About Me

Writing Sample

Melissa stood behind the podium, addressing the crowd in Los Angeles. She knew her husband was in the audience with their baby daughter, but couldn’t see anything besides the blinding lights and her notes.

“It’s a bit strange, isn’t it, that I’m up here with a physicist and a neurobiologist? And it was very kind of you all to include me in this honor, as the hard scientific work was done mostly by others- I simply provided inspiration. I can’t even claim that the inspiration was a result of effort on my part, because it simply… appeared. I had a dream, a series of recurring dreams, actually- about my being at the end of a tunnel in spacetime, and someone else was on the other end. He could see and hear me, but I could not see him. Information went through the tunnel in one direction- mostly. Why did any information get back to me? How did my brain pick it up? I had other dreams where the events could only be explained by movement of information or even objects through time, and I wondered- could movement of information be accomplished via wormholes in spacetime? Was I also witnessing the effects of neurological quantum entanglement?”
