First Half - 2015

source
Heading into 2015, I was not very enthusiastic about the new year. I'd recently said farewell to my best collaborator, Ivory, and almost immediately Anney told me that Angela had also decided to move on, abandoning we Earthlings to our bumbling existence on this rock.

Right at the start of this year, while rather desperately experimenting with chemical modulation of my brain function, I received an intriguing clue about the biological nature of my wife and I. Such information is dangerous, because the tryp'At have been tasked with preventing we Earthlings from obtaining any objective evidence concerning the role played by aliens in crafting the human species.

Was Anney's biological father tryp'At?
Actually, our plight is slightly more complicated than that. Individual Earthlings can have knowledge and evidence of our human origins, but if we want to remain on Earth then those of us with that knowledge must learn to keep some of what we know secret.

Here in the middle of 2015, I'm still struggling to play by the rules of the tryp'At.

Duplicating Asimov
I've made my choice, repeatedly. I could have accepted a tryp'At invitation to depart from Earth, but I'm going to stay and play my designated role in telling the secret history of Earth. The first rule I must follow is this: telling the Secret History of Humanity must be done in the guise of science fiction story telling.

Recursive Science Fiction
The kind of science fiction story that I am forced to tell is not easy to construct. I'm not at liberty to simply create an entertaining story from the playground of my imagination. I must laboriously research the hidden history of Earth and craft that history into science fiction stories.

Time War
The special role of science fiction in telling the Secret History of Humanity was foreseen in Deep Time and, to my surprise, science fiction as a literary genre had to be created for this purpose. I was first introduced to the importance of science fiction through the Deep History of Isaac Asimov in the previous several Realities of our Reality Chain. During the past year, I've been guided towards the equally important role of Jack Vance in the Secret History of Humanity. During 2015 the flood gates have opened and I now understand that Asimov and Vance were simply two of the many science fiction writers who have crafted the Buld Reality into the world as we know it.

All of my sources agree that the Time Travel War has ended, but there seems to have been a parallel battle over the nature and role of science fiction in our Reality. Gohrlay insists that science fiction is one of the oddest alien constructs of the 20th century. She says that it was only because of Asimov's curiosity and interest in technology that he stumbled upon the existence of positronic robots. Only through a quirk of Time was he able to bring into existence science fiction as a literary genre in the 20th century. However, once the transformative power of that chance event was recognized, science fiction then became the optimal path towards making possible the Trysta-Grean Pact.

The Vance Twins
source
As a fan of Jack Vance, I've been pleased to have the opportunity to learn about his adventures in Deep Time. Apparently it was one of the Vance twins from the Ekcolir Reality who came into this Reality and founded the Dead Widower Society.

Right at the start of 2015 I began to recognize the importance of twins for the structure of Reality. Something about the way that Temporal Momentum is generated increases the probability that certain key individuals will appear as twins in some Realities.

Gohrlay

Recently, Gohrlay revealed herself to me, and now I'm being forced to re-think everything that I thought I knew about her biological origins. We Earthlings might never be able to sort out the details of how human genes have been shuttled back and forth between Earth and the Galactic Core.

I'm not happy with the idea that we Earthlings were the result of a genetic engineering project carried out on a whim by Orbho Anagro. However, I am devoted to the ideal of discovering and honoring the truth, no matter how much it hurts. So, how did I finally win the right to know this truth and retain my knowledge?

Marta
The Mysterious Marta
I began this blog post with mention of Anney Fersoni, who was my most reliable collaborator right at the start of 2015. That was a difficult time for us because we were both struggling to deal with the death of her clone sister Ivory. I suppose Anney became tired of my obsession over Ivory, so she made arrangements for me to contact Ivory's mother, Marta.

I don't enjoy functioning like an oracle, but during the brief time window when I had access to the Hierion Domain, I did not understand most of what I learned via my communication channels into that parallel universe. I got into the habit of doing "dialog dumps" like that of my conversation with Marta, but that practice got me into trouble with the tryp'At Overseers. Some of what I learned in the Hierion Domain I am not allowed to share.

