TITLE: Master of Science Fiction?
By Patricia Williams


Master of Science Fiction?

And all was darkness, no sounds, no sight, just humors and vapors swirling about madly, like dancing shadows without form or feeling. No touch, not hot nor cold, just a muggy sensation
as though hairs of existence stood straight up to touch the invisible offenders of the moving nothingness that filled the external void.

Then, out of the nowhere darkness came flashes of fire with stabbing, jabbing forces that flashed through the atmosphere to nullify the black nothingness.

Voi-la, there it is, volatile ripples of vapor forming the unseen shapes woven together to produce heat and noise. The silence is broken by volitional sounds of the will, uttering commands with a power that exceeds anything one can comprehend.

A mass, a glob, a motionless clump of formed particles, oblivious to the Being that has come down to hover over the never before object of interest. The Being explodes into existence the announcement of perfection. This unknown Being, never before seen, bends over this lifeless mass and brings the cranial mass to its mouth. Placing its mouth over its nostrils it blows a breath into the mass that causes the atmospheric gasses to expand the chest cavity of the lifeless form. Out of darkness comes light. The motionless clump of clay is provided vision through the opening of the eye gate that opens into the inward makeup of the mass. Life fills the mass, the mass becomes a part of the Being that is found hovering over it. From a clump of clay made from nothing less than dirt, muscles, tissue, and creation of hardened form provides a structure that evolves into an object the Being called Man.

Our world holds individuals that deny the existence of the Being that brought about something out of nothing. There are minds that put the above in the realm of the twilight zone, something beyond even their wildest imagination. There has always been the individual that couldn’t see beyond the tangible. The possibility of men flying, landing on the moon were just as foreign and impossible to them as the existence of the Being that breathed the breath of life into a lifeless mass of clay. But, we know men fly to destinations that were once beyond what the normal mind could conceive. There’s no denying the many wonders of the heavens beyond. Instruments beam back visual proof that now offer the human race the visual proof of many more unknowns to discover. There still resides in the world those that would call this being the Master of Science fiction. Science fiction? Just as men flying to the moon proved not to be science fiction neither will the Creator of mankind prove to be only a science fiction character

You raise great points here. I especially liked the second paragraph/line about the jabbing forces etc...Very strong line.

Hmmm, this is pretty interesting. I was expecting something a little different, but this was pretty good. The fourth paragraph is my favorite. ^_^

Better late than never... but I was caught by the title when I came by to visit your profile.

This is a really cool take on the science fiction topic and very well written.
