Harbinger’s Child: A Novel
[Interstellar Sci-fi / Literary / Philosophy / Mysticism]
After decades of struggling, the broken last of humanity barely escapes an inexplicable cataclysmic threat and wanders in the darkness of space for blind hope and a desolate future. They eventually find themselves on a journey for ancient wisdom, long forgotten civilizations and a mythical planet called Earth, yet the cycle of endless oppression, destruction and fear is in pursuit. And in the end, perhaps there remains nothing, not time, not memories, not history, not even a planet.
Takatsu's approach on the well traversed theme is a haunting literary and deeply metaphysical experience where the interstellar novel's grim and traumatized characters search the cosmos for answers to the greater age old questions on spirituality, the human condition, mortality, history, myth, esoteric traditions, transcendence, higher dimensions and our place in the stars.
This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best.
Night, sleep, death and the stars.
– Walt Whitman
