The May, 2013, National Geographic Magazine has a cute picture of a blue-eyed baby on the cover. The title reads “This Baby Will Live to Be 120.” Intrigued, I read the article “New Clues to a Long Life” by Stephen S. Hall. I found the article interesting but disappointing. As with most medical “miracles,” their advances toward human longevity are so distant my bones will be dust beyond DNA replication before they’re useful.

      Journalist Scott Travis wrote in the April 9, 2013, Sun Sentinel: “Homicide is far and away the leading cause of death for young black men, more than car accidents, suicide and diseases combined . . .”

So what you’d end up with is a replica of the person with the original person being killed. The moral implications of this are what inspired me to write The Soul Cage series.

Some people have questioned Zeph’s statement in Second Chance that we exist on infinite planes facing an infinite number of circumstances. That if we die in this reality, we live on in another reality. Isn’t this all a bunch of malarkey and wishful thinking?

Quantum physics says no—to a point. Quantum physics has proven that particles can exist in two places at once. Furthermore, nothing exists until it is observed or measured by someone or something. Some scientists believe that what holds for particles also holds for massive objects like worlds or even universes.

One of the questions burning in Jack Bucher’s adolescent mind in Second Chance was if God really exists. Why does God allow the poverty, suffering, and evil to continue that he sees around him? This is a question that has always intrigued me as well. So I was captivated when I caught part of Through the Wormhole hosted by Morgan Freemam on the Science Channel asking some of these same questions.
