5G - praised and celebrated by politicians and industry, disputed by scientists and experts, and stubbornly fought by opponents: there is a fierce dispute about mobile communication even before 5G is introduced. Who is right and who should we believe? The search for answers leads the author to the beginnings of mobile communication and to its modern, seductive applications, but also to the underestimated, ignored or simply "overlooked" dangers for humans, animals and the environment, from which an entire ethnic group is already on the run: the electromagnetically hypersensitive. But 5G brings even more profound changes: Microchips, robotics, the departure into space, artificial intelligence, digitization and the Internet of Things, global surveillance, and finally the end of privacy as we know it. While the public debate continues, the author searches for solutions, discovers possible alternatives, and fathoms where these developments might lead us. Ultimately, he realizes that mobile communication could even become superfluous in the near future, as renowned scientists are already talking about an imminent global awakening of humanity.
