Alternative history: Keeve Process

KEEVE PROCESS

We owe the illegal Keeve Process to neuropsychopharmacological research conducted in the 2010s. The Keeve Process fuses the hemispheres of the brain by filling the fissure between them with a haphazard network of artificial fibres and drug-producing glands. After recovering, many patients experience improved concentration and greater conscious control over their mental processes. However, others suffer irreparable damage to the prefrontal cortex that can cause a variety of neuropsychological problems.

In 2036, a Eurasian research committee undertook an extensive study of fourteen patients who underwent the Keeve Process between 2020 and 2025. They found that eleven now appeared to suffer from degrees of schizophrenic ideation:

Five, the committee judged, now believed themselves in touch with religious, extraterrestrial or preternatural powers.

Two others appeared to experience reoccurring visual hallucinations of fantastical natures.

The remaining four the committee believed to suffer from delusions of grandeur.
