The ELE Series—An Overview

The research I'm doing for a writing project involves the scope and nature of extinction level events (also called E.L.E.'s). The truth of it is that much of my reading is simply too amazing not to share. The universe is such a crazy and dangerous place which can freak you out if you're the right brand of paranoid. You may get a little stressed out reading some of this stuff, but there is a huge glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel... if you can stay the path.

There's too much to put it all in one place, so I'm going to break it up into a few easily digestible chunks:

  • MEASURING OUR FUTUREUsing the Kardashev Scale to get a glimpse into our far off future

  • ELE's: OUR MONSTERS IN THE CLOSETAn unflinching catalogue of adult nightmares (in two parts)

  • WITHIN OUR LIFETIMESurprising predictions on our swift evolution

Tomorrow we begin by orienting ourselves in time and space by Measuring Our Future.

Cool! Have you been reading Jerry Pournelle?

Lucifer's Hammer was one of those formative novels for me...
