Big Data Has the Answers

Rufus wants to settle it. He has the connections, the hackers, and the computing power to compare the astrological charts of 100,000,000 Americans to the events of their actual lives. Are astrological forces real or not?

Under the cover of the Institute for Humanistic Innovation, Rufus and his Data Collection Group are prepared to implement their secret plan. Elaborate hacking schemes and unlimited computing power will enable them to build a database so extensive that the answer will be irrefutable.

When the constant pressure of deception in every direction begins to engulf his very soul and threaten his family, Rufus is forced to make adjustments.

Rufus is a sheep farmer by trade, but his real passion is astrology. He’s even written a book, in which his discussion of unified religions is supported by astrological science—including the concept that everyone’s life is guided by heavenly bodies. Rufus’ ideas earn him an invite to the Data Collection Group, which hopes to authenticate astrology by linking real-life data with horoscope predictions. This requires a colossal amount of information, as specific as possible. Hacking’s … Read more
