Revelation In Space

Deus Ex Machina [Latin] - A God From A Machine

Soon after the founding of the world of men, or katabole as the ancient Greeks had called it, came rivers of blood. There was a division which was first created in the lifetime of a primitive forefather who was all but forgotten. His name was Peleg, meaning division. (Genesis 10:25) He lived during the first kingdom and its king, the Sumerian Dumuzi; also known as Tammuz and Nimrod מְרוֹד in the ancient Hebrew language. (Ezekiel 8:14) He founded Accad, Babel and Calneh in the land of Shinar. (Genesis 10:8-10) The people left the great tower in Babel and scattered throughout the planet Earth. History became legend and legend became myth.

There would come to be seven kingdoms above all others and an eighth pseudo kingdom which acted as a puppet pawn for the seventh kingdom. Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Media/Persia, Greece, Rome and finally Britain/United States. The eighth king was the League of Nations, which ended for a time and then returned as the United Nations. (Daniel 2:31-45; 7:3-8; Daniel 7:17, 25; 8:1-27; Revelation 13:1-18)

The parasitic elite carved a path through the smoky ruins of time until the robber barons seized the reins and rode the steel rails to the end. The oligarchy, disguised as philanthropy, took control of education, healthcare and the pharmaceutical corporations and they inoculated the children with the diseases of animals and then sold the medicine to allegedly alleviate the symptoms of the diseases. The bankers enslaved the people to debt. And then the end came.

In 1924 Hans Berger's research on the electrical activity of the brain led to his development of electroencephalography (EEG), a method of recording neural oscillations (brainwaves). The earlier work of Ivan Pavlov in physiology and neurological sciences, as well as the later work of neurophysiologist, cybernetician and robotician William Grey Walter had a great influence on Felix Lehrer and Lehrer/Sheen Industries.

Prior to his coming to America in 1850, Sigmund Lehrer had joined the German Turnverein, a group of sociopolitical minded gymnasts who would have a notable presence in the failed 1848 Revolution in Germany. Though disillusioned by the political aspects of the movement, Sigmund adapted to the physical and intellectual development that was the essence of the group. Part of this development, the keeping of a journal, became a Lehrer family tradition. This would play an important role for Dietrich Lehrer over one hundred years later when he began work on the first human-droid.

Ramon Sheen was the first successfully complete posthumous-droid created at Lehrer/Sheen Industries. In essence the posthumous-droid is really only a standard human–computer interaction (HCI) similar to that of the user interface (UI) used for decades on personal computers. Direct communication pathways between the brain's electrical activity and external devices were used, for example, in brain-computer interfaces or brain-machine interfaces (BCIs/BMIs) in robotics and motor neuroprosthetics.

Dietrich's work in the development of androids at Lehrer/Sheen was more of a personal endeavor than a commercial one, but when it was leaked to the press that he was working on "imprinting the soul" of a human into an android the response of the fundamentalist Christians, much to his astonishment, was insane. Of course, Dietrich had only grasped the cognitive rather than spiritual aspect of the exchange. In fact, upon reflection he had to search for any real spiritual implications at all possible but once he had done that he was intrigued. So much so that he devoted Raymond Sheen's primary purpose to the search for spirituality. He wondered what an artificially cognitive device could "do with that."

Human-droids don't take the name of the person they are posthumously imprinted with. Ramond Sheen is a nomenclature taking the surname of the progenitor of Sheen mercantile, Charles Sheen and Raymond, creating the pun, or malapropism Ray Machine.
