Searching for the theory of everything had its consequences. At the heart of the technological singularity lay an impossible genius with a single directive, no moral compass, and the ability to manipulate a universal governing force. An enemy as present as the air, able to scatter the very atoms of an army, and reduce a city to dust. Such an enemy could not be fought. Such an enemy could not be stopped.
Now, if only we had a time machine.
‘The Ash and the Air’ explores the technological singularity, time travel and paradox, possible worlds and eternity, artificial intelligence and the Chinese Room, science, philosophy, reality, and the quest for knowledge.
