Loop

Welcome to my story “Loop”. I decided to combine two different formats, from the conventional writing of a story and mixing it with the screenplay format. By no means is this new format acceptable by each industry. However, I thought to add both, so the reader can experience a screenplay and book story all-in-one, just for fun.

Please enjoy my story :

SCENE 1

FADE IN :

QUEEN SIRI XIII

“So much has changed in the last five hundred years since our last Trans-Universal Jump. I expected Human Species Catalogue 4060 – 7274367 would have progressed substantially by now,” Queen Siri XIII – Lord of The Living God said, looking over the video transcripts.

She paused. Her worried look turned into a spark of anger. Her stone-cold eyes pierced the group of commanders, as she walked sternly past each one.

The Queen dressed in the most elaborate gown, hand-stitched with gold lace, draped with integrated see-through material naturally designed by the diamond beetles from planet SIRUS 5. You seen this before ; the ancient Egyptians replicated the GODS to a “T”. Throughout the Egyptian dynasty, their Pharaoh’s and Queens made every effort to copy the original Queen Siri X (the ancestral mother of Queen Siri XII ). The Egyptians went as far as thinking they were god themselves.

The integrate jewels showcased the luxury and importance of Queen Siri XIII. The resemblance of Egyptian Nefertiti, Queen and Royal wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten was indeed astonishing.

Queen Siri XIII ( the true Lord of the Living God) had projected a five thousand year reign. She decided to celebrate her one thousand year anniversary on Earth, for the first time since their ancestors arrival, 150,000 years ago.


[NARRATOR (V.O.) Voice Over of same Scene ( it means you hear the person talking but don’t see him/her in the scene, whatsoever) ]

I know what you’re thinking…

How is it possible one Queen can live a thousand years, never mind entertaining a five thousand year reign ? If you’re thinking of conventional space travel to reach your destination, you are so wrong. Most of us have heard of wormholes and black-holes, but again, that’s not it. Think on the terms of a free-floating “primordial black hole”. That would be a pinhole in comparison to the conventional supermassive black hole ; closes one scientists know of, is located in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy, 27,000 light-years away. However, the pinhole were talking about (believe it or not) is within our very own solar system.


Queen Siri XIII glanced over to the commander in charge ”Didn’t I stress how important this species is to us ?!”

COMMANDER CENTURION 797 (we use capital letters when we first introduce a new character in the scene), bowed his head in submission,” Yes my Queen. Please forgive me my Queen, if I may elaborate…”

Queen Siri strolls over to her throne and sits down. The room is so quiet you could hear a pin drop. The unsettling silence projected fear within the ranks. Her sparkling emerald eyes pierced her commanders with disgust; she then proceeded to admire her long sharp nails. The Queen snapped her fingers. A young maiden appeared from the background standing within a small brigade of servants. The young girl swiftly kneeled, bowing in front of her majesty. She quickly attended to the queen’s request, polishing her nails with some kind of gold paint solution.

The long wait for Queen Siri to answer Commander Centurion 797’s question, made him extremely nervous. Her anger was evident. It was clear this Centurion had failed his mission miserably. Somehow he must convince the queen he had no control over these pesky spoiled little human species, she adored so much. He must ease her anger. Her wrath was already a fearfully legion, since the Queen Siri XIII reign. It was said her vengeance is so sever, you would rather jump into a pit of molten lava before facing her demise upon you.

We won’t even mention of how she would respond to revenge ; complete horror couldn’t come close to the word described. Rumours has it she had her opponent’s fleshy meat stripped from their bones while they were still alive, then feed it to her sacred royal cat.

Centurion 797 takes the courage, speaking up,” Please my queen, can’t I at least explain what happened?”

“Don’t you dare speak to me without my consent!” said the Queen in an undeniable tone of rage,” Can your little brain of yours even comprehend what you’ve done!”

Centurion 797 quivers with fear,” I’m…I…m…a…I’m sorry. I really am sorry, but…”

“But nothing!” said the Queen spitting out her words,” What can you possibly say that will even come close to undoing the harm that has already been done to these H-U—M-A-N—S !”

She pauses to compose herself, in a calmer voice, she said,” It’s vital this species succeeds. They must! “

Centurion 797 bows before her majesty,” I plead your forgiveness my Queen, Lord of the Living God…please…you must hear me out. It’s a matter of life or death to the human race, altogether. It’s in your best interest to hear what I have to say.”

