Beyond Eden

From Fantastic Fiction: "Where is the border between life and non-life, between living organism and lifeless rock? This is the story of a man and a woman - both scientists, both dedicated to peace - who first discovered the Living Water and knew they had found the great and terrible secret of the source of all life. Great because their discovery opened out into a future of opportunity and abundance. Terrible because the Living Water intensified men's inherent tendencies for good or for evil. As individuals, they were free to drink the Living Water, if they dared. As scientists they faced a graver problem. What would the world make of their discover: another hell, or another Eden?"
