Chapter 4 : Machine Messiah

The central character of the fourth instalment of the Threshold Bookcast is none other than the Chancellor of the Ovelian Federation himself, Richard Ramsay.

As we join him in a conference room of the First Cruiser of the Federal Fleet, we find the experienced politician in deep reflection, mulling over past, present, and future.

« The veteran Conservative had never really planned to spend the majority of his lifetime in the political arena, nor had he envisaged being a member of the Global Government for eight consecutive mandates. And he surely never had dreamt of becoming the first Ovelian to be elected Chancellor of the Federation on three occasions, and in a row to top it all off. He could barely believe how quickly it had all gone by. His reign had lasted over sixteen years ! And he had been a representative for over forty years ! »



The story unfolds to reveal the preoccupations of the authoritarian statesman, allowing us a peek at what really goes on behind the scenes of the Global Government.

Here's « Machine Messiah, » the fourth chapter in The Threshold Series. Enjoy !




On a background of environmental and financial crises, and religious influences intertwining with political manoeuvres to determine the fate of an overpopulated planet, The Threshold Series chronicles the saga of the Ovelian civilization, a society very similar to our own, as it heads towards one of the most dramatic chain of events of its history.

The first book, « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » focuses on the end of the year 2206, which culminates on an important federal election that will be impacted by the discovery of an anomaly in the nearby outer space.

Each episode of The Threshold Bookcast consists in a complete chapter of the series, made available for free online reading.

"Soulmates = same soul Ray?
Or shared past lives?
Or both?

If the 6th Ray of Devotion and Idealism will be outphased, the energy of this Ray can still be of use. It depends on how the energy is used."
