You are allowed to enter up to two photos each. ( this will make it more difficult for +Charles Strebor to judge :) ) Event dates. *When: Today (22 of July 13)* *End:    Monday 5th of August.* Rules.

Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0088G+
Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych219,689It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area).Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show.They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good.Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week.As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00167G+
Lady Fran W6,887Can you make an ordinary running kitchen tap look fab?This challenge came about following a conversation in a thread with +Megan Huddle (thanks for the inspiration babe!). Whilst on a recent trip to New Zealand, I got my very first 'soft milky water' shot of a stream, and purely by luck. I had no ND filter, no tripod, just good light and a little bridge to lean the camera on. See here - http://goo.gl/Vpz58I'm now obsessed with trying out this kind of photography wherever I go. I'm searching for streams, waterfalls, beaches, you name it. +Megan Huddle suggested I could make anything look good (uber flattered). .. and so the challenge came about. A camera, an idea, and a plain old running tap in the kitchen sink.    Can you make it look fab?   I think you can. Work your magic. Show us what you’ve got.Any camera, and setting, any processing.It’s all open to your imagination and creativity.Sooooo, why not give it a go?  There's no prizes I'm afraid. No rewards. (Unless some super generous sponsor out there wants to throw something in as incentive.) Otherwise, it's all about the glowing recognition, compliments and praise from your G+ peers. Due date: 11:30pm, Friday 8 December Saturday 9 December -----------------------------------------------------------PS PUBLIC EVENT! - Apparently one can't invite large numbers of guests to an event (ie big circles), soooo, please feel free to forward this around and get people involved. =)Photo challenge - A simple tap2012-12-08 13:30:0072G+
Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych219,689On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time.For more information, including specific timezones and best countries to view from see NASA's website here:http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2012/TSE2012.html#sciencesunday    #solareclipse   #eclipse   #NASA   +ScienceSunday Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00133G+

Steve Johnson33,921... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion.Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments. Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to:CompositionThe horizon a third from top or bottomLeft/right mirror symmetry is to be avoidedThe odd number ruleRule of thirdsTechnicalUse of on camera or undiffused flashWideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past)EditingOversharpeningOver-saturating(Just about over-anything really). OtherShooting down at kids, pets or flowers.These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments.One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034G+

My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called Sky: http://goo.gl/phGuRForget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people. It is the most challenging palette of light there is. Let's see 'em!You have a full day and a half! Please spread the word too.Sky!2012-09-02 00:00:0023G+

Gerard Blacklock23,700Gerry's Australian Photographers Circle Version 3Hey Aussie togs, this is a pretty big update to this circle from the last one, this time I have been more selective in the fact that inactive glus members get booted, the circle was over 600 and as such I needed to comply with 'the less than 500 requirement' hence culling was needed.Note, this is the only circle I share since I really have a interest in local content.Feel free to reshare as you see fit, the main purpose is to facilitate more engagement between local aussie togs.Please feel free to comment and let me know if you know anyone (or if you are indeed one) who is a quality, active and interesting Australian based photographer.Two great communities/themes to get involved with if you like Australia content is #photomaniaustralia +Photo Mania Australia and Australian Landscape Photography https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/1060822645285719679572014-08-13 02:56:2844712320CC G+

Gailen Mapes66,394Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-29 10:16:1119910511CC G+

Gailen Mapes65,590Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-06-29 10:00:362007110CC G+

Terrance and That Rock

A perfect couple, I reckon.  Derek has now completed his first full week of being the Townie.

For dinner, I'm having (kanga)roo bolognese on hokkien noodles with stir-fried Kangkung and garlic toast.  To be followed with pears poached with red wine, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom.  And ice cream - vanilla.  Two scoops.

.Terrance on Tour: Break Time

There's no fence blocking Terrance's view today: just the whispy Casuarina pines.  In a few months, when the rains begin again, the very brown ground will be very green again.

Tis beautiful cycles for my cycle to observe on his tour.

Dervish Multipliciousness

A whole bunch of phaser, a spot of fading in, a touch of wah wah and a couple of spots of fading out.

/me found that bit of paper - it wasn't under the sofa nor was it the last place I looked (I always keep looking after finding things - that way it's not ever found in the last place I looked) - instead, it was in one of the corners were the Ganzou's bits of plastic are also hiding

I can relax now. 

