The Ethos of George Book Description:

A good man returns to ill-fated dreams time and time again if for no other reason than to shake the cornerstones of destiny. The fortunes of the fated rely not only on the external, but on the inner workings of serendipity, driven by the heart, yet forged of mindful will. While the soul is born of both heart and mind it cannot survive one without the other and not fall prey to the bitterness of ignorance or the tragedy of requite. As true love is to the romantic, the turmoil of the senseless is forever bound by their endless chase; fulfillment unquenched. When a new born robot named George is thrust into the homeless alleys of the ghetto, he is ill-prepared to face the reality of life on the streets. During his journey his naïve and literal sense of logic results in a comical sequence of events that take him to the very edge of what it means to be self-aware. After accidentally starting his house on fire, he rescues a small boy, Harry-the human son of his creator-and escapes the flames only to find himself lost and alone. When Harry goes missing, he embarks on a journey of discovery as he searches for clues to his disappearance while at the same time learning to negotiate the perils of human truth. During his search he finds that honesty isn't an absolute and that nothing is set in stone. For even the speed of light isn't fixed in the cosmos and while three different people can witness the same event and tell three different stories, the only testimony that can save him is his own. To do this he must learn to look within himself, seeking out that small voice in his head that speaks of unsearchable truths that can never be known without first sifting through the essence of his soul. But before then he must become a person of principle, for the nature of any man is driven by his ethos and there have been many men of wanton character who've added nothing to this world save selfish desire. In accordance with his inherent innocence, George struggles with his ability to filter and process the confusing contradictions that are constantly thrust upon him, and like so many angels of the sublime, he must first cast-off the self-before rising to the challenge. And when he does, his ethos influences the lives of all those around him, even if they don't understand it yet themselves. Join in his quest. A journey to the realm of conscious thought made possible through the selfless sacrifice of one man-for it is only through total understanding and love that George will be able to muster the full force of compassion, given freely, without reservation, noble in faculty, yet majestic in power.
