My Thoughts & Ideas Behind ‘Anomaly’

Standard

Ok, so please accept my apologies, this blog has turned into an essay and it has been a long time coming. I’ve wanted to write about the ideas behind the science concepts and suggestions which feature in my book Anomaly (The Soul Prophecies) now for a while, but you know, life gets in the way, and hammering out the thoughts in my head in a way that would make sense to everyone has been tricky. The certified physicists struggle with the physic topics that I’ve attempted to write about and I’m wholly unqualified to explain them.

The beginning of this story is a little bit complicated, you don’t really know what’s going on until you start to turn more pages, but then that’s the whole point of this story.

Written from the point of view of Marlon Smith, the story starts with Marlon on a beach in the afterlife. The afterlife is a virtual reality, when the people of Earth die they are immediately uploaded to this virtual world… Continue reading