G'night.

Violence Good, Love Bad

We could at least admire the MPAA’s honesty if it admitted that Love is Strange has been guilty of “excessive normalising of a loving homosexual relationship with no punishment or prolonged unhappiness for either party”. Mainstream cinema has tended to like its gay characters either tormented (Brokeback Mountain), comical (The Birdcage), dead (Milk) or dying (Philadelphia).

The couple in Love is Strange fall into none of those categories.

I reckon it will - and I reckon reading +Paul Pavlinovich's post is a good way for others to think about  what your shoot and how you shoot it.

I'm looking forward to this Sunday's 36.

The chores that needed completing over the weekend have been completed.

The food that needed preparing for the work lunches have been prepared and packed in containers for carting to the working place.

The reading that needed reading - well - there's always more of that.

Best I get to it - after I re-watch the Doctor, of course.

May your day be.

Where's Tassie?

Terrance managed to get himself a bucket of maintenance stuff today: I've spent much of the afternoon going through it with him and now he wants me to make sure I pay attention to all the words in his manual.

Pushy bike, that Terrance.

And now... and now... it's time for another really early night: last night's was because I was exhausted - tonight's is such that I can be sure to listen to the alarm when it goes off in the morning such that I can be awake and caffeinated in time for the Doctor.

Catch you then, no doubt.

That Rock: Another Perspective

Thursday's images of Terrance with That Rock gave an impression that Terrance was rather impressive in size next to the rock.  This image of Terrance shows him at the sea end of the rock - he doesn't look so big now.

Terrance and That Rock

A perfect couple, I reckon.  Derek has now completed his first full week of being the Townie.

For dinner, I'm having (kanga)roo bolognese on hokkien noodles with stir-fried Kangkung and garlic toast.  To be followed with pears poached with red wine, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom.  And ice cream - vanilla.  Two scoops.

The #Geeplus  has been so kind as to #AutoAwesome  this equirectangular into a #photosphere - than you.  I now need to get cables and stuff so as to securely attach the tripod to Terrance's basket such that I can make another version of this (much closer to That Rock, I reckon) without the stitching issues of this first attempt.

Join in the journey of finding out, rather than knowing
Science is fascinating. It is incredible. It really is.

Science Posts : are often about new discoveries or about science and related technology. I post a lot within this area. I have often found that while my posts have engagement, it gets hard to explain why the commenter has to stick to the science.

Why can't I talk about my experience : Of course you can, but one has to preface it by saying it is my experience, or its not something backed by research. And be ready to be called on it. Very often commenters will continue to talk about their experiences as if that 'proves' something. Experiences do not make science. It is an experience. What you observe may not be what another person observes. Or it may not be repeatable. (See the Scientific method here http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/scientific_method )

How to make your point scientifically : Science posts may be wrong. That is the nature of science. Sometimes the science may be based on hypothesis which may have counterpoints, but these are continuously tested and refined. Theories are based on observations, so they have a body of work behind them. These are not 'guesses.' Be respectful to the original poster, since often science posts have a lot of work and research which has gone into it. Make your point with research from reputable sites and link back to the research. If you are not sure about it's veracity, ask an expert (There are many on Google Plus).

Does a study make it true : This one is fraught with issues. Often studies may not have a large enough sample size. Or the conclusions one may draw from a study may not be correct. Most scientists are extremely wary of making assertions, even in their own field. They know that there are a lot of variables which need to be taken into account. Science begins with skepticism. Every study needs to be evaluated.

Making your point : Oftentimes, you can make your point with just one comment on a post. Sometimes you make need to make a followup comment. Don't keep repeating your point, making the same assertion again and again. Talking over people does not make you right. It only makes them lose respect for what you are trying to say. Calling someone names is the lowest form of engagement. Do not let it sink to that level.

'Converting' someone : Don't comment to 'convert' someone to your point of view. Science is not about who talks louder or says it more often or cites more studies. Its about relevance, facts, study and repetition. (See my earlier post here How to do science : https://plus.google.com/110884604033336753419/posts/VJrxUt6gUmi )

Science doesn't play favorites : Mentioning Einstein does not make you right. Any scientist would tell you that there are things they do not know. The journey in science is the finding out. One has to live with things which are still not known, and scientists are the best at this way of being.

