This is the simple story of two college students who find themselves involved in a dream experiment which reveals new metaphysical and quantum reality. If you see that as a contradiction… good!
This book pushes no religion, yet the term “spiritual” may be used to describe its underlying theme, interwoven throughout the plot; a surprising mystery that takes place on the campus of the University of Vienna.
Those who will be interested in this story instinctively sense there is something more to who we are than just a collection of cells designed to walk around a bit, eat, copulate, and then rot in the dirt. Think about it! Does that make any sense at all to you?
That’s like a future archaeologist digging up the ancient ruins of the Daytona Motor Speedway ten thousand years from now and writing up his findings as, “…it was used for absolutely nothing, a concrete oval of no significance or function!” Perhaps atheists would buy into that, but not you and I. To us, 20 million tons of concrete must have had a purpose and we’re going to find out what it was! Casting off something as important as our own lives as “meaningless” seems to be the epitome of cerebral sloth. In school, when an atheist came upon a complicated math equation they could not solve, did they write “NOTHING” as their answer and expect to receive full credit?
This is not a Christian, nor even a religious book. Even for the devout, there are still a million questions that no book can answer, but intelligent people are still asking them.
If there is a place where God can be reconciled with science, a single point in the universe where they finally shake hands, it lies deep in the uncharted region of our own subconscious mind. The answer to almost anything is right there, if you search hard enough!
This is a story for the few who still wonder about the “BIG THINGS” in life, like our very place in the universe. However, this is not the sleepy narrative of an academic lecture. It’s a novel that centers on a psychology student enrolled in the alma mater of Sigmund Freud, so of course, dreams are involved!
If you have ever stared up at the stars and wondered, you should enjoy this novel; a story that starts off simply (in the juvenile hall of a college cafeteria,) and then grow more complicated.
By the end, you may be asking yourself new, meaningful questions and what’s more, actually looking inside yourself for the answer. Consider that! A question answered from within without even Google’s help!
“Questioning;” man’s greatest attribute over his animal rivals and the source of everything fantastic we have ever achieved as a race, yet sadly, something people no longer do. (Considering who will take home this year’s Grammy for “Best New Artist” isn’t questioning!) The way society is headed, that may someday be the pinnacle of critical thinking, but we aren’t quite that far gone, at least not yet.
There is still a tiny slice of Copernicus in all of us and who’s that? The man, who after having been told that the Earth is the center of the Universe for his entire life, looked up and proclaimed “Foohey!”
“…Your story leads me to question my own place in the cosmos? Who has time for such nonsense! I’m far too busy with Facebook posts and re-tweets to ponder something like the notion of “time!” “Time” is simply the movement of clock hands represented by a number on my cell phone… isn’t it?”
Unlike the dope that said that… if YOU would like to ponder “time,” and even your very own existence while following a fun story, this book is for you. Thank you for reading about Adrian, Thomas and Susan!
