Investigative Science Fiction
What is the subject of these on-going investigations? For stories that are set in the Exodemic Fictional Universe, the main theme is that aliens from distant galaxies long ago visited Earth.
Even the Creators of the human species expected us to become extinct and quietly fade away. As far as I can tell, we should view the bumpha and the Nereids as being responsible for our existence, but they ended up being surprised by their own creation.
A funny thing happened on the way to human extinction...

|Asimov the time lord|
But if aliens arrived on Earth 2,000,000,000 years ago, then why do we have so little evidence of their visit? And why is all of the available evidence in the form of science fiction stories?
Asimov's analogue in the Foundation Reality was infested with a swarm of infites that came from a positronic robot. It was from those information nanites that Asimov learned about the future of Earth and the rise of a First and Second Foundation in his far future. Soon thereafter Asimov became a time traveler and helped bring into existence the Asimov Reality.
The Trysta Truce
Today I was discussing the Asimov Reality with Gohrlay and I asked her why both the Interventionists and the Overseers of Earth were content to quietly work on genetic modifications of humans during the space age in that Reality. In reply, Gohrlay casually mentioned what she called the Trysta Truce.

However, according to Gohrlay, the Trysta Truce began with a sneaky trick played by R. Gohrlay on Grean. R. Gohrlay agreed to remove her agents from Earth. To comply with the terms of the truce, R. Rycleu was dismantled and that robot's parts were turned over to Grean. However, rather than hand Trysta over to Grean, a clone of Trysta was substituted and Trysta continued to reside on Earth.

|Return to Hemmal|
My blogging slowed last month while I did some work on the beginning chapters of Trysta and Ekcolir. Now I'm getting a persistent itch to update the first chapter of Foundations of Eternity.
I'm already working on a new blog post for September that will be my celebration of 50 years of Star Trek. Also in the queue is a tribute to Isaac Asimov that I will post in 2017, 25 years after his untimely death in 1992.
