Brilliant Particles

•Ishan Project: 322/43•



(Cont. from DAY 320)  Anali continues, “I told you that both the dark sleep and the awakening had been marked by two storms. The storms I referred to were not the product of rain or thunder. These storms were created by solar flares.”

“What do you mean by ‘solar’?,” I ask.

“Solar flares create geomagnetic storms.” She continues. “During these storms, the earth’s magnetic field is disrupted. During this event, the same high-energy particles that make the Aurora Borealis most brilliant are the same particles that disrupt the magnetic field that dance through our limbs. As Ishan, our bodies are extremely sensitive to this change. We suspect that this was critical to us going into the Dark Sleep. So Koyu figured that this was also critical to us waking up.

  1. Your writing style reminds me of Doris Lessing… in the way it’s science fiction delivered in an almost matter-of-fact, academic style. This makes it obliquely strange. Brian Aldiss’s Report on Probability A also springs to mind.

    1. Thanks a lot Chris. I’m really glad you’ve been able to read the stories along with these daily paintings. Sometimes I wonder if others are simply responding to the art and/or writing. It’s a pleasure to hear your feedback. By the way, I absolutely ❤ scifi reading and shorts! Definitely one of the reasons I started this blog initially.