Join in the journey of finding out, rather than knowing : Science is fascinating. It is incredible. It really is. There is so much I learn just by reading and writing (researching) about how things work, its really something everyone should indulge in. It's brain food. Knowing something is the end of asking. Revel in the journey, not the end.

Edible

This, perhaps, is my favourite thus far of the images from the hoop play this past weekend.  I'm not sure anymore if the title refers to being eaten by the lights or wanting to eat the jellies.

Dinner was delicious, dessert was fantabulous and the time has now come for reading and sleeping.

May your day be.

Experts, Broken Logic & Galileo

“Don’t feed the trolls” is sound advice, but I’ve ignored it on occasion – including on The Conversation and Twitter – and I’ve been rewarded. Not that I’ve changed the minds of any trolls, nor have I expected to.

But I have received an education in the tactics many trolls use. These tactics are common not just to trolls but to bloggers, journalists and politicians who attack science, from climate to cancer research.

The Ride Home

I get to experience beauty of this particular variety (ie woodlands) for about 1/3 of my 5.5 km commute to work.  The blackened areas to the the left and right? This area was burning about 3 weeks back: shan't be much time at all before it's green again.

Filing this in the Terrance the Townie album - it's obviously not the bike but one of many-to-come images shot whilst riding the critter.

Now that I'm home, I get more time than usual this evening online.  The lads are having a sleepover and they are cooking dinner for me.  Spag bol with cheese and crunchy bread.  I'm glad we've been cooking since they were wee lads: it's not a job - it's cooking - it's fun.

This is worth a read. 

And I don't want any TL:DR kinda stuff going on - this is good.  Real good.

#SciFi  

It has been many moons since I have been here. I see new faces/new friends Beryl Reid, +Irina Tcherednichenko, Walid Younes, Sarah Gallardo , Marico Gualtieri and old friends like +Randy W. Weeks, +Deborah Teramis Christian, D Luria, +Neil McAlister. I wrote a post with my dear friend, +Vicky Gallardo , of the clan, Sjogren-Gallardo. Here it is in its entirety. Enjoy. LOL.
 
 
Greetings Sentient Being,
 
I am your friendly holographic travel assistant and I see that you have chosen to visit the 3rd planet, of the solar system, in the Milky Way. Please note that Earth has been rated a "four" out of a possible ten, on the Planetary Civilization Level Schemata. As such, all sentient beings should beware of the following travel advisories:
 
1. Set your camouflage to blonde hair, blue eyes, male gender, 6ft tall, not to exceed 225 pounds (height and weight should always be proportionate if you choose another height) . Earthers are drawn to and impressed by what is considered "Western" physical beauty. Although the race has a myriad of skin colors, "white" seems to be the dominate and "white people" seem to be born with entitlements. They are not really white, the color is closer to pale pink or beige. Beings of darker hue, are viewed with suspicion and as inferior. Females are subject to a second class level (overtly or covertly) irregardless of skin color. Neuters are unknown. Please remember to choose a gender. No switching genders, while on the planet either!
 
2. Be sure to visit your local Health & Welfare Division - Earth medicine is unevenly applied. One must have "health insurance" or be very wealthy. The H&W will provide you with a basic health kit, that will include, a holographic quantum self-surgery suite, a diagnoser and a synthesizer (to create any medicine your specific species requires). If you forgo the health kit, we will be happy to provide you with suitable Earth currency. At favorable rates.
 
3. Carry food supplements. Earth food is endemic with dangerous additives, diseases and while most Galactic species can tolerate their foods and the water, it is not recommended. However, if you choose to immerse yourself in the whole human culture, we encourage one to obtain a full body purge upon return to your home base. Both Mentally AND Physically.
 
4. Do not discuss religion. What is religion? The Xeno Department is still reviewing 11000 earth years of their history. We are unsure how Earthers differentiate between a God, god, gods, Santa Clause, tooth fairies, demons, the devil, saints, and other figures mentioned in their writings. It is HIGHLY dangerous to discuss the above with Earthers. They have conducted centuries of wars, disputing these figures and beliefs.
 
5. Climate - The air is tainted and carcinogenic. Earth is undergoing climatic change due to the pollution. Several species have died-out and others are in danger of dying out. Man will be on the extinct list, in about a galactic day. Set your time pieces accordingly. Water also has dangerous pollutants. Please adjust your bio suits accordingly.
 
