IF the origin of life was difficult then we are most likely not here.

If the origin of life was not difficult then we are most likely here.

The fact that we ARE here suggests that the origin of life was most likely not difficult.

Full Review:

Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a dazzling portrait of the world millions of years from now, as seen through the eyes of the character called “I.” It is the kind of sci-fi that can be characterized as visionary. The author uses different genres to focus on a setting that features humanity at a very advanced stage, grappling with the problem of survival in a failing world. Considering the state of the world and how fast technology advances, this story may not take that long to happen. The author shows a lot of ingenuity in creating new cultures and governments, offering access to other planets, but it is what humankind does in the face of extreme adversity that will capture the hearts of readers.

There is a lot I enjoyed in this book. It’s a little gem featuring all sorts of writing and art. I enjoyed the dialogues and the drama. I enjoyed the beautiful prose, engaging and constant. I enjoyed the idea of preserving human heritage and memories through journaling and other forms of art. There is variety in the writing, but it doesn’t make it boring to read, perhaps because the stories are like dreams interrupted at dawn. The author uses a lot of symbols to paint a reality of a very distant future. Then there are the compelling characters, geniuses, aliens, and robots. Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks asks many philosophical and ethical questions, including the fate of humanity vis-à-vis rapidly growing science. It’s a work that will be adored by fans of sci-fi, short stories, futuristic essays and fantasy.

Serenade of the Moon

February 27, 2016

Sit here beside me.
It’ll be here soon.
It comes out of nowhere,
serenade of the moon.

Night after night
it plays its tune,
the much celebrated
serenade of the moon.

First loud as a bell,
then soft as a loon,
the waxing and waning
serenade of the moon.

(From Writings in Science, a History of the Future,
A novel in stories, essays, poems and play.)

Sleep as Infection Fighting

November 19, 2015

More and more I see the body’s biological fight of infection as a major cause of many of our human problems, problems that are too often blamed on social relationships etc. We blame the people out there, but the greater danger – and our body is responding to it if we are unconscious of it – is infection.

Our conscious mind is not much in the fight, but the other parts of our nervous system seem to be making infection fighting, job one in importance. When we recognize that, I think it will solve a lot of our trauma.

Then I’ll take this one step further and say that sleep is mostly for fighting infection while resetting the digestive system. Wake and nurture, Sleep and fight infection.
