Chill Out (A Digital Short) I stared at the 12cc syringe. A sliver of late afternoon sunlight from the window of the penthouse office glinted through its clear fluid and formed a prism of light on Dr. Powers' desk.
"You're kidding, right?" I looked first at Powers than at Mother. "The 'nano-something-or-others' are inside there and they're supposed to filter out all the over-stimulation my nervous system is absorbing from my environment. So with one simple shot, I'll be cured of this terrible behavior. Is that what you're saying?"
"Well, you may be over simplifying things a bit," Dr. Powers said. He turned the syringe in his hand, gazing at it admiringly. "But yes, essentially that's it. The five different nano-agents will migrate to the synaptic junctions of your five senses. Through them we will be able to govern the input your brain will receive. It's why we call it the Neuro-sensory Governor."
But I don't want my senses to be governed, my mind screamed. Panicking, I turned to Mother. "This really isn't necessary, Mother. I know you haven't cared for some of my art lately . . ."
