By Ray Hammond

We are trying to mimic the way human consciousness may have emerged over the four billion years of biological evolution on this planet. In another quarter of a century we think the global networks will have grown sufficiently to allow real emergence to take place…

Thomas Tye’s phenomenal financial success is due to a secret known only to a very few at the top of his corporation.

But the monopolistic and increasingly bizarre activities of the mighty Tye Corporation have caught the attention of the UNISA – the United Nations’ international security agency – and of famous biographer Haley Voss who wants to write an exposé of the suprisingly youthful-looking tycoon.

Commercial spying has reached new dimensions and the World Bank is concerned that, unrestrained, the Tye Corporation activities could destabilize the world’s financial markets.

Then Thomas Tye announces that using a wholly new, benign and sustainable satellite technology he can change the world’s weather for the benefit of all. As a demonstration, he promises to bring rain to end decades of drought in Ethiopia and he asks the people of the world to join him in delivering the world’s biggest act of philanthropy.

But the output from the satellite technology is exciting the world’s super-dense information networks in ways nobody could have foreseen and, as the UN closes in on a corporation with more power than any single nation, a new entity begins to emerge which changes everybody’s plans…