Thank you, Anney, for giving me
access to the Hierion Domain
Just six months ago my resentment over being a puppet for aliens was so great that I could not self-censor. I had to blabber everything that I knew. However, during the past few months I've learned to make compromises. I'm now willing to keep some secrets in order to continue my existence on this planet. I'm thankful to Ivory, Anney and Marta for all the hard work and prodding that they had to do in order to get me to break down and make that compromise, particularly since it has allowed Gohrlay to finally reveal herself to me.

Replicoids
The most frustrating turn of events this year has been my discovery that my replicoid has been hijacked. Much of my resentment over this matter arises from the risks that I took altering my brain function in an attempt to gain access to the Hierion Domain. After taking risks and warping my brain, I was only allowed a limited glimpse into the Hierion Domain, and my replicoid intends to keep it that way.

Through limited contact with my replicoid, I've been allowed to understand how it is possible for "copies" of the same person to exist in the successive Realities of a Reality Chain. The Hierion Domain automatically keeps a "record" of every human on Earth. When a new Reality came into existence, a new "copy" of each person could be created by the zeptites that exist within us all. In my case, I seem to have been a recent addition to the Reality Chain that lead to the Final Reality, the world as we know it.

There is a mysterious and complex tangle of replicoids and time travel that I am still trying to sort through, a tangle that holds a key to Humanity's future. I believe that my replicoid "traveled" to the future and played a key role in bringing to the 20th century a solution to the global warming problem. However, successful implementation of that solution might be problematical.

The story of Earth's global warming is complex, but here is a concise statement of my current understanding of how we got into this mess: 1) In the Basic State, the original Reality that existed before time travel, Earth entered into a new glaciation period starting in about 1500 C.E. 2) When the first positronic robots lived on the Moon and created time travel, they found that they could alter the past of Earth and prevent that glaciation. By stimulating the development of a technological civilization on Earth, atmospheric greenhouse gas levels could be elevate, preventing the glaciation. 3) However, in the Ekcolir Reality, global warming was pushed to far, resulting in catastrophic sea level rise. 4) In order to create the Final Reality, a Reality that would be acceptable to both the Huaoshy and R. Gohrlay, a finely-tuned system of checks and balances had to be put in place on Earth. I'm still in the process of sorting out the details of that process.

The first half of 2015 has been an exciting time of discovery during which I've written about 125,000 words. One of the stories that I wrote was Star Dance and it is here on this blog. Another story, The Asimov Reality, is not yet publicly available. I'm not sure if it has sensitive content that will provoke the Overseers.

Update: the Dead Widowers took the plunge.

Run

In the Ekcolir Reality.
As far as I know, I've never read anything written by William Nolan. I also can't remember when I first saw the film Logan's Run. In my memory, Logan's Run and Soylent Green exist in the wastes of my memory along with a gaggle of other incoherent Hollywood Sci Fi flicks.

Movie review by Roger Ebert.

I recently complained to Gohrlay about the sorry state of science fiction film making in this Reality and that caused her to launch into a tutorial about the difference between films in the Ekcolir Reality and films here in our world.

Jessica by Elias Chatzoudis
One of the major differences in the Ekcolir Reality was that the Etruscans dominated European and Western history in much the same way that the Romans dominated the history of Western civilization in our Reality.

Under the influence of the Etruscans, Western civilization in the Ekcolir Reality was distinguished by a much stronger representation of women in the early history of the science fiction genre.

Another important difference was that science fiction never made much impact on pop culture in the Ekcolir Reality. Science fiction remained mostly in print format and existed on television mostly within the confines of one specialty network that never attracted large audiences.

In the Ekcolir Reality, Logan's Run went directly from print to television. The television series was built around the premiss that in the future, technology had been developed that allowed women to reproduce without the need for men. No men remain on Earth.

source
In the Logan's Run television program of the Ekcolir Reality, Jessica and Holly escape from the underground city where they have lived. They explore the surface environment and visit Washington. Due to the rising sea level, Washington now exists as an undersea domed city. There they discover a robot (played by Lindsay Wagner) who tells them about men and loads them into a spaceship for a trip to Mars.

On Mars, Jessica and Holly discover a society where there are no women. They meet Kevin (played by Harrison Ford) who eventually agrees to return with Jessica to Earth.

