Android, Age One is a science fiction adventure based on the real
life and death of a child with leukodystrophy. The setting is the
writer's idea of how a recent discovery about human genetics may
have happened. The mitachondrial structures in human cells indicate
that as few as two women, perhaps more than 100,000 years ago, gave
their genetic heritage to every human on earth today.

A journal which records my experiences up to the time I wrote Android
appears after the story.


Android, Age One is a science fiction adventure based on a real event.

The author created the character, Android, from a child born with a
genetic anomaly called leukodystrophy. The trait occurs in the nuclear
family of the writer.

The fictional setting for the story reflects recent studies tracing
human female mitachondrial cell structures. The studies indicated that
all humans living now are descended from as few as two females who
lived on earth more than 100,000 years ago.

      Chapter One - Onion's Run - 200,075 years ago

       Onion Deergada jogged gently along a quiet path in the pine
       forest. Cool air floated blousily past her trim figure. Her
       thoughts refreshed themselves. Android died five years ago,
       at the age of three, however the memory of his sleeping body
       pressed upon her shoulder even now.

       A more recent memory flashed into the peaceful path. Irene
       and Dare ... Onion knew her speed would never match Irene's.
       Still, the thought of having Dare to herself was compelling.
       Her marriage to Noore failed since Android's death. She and
       Noore were unable to conceive a divorce.

       "Mom!"  Nira called.

       "What are you doing here?" Onion resisted the intrusion.

       "We're going swimming. Do you want to go with us?"

       "Gram is bringing Rode home soon. I'll have to watch him."

       Onion felt a chill. She knew Rand would be home alone too.

      Chapter Two - The Tremors and the Trek - 200,085 years ago

       Daily, for almost six months, strong tremors shook the earth.
       Large calderas were erupting thousands of miles west of Onion's
       village. The high winds carried the dust eastward.

       Unable to control his direction, Noore Giandade sailed far to
       the east of his home. His small craft was at sea when the first
       wave of tremors started. Powerful currents from the west forced
       Noore's path for hundreds of miles. He landed at Negro Coast.

       "Hello, friend," Onion's voice greeted Noore.

       "I have caught some fish to be cooked," Noore responded.

       "You are welcome here," Onion encouraged.

       After Noore arrived, the community realized the extent of the
       damage caused by the earthquakes. They gathered in the village
       circle and made plans to relocate.

       They travelled by land to the east for several weeks. When they
       settled along the Great Rift Valley, Onion knew that she would
       have a home here for many years. Large herds of deer and buffalo
       trended by. Many fish wended the cool streams. The villagers had
       appointed Onion's father, Radoni, to provide them with food. He
       was an excellent hunter and fisherman.

       In addition to Noore, four extended families survived. Onion and
       Irene were the only unmarried females of child-bearing age. When
       the community settled, Irene chose to marry Don, whom she had
       known since childhood. Onion was growing closer to Noore.

       Radoni spoke gently to his daughter. He told her that he and her
       mother were growing old. They could not provide for her needs in
       the future. Onion smiled to herself. How comforting that Radoni
       believed in her future. Her mother added that they would help to
       take care of the children.

       Onion laughed. "How do you know I want to have children?"

       "You love children," her mother encouraged Onion's good humor.

      Chapter Three - Onion's Motherhood - 200,075 years ago

       Nira and Rode gratified Onion's mothering needs. Well, Rode did.
       Nira's fierce sense of competition made Onion wonder about their
       relationship. Nira's challenges aroused discomfort in everyone
       except Radoni. He encouraged her to play games and to fish with
       him. Nira beamed at her success in playing games. She inherited
       Noore's muscular body and strong jaw.

       Nira's brother, Rode, had been found during a hunting expedition
       by Noore and Radoni. His mother died soon after giving birth to
       Rode during a lonely journey from the north. Onion and Noore had
       recently lost Android to a fatal blood disorder and they adopted
       Rode without hesitation. Rode, a fair-haired child, grew strong
       and tan in the now sunny skies.

       Irene's sons, Dane and Erik, were excellent companions for Rode.
       Except for Nira's challenges, everyone treated Rode with gentle
       encouragement. Rode admired Radoni and spent many hours learning
       to hunt and fish. Irene and Don agreed to allow their sons to go
       with Rode and Radoni on the expeditions. They had also agreed to
       end their marriage after Irene and Dare made their relationship
       known. Onion's anguish at her secret affair with Rand caused her
       to envy Irene even more.

       Onion's family and friends were celebrating Nira's 9th birthday.
       Rand and his wife and children, Radoni, Gram, Noore, Irene, with
       her two sons, and Onion's elder brother attended.

