The Hypothesis of Semipermeable Realities

It's the through the search for ourselves that we discover the truth, about ourselves, about others, about the world, about reality itself. Every day we experience the world around us and the world in our minds; two very different worlds. We meet friends, strangers, touch objects, think thoughts about these very encounters. Do the thoughts equal the physical experience? Or, do they exist as separate entities, apart from the world our bodies walk in? When you lie in your bed at night, thinking about whatever it is that you think about, do the thoughts that you create instantaneously exist, like the doorknob to your bedroom, despite not being able to reach out and grasp them? In a way, yes, I believe they do exist. I believe that our mind is a separate reality that exists within the reality that our bodies do. It is a semipermeable reality that can interact with the physical reality. Thoughts have a powerful effect on our physical bodies, our conscious thoughts interact with people everyday, and create ideas that make it to real world applications. General Relativity, the works of Beethoven and Mozart, the creation of jet propulsion, all of these things started out as thoughts. I'm not a physicist, or a scientist in any recognizable definition of the word. I'm just a regular person that likes to think...a lot. Can I test my theory? No. I wouldn't even know where to begin, but my belief in my hypothesis exists, and perhaps, a scientist out there can test it one day.

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…

Amazon Author Page Following

Gathering Steam

Hello everyone! Not much of an update today. I've gotten a few hundred words written, probably about a hundred or a little less in the Colliding Empires. I've gotten a few paragraphs written on a possible scifi novel and a novella that I had been working on.

I've been listening to Nathan Lowell's TRADER TALES. I always come back to this series. I love Ishmael's voice in that series, and I'm really looking forward to the next installment SEEKERS and another branch in that universe SMUGGLERS. I've taken a break to listening to Steven Erikson's Malazan books and have gone back to some podcasts:  The Dead Robots' Society, StarTalk Radio, Android Central, and Magic the Amateuring.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and ...

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!
