Novel Excerpt “Anima et Machina”

Anima et Machina

The relationship between technology and spirituality is explored throughout the novel and reaches its moment of transcendence during its crucial moments. How can something that doesn’t “die”, truly understand what life after death means? It is a fluid and complicated relationship since humanity has been, until this moment, the provider/facilitator of this link throughout Santos’ life; a life that has been deeply entrenched in Catholicism and its beliefs. How does a “machine” make sense of paradigms and parables, how does it access symbolism, codes and paradoxes? In a moment of desperation and raw anguish, the machine strives to access this grace, even if it means bypassing humanity altogether.

Andújar: The Robot Gentleman of San Juan is now on Amazon.
