In an interview with one of the leading company in medical research SciTechMed magazine (STM) asked eight questions to help clear the fog about who Abstergo is and what they do.
STM: So what does the name Abstergo mean?
Abstergo: It means “I cleanse”
STM: Why that name?
Abstergo: Because with our products we hope to cleanse humanity of harmful diseases.
STM: What is the Animus?
Abstergo: The Animus allows people to relive their past by reading the persons genetic memory and projecting it on to a screen in three dimensions, it’s also used for research purposes as well as medical applications.
STM: How does the Animus work?
Abstergo: This is our most important company secret, which gives us an advantage in the tough competition of medical research. We can say that the Animus reads the memories of the user’s ancestors embedded within the user’s DNA to create a fully immersive sensory experience in which that user can actually relive his or her ancestors’ memories.
STM: How long does an Animus technician train for?
Abstergo: It’s different for each person based on skill level and knowledge before applying. They can take anywhere between two weeks and two months to complete the training.
STM: What applications does the Animus have on the medical world?
Abstergo: It helps people overcome traumatic events and strengthens people with amyotrophy, a condition in which muscle tissue progressively wastes away. If you repeatedly do an action in the Animus your body will learn that movement and you will be able to perform that movement outside the Animus. Hopefully one day we can cure Alzheimer’s and paralysis with the Animus.
STM: Besides medicine and lineage research, does Abstergo do anything else like environmental or green research?
Abstergo: We have many divisions, such as bioinformatics, genetic engineering, future technology, space technology as well as environmental engineering.
STM: What can we see from Abstergo in the future?
Abstergo: Currently the Animus team is perfecting work on the Portable Animus. We are also working on expanding our space, energy, and communications divisions with the pending launch of the EYE-ABSTERGO satellite.