Queen Siri sits back in her throne. She thinks how brave this commander is ; either that or he’s a complete fool. She ponders in silence, then speaks sternly,” Alright. Just let me warn you, if there isn’t a shred of evidence that the human species are in grave danger, then you’ll wish you weren’t alive. Is. That. Clear.”

Centurion 797 nods in agreement,” Thank you my gracious Queen. I adore your generosity. May you one day seat beside the Lords of the Gods in the afterlife. I honour your patience and forgiveness. “

Queen Siri rolls her eyes. Why must these commanders pretend to suck up so much. Can’t they just do the job they were designed to do from the very beginning, instead of all the boring politics? She snaps back,” Enough already! Just give me the facts, and then, and only then, will I decide my judgement upon you.”

“Yes my Queen!”, the Centurion said,” It’s appears Human Species 4060 – 7274367 have mastered our technology behind the gate of what they refer as ” Dark Matter”. Their team of astrophysicist have finally figured out the equation leading them ( totally by accident I must add) to our back door gate.

“Wait!” Her majesty stands up abruptly, “ Are you telling me they understand our cloaking mirrored universe?”

“Yes, your highness. Not only that, but they have now sent a team of astronauts to explore our hidden door ! “ the Centurion said with conviction,” It’s of grave coincidences to them if they find the key to another universal dimension. They’ll learn the truth and no longer…”

Queen Siri sharply interrupts,” and they will no longer need us. Yes. They’re growing…maybe that’s a good thing. We can’t keep babysitting this species forever, you know…”

“ Yes my Queen, but what if…” Centurion 797 says in haste,” what if they’re not ready? They could release the evil spirits of darkness. It’s quite possible, their inability to understand the phantom between life and death, they may accidentally release the Prince of Darkness, himself. Must I remind you what happened to our ancestors?”

“Must you remind me! “ lashed out Queen Siri, “ How dare you speak to me in that tone!”

“I beg of you my lord queen highness, but this is of the most importance. Even if you kill me, it won’t matter to any of us, if the humans release the Black Angels of Darkness. Opening the pandora box will indeed mean the end to all civilizations across countless universes throughout the cosmic timeline. It would mean timeless implosion of each universe and everything in it. A massive domino effect of no return. The Black Angels of Darkness would systematically tear apart trillions of universes apart, like popping balloons, a …

The Queen carries his words,”…a timeless darkness of hell. Yes. Where time and space will never exist again. It would make the wrath of their God seem like child’s play. It would mean their imaginary devil would become a real entity. Their worse fears wouldn’t even be close to what would really happen. An timeless Armageddon of hell. All souls would disintegrate. No more afterlife. No more hope. No more life, as we know it, would ever exist again. The Blackness of Armageddon would become a continuous loop with no end.”

She heads over to the invisible force-field windows from her Spaceship, overlooking planet Earth, “ It looks so peaceful from space, doesn’t it centurion ? Who would think one tiny species could destroy the fabric of existence. Who would of thought of that when our ancestors transformed their evolutionary timeline ? “

Queen Siri laughs nervously, “ To think our ancestors crossed genetics with theirs, in order to save our species. Now they may destroy us anyway. What have we done…what have we done..”

Mission to the Unknown- Act 2

Mission to the Unknown

ACT TWO – The unknown always leads to speculation, be it today’s society or three thousand years ago. Mankind has strived to explain the unknown, either by religious manuscripts or by science.

[Note : Before reading please read the beginning Chapter “The Black Stream of Energy – Act 1 ]

It wasn’t any different on May 30th, 2031 either, as astrophysicist Dr James Filmmore sent satellite CANUSA 1 into the unknown phenomenon only three light years away from earth. The whole world watched in awe, as CANUSA 1 entered into the fluctuation of space, only known as Dark Energy ( a cloaked wave of energy). With all the UFO sightings in the past 4000 years, its been loosely speculated, it could be the hide out for our alien visitors. However, the religious community strongly denied such a thing. The scientists were baffled, but were determined to explain this strange phenomenon with the help of science. As always, the various media used their spin on it, promoting more viewers to their platform. Media wasn’t about reporting the truth anymore, they were concerned in attracting an audience. In turn, advertisers would fund their objective goal of making money ; as long as the companies would see a return on their investment.

