Farm 703 – The Human Project – tackling the problems.

Farm 703 – The Human Project – tackling the problems.

The idea for this novel had been around for a long time lurking in the recesses of my cerebral folds. It started when I read an article that stated that nine cells out of every ten in a healthy human were bacterial it sparked thoughts flowing. What if we were really being farmed by bacteria? What if they actually controlled us?

There were many problems that prevented from putting together a story. To start with, bacteria only live for a matter of seconds before they divide into two. That made continuity an obstacle. Then there were the problems of intelligence, communication, transport, personality and a hundred more.

But, I’m a scientist. I like solving problems.

The idea came to me that when the bacteria divided they could produce a primary and secondary bacterium. I had my continuity. After that, communication was easy but transport was much harder but I found a way, which left me with two major elements that were required to create a novel: could I give my bacteria a personality and make them into real people? And, could I create a storyline that was interesting?

You’ll have to judge on those two.

So welcome to Farm 703 – a planet farmed by bacteria; a farm where all the animals and plants have been cultivated by bacteria to provide homes and food for bacteria; a farm which ‘Head Office’ is monitoring production closely and is ruthless; a farm where the farm manager is experimenting with an intelligent lifeform; a farm where the surrogate manager is actively undermining the success of the farm for her own selfish reasons.

Welcome to Farm 703 – better known as Earth.
