Surely the destiny of our species must be to explore and colonize space. We absolutely must become a space-faring race, learning to live on other planets and eventually reaching the stars.
Worlds beyond imagining could be ours. Or, we could become ever more lazy and cowardly. We could shy away from the toil and danger that will necessarily go hand-in-hand with space exploration -- eventually to face a dull, Earthbound extinction.
A look at some of the astounding possibilities available to those who dare to step further out.
A look at some cool, weird or quirky science and the ever-evolving, fascinating mess that is modern society.
We land spacecraft on comets. We send robots to look for life on Mars. We massacre innocents in the name of religion, tribe, ideology. One day soon, we may create or encounter intelligences far greater than our own. Then what?
An attempt to look at the strange stuff going on right now -- and where it may be leading us in time to come.
Assorted notes, epigraphs and excerpts from authors of times to come.
Of special note, selections from:
- The Collected Works of Henrikus Grobius (well-known essayist and sociam commentator)
- Entries from Signs and Portents: A guide to the Apocalypse
- The Best of the Skellig Michael Press, 2025-2030
In the portfolio section, you'll find a selection of articles, videos and patient information written for clients over the last few years.
Topics range from cancer and cardiovascular medicine to nanotechnology, astronomy and even math. I have been especially interested in the area of stroke and how people can recover function following one of these devastating events.
