About the Institute of Empathy
On behalf of the Empathics, Welcome. This website was organized by our Institute of Empathy located in Greene County, New York, and documents our biological transformation and the history of Empathic culture.
The Institute of Empathy was founded in 2008 to excavate a burial site in the woods of upstate New York. The bones we found initially appeared human, but we came to realize they had an unfamiliar genetic chimerism. A chimera is the result of two embryos fusing in the early stages of cell division. In this case, not only did these bones contain the genetic material of two distinct organisms, but the organisms came from two different kingdoms of the natural world: animal (human) and plant. Because the human genetic material is dominant, the bones exhibit mostly humanoid characteristics.
