"Strikingly original and audaciously ambitious Dr Richard and Tim Smith have delivered a science fiction geeks smorgasbord of a novel! Intellectually stimulating and exciting at the same time, Tetrastatum invalidates time travelling tropes and clichés to take us on a journey that challenges the meaning of reality and the untapped realms of the human psyche. High on drama, with a superb array of characters and timely relishes of humour, if it’s one aim was to awe us into submission and concede our insignificance on a cosmic scale then Dr Richard and Tim Smith have achieved this with ease. Exploring the metaphysics of time travel through space-time paradigm and the field of Psychothotonix this is hard science with a touch of the surreal and yet it always feels grounded in its own soberingly serious reality. Google the best time travel fiction and chances are you will be served a list of popular lightweight novels that fall sadly short of anything intellectually stimulating but Dr Richard and Tim Smith achieve an impressive balancing act that not only entertains but remains true to science at its core.
"Science fiction at its best and accompanied by stunning ink illustrations by Krekeler, Tetrastatum is sure to be well received by readers with an interest in Quantum Theory and Philosophy Metaphysics and is recommended without reservation." —BOOKVIRAL REVIEWS
"Authors Dr. Richard and Smith (which are pen names) tell their cerebral story with a heady mix of dense theory and absurdist humor. Sometimes, particularly when Tim is narrating, they manage to translate the science into intriguing vernacular: 'The brain fills in the blank spots….After working in this place for over four years, I can tell you with certainty there is a hell of a lot more out there that the brain is incapable of visually assimilating, yet exists.'"—KIRKUS REVIEWS
“People will be immersed in the concepts of translating other parallel universe ideas into visual/image interpretations of external quantum relativity theories.” Stephen Hawking.
What if the laws of physics as we understand them are incomplete, only half of the equations that explain reality?
The world we once knew has been destroyed by man’s greed. The only hope to restore the planet Earth is Dr. Tim Smith. In the material world that once existed, Tim Smith was the head of the Quantum Teleportation Program at DARPA and a “Time Smith” in the non-matter thotonic universes whose shadows persist. Unfortunately, mankind’s last hope, Dr. Smith is quite clearly, insane.
“I think therefore I am,” says Descartes’s thotonic skeleton of the past. Tetrastatum is the ultimate test. We are transported through the tunnel of institutionalized insanity as helpless voyeurs perceiving existence through Smith’s eyes. Dr. Smith’s mental meltdown takes us on a journey as a “Time Smith” exploring the meaning of reality and the human psyche.
