|Giant brains must create humans in|
order to save the universe from Evil!
Life got in my way and it took me almost 30 years to plan out my very own fictional universe. During the early 2000s I began writing stories that are set in the Exodemic Fictional Universe (of course, the first story was called Exodemic). A key feature of the Exodemic Fictional Universe is the idea that aliens long ago arrived on Earth, but rather than make their presence known to the local residents, they set about secretly shaping Earth's biosphere, eventually bringing into existence the human species.

The Exode Trilogy
Three years ago I began a new story called Exode which I intended as a means to explore the origins and motivations of a group of Interventionist agents who had come to Earth and who were here among us, working secretly on our planet, trying to push our primitive culture towards greater technological sophistication. What I initially imagined as a fairly simple writing project soon snowballed and became an extended period of exploration and discovery, an on-going process of learning the secret history of Earth.
Two years ago I wrote a series of blog posts (see 1, 2, 3) that described the early stages of development on Exode and how I decided that there should be an Exode Trilogy.
Special thanks to Miranda Hedman (www.mirish.deviantart.com) for the DeviantArt stock photograph "Black Cat 9 - stock" that I used to create the blue "sedronite" who is in the image shown to the right.
Last year I tried to make a concise description of how I then imagined the three novels that make up the Exode Trilogy (see this blog post). The third Exode novel that I discovered for inclusion in the trilogy (Trysta and Ekcolir) became the first book in the Trilogy.
Year 3 of Development
During the past year I've continued to develop my thinking about the Exode backstory. I've been aided by several important collaborators such as Anney Fersoni. Slowly, with the help of Anney and her clone sisters (particularly Ivory), I've come to realize that our galaxy is populated by a diverse group of humanoids (the Sedronites) who were all created by the Huaoshy. We can't make sense of human history unless we understand the Sedronites and their reasons for visiting Earth.

of the Exode Trilogy
In proper temporal sequence, the Exode Trilogy must be thought of as starting with The Legend of Uvadekoto, a book that Isaac Asimov read after he was abducted by aliens and taken to the Moon. Yes, I could not resist writing my favorite science fiction authors into the Exode Trilogy. Asimov appears first as a young science writer, one of the very first investigative journalists of the mid-20th century in the Foundation Reality, the Reality that was brought into being by Noÿs and Andrew.

Asimov learns that after the events depicted in The Legend of Uvadekoto nothing unusual happened on Earth for the next two billion years. Then something went terribly wrong: R. Gohrlay, the first positronic robot was brought into existence at a secret base on the Moon. The Foundations of Eternity tells the story of how a simple Neanderthal girl, Gohrlay, was transformed into a positronic robot.
|Creating R. Gohrlay.|
The Foundations of Eternity was the first part of the Exode Trilogy that I wrote. I initially conceived it as a fan fiction sequel to both The End of Eternity and Asimov's novel Foundation and Earth. Along the way, the origins of the Laws of Robotics are revealed.

But it ain't easy
Using her Earthly cover identity "Trysta", Noÿs must collaborate with Grean in order to engineer a complex Reality Change that will break the temporal momentum that was built up during the ten million years of R. Gohrlay's meddling in Earth's history. Trysta and Ekcolir tells the story of how Grean uses another secret agent, Ekcolir, to win Trysta's heart and convince her to collaborate with Grean for the good of Humanity.
Eventually, the terms of the Trysta-Grean Pact are fulfilled and the Huaoshy put an end to time travel. The Final Reality, the world as we know it, is the setting for the last novel in the Exode Trilogy (Exode). I had originally started crafting Exode as a strange love story about Parthney and Kach, but along the way I discovered another "story within a story".

I'm still struggling to understand the complex tangle of events that was woven together by Grean in order to bring into existence the Buld Reality. My hope is that Thomas and Cecilie will help me finish telling the secret history of Earth and I will be able to complete the Exode Trilogy. For now, this is an active project and collaborators are welcome.
