CSFF: What do atoms and books have in common?

I just finished watching the movie, The Prestige, a fantastic plot-twisting mind bender with just a touch of sci-fi to make it interesting. Though this great film is about as new to me as Randy Ingermanson, a man I just learned of today, his work already interests me on the same intrinsic and mysterious level.

Anytime someone uses the words “Physicist” and “Novelist” in the same sentence, I’m intrigued. Maybe growing up 5 miles from Cornell’s subterranean atom smasher put wild thoughts in my head; or maybe living 6 miles from the late Carl Sagan did it. Not sure. But I do know I love a good story, and a good twist.

I can not write too much more today as I feel it would be a true faux pas; my ignorance, albeit creative, would belittle the true merit of the man I perceive lies behind this month’s Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour.

If you’d like to beat me to it, feel free to check out his site. I’ll be writing more tomorrow, and hopefully much more informed.

Please make sure to check out any of the following authors. And, for the very brave, read the March 13th post for the Open Casting Call for Vrie below, being shot this coming Saturday, March 24th at 10:00am in Chaumont, NY.

So what do atom and books have in common? You can pick both apart as much a you want, but at their very foundation are elements that no one can explain. They simply must be accepted for what they are, the fundamentals of life itself. To “figure them out,” as it were, would be to ruin the mystery. And that is what we humans thrive upon: the unknown. For if we fully understood God, what need would we have of Him?

Break apart your atoms. Pick apart your books. But you’ll never find the True magic.

Unless it finds you.

  2. Thanks for the link and the great post!

  3. Rebecca & Eve – Thanks for the compliments! Love CSFF!

  4. Good post, Christopher. You’ve really got to check out Randy’s other books, especially Oxygen and The Fifth Man. They’re my favorites after Double Vision. I call him a witty genius. Seems to fit the bill.
