On Writing BASE


There is a magical trail on the island of Kauai called the Powerline King Kong trail. Ambitious mountain bikers can make their way from the North Shore to the South Shore, enjoying giant waterfalls, spectacular mountain views, and wild animals and birds. 


One summer, I was biking the Powerline when I encountered an old Monk followed by a beautiful tiger. The Monk, dressed in a red and yellow robe, ran across the trail in front of me. After crossing, he turned and smiled. His perfect sparkling white teeth betrayed his age. The tiger followed close behind and turned to glance at me as well. Long before the theory of a simulated reality was famous, I believed something was out of sync. I would have moments like this encounter with the Monk and the tiger when I felt I was living an illusion.


Perhaps being a computer programmer and familiar with Virtual Reality, the abnormalities piqued my curiosity. I knew it was possible that what we think of as reality could be a computer simulation from somewhere in the future. If we live in a simulated reality, I would like to know about the first Base Reality Civilization. 


The odds against living in a Base Civilization are billions to one. So I set out, in the Novel BASE Standing on the Edge of Reality, to write about the possibilities and how the first civilization might have reached the stars and survived.  


I hope you enjoy this story of adventure, romance, and mystery.