       "I'm scared." Onion whispered to her brother, Anden.

       "You're scared," Anden said loudly, "how do you think I feel?"

       Onion realized the consequences of her decision to tell Anden
       about her affair with Rand.

      Chapter Four - Onion's New Husband - 200,060 years ago

       Gentle rain cooled the mid-summer air. Onion and Jay had been
       married for less than year. Onion knew that her third marriage
       would be a joyful one. Jay was so different from Noore and Gene.
       Jay was undefeatable. His spirit was lightly humorous and he
       held the same deep respect for God that Onion held. In addition,
       Jay and Radoni held each other in sincere respect. Jay was not
       as wealthy as Noore and not as poor as Gene. Jay was generous
       with his time. He devoted himself to Onion and the children.

       At the same time, Jay was able to discipline the children and
       provide a brave example to them. He was fearless and had been
       injured many times while protecting the children during their
       expeditions. He defended Onion during Nira's emotional bouts,
       without attacking Nira.

       Nira's son, Danny, was four years old. Nira was still a child
       in many ways. Her self-indulgence grew more resistant as Noore
       and Onion attempted to enforce their stoic rules on her. Rode
       was far more supple in his emotional response to Onion. He did,
       however, have a strong temper. Radoni's gentleness prevailed,
       and Rode took the example to heart. In contrast, Nira persisted
       in her challenges to Onion's patience. Nira chose to live with
       Ned, an outcast from his own family. They kept a small puppy
       and kitten for Danny to play with when he visited them.

       Danny, like Rode, attached himself to Radoni. Danny chose to
       live with Gram and Anden. Radoni continued hunting and fishing
       at age 81! Rode spent much of his time with his intended spouse,
       Niger, a lovely girl. Rode and Niger were bold explorers and
       spent many hours searching the forest for hidden treasures.

       Anden, in his mid-fifties, spent much of his time with Danny.
       Danny was a delightful child, harmlessly mischievous, and
       willing to include others in the possession of even his most
       treasured toys.

       "You can have it," were some of Danny's earliest words.

       Offering anyone his well-worn toys, Danny always drew a smile
       on even the most somber of faces.

       Danny's father had been killed while hunting, long before Danny
       was born. Rather than mourn his loss, Danny had a keen sense of
       humor. He called Jay "daddy" and the father of his young friend,
       Reed, "my dad."  Reed's mother, born during the tremors, gave
       birth to a daughter, near the time of Danny's fourth birthday.
       Reed, having lost his only-child status, came to play with Danny
       more often. Jay's children, Mary, age six, and Jay, ten, were
       constant companions. Behaviors imitated by the younger children
       were not always those desired by the adults.

      Chapter Five - Onion's Father as a Young Man - 201,015 years ago

       Radoni was 24 years old. His five brothers and four sisters held
       a party with many friends and family members. Radoni, the eldest
       child, had worked ten long years to feed and clothe his family.
       Their father had been injured then, and Radoni willingly became
       the provider.

       Radoni's brother, Neld, stood up.

       "I wish to honor my brother, Radoni, for taking care of us."

       "Alright, alright," Radoni blushed, "let us eat now."

       Tribes across the Central Divide were rumored to be in battle.
       Radoni's brothers talked of nothing else. They gathered every
       day in the village circle to plan a journey to the north. Many
       of the young men wanted to go in order to detect any fighting
       that might spread south.

       Carrying their weapons and loading the carts and pack animals,
       the men prepared for the dangerous trek. The women gathered and
       wept for their loss. Memories of past battles and so many lives
       shattered by war haunted the elders.

       Again, Neld spoke for the group.

       "I would like to express my gratitude to all who are with us."

       Radoni, recently married, stayed in order to provide the people
       with food and supplies. Radoni's son, Anden, was born within a
       year of the departure.

       A few weeks after the young men departed, travelers from the
       north confirmed the rumors of a battle hundreds of miles north
       of the village. Many tribes sought new territories and revenge
       for conflicts long past. The expanse of the Central Divide and
       the rich northern resources made a southern attack unlikely.

       The conflict ended after several months of destruction. Many
       young men did not return to the village. Those who did return
       spoke of the bravery of their slain comrades. The villagers
       were thankful that the battle had not spread south.

       Onion was born near the time that the survivors returned. Some
       men had severe injuries and the villagers made shelters to care
       for the wounded. The small community expanded as new members,
       displaced by the war, came to reside in the south. Warm climate
       and open lands made the south attractive. Some of the men who
       returned were accompanied by wives they had met in the north.

