Synopsis

In a cosmos where the physical constants of nature are fine tuned to unimaginable precision to permit the existence of life, the giant US/Chinese radio telescope on the far side of the moon detects no technological civilizations. Why?

Amidst global environmental ruin and social collapse of the mid-21st century, fantasies of space travel to the stars and cheap limitless energy have proven to be just that. Fantasies. Upon this stage appears an American Indian woman in the grip of a delusion that her son is Quetzalcoatl, an ancient Meso-American God whom she has pursued in devotion across the centuries. A teacher at the Apache Indian reservation elementary school recognizes the boy as probably the greatest mathematical genius in human history. A shaman senses in the man the reality of myth and fulfillment of ancient prophecy. None comprehend the staggering dimensions of his true destiny.

I Quetzalcoatl is a psychedelic adventure of a genius who must choose between surrender to delusion, or freedom from superstition and madness to fall in love and live his own life as the greatest particle physicist of his age. In so doing he unleashes forces that give substance to ancient myths and challenge the limits of human imagination.
