In the Absence of Sleep In the Absence of Sleep - 1A secret council of the most powerful men in the world plot to enslave the masses and control the planet. Already successful in reducing the world’s economies into 4 major unions, The Twelve, embark on reducing the population by releasing a genetically engineered biotoxin. Sixty percent of the world’s population dies within 6 months of what the media reports as a new Ebola virus.

Much to The Twelve’s dismay, however, a small percentage of the population has built an immunity with an unforeseen side effect. At the cost of severe insomnia, many global citizens have developed an unused portion of the brain that enables telekinetic powers. These “Mystics” eventually join forces for the final battle between good and evil in this high stakes war between the power elite and the people they seek to enslave.
