Clients for the services of IMID may present from any circumstance and/or location, though it is our experience that direct communication is more effective, and that regular updates and meetings are necessary to become fully immersed in a clients project with what s/he intends and/or does not intend. While this is possible for paid projects, much of the Virtual Service is dedicated to the health and vitality of our community at large, so it is not always possible to be focused on an individual problem.
Translating the benefits of our work to the next generation by normal reproductive means with characteristics sought out by the wealthy few, positions our industry to avoid the endless need to write and rewrite genetic information for ourselves and others, and prevents treating human beings as either products or commodities. We hope to provide an evolutionary adaptation, rather than an isolated incident of correction or improvement. [i]
The most sincere pursuit of radical solutions is most likely be found within the community of those facing terminal illness and their loved ones, or families seeking solutions out of desperation. There are those among us in hospice who would rather survive with a focus on useful applications of genetic engineering rather than cope with the exploitation of the pharmaceutical industry.
To begin the process of applying what we've learned to make functional changes - in Vivo please consider: G-protien-coupled receptors, for Structure Determination and Analysis.
The reality of this technology is that it can, and already is being driven by our will to do so, and that stopping the implementation of our will is not likely when the mechanism of action is an unstoppable machine. What we really need is a higher awareness of our will and intentions at this level, to be sure that when we set out to get what we think we want, we aren't disappointed, or damaged by the result.
At the University of Minnesota Biotech Department, EEG has been used to control a computer by monitoring intention. Real time monitoring of brain signals resulting from our intentions can be used to control a cursor, or mouse on screen. The same technology can be used to interpret MRI and the conceptual language we use as words and pictures to print them to machines, or even the Internet. Brain activity is a common language in nature, and can be captured by modern technology from a safe distance to harness it for hands free use!
Flying a helicopter is a difficult task, but with the same principles we used to operate a computer, we can control a remote to fly in one direction or another.

The human genome and our own particular adaptation is a global resource so common to each of us, that motivation for progress and positive change drives our ambition naturally. It remains for us to take advantage of the diversity we have access to more effectively. Because it is a physical resource not likely to be nationalized, or exhausted like natural resources found on the earth, or in the sea, it is not confined by national boundaries or limit of supply. The Uruguay Round of the GATT agreements (circa 1996) allows for the international exchange of Intellectual Property across borders, which provides room for genetic patents. The more probable threat to opportunity and access comes from gated and financially entitled communities....but the real value of our opportunity is actually found within our diversity, so excluding populations is disadvantageous.[ii]
Human behavior and reproduction are driven by traits that optimally support life to begin with. To try to duplicate that aspect of evolution would be redundant. It is more relevant to focus on cost-effective corrections to aberrations in individuals and society that result from the toxic threats we can become, by establishing ourselves with what we've already learned and confirmed, and passing it on to our children as a birthright, or adaptation within the world and themselves. However bio-mechanical these solutions may become, cloud delivery of our adaptations will continue to serve as a persistent remedy extending, and improving our lives, and the quality of life.
