Sinopse

The Imago is the beautiful last stage of another miracle of evolution that aspires above all else to transcend its own watery universe and to fly beyond into a form of heaven, just as we do ours. In the real scheme of things, the Imago must be every bit as important as we think we are and possibly more so, in that it is closer to its ultimate evolution than we are.The same would apply to those arrived from Ochre, whose sole reason for existence becomes as startlingly clear as our need to catch up on the likes of Imago, and further stir evolution within ourselves by singing our own songs of aspiration, simply because we can.Grace Reid celebrates being thirty years old with the gusto typical of any woman who has spent the last twelve years raising a son without his father, while being discredited as a dangerously insane pariah who can’t seem to decide which species she belongs to. But then, it was never going to be easy playing the part of a lone superpower facing down all others that play major and bit parts in the re-incarnation of Global Corruption they would like to call tomorrow.Grace was too naive to remember that she needed to occasionally show her fangs to maintain a fearful image, but it seems that even virtual alien relationships can grow cracks wide enough to be open to abuse.Grace is offered her own route to virtual immortality and also immunity from the torment of deluded demons, who have constantly demanded that she deliver the impossibility of an all inclusive tomorrow, regardless of Destiny’s timeless and meticulously laid plans.The final book of The Catalysis Trilogy further exposes the delusion that we were ever as important as we thought we were in this tiny section of universe that we will most likely just populate temporarily. Destiny will decide our longevity and will not be guided by merit alone, which in our case is probably just as well. So our conflict has always been between the two species that we have evolved to become and which can no longer live as one.We were guilty of looking at evolution in isolation and not as an agent of an often wilful Destiny that doesn’t always apply logic. It does seem that our flawed and therefore inferior factions continue to exert implausible influences over what shape Destiny should ultimately give tomorrow. Such an unlikely symbiosis suggests that our survival was never going to be an automatic gift, and that the odds are now being stacked one side.Just as the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” was unambiguously answered in Catalysis - Book 1, we are further reminded that we are far from being the masters of our own destiny.Soshyant is the untimely son of Grace and Berhane and has inherited his parents gift of almost limitless mental travel that could also be a form of genetic insanity. He can see and then enter the time between Planck Frames or Staccato Frames, as the Spoke Artificial Intelligences, who are his only friends, call them. Soshyant no longer considers himself a child and has grown protective of his mother, who he prefers to keep at home.Home is a giant alien star ship twenty two kilometres across and only recently arrived from Ochre, or so they say. They call it Bee Lon Zarite but people just call it Good Speed.The problem with Soshyant is that he was born before his time, or so his father said. But even at eighteen and apparently autistic, Grace Reid was not someone to be denied what she wanted.Catalysis and Ochre condensed the history of a minute fraction of space time only 50,000 lightyears across to give the human perspective of it. Imago is the splash that now takes it further into the universe, with real and flawed people on board.
