Cosmology Thoughts

By | July 14th, 2015|Cosmology, Evolved|0 Comments

Bubble Universes, Multi-universes, D-Branes, and others - there are no shortage of theories about how our universe is structured. Like most economic forecasts, they are probably all wrong (sorry, my inner financial analyst couldn't resist). This is no slam of the great minds of our time, it is simply a reflection of how little we [...]

Present State

By | July 6th, 2015|Christianity, Evolved, Judaism|0 Comments

The challenge of Presence is a big part of Evolved. Presence both in the spatial and temporal sense. Mahayana Buddhism talks about Zen through meditation, a way of seeking emptiness for enlightenment. Judaism describes God in one form as Present. There is something special about the present, being present. In our world we tend to [...]

Silicon Life in Evolved

By | July 3rd, 2015|Evolved, Spiritual|0 Comments

What defines life is a central question in Evolved. Robots and humans have equal rights in the distant future of Evolved. Robots are all but indistinguishable from humans in appearance, are highly creative, dexterous, and even emotional. The robots/ androids in Evolved are not like Data from Star Trek, a character that always fascinated me, [...]

Nested Meanings

The 'Two into One' theme in Evolved extends from particle physics, through the reality surrounding us, up to cosmology.

Time Matters in Evolved

By | June 29th, 2015|Cosmology, Spacetime, Spiritual, Time Theory|0 Comments

What is time? If the image of a clock appears in your mind, reconsider. It is something we take as fundamental to our existence, a plug in a physics formula, a tool by which to schedule our day. But tell me, what IS time? Does it change? Has it always been around? Even before the [...]

Bear Bait

The reason I started writing was to set an example for my daughters. Two years ago, while she was in first grade, my oldest daughter began writing multi-page stories. I believe in parenting by example and so to encourage her I decided to start writing as well. Evolved began with a kernel of an idea: "What if inorganic [...]

Eagle Eye Shared

By | June 27th, 2015|Christianity, I, Spiritual|0 Comments

The path that led me to write Evolved began firmly in science and logic, studying the properties of chemical elements, space time structures, and neurology. It eventually led me to something I called the "Real" in the book as I dove into psychology, specifically the subconscious. It was only at the end that I felt [...]

Eagle Eyes Penetrate

By | June 27th, 2015|I, Native American, Spiritual|0 Comments

Everyone does it. “Knows something” and conveniently rationalizes that something into an inconsequential object in our mind. The sun is bright, the oceans vast, the universe infinite. Simple neat objects in our mind. It is only when we’re confronted with an unfiltered view of the sun, swim in hurricane churned surf, or watch the northern lights [...]

Finding One

By | June 25th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Copyright Ruth Dick Each summer the family drives many hours, gets in a boat and motors five miles out on Lake of the Woods in Canada. No road access, outhouse, surrounded by bald eagles, beavers, and black bears. On the first day up here we saw all three! It is the closest place I've found [...]

That’s Just Warped!

By | June 15th, 2015|Cosmology|0 Comments

It didn’t take long after I started writing that I figured out if I was going to set the story in the distant future, I needed to understand some of the theories about the universe. After reading many books on bubble universes, multi-universes, and string theory, I found Dr. Randall’s theories most satisfying. Her book, [...]
