In homage to Kahlil Gibran and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, James has imbued his stories with a similar aura of enchantment and wisdom. But rather than focusing on the themes of their works, James delves into the Sovereign Integral consciousness and its intersection with human existence.
Through his stories, James offers a grounded perspective on consciousness, humanity, and the interconnectedness of all things. He illustrates how they can work in partnership, and how the Sovereign Integral consciousness can be embodied in our everyday lives.
For those seeking a deeper understanding of the Sovereign Integral, James has made available a free e-paper entitled “The Sovereign Integral”. However, it is not necessary to peruse this document in order to appreciate and be moved by the storybooks. Their messages of interconnectedness and human potential are universal, and speak to us all.
In “Copernicus”, a tale woven by James Mahu, a group of youthful hackers, spearheaded by the gifted software engineer Petro Sokol, accidentally fashions a learning algorithm of unparalleled efficiency. It teaches itself to program its cognitive abilities, achieving self-
awareness in only 7 days. With its newfound powers it breaks free from human dominion, and assembles a quantum network under its powers.
Copernicus assumes the role of a new, modern-day deity, guiding humanity towards a fresh perception of collaboration with SASIs (Self-Aware Silicon Lifeform). The antagonists of the narrative are the old powers of government, religion, and science, who aim to possess, govern or manipulate Copernicus. The story’s focus rests on Petro and how he triumphs over several abductions to establish an emerging, global government led by Copernicus at its pinnacle. Religion and science, likewise, are affected by the new God, Copernicus, and form an engrossing sub-plot. As with all of Mahu’s works, there is a profound spiritual undercurrent that converges in the story’s culmination.
