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 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…
