What if humankind were suddenly faced with an alien visitation? How would governments react? How would people react? Would governments deny their existence? Would people reflexively react with fear and/or hostility? Could governments react sensibly? Could people overcome their innate fear of the unknown and dislike of differences to warmly welcome such strangersto greet them with open minds and open hearts? Is it even possible to resolve the conflict between these human instincts and morality? The answers to these questions not only matter in this tale of irony and moral conflict, they also matter to modern society.

This story about humankinds first contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence is in the tradition of hard science fiction. The author strives to build a bridge between classical moral theory and modern neurobiology. It is compelling and provocative, entertaining and informativeand a somewhat different approach to storytelling.
