Ever since the horrors of 9/11, Brian had been lost.
His quest for purpose led him to France in the spring of 2003. There, everything changed when he joined with fellow seekers-Katrina, a German physicist; Hadji, an Indian engineer; Alia, a Brazilian pilot; and Qui Jen, a Japanese ninja-as part of the Holistic Group dedicated to the transformation of the planet through the creation of Critical Mass.
As foretold in ancient texts, Critical Mass is both a beautifully simple and incomprehensibly complex concept for change. To achieve this rare state, 3,511 people must be trained to come together in a single thought. If this can be accomplished, that one thought will manifest as a new reality, a self-aware planet, a Global Brain.
Brian is challenged to accept the responsibilities of the Uniter, the one who would come and start the world anew. But the Monarchists, a group with considerably less philanthropic goals, have vowed to stop at nothing to ensure that their vision is the one that comes to pass.
The first group to achieve Critical Mass will win the planet.
In order to realize his spiritual potential to save humanity, Brian and his crew travel the world in search of knowledge to use the Tree of Life, an ancient map of consciousness. Can they achieve their goals before the Monarchists achieve theirs?
Only time and fate will tell ...