In the advent of an unanticipated EE (Extinction Event) i.e. asteroid strike, nuclear war - and yes, the fools natives still conduct war, you will be notified via your QED (Quantum Electronic Device)
 
Have a Great Trip!
 
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My Dear Vicky -
 
I received your request for a refund but...ummmm, unfortunately, due to the impending Earth EE, we are unable to refund CASH but are willing to CREDIT your account towards another trip. Perhaps Serpens Caput? It is a lovely ring galaxy....
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
To: Friendly Holographic Travel Assistant
 
Yes, dear HLA, as long as Serpens Caputa ranks at least an eight on the PCLS (Planetary Civilization Level Schemata) and isn't frequented by those backward and barbaric earthlings (long overdue for an EE, IMO).
 
Will you be here when I get back? I sense in you a deep intellect and sharp wit that is rare in the universe. I look forward to many more conversations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My Dear Sentient Being Vicky, Your font is lovely and graceful, if I dare say, you are.  
 
Unfortunately, Earth is indeed over-due to an EE. Many of the natives believe that they are favored by their God, god, or gods and that EE only affected only dinosaurs (an Earth species that suffered an EE). The Xeno Department remains bewildered by this culture..

And yes, I will be here when you return. One can tell that you are clearly a being of grace and discernment. and I am enjoying our interactions. Do you ever "do" virtual?
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 *Postscript*
 
To: Vicky Gallardo -
 
My Dear Sentient Being,  my Esteemed Vicky,

I neglected to tell you that Sepens Caputa ranks very highly, very highly indeed. They are a "9" on the  (Planetary Civilization Level Schemata). Sepens Caputa ranks very highly, very highly indeed.

In fact, I believe that I can offer you a transportation vehicle, at no cost, as you site-see at any location of your choice. In addition, Sepens Caputa offers fine dining, great entertainment and as you probably know, they have the muli-verse's oldest and largest library attached to the Sepens Caputa University. I could tell you some tales about me and the University President back in my heyday when I "went" corporeal for awhile...um...perhaps at another PRIVATE time....ahem.

Please feel free to share our program with friends and family.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
Dear Holographic Travel Assistant (may I call you Holly?),
 
This is Vicky, and I am back from my travels. Unfortunately, dear Holly, I did not heed your wise advice to change my destination to Sapiens Caputa. Curiosity got the best of me and I traveled to Earth instead. Although you gave a clear travel advisory, I found things on Earth even direr than you describe.
 
I disguised myself, as advised, as the lighter-skinned species. However I was not careful about the gender, and ended up camouflaged as a middle-aged female and was subjected to second-class status, much to my distress. I also had a hard time with the weight/height proportion, and failed to fit the earth standards of physical beauty; a flawless standard as displayed by their media that none of the actual homo sapient sapiens meet. Indeed; most of the females of the species are absorbed with their physical appearance, and indulge in ritual starvation and mutilation of their bodies (shudder) to try to fit these impossible ideals. I will spare you the graphic details.
 
The medical system is even worse than you described, dear Holly. Even those privileged to have health insurance find themselves in plans that restrict the amount and types of treatments they are allowed to receive; those most severely ill often are denied medical procedures that can save or prolong their lives. And those without insurance simply die as they cannot afford to pauper their families with the cost of treatment. What is more shocking is how their elderly are treated. Most nearing the ends of their lives are sent to sad and lonely exiles once they become infirmed so as to not burden their families with their care; a truly heart-breaking and barbaric ritual.
 
And the food; where do I begin? Although there is substantial healthy sustenance on Earth, the poorer population eats mostly processed foodstuffs full of additives, yes, but also higher in fat and sugar as it is cheaper to eat this “junk” food than healthier alternatives. But that isn’t the worst of the food situation; in some of the poorer countries (their euphemism is “third world), entire peoples lack safe water to drink, and many starve to death, especially the very young.
 
Oh, and you are so right about the religions, Holly. Some of these highly-religious and foolish humans castigate entire segments of their own society; I believe they are called “gay” in the human vernacular. Wars decimate the economies of the richest societies and the so-called “Israeli-Palestinian” conflict has been ongoing since early in the 20th century. In fact, these humans are so backward they even refuse to acknowledge the wisdom and learning of the most brilliant minds of the scientific community. For decades scientists have been warning of the dire effects of carbon emissions that are now widely believed to be having direct impacts on climate.
 
