What makes us so formidable as a species is the ability of an individual to take the collective knowledge and experience of 100,000 years and apply it to the issue at hand often without the direct knowledge of how to personally construct the tool at hand. My first glimpse of the profound awe that would enrapture me for the rest of my life was from peering into the vast depths of the imaginations of the great science fiction writers. At first it was the action that caught my attention but as my understanding grew it was the concepts of science and the vastness and wonders of the Universe that took me to “Infinity and beyond”. The storytellers have always been the keepers of the flame. Some stories are written in the stars. Imagine!
