I'm in the process of collecting information to write my first science fiction novel, and I have to say how impressed I am with those who have done
this before. It's much more challenging than it appears from the outside to not just tell a story, but to try to find the balance between what is
fantastic and believable while still threading a real human interest.
I sometimes feel like I'm going back to school with this one, especially as I'm melding some of ATS's favorite topics into what I'm looking at,
through the eyes of a half-hearted skeptic. That said, the threads here and the members are a treasure trove of information, and I get inspiration
from some of what I learn here.
Without giving away too many details, the series I want to write is going to use a series of odd events to lead the protagonist into following clues
in a search that eventually will be for the origins of mankind. It has always struck me as bizarre that civilization popped up simultaneously in so
many places at once, and with some common elements, such that I wonder what might have been lost. Legends of Atlantis and Lemuria might be
interesting if they represent a fallen age of man.
I'm certainly not the first or only one to tread this path, but I think it might make for a fun world to read and write, and even more so if the

But I'm going to be doing a ton of research, and I hope to be able to call on some of the people here for insights on different issues.
Specifically, in this first book, I'm exploring sacred geometry, frequencies attuned to humanity and their impact, a little astronomy, and I'm
thinking of getting into Tesla and the Hutchison effect. It's less about proving or disproving anything as opening the mind of my character to a
I guess it reflects my own personal observation that as I learn, matter matters less than energy, and I think as science comes to understand us
better, it will find the interactions, waves, energies, and the like are more important. Which is how I'm imagining the obligatory black ops group
