Far into the future, many of humankind’s everyday problems have been solved. We no longer suffer from overpopulation or a lack of natural resources. Our colonization of the solar system and our utilization of robotic workers has solved all that.
And yet, embedded in the human psyche is a disorderly constant fact: emotion. The everyday rational decisions we make are so often askew with emotion and, as this tale unfolds, we come up against a heart-breaking decision, one which we had thought to hand over to a robot like Chen. But does that make handling emotion any easier?
This tale unfolds with pace and grip. The listener is caught in an awe-inspiring journey to Earth II – a trip that carries with it huge responsibilities and one encompassing hidden doubt. If the robot cannot absorb and resolve the emotional conflict, then the whole expansion of humankind into the universe is threatened. In exploring resolution to that doubt, the author plunges us into our emotional selves and highlights our everlasting uncertainties.
