Project Revelations (Revelations) is my latest fiction I am developing started in summer 2011.
Main articles: Plot Background and Summary of Project Revelations
In a world similar to our own, but accelerated to the point where excess information is so over abundant that, fact and fiction are indistinguishable. Agent X208 Codename Akira is intelligence operative, an ‘Agent’ of the Network. The Network's job is to supply clients with the facts and predictions. It is comprised of many entities as an global organization working with the new-aged governments, businesses, and the corporations it is comprised of. Akira's investigation of Doctor Hans Mikael's work and his sudden disappearance leads Akira and his team to uncover a deep conspiracy within the world organizations, governments, and even within The Network itself.

Themes in Revelations
With this work, I want to explore the following themes.
- Genetics Vs. Cybernetics :
Questioning of which is a superior design? Two philosophies: Can we use our unlocked knowledge about the natural evolutionary process (our genes) to give birth to a new type of humans or should we synthetically be creating the ultimate humans?
- Artificial Intelligence vs. Human-Kind :
Finding the means of creating a world where AI's and Humans can co-exist. Is it inevitable that one will have to dominate the other? Are AI's just servants of their creators or can they serve a greater purpose? What will happen once an AI is more advanced than its creator?
- Human Society and Legacy :
In this world there will those who seek to control human history and society. Given this capacity they seek to guide humanity towards their will. Is it right for a small group of individuals to decide the fates for all the rest of mankind?
- Deus Ex Machina :
In particular, the idea how to represent the sum of all human accomplishments that will potentially be? If it was given a form what would it look like? How would a person recognize it. If it became an entity which wanted to be known? Idea that a god is not which who created the world but the sum of all what man-kind can accomplish.
