Imagine a world where your place in society is not determined by your race, your familys wealth, or your ambition. Instead, your place in society is determined at birth by your intelligence. In 2284 A.D., such a world was made possible by the IQ machine, which could measure human intelligence with an error of three IQ points. Jack Silok, a senior genetic engineer working for the Cellwork Corporation, lived in such a world. In this world, human intelligence could be measured but not enhanced. All the genetic works seemed to have failed miserably. Being a geneticist, he found himself puzzled by this very problem, which he had been trying to solve all his life. All the genetic engineering works, which he had performed for the Cellwork Corporation, were compartmentalized and kept a secret from all its employees. His job was to make genetic constructs and pass them on to the next department, where the genetic constructs were supposedly used to make super-intelligent human beings. However, he had no proof that any of his genetic works had ever succeeded. In his relentless search for the truth, he was prepared to delve deep into the underworld controlled by the One Human Society. But was he ready for what awaited him?
