"I am the only being with choice. The rest of you are stimulus machines, engines that run on feedback that I code, command and control," says Zerone Setzer. --- In this political science fiction, politics, technology, and social engineering collide in a wide-ranging program of social control headed by cybernetic savant working for a corrupt, fascistic government. Zerone Setzer, educated by an ex-Soviet scientist, is involved in a conspiracy that dates back to the 17th century. He is the only being with any true choice as he manipulates big data to increase aggression, autism, allergies, austerity, myths of affluence, all according to an algorithmic program that clandestinely controls everything people see, think, and feel. As a new Cold War brews, and a Caliphate has arisen in the disorder of the Middle East, this is part one of a two volume novel where we see how code itself comes to determine existence under the control of the one whose dangerous gift of visualization and wielding of technological power achieves in a world eerily much like our own. B1t: the unification of the one and the zero that builds the program. B0t: the execution of that reconciliation as the entire operating system of the human world is altered.