       The conflict killed two of Radoni's brothers. Two surviving
       brother's married, one to a woman from the north, and one to a
       young woman from a nearby village. The youngest brother had
       stayed in the village and now requested Radoni's permission to
       travel far to the south.

       A celebration was planned and gifts were prepared for the trip
       of Radoni's brother. He was expected to remain in the south and
       to marry a young woman whom he had met during her visit to the

      Chapter Six - Onion's Childhood - 201,005 years ago

       Radoni's prestige grew as he continued to provide the community
       with needed goods and services. Many of the young adults spoke
       publicly about Radoni contributing to their families during
       their growing years. Onion and Anden admired their father.

       Onion's birth name was Marinde. At age 7 she had a disorder in
       her body's ability to process food. Her shape grew from that of
       a slim child to that of a bulbous onion. She never lost her good
       humor and called herself Onion from that time. The disorder had
       disappeared by Onion's tenth birthday. She spent more time with
       Radoni and with other children. Radoni led the children in their
       games and on expeditions.

       Onion learned to run long distances and to exercise for strength
       by watching Anden and the other children. Radoni organized teams
       and encouraged both boys and girls to play. Children from nearby
       villages joined the games. Radoni watched carefully to see that
       the rules were kept and that the children did not get injured.

       Anden, however, was injured many times during contact games with
       the older boys. At age 13 a front tooth was knocked out, and a
       few years later his nose was broken.

       The northern territorial wars gave the survivors an incentive to
       train the younger men as warriors. When Anden became an adult,
       he was assigned to an outpost northwest of the village. Anden's
       intelligence and physical fitness brought him many rewards as a
       warrior in spite of his small stature. After several months of
       training, Anden returned to the village and resided with Radoni.

      Chapter Seven - Onion's Pregnancies - 200,083 years ago

       The wars had also spawned the health care shelters, and a body
       of knowledge about general treatment of illnesses. After his
       military service, Anden worked and studied at the shelters.

       In the aftermath of the tremors and in the richness of the Rift
       Valley, the small community prospered. Onion and Noore married
       and were soon preparing for the birth of their first child. The
       child was a healthy girl. Onion called her Nira which was the
       name of Noore's mother.

       Two years after Nira's birth, Onion was pregnant with Android.

       "You must eat properly," Gram advised Onion.

       Since her childhood illness, Onion had managed to stay slim and
       physically fit. Gram had gained much extra weight when she was
       pregnant with Onion. Gram was worried that Onion would not eat
       well in order to prevent this. Onion, however, continued in good
       health throughout her second pregnancy.

       When Android was born, Noore named him Andoni after Radoni's
       father. Within six months of his birth, Andoni became severely
       stricken with convulsions. Treatment for the disorder could not
       cure Andoni, however his convulsions were prevented by a strong
       sedative. He remained in a comatose state until his death at age
       three. Onion nicknamed him Android, that is "mechanical doll,"
       since he made no movements at all while sedated.

       Anden continued to work at the health shelters. He discovered by
       speaking with Gram that other children in her ancestry had died
       in early childhood. Noore recalled such disorders from the oral
       histories of his homeland.

       About the time of Android's first birthday, Onion experienced
       severe depressions. She spoke to her brother about wanting to
       end her life. Anden had learned about treatments of the combat
       survivors for such symptoms. He arranged for Onion to be given
       one of these medications at the shelter.

       Onion resumed her distance running, and soon reported to Anden
       that she would not require further treatment. However, she did
       not disclose that Irene and Dare were supplying her with other
       substances which they had purchased during visits in the south.

       Effects from the substances and the burden of Android's disorder
       pressed upon Onion's emotional needs. Her marriage to Noore had
       been troubled by her depression and by Noore's inability to see
       Onion's dependence.

       By the time of Android's second birthday, Onion accepted help in
       the daily burden of caring for him. Gram and Radoni brought the
       child to live with them. Radoni's aged and disabled father also
       lived with Radoni.

      ****************THE PATH TO THE ANAGRAM MESSAGE******************

       The path to the anagram that inspired me started several years
       ago. I was reading the book Whole-Brain Thinking by Jacquelyn
       Wonder and Priscilla Donovan. In the chapter called Suspenders,
       a panel refers to subliminal phrases which helped people to do
       well at dieting, trying to quit smoking and calming thoughts.
       The phrases most helpful were "Mommy and I are one" and "Daddy
       and I are one."

       I chose the phrase "God and I are one." Several years after I
       read the book, I found a computer program which took phrases
       and printed all the anagrams of the phrase. "Android, Age One"
       and the names Onion Deergada and Noore Giandade are anagrams of
       "God and I are one."


