“The Pearl Territory”, chapter 11 – Ichi

Ichi #privatejournal  Why am I breaking myself into pieces striving to please everybody and pretending I agree with their bullshit? Why am I trying to save these cynical, arrogant and cruel creatures who call themselves “advanced humans?” Am I weak? Am I deluded? I was born in Kyota (Japan) but grew up in Fort Saskatchewan (Canada). I’m the youngest of four children. At the age of 6, I attended Sherritt private school...

The value of humanity: does a single life matter?

Guest post by Sami Reed Cleaver – Click to connect Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another. Carl Sagan We worry about the number of reacts on Facebook. The number of followers on Instagram. Buying a house, getting a car, finding love, passing exams – we worry about something ALL...

Do psychic phenomena exist?

Psychokinesis Telepathy Clairvoynce Teleportation Magnetism Pyrokinesis Precognition and much more… How about a quick experiment? Ask 10 closest people to you if such things as telepathy and clairvoyance are real, then note their responses. I can bet that there’ll be no consensus with their answers.

I remember her hair – the color of white snow – and vibrant orchid eyes, almost like mosaics, unnaturally beautiful, the mix of forgotten spring and crystalline heaven.

A cloudless spring day. This is what...

Welcome to ‘Nowhere’

“DO WHAT YOU CANNOT DO. SEE WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE. EXPLAIN WHAT YOU CANNOT EXPLAIN.” I remember watching the movie series – The Matrix Trilogy – almost two decades ago. If you watched similarly-themed futuristic motion flicks, you might have marveled at the scope and reach of man’s mind. But the amazing thing is that these technologies have refused to simply remain within the confines of science fiction novels and movies....

The Last To Fall

As you know, I’m writing “The Pearl Territory” only because I saw Pain with her team in my sleep – like a dream – and I usually don’t see any dreams. I had to share it and I think the story is going to be BIG. And crazy. In a good sci-fi way. “I had a dream, which was not all a dream.” Lord Byron Why am telling you that?...

People are not peas

There are two types of people in this world. People who hate peas…and people who are peas. This is a good place to begin if you’d like to learn how DNA, our genes and genetic variations works. Gregor Mendel, the former abbot and a XIX century monk was the one who worked out the fundamental principles of genetic inheritance. Thanks to peas we can read the DNA, information about the...