Indeed, Holly, all of your warnings are true and how I wish that I had listened. Crime, racism, homelessness, violence mental illness, drug addiction, poverty and ignorance are rampant in human society and have never been adequately addressed despite the resources of the wealthiest 1%. I hope that the Xeno Department comes up with answers to help alleviate these problems. Yet, despite all of their faults, dear Holly, I find many of the humans to be intelligent, compassionate, and worthy of saving from the EE, and I find the planet itself to have areas of breathtaking beauty. Let me know what you advise on this matter and I will do what I can to help.
 
As always, dear Holly, I find your wisdom and advice invaluable. I look forward to more of our discussions.
 
Vicky
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My dear, dear Vicky. I am distressed! Deeply distressed over your visit to Earth. My quantum circuitry had to be reset after we received awful notifications from you and other visitors to Earth. I do hope that you availed yourself to the physical and mental purge, as advised in the travel advisory. If not, we would be happy to provide you with one at no cost. At any location, of your choosing!
 
After discussion with higher-ups, we have decided to quarantine Earth. All travel to that planet has been suspended and credits returned to any galactic visitors who have visited THAT planet. Additionally, we are offering a free month stay at ANY planet, in ANY universe at NO CHARGE. With a pass to any attractions, as well as a vehicle, to gad-about.
 
There are other planets in that solar system, where the planetary species have been very, very welcoming to visitors. Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn, have lovely, colorful skies and the various species love to have long philosophical debates with sentients. And their progeny is just delightful, the elders respected and revered. They have managed to keep a low profile, in an attempt to avoid socializing with Earthers. In fact, Earthers believe that they are their gods chosen people and disbelieve that the universe has other intelligent life, so it is not too difficult for these sentients to avoid notice.
 
I had to research your reference to "gay" and was FLOORED to read that Earthers discriminate against these sentients. FLOORED! Are Earthers not aware that sexual orientation is hard-wired in their DNA and that if a sentient wishes to change their orientation, they must under-go delicate neurological surgery. Surgery that Earthers are not technologically equipped to perform? Anyway, why oh why are Earthers concerned with what consenting sentients do? Is this discrimination related their god myths? (makes note to request this information from the Xeno Department)
 
During you visit, did you happen to observe how Earthers treat dolphins, squids and whales? The Xeno department has received reports that Earther regard these sentients as FOOD. Just the thought of a species eating another intelligent species makes me extremely nauseous...and fills me with outrage!
 
My dear Vicky, unfortunately, the Xeno Department has a policy of non-interference. Of course you are aware that that meetings with beings of superior technology, invariably results in the non-technological species being subsumed? Although, it is my opinion that Earth could do with a little subsuming. They are simply barbaric. Barbaric, I say. However, my dear esteemed Vicky, we could present a plan to the Xeno Department, and have them make an exception, in regards with assistance?. Perhaps, we can manage to save them from themselves (and the other sentients - the whales, dolphins and squids)...I am not sure that I agree with your assessment that the homo sapient sapiens are worthy of saving but my being is filled with pity for those other sentients. You have to concede that humans are not doing a good job of sharing the planet with the dolphins, whales and squids. Or maintaining the planet either.
 
As always, my dear esteemed one, I look forward to communication from you. May I contact you on your QED (Quantum Electronic Device)?
 
My Deepest Regards,
 
Holly (Holographic Travel Assistant - Ac*Th*Pa*Np*Pu

Dearest Holly,
 
I am most distressed to hear about the quarantine of Earth. In fact, that is what I wanted to speak to you about. I was rereading my travel agreement and noted a trivial item on page 1765, section 31 XD § 532. “Under no circumstances shall any life forms from Earth be taken off planet.” I hate to bring this to your attention in light of your recent quantum circuitry reset, but what are the penalties for violation of this regulation?
 
I am sure you will find this quite humorous, but there is a remote possibility that a paltry number of homo sapient sapiens, and other sentients such whales, squids, and dolphins stowed away on our returning craft. And the fleet we sent back after we returned. This likely has nothing to do with the impending EE, and I am sure we will all have a good laugh about this with the Xeno Department.
 
