A fringe scientist creates single cell mitosis on a human scale... but which copy receives his soul?
Mitosis: A fringe scientist has created a way for a person to split into two separate human beings. He shares this knowledge with only his wife. He plans to have her assist him as he becomes the first guinea pig, a step he desires to take in order to make a large reveal to the scientific community that has shunned him.
This plan, and subsequent action, results in not only moral and ethical debate with her, but flashbacks and nightmares that she cannot shake. Her amnesia of a car crash and coma from years earlier leave room to question her own past, and even birth. Her husband's background and intentions are not what they appear to be, and the reveal leaves her with a shocking decision.
Beneath the shock and horror of these fringe experiments are underlying questions of humanity: Which body receives the original soul, if at all? Can man-made life be human? When science cures aging will quality of life increase, or merely destroy the meaning of life for all of humanity?
This story dives further into these questions, while twisting and entertaining the audience.
