#8 Sorry About the Sensors

A massive space freighter for #8 Sorry About the Sensors

“Sorry about the sensors but I have no control over that and have no idea why it is happening. I can stand next to a computer and the computer will stop working. Regularly blow out light bulbs in my house. Do my best to avoid elevators now. I need to get out of this bed. […]

Library ascending into the heavens

Simulation Theory Have you ever felt something is wrong with reality but can’t quite put your finger on it?

#7 Adrift in a Daydream of Memories

adrift in a daydream of memories

There are stars all around me. Drifting. A sea of galaxies in every direction. It is so quiet here. So beautiful. Weightless and adrift in a daydream of memories. My body feels like it’s been plugged into a giant electric socket. Waves of vibration roll over me. A pulsing that goes deep into the bones. […]

Library ascending into the heavens

Why is this important? I’ve been meaning to read Project Beta by Greg Bishop for a long time. All the time I’ve spent laying around Med-Bay was put to good use wading through my reading to-do list. It’s an important book for anyone who is interested in ufology or pretty much anything that isn’t supposed […]

“You are getting your color back which is good to see,” she said while shining that damn flashlight in my eyes again. “Do you have to do that? My head really hurts.” “What if I like doing it?” “Well then, I suppose that would be OK, wouldn’t want to suck the fun out of it […]

#4 What Now?

A glowing tunnel of spinning stars

I must have blacked out again because everyone is gone. The clean bill of health is lost in proofreading. It’s just me and the blinky lights. There is something about this room. A pulsing resonance you can feel. Is that what they meant by sync? Maybe they are tuning me like a radio. That would […]

Review of Ubik by Philip K. Dick

Library ascending into the heavens

Down the Rabbit Hole Read enough books and sooner or later you’ll find a magic one. Ubik was one of those books for me. I can’t even begin to describe the level of weirdness this book brought into my life.  It left noticeable perturbations in my reality tunnel. Some part of this book seemed to […]