      Chapter Eight - Onion's Brother - 200,082 years ago

       Onion's brother, Anden, travelled to many nearby communities to
       work and learn at their shelters. He discovered that many women
       who had survived the conflicts now worked as physicians. One of
       these women, Jessica Lex, had collected a team of workers. She
       offered Anden a place to work in her shelter. Dr. Lex authored
       many references about blood disorders and kept a library filled
       with medical information. Anden spent all of his time working or

       Dr. Lex's daughter returned from a work-study session at a large
       city in the north.

       "This is Jaysee," Dr. Lex said.

       "Good to see you," Anden replied. Jaysee was very attractive!

       Dr. Lex had been wounded many times during the conflicts. She
       rescued many people and treated their wounds, often ignoring her
       own. Like many of the survivors, she was thin and tough. Jaysee
       inherited Dr. Lex's toughness, however she chose to study music.

       At their first meeting, Jaysee had not even spoken to Anden! She
       nodded briefly and left the shelter to rest from her journey. At
       the next encounter, she apologized.

       "My mother says that you spend all of your time working."

       Anden could not speak for a few moments, surprised and pleased
       to hear Jaysee's voice.

       "I -um, I do a lot of reading and running. Do you like to jog?"

       Jaysee and Anden agreed to meet at a competitive run a few days

      Chapter Nine - The Race - 200,081 years ago

       Onion joined Anden and Jaysee at the bottom of a steep grassy
       slope. Many other runners waited for the competition to start.
       All of them were men!

       "Are you sure women are included in this?" Onion asked Anden.

       "Anyone who wants to run can, however ..." Anden looked around.

       "Women are going to run this race!" A thin tough male spoke.

       "We're just beginners," Anden apologized, "we'll run behind the
        other runners so we will not interfere with the competition."

       The race began. About fifty men spurted up the hill. Anden,
       Onion and Jaysee jogged comfortably in their path. At the top,
       all of the other runners were far ahead. A clump of trees just
       beyond the top of the slope introduced the real challenge of the
       race. A steeper slope appeared to go up to the clouds!

       "I can't even see the other runners," Onion despaired.

       "We told them we would run last." Anden doubted.

       Jaysee encouraged them.

       "I have travelled hundreds of miles, this is just a few more."

       Onion laughed. Anden warned Onion and Jaysee to drop out of the
       race if they were too exhausted. Jaysee laughed.

       "We will carry you home, Anden," Jaysee promised.

       Onion ran gently for about eight miles.

       "I am quitting." Onion stopped and sat on the cool damp grass.

       "We'll see you at the finish line," Anden called.

       At eighteen miles, Anden began to limp.

       "I can't run," he stated without emotion, "I have blisters."

       Jaysee stopped. Anden did not want to delay her.

       "No, you can finish the race! Go ahead. I'll be fine."

       All the other runners passed by after the midpoint turn of the
       race. After walking a few miles back down the hill, Anden found
       Onion still sitting in the grass.

       "You have rested enough," Anden tried to be humorous.

       Onion refused to get up. Anden pulled her arm and she stood,
       then sat down again.

       "Come on! Jaysee is waiting for us at the finish line."

       Onion reluctantly reached her hand to the ground. As she lifted
       herself, her finger struck a sharp rock.

       "Aaauuch!," Onion screamed, "I think my finger is broken!"

       "You will heal," Anden retorted, pulling Onion up.

      Chapter Ten - The Funeral and Marriage - 200,080 years ago

       One week before Android's third birthday, his breathing became
       difficult. He had developed a lung infection and was not able to
       resist it. Early in the morning, before daybreak, he died. Onion
       refused to come to Radoni's home to see Android's body.

       "I want to remember him alive," she pleaded.

       Radoni prepared a funeral ceremony early the next day. Onion
       and Noore attended. Nira stayed with Anden at Radoni's home.

       "All gone, Android," Nira observed.

       Anden wept.

       After the burial, Jaysee wanted Anden to walk with her to the
       village circle to buy a gift for Onion. They stopped at a small
       cove near a stream. Jaysee had brought a blanket. They sat on a
       soft grassy plain hidden from the path to the village. Jaysee
       put her hand on Anden's arm. Quietly, they kissed. Comforting
       each other's grief, they made love and held each other weeping.
       They woke hours later and walked to the marketplace.

       "Here is a lovely coat," Jaysee wrapped herself in the garment.

       "It's really nice. Onion will love it," Anden agreed.

       When they returned, Gram was curious.

       "Where have you two been all this time? We were worried!"

       "We're fine," Anden assured, "we bought a fine coat for Onion."

       "That must have cost you too much," Gram offered to pay for it.

       "Don't be silly," Anden resolved, "Jaysee and I are both working
        and we want to do something for Onion ourselves."

