The story is a brain child of the above author and it is pure fiction..


Here I sit in my parlor, in my three bedroom flat looking plainly at my wife’s picture and my wife sitting before me, they are two distinct individuals in heart but the same in appearance. You are confused right? Don’t be, I am really dejected and feel like just ending all of this right now. I think I am going to commit suicide in the next few hours rather than to continue living this kind of life but before doing that I believe the whole world should know about my invention or should I say our invention, because it was something I and my father worked on, which is why I decided to put this into writing, if you are reading this I am dead..


Before I confuse you with a lot of things, let me tell you about myself, My name is Godfrey Josh, a 32year old man, I am a Professor of Neuroscience, my mother Hannah Josh was an Optician before she passed on to the yonder in 2000 due to some sickness we are yet to trace, my father Simon Josh, a genius, he has the brain, he is a professor of Robotical Sturdy, little wonder while I followed their line and also dive into science.

How it all began, I lost my wife four years ago to a road accident, she was coming with our two year old daughter, as I heard, the driver was driving so fast than the car could go in an urge to carry the next passenger which is typical of drivers here in Bsamba Island, unknown to him there was a pit on the bridge they were traveling on, he crashed into the pit and they fell into the water by the side of the bridge and that was it, they all drown, it was a tragic loss for me, as I had sleepless night, I even had hallucinations seeing them beside me, I was going crazy, it was so bad that I was retrenched from my duty at Winminds Organization when they noticed I was losing concentration, after losing my job I fell to drinking, I drank anything and everything as long as it took away the sorrow in my ached heart but it was always short lived and immediately it wears out I fall back on the bottle again the and process is followed again. There was this night I was dead drunk and the thought of committing suicide came to me at least I should free myself of this sorrow, I was about grasping for what would have been my last breath when my father walked in, he was shocked as he quickly ran towards me to untie me, he knew my predicament..

The following day on the 26th February 2004, we sat down to converse on a high profile project, a project that was hard for an average human being to comprehend, only few people are a privy to this sensitive project, I, my dad and twenty other people on the whole planet were the only ones would knew about it all, I was dragged into it due to my knowledge in neuroscience, we were working in conjunction with the World Health Organization(WHO) an arm of the United Nations Organization. The project was code named “Operation Robotical 19”, this project received a lot of financial sponsorship from the United Nations, the purpose of this project was that by 2019 we would have been able to clone that is create a replica example of people into separate entity, that is no one will really die but will continue to exist in another form, what was needed was a prototype of the human brain which would then be transcribe into a computer language which we then be loaded into a robot, we created a machine to scan the human brain, it will scan everything one had done from child birth to the point of death, the scanning machine was named Maximum Scany, the major set back of this scanner was that it could only scan the brain of an individual who is about to die or that of a fresh corpse, although we only experimented using animals. Later on the UNO directed that the project should be put on hold due to dearth of fund, the project was almost getting to completion stage, immediately it was halted we all went our separate ways with an oath of not saying out anything about it to the public.
