Author's note: One of the great enjoyments of creative writing for me is exploring the possible evolution of both technology and morality. I have kept the sci-fi in this novel "hard" to the best of my ability, tying it to actual physics and technology where possible (my foundation for wild extrapolations!). I am especially fascinated by what's currently a missing science, the physical basis for consciousness. On this topic, sincere thanks to physicist Roger Penrose for his groundbreaking observations and conjectures.
