A lazy New Year lunch develops into a discussion of why the people of the world are so complacent about the many issues that should excite controversy and action, things like global warming and the profligate use, almost to exhaustion, of the world’s limited resources.  Pete, a young industrialist, has developed a new class of military helmet with some special qualities.  He offers it to his friends to look at, and Ariadne puts it on her head.  To her surprise, she finds that her thinking processes are relieved of much of the static that people have come to accept as normal – her thinking is clear again, as it used to be.

The friends agree to report the phenomenon to the Special Branch of the Police, but Joseph, who does this, is arrested on a charge of treason, for possession of State secrets.  When a writ of Habeas Corpus is sought by his Attorney, he is released, but killed soon after in a mysterious explosion, and the friends soon find that they are the targets of Police surveillance.

They flee to a remote farm, and try to work out the source of the transmission that is affecting their thinking, to work out a way to nullify the massive forces trying to take them out of contention.  Using friends and contacts, they escape the country and travel to theUnited States, where a senior Senator assists them to escape the traps that exist for them even there.  Pete is able to manufacture sufficient helmets for the US Secret Service and several allied agencies to use in tracking the source of the transmission that threatens to undermine law and order throughout the world.

Come to think of it – do you believe that you are thinking clearly at all times?
