In the novel LINK: Scientists at Search international discover the true depository for all memory, the atemporal Particle, a biological singularity, which is at the functional center of the nucleus of every cell. Most neuroscientists want to believe that memory, including ancestral memory, is stored in an individual's DNA, an absurdity developed to avoid having to consider the atemporal state.
To prove the existence of the Particle and it's infinite and timeless capability to store memory, scientists at Search International build a lab to conduct their process of accessing ancestral memories from test subjects with known historical links.
A comfortable dentist chair is acquired. A device that looks much like a blood pressure cuff is fitted to the right side of the chair. The device has all of the necessary electronic sensors and cables to link the subject to the impressive array of electronic equipment against one wall.
A high-pressure tube and nozzle are used to pressure-inject memory enhancing chemicals into the subject's blood stream, the only uncomfortable part of the process.
Behind the head of the test subject is the bio-synchronizer, a plastic-like device which wraps around the neck of the subject. This synchronizes the recall process with a key part of the brain and permits the acquisition of full-action memories.
A large video monitor is hung from the ceiling on a gimbaled mount so that it can be seen by the subject and those monitoring the experiments.
Anna Piersons, MD, and LaShauna Jackson, PhD, are the two women who attend most of the experiments along with Allen Nolte, a wisecracking engineer, who's responsibility it is to check the historical background of the subject's experiences.
As a reader, you will be present as Joan (Otis) Kenny, a Search International mathematician, travels back in time through her ancestral memories to such times as James Otis' speech to the Massachusetts Assembly before the American Revolution, 249 years before she was born.
But nothing in your experience will prepare you for the ancestral memory retrieval series of Dr. ben Charash, an Israeli scientist whose ancestor watches the Roman centurions approach his home sometime before 70 AD, and in another session the doctor hears, first hand, of the Miracle at Cana, 2,010 years earlier, from an actual witness.
