What if scientists developed a way to create a virtual representation of neural activity, of a human brain – a complete computer-generated simulation capable of thought. What if people worried that such scientific developments could lead to a Singularity, where artifical intelligence could overwhelm our own. But there’s no danger … is there? It begins with the staring – people stopping mesmerised by something only they can see; the suicides – WE ARE BECOMING.
This is a great, rollercoaster of a book – the world seems in danger somehow from people who are experiencing visions, or are they hallucinations? We see these experiences as some people around the world ‘live’ through them – and we see the ‘real’ world from the perspective of John Macbeth, a psychiatrist working on a large scientific project in Denmark. What we know, what we experience, what we believe, what we can really point to as truth is torn apart in this book which spans the globe and the ages.
This book is absolutely gripping and a great read. I truly did not see the ending coming; this is one of those books that as soon as you think you know how it is going to pan out, it changes course entirely, throwing the reader into a new path of discovery – brilliantly conceived, wonderfully written and put together as a mind-trap for the unwary reader, this is a great book. Christopher Galt, the author is apparently a pseudonym for an acclaimed thriller author, Craig Russell. I look forward to reading more of his works.
