There are books that after you read it, you want to see what other have thought about it; this is one. I see a lot have been said but none really give any credance to human's paranormal abilities. There is reality out side of the realm of scientific methods but not explored. Why is this so when there have been indisputable evidence that it exist? So the author weave a story about our latent abilities with aliens who master technology. A masterfull story that leaves ripple of thoughts in one mind for days.

This was a brilliantly crafted book that uses modern concepts explained in different ways to make connections with reality. The plot twists are provocative and interesting.

In regards to a negative review I read on this same book, I think the gramatical mistakes and constant complaints about difficulty show that this is a book that is meant to be read by those with a strong footing in science and philosophy. You should aviod this book if you're the sort of person that has a problem with books with "too few pictures".

When I read this book I wasn't yet distracted by girls or pimples. I always felt that no one had won the right to use words like always or forever. Reading this book showed me that my life is only partly visible and that space had room enough for many-many- events to exist in the same place at the same time. Things draw to a natural conclusion and so do we!
