In future with a colonized galaxy, a mad scientist develops an evolving quantum computer which he believes proves determinism and prediction of the collapse of civilization.

It started interesting, but dove into too many plotlines, timelines, and characters, and then space-wizards. I find it predictable and tedious, and I'm constantly nagged at there being zero good looking women, just passable persons of pigment hired for The Message.
