I have decided to write a short book. Everything I wrote before this was an attempt at humor. This work takes a while to wade through. I warn you it is explicit at first and unedited. Please, stick... More > with me in this journey. At the end of reading this you will be richly rewarded. This book is an attempt to give you an idea to where we are heading and where we have been. This book is not strictly political. It is a human experience. The chance to see beyond this dimension and into another one; this is why writers write. We write to leave this dimension and enter another one. We are the sculptors of the alternate universe. We help bridge the gap from "reality" to another dimension through words. Everything we see, feel and smell is perceptive in nature. We are perceptive creatures…. Thank you, Andrew S. Coon< Less
