A Modern Myth About Human Identity

by Nora Brown , Cate Austin and Stella Dunn

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Accompany five friends from around the globe on their adventure to find the essence of human identity. Bridging the gap from ancient philosophical concepts to cutting edge neuroscience, "the iT principle" addresses the question of identity in an increasingly global society and shines a light on who we really are. Beware, this many layered modern myth might challenge the way you think.
Description
Gone are the slow changes of the past. It is time for humanity to take an evolutionary leap. The basic life 'software' we have run encourages a linear view, that everything has a beginning and end, that we are nothing more than our bodies and minds. But the evolutionary 'upgrade' at the heart of this dynamic novel will awaken us to the exciting broader cycle we are a part of. Enlightened human action will help us escape monovision, embrace multi vision and even grasp humanity's immortal identity. To initiate this process, the four Fundamental Forces of Nature materialize on Earth and select a group of five men and women to test the upgrade. These five, a fusion scientist, programming wizard, film director, lawyer, and medical aid worker, hail from India, Egypt, California, Switzerland and central Africa. They meet one evening at a gathering in California. Drawn by the pull of an uncanny affinity and a tragic event they witness that night, the protagonists will carry their bond through the years, as each undergoes an adventure, crisis, or journey that leaves them transformed... upgraded. When the five reunite a decade later, they create a declaration to serve as the basis for sharing globally the insights they have discovered. This gripping novel ­ part science fiction, part psychological realism ­ is both a suspenseful page-turner and an innovative philosophical jaunt. Yurit's lively, compelling characters capture the reader, as they present a fresh outlook for the millennium.
