Glitches: Prohuman Inc

The Story

Prohuman Inc. introduces the new craze in town, a virtual reality, recreational system created by its intelligent, handsome, dashing founder Ray Raskal and the services the company provides are quickly embraced by potential customers as many sign up to be entertained by the Recreation system.  Due to the vast array of services on offer within Recreation, each user is given the choice to participate in the lifelike, exotic fantasies from the luxury and comfort of their own homes through a virtual reality headset which can read and interact with their neural processes and the service is extremely popular as vast numbers of users quickly sign up and participate in the many delights Recreation has to offer. 

Ray Raskal, the founder provides clients with the ability to travel through virtual realms in various forms and actually allows people to become personified programs, viruses, hero's or even villains as preferred.  Powerful clans which exist within the Recreation framework allow users to become Attackers, Protectors, Enablers, Freelancers or even simply to be a Socialite that has no aggressive agenda at all.  Due to the flexibility of the luxury, recreational services Recreation provides as it leaps out into the commercial world, it attracts immediate interest and consumers respond favourably, anxious to enjoy and explore the flexibility Recreation has to offer and make love, war, enemies or allies through various virtual interactions and activities as Recreation provides them with a virtual form of escapism that they can indulge in, whenever they actually want to.

However much to some client's horror, they rapidly discover that as the lines between reality and virtual reality become more obscure and blurred, not everything in Recreation is as perfect as they originally envisaged it would be.  Once they are plunged more deeply into the realms of this new, experimental technology, they suddenly find themselves faced with horrific, physical side effects as they rapidly begin to realize exactly what their participation in this enchanting, alluring, fantasy recreational facility has actually induced and the very deadly price that they may now really have to actually pay which certainly wasn't mentioned along with the sign up fees.  A deadly race against time is then invoked as they attempt to save their own lives and protect each other from the deadly ramifications of their participation in Recreation and the deadly technology which is now actually attempting to devour their very real, physical bodies.

There is always a price to pay for progress....Written By Jill Thrussell.

Prohuman Inc. Quotes

Everyone in the room fell silent. Ray Raskal's presence demanded it. Martine's mouth salivated with desire and intrigue. There he stood, electrifyingly handsome, dashing and debonair. Ray Raskal. The founder of Prohuman Inc. ~ Jill Thrussell

Martine's mind played with her thoughts back and forth for a moment. Why was she here? What was she yearning for and lacking? The deep void of unsettled desires stirred with her and rippled over her body with tingling uncertainty. Could Prohuman Inc or perhaps even Ray Raskal fulfill them? ~ Jill Thrussell

Martine was intrigued by the propensity and intricacies of activities this new artificial social life was offering. The web of possibilities could provide her with an imaginative and creative outlet to her somewhat stagnant social life. She was motivated to participate fully and explore the various types of satisfaction and pleasure it could yield. Almost overnight her social life would be transformed and would now be vibrant, full and colored with experiences and interactions that provided satisfaction and enjoyment. Excitement filled her every pore and caused her body to tingle in anticipation. ~ Jill Thrussell

There had been casualties along the route to survival but Prohuman had survived and that was the paramount objective. Everything else including client life's was subservient to this agenda from Ray Raskal's perspective. Prohuman lived and breathed and he would continue to sacrifice whatever was required to ensure Prohuman fulfilled its potential and grew into the corporate dominating force he'd envisaged it would be at the time of its inception. ~ Jill Thrussell

Ray Raskal had silenced the voices and existence of those who could obstruct and oppose him. Those who could slaughter Prohuman and all he'd achieved. Those who threatened his very own existence and freedom. Prohuman had survived the carnage of his mistakes, failures and the deadly implications his errors had caused.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The temptation was almost overpowering as she desired to once more embody her own persona. The youthful, vibrant female she had been not this decaying, aging carcass she'd become. She had to make a choice should she succumb and enjoy the artificial manifestation of the reality she had been living in and escape this torturous body she now resided in or continue to face and exist in the reality she'd become. Vanity urged her to escape if only for a moment, though the price of doing so she knew only too well would be the acceleration of the aging process.  The lure of the escape to the reality beyond this painful reality she now inhabited. The reality of what once was which still should be, versus the reality of what now was. She yearned to exist as she should, before she'd embarked on this technology craze and jaunt with Ray Raskal's creation, she could no longer resist the urge. Now though the reality of who she was only existed inside Prohuman and to enjoy the reality she was entitled to she knew she had to access the system once more. ~ Jill Thrussell
