Tropical Nights

Our ‘strange world’ in a tropical metropole
Tropical Nights is a reflection on our ‘strange world’ with a portrait of life in an affluent fictional metropole in the tropics (named Moac). The hero is obsessed with ‘creating consciousness’ (an AI) and he hooks up with a group of friends that are determined to systemize the world around them (in a philosophy). Quite early in the story a beautiful woman enters the stage: he goes after her and she keeps him from self-destruction. Political unrest simmers in the background.
