About the book
London experimenters condition a group of completely segregated orphans with an artificially implanted language, an Amazon Indian tribe employs hallucinatory powers against an American-Brazilian dam project, and the extraterrestrial Sp'thra seek to maintain their endangered communications systems
The Embedding opens in a research institute where Chris Sole is teaching a strange form of language whose grammar can be self-embedded by computers to create an artificially complex means of communication that opens up the vast potential of the human mind.
