Summary (From the publisher):

Constructed from a montage of events, images, facts and allusions that “unite and coordinate the past and future to one point,” Bayer turns the historical adventure of the sea captain Vitus Bering, who sailed to discover whether America was linked to Asia, into a metaphor for inner voyage and ultimate liberation “from opinions and thoughts.” Against the backdrop of a chilling “outside” reality in which the logic of a mechanical universe is beginning to run riot, and all subjective distance washed away, the reader is drawn into a vortex of unnerving paradoxes, a calculating machine of sublime horrors - “the birth pangs of initiation.”
