Zendegi Paperback



Nasim is a young computer scientist, hoping to work on the Human Connectome Project: a plan to map every neural connection in the human brain.

But funding for the project is cancelled, and Nasim ends up devoting her career to Zendegi, a computerised virtual world used by millions of people.

Zendegi is facing fierce competition from its rivals, and Nasim decides to exploit the map to fill the virtual world with better Proxies: the bit-players that bring its crowd scenes to life.

As controversy rages over the nature and rights of the Proxies, a friend with terminal cancer begs Nasim to make a Proxy of him, so some part of him will survive to help raise his orphaned son.

But Zendegi is about to become a battlefield ...
