“The Academy” was originally a Buddhist monastery
Back before the change, the monks lived in almost complete isolation, interacting with the outside world only when necessary.
“It is a form of collective meditation,”
“I connected our consciousness so that we could sense one another and work together.”
Bobby Ether and the Academy
“There is no such thing as magic.” That’s what the mysterious stranger named Cassandra tells Bobby after helping him narrowly escape from the small army of secret agents who surround his house. What follows is an amazing adventure – from indoor forests to vast archives, from a labyrinth of jade mines to the dark recesses of a bear’s lair. Along the way, Bobby will learn that, while there may be no such thing as magic, there is powerful energy within us all. In fact, the entire universe is connected by energy – and he has the rare ability to control it
