Puramore - The Lute of Pythagoras
Mankind has only two choices after science and technology renders the species utterly obsolete and incapable of survival in the future. One choice compels humanity to submit body and soul to a sinister supernatural civilisation, whilst the other impels mankind to submit to a utopian bioengineering paradigm. The first choice results in extinction of the singularity of the human soul, whilst the second choice leaves it infinitely free and self-determined.
British Army Captain George Smythe spills his blood for The Cause before he has a conscious thought as to either its true nature or his role as its leader in the distant future. His mortal and immortal enemy nearly slays him whilst he’s on holiday in Mexico touring pre-Columbian archeological sites. If not for his rescue from death by a Nagual shaman, who then realized his potential to wield Puramore for the thirteenth and last time.
General Sir George Smythe, Team Alpha, Juan and their quantum computer battle Wingtip, an avatar of China's first emperor, and spirit forces at his command to turn the tide of mankind's survival dilemma decidedly in their favour. In order to prevail against their mortal and immortal foe, they marshal all the intellectual resources at their disposal to overcome Wingtip's spiritual advantage. Time is of the essence since their foe is on the brink of delivering the final coup d'état to mankind.
In the end, only the wielder of Puramore possesses an advantage over humanity's ancient nemesis. Will George Smythe prove himself worthy to acquire the Divine Blade?
