en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback
Professor Rachel Buddywell, Chair of the world-wide Commission, finds her own life story enmeshed in her revealing humanity's 14th paradigm shift - there is no "inexplicable", just the "unexplained" as science encompasses the traditional realms of theology and philosophy. Her whole life has fashioned her for the unique task she confronts as Commission Chair. The influences that made her are commonplace, yet have produced a woman who is not. As a cognitive scientist, aided by presenters in anthropology, neuro-science, zoology and psychiatry, she weaves, amidst the conflicting objectives of her fellow Commissioners, the disparate scientific disciplines into a finished tapestry. Delegates and the Commissioners find the implications of today's science simultaneously thrilling and horrifying - but the science exist, so the genie is out of the bottle. Her unconventional love unbolts her life's lynchpins, to seemingly mock her professional endeavours. This love confronts her work in the Commission and the core of who she is. The entwining of her professional life and her private life shapes her Commission's monumental report. The story blends her struggles to unite tensions from the Commissioners and pressures from Delegates to identify universal human traits to be inculcated into human clones. Some Delegates cannot see the new way of the world as it is now much less as it will be tomorrow. At the same time, her life story twists and turns so unexpectedly as to be unimaginable, except that it happens. Come and immerse yourself in Rachel's life - both public and private.

Notă biografică

David Lucas is a sixty-four-year-old lawyer, who also manages the Self Managed Family Office ( He is intrigued by the bewildering array of answers to the question "why?" that humans have given over 130,000 plus years. The contradictions that are inherent in being human-ingenious, naïve, stupid, creative, devilishly cunning, messy, kind, cruel, perverse, emotional, unpredictable, logical, self-judging, self-excusing, drama-loving and so drama-creating, altruistic, pitiless-means that the stories to be told of humans are limitless. His legal practice allows him to experience the best and the worst of us. He was born in Fern Tree Gully, Melbourne, is an avid follower of Brisbane Lions in the Australian Football League, and lives by the beach in Freshwater, Sydney, with his partner, Cath, and dog, Summer.
