Overview

Tim Collins, science editor for Future Technology magazine was hired by DARPA to record the merging of new technologies, the marriage of matter and anti-matter, the quest that would lead to the conformation of the theory of super-symmetry and the key to creation. Like a scribe in the days of the ancient Pharaohs, his task would be to document the activation of the most complicated machine the human mind had ever devised- Fermilab's Tevatron…the most powerful proton particle accelerator in the world.

At least, that was his intention. Had he any idea of what really lay ahead of him, he would have run as far and as fast as his spindly legs could have carried him. Never looking back. Never stopping to catch his breath. Never once turning his head to chance a glimpse of whatever it was that was making those God-awful moaning sounds behind him. And when he could run no more, he’d walk. When he could walk no farther, he’d crawl. If nothing else, he’d just fall forward. Anything that would put one more inch between him and images that would dwell in his mind and haunt his memory forever.

Truly, the light of discovery was burning brightly at Fermilab, but some things are better left in darkness. Some doors should never be opened; they should be bolted shut, FOREVER. That giant accelerator not only unlocked the secrets of matter and energy, it punched a hole through the very fabric of space and time. What emerged from that hole was not of this world, maybe not even of this universe.

The trouble with having a skeleton key is that you can never be sure of what’s standing behind the door it unlocks. And as that door creeps open, you may just find that no matter how hard you push, something on the other side pushes back-just a little bit harder. And there’s nothing you can do to close it again.

Here then are the events as they unfolded, as Tim Collins recorded them before the demons were unleashed and the darkness fell.
 
1st Corinthians 1:19 “For it is written. I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

Meet the Author

Randy Benjamin has been a computer consultant for 35 years. His first venture into writing was in 1995 when he sold several articles to Music Row magazine in Nashville, TN. The series detailed how computers, the Internet, and digital technology were changing the way that music was being created. Over the next several years, writing began to play a much larger roll in his life.
In 1998 he started a newspaper column called “The Internet Guide” which was syndicated to 23 newspapers in three Midwestern states. This column spawned two books, “The Internet Guide Handbook” and “More of the Internet Guide.” The Internet Guide ran until 2007 when he decided that he’d rather concenstrate on writing novels.
In March of 2007, he closed his consulting business and wrote the last of 471 Internet Guide articles. He turned 64 on New Years Eve of 2010, and lives on a small lake in southern Indiana with a dog named Mufeoso.

    Me again

    Well, I just finished this book and dont really know where to start in describing my feelings. Okay, heres as good a place as any... RUN DONT WALK, RUN!!! This was quite possibly the worst book I have ever held, much less read! I have finished it and I dont even want my money back, I would just like to have that portion of my life returned that I feel has been stolen! Heres why...

    The author(?) Goes into too great of detail in trying to explain his subject (which by the way is quantum physics, string theory, etc...) just a short paragraph or two would be adequate. But no, instead he feels the need to write the preface to a graduate level textbook. Ugh!

    Also, he will change from speaking in the third person to speaking in the first person all within the same sentence! No quote marks makes determining the current speaker next to, if not, impossible!

    Enough of my rantings (I could go on indefinitly) just trust a seasoned book lover RUN away from this poorly gathered grouping of words!
