Plot:

 

Jacob Savvel, a young scientist (in the fields of Philosophy, Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Clinical Psychology, and Psychiatry) is hired by the Institute for International Strategic Studies. Academician Borg, the 77-year old Nobel Prize winner, a famous long-years Director of the Institute (Institute also referred to in the text as “The Citadel”), appoints Jacob for the following task: to conclude a world survey in 6 months, meeting with the leaders of the planet elite circles: heads of Corporations, Banks, Bourses, Media, Religions, Secret Societies, Science, Politics, etc., in order to find out whether RAPTUS as a medical phenomena transcends itself into the social life of the global contemporary civilization. Raptus (Latin) originally means a mass madness observed in isolated collective human groups – in prisons, hospitals, sanitariums, army, ships, islands, brothel houses, etc. Jacob’s task it to analyze the world (after meeting with global leaders) and make scientific conclusions regarding to what degree Raptus has infected human society in general.

 

Jacob fulfils his task and meets with all world leaders. Part 2 of the Novel (7 chapters) is dedicated to Jacob’s Inquiry of the World. In these meetings, the main message comes from the dialogue with the leaders of the world elite groups: they outline their philosophy, their ideology, doctrines, concepts, and vision. All of them state they have the best recipe/prescription for saving our common world or rather for improving it by all possible means. Actually, all of them want to create a new world, new Human, new God, etc. All of them want to be the leaders of the New World Order. All of them believe fanatically that their ideas are the best possible doctrines ever discovered in human history. And this is the point for their RAPTUS – and this is the sad true which Jacob discovers during his interviews with the gurus of our world. Dialogue between the Leaders and Jacob unveils the craziness of most of the ideas proposed. At the same, time, persons interviewed and the elite planetary groups inquired are those who at present posses the world power. We all live under their will and their command.

 

While Jacob conducts his Inquiry, a powerful enemy of Academician Borg works out his evil plan - General Hardcliff, Leader of the “Hawks” political lobby (who terribly hates Jews for example), aims at seizing the world power by becoming Director of Institute for International Strategic Studies. The General, also called the Conquistador, wants to replace Academician Borg by any means. The General is always supported by his Chief Advisor and obedient servant – Paul Gnezinski. Together they draft the Operation Priest – an evil master plot for “dethroning of Academician Borg”.

 

The results of Jacob’s World Inquiry of Raptus are astonishing: Raptus has transferred itself inside the society’s heart and mind; Raptus has taken over the minds of the world leaders and their powerful groups and doctrines; Raptus is actually ruling the world and its fate. Commonsense and normal human reason/logic are fading away, conquered by Raptus.

 

Jacob puts together all data from the interviews; he completes the Inquiry of the World, analyzes results and makes his final scientific conclusion regarding the enormous power of Raptus. He writes a letter to Academician Borg, sending also all the results from the Inquiry.

 

But at the same time the Citadel (the Institute for International Strategic Studies) has a new Master: General Hardcliff succeeds in ousting Academician Borg. “I execute the Will of History” – states the General when he takes the power.

 

So, the results from Raptus World Inquiry, sent by Jacob to the Institute, never actually reach their real and natural destination – Academician Borg. The new masters of the world, commanded by General Hardcliff, do not wish to give sound to such astonishing scientific discovery, which is dangerous for their own power. Their doctrines are actually Raptus – and so these new world masters have no interest in disclosing to the world the results from Jacob’s Inquiry.

 

Finally, all this means no glory and no scientific popularity for Jacob Savvel. He has discovered his truth for the world; and now he realizes that knowledge and free mind is a heavy burden. He has to live somehow further on with this terrible burden. He realizes that this broad and overwhelming knowledge is opposing to happiness. But he has to carry on. Somehow. To live on this particular Earth, in this particular time. And this is the drama for every thinking or creative person – to carry on with this knowledge, to live his life to its very end in a normal way. And this is the unhappy drama, the unhappy fate of the free human mind.
