A robotics engineer by the name of Garrett Lyda attempts to salvage a troubled relationship with his son Bryce after discovering that Bryce became the subject of an experiment on mind control; but the government sponsor is more interested in the engineer's studies on robotics and willing to do whatever it takes to recruit him to replicate a human brain.
This is the first of eight interconnected stories about the future of consciousness, from its use in machines to the quest to understand its role in the universe. Humanity tackles one singularity only to discover that there is still many challenges to address. Conscious machines are only the beginning.
