Del Rimon discovers that all the data on channeling makes perfect sense if you just leave out all data on Farrises, thus founding Modern Transfer Mechanics as a science. Del Rimon Farris, son of Zeth Farris, known as Delri to his family, and Rimon to everyone else, gathers the refugees from the fallen Forts and founds The House of Zeor with sworn members, ambrov Zeor. History records that Zeor was founded by Rimon Farris, thus confusing the two Rimons. Other places in the world only hear that such a thing as channeling is possible, and re-invent the process for themselves.
The Pen system is working well, fortunes and reputations are being made In-and-Out-Territory. It is not apparent that this society is doomed. The other is Carre.

This first description eventually proves incorrect, as are subsequent modifications of the theory, but over the next 60 years the theory is refined to be good enough to generate and support a burgeoning selyn driven technology based on the selyn-battery.

The battery technology slowly begins to give rise to selyn powered lighting, cars, slideroad trains that "mag-lev" over a refractory bed, and eventually to digital technology. This is not in common usage in-and-Out-T and on outlying farms and homesteads until about to The science that produces the slideroad's bed leads to the integrated circuit and chip technology. This will be seen in the digital telephone network in use around the year in-T and spreading slowly out-T by the mid's.
Official testing and re-testing schedules adopted. Den, a TN-1, shelves his in-Territory ambitions to build a heavier than air flying craft and joins his cousin, Rital, a QN-1, to found a Sime Center farther out-Territory than has been attempted before, in Clear Springs. Selyn Power has come into industrial usage in-Territory and now technological progress is limited by selyn availability. This fuels the political thrust to place Sime Centers in every small town Out-Territory. Out-Territory towns begin to convert from the sparse, only-for-the-rich electrical power to cheap selyn-powered appliances.

From changeover to his death, Digen Farris held the World Controllership a record 6 times 1 year terms -- often not completed. Cross border phone service established, digital selyn-powered networking. It takes nearly a hundred years for the selyn-powered digital phone services to lead to the cross-border Internet because of political resistance, economic instability, and assorted problems not related to technical capability. A Change of Tactics: It has been moved later in the timeline and now includes crucial developments in powered flight and selyn battery technology.
Mary Lou did the rewrite with editing by Jean and Jacqueline.
Vast improvement in selyn battery technology leads to powered flight and explosion of industrial uses. Some High Order Donors trained to drive selyn powered vehicles out-Territory where Gens allowed to be licensed, leads to Donor's out-Territory license requirements including driving lessons, and being licensed to drive in-Territory, daytime, in some places.
Accidents lead to computer controlled selyn-field signals installed in cars, then autonomous vehicles. A different version of the history can be read in Sime Surgeon , a rough draft of this novel, posted online as a text for the WorldCrafters Guild but available to everyone to read free. The donor shortage is remedied by Hayashi's machine-training of Donors.
This leads to eruption of his Endowment.
With revision, the math becomes useful beyond theoretical physics. Levels Math also gives rise to the technology underlying the Attenuators. Meanwhile, the World Controllership is fully established and creates the Clandestine and Covert Operations corps under cover of the Tecton Troubleshooters, hiring the top management for the new agency from Householding Dar. This group is generally considered to have created the cross-border Internet. Up close and personal stories about life on the Border.
They meet an unnamed renSime nicknamed Blissdrip on the Secret Boards who believes he lived a life as the telepath sadist Aunser ambrov D'Zehn founder of the Secret Pens. Now he's a computer geek at the cutting edge of the e-revolution. Over the next decade, several experimental FTL flights, the Jumpers, go out of our solar system and never return. Orbital and Lunar stations and shipyards established. The first FTL ship Jumper 9 makes a round trip fraught with disaster but informative results. The Skip Drive is developed from the Jumper technology, Orgonics technology proliferates, and ever more accurate Astrogation as DeBroglie Beacons are improved and deployed across inhabited space puts human passenger ships into dominance on the Spaceways.
Non-human resentment of human dominance builds as humans take over cargo transport. Non-humans launch ever more risky experimental space ships searching for an FTL drive they can master. Non-human resentment of human dominance of all Space Transport finally explodes as non-humans form various coalitions to unseat humans, and humans fight back on all fronts.
