|Leads to||Matter Transmission|
|Secret Project||Clinical Immortality|
|Increases defense against genetic warfare|
Not long after the breakthroughs in Super Tensile Solids and Self-Aware Machines, engineers clamor to research the last major hurdle in physical manipulation—Matter Editation. This technique actually changes the physical structure of individual atoms, altering characteristics like energy states, spin, atomic weight, and the number of protons as though they were entries in a database. This technology is the modern embodiment of the ancient quest to turn lead into gold-transmutation of elements made possible by atomic manipulation.