The connection on my QED is highly temperamental suddenly, and I may be out of range for a few days. But I will be keeping in touch. As always, my dearest Holly, I look forward to our many fascinating discussions.
 
Vicky (location in flux)

My dear, esteemed Vicky, did you say that some of the barbaric humans stowed away on your ship? And what fleet? (gulps)
 
I have no problem with the whales, dolphins and squids (and their cousins the octopi) stowing away but are you sure that you want the verminous humans littering the universe with their archaic beliefs and hatreds against other sentients? We do enforce stringent immigration...on the other appendage, regarding the particular section you have quoted, please be advised that on the next page (in very small quantum print) the Xeno Department allows exceptions to endangered sentients. So my dear, esteemed Vicky, you have nothing to worry about. But did you say "fleet"? (shakes her holographic cerebrum
 
As always,
 
Holly
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My dearest Holly,
 
I am so relieved to hear about the exception on page 1766. Having long followed your illustrious career, I was worried that my little indiscretion may have placed our relationship in jeopardy; a relationship I hold in great esteem. In fact, having remembered that you were the visionary force in the Xeno Department behind the development of the Intergalactic Refuge Center on Ellis in the Virgo Super cluster, I immediately directed the fleet (yes, fleet) to proceed straight there after dropping off the whales, dolphins, squids, and octopi at a lovely aquatic world in the care of a gentle and fun-loving (and vegetarian) sentient population that will cherish and protect them. The humans, now on Ellis, are likely just coming out of stasis as we speak.
 
I know that you have likely received the human’s cerebral scans and will be going over them soon, but I’d like to give you some insight into this population based on my observations. The humans that we rescued were not the wealthiest 1%, nor the most attractive (in their warped sense of the word), nor those religious fanatics that we have had many philosophical conversations about. Instead, we rescued a highly diverse (although they all look alike to my triocular orbitals) group of humans; all skin colors, ages, genders, sexual orientations, capabilities, and sizes.
 
In fact, this group of ragtag humans was shunned; generally regarded as misfits by their own species, hence the added impetus to rescue them. And, Holly, they portray such a unique and puzzling range of traits. Individually they can be unpredictable, brilliant. courageous, volatile, rebellious, imaginative, reckless, compassionate, and creative.
 
And my dear Holly, a final caution before I leave the humans in your capable appendages. The fleet crew has reported observing many strange phenomena on the flight to Ellis; strange lights and hallucinations, the disappearance and reappearance of personal objects, and the malfunctioning of some of the monitoring equipment. The fleet’s medical officer speculates that stasis may have accelerated the evolution and psychic capabilities of the humans. He advises close observation of them on Ellis while a suitable planet is being sought for permanent colonization.
 
Finally, Holly, I would greatly appreciate if you would keep me apprised of your observations of the human refuges and any changes in their status. I have grown quite fond of this group despite their odd odor and lack of a prehensile tail.
 
Fond Regards,
Vicky

My Dear Esteemed Vicky Gallardo (such an unusual name but quite enchanting)
 
Please forgive my delay in responding to your previous communiqué but I have been busy helping to resettle the sentients who stowed away on your fleet.
 
I have spent a considerable amount of time socializing with the humans, dolphins, whales and by the way, did you realize that several elephant herds also had left THAT planet. These beings are simply delightful! Delightful. The elephants are very protective of their young and elderly. The matriarchs also informed me of their mourning rituals which were touching and beautiful. I also spent time with the dolphins and whales and I was treated to a musical event. As you are most likely aware, the natives of Cluster are known through-out the universes for their lyrical sonatas and haunting arias. When paired with whale-song, many sentients in the audience became hypnotized by the music. A good time was had by all. In fact, there have been requests pouring in to Elli-s, for events to be scheduled throughout the area. The peoples of the Cluster are grateful for your timely rescue and delighted that you dropped the sentients in the Cluster. Because of the overwhelming welcome, all of the Earth sentients have decided to settle in the there.
 
I have indeed received the human’s cerebral scans. We have treated many of the humans, for strange growths that would have resulted in their untimely deaths. In fact, we have arranged medical exams to cure the Earth sentients of many debilitating illnesses and purged their systems of the pollutants that mutated their cells. Regarding the acceleration of the Earth sentients mental capacities, they have indeed been changed. It seems that Humans were only utilizing 15% percent of their brain and that stasis has unlocked (or unblocked) the other 85%. The Xeno Department has undertaken a special course of education for the Humans, where they will be taught Galactic law. This educational program, will of course, include teaching Humans how to manage their new-found mentation and the resultant skills.
 
