I read a story probably 25 years ago about a lone telepathic wanderer trying to become the "one", or something like that. Throughout the story, he is hiding from some sort of evil pursuers, at least one of whom directs psychic assaults at him. I think he does succeed, and gains complete knowledge of the world, where every rock, tree, person is and what they're doing, etc. I remember it being set in a near medieval setting, yet at one point he encounters an ancient AI computer.

  • Absolutely possible...I'm sorry I can't remember much more. My thought is that it was a relatively short novel. It was not online, was definitely hardcopy. – Tarl May 6 '15 at 7:31
  • The Matrix. Definitely The Matrix. – Paul D. Waite May 6 '15 at 9:31

    @PaulD.Waite - "The Highlander", more likely... and parts 2 and 3 mixed up at that. – AcePL May 6 '15 at 11:09

    "Medieval setting" plus "ancient AI computer" makes me think it's a post-apocalypse world. – Joe L. May 6 '15 at 12:00
