“Well, the qualia, which Jerry is handing to me now, is a device that is, essentially, an artificial corpus callosum. The corpus callosum is the 250 million axons all grouped together that connect the left and right hemispheres of the human brain, allowing the hemispheres to communicate with one another. Most people don’t realize it, because normal brains have a fully functioning corpus callosum, but each hemisphere of the brain is independently capable of keeping a person alive. “
What I expected:
I expected a book about meta-humans and the future, as this is what I know David Simpson for. I have read his previous books and been completely absorbed by them, so I didn’t expect anything less from this, his next series..
What it was:
A group of business associates working on the next stage of AI human interface present to an audience about their next robotic development. Then something astounding happens, broadcast across Aug-glasses to the populous! This book was so intriguing to me, it kept me wondering who was going to do what, next. This is a good book for those who like stories about the development of the meta human. It is different in that it describes the conflict behind the evolution of humanity to what we think could be the next level of evolution. This book could help humanity avoid the pitfalls of ego, once we know what they are, in relation to AI-human interfaces! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole of this book, it didn’t give any hint to me of where it was leading me. And the ending left me waiting for the next book. It was a real conundrum! And I can’t wait. I shall definitely be recommending this book to my friends. Make sure that you read it, David Simpson is an upcoming author of the genre. Keep an eye on him and his books!
I received an e-ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
