The sudden union of two brilliant young scientists, Pania, a beautiful native New Zealand Maori girl, and Jason, an Air Force Academy graduate from a small Texas town, catapults them on an adventure that results in a new technology that brings both joy and fear to the world. Because of their work, the Earth learns undeniably, that we are not alone. The accidental capture by a U.S. deep space sensor of the "life spark" of someone from another world leads to the return of humans to Earth. Follow the science and the politics that surround the most amazing realities the world has ever encountered. Delve into the intellectual and spiritual aspects of realizing where we are on the evolutionary timeline and getting a glimpse of what our future history can and might be like. Feel the passion for each other and for the dreams shared by the fearless young couple as they become the world's two most influential people. Underlying "our" return to Earth is a marvelous reality. Most people wonder why we believe in an afterlife, at least we all hope for it. It is why so many of us embrace our religions, our search for answers even knowing they are beyond our ability to understand. We learn this is not a delusion. We are not simply looking for comfort as we contemplate an inevitable end to life. We are shown that what we all feel deep within us is real. Seeing the door opened to the greatest mystery of all, Pania and Jason yearn to learn more. Believing that life itself is engrained in the fabric of space and time, and yearning to better understand the linkage they believe binds us all, they go to the extreme for the opportunity to look past the open door. As their adventure intensifies, Earth's people are left to contemplate age old questions about the true nature of life itself in an entirely new light.
