Point Omega

The Omega Point is a spiritual belief and a scientific speculation that everything in the universe is fated to spiral towards a final point of "divine" unification. The term was coined by the French Jesuit Catholic priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955).

Goddamn. Don DeLillo does it again. His shortest novel, featuring a filmmaker and a secret war adviser basically musing over the state of the world, starts slow, but ends tragically. I'm hella jealous of DeLillo's ability to carve the perfect phrasing to create just the atmosphere needed, even when nothing much is happening in the story. Read this book.