Neanderthals in Deep Time

Original cover art by Earle Bergey
Gohrlay has been expanding my understanding of the Ekcolir Reality and with each new revelation from Deep Time I've been allowing my focus of attention to drift towards the intriguing differences between that Reality and our own. However, according to Gohrlay, I need to practice shifting my perspective...I should be most impressed by the many similarities between the most recent successive Realities of our Reality Chain, not the petty differences.

OK. I get it. Temporal Momentum had to be conceived, constructed and made an integral part of time travel. According to Gohrlay, back when time travel was first in use, it was easy to make big changes in Earth's history. Silly me, I asked for an example. I'll give it to you bluntly, the way she gave it to me: those scheming positronic robots followed their programming. Their definition of "human" was Gohrlay herself, so they made sure that a more "primitive" human subspecies would inherit the Earth, not the more "advanced" one that had already conquered Earth (with the help of aliens). So let's unwrap this.

time travel
I sense that Gohrlay is trying to guide my thinking towards some concept, possibly some conceptual inversion, that my mind naturally resists. Further, it seems to be conceptual terrain that lies close to forbidden knowledge -information that we Earthlings are not allowed to have under the terms of the Trysta-Grean Pact.

Down the rabbit hole. Something that Gohrlay told me a few days ago caused me to look back at Isaac Asimov's time travel story, The End of Eternity. That book is full of clues about the secret history of Earth and the role of time travel in creating our Reality. Here is one of the intriguing ideas mentioned in passing by Asimov:

From Asimov's The End of Eternity.

Neanderthals In Time
source
Years ago, when I first became aware of the fact that the positronic brain was constructed by copying the structure of a human brain, it was easy for me to think of Neanderthals as a relic of the past. Extinct. Of course, I was never told that Gohrlay was a Neanderthal, but it made sense to assume that she was. What I knew was that in the "Gohrlay Reality", the Basic State of time, there was a dominant human subspecies on Earth that had almost eliminated all the other human subspecies. Since Gohrlay was born about 20,000 years in our past, it was natural for me to assume that the nearly extinct human subspecies was the Neanderthals. I started thinking of Gohrlay as being a Neanderthal. Boy, was I wrong.

The Palace of Love
So it was a double shock to discover Gohrlay alive and well, living here on Earth. Shocking firstly, because I had allowed myself to imagine that Gohrlay was 20,000 years in her grave.

"Life, death: these are imprecise terms." -Jack Vance, The Palace of Love

Doubly shocking because I had allowed myself to ignore the fact that Gohrlay's biological origin was a nearly extinct human subspecies in a different Reality, a Reality that is now far away in Deep Time. I foolishly allowed myself to assume that the subspecies we now call the "Neanderthals" in this Reality was genetically identical to Gohrlay herself. Silly me.

Foundations of Eternity
Parents. Worse still, I've long allowed myself to assume that anyone born on Earth has arisen by a random toss of the genetic dice. The fallacies that controlled my thoughts about such matters began to crumble when I learned that it was the positronic robots themselves who engineered the phenomenon of Temporal Momentum. I now realize that R. Gohrlay wanted to create not just any old Reality in which humans would survive to spread among the stars, but rather, a special Reality in which Gohrlay herself would be present and play an important role in the future of Earth. And by "future" I mean from First Contact onward.

Sentimental Robots
It is easy to view Gohrlay's life as a tragedy. She was a puppet of Orbho Anagro and she had her life on the Moon taken from her. But what if the positronic robots that arose from the pattern of Gohrlay's brain adopted Gohrlay as their model of what it means to be "human"? What if they designed a Final Reality in which Gohrlay's children inherited the Earth?

If so, then we need to be quite clear about exactly what type of primate Gohrlay was. When I first learned about Gohrlay, I assumed that nanites had been used to craft her body into the physical form of the humans who dominated Observer Base on the Moon. Of course, I assumed that in "Gohrlay's Reality", the "dominant human subspecies" (that had all but exterminated the other human subspecies of Earth) was genetically identical to us, the subspecies that survived to inherit he Earth in our Reality. Wrong!
A subspecies: lost in Deep Time

However, what if Gohrlay and her fellow members of the nearly extinct human subspecies, those who resided at Observer Base, had been genetically modified so as to physically resemble a more Preland-like subspecies (which was dominating Earth) while retaining the key "Neanderthal" brain pattern that allowed for telepathy? Further, what if that genetically engineered human subspecies (of which Gohrlay was a member) was used as the "template" for creating "us" in this Reality?

