A Conscious Thing, ebook

The third book I wrote in the speculative fiction genre.

A Conscious Thing

Purchase from here.

What started out as a human experiment by a mutant race of Cyborgs from a different planet has become a desperate race for survival. Cyborgs changed the human DNA to remove anger. Those people live on Planet 444 where existential events are imminent. Can a community without anger find a way to survive?

The binary star system the planet revolves around emits increasing amounts and strength of X-rays and people are dying from radiation poisoning. The limited amount of fertile soil the Cyborgs gave them can’t produce enough food to sustain the population and marijuana crops are using more and more of the food-producing soil. They use the marijuana crops to make pharmaceuticals to fight the radiation poison and the fibers make x-ray protective clothing. The white dwarf star’s extreme gravity causes the x-ray quakes to increase on the neutron star and the two will soon collide making a kilonova event that will torch everything and everybody on the planet.

One goes in search of answers in the lost sutra believed to be somewhere in the wasteland. One uses a ritual invocation to impregnate the queen with a super-human infant. One follows the exact formula for communal living that leads to transcendence. One focuses on solving the food, pharmaceutical, and fabric shortages by producing a super mind-enhancing strain of skunk-ganja. 

It won’t be enough to save everyone, but then there is a visit from an Earthling who brings a conscious device. It has to be hidden somewhere and theirs is the chosen planet. The Yogini conducts an ancient invocation which results in pregnancy induced by outcasts demi-gods. The Oracle reveals a more damning prophecy. Then Nirvana, still not realized, but an infant is the last hope.
