Ears PARADOXICAis a story about people searching for meaning in a universe that aggressively lacks one, and who occasionally find the next best thing in those around them.

Above all, it's about science, America, and the deeply human desire to fix our mistakes. A product of the Whisperforge http://whisperforge.org
