Consider that Mindforce might be an innate ability. Perhaps it will be available to us in Ancient Greece, the Ice Age and other early eras. I don't know how the story line would explain the need for implants and chips, but I want to throw fire balls (combustive attack chips) at Cyclops, Minotaurs and maybe even Zeus himself. If we cannot use tools from the modern era our Vivos and Hedoks will probably not make the journey. But Mindforce heal skills might keep us from spending most of our time at revivals (if we even have revival terminals in the Ice Age). If Mindforce chips can be used in the early times I certainly hope synthetic ME will not be used. Our friends who spend hours sweating certainly deserve a better price.
