So brilliant and inspiring! Athena, you are a true superhero. We are not bound by the limits of the civilization in which we live. We artists can transform our civilization, for what we create is of far more value to the world than the time we give away for a paycheck.

Buy Murder of Crows too. I've been waiting for this book for years since I read Murder of Crows. Singularly brilliant piece of work by a singularly brilliant writer. Here's where you can order Murder of Crows https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Crows-Book-Pillars-Dawn/dp/1475098340, and Athena BlissQuest's website http://wisegoddess.com/blog/

Here's what the road out front of the farm here south of Corvallis looked like last weekend (Feb 5, 2017). Nature stretching her muscles.

I'll post an article on this thread within the week. Athena is making a point that not only applies to writers and artists, but anyone living in western civilization.

Fellow writers and artists: my friend Ezra Shanti​ has worked his ass off to create this music and art festival. I had signed on as a vendor to sell my novels and am unable to attend. They could use more vendors. This is an opportunity to set up a table for $50 tomorrow and promote and sell your books, or art.

Contact Ezra Shanti at ezrashanti@gmail.com. Below is their website and here is a link to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1460656074233369/

Articles such as the one I just read in Nautilus, "How to Turn Your Dog Off
Suspended animation is becoming a life-saving medical procedure" by Rene Ebersole (March 5, 2015), inspire and excite me about what may happen in our future. This inspiration and excitement is a big part of why I write novels about our future as human beings. This is an article about a biomedical scientist, Mark Roth, who is researching the use of Elemental Reducing Agents (ERAs)—compounds normally present in the body in small concentrations, which in greater amounts can slow down the cells’ oxygen burning. At the correct concentration ERAs can put organisms, such as human beings into suspended animation, allowing them to survive medical procedures they may not otherwise survive. 

Rene states it so: 
While Roth’s ambitions for suspended animation center on clinical applications, he doesn’t deny it may one day fulfill our sci-fi fantasies. “Eventually we will use it to experience environments we currently don’t experience—underwater, space—and do that more frequently because we know how,” he says. “There’s no end to the possibilities that could affect society.”

In my future series of novels, Hand of the Archer a group of scientists and adventurers build the first starship. Remaining determined to become interstellar explorers they leave Earth despite the Armageddon of WWIII and travel to the star system of Delta Pavonis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_Pavonis), about 20 light years away. The journey is possible due to the scientific breakthroughs of fusion propulsion and a means of suspended animation. The trip takes around 3 centuries ship time and 380 years from Earth's frame of reference (not sure about my math here yet). The point is it takes a long time to travel those 20 light years and without a method of suspended animation, the journey could not be made. The mass of the ship had to be kept to a minimum, precluding the use of sustaining many generations of humans during those 3 centuries.

This allows for the major premise of this novel series. In the nearly 4 centuries on Earth people recover from WWIII and rebuild civilization, becoming a single massive interstellar society ruled by a single government. When they encounter the people who originally arrived in the Delta Pavonis system, their civilizations have diverged considerably. This sets up a familiar situation from our human history. The original people on Delta Pavonis become the aboriginals there, and the big colonizing civilization does what every civilization has done: they work themselves up to begin committing genocide. However, in this series of novels the Native Americans/First Nation/the aboriginals win.

It is exciting to begin seeing the actual technology that could make the science of a science fiction story such as this plausible. I am keeping my eyes open for an interstellar propulsion system. I hear NASA is working on a warp drive.
