Content:

In a distant future, mankind lives encapsuled in an etarnal city. They are lead by a computer. They never leave the city, they are virtually immortal. They go "to sleep" at intervals and are re-awakened some hundreds or thousand years later. Once in a while, a strange one is awakened. Someone, who has never been awakened before. And this one has the desire to leave the city.

He finds another city, other human beings and even a spaceship to go to outer space to look for the remnants of mankind (or the entities that drove mankind out of the universe and back to earth some billion years ago). He finds them not, but a strange entity that is neither ...

The rest of the reading you gotta do for yourself.
