rather than an isolated incident of correction or improvement. [i]
The most sincere pursuit of radical solutions is most likely be found within the community of those facing terminal illness and their loved ones, or families seeking solutions out of desperation. There are those among us in hospice who would rather survive with a focus on useful applications of genetic engineering rather than cope with the exploitation of the pharmaceutical industry.
If you've picked up and used the tools I refer to in Epigenesis (with summary here), and seen some examples of the practical results to expect from these disciplines, you already have a better understanding of how difficult it is to be motivated by want, or feelings of inadequacy. I've discussed these concerns at Transpositions and Retrospectives. One of my primary objectives is to avoid the kind of confusion that may occur if your wife or girlfriend decides to dump you because you got what you wanted.
The reality of this technology is that it can, and already is being driven by our will to do so, and that stopping the implementation of our will is not likely when the mechanism of action is an unstoppable machine. What we really need is a higher awareness of our will and intentions at this level, to be sure that when we set out to get what we think we want, we aren't disappointed, or damaged by the result.
Imagine living with a headset that tweeted every thought you have all day. Are you ready to live with the consequences of that kind of convenience? We aren't far from it now! Perhaps the only obstacle to that kind of opportunity is privacy and personal liability protection under the law. I believe the technology for these opportunities exist in MRI machines and elsewhere, but have not been harnessed for personal use because we aren't prepared for the consequences of our undisciplined minds.
At the University of Minnesota Biotechnology Research and Development, EEG is used to control a computer display with nothing but a base line recording of intention, and real time monitoring of brain signals that result from our intention. Its not difficult to imagine an MRI recognizing conceptual language we use as words and pictures, and printing them to a machine, or even the Internet. Brain activity is a common language in nature, and can be interpreted from quite a distance, so harnessing it for practical hands free use is not far off!
Flying a helicopter is a difficult task, but if you program the control of air speed and direction, just the intention to go in one direction or another, and variations of the intensity to do so will take care of the rest!

An Unfailing Practice
The human genome and our own particular adaptation is a global resource so common to each of us, that motivation for progress and positive change drives our ambition naturally. It remains for us to take advantage of the diversity we have access to more effectively. Because it is a physical resource not likely to be nationalized, or exhausted like natural resources found on the earth, or in the sea, it is not confined by national boundaries or limit of supply. The Uruguay Round of the GATT agreements (circa 1996) allows for the international exchange of Intellectual Property across borders, which provides room for genetic patents. The more probable threat to opportunity and access comes from gated and financially entitled communities....but the real value of our opportunity is actually found within our diversity, so excluding populations is disadvantageous.[ii]
IMID does not intend to become a self-perpetuating machination, but rather a useful tool for society and individuals to evolve and progress, fulfilling our own potential and adaptation for the greatest good by continuing to adapt to our environment in symbiosis with plants, and animals in our environment.
Human behavior and reproduction are driven by traits that optimally support life to begin with. To try to duplicate that aspect of evolution would be redundant. It is more relevant to focus on cost-effective corrections to aberrations in individuals and society that result from the toxic threats we can become, by establishing ourselves with what we've already learned and confirmed, and passing it on to our children as a birthright, or adaptation within the world and themselves. However bio-mechanical these solutions may become, cloud delivery of our adaptations will continue to serve as a persistent remedy extending, and improving our lives, and the quality of life.