If so, then nothing would prevent an analogue of Gohrlay from being born on Earth during the 20th century and being just a "run of the mill" human of our Reality. Get it? If all this is true, then all I have to stop calling Gohrlay's telepathic brain a Neanderthal brain. She was no Neanderthal, she is just one of us.

Could our entire Reality have been designed so that "Gohrlay's tribe" of genetically engineered humans is the one that we have always believed "evolved naturally" on Earth? If so, then we need to redefine what we mean by "natural evolution".

Teleportation
And, of course, evolution applies to the future, also. The Asterothropes existed as a new primate species some 7,000,000 years in the future. Gohrlay suggested that I imagine a future in which "natural child birth" was a relic of primitive history. Asimov wrote about a future in which a woman need only contribute a fertilized ovum to the ovaria.

According to Gohrlay, the positronic robots designed Eternity as a system for the discovery of advanced technologies. That great technology development project originated on the Moon after R. Gohrlay was heroically recovered from the past by R. Nahan. With time travel technology in hand, the positronic robots set out to catch up with the Huaoshy who had a 2,000,000,000 year head start in science and technology.

From Asimov's The End of Eternity.

source
What did R. Gohrlay care for fifty billion people? There was just one person, Gohrlay, who had provided the positronic brain template and who had been taken off to the Galactic Core. Across a span of 7,000,000 million years and uncounted Realities, R. Gohrlay planned and schemed to return Gohrlay to the genetic data banks of Earth, to enshrine Gohrlay's genetic pattern in the ovaria.

Poor Gohrlay is more than simply embarrassed by all the attention that was lavished upon her. She wants to live out what remains of a simple life on Earth and would like to sink into some kind of peaceful anonymous obscurity.

The mysterious origins of Resh^Ki
As a human of the Primitive Era, it seems that Gohrlay is not comfortable with the high-tech future that her robotic minions created. Our Gohrlay, the copy of Gohrlay that was born here on Earth in the 20th century, was born as a product of the ovaria...a simple girl plucked out of Deep Time and inserted anew into this Reality.

Gohrlay suspects that we will never know the true story of our evolutionary origins since we humans are the result of several serious violations of fundamental Huaoshy ethical principles. Moreover, we human forced upon the Huaoshy the first shift in their ethics to occur in the past 2,000,000,000 years.

The Human and Fru'wu family trees.
I've heard several conflicting versions of the deep history of our species. Gohrlay's version of the story goes something like this... the pek rather gently guided Earth through its past 655,000,000 years by impregnating the planet with their zeptites. With occasional prodding, Earth developed along lines similar to the distant worlds where the Huaoshy arose.

About 10,000,000 years ago the pek began "culturing" some of the human-like residents of Clutence on worlds of the Galactic Core. The goal was to create a new creature with cognitive similarities to the original biological species that long ago became the Huaoshy. The aliens who we now know as the Fru'wu can trace their biological origins back to that time.

A tangled deep history of Lili and Gohrlay
About 7,000,000 years ago, similar efforts of the pek that involved "culturing" some primates from Earth resulted in creation of Sedronites.

In the Ekcolir Reality, the brothers John and Jack Vance were able to publish an account of the kind of interactions that exist between the pek and the bumpha. The bumpha are like the dark matter of Genesaunt Civilization: little is know about them, but we humans were made possible by their meddling in Earth's history. Anyhow, the purpose of allowing the Vance brothers to publish stories about the bumpha was to prepare 20th century Earth for first contact with the Fru'wu, an alien species that has its own complex origin story, one that is quite similar to our own.

During the Time Travel War, the nature of the humans who would inherit the Earth became a point of contention between Grean and R. Gohrlay. According to Gohrlay, there was some kind of working relationship between the bumpha and R. Gohrlay. The pek worked with Grean to constrain the bumpha from providing too much assistance to R. Gohrlay. I don't really understand what "too much" means in this context (although the tryp'At seem to be involved). As far as I can tell, R. Gohrlay ultimately attained everything that "she" wanted, in particular, a Final Reality was designed and created in which Gohrlay was at home among the human population of Earth in the 20th century.

