The Ascent of Mh370
Clive Green, author
An exploration of the complexities of the universe against the backdrop of a gripping drama - the disappearance of flight Mh370.

This explanation provides a fascinating look at alternate realms ... enough to challenge intractable belief systems. A compelling New Age perspective.

In Green's imaginative yet meandering novel, real-life Malaysian Airlines flight 370 was hijacked by terrorists and then aliens and brought to an undersea base, where passengers were subjected to a program hoping to force human evolution toward enlightened consciousness. The alien procedures serve as Green's critique of a human civilization fixated on individual gain over community ideals and naturalistic deference. Unfortunately, Green allows much of the plot to be lost to lengthy new age lectures and galactic history lessons, while his protagonist is relegated to observer on an intergalactic tour.
