Overview
A perfect storm is occurring. Human consciousness is being stretched as the planet rapidly approaches 10 billion people and resources are strained to the breaking point. At this intense time, there is a shift in the consciousness of humanity, that leaves them more immune to propaganda. Suddenly everything begins to rattle apart as old systems break down and new ones are born. Almost as if this novel predicted the revolutions spreading across North Africa.
Description
An armed force struggles up the rocky face of the Himalayas, their forces dwindling, as a deafening drone fills the universe. Its source? a group of transcending monks. The soldiers are being rattled apart, as an ancient battle is waged within the electromagnetic field's constituting their minds. The last remaining one, the one they call The Soldier, is barely able to squeeze his trigger finger as the monk's chants rattle the universe. As the monks lie dead, a vibration, as if their chants had fractured the universe still vibrates through the air as the nauseated Soldier gasps for breaths. ...

The soldiers are being rattled apart, as an ancient battle is waged within the electromagnetic field's constituting their minds. The last remaining one, the one they call The Soldier, is barely able to squeeze his trigger finger as the monk's chants rattle the universe. As the monks lie dead, a vibration, as if their chants had fractured the universe still vibrates through the air as the nauseated Soldier gasps for breaths. ... Ravi Shyamalan learns at her father's funeral that she has been given the Nobel Prize for Economics. Two months later, she finds herself in a whirlwind of attention, set to give a speech on economics at the famed Oxford Debate Club. As she begins her talk, a ... vibration ... begins to rattle within her. She finds that only speaking from the heart will relieve the pressure she's feeling within. She is pushed to launch into an appeal for humanity to shift the deepest rudders of our current course. She paints visions of possibility for our collective future. Her words are idolized by some, pleasing to many ... and therefore dangerous to an extremely wealthy, and stunningly powerful few. Her visions are of compassion and justice. The most powerful resources in the world narrow their eyes and wince at each of her speeches. This MUST stop! When these powers tighten their fist, Ravi escapes to find herself provided with information that can change the world, inside information about a crime of vast proportion – an end to democracy. Will Ravi survive? Will we? Find out in 2012 The Awakening.
