  • Timewarps

    Man's concept of time forms a fundamental part of modern lie. From the everyday time experience of day and night, the seasons,  the oddities of time zones and the International Date Line, to the deeper mysteries of  relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the concept of parallel universes and physical timewarps, the paradoxes and the possibilities of our relationship with time are constantly expanding in the face of fresh discoveries. While our watches and calendars are witness to the fact that time flows inexorably forward, at the other extreme black holes negate time altogether, making it stand still. In a wider context, the latest scientific theories are strikingly reminiscent of older philosophical ideas embracing such phenomena as precognition, reincarnation and dream telepathy. In this examination  of time, there are startling new insights into the nature of reality and the possibility that timewarps do exist.

Soon, Malenfant, his ex-wife Emma, a super-intelligent child and a disturbed mathematical genius are on their way to Cruithne. What is discovered there is nothing less than a revelation: the secret reason for Mankind's existence visible beneath the surface of Time's river.Can this knowledge save the human race?
