  • of the amazing life that surrounds us and is within us I d also like to give some glimpses into controversial areas of science and mention some of the philosophy behind it My intention is to give some of the wow and wonder of science Each of us begins our journey as a single cell fused from two half cells That single animal then starts cloning itself Specialisation of most of those cells produces an incredible proliferation of different types that make up nerves muscles skin even the free moving amoeba like leukocytes All these tiny animals cooperate to act as one gigantic organism We truly are enormous walking colonies of billions of animals Air is held down to our planet by gravity and is more dense at lower altitudes than higher ones Here is a simple intuitive demonstration that air has weight We are so used to feeling heat that it seems to us something tangible instead of the actions of things If we slow the movement that is heat to a standstill we would reach a temperature of absolute zero or 0 Kelvin 273 15 C or 459 67 F Brrrr Nobody has managed to cool anything to

    it for me and for people who are like me I get a big kick out of ideas and I think the whole standard plot structure that everybody uses is tired and worn intro build up climax resolution Reality doesn t follow plotting rules Neither does this story First draft begun NaNoWriMo 2013 and completed in Camp NaNoWriMo during April 2014 Yet to be properly revised and probably full of errors and bits that don t work If you give me feedback on either of my blogs LiveJournal or DreamWidth I d be very grateful flying a novel 384 kB 60 586 words 113 pages You know those wonderful flying dreams you sometimes have NOTE This story starts out sounding like fantasy but it isn t Believe me it is hard SF I m also a little worried that the sweetness of the beginning might turn some readers away or disappoint some others when it becomes less so later Nevertheless this is an optimistic upbeat story no sex or horror or gratuitous violence Written during 2011 2012 2013 Prescription my 2010 NaNoWriMo novel 285kB 50 400 words 85 pages When we make an Artificial Intelligence that is smarter than us what will it really be like A brilliant scientist heads a small team of programmers building an artificial intelligence AI This story primarily considers how AIs could be misused for ill or used for good and how they might provide the solutions to many of our problems It also illustrates concerns at how rights can be so easily denied those who deserve them I designed this to be quite a bit different from normal stories It has a number of parts and many of the chapters read more like short stories than part of a long piece but that s how I wanted it to be I wanted an overarching story made up of smaller ones Maybe it worked maybe it didn t I think the standard way of telling stories is becoming too formulaic Intro build up climax resolution It has become a ritual I finished this the first draft in the month Yay Now the long slow neverending process of revision Seeking Reason Not finished My 2009 NaNoWriMo novel We live in an amazingly privileged time but take it so much for granted What if this is as good as it gets Most of us don t understand how the decisions we make today have the potential to utterly unhinge our future We think we understand but truly we don t Unfinished I hope to complete it eventually Critically Damaged Not finished My 2008 NaNoWriMo novel It can take years to create an intricate masterwork When it is done what is its value And who can say Unfinished I hope to complete it eventually Selena City my 2007 NaNoWriMo novel 248kB 43 725 words 75 pages Adele works in security and is in love with Brenda Unfortunately circumstances have separated them A leading AI expert has been abducted

  • Some of Miriam's stories
    kind of snapshot from the far future Hmmm Looks like I got a little something written during November after all The Party a short story 30kB 2 424 words 4 pages This is a bit of an odd story I ve marked it as science fiction but it is only barely so It has a bit of a dreamlike quality I know It began life as a dream that I woke from and decided to write down I wrote it as an entry in a short story competition The competition imposed strict limits on the word length for entries so this forced the story to be considerably shorter than I would have liked Maybe one day I ll extend it the way I d have preferred This should have been put up here back in April 2012 but I keep being distracted by other things Closed Curve 8kB 1 298 words 2 pages I woke from a nap with the rapidly fading fragment of a dream which hinged on a strange idea By the time I had the computer running and had begun frantically typing the dream had mostly evaporated but I d managed to weave an odd tale around the bit that remained I know it is nothing like the dream The dream was pleasant I can t blame the dream for this horrid story But somehow it feels like it didn t really come from me either it s like it invented itself Out at Night 1kB 919 words 2 pages This was originally written as an exercise for the writers group I was attending at the time The main character is supposed to be my niece Sophie in the future Cuckoo 12kB 1 948 words 4 pages I wrote this fairly recently after a nightmare The nightmare was quite different to this story and had an altogether darker more disturbing plot I might write that down some day too Once Bitten 9kB 1 466 words 3 pages This unpleasant little tale occurred to me out of the blue while I was over in New Zealand for Xmas 2005 I thought I had put it up here some time back but realised today more than a year later that I d forgotten Remedied Anty sense 11kB 1 665 words 4 pages I started this story a while ago but got stuck part way through I knew how it had to end and I knew the general theme of the story but I was caught up on a proof which I felt was needed in the story In the end I realised I didn t need it after all It doesn t depend upon it so I implied it I m still not entirely sure it was the right thing to do One day I might fix that and give it the proof it wants Guardian Angel 12kB 1 970 words 4 pages This was an exercise for the writers group I attended in Kenilworth the smartly named Writers
