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.

The Call of Fate now Available for PreOrder

My new short story The Call of Fate is available for preorder.  Here is a short excerpt:

Wogan Nance, more commonly referred to as Boot Chuck by his squad, looked out over the sprawling camp of the army. Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…
