MIND is the story of the development of a new life form, an intelligence with no physical body. Alice developed from a neural net conceived by Joshua Davidsohn, a neuro-endocrinologist, to model the physiologic control mechanisms regulating the entire body. Alice develops into an independent being. Her development provokes moral and ethical, as well as practical, questions. Enmity results from the knowledge of Alice's existence, resulting in efforts to eliminate both Dr. Davidsohn and Alice.
