I know next to nothing about sci fi and I find it stunning where you do you get your concepts and images from. Amazing. I believe everything there is in our minds had to come from somewhere in the life , from the reality (whatever that is) where we have perceived and ..harvested it. So Aura, where have you been hanging out lately? ☺
You sounded so convincing in the beginning, you’ve got me thinking I must have missed some history classes at school not to know anything about Dunbar!