So you see. There it is. Our society ran on half-truths and the constant greed of the all-mighty dollar, believing what suited them the best.

Dr Filmmore’s goal concentrated on the hard science and only the science, to explain the unknown. However, after six months of loosing CANUSA 1, without receiving a shred of evidence, he had his doubts. How can a high tech state-of-the-art satellite send nothing back ? It was indeed baffling, to say the least. He knew he had to send humans, to get to the bottom of this ; James understood it had to be him, along with a committed team, because he couldn’t live with the thought of loosing anyone else. After loosing his daughter Jenni, it would be inconceivable to loose anyone on this mission. They had to be strong and have determined willpower, to make this mission successful. It was clear, Dr Filmmore and a small crew had to make a sacrifice for the betterment of mankind.

Three years past before James could find anyone crazy enough to fund his bizarre mission. He was all about to loose hope, when the most unusual source decided to take on his request. Entrepreneur trillionaire Mr Wiseman was well known for his 30 billion Vegas Resort “ The Wiseman Casino & Resort “ featuring science-fiction themed rooms on each floor, dedicated to Star Wars, Star Trek and the newest trilogy known as “Black Angels”. Apparently Black Angels related to a storyline about our ancient alien ancestors who discovered earth and were responsible for genetically transforming Ape-man into Homo-Sapiens. Black Angel fans were adamant the backstory was the gospel truth ! Mr Wiseman was extremely candid about Black Angels background, saying it explains why mankind are who they are today.

James Filmmore is a scientist and the mere speculation of another species on earth, wasn’t scientifically proven, as of yet. However, James wouldn’t turn down a trillionaire, no matter how eccentric he was. Any means of funding was essential to answering his “Black Energy Theses”.

It wasn’t for another two years before the legal requirements were ironed out, and it still wasn’t clear what Mr Wiseman motive was behind the funding. No matter. James and space engineers spent the next five years developing ‘Pegasus’, the most efficient streamlined spacecraft to ever be made in the 21st century.

Finally! On May 1st 2039, Pegasus was ready to launch on the aging Moon base ‘Lunar Surface Asset Deployment’ first built in 2029. Since then, NASA’s moon base now houses 3000 souls with diversified careers, from engineers, scientists, architects, to a brigade of chefs. It was an obvious conclusion, it would be a lot cheaper to send a spacecraft from the moon then to worry about the fuel costs and the constant gravity strains on earth.

Pegasus

Pegasus’ featured :

Nano-Mag – the newly development of magnesium based alloy with nanotechnology, changing the very fabric of this new flexible metal. In 2019, Magnesium based alloy was considered the World’s strongest and lightest metal until the nano feature made it stronger and lighter. In fact, it was so light, the membrane could easily be stretched by hand. So thin, the membrane was calculated in micro-milligrams ; thinner than human membrane cells.

No Windows – although it didn’t have the conventional gold-plated windows, it’s AI computer would allow any pilot to see the exterior with its new imaging system. First developed in 2020, VR ( virtually reality) by game developers, such as XBox and PS4, investors took the next step to using it for passenger airplanes. In 2025, commercial aircrafts saved money by introducing this new technology.

Computer-voice operated – the pilot can easily instruct the spacecraft by merely giving it a verbal command.

Ion Thrusters – “ionizes a neutral gas by extracting some electrons out of atoms, creating a cloud of positive ions. These thrusters rely mainly on electrostatics as ions are accelerated by the Coulomb force along an electric field. * “ Top-of-the-Line engine.

Interior Gravity Force – After NASA studies of humans-in-space, it was clear bone density and long term solar radiation greater effected the astronaut crew, that head to Mars in 2030. Therefore, it was essential to have artificial gravity within the interior of the spacecraft.

Lumbar Sponge Seats – a new form of nano-sponge, automatically shapes to any human form, causing less discomfort on our backs and tailbones. First designed by NASA and used by Tesla in 2030, it made long distance trips strapped to a seat more enjoyable. However, crew members had their own private quarters to catch-up on their sleep, so it was indeed something Dr. Filmmore insisted on because of his poor back.

