The story has an intersting premise. Two young engineers generate nonsensical patents for a bit of cash and forget about them.
A few years later, the circumstances of bot engineers have changed and the patents assume much larger significance when the US government and big oil get involved.
The story uses a vaguely plausible set of ideas and circumstances to make a telling commentary on the state of US politics in regards to energy/defence policy, the stresses between the scientific "community" and the devoutly religious, the nature of consciousness and the soul.
However, I thought the story ran out of steam, as it must do if it were not to degenrate into pure fantasy, with an unsettling and unsatisfying ending.

A good read and none that posed many questions of morality in the human race, left me questioning some of by base philosophies.

Took me a few chapters to get the gist of the story but completed the book was quite emotional near the end and quite thought provoking.

Irritating characters, but a fascinating plot especially if you have a smattering of Physics or curiosity about its ideas.
