Humans are thought to have the innate mental ability to transmit information to one another called telepathy. In his new book, author Angelo Gualtieri brings to life a science fiction adventure with DNA-enhanced humans and their ability to communicate through telepathy. The Gates of Olympus is an intriguing, futuristic novel on genetic engineering and the survival of the human race. It is also a fascinating study of human behavior in various interesting and unusual situations.
Set in 2048 when human genetic modification has been made possible although only for a short span of time due to the protests from religious and human rights sects. With their creation, because of suspicions of setting up a master race, persecution of these so called New People has begun and many have hidden their identity to blend with the crowd.
This scientific endeavor has bred the principal characters, Tony Devlin and Imogen Delany. Tony is the team leader of a research group at a University tasked with predicting the climate changes that would follow from global warming. His boss, Professor Alastair Repton, the rector of the University, not a new person, but a very tough and totally honest man and Tony’s mentor since the early days when Tony was still a graduate student, is a strong and necessary supporter of Tony and his team.
A live computer called Elysia has been developed and was introduced to the University. With a much larger than human brain, Elysia is capable of self initiated programming and far outstrips conventional computers in computing power. The computer has developed a climate forecasting model which predicts the available land space for a viable human population to be much below present and future population densities. This requires study into how humanity can be reorganized to remain a viable, civilized and societal species not in danger of extinction.
Extraterrestrial navigations to find a place to relocate humans are impracticable with existing technology. If all else fails, extreme conditions will result. Survival of the fittest, as the law of nature dictates, is the only recourse.
With the problems faced, Tony needs to persuade Governments and their peoples of the dangers and plan for this difficult future. He needs to recruit people like himself to assist in an endeavor for concerted effort never before attempted. The priority is to save the human race from impending chaos and extinction. Hitch is, the New People are scattered the world over and an assembly leading to the discovery of their suppressed identity would be construed ill. They have long covered their individuality and coming out could endanger their lives.
A mind-blowing, transcendental story, Gualtieri abducts readers to time-travel to a whole new dimension of humans with telepathic capabilities in The Gates of Olympus.
