Goshen, New York (PRWEB) March 08, 2016
Surgeon, Dr. Mario Loomis, writes young adult fiction about the mind and soul. Dr. Loomis has operated in third world missions, done brain and stem cell research, and cared for thousands of patients over the years. In his youth, he worked as a cowboy and hitchhiked through South America, seeing the connectedness of humanity through the eyes of the poor. Drawing on this background, Dr. Loomis explores the outer reaches of science, hidden powers of the mind, and the reality of the human soul. His smart thrillers immerse readers in the conflict between good and evil, affirming that good ultimately prevails, as long as the mind is free.
His premiere novel is Essence, Assault on the Mind, (2015). Goshen, NY, InVivo Press. Review copies available upon request.
With over a million downloads, eTelepathy is the most popular app of the year. Using technology designed to help quadriplegics communicate, it creates a wireless interface between a person’s brain and their smartphone. But once downloaded, it also allows for ongoing subliminal influences from the app’s creator, even when not in use. Racing to halt the onset of widespread thought control, FBI agent John Rocco finds that bringing in this perpetrator will be more challenging than he could imagine. From string theory physics and hidden dimensions to premonitions and near-death experiences, he will need to understand the transcendent nature of the mind in order to stop the imminent corruption of free thought in millions.
An engaging young adult novel, Essence makes complex scientific and philosophical concepts accessible and entertaining to readers of all ages. Through a gripping conflict between good and evil, the reader is drawn into Einstein’s theory of relativity, hidden dimensions, string theory physics, mind-brain dualism, the reality of the soul, and the nature of free will. Following the protagonist’s journey from cynical bitterness to trusting love, the reader sees the possibility of certitude regarding the meaning of life: the order and beauty underlying all things.
