I think, and my thoughts cross the barrier into the synapses of the

machine, just as the good doctor intended. But what I cannot shake,
and what hints at things to come, is that thoughts cross back. In my
dreams, the sensibility of the machine invades the periphery of my
consciousness: dark, rigid, cold, alien. Evolution is at work here,
but just what is evolving remains to be seen.

The insatiable drive for efficiency spawned by Industrial Automation drives the development of Neural Grafting. This new technology, based on Secrets of the Human Brain, allows attachment of digital circuitry directly to the neural cortex. With these implants, individuals willing to undergo Neural Grafting can enhance many aspects of their physical being, from heightened senses to faster reaction times.


As soon as you discover Neural Grafting, your units can have two special abilities. Experiment in the unit design screen ('u').