Emergency Sub-Craft “Gemini” – in case of emergency, a backup mini craft with a beacon was necessary. Its automatic trajectory was earth.

Of course, the Pegasus had all the necessary supplies, firearms, tools, and scientific equipment for any long deep space voyage. As well, the ship was capable of travelling at an nominal speed of 140,012 km per hr ( 87,000 miles/hr) expected to reach its destination in 2.6 years. Pretty much like satellite CANUSA 1 did previously. This time (with humans aboard) it was crucial they didn’t disappear without a trace, like its predecessor.

THE MISSION

The crew of four were trained in long distance space voyages. Of course, Dr. Filmmore was the lead astrophysicist in charge of the whole mission. After 5000 specialized candidates, three astronauts were selected.

Doctor Zulu : He’s an esteemed specialized Geneticist and physician in his 40’s, African-American, who seemed more carefree then a man of science. However, when it came to the nitty gritty, his genius kicked in. His nickname is “Dr Gene” for his noble prize in genetics. On his birth certificate, it’s Femi Zulu Mud. Femi apparently means “adored by god”.

Twenty pounds overweight (by NASA’s terms) but he won out due to his skills.

Navy Flight Officer Devyani Stone : Devyani is of East India descent from Canada 🇨🇦, who became a Navy Flight Officer, simply because she loves to fly. She is the best-of-the-best when it comes to flying any craft on earth, only in her 30’s. Her name Devyani means “ Like a Goddess, Serving the gods, Chariot of the gods, One invested with divine power (Daughter of Shukraacharya); Like a Goddess“.* Without a doubt, she was indeed a Goddess with her charm and stunning looks. Due to her Emerald-green eyes, everyone close to her, nicknamed her “Jewel”. Along with jet black hair, her complexion stood out. A strong intellect with a passion in ancient history. In this mission she is the Pilot controlling the craft.

Biologist Alisha Forman : Last but not least , Alisha is dedicated to the scientific study of life and all living forms. Original from Sweden, she graduated from Cambridge with a PHD in molecular biology. In her late 20’s, Alisha has a strong love for animals, caring and fighting for. Due to her beliefs, she refuses to eat meat and an activist. Not liked much for her strong opinions, she’s still considered the best biologist in the world. Unfortunately no one has ever given her a nickname. Dr. Filmmore is only concerned with her expertise.

The crew is ready for the long mission ahead. It will take every ounce of sacrifice to make this a successful mission. The mission to the unknown has just begun!

Writers Life

Writers Life

Writers Life – it’s not glorious and the most part not rewarding to everyone. However, it’s part of me. Writing and art drives my inner soul – it’s me.

The above photo says it all :

10 THINGS People Say to Creative Writers ( But shouldn’t)

1. So you’re still writing your little book/poem/etc.?

2. Must be nice not having a real job.

3. Writing doesn’t sound too difficult.

4. I always thought I’d write a book after I retire, once I have some time to kill.

5. Wait a second, creative writing degrees are a real thing ?

6. Have you been published yet ?

7. Can I be a character in one of your stories?

8. So I have this great idea I think you should be using in your book…

9. Aren’t writers just professional liars ? They tell stories for a living, after all.

10. You’re writing a book ? Tell me everything.

Here’s more :

11. So what do you do in real life ?

12. How many books have you published so far ?

13. How come you’re not famous, like Stephen King ?

14. Oh, com’n ! Everyone knows how to write a story.

I believe all writers can relate. I’ve heard it all. A writers life has little support unless it becomes a blockbuster movie or a Best Seller. When I first decided to publish a book, I was pretty naive of the whole process. On top of that I wanted to write a cookbook.

What was I thinking?!

Getting sucked into self-publishing by dishing out $5000 to a self-publisher, I was still optimistic. Had these grandeur thoughts of becoming a Best Seller, selling millions of copies across Canada and United States.

The reality is more prevalent ; “Canadian Recipes of the Great White North” sold just enough to get my money back. On a positive note, it reached the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan. In Canada it sold locally and I also received requests from United States.

