200 years ago a life form of unfathomable proportions appeared on Earth : a Tree whose roots spread through the Earth, pulling all life into it, leaving the rest of the planet barren and dead. Now, many generations later, Marco Young must journey to this Forest to find a cure for his dying son. Along the way he uncovers long hidden truths about his heretical father and the true nature of humanity.“Look at this Tree. What Life could possibly have given rise to this colossus? How did it come about, and from where did it originate? Were its genes engineered by the A.D. scientists? Did its seed arrive here from another planet? Or was it an appendage of the Earth, a retaliation, an answer that had laid dormant for 4 billion years?“Whatever it is, you cannot deny its omnipotence. It is progenitor to countless species, hundreds of impenetrable forms of perception. With its canopy it encompasses every aspect of reality. This Forest, in its entirety is an ambassador from the chaotic Universe. We will never understand her just as we will never fully grasp the cosmos. We will penetrate neither and must merely be content to bask for our lives in stupid wonder.“But you…you have chosen to bathe in the blood of a God, and will see everything as she does. You’ll be emptied of the things that make you who you are, and replaced with the entirety of the Universe.
