His Brain


Im sitting in the caf, eating tuna salad and guzzling a Sprite when Pete flops down beside me.

I dont even look up cause I know its him by the rush of his air.  I chew and guzzle.  Silence.  Finally

Weve got his brain.

Now I look up.  I blinked twice before speaking.  No way.



Noit wasnt.

Howafter all this time..?

Two thousand years, I breathe out.

More.  But worm-hole technology and medical science has come a long way.  We were able to pinpoint the exact time of His death.  We needed a pretty tall ladder and some nano-tools for the removal.     The skull wasnt bad, but those thorns messy.

Witnesses?  I ask trying to remember what the Book said.

He laughed.  No.  Not really.    As soon as the solders saw us materialize like bats outta hell, I tell ya.

His brain.   I cant believe it.  So..?

Mmmm... Complete connections between right and left halves. Full usage.    If we all have his abilities like were supposed to..

Thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart I quote.    I went dreamy thinking of the possibilities. Doesnt the Book say that we even have even more than His?

Not exactlybut thats the idea.   Weve done some preliminary testing.  So far weve tested for telepathy, transmutation and teleportation.

And..?   Beads of sweat drip from my forehead.

He nods.  Confirmed.  All of it.   It suggests initially that the Book is really a Historical recordHe could do all those thingsHe had the brain for it.

Jeeze.  Thatll shake the critics.  I reach for the Sprite.


More.  Tell me.   I was salivating.

Weve done neuro-scans, virtual dissections, analysis of the fluids and electro- magnetic spectrum analysis of neural activity.  And because we were able to time it just rightless than 6 minutes after he died, oxygen wasnt totally depleated; we were able to savea lot.  We were even able to get some neural images of what He saw right before He


Yeah, Tom.  No doubt about it.   Glorious.

Jesus.   I whisper.

Yeah.  Peter says.
