Charged Comments & Dialog
Book II: Chapter 15 : Sweet Water House
"Before I kill a man, I know all that it implies. I know I'm extinguishing a universe. I know I am depriving a family of a man and a man of his family. I feel the same thing when I see a worshiper." — Emit Archer
Book III: Chapter 40: Judes Are Wild
"... someone noticed a change in me when I got back that made me suddenly coveted. I went dark after watching a dead priest fall away and I guess that was the feature they were waiting to kick in. The only thing missing was something missing and when I lost it, they wanted me." — Ghost Writer
Story Helixes and Unintended Spins
Book II: Chapter 32 : A Velvet Dagger
Emvee remarks about carrying heavy packages to the library often for her father.
Seth's only opportunity to ferry a package to the library is a pivot point and benchmark.
Book I: Chapter 12 : Hacienda Vidal
He pointed to a small and upside-down mark in the upper left corner of the crest. The tiny set of dents and scratches told Rafael that this helmet didn't fall off the head of Cortés. Though he was able to identify exactly where it was forged and by whom based on that mark, he didn't need it to know it wasn't Cortés'.
Despite my years of studying the region's history and the lofty suffixes behind my name, it wasn't until that night that I learned these Morions with this specific design weren't worn by him. They wouldn't be designed for another thirty years.
This benchmark for prophecies was itself a forgery. Still a magnificent find and a pivot point for a People but not a Truth as itself.
Is Truth the object or its associations?
Original Film Treatment  What became the Above Story of US6; a metaphysical study of the holographic relationship between a creator and its creation began as a father/son project Below.
Part Literary Experiment, Part Autobiographical Fiction.
||The Six of Us
|Though wrapped in a metaphysical thriller the books, series, and point of US6 is the need for its six fictional authors to create their epic, yet imaginary worlds in the first place. As reaction to lives in human trafficking networks, these six children build a Paracosm wherein they are sophisticated, mythological heirs to an ancient world of intrigue and esoteric high crimes. Very late in the books, their saga unravels into the fragile realities each has to confront.
