The Enlightening Chapters 41-45

                                                            41 We walked back to Merle’s car, in the parking lot, and got in.  I assumed he was going to drive me home, and then leave, but he had saved his biggest surprise for last.  “Hey, Ken,” Merle said casually, as if the idea had just occurred to him, “would you like to visit […]

The Enlightening Chapters 37-40

                                                            37 Merle drove me back home.  He turned on his “radio” and we listened to some jazz.  “Who is this playing, Merle?” “That’s Thelonious Monk.”   “I like it.”  “I love it,” Merle said.    When we pulled up to the house, the fireflies were out, in the yards and in the park across the street.  […]

The Enlightening Chapters 34-36

                                                            34                                  Soon, we were back in Merle’s car, and headed over to what was becoming the “usual” spot, behind the mall by the dumpster.  When we got there, a truly scraggly-looking man was there, on his bicycle, peering into the dumpster.  As we approached, he reached down into the dumpster and pulled out […]

The Enlightening Chapters 31-33

                                                            31        I didn’t have much time, right then, to ponder the ramifications of what I had just witnessed, or what Merle meant by his comment about very large accumulations of mass/energy, because Merle informed me that we had to pack up and get out of there.  We unexpectedly had less time than […]

Toroidal Black Hole Structure

The Enlightening presents a toroidal, or, more colloquially, doughnut-shaped black hole structure. The plasma jets commonly observed are generated by gravitational field lines which draw matter from the inner walls of the torus and expel it back out into space in the form of plasma, via twisting magnetic field lines extending through the central opening […]

The Enlightening Chapters 28-30

                                                             28 Out in the parking lot, a snazzy little red two-door sports car was parked to the left of Merle’s nondescript vehicle.  I could see Atropha behind the wheel, and Clotro in the front passenger seat.  As we approached, Clotro opened the passenger door, leaned forward, and unhinged her seat, so that Latsis […]

The Enlightening Chapters 25-27

                                                            25 That night, I dreamed of flying through space.  I can’t remember exactly what it was all about, but I know I was gliding through an endless field of stars.  They were so thickly spread that it was like swimming through a dense and limitless school of shiny little fish in the ocean.  I […]
