       Additional Information  
     
      A young student at a university, Keros lives in an age controlled by computer technology that rules everyone’s lives and determines their careers according to their genetic profile. Unfortunately his profile marks him out as a potential troublemaker, and he is transferred to training in a space colonization project and separated from his fiancée, Su Chen, against his will. Being imprisoned in the underground complex of the university, he resolves to make his escape and forces his way through a psychological barrier into a medieval society that has been set up as a project to discover the causes of conflict in human society. Here he is faced with a civilization run on the basis of “might is right” and has many adventures that eventually lead him to discover a means by which the rule of the computers can be brought to an end.

    Under the rule of artificial intelligence, the driving force of logic only seeks economy and innovation stagnates. Freedom is necessary for evolution.
