Have you ever wanted to see the world through someone else’s eyes?
Now you can. The Empathy Machine made it possible. It made a dream become reality, but cast humanity into a nightmare as a result.
Harold has been warning the public for decades. A young scientist turned doomsayer, he saw how the Machine caused a crippling addiction into anyone who used them. And the danger is hidden under the guise of the world’s most sought-out virtue — empathy.
The Empathy Machine is a neuroscientific milestone. It allows an Observer to see the world through the eyes of their Source. They experience the world through others’ senses and emotions—feeling what the other feels and forgetting themselves in the process.
For the first time in history, you can literally walk in someone else’s shoes. This resolves all the disputes mankind has been unable to resolve up to that point. But what’s left of the Observer is just the shell of a human being. Nothing will make them want to get out of the machine. Once you’re in, there’s no way out.
For die-hard Observer, Ryan, every day is an adventure. Through his Source, Alan, he is able to live the life of a fearless vigilante. But somewhere along the way, Ryan meets another Source, N, who unwittingly shows him just how sinister the Empathy Machines can be.
