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 […]

The Enlightening Chapters 21-24

“Wow,” I said to Merle, as we walked away.  “That was unbelievable.”  I was referring to both the basketball game, and Merle’s rescue of the child’s ball.    “Cute kid, isn’t she?” said Merle.  “Very cute kid,” I said.  “What language was that?”  “I don’t know yet,” said Merle.  Merle told me what the language was, […]

The Enlightening Chapters 4-6

4 Although I occasionally worked breakfast or lunch in the main restaurant area, I usually worked late shift at the Enterprise Lounge, so I was on a late-night schedule that summer, no question. That was part of what was so weird about the first day of my Enlightening. It was a Wednesday morning. I woke […]

The Enlightening Chapters 1-3

1 Prior to my Enlightening, I actually believed that scientists knew just about everything there is to know about the universe. It never even occurred to me that many great thinkers throughout history believed the same thing, quite mistakenly, in the context of their own times. From the brilliant scholars of the Enlightenment and Renaissance, […]
