Synopsis of S./The Bearer of STATE
Imagine... all resources, all information, all power supplies of an entire nation; controlled by one
parasite object about the size of a bag: STATE.
As STATE needs to be directed by the human it lives off, the Bearer of STATE is by default the absolute ruler
of the state. But for decades, no one has been able to bear STATE and a ruthless President has taken over.
This novel starts the day that one of the nation’s most wanted freedom fighters, S., obtains STATE and thus
becomes Bearer of STATE. She sets out to install democracy, but she and those around her have not counted
on the infiltration of STATE into the Bearer’s body, her self, her being.
S. has to come to grips with STATE and she has to focus to locate and disable her opponents. She is catapulted
from action scenes into visions of white, which capture the different states of self that the power and information
structures of STATE induce. Before long, these visions evolve from incidences into a continuum, marking her transition
into an object: the object of veneration for some, an object of hate for others.
The existence of a Bearer of STATE inhibits the process of democratization, so this leaves STATE with only one choice.
But before S. can accomplish this end, there are more changes she has to undergo…
