Set in a time when those who haven’t been born yet are worshiped as gods, two anthropologists travel through a synthetic black hole and uncover the ruins of an alien race that inexplicably vanished long ago. More
On the planet of Euchenor, it’s believed that a future generation known as The God Generation will save the planet. This belief system, called Deep Think, relies on a presently non-existent technology that will have the power to bring everything from the past back to life. The day-to-day happenings of Euchenorians revolve around Deep Think and all work done on Euchenor is meant to enable those of the future to create their redeeming technology. Two anthropologists and devout Deep Thinkers, Whaton Lewit and Ioma Isvray depart Euchenor for Antiope, an unexplored world whose ancient inhabitants mysteriously disappeared. Once on Antiope, Whaton finds peace by accepting his future and living for the present moment. After discovering that the ancient Antiopians fled to the beginning of the universe where time began, Ioma becomes obsessed with the Antiopian religion and cultivates a following that defies Deep Think. Meanwhile back on Euchenor, a message from the future is deciphered casting doubt on the technological progress assured by Deep Think. This new doubt results in a mass exodus to Antiope. Those who remain true to Euchenor fear the new way of life on Antiope and seek to destroy the planet and all who threaten The God Generation they believe will save everyone.
