The Coders by Kent Wilson
At a new place where possible variations can be seen in the past, present, and future, where travel is in a plane of possibilities and not linear, sight is in three dimensions and not two, where anything in the universe can be seen from any location, or where the Coders are.
The Coders confide in a man who is temporarily discarnate. He is told that “soft coding” will allow him to be in their presence for the protection of a scientific discovery. Awaking in the hospital, a struggle soon begins if communication with the Coders are delusions, as the directive is to kill, or a real otherworld phenomena for the benefit of all – their divine plan.