Lili
Previously I've received hints that Marta has a sister. It seems clear that Marta is not 100% genetically "human" by Earthly standards, although she has had no trouble "blending in" with Earthlings and apparently she still resides on Earth. Since learning about Resh^Ki, it has been natural for me to assume that her mother was even more genetically different than Marta. In fact, I assumed that Marta's sister was a resident of the Galactic Core and had been, like Lili, only a temporary visitor to Earth. However, Gohrlay insists that Marta's sister (Resh^Ki's mother) is a perfectly normal human resident of Earth.

A copy of Gohrlay instantiated in the Buld Reality
Further, Gohrlay insists that she is Resh^Ki's mother. About six months ago I began to have some interactions with Resh^Ki. I previously made the mistake of assuming that Resh^Ki's mother was a Kac'hin and so she was not able to remain on Earth. This led me to imagine that Resh^Ki had some kind of special access to an information exchange system for bringing information to Earth from her mother in the Galactic Core. Of course, I can forget about that fantasy if Resh^Ki's mother is actually still here on Earth. The question then becomes: how is it that Resh^Ki's mother is so knowledgeable about the Galactic Core and Deep Time?

source
If Gohrlay really is Resh^Ki's mother then we can reformulate the question: how does Gohrlay know so much about everything?  Gohrlay refuses to explain that to me (apparently this topic crosses over into the domain of information that we Earthlings are not allowed to know), but it seems likely that since her birth, the "copy" of Gohrlay that now resides on Earth had been guided by "her" replicoid. Depending on the extent of Gohrlay's ability to use the Bimanoid Interface, her replicoid might be the source of her encyclopedic knowledge of the Core and Deep Time. I would not be surprised to learn that Gohrlay has also been the recipient of infites.

What does any of this have to do with teleportation? And Ovaria? And who was Gohrlay's father (and...if you are produced by the ovaria, do you even have a father?) Gohrlay reminded me that we Earthlings are currently struggling to use the word "mother" in several different ways. Historically, "genetic mother" and "birth mother" were obligatorily linked, but there are technologies that uncouple conception, gestation and birth.

source
Here is how Gohrlay accounts for her existence on Earth. Lili was visiting Earth as part of a clandestine effort to create some Earthlings who could use the Bimanoid Interface. As part of that effort, Lili gave birth to Peter and Marta and, according to rumor, she apparently also gestated one of the Atlantis Clones. While on Earth, Lili also gestated Gohrlay. In the case of Marta, Lili and Andy are her genetic parents. However, according to Gohrlay, Lili had a zeptite endosymbiont with advance "ovarium functionality". It was a trivial matter (although highly illegal) for Lili to use her artificial ovarium to instantiate a "copy of Gohrlay" in the form of a conceptus that she then gestated. Further, Gohrlay claims that for technical biological reasons it is was not possible for Lili to give birth to Gohrlay. Apparently the normal way for Kac'hin to end a pregnancy is by teleporting the baby out of her uterus. Gohrlay claims that she was "born" by being teleported out of Lili.

One of the first science fiction stories about teleportation that I ever read was Theodore Sturgeon's "Baby Is Three", first published as the lead story in the October 1952 issue of Galaxy magazine. I read it when it was re-published in The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Volume Two A.

Sturgeon
According to Gohrlay, in the Ekcolir Reality, Sturgeon wrote a fairly detailed account of how teleportation technology was used within Genesaunt Civilization, including its use for technology-assisted births of alien-hybrids that were to large to pass through a birth canal.

Imagination Science

In the Ekcolir Reality
Gohrlay has been telling me about the deep history of science fiction television programs in the Ekcolir Reality. In my previous blog post I mentioned that in that Reality, science fiction television shows first appeared in 1915. Due to a strange twist in the pace and sequence of technological developments, digital television technology leap-frogged analog television and film in the Ekcolir Reality.

For example, in the 1950s of the Ekcolir Reality, the film Forbidden Planet was never made, but there was a corresponding television series called Fru'wu Planet.

Delta Files
I previously blogged about the late 1960's television program The Δ-Files that existed in the Ekcolir Reality. The Delta Files was part of a strong trend towards investigative science fiction in the Ekcolir Reality.

