Chalfont, PA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Can our consciousness and sense of self endure beyond our physical bodies? As technology evolves can mental immortality become a reality?
These are two of the major questions raised by married authors Thomas P. and Nancy Wise in their new novel The Borealis Genome. Advances in genetic engineering combine with artificial intelligence to create a disturbing world where the minds of the few control those of the masses.
The creation of a weaponized virus allows individuals to upload their minds into the bodies of others creating an army of mental zombies. Tim and his fiancé must find the source of this technology and destroy it before their world completely unravels.
“My work is deeply rooted in technology and how it will affect the future,” said Thomas. “My wife chose to focus on our children while supporting me in my professional endeavors, but she is not very interested in technology. That is why we decided to write the book together creating a sci-fi thriller that would appeal to the casual reader and scientific mind alike.”
