Chapter 4 of Corruption - Book 2 of the Evolution series is being posted today. I sincerely hope that you enjoy it. It is a cliff hanger, but that happens at the end of chapters for books. My apologies in advance for any that gets upset about the cliff hanger.

This chapter is more about scientific advantages the alien brought to the group in the form of advanced nanobots. I had some pushback on this chapter because the nanobots seemed to much like magic. Some of you may have noticed in other stories of mine, that I'm not afraid to ask a reader to take a leap of imagination. The existence if ethereal aliens is a large leap of imagination. The things that I ask readers to believe about nanobots is also a leap of imagination, but a very small leap.

'Nanobot micromotors deliver medical payload in living creature for the first time' is the title of an article on WWW.Gizmag.com

Every day, one of the first things I do, is look at reports of recent discoveries and scientific accomplishments. The accomplishments of mankind is pretty impressive, especially considering we were struggling with getting out of the horse and buggy stage a hundred years ago. I'm impressed at what men are accomplishing today, but I also try to picture what each discovery will lead to in 20, 50, or 100 years. The article above is only one reference that led to the ideas in this chapter. What would happen if outside knowledge allowed men to skip 50 or 100 years of development of a technology discovery made today?

Enjoy the read. Chapter 5 will be posted next Friday.
