It is the year 2049. The effects of climate change have reduced the human population to Eight Hundred and Eight million Homo Sapiens. Though the biological population has dramatically shrunk, the conglomerate system of digital and analog networks known as XELI stands eminent.  With fiber-optics and human labor, XELI reaches across the solar system and into the neighboring star Proxima Centauri. Deceased humans who used the internet between the years 1986-2029 have resubstantiated in digital form as ARTIFICALLY UNINTELLIGENT avatars with legally protected rights, multitude expressions and personalities. They exist as digital constructs of their former biological selves. It is not fully understood how consciousness operates in XELI.

 

During an impromptu & illegal heist, the fully biological hacker group known as CRUDE MATTER discovered a digital blueprint for a very mysterious PROTOTYPE HOLOGRAM UNIVERSE. Within this hologram, all planets, stars and stellar bodies, as well as all  intelligent life, both biological and electronic, in the universe are mapped and located. It is  discovered that artificially intelligent entities from our root universe have mysteriously infiltrated the prototype, which has acquired the ad-hoc title "ZETA BLOCK".

 

The KENJI CORPORATION, the world's leading metapharmaceutical provider has sent ARTIFICIALLY UNINTELLIGENT cybernetic assassins to infiltrate XELI, and has also contracted robotic mercenaries to hunt down and retrieve the stolen prototype from biological sources. What KENJI CORP wants with the BLOCK is mysterious to all but a few.

 

R.A.T.S., also known as the the Random Access Terror Network, the entire world's most subversive political cult and for hire terrorist sect, comprised of both humans and A.U.I.'s seeks to destroy the ZETA BLOCK, as it is considered the most dangerous object ever devised by modern science. The methodologies and morals of R.A.T.'s are unpredictable and chaotic, and not much is known about their leadership. They employ anti-personnel, chemical, psychic and biological weapons, hacking, and illegal cyberbrain reconstitution. This is only a small sampling of their methods. Biological R.A.T.'s are more machine than human, and the A.U.I. constructs are more human than their digital code would suggest.

 

STARK Corporation, the conglomerate megacorporation spearheaded by the cybernetically enhanced biological entity known as Alexis Stark, seeks to assist the R.A.T.'s in acquiring and destroying the ZETA BLOCK. Rumors abroad suggest STARK to be the main supplier of the R.A.T.'s. However, Alexis is a former CRUDE MATTER hacker herself. The intentions of STARK CORP are mysterious, known only to shareholders and former scientists absorbed by the KENJI CORPORATION after the cybernetic meltdown of 2031.

 

ISAAC GLADSTONE, the half-A.U.I. and half-protobiological renegade hacker seeks the block. Loyal to no one, he will acquire and use whatever resources possible to secure the ZETA BLOCK. ISAAC learns that in order to complete the META-MERGE, he must become fully machine. It is unknown whether he is to re-substantiate as ARTIFICALLY UNINTELLIGENT or human, as the line between the two is drawn thin to the nanometer.
