The Travelers - Evacuation

by Joseph C. Duda

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Two interwoven tales affect the destiny of a planetary population: a world leader's tenacious and concealed reliance on extrasensory abilities to govern a planet jeopardizes her position and challenges the sanctity of all she holds dear; generations later, her great-great-great granddaughter's personal search for courage pits her obvious physical accomplishments against her own unspoken paranormal gifts—the true source of her talent. When scientists verify that the planet has a rapidly decaying orbit and within three generations will be uninhabitable, Senior World Councilor Tevaha, against all conventional wisdom and a covert high-level conspiracy, utilizes intuitive and psychic gifts, understandings of the Laws of the Universe, and a benevolent other-dimensional group of mentors to generate a potential solution to her planet's crisis. Five generations later, Tevaha's namesake descendent Teva, a young superstar architect, devotes every waking moment to the furious design of twenty-four Spaceports—receptacles for ships destined to evacuate the entire population. Mission successfully accomplished, Teva realizes her professional drive has left voids of family, relationship, and emotion—an awareness that hits her hard when she boards the last vacating ship and finds she has no more career and, worse, no one to turn to. The stories of the two heroines counterpoint one another chapter by chapter, merging when Teva discovers a method to seek Tevaha's advice on a pressing issue and finds herself ironically positioned to dramatically alter the existence of the very future in which she exists. Similar to Lem's Solaris and Crichton's Sphere, where reality manifests through unconscious memories and emotions, The Travelers - Evacuation demonstrates how thoughts and intentions may be consciously applied to create reality, though sometimes with unpredictable, startling, or humorous results. The challenges facing Tevaha and Teva could appeal to avid science fiction and metaphysical readers alike—those seeking not only entertainment, but answers, or at least possible solutions, to similar, perplexing personal and global situations confronting us presently.