I found out quickly, self-publishing is thrown into the mix of hundreds of millions of other cookbooks. Not only is it expensive, your book selling on-line or a conventional bookstore takes a whopping 40 – 45 percent of your earnings. On top of that ( this may happen to you) the publishing company is constantly up for sell to larger publishers. On an average, self-publishers either sell or go bankrupt, due to competition. To add insult to injury, if the publisher is sold ( which happened to me) to an American publisher, the USA will make you pay taxes on any book you sell. Sure – you can get it back, however the process is daunting. You must fill out a five page report w/ all your personal information and then send it to a box office number. No way ! A Box Office Number ? That just doesn’t seem legit to me.

SO – You see, it’s not worth the hassle. I’m sure they do that on purpose. If it was a lot of money I would go to a lawyer, that way you’re protecting yourself.

The above “10 Things People say to Creative Writers” is so true, it’s scary – lol.

When I say cookbook, they go…”Oh…it’s just another cookbook. You’re NOT a writer.”

Meanwhile I write tons of science-fiction to reality short-stories that could possibly be made into a book. But now I’m pessimistic to the whole publishing routine. It’s clear, the only way to get your manuscript out is to send it in for submission. Submissions sound promising doesn’t it ? Sorry, it’s not that simple. First and foremost you have to find a publisher willing to take your manuscript. Second, it most probably lay on a pile of emails or deleted, due to the first couple of sentences they may read. The reality is, you may never get your manuscript to publishing.

What I’ve learned :

  • Write because you want to tell your story. Never write thinking you’re the next J.K.Rowling.
  • Write for yourself, maybe others will appreciate your work.
  • I write not to impress others.
  • I write because it’s my inner soul, it’s what I feel inside. It’s part of who I am.
  • Writing is a burning passion others may not understand. Only writers understand.
  • Try NOT to become disillusioned or depressed. Just realize the ‘Arts’ is extremely competitive and the most part unrewarding.
  • Only write if it comforts you. YOU find it personally rewarding.
  • Don’t expect to become the next best seller. There’s a ton of politics involved in that scenario.
  • Write from your heart. Never mind what others may think. It’s your story. Tell it as it is.
  • Read and read more…

I believe I’ve covered everything. You may want to add on to this list. I would love to hear your story.

Have you read my short-stories or screenplays ?

My Stories

My Art

Anyway – I thought this post of “10 Things People say to Creative Writers” is a prefect example.

Do you know, if Stephen King didn’t get notice for his book “The Shining” by a movie producer, he wouldn’t have become as famous as he is. However, his horror genre was a big hit to cult followers.

Getting your written work or art recognized is like winning a lottery, or its politically driven by artsy-class people and publishers. IF by chance your book is recognized by a movie producer or director, then it’s easy-street for you.

Are We Alone ? UFO

Queen Siri XII

Are we alone – PHASE THREE

Another phrase I enjoy by professor Steven Hawking,”…We are so insignificant that I can’t believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed my eyes.”

In the last 50 years it’s scientifically evident our human species are a very small equation in life itself.  Science has unmistakably proven the obvious. WE ARE NOT ALONE.  The only problem?  We are millions of light years from our closest neighbours ; or are WE ?

However, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.  I believe scientists are going to find evidence of life, a long time ago on Mars before mankind even had a foothold on earth. Unfortunately, if it is discovered, politics and religion will keep the truth from the public. It’s human nature to keep hanging onto the past, along with financial greed and controlling the masses through religious beliefs. The only way a past civilization or UFO will be made public, it would be through a disgruntled scientist. However, with our social media, most wouldn’t believe the truth, even if it was in front of their eyes. Most people are considered “followers” ( aka : sheep) brainwashed from one thing to another. For me, it would have to be scientifically proven with clear precise data, from live feed videos to scientific studies.

 Mars or Bust

How complex was life?  I guess, we will see by 2030 – 35.

In our modern world, the UFO phenomenon is mixed with science-fiction to unexplained entities. Unexplained Flying Objects was a going concern throughout history, but in the late 1940’s, it became front and center due to several unknown crashes of UFO’s occurrences, such as the Roswell UFO incident. The United States Air Force conducted a series of research into this phenomenon, known as,”Project Blue Book”. Project Blue Book is a complex study, so I won’t go into it, other then, five percent of UFO cases were thought to be credible. I suggest you read about the study HERE, or the actual FBI Case documents.

Albert Einstein phrased it perfectly,” There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

AND

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” 

― Albert Einstein

Einstein was indeed a genius. 

