The Intricate Soul
The discovery of a rare mineral on Mars and the potential wealth for those seeking to exploit it leads to a power struggle
within the ruling Council of the Solar System. The research into developing synthetic intelligence to produce an independent cybernetic mining workforce, and in particular an experiment on a coma patient, draws Dr Eldin Malok, a senior neuro-surgeon, into an ethical struggle with the authorities. Is it ever justifiable to tamper with the human mind for the purpose of 'progress'? Malok's fight for what he believes is the sanctity of the human mind, a person's soul, ends in a personal tragedy for him but with a new resolve to continue with what he has begun.
