The novel combines multiple fictional and non-fictional genres, into what some now call "trans-humanism." This sci-fi/fantasy (cyberpunk) novel might best be described as Isaac Asimov meets J.R.R.

The intriguing question is: How did mystics who lived more than 2,000 years ago come to the same conclusions without the aid of scientific instruments or advanced mathematics? Can we enter directly into a reality unbounded by space or time? Is this familiar 3d universe only a transient virtual reality?< Less
