Did you know that I am a trained logician? It was a long time ago, but I had the most amazing professor, George Smith, at Tufts U. I took a few courses with him. Prof Smith assigned Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll in our Formal Logic class.
My new blog post is dedicated to Prof. Smith:
The other day I saw a rabbit wearing Google Glass. Actually, I didn’t notice the rabbit was wearing a pair of those fantastical eyewear at first. But when I saw a video of me bad mouthing nearly half of the American voters on YouTube the next day, I suddenly remembered the curious bunny wearing a pair of sleek glasses behind the bar.I should have realized that he was recording me.
#TheTimeliners - A Crowdsourced SciFi/Fantasy Adventure Novel
Imagine that timelines are waves emanating from each of us. Each of our personal timelines emanates forwardly and outwardly. Our timeline bounces off other people’s timelines, creating cross-connections. Mapped out, the waves of all these timelines creates the meta-timeline that we all move through.
Among the masses of people are an unique people called Timeliners. Most Timeliners are Refractors. When a timeline wave hits a Refractor, it splits into multiple timelines. How many depends on the age and strength of the Refractor. Older and, to a lesser degree, stronger Refractors create more splits.
A much smaller number of the Timeliners are Convergers. As timeline waves hit Convergers, they are consolidated into a single timeline that is shaped by their own decisions. Their future is singular and unwritten. So they couldn’t, in theory, travel to the future (if it were possible?).
But the singular timelines of Convergers can be split again by Refractors. Convergers have worked for millennia to guide the meta-timeline by gathering and converging individual waves to nudge the other trajectories of the meta-timeline. Sadly, a dark few of the Convergers have taken to killing Refractors to increase their control over the meta-timeline. But, it’s only a matter of time before they turn on their fellow Convergers, too.
OK, I’m not really good at writing fiction. So I want to crowdsource this idea for a living SciFi/Fantasy novel. If any of you want to take a hand at writing a chapter in this story, have at it. Just remember to use the hashtag #TheTimeliners so we can all read them.

While we need to hear from our nation’s political and thought leaders on social media, too many of them are either not there or there halfheartedly. Here is my latest blog post exploring this problem.
