The Truth About Eden, Re-Issued With Author's Notes And Commentary by JV PRESOGNA

indie ebook cover

In "The Truth About Eden," everything works exactly as it is supposed to work, but that is exactly the reason it fails.

In the distant future, this surrealistic fairy tale sees a large church hold a lottery for an earthly paradise run by machines and computers. In this way, if machines can do all of the work, humans can truly return to paradise. Polupus, however, the leader of the church, needs to be certain of the proposition. He wants to test a group of people first, before building more Edens to fill with those wanting earthly salvation.

Orathus, the winner of the lottery, takes 6 of his friends with him, and they will all be mated and married in this new paradise run by computers. The computer which runs the complex has a communication device which is rather clever. A robot who walks and talks like a human being is the way that people communicate with the main computer. Val is the necessary God of paradise to keep everyone in line during this test. To determine the ethics of the entrants, another robot named Demian is there to more or less tempt them.

Over a one year period at paradise, the 14 entrants to be tested seem to be passing with flying colors, but the story unfolds in a great double tragedy, when Demian and his robot mate Veronna take over the complex, deactivating Val and his own mate Belinda.

This story is more valid today than it was as a regional bestseller in 1975, because the fear today is about something going wrong with artificial intelligence. In "The Truth About Eden," nothing goes wrong but it fails anyway. Indeed the real fear of artificial intelligence is that it works perfectly. "The Truth About Eden" is a philosophical satire which is science-fiction, a one of a kind story with a unique original idea. It is not utopia or dystopia, or about something going wrong. It's a double tragedy with a moral lesson, good reading for a high school senior class or college freshmen to discuss, including the moral issues at the end of the story.
