In Hinduism, Amrita is a fabled drink that confers this gift. The Greeks and Romans called it Ambrosia. The Chinese believe in the Peaches of Immortality and the Norse call it the Apples of Immortality.Ancient literature is replete with examples of individuals imbued with extreme longevity.
Methuselah is reputed to have lived 972 years, and the Bible teaches us that many early patriarchs had lifespans of a 1,000 years or more. Beyond the Bible, many ancient cultures write of people with extremely long lifespans. These tales are disregarded as fiction or errors of how we accounted for time- but what if the fountain of youth were real- and what if the elites of the world had decided, over millennia, to keep the secret of immortality to themselves?
What if today a secret cartel of immortals ruled the world? The true “men behind the curtain, the puppet masters.”Conspiracy theories abound, and we already surmise that the world is controlled by secret cabals of extraordinarily wealthy elites who freely walk the shadowy corridors of power and hide as anonymous stockholders of the largest corporations, behind impenetrable layers of legally entangled shell companies & secretive trusts.
These apex elites gravitate towards and control core human needs like water, food, medicine, banking, industry, transport, education, science, military, entertainment, media and propaganda. We, the masses, are mere labor to provide for their every whim and need.To these apex elites, corporations and even countries are mere commodities to be manipulated.
They decide when countries boom and when they go bust. When peace ceases to be profitable, they make war, and when societies become war-weary, they sue for peace, but always, no matter how many suffer or die, the apex elite remain. There is even an unwritten code that the victors of wars rarely remove the apex elites of a conquered country.
Sure, they may remove the puppet leadership of a country, but the true apex elite of a region are seldom touched.Today, people speak in hushed whispers about the Illuminati, the Club of Rome, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, The Skull and Bones Society, The Milner Group, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Freemasons and countless other secret organizations.
To utter the word conspiracy is to invite the label of crazy, but what if those organizations were mere distractions and behind all the smoke & mirrors rested a truly hidden Circle of people with access to everlasting life? What would people be willing to do to join that club?We know that the craving for immortality is one that drives people to the ends of the world, and that the Über rich already have access to better healthcare.
Once they discovered the gift of immortality, would the elites of the world choose share it with a planet already overburdened with too many people, or would they rationalize to keep the gift of immortality private, available to only a select few? What would these people do to retain power?
How would they see the rest of us? Visit the world of the Immortality Complex to find out.1941, New York City, Jake Senex is just a NYPD detective, but in an instant, he is cast into the world of The Circle and its immortal leaders. As the world plunges into war, one flawed man races across the globe to solve a mystery of why someone is trying to kill him – assassins at every turn.
Against all-powerful immortal elites who are behind and above World War 2, and for whom borders and money are no object, what chance does one man have?BREAKDOWNThe Immortality Complex is a novel presented in three short-fiction p
