Resurrection

Ted and Nemron debate the moral implications of resurrecting the human experiment. By the press of the button humanity could be reborn, but is it worth it?

Season 2, Episode 1

This philosophical conversation takes place outside of our known universe. Everything we are experiencing is an illusion or more accurately a computer simulation.  If you haven’t listened to season one’s finale,  Human Data File 365, I suggest that you do. It may make more sense to witness the conversation of these supernatural beings that spun the galaxies into existence.

The original story was written a few years ago in my book Universe Splendor. When I wrote it, I wasn’t familiar with the Simulation Theory, the idea that humanity and all of life is a complex code. The goal of writing Human Data file was to explore and ponder spiritual mysteries.

That’s what I enjoy about writing stories, to stretch myself beyond my comfort zone, to challenge my worldviews and basic beliefs.
For the record I don’t believe in the Simulation Theory, even though one of my favorite movies is the Matrix. In this modern-day classic Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, is chosen to liberate humanity from there virtual world.

The proponents of the Simulation Theory have failed to offer conclusive evidence that Earthlings are mere 1’s and 0’s inside of a computerized algorithm. If we are only sophisticated codes  or subroutines controlled and manipulated by outside forces, then free will is a misnomer. If there is no such thing as free will then the concept of morality is a complete fabrication.

If we endorse the idea of Simulation Theory, then are actions right or wrong is outside of our control. You can’t blame the person that breaks into your home and kills your Poodle since his or her actions were preordained. Society would devolve into anarchy if we firmly hold this view.

Black Dog

Depression is like a dog who’s constantly barking and biting at your heel

Because of social distancing due to COVID, depression and other forms of mental disease is on the rise. If your not suffering I’m sure you know someone who is.

When the lockdown in my city was firmly in place downtown Ottawa seemed like a ghost town, sort of like a scene from the Walking Dead. The trendy shops, book stores and restaurants were closed. The Canadian hustle and flow of the Byward Market was reduced to crickets, and the packed city buses were deserted. I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw a tumbleweed blowing in the wind.

I wish I could tell you I was emotionally immuned but it got to me. Seeing everyone wearing masks and keeping at a safe distance. For a person who feeds off the energy of other earthlings isolation could be a deathnail. I don’t mean to sound like a drama queen but it’s true.

I kind of long for a packed city bus again, are you like me? To be honest I noticed myself slipping into dark mental places. It’s hard to cheer yourself up with Netflix and stupid cat videos on Youtube when it feels like the world is coming to an end.

It really comes down to a matter of perspective and unplugging from social media. I don’t have all the answers, not even the “experts” have all the answers. We all like to be in control, I know I do, and the fear is a loss of control. Maybe it’s okay not to have all the answers.

I wrote this episode not because I have overcome the Black Dog but I’m still going through it and by the grace of God one day I will overcome these negative and destructive thoughts.

So Long Tarzan

Last time we met was on Christmas Day, that’s when I noticed something strange. He didn’t greet me at the door as he normally did, he was withdrawn and reclusive not his light hearted self.  his age was a factor, rust seeped into his bones, his athletic legs of yesterday can hardly climb up the stairs.


My old friend has seen better days, half the time  he doesn’t know where he is, we call his name but he rarely responds, a high wheezing sigh parted his lips, was it fatigue or indigestion it was difficult to tell, a doctors visit would be too expensive and we couldn’t afford insurance, we had to watch our friend sink down the drain, his mind dissolving, body faltering. 


Two weeks after the Christmas dinner we received the grim but expected message, due to complications his family decided to put him down. $150 for a trained professional to inject a needle in the skin, he did not realize that today was his demise when they placed him in a cage and drove him to Gatineau. 


His small furry body absorbed the poison, his feline tail laid flat on the table.