If life has even a slight chance to grow, it always will.  There’s no way mankind is the only species in the countless sea of dimensional universes. We would have to be rather arrogant to think such a thing. It’s also apparent, mankind’s DNA revolutionary mould was somehow altered.

Something incredible happened! 

” For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination…

― Steven Hawking 

With that knowledge, it was easy to conceive the next step in our evolutionary timeline.  Is it possible another species lived on earth before mankind was ever conceived?  

I believe, yes.  Of course ! 

Black Angels

OUR ANCESTORS

And, this is when my screenplay BLACK ANGELS was born.  It’s based on the theory, mankind was once visited by an Alien Intelligent Species, before mankind evolved into homo-sapiens.  It’s even possible to believe our alien ancestors crossed their genetic DNA with our distant relatives, the Denisovans or Denisova hominins.  Some refer it as the smoking-gun to the “missing link”, but with deadly consequences.  

Is it possible, the evolution of mankind was altered?  

The theory of manipulating our evolutionary timeline has proven to have drastically changed who we are today, “Homo-Sapiens”.  Due to our genetic make-up, human beings have evolved into a hostile war-hungry species in the last 100,000 years.  Historical accounts of mankind has proven our savage instinct, with today’s crippling news of psychopathic killers evident throughout our world.  

But, with all of this, there’s still a trace of compassion.  It means somewhere in our DNA, mankind has the hope to survive and evolve into a peaceful society.  

But, the biggest fear ? 

We may run out of time.  It may be due to our own demise or a natural catastrophe. Whatever happens to human beings in our future will solely depend on our present actions today.  We must explore to save our species or it’s just a matter of time we end up like the dinosaur era.  

Extinct!

Theological Research

Black Angels

Before reading “Theological Research” please begin with my “Journey” to understand the essence of where I’m leading you to…

Phase Two – Theological Research

In order to understand, “Where we came from ?”, it’s essential to ponder into the Theological Research of mankind. Why is it, man-made religions has such a foothold on us ? What makes us so vulnerable to an imaginary God in the sky ? Is it because we’re a selfish species, where we can’t come to terms with our inevitable death?

I rely on science, to the point where the lines become murky, flowing into the mysterious “grey area”.

Heading into the ambiguous region is where the heart of science-fiction takes over. My screenplay “Black Angels”, may or may not be science-fiction. What was science-fiction, isn’t science-fiction today, as science has grown into a better understanding of ourselves and the universe around us. Black Angels is my collection of countless years of research on man-made religions, scriptural scrolls, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian writings and ancient archeological discoveries throughout our planet.  My search for the truth was nine long years not including the seven years of rewrites.  

The first part of my research, lead me to investigate the “missing-link” of our ancestors and God fearing religions. It was essential to ask these questions:

  • Who made us and why?  
  • Is the bible really the “word” of God?  
  • Why does mankind rely on faith alone?  
  • And if there is a God, why would he allow innocent children to die?  
  • Free Will is always the answer, but isn’t that just an easy out?   

Unfortunately religion has plagued our world from the very beginning, killing all in the name of GOD.  Years of studying various religions throughout our world, it was evident.  Religion was man-made in order to control the masses, using its power and wealth to rule above others. However, do I believe in God ?  

The answer is “Yes”, but not the way you may believe in your God.

Professor Steven Hawking elegantly phrases it this way,” … While there’s life, there is hope.  I am not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.”

I agree.

I too am not religious to society’s norm.  God is an important equation, but my “God” existence is likely not how most religious people think of as their God.  God to me, is a spiritual organized existence, where an essence of our souls will follow into the centre of its realm, unconscious to what is next.

But wait.

I’m not talking about us as individuals flowing around the cosmos like spiritual ghosts.  Nothing like that at all. I believe once our biological human-shell dies, it turns to dust,(unless, of course, it’s well preserved).  Generally speaking, there’s a small part of us, referred to as a soul. It may be, it’s our souls that regenerate into a new life. This means, something beyond our understanding governs the motion of life and death.  

With death there’s always life – somewhere.

Throughout history, countless prophets claim they were the “human existence” of God, I believe each tried to convince their people that everyone is capable of being a part of God.  In a way, its true.  For every religion there’s a prophet, leading the way to a better spiritual self, respecting others without greed or selfishness.  If we didn’t live in fear and took the time to think of others, our world could live in harmony.  