In the Ekcolir Reality; poster art by Frank. R. Paul
Also starting in the 1950s of the Ekcolir Reality was the long-running television program called Foundation of Reality. As mentioned in an earlier blog post, in the Ekcolir Reality, Star Trek began as a spinoff television series that was derived from Foundation of Reality.

Star Trek Seirius
One of the many Star Trek television series of the Ekcolir Reality was called Star Trek Seirius. Set in an alternate Reality in which time travelers helped the ancient Greeks develop science and advanced technology, Star Trek Seirius covered a similar story arc as did Star Trek: Enterprise in our Reality. Many aspects of the Time War were revealed to the people of Earth through the course of the 284 episodes of Enterprise.

Imagination Science Fiction
Original artwork by Willis Terry,
Harold McCauley and Richard Loehle.
In the Ekcolir Reality, the Imagination Science television show had a companion magazine that remained in print from 1915 to 1983. Imagination Science magazine was dedicated to fan fiction stories that had been inspired by the television show. Each issue had a theme such as the Preland issue shown to the right.

It is not clear that any science fiction author in the Ekcolir Reality had ever actually seen a Preland or any other alien. However, the concept of "giant Prelands" who were similar in size to humans and additional smaller elf-like Prelands permeated 20th century science fiction in the Ekcolir Reality. According to Gohrlay, much effort was put into using science fiction as a means of preparing Earthlings for first contact with the Fru'wu.

Science Fiction Revolution

Science Wonder Stories, October 1929
Cover art by Frank Rudolph Paul
I recently learned of the important role played by Raymond Cummings in the creation of the science fiction literary genre. Cummings was born in 1887 and was a contemporary of illustrator Frank Paul (born 1884). Here, I relate an interesting tale about Paul from out of Deep Time.

Isaac Asimov liked to tell the story of how he first began to read science fiction. He told his parents that magazines like Science Wonder Stories were about science and so he was allowed to read them because they must be educational. Didn't little Isaac's parents ever looked at those pulp science fiction magazine covers? Hmm, maybe the parents of science fiction writers are aliens, trying to to take over the Earth through science fiction. Actually, that's the plot of a story I wrote about how Aliens "invented and created Carl Sagan".

The Electrical Experimenter
In the Buld Reality, the universe as we know it, Frank Paul was first hired by Hugo Gernsback as an illustrator for a magazine that catered to radio enthusiasts. Starting in about 1926, Paul became an influential illustrator of science fiction magazines.

Ralph 124C 41+
Paul did the cover art for the 1925 publication of Gernsback's novel, Ralph 124C 41+, a story which was was first published in magazine format in 1911. This gadget story by Gernsback included futuristic gizmos like videophones.

Amazing Stories, August 1926
In the Buld Reality, Amazing Stories was the first pulp fiction magazine designed as an outlet for science fiction. The cover illustration to the left illustrates a story about keeping a human brain alive (The Talking Brain). Sadly, in those low bandwidth days, the poor Brain had to communicate by Morse code.

However, the pace of technological advance was quicker in the Ekcolir Reality and Gernsback launched his Science TV network in 1912. Three years later the first science fiction television program (Imagination Science) was begun by Gernsback.

Ekcolir Reality
In the Ekcolir Reality: nicotine.
As a literary genre, science fiction has always struggled to achieve the correct balance between scientific plausibility and entertaining story telling. In the Ekcolir Reality, the science fiction genre remained gravitationally locked to science and even in television and film the science fiction stories of that Reality were almost all "hard" science fiction. Asimov published many stories that passed as science fiction while containing vast amounts of factual information about the secret history of Humanity.

In the Ekcolir Reality: endosymbionts.
In the Ekcolir Reality, authors like Isaac Asimov, who had professional training in science and engineering, dominated the science fiction world. However, Editors like Gernsback still found a way to bring into the genre "outsiders". As part of what became known as the "science fiction revolution", Gernsback arranged for collaborations between authors like Asimov and Farmer. Frank Paul illustrated most of the two dozen novels that were published by the team of Asimov and Farmer in the Ekcolir Reality. Next: more television programs from Deep Time.
