Vanessa's Curve of Mind

494 pages7 hours


Attention, brain scientists! Vanessa Trippett is on the brink of changing your field as radically as Einstein changed physics early in the twentieth century. Her work will also revolutionize psychology and dramatically impact much of medical science.

“It’s all well and good to map the active brain,” she tells one of her professors. “Why isn’t anyone worrying about precisely mapping the thinking and feeling going on at the same time?”

Vanessa doesn’t have a PhD yet, but she’s developing a map that integrates people’s thoughts and feelings with the brain. And it isn’t the three-dimensional one in anatomy books. Hers has seven dimensions, and it’s curved! But will she ever receive a degree or publish her theory? First, she will have to overcome the skepticism—and even open hostility—of her professors. Then, it’s up to her so send her papers off to journals and hope an editor will recognize what she’s accomplished.

Her best hope of getting a PhD—and seeing her work published—is a faculty member with a huge collection of her nude photos he downloaded from an adult website and a fantasy of getting her into bed. But her worst enemy may be the consequences of her own bizarre obsession with sex.