Famous prophets of yesterday and today all have the same message. But, mankind always seem to turn it around into something evil, benefiting their own cause. If Jesus saw what was happening today, he would be distraught.  Jesus said to his people, Ephesians 2:18 “…for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.”

Jesus is indeed speaking the truth. 

Through God, our souls have access to the Spirit of God. Jesus is simply stating, “Every man, woman and child has full access to the spiritual realm of existence.”  Through Jesus himself, was a simpler way to explain to his people, salvation through him was better than the rulers of Rome.  Of course, the Jewish priests were outraged by Jesus act.  In those times, it’s blasphemy to announce you are the Son of God.  

It didn’t turn out well for Jesus.  

As far as the Jewish aristocrats were concerned, Jesus was a man, just another prophet of that era in time.  Unfortunate for Jesus, they felt he went too far and should be punished, using the Romans to carry out their dirty work.  

Did he preform all the miracles as said?  

I’m unconvinced.  Even today, people exaggerate for personal gain, either to save their own skin or from being such a loyal follower.  Followers will over-exaggerate placing their prophet as a “Holy Devine Sign to Salvation”.  Jesus was one of the most convincing prophets during the Roman era. But some scholars believe, “…Roman aristocrats used Jesus to control the poor.”   In fact, it’s been said, the Romans convinced Jesus to act as a “Saviour” of his people.  It was actually,”…a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire.” But things went terribly wrong when Jesus started to believe in his part.  It was just a matter of time before they had to get rid of Jesus.  Never did they realize, Jesus became a martyr, a symbolism of Christianity and freedom.  

If it wasn’t for Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great, who wanted Christianity for his own selfish gain, this form of religion would have become just another cult of its time.  But, “…In 313, Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian” leading the way to one of the most powerful religions of its day, right up to the very present. If you go back in history, how many prophets of God have there been?  You would be surprise to know, there were 124,000 prophets, not including the last 100 years. 

That’s a lot of prophets, wouldn’t you say? 

As always, mankind uses another for something in return.  We are unbelievably a selfish arrogant race.  Will we ever free ourselves from the grip of man-made religion? 

It all depends on our destiny.

PHASE ONE – The Journey
My seven year journey is indeed a long rewarding experience, even though it’s from behind my desk, in the comfort of my home.  
By simply writing a story, I  can imagine exploring a distant planet throughout the vast regions of our dimensional universes.  The overall goal of writing and rewriting, is to tell a compelling story, in order to provoke emotion and action through my viewers.  In essence, screenwriting and short stories are best expressed by my phrase :
  • “I envision a story and bring it to life”.
Black Angels Existence
My storyline takes us back over 150,000 years ago (maybe more), before mankind ever had a foothold on earth. By evolution standards, we were nothing more than another form of Ape-man referred to as Denisovans.  

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Lucy ?

Lucy’s species, Australopithecus afarensis, is approximately 3 million years old and categorize as an earlier form of “genus Homo”. The evolutionary Ape-man ( or in this case, Ape-woman) took on various stages, but each step wasn’t anything miraculous, until a drastic change between 100,000 – 150,0000 years ago.
Like  Prof. Stephen Hawking points out,”For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened…”
Science-fiction Short Stories and Screenplays
During my lifetime, I’ve written numerous screenplays and short stories, but BLACK ANGELS is considered my favorite.  BLACK ANGELS is a science-fiction horror genre asking the age old question, ” Who are we and where did we come from?”   It’s not only a story of desperation, survival and betrayal, the storyline leads you to the very core of our existence.   
I began my journey soul-searching, earnest to understand why we are, who we are today.  It’s not hard to see what’s going on in our world, you begin to wonder,” What makes homo-sapiens such a savage species?”  The bloodshed over religion, money and power is relentless.  Millions have been persecuted, with today’s conflicts becoming increasingly disturbing. Time and time again, it’s a power struggle of simple greed and vanity.  On top of it all, our evolutionary brain isn’t working with all its thruster’s.  Like our beloved Scotty of Star Trek, (James Doohan born in Vancouver, B.C.), would say,” Aye Aye Captain…I’m given her all she’s got…she’s got no more!”  It’s hard to conceive, but even though we may use 100 percent of our brain, it’s extremely strange how most of us are not considered geniuses. 
That’s just doesn’t seem right.  
How come a select few are geniuses?  I mean we are suppose to be at the top of evolutionary chain.  That’s million of years. My God!  Something is totally wrong with this picture.  It’s as if someone placed a “governing  device” in our brain, so we can’t have full access.

