In this Douglas Rushkoff novel, an eclectic group of young people gather around a central figure, almost messianic figure, a British guy with a screw loose named Duncan. They have a goal, to use computers and mind expanding drugs to touch the next dimension, to move beyond the temporal. To make money to support their communal lifestyle (read: drug habit), they throw nightly raves in the warehouse where they live illegally. The massive amounts of drugs that these kids ingest throughout the course of the book makes the reader confused as to whether or not the paranoia that exponentially increases towards the end of the novel is due to there actually being someone out there not. Makes for quite an interesting read.
