Einstein's brain autopsy proved that he used more of his brain than other humans. How is that possible? How do men get flashes of genius, and why doesn't everyone function at that level of ability all the time? Why did the Dark Ages happen, and why does mankind seem to be sliding that direction again?

A story loosely based upon the "Frank's Post Apoc" Universe from SOL. Lots of radio, a family group and how they handle the depopulation (to a great extent) of the world in west Georgia, USA. This was originally posted for me by Frank Speaks but I feel confident enough to go forward here (not comfortable with some of SOL). Please enjoy. RG
