NuHu –a contraction of New Human – are extremely tall, long‐limbed morphs with bodies that are slight or even frail. However, it is their considerable mental abilities that make them distinct from other humans. NuHu are hyper‐intelligent and possess machine‐like powers of recall. This alone makes them formidable individuals, but what really sets them apart is their capacity to interact with nano‐based technology.
Whilst other humans must rely upon interfaces or implanted devices to interact with the many machine intelligences of advanced Antarean societies, the NuHu can do so with their minds alone. This power is seated deep within a part of the brain that is sensitive to electro‐magnetic radiation and which forms a bond with the tiny nanites that saturate the worlds of human space.
In this way NuHu are born and grow up immersed in an environment that is part of the nanosphere. To them it is entirely normal to live co‐joined lives with the IMTel(Integrated Machine Intelligence) that controls all aspects of advanced human societies. They are at the same time the masters of this technology and expressions of it, living creatures that are also part of a greater machine mind. Scarce wonder that to many ordinary humans they often appear to be living machines, cold and inhuman.
