FM-2030 was the father of Transhumanism. In the 60’s and 70’s, he predicted tele-banking, gene therapy, and 3D printing; a vision of a 'post-human” world of abundance. He believed that no human problem was insurmountable. In 1999, FM was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and per his wishes he was cryonically frozen. Johnny Boston was 10 years old when he first met FM. After FM’s suspension, Johnny never expected to see his friend again, but an unexpected call places FM’s future in Johnny’s hands. Scientists give Johnny a deep look at the ethical ramifications of a world of immortality; what will it mean to be human when no one dies? The countdown has begun. Are you ready?