       "Well, if you need money later, I'll help you," Gram promised.

       The promise of marriage between Jaysee and Anden was expected by
       everyone. Hundreds of people were invited, including Radoni's
       brother in the south.

       Radoni's brother and his wife brought their child, who was ill.
       Only a few months old, she had difficulty with meals. Jaysee's
       father, also a physician, offered to help.

       Jaysee's father examined the child and found that the tube from
       her throat to her stomach was not formed properly. He performed
       an operation to strengthen the tube and the child grew healthy.

      Chapter Eleven - The Reunion and Remarriage

       Radoni's family and friends gathered together every year. They
       chose a large open area in the middle of the forest. Everyone
       brought food and drinks. Some travelled hundreds of miles from
       north, south and west to attend the reunion.

       Neld, married to a woman from the north, made sketches of the
       scenes and wrote the names of those who attended.

       This year, Onion and Jay celebrated their first anniversary.

       Neld spoke, "Let us all wish Onion and Jay many happy years."

       Onion blushed, "Thank you all for your good wishes."

       Onion and Jay had been married in another part of the forest.
       Jay's daughter, Mary, led Onion's path to a small bridge over a
       stream. Mary carried a basket of flower petals and cast them in
       front of Onion. The preacher stood on the bridge while Onion and
       Jay approached from opposite sides of the stream.

       Family and friends watched from a gentle slope on Jay's side of
       the stream. A small group played songs of love and devotion. The
       preacher spoke to the people.

       "I have been a preacher for thirty years, my dear friends, and
        this is the most beautiful ceremony I have ever seen. May you
        all be blessed by it. And let us pray for the marriage of Jay
        and Onion."

       Radoni stood by the preacher to offer Onion's hand to Jay.

JOURNAL started Oct 12, 1991.

In January of 1990 I began a very moderate weight loss program

which has lowered my weight from 185 to 155.

Goal 150 + or - 6 pounds.

Calcium may be OK. Bad water may be cause of pain in back.

Grinding teeth, face pain. Back pain may be cholesterol stones.

On 29 July 1991 after some physical activity and aspirin, ibuprofen

and acetaminophen coupled with no calcium in diet or in supplement

I aggravated my stomach to the point of a hospital visit for

Tagamet. By October 7 I had reversed the condition to a point of

too much calcium by supplement. Bad water heater caused severe pain

in upper right abdomen?

Less pain with lecithin, acetaminophen and canned cherries to put

cholesterol at a lower level. Medical newsletter received

October 12 stated that fat cells during weight loss can release

cholesterol in large amounts before settling to the lowered level

of weight and cholesterol. Also the body may produce cholesterol

for balance when diet is low in fat.

The physical activity included sitting at the computer so that

the back muscles are tense. Also before the stomach problem I

ate some potatoes that were not cooked enough.

Continuing good health care includes acidophilus in supplement

form which stops genital itching, foot fungus and skin on feet

peeling. Peroxide mouthwash about once a week or less coupled

with regular mouthwash used every few hours has reduced

all dental and mouth problems. Quick brushing and flossing after

meals and careful food choices also helps. Antihistamine at the

first sign of problems is preventing mouth problems. Better foot

care including epsom salts and aloe vera liquid soap as well as

alcohol rubs prevent and reverse foot problems.

Increased use of wipes has helped eye care and skin care in

general. Zinc oxide with cod liver oil helped when red spot

developed near groin inside right leg when stones in kidney

were dissolving. Deep sea ocean kelp iodine supplement has

helped prevent chills and hunger with cold weather.

More frequent laundering and bagging dirty laundry during the

week has helped. Also liquid bleach mixed with better

laundry detergents has prevented problems and solved a fungus

or whatever it was in the clothes. Keeping the dirty clothing

bagged and fairly dry while spraying or soaking it with pine

cleaner or baking soda deodorant have been excellent aids.

More frequent changing of furnace air filter and airing of

cellar coupled with rinsing sewer in cellar floor daily with

soapy water while turning on the air and opening cellar door

have combined to make cellar safer.

Oct 13: Improved productivity with computer programming to

achieve stated goals. Goals include balancing and stabilizing

satisfying entertainment and leisure time in home life while

planning work load. Work values consistent with discretionary

freedom, control and personal significance as well as joy and

pride in satisfying employment are current factors in choices

to realize now. Adequate feedback to judge my performance and

personal confidantes who respect and admire me are also goals.

Oct 17: Ate yogurt, ice cream and chocolate in past few days;

sore jaw, gums, toothache and swollen lip, needed antihistamine.

role in Lorenzo's Oil, Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon were there.
