Are the Spirit and the Flesh one and the same thing? Or are they separate entities, dependent and at the same time independent of each other? Perhaps some great Cosmic Law holds this secret. But the one Universal Element that we can depend upon, apparently, is The Lucky Accident.A warped instant in Space--and two egos are separated from their bodies and lost in a lonely abyss.

Book Excerpt

e power that grasped me and wrenched me, tearing me from the point in space I had occupied a moment before. My perception blurred, but I was not frightened. Without the Pat I did not care what happened. I was intensely curious. "So this is how it is," I reasoned in a flash, "to cease to be."

Negative emotions begin to appear, again it doesn't know why. Driven by emotion and using its only tool--its reasoning--it tries to discover what it is and why.

The story is rare, in that it is not at all dated, and interesting to its end.
