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.

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!

A Chosen Path in the Editing Stage

A CHOSEN PATH, the second installment of the Colliding Empires Short Story Series, is now officially in the editing phase. I hope to get some feedback from my writing group in the next couple of weeks, and I have been sifting through it on my own to find those nasty little grammatical errors that crop up when the first draft is done. I hope to have it published on Amazon in 2 to 3 weeks. I would like to thank Jeffrey Kosh for his covers. He will be providing me with the covers for all ten of the short stories that I plan to publish for this series. If you are an author and are looking for covers that easily fit into your budget, I would suggest giving his web page a quick look. Thanks everyone!

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…
