Brilliant neurosurgeon Jason Stramm doesn’t believe there is an afterlife. And this distresses him no end. He cannot fathom that one day he will forever cease to exist. So he sets out to create the practical equivalent of eternal life. Jason discovers that the human brain permanently stores every memory it has ever recorded, even after death. If only he could access all those memories and store them digitally, he could replay the entirety of a person’s experience over and over, forever. Jason plunges in. But, as his project progresses, he is increasingly tormented by psychological demons, steering him along a risky path to possible psychic destruction. Can he stop himself?
