The Summit is the first book in the Elysium's Passage series involving a British philosopher from London named Dr James Philips, who has a near fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes. While his body remains in a coma, he awakens into an altered state of consciousness before encountering two mysterious beings with very different perspectives on the nature of reality. Before returning to his body in London, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life's meaning and purpose, far beyond anything he previously believed, or could believe. An engaging and surreal adventure, with intimations of romance exploring the most important questions regarding the Passage that leads beyond this life towards our ultimate destiny. The Plains of Elysium is described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiacal afterlife reserved for heroes. The Summit is not just about a hero or a mountain expedition, but a fall into the mysterium of the unknown universe.
