Let’s Unlearn Capitalism Myths

I think this needs said: The framework that society shoved into us is capitalistic and it tries to teach us that the capitalistic view of reality is the ONLY view. This socialization is full of myths that aren’t actually true. There are many worlds within our biosphere of Earth, and we need to understand that… Continue reading Let’s Unlearn Capitalism Myths

Nucleation Review

Nucleation by Kimberly Unger Overall Thoughts: For a science fiction tale, this book not only impressed me with its use of physics, specifically entanglement of particles, but blew me away with its scope of imagination.

There Is No Moderates

Y’all, I think most won’t like what I got to say, but it needs said: There is no such thing as a middle ground. There is no moderate in America. You are either: 1. for genocide OR 2. Not for genocide. Republican party has thrown their lot in with number 1 to the point they… Continue reading There Is No Moderates

Poetry: Birth

Birth by Aidan Zingler (fractal also by me) Scattered enriched guts splattered across the skies, Bubbling froth, seething energy permeating space-time Wisp of a second, our existence overlooked by the brilliant magnitude of a 13.7 billion year old. Intrepid explorers, we stumble into the black vastness of a giant, violent ocean — star-birthing hurricanes, with… Continue reading Poetry: Birth

Lore: The Planet of Elivera

The Planet of Elivera Elivera is a world-build project I have been working on since middle school. Over time, I learned more about the techniques of world-building, and so was able to refine and improve upon the lore to dig deeper into the intricacies of the Elivera Universe. In this post, I’ll talk about the… Continue reading Lore: The Planet of Elivera

Thoughts on Gun Control and America’s Gun Violence Problem

Guns were invented for killing, and yet they are barely regulated at all in some states. Human lives should matter more than guns, and the science of gun control shows that it works in stemming gun violence. We are literally the only ‘developed’ country in the world who has this problem.   This is a… Continue reading Thoughts on Gun Control and America’s Gun Violence Problem

My second poem for National Poetry Month is a Rhymed Tercet. The title of the Fractal is the Echoes of Spacetime. Creation by A. A.
