Excerpt of holographic party / teleconference, where Dr. K. meets his neighbors on the private island.
“Danka. My original wartime research area was biological
warfare. But when you discover what is harmful to the human body,
you also learn the opposite. It is the duality of nature. When we
established ourselves here, I put what I had learned to work
improving the health and extending the life of us all.”
Dr. Kantos dropped his fixation on the technical wizardry of the
holographic imaging system he was standing in the middle of and
jumped into conversation with Dr. Wagner. In turn the others also
became the targets of his rabid curiosity. They were impressed by the
breadth of his knowledge, as they answered his questions. From
nurturing the body with hydroponically grown foods, aquaculture
and select herbs, to technological areas of power generation and
storage the discussion ranged. The little group encircled him as they
talked on and on.
