He established his colonists and his descendants; and when he was sure that they would survive, he sealed himself in the last somec chamber in all the galaxy, triggered to awaken him when his world had built a new civilization. But using somec to disturb and manipulate the natural course of life cultivated dangers of its own….

We have a society that was becoming stagnant and decadent because all of the brilliant minds were rewarded by longer and longer periods in stasis, meaning they had no real time to actually do anything productive.

Publisher Description

This society is essentially destroyed for the greater good of the species by a character who goes on to basically be thought of as the devil, and the character of Jason Worthing goes on to essentially become the God of a new society. By the time he decides to go to sleep until civilisation has sort of reasserted itself, he comes out to find out that basically one society is using their psychic powers to essentially keep everybody else happy in the pure sense by literally changing their memories of things and healing them to keep them living entirely free from negative consequences of any element of life.

It was thought provoking to say the least. To consider what would happen in a society where basically nothing could hurt you and nobody died except of old age.

Any society that, because of no consequences, has a coming-of-age tradition involving throwing somebody on a raft and setting them on fire would certainly not bother with things like stairs down from the second floor of a building when they could just hop out a window. Even having houses at all started because shelter protected you from predators and weather.

While I appreciate any novel that is going to provoke some thought about the greater nature of the universe, it felt a little heavy-handed and obvious. But then, despite being the very entry-level version of the philosophical concepts it espoused, The Matrix was still a perfectly good movie, and by the same token, The Worthing Chronicle was a perfectly good book.
