The discovery of their computerized brain chip was much more than what Dr. Ben and Grandpa had realized. It was soon complicated by demonic foreign agents' violent efforts to steal the chip. What followed generated extreme suspense, tyranny, foreign intrigue, kidnapping, murder, and failure. After all, this exceptional technology would not only cure Alzheimer's disease, but it would permit anyone with an implanted computerized chip to communicate mentally with computers worldwide.
The U.S. government soon realized the intricacies of this technology, in the wrong hands, would be devastating to mankind. As a consequence, the U.S. was forced to take action to prevent the extraordinary.
The balance of this book is written depicting a future time frame beginning sometime after 2020 AD. But, our world's current events and fighting in the Middle East makes this book a must listen. This book is about available technology and world political and religious affairs at that time. However, it does attempt to reference history as accurately as possible, including suitable validating references wherever possible. The future technologies described in this book are exciting and are believed, by the authors, to be viable technologies in 2020 AD with numerous actual and referenced examples to bear this out.
There are approximately 14 major characters in this book played on a worldwide stage, from various points in the USA, Canada, France, England, Rome, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan and they include: Dr. Ben, Mom, Dad, Grampa, Momo, the four Island Sisters, Dr. Smith (AKA Dr. Hijazi), Tom Watson, Bob Evans, the Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Amahadan, The Pope, and Grampa‘s old friend Dick, etc.
Ben (who grows up as a technologically curious kid, an early high school and university graduate with degrees in medicine and engineering), together with his Dad and Grandfather, forms a new, somewhat underfunded, high-technology company, whose charter is to build computerized brain implants to extend human awareness and capability. They obtain initial funding from a government study contract, develop an appropriate business plan and start their business.
The product this company will produce is quickly recognized by certain extremist religious figures as a tool they can use to advance their worldwide pursuit of their Middle Eastern religion. They complete a strategy to utilize this technology for the advancement of their religion, but their misdeeds in acquiring the devices backfires.
Through twist and turn of the plot, our heroes become enveloped in the dark intrigue and disaster of political and religious tyranny and monocratic power from which they may be finally saved, only to find their prospering company is about to become the target of a hostile takeover with potentially equal despotic consequences.
The first few pages of our book reflect the current period in the life of the main character, Benjamin, later known as Dr. Ben.
