One premise/motif of our feature film FRACKERS is that every being in the universe is a light being. As Einstein famously figured, "No energy is created or destroyed". We in turn came up with the idea that our light, the light that is us, is also eternal. This fun premise for a film does consider that even our eternal energy might change form, as light can be be both particles and waves, so can our energy break-down from waves into less desirable particles, not to be judgmental.
Welcome to Beyond the End of the World. My name is Aaron Dennis, and I will be presenting this published novel to you one chapter at time. The entire novel is free for download via Barnes and Noble online.
The constant soft background noise of the ship throbbed and hummed throughout the cramped space as silence fell over her crew at work.
History has demonstrated that the space race was the first endeavor of man – other than war – to challenge our entire scope of scientific and technological capabilities. The crowning moment in this challenge was when Apollo 11 travelled 260,000 miles in space, landed two astronauts on the Moon and returned safely.
Many consider HP Lovecraft to be one of the greatest horror writers, despite the fact that many people are only familiar with his works because someone posted a pic of Cthulhu on Reddit once. When Lovecraft wasn't writing letters brimming with overt racism, he wrote stories--many of which are easily among the greatest pieces of sci-fi horror of his time. A whole list could be dedicated to just listing his short stories...
The newest incarnation of Star Trek is, apparently, about to start filming anytime now. Called Star Trek: Discovery, little is known about the show. However, a teaser trailer from the San Diego Comic-Con last year showed footage of the new starship emerging from space dock and fans were understandably outraged. The angular abomination looked amateur and unworthy of being in the greatest sci-fi franchise of all time. Based on an unused Ralph McQuarrie concept for the USS Enterprise from the unmade movie Star Trek: Planet of the Titans, it almost appears to be a marriage of Starfleet and Klingon design. Fans flocked to comment online and the general consensus was that everyone hoped this was simply a first draft and the ship would be vastly improved before the new series aired.
Just like a 3-dimensional Princess Leia burst out of a 2-dimensional piece of film and just like that 3-D image pops off the 2-D sticker on your credit card, evidence is growing that the universe around you may be a 3-dimensional bubble emanating out of a 2-dimensional surface.
When facing the UFO phenomenon head on, the most problematic question one may ask is actually the most simple: Are UFOs real?
The Roswell incident is known worldwide. It also remains one of the most compelling UFO cases in the modern UFO era. For those who may know the bare essentials, here's a primer on this deeply compelling and controversial case. For those veteran UFO enthusiasts out there... here is a refresher course with your morning coffee.
As I sat down for a relaxing evening cup of tea and some social networking nirvana, I honestly wasn't expecting much. But suddenly, I found my Facebook page, Twitter account, and email completely flooded with messages from those who I have grown to call friends in the “UFO community”. Apparently, while I was at work, the C.I.A had disclosed the truth behind the secret military installation known the world over as Area 51.
Irrespective of Hollywood's perspective on the implications of alien contact, the dialogues that would inevitably follow an actual encounter are enormous, almost too staggering to conceive. Imagine the questions we could ask a visiting extraterrestrial: Do you have a cure for cancer? Is there life after death? Are the physical laws in your part of the universe the same as in ours? Is there a way to overcome the burden of gravity, prolong youth, exceed the speed of light...? Think of the things we could learn, among them, as Carl Sagan put it, how "possibly to avoid the dangers of the period of technological adolescence we are now passing through."
“We could make you disappear, and your body would never be found.”
