Episode One: Where History Can Be Hacked – From the novel: The Survival Guide For The One Percent
Episode One frames the how, and where everything begins to occur. The development of an ultra wealthy One Percent began, because a combined NASA/NOAA program enlightens a limited number of people to a new twist in the laws of physics.
Computer programmers, under the employ of the United States government, identify a method to provide their ancestors with information related to the coming industrial revolution.
Their goal was to build the wealth of their ancestors, so that, by their own time, their families would have become financial dynasties. Their plan succeeds, save for certain unreasonable assumptions.
They ignored that power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The era of the One Percent begins, but the descendants of those that had benefited will not inherit wealth. In fact, those that benefited are determined to not be identified as frauds.
The subsequent episodes of the novel are about the chase of those involved, their attempts to retain the new history they created, and their attempts to escape their well deserved payback. It’s a list, and a method of how the war we seem to be witnessing, between most of the seriously wealthy, came to begin.
A brief description of Episode One: Where History Can Be Hacked A NASA, and NOAA sponsored project goes awry, and inadvertently creates a revised history of the world.
The original goal of the experiment was sold as a benign investigation into the history of climate changes. Instead, corrupt intelligence officers overseeing the project had covertly ordered select programmers to supply their ancestors with the knowledge of how to profit financially, during the era of the industrial revolution.
The ancestors of these corrupt intelligence officers, as well as those of their programers, became the financial titans of that era. Over subsequent generations, their wealth escalated to a point where they became known as the One Percent. Project managers retained a knowledge of the programmers previous stations in life, and became suspicious their instantaneous wealth might have been created by the project.
Project managers, and programmers fought to preserve their preferred histories. Continuous attempts to reshape the past created a sequence of rapidly altered histories. Within only days of repeated revisions to history, little was left of the project’s facility, or the programmers computer terminals.
The product of their battling was a new unrecognizable history. A new non-industrial society had replaced all previous versions of history. The Medieval period in Europe remained for centuries. The Renaissance, and the Age of Discovery never took place. Instead, it evolved into a force of law governed through Medieval, and Papal Inquisitions.
