Today, please join me in welcoming author Eric Borgerson
Eric has been a writer in one form or another since junior high school in Oakland, California. He completed degrees in philosophy at Reed College and law at U.C. Berkeley. His career has included work in labor and civil rights law and politics, as an organizer, attorney, writer and journalist. He is also a fan of good science fiction, an avid science enthusiast, loves backpacking, music, film, and literature, and is a lifelong student of philosophy and spiritual traditions. When the Eye Sees Itself is Eric’s first major work of fiction. While it is neither biographical nor autobiographical, it is informed and animated by Eric’s extensive experience with politics and the law, as activist, participant and exile. Eric lives in the Palm Springs, California area.

Behind this public conflict lurks a new technology that enables people to touch minds. Intelligence agencies and hacktivists, cops and criminals, spiritual seekers and purveyors of institutional oppression, commercial opportunists and political revolutionaries race to control its staggering potential.
The struggle for power lays bare both a rift and a linkage more fundamental than even the most sacrosanct of divisions, as the fight for country and world becomes a battle of the mind.
When the Eye Sees Itself is a fast-paced epic, an exciting mosaic of human interconnection, and a cautionary mirror for a world growing both smaller and larger at speeds too fast to perceive.
