What Love Feels Like: The Dawn of Human 2.0

Love and science may seem like strange bedfellows, but in a new quasi-fiction collaboration by authors Dave Cunningham and C.K. Tyler, the two subjects dance together in a strange kind of harmony. Science turns its focus on love and tries to find a practical answer to a mystical question: What does love feel like?

Luke and Dawn, both in their mid-60’s, meet via Match.com and fall in love. Their passionate, storybook romance ends when Luke dies of brain cancer. Dawn returns home from the funeral to the shock of hearing Luke’s voice and seeing his face on her computer. His brain had been uploaded into her PC before he died, part of an experiment for which he volunteered – but never told her about.

Luke exists in virtual reality, and researchers ask Dawn to participate in the experiment by becoming wired into the same reality, where she could experience Luke and his magical, “anything is possible” universe with all five senses. As they did in life, the virtual Luke and Dawn explore the meaning of love: Is it something rare and mystical, or just chemical reactions in the brain? In fact, these questions are the focus of the experiment.

What is new love like in one’s golden years? Can a digital copy of the human brain feel love? Can “old dogs” learn new tricks about love? What happens to a person who craves love but can no longer receive it?

These and other questions are explored in a series of love letters and the storyline of What Love Feels Like: The Dawn of Human 2.0, a tale that’s relatable to lovers of all ages.

by David Cunningham & C.K. Tyler

Can love outlive death?

The book grabs you right from the start with a romantic tableau of a couple so comfortable with one another. Reading through back-and-forth emails you easily see how the romance blossomed from mere curiosity on a dating site to a deeply touching and heartfelt romance.

Told through their e-mailed letters, the storybook romance of Lucas and Dawn unfolds in a unique love story which began as a simple post on a dating website, and evolves into an extraordinary relationship that extends beyond Lucas’ death. Given a second chance through a secret government agency, Luke’s consciousness is preserved, and the lovers embark on a journey of discovery as they explore the meaning of life, hope, courage and, above all, What Love Feels Like.

Combined with science fiction (maybe?), the love story takes a twist when Luke passes away and Dawn finds that he had his “brain” uploaded. Knowing that this would give her the chance to keep her love “alive” Dawn soon embraces the possibility.

Without disclosing the ending, the reader becomes truly invested in Luke and Dawn’s romance and relationship. There are possibilities and there are setbacks, but in the end we understand…

Book Review: MoneyBall MEDICINE

MoneyBall Medicine:
Thriving in the New Data-Driven
Healthcare Market

by Harry Glorikian

Embracing the Future of Healthcare

With over 300-million people in the U.S.A. and almost 8-billion people worldwide, even people with very rare diseases and conditions are not alone. And with that many people around every doctor should be able to rely on the research and treatments of other professionals. As far as I am concerned, this was the most important aspect of the book MoneyBall MEDICINE by Harry Glorikian and Malorye Allison Branca.

Building a data-base of symptoms and treatments would allow doctors to treat conditions even if they have never dealt with such patients before. The concerns of HIPPA and other privacy, although a concern to some, could be alleviated if each patient’s information is recorded as a coded number instead of an identifying name, address or phone number. Patients that need to have their medical records transferred to another medical facility need only give permission to access that specific code. Having a data-base that is readily accessible would be a huge boon to healthcare.

The authors also talk about data-bases which will improve healthcare in hospitals, doctors’ offices and in pharmacology because of all the information that would be readily available. Business practices can be streamlined by researching methods that prove to be more cost effective, efficient and most responsive to patient needs and welfare.

By eliminating needless treatments, surgeries, and possibly even time needed for recuperation and repeated hospitalization, insurance payments can be controlled and hopefully the savings will be passed along to the insured. Having a database of medical information that can be utilized easily would only be an advantage, and yes, so long as patient privacy is not violated.

I can only agree that expanding our already expansive use of databases and AI (artificial intelligence) technology would be boon to our healthcare market. We have to get beyond proprietary medical records and put the patient and cost-effective methods first. This is definitely an eye-opening and exciting book and should certainly be taken to heart by anyone in the medical, research and insurance field.
