What if you exist in two universes? And what if you must choose one?
“Intersection Man” is a hard science fiction thriller set in the post-2025 period.
Levan Lamarr, a former Marine, is dying of cancer. His wife, Mira, is pregnant and due to deliver their first child in a week. A mysterious scientist named Jonah Salter contacts the Lamarrs and claims he may have a cure for Levan’s cancer. The scientist’s device, the “Entangler,” can, in theory, restore the patient’s health. With the help of Bheem, Salter’s trusty Artificial Intelligence, Levan undergoes the procedure.
During the healing procedure, the device creates a Quantum Entanglement between two of Levan’s bodies, each of which exists in a separate universe. Both bodies share a single consciousness. This entanglement is expected to last a few days.
Levan, who is now cured, perceives both universes superimposed. The two universes are identical until Dr. Salter creates a divergence. But a series of unexpected events follow and things go horribly wrong.
