HYPERSPACE

HYPERSPACE

IF YOU DOUBT THAT HOMO SAPIENS IS A LUNATIC SPECIES, LISTEN TO THE NEWS AND READ HISTORY. THE QUESTION TO BE ASKED IS, WHY? HOMO SAPIENS’ LUNACY EXPLAINS ITS COROLLARY: THAT PLANET EARTH IS A LUNATIC ASYLUM! READ HYPERSPACE AND WATCH THE PROCESS IN MICROCOSM UNFOLD BEFORE YOUR EYES.

In purely psychophysiological terms, this story is about a man with a malfunctioning brain. So great is the extremity of this malfunction that he crosses the line separating the neurotic from the psychotic, though this is never stated. Rather, HYPERSPACE shows the reader events in the protagonist’s life that are pathetic, heartrending, tragic, and chilling. Beginning with Jason’s inability to consummate a relationship with a warm, alluring, high-spirited, and extraordinarily beautiful young woman, the story delves into his past, utilizing his self-questioning concerning this failure as a triggering mechanism of reminiscing which transports him to events of his adolescence, resulting, eventually, in his regressing to the first day of his life. Through Jason’s vivid pictorial imagination and his great power of recall the reader is introduced to a young life being subjected to traumatic experiences having his parents and an indifferent birthing facility as their primary sources. After the story’s first depiction of a traumatic childhood scene Jason is shown walking into the semi-desert plain beyond his parents’ house. There, in the darkening evening, he “befriends” a small twinkling star visible to him as he stands near a rocky peak. When he “realizes” that it “guided” him in his walk, drew him away from his home, in order that they meet, he “reaches out” to it. From then on this star becomes Jason’s focus of escaping from hell. Finally, after his aforementioned failure with the woman, he decides he must travel to his star friend. Boarding a “spacecraft” Jason begins a voyage which will shock and chill the reader with its take-your-breath-away ending.

The story–dedicated to psychologist Arthur Janov and to obstetrician Frederick Leboyer–is deeply psychological, showing a direct connection between birth and post-birth trauma, sexuality, and suicide. It also utilizes the protagonist as a thought provoking vehicle of competing philosophies (existentialism, world systemic theories, and Stoicism), and as a passionate judge of classical and contemporary music, making HYPERSPACE provocative and relevant.

Sexually explicit material is integral to, but does not dominate, the story; while use of colorful, intricately descriptive prose and ardent poetry throughout HYPERSPACE, make it a literary delicacy. The story’s refusal to shy away from the protagonist’s abnormal psychophysiological state with all of its ramifications aligns HYPERSPACE with psychologically profound novels of such caliber as Sartre’s Nausea and Salinger’s A Catcher in the Rye. HYPERSPACE is a realistic literary analysis of a person whose brain is programmed to self-destruct.