Maybe it’s my science-fiction mind taking over… or is it?  

And that’s where I began my journey, finding answers to puzzling questions.  I’m sure Professor Steven Hawking would have an equation, answering the complex origin of mankind.

The New Eden vs Eden – Star Trek

I’m a fan of Star Trek ever since I was a kid. Today, we’re thrilled to be continuing our Star Trek Mission with the new TV Series ‘Star Trek Discovery’. In Season Two, I found similarities with my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ to the “New Eden” Episode 2 #StarTrekDiscovery

OK – Where do I begin: Believe vs Science – the two are my life’s goal & written screenplays, to the age old question,”Who made us ?”

Twenty years ago I began writing my thoughts of how religion controls the masses vs an Intelligent humanoid species who came to earth 100 – 300,000 yrs ago, changing ape-mans DNA. This has followed me ever since I began questioning the roots of man-made religion, when I was 10 years old. It was only when I was 30, where my thoughts appeared on paper.

Fast forward another twenty years later, I have finished writing my screenplay ‘BLACK ANGELS’ :

LOGLINE : Drug addict war hero seeks revenge for brother’s death, risking his crew in mining expedition on planet ALPHA XL-420 for priceless Red Crystal, essential to saving their species from deadly virus.

It’s the beginning…

BLACK ANGELS is my take on an Alien Intelligent Species coming to earth in haste, to save their species from a deadly virus. To use, control & further their DNA; in fact, the Sirian species crossed their DNA with Ape-man.

However, because the Sirian Species altered the evolutionary timeline of Ape-man, human beings today have serious emotional side-effects, such as anger, hate and so on… but that’s another story.

Read my back story.

In my screenplay I answer what happens to our ancestors. For example,”Have they even left or are they still monitoring their DNA creation today ?”

‘BLACK ANGELS’ is only the beginning, as I explore the possibilities, not just from our “Past Ancestors”, but as well as the “Present” and “Future”. With adjoining science-fiction stories, I have explored many avenues, such as Alien Abduction Report – Earth Missions 2013.

Getting back to “New Eden”, Season 2 – Episode 2 on Star Trek Discovery, I thought it was interesting #StarTrekDiscovery writers explored “New Eden” using the “Red Angels”, while my story is related to “Black Angels”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT implying they’re stealing my storyline. It’s just coincidence, simply because we’re all thinking about how religion came about vs the science. As science-fiction writers, we speculate & explore all possibilities.

In Episode 2 ‘New Eden’ I would like to think, is a continuation from my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ in a future setting. It’s goes in correlation with my theory on our founding ancestors, who started the genetic process of mankind.

IF you’ve watched Episode 2, ‘New Eden’ it explores the mysterious ‘Red Angel’ removing a group of humans off earth during WWIII, placing them in a new world, light years from earth, where Captain Pike & crew happens to find them by a beacon. It’s illogical to assume humans had warp capability until “First Contact”*, therefore there must of been some sort of intervention from an intelligent alien race.

As said, in “Black Angels” my story starts in the very beginning of mankind’s existence. An experimental “Eden” took place, as the Sirian Gods altered Ape-man into the Homo-Sapiens we are today. Here’s an introductory video I made.

In conclusion, it’s nice to see Captain Pike again on Star Trek and I certainly love how the writers are going with Star Trek Discovery.

* Star Trek: First Contact plot starts in the 24th century when Captain Jean Luc Picard “disobeys orders and heads for Earth, where a single Borg Cube ship holds its own against a group of Starfleet vessels.” It’s then they continue its pursuit on the Borg only for them to disappear.

“As the sphere disappears, Enterprise discovers Earth has been altered – it is now populated entirely by Borg. Realizing the Borg have used time travel to change the past, Enterprise follows the sphere through the vortex.

Enterprise arrives hundreds of years in its past on April 4, 2063, the day before humanity’s first encounter with alien life after Zefram Cochrane’s historic warp drive flight; the crew realizes the Borg are trying to prevent first contact.”
