100 SECONDS TO MIDNIGHT:
CONVERSATIONS AT A SEMINAR
BY SURENDRA KUMAR SAGAR
In a parallel universe something happened on September 11 2001.
It looked like a plane striking one of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre, New York. It was seen entering the building apparently with no reduction in its speed.
Sometime later another plane was seen striking the other tower. Like the first one, this too was seen entering the building apparently with no reduction in its speed.
The planes were seen changing shape and color, missing wings, were featureless and blurred. It was observed - by some experts - that the planes had no strobe lights. The planes did not cast any shadow.
The twin towers collapsed one by one.
The world was informed it was a terrorist attack carried out by Al Qaida who highjacked large planes -- of the 757-767 class -- and struck the two towers one after the other.
The 9/11 commission report investigated the matter and confirmed it was a terrorist attack.
Engineers, Architects, expert pilots, and many other professionals, doubted the commission report, but were ignored.
Millions of innocent people died in the Middle East. Tens of thousands of American Soldiers died.
Years later - in early September 2020, an imaginary seminar entitled ``SWITCHED ON`` was held at the National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore.
The book `100 SECONDS TO MIDNIGHT` is all about what transpired in that seminar. It explores grave international concerns that endanger the continued survival and evolution of the human mind.
The concept of an Imaginary Seminar where great Scientists and Philosophers of the past are invited ( as revised versions) to give their presentations as if they were alive today, enables the author to bring in the best experts in the field to talk about various issues such as Climate Change, The highly advanced state of nuclear war preparations by many countries including US, Russia and China, CoVID-19, and Possible Bio Warfare in the future, Fanaticism and religious extremism, etc to name just a few.
The author has his own ideas on several topics such as `Corelation of the Emblematic Clock with extinction probabilities`, `The conflict between Shias and Sunnies and how to resolve it, and above all his Analysis - as a Structural Engineer - on what happened (rather what DID NOT HAPPEN`) on 9/11.
The hypothetical seminar was cleverly designed to enable the predominantly good state of America to finally take care of the deep state and `switch on` the good times for the people of America and the rest of the world.
