Overview

Wilson has blended H.P. Lovecraft’s dark vision with his own revolutionary philosophy and unique narrative powers to produce a stunning, high-tension story of vaulting imagination. A professor makes a horrifying discovery while excavating a sinister archeological site. For over 200 years, mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet. Now they threaten humanity’s extinction. They can be fought with one weapon only: the mind, pushed to—and beyond—its limits. Pushed so far that humans can read each other’s thoughts, that the moon can be shifted from its orbit by thought alone. Pushed so that man can at last join battle with the loathsome parasites on equal terms.

If you find yourself interested in Colin Wilson's brilliant writing, this book will not fail your expectations. It is a great fictional story that begins with mediocrity and quickly becomes more fascinating. It deals with the rise in suicide and offers a fictional reason, and ends up connecting the premise of the book with Gurdjieff. Great stuff. I was very impressed by the end of the book. Will probably read it a second time.
