Wrapping up a new Mobile App
There is a trail on the island of Kauai called the Powerline King Kong trail. An ambitious mountain biker can make his or her way from the North Shore to the town of Kapaa, passing waterfalls and spectacular mountain sights.
Alone one summer, I was biking the Powerline when I encountered an old Monk followed by a beautiful tiger. The Monk, dressed in a red or yellow robe, ran across the trail in front of me. After crossing, he turned and smiled. His teeth were perfect and white. The tiger followed close behind and turned to glance at me as well.
Long before the theory of a simulated reality was popular, I believed that something was not right. 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 had some impact on my thinking. I knew it was possible that what we think of as reality could be a computer simulation from somewhere in the future.
If we are living 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 to write about all the possibilities and how the first civilization might have reached the stars and survived.
Ten years later, I decided to write a sequel. I soon realized that I needed to go back and edit Rainhut and rename it to Base before I could write a series, the Base series. I've finished editing and published Base, subtitled Standing on the Edge of Reality. I've written the ending and the beginning of the new novel, Base the Dawning. Now I'm filling in the middle to finish the book. I love the ending and cannot wait to share it.
I hope you enjoy these sci-fi adventures.
