The Science Behind Genesis
And Revised Cover Reveal
If you’re an Earth 8-8-2 Saga fan, you already know the gist of the science behind Genesis, the main character. But today I’d like to go into a bit more detail.
To do this we have to start with the 4 main elements; human, vampire, goddess and superhuman.
However, before I get into that, let me go back and share an excerpt from “Earth 8-8-2: The Genesis Project” just to help you catch up a bit if you’re not familiar.
Tyranny and malice swept through Earth 8-8-2 and people like Dr. Scott—or maybe not exactly like him—were looking for the means of freeing themselves from the brutality. Unbeknownst to their oppressors, several of The Rebellion had embarked on a mission to visit other earths in order to collect DNA. Many of the earths that had been visited had various types of living beings. All with their weaknesses, but a vast amount with breathtaking strengths. Capabilities far beyond that which 8-8-2 Earthlings, and any like them, could ever imagine.
Earth 7-0-1 was the residential abyss of vampires. These beings lived on a dark earth, and fed on animals—beasts that were a hybrid of human and ape, although actual humans did not exist there. Dr. Scott surmised that if they had, they'd never survive. No blood on any earth was as good or as nutritious as human blood.
Earth 2-5-4 was the home to superhumans. Everyone was extraordinary, bestowed with supreme gifts therefore everyone was the same. It was an average day on Earth 2-5-4 when someone used their laser vision, or atomic breath.
Earth 9-9-1 was the dwelling of the Gods. It was Mount Olympus and Asgard all rolled up into one. Yet no one had an appreciation for one another's gifts as they were all the same.
Earth 8-8-2's Rebellion shipped scientists specializing in intragalactic travels to as many alternate earths as they could. The mission was to obtain DNA from all of the earths that were inhabited by supreme beings. As such, DNA was eventually gathered from Earths 7-0-1, 2-5-4 and 9-9-1. Albeit an extremely difficult mission, it was in the end, successful.
Now that you have a little bit of backstory, we can move forward.
Why, you may ask, these 4 strands of DNA specifically?
Today I will give you the answer.
The answer, as you could imagine, is derived from yesterday’s blog post, “All About Earth 8-8-2, The Planet”.
Let’s take a deeper look, shall we?
If you were a human with abundant knowledge who’d been besieged by other humans with extreme knowledge then you would perhaps look for a way to outsmart your fo. At the end it would be the proverbial “battle of the fittest”.
Who could outsmart whom?
Now, given the technology at hand it would be wise to use what is at your disposal, right? Right.
What did Dr. Scott and The Rebellion have at their fingertips? Intragalactic travel.
This job wouldn’t be the easiest to execute, of course. I mean, think about it … regular humans having to gather DNA from the likes of vampires, superhumans and gods …? It’s damn right ludicrous. But, in the end, worth the trouble. Especially if you could use that DNA to create a being that would vanquish the tyranny and free your planet.
In my mind’s eye I imagine that the soldier-slash-chrononauts that went on this mission perhaps came to the conclusion that if they could garner DNA from children and babies, they may have some chance of executing their mission successfully. I envision them going on some sort of top secret, super spy, resurgence mission to break into the homes of the hosts and swab the mouths of the tots. Then, DNA in hand, they go zooming back to Earth 8-8-2 and hand the treasures over to the right parties.
SIDE NOTE: Honestly, what I just wrote above (↑↑↑) is giving me a huge spin-off story idea.
Wait for it y’all … it may just happen. LOL
Anyways, before I interrupted myself so rudely ...
So the question remains, why these 4 strands specifically? Well, the answer is simple …
THEY NEEDED SOMETHING THAT COULD NOT BE DESTROYED!
All right, now that I’ve made you wait long enough it’s time to show you the revised cover to “Earth 8-8-2: The Genesis Project”, the Earth 8-8-2 Saga’s first book.
I wouldn’t do the new book cover justice unless I first shared the old cover. So, here is it:
Could Science Serve as Salvation?
For Dr. Scott, the combined strengths of each life form represent the answer to the onslaught of malice and tyranny plaguing his Earth. When his creation—Genesis—begins developing, the lines between scientist and father become blurred. Soon the time approaches where Genesis is expected to fulfill her purpose. Does she go along willingly, or will her rapid evolution obliterate everyone’s best-laid plans?
Presenting the new cover to “Earth 8-8-2: The Genesis Project”!
Okie dokie, smokie … Hasta la mañana! 😉
