Theta Head

Set very much in the present, Theta Head follows Georgia, a 25-year-old London woman whose search for her missing boyfriend is challenged by the very technology she believes caused his disappearance.

Theta Head is a novel which sits somewhere between contemporary fiction, speculative fiction, and present day science fiction. At its heart it is a modern-day mystery, one that explores the theme of how technology can bring people closer to themselves, as opposed to others. The central questions is: Will technology develop a mind of its own, or can it have ours?

Who?

The Theta Heads have seen a future in which communication technology has brought people closer to others and yet, ironically, has pushed them further away from themselves, leaving them with a worse quality of inner being.

They think people don’t have time to pay attention to what is inside anymore, and have therefore asked the question: What would happen if the technological paradigm is shifted to a more humane arena? What would arise – without the consultation of a good psychologist – when layer upon layer of superficial thought peels away to reveal the experience of stark naked consciousness itself? Would this be a place we would want to visit? Would we like or be able to deal with things that have long been buried and forgotten?

Georgia is about to find out.

Theta Head Synopsis
Georgia‘s search for her missing boyfriend, Ben, takes her from London through
Asia.
 
On route she discovers that Ben has been using a neuroscience technology
 –
onethat offers the potential of complete liberation to anyone who uses it. It is atechnology Georgia must embrace if she is to find Ben, but one that is such anintimate catalyst for change Georgia i
sn‘t sure she can handle the side of herself it
uncovers.It is only her desire to find Ben which drives her on; a force which leads her to theTheta Heads and a choice: continue using the technology to hack away at her layersof mental static and find the real reason he disappeared, or let go and face a futurewithout him.Theta Head

Escalating down into the musty warmth of the London underground‘s brutal
machinery, shaken and ignored as she then shudders through its sooty wormholes,Georgia catches sight of her dark under-eye semicircles. They smile back at herfrom the opposite window in the darkness between stations and they are, shewh
ispers to herself, ‗Evidence.‘
Of too many late nights scanning flight and phone
records, missing persons‘ sites, lists of router histories and addresses. All
percolating like TV static in her head. All too much until subdued with an ice packand 250 mls of vodka.Georgia looks in her bag, but the sunglasses she needs to cover her eyes with are
not there; summer isn‘t due for another six months. She‘d never really liked them
