The capabilities of the human mind are limitless when sixteen seconds becomes the distance between a thought and a revolution.

Give your thoughts for your life.
The NID, Neurological Impulse Device, ended the uprising. The mandatory implant allowed only eight seconds of thought. Any longer, and the results were devastating. Without free thought, progress and compassion withered, leaving nothing behind but a nation yet to realize that something about the children was changing, darkening; devolving. War was fast to follow, and even quicker to end. Without a solution, there was nothing to fight for.

Risk your next breath for your freedom.
Give your life for your thoughts.
