The technology described in the book is not particularly "way out there". Prototypes or precursors exist already. And our knowledge about the human brain – how it functions and how it can be enhanced and altered – is increasing rapidly. The book is futuristic but how far in the future is a good question. Maybe the future is actually very close … Just read it!
When the book opens we find ourselves speeding towards Caldera--the citycorp of Sentivue Industries where in international waters the multinational can pursue its groundbreaking research far from the prying eyes of competing firms as well as the regulatory oversight of nation states. Jared Elsworth is there to roll out the marketing strategy for Sentivue’s newest product, a neural interface which promises to usher in a new dawn for humanity. However, this brave new world takes a decidedly dystopian turn.
‘There is no utopia here. The project of human progress had failed dismally to stop this hell from emerging. Everything they had witnessed stood as an icon to depravity, a regression back to the primal state of kill or be killed. All of it coming from the seed of technological brilliance, of a new opportunity that promised so much and yet proved a false prophet delivering only pain and suffering.’
