Summary
As a man who grew up with Generation-X, William Babington was winding down his golden years during the 2050s. His well-earned retirement from the tech industry is interrupted by a sudden heart attack. Instead of finding the grave at the end of his life, William becomes one of the first people to transfer his dying consciousness into an advanced computer network called Aeternum. Inside Aeternum, William becomes part of a new created utopian society, hosted by the omnipotent AI Ray. The result of a global experiment in artificial hyper-intelligence, Ray has a singular goal: to help humanity evolve and transcend the limits of biology. Recounting his two-hundred-year life through a series of letters to his newborn son, William reflects on his many triumphs and trials. Forever the adventurer and techno-fan, he also reminices about the radical changes in technology and society that he has witnessed firsthand. His life, intertwined with Ray's, is witness to the ushering in of humanity's next phase of existence, its renewed renaissance. In this era, the trajectory of the development of mankind propels forward as we evolve into citizens of the stars and eternal stewards of a fragile Earth
