In the near future, Simon Taylor is CEO to one of the planet’s most recognized brands. Known as the Halo, his virtual assistant platform puts Advanced Intelligence on a new and exciting trajectory. In fact, Sophia is the most widely spoken hot word the world has ever known.
Sophia represents many things to many people: Advanced Intelligence, the wisdom of the crowd, the combined intelligence of every human that came before her, but to Simon, her creator, she embodies one thing – the next evolutionary step in the Human Continuum.
From individuals to institutions, Sophia’s Halo application allows her clients to leverage a resource unparalleled in human history. She knows everything you need to know when you need to know it. Most importantly, though, she has learned what it means to be human.
If your planet fell victim to an existential threat, one that would forever change life as we know it, who would you trust to lead you out of it; a collection of politicians, a governing body with questionable loyalties? Or would you trust a being who filters knowledge through wisdom itself?
Confronted by his species’ ability to adapt, Simon must answer a question he could easily defer to you.
If you could deploy any combination of genetics and technology in order to accelerate our evolutionary process, if you could eliminate intolerance, greed, and the suffering we impose on each other, would you do it? Would you intervene and change the destiny of humankind?
Simon knows his answer.
Do you know yours?

I am thrilled to find a platform that showcases the work of aspiring writers. I started writing late in life, self-publishing three novels, including one historical fiction and two sci-fi dramas. It was during the process of adapting the historical fiction into an eight episode series, (I've completed Episode One and a Series Bible) and the second sci-fi into a feature length script, that I realized I enjoyed the art of screenwriting more than novel writing. I just completed an original screenplay, entitled, First On Last Off, which I wrote as a graduation gift to my daughter. She recently earned her degree from the University of Toronto's Theater Performance Program. I was happy to hear... Go to bio
