About the Book

2017-04-19: Snippet.
Few noticed how it all began. A speck of light here. A flicker over there. Back then the stars held few attractions. We’d never go there. “Too far and too dangerous,” they said. “Let’s work to reclaim and rebuild this world all over again. Humanity fell short but we shall not. Trust us.” Strange how the smartest of the smart, our very own silicon progeny, should request something as nebulous as trust. Their need, how can I put this, to not only have emotions but to also have feelings about those same emotions. Then again, bots don’t do feelings. Everyone knew that. How wrong we were.
