In rare lucid moments you see that you are enslaved. You tell yourself that The Service is a helpful interface providing your mind with continual aid and stimulation, but you know it’s a lie.
Patrick Whiteside can help you. He doesn’t require much: An open mind. Determination. The ability to make sacrifices.
Let Whiteside help you.
The Service is an internet like system biologically hardwired into a person’s brain. While it is considered by most to be essential to modern human life, for Peter Chardin The Service is the source of a special type of anxiety: His own free will feels like an illusion, dictated by the algorithms of the program.
Enter Patrick Whiteside, a genius inventor and leader of a movement that believes The Service is an outdated method for human betterment. When Peter and his friends find themselves locked in Whiteside’s remote compound it becomes clear Whiteside’s idea of “human betterment” is the delusion of a person lost in their own narcissism and madness. But what are Whiteside’s plans for humanity? And what if he succeeds?
