Yes, I’m still working my way through Michio Kaku’s Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension . Full disclosure requires me to tell you that while I can easily grasp the higher concepts and especially appreciate the human aspects of the minds that generate them, the math drives me mad. Call it elegant or beautiful, for me, the logic behind it is impenetrable.
With that being said, however, Hyperspace has provided me with the physics that will potentially clarify the foundation concepts for two novels I am currently working on. While I don’t want the stories to be as sterile as some heavily science-referenced science fiction can be, I want them to be based on plausible physics. In order to do that I have to gather data, and understanding the physics—if not the math—is all part of it.
With that being said, I’ll keep this post short as I want to get back building up the novels I’m trying desperately to finish. As I mentioned in a previous post, I increasingly feel like I’m working on a deadline and I still have a lot to write. I have many challenges to tackle and the daily distractions of work and home life don’t help my efforts.
Until next time, drop me a line, follow me, or check out Any Tomorrow on Amazon.
