Description : Meet Agata “Gate” Carson, a shy bookseller with a quirky sense of humor. She loves to dance, she writes the script for the Skydwellers computer game, and all she dreams about is a normal, ordinary relationship. Yet nothing is normal and ordinary after she crosses paths with Rob Florin, the front man of the Trespassers. He’s megatons of attractiveness, and apart from selling millions of records, he is on a mission to save the Vortex world, a perilous mission where Gate is the key element. For the Vortex—the world of the Skydwellers game she invented—is actually real and in danger. And so they start, from love in Prague to war in the Carpathians, thwarting Kee-Axe Dark Empire emissaries as they work on the Last Battle mission. From plasma-ball fi ghts on the Mont-Tremblant road to the gloomy Paris basement where Lord K’Ramol of KADE tries to torture Gate into cooperation. Yet she cannot afford surrender, for if she yields, the Empire will ruin the seven-suns world, and Archer’s sacrifice would be in vain too. Nor can she afford death, for her beloved would not survive either, or so the Prophecy goes. And will the Skydwellers help them this time?
Description : Thousands of years ago in ancient India, Yogis probed the atom with supernormal powers called siddhis. What they saw was subatomic particles as vortices of energy. That insight gave rise to maya the illusion of forms. Anticipating Einstein, Yogis realised everything is energy. There is no material substance underlying our world. They knew the bedrock of reality is mind and consciousness. That is endorsed today at the cutting edge of quantum physics. Applied to modern physics, the vortex shows how we are deluded by materialism. The particles and forces of nature are explained by the vortex of energy and physics becomes easy to understand for everybody. Predicting the most important scientific discovery of the late 20th century, The Vortex Theory could be the complete theory predicted by Stephen Hawking at the end of A Brief History of Time. The Vortex Theory provides a bridge between science and spirituality. At last we have a sound scientific theory to back belief in non material worlds. A new understanding of Life and Spirit could take us to fresh frontiers of discovery because it may be space is full of Life.
