In the not-so-distant future, a society thrives on speed in every sphere of life. In this society, technology fully bridges the gap between desire and fulfillment. The storyas protagonist, Theo Praxis, wakes up one day to discover that he has short-term memory, and that speed-enhancing nanotechnology erases everyoneas memory every twenty-four hours. Theo does not know that all of his memories were recorded by Mnimius, an angel-like observer. The Nexus, a machine that is able to recreate human memories, allows Theo to re-live his past. Mnimius tells Theo to look beyond the perpetual present that is fostered by the need for speed, as Theo discovers that his life is not limited to one day. He lives his past as if for the first time and exactly as he remembers it: as a history full of gaps. He discovers that he is aging rapidly and that he has to oppose the turbocharged society he lives in. Tempus Fugit examines the conflict between intelligent design and evolution. It is also about the relationship between memory and the rapid technological advances that engulf the collective consciousness of modern society.
