How Do I Get A Soul? (Fun Fiction)

The only downside was the fact that the organic brain still required oxygen and glucose to survive, and over time would eventually expire no matter how much bioengineering got thrown at it.

The book on my lap had been given to me twelve hours earlier, and I had not put it down to eat or go to the bathroom. This book had been written 40,000 years into the future and was a textbook for college students, or whatever the equivalent would be 40,000 years from now.
