Review
Reading Peter Riva's science fiction novel The Path (Book 1 of the TAGseries) felt like diving into a world entirely different from our own yet soimmersive that upon returning to the surface we call "reality", I had to openmy window to catch some fresh air (more like "chilling winds") as I reflectedon the novel's mind-bending concepts and thought-provoking investigationsabout humans, machines, and the things that set them apart. The Path is likethe virtual Heart of Darkness minus the "darkness" or a potent potion thatsome might not dare to consume, but its effects are tantalizing.
The Path is a remarkable experience that brings us to an alien but realisticworld, a fascinating exploration of the human mind, its psychological aspects,and the possibility of humanizing machines through assimilation.
I've wrapped my mind around this question: Is humanizing an A.I. trulypossible? But I think the more important question is: Is the possibility oflosing our human qualities that make us human --flaws, emotions, the tendencyto learn from mistakes and choose our own paths instead of processing datathrough the machines' analogue ways -- more dangerous than machinesoutsmarting humans? Discover The Path that Riva has paved, and you mightfind an answer. - Jake Vyper, fantascize.com
