ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — When Rio Rancho author Dr. Victor Acquista has had book events, the spotlight has been on his 2016 science fiction novel, “Sentient.”
The novel considers related themes – the individual and the collective, and social consciousness. The story is about two telepathic races.
“One shares telepathic information. That society is very peaceful. There’s no poverty, no violence, because the people are tuned into one another,” Acquista said.
“The other telepathic race is competitive and uses information to gain advantage. On a planetary scale, its goal is to be the supreme, sentient race.”
