Is it possible to unravel the ego, and if so, to what end? Follow the Psycho-cartographers into the dreamscape to find out...
Scarlet Begonias is a trans-realist, coming-of-age story and an exploration of the entangled relationship between the measurement of evolution and the evolution of measurement while the fate of one girl and the universally accepted perception of reality hang in the balance.
Suzi Greenberg is in trouble. She's found herself at the edge of an existential precipice, peering into the dense vacuum of nothingness, unable to connect with the self that existed before she’d sacrificed her friends for disillusionment in Veelura and her Helping Friendly Book, wondering if she needed saving, or if she’d unraveled beyond her ability to care.
The Psycho-Cartographers use the Qualia Spectarum, a magical map of perception, to plot a course through the dreamscape. Harnessing the missing mass from the International Prototype Kilogram, they catapult through the negative curvature of phase-cancelled space to attempt a daring rescue of Suzi.
They emerge, undetected, at a Las Vegas Grateful Dead concert during a stellar version of 'Scarlet Begonias' to extract Suzi from Sumbebekos, the eternal loop of existential contemplation.
