During the earliest stages of research, those interested in the effects of XM referred to it as ‘the Shaper Mind Virus.’
Later, it was uncovered that the XM contained an ordered data pattern that could interface with the brain. Sometimes, however, intuition leads you to the right place first…
I can’t help but wonder — how did our ability to think at the level we do evolve in the first place… did XM and the “Shaper Mind Virus” play a role? I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