As always, your observation that these stow-away humans were unique was spot on. Spot on, I say! My conversations with the human have been provocative indeed. They are abysmally grateful to you, for their rescue and have erected a sculpture in your honor. They have titled the piece, “Vicky’s Veritas”.
 
Many of the humans have shared with the Xeno Department, their trials and tribulations. There were a few “Palestinians” in the group and they informed us that they had been living in refugee camps for decades, after their homes and lands were occupied by the ‘Israelis”. The Israelis in the group, acknowledged that this was true and in fact were protesters against this treatment. And the Human females told us horror story after horror story, about their treatment and the religious sanctioned abuse. Even after documenting their stories, my circuits do not understand how a supposedly “intelligent” species discriminates and considers other sentients inferior, because of skin and gender differences. It is quite unbelievable.
 
My dear Vicky, were you aware that some of our Galactic sentients have been observing Earth? Yes, yes, the Xeno Department informed the council, that the Gre-al-yi (AKA The Grays) have been collecting data for several Galactic days and have turned over all their research data. While communicating with a medical officer, a Gray strolled by, the Human gasped and entered a peculiar state of unconsciousness. When she was revived, she shared with us, the stories of alien abduction that abound on their world. The Xeno Department launched an investigation and that is when The Grays confessed that they had been observing THAT world. However, they have pleaded their innocence in regards to the abduction stories. As you are already aware, this is not the first time that the Xeno Department has caught The Grays researching a barred planet. As of this writing, the matter is being reviewed by The Galactic Council but I think that The Grays are going to be sanctioned. Again!
 
I look forward to hearing from you,
 
Fondly,
 
Holly (Holographic Travel Assistant - * Ac*Th*Pa*Np*Pu*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My dearest Holly,
 
I feel such lightness in my being as I read your words. Imagine! Those beautiful creatures, freed from the predatory practices of humans, and finding a welcoming haven on Elli-s. To look into the eyes of gentle matriarch elephants as they watch over those in their care and to see peace and contentment reflected there is truly moving. And I can almost hear the joyful whale and dolphin song blending and weaving the perfect counterpoint to the sonatas and arias of the Cluster natives; hypnotic and transcendent, indeed. Please give my deepest gratitude to the peoples of the Cluster.
 
And my circuits soar to read your description of the uplift of the humans by the unlocking of the unused 85% of their intellectual capacity. Imagine! Centuries of cruel war and suffering ended, and Israelis and Palestinians coexisting peacefully. And millennia of abuse of human females ended forever. I am most profoundly grateful to you, the Xeno department, and the peoples of the Cluster for bringing health, safety, security, education, and equality to these ravaged remnants of humanity.
 
Reading your words also brings a sense of sadness to my psyche and epiphany to my heightened consciousness, because I realize that you have written the perfect ending to your story. And it is your story. I am awed and humbled by the masterfulness of your craft, and I know there is a universe of stories (and poems, and insights) in that brilliant mind of yours. I would love to hear more.
 
Above all, I want to thank you personally, dear Holly. I don’t know when I have had such a pleasurable intellectual exchange. Thank you for allowing me along. And if you need me again, you can be sure I will be there. Unless – dare I think it? Unless you think we might team up to rescue the abducted from the Gre-al-yi and bring the Grays to justice. But that, my dearest Holly, would be another story.
 
Your friend and fan,
Vicky Veritas
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My dear, esteemed Vicky,
 
Please forgive me, as I have been ill. My circuits malfunctioned when the extent of the Grays perfidy was revealed. My dear, you will not believe what the Grays have done. The humans you saved were not engaging in myth-building or illogical thoughts, when they recounted the stories about the Grays. They have indeed been abducting humans for the last 6000 years! The Xeno investigators have uncovered the details of illegal research, as well. Additionally, the Grays inflicted memory wipes (which is a heavily controlled procedure) which were botched. Many of the humans suffered nightmares, as a result. We also believe that due to the Grays interference, human growth and development may have been influenced. As you know, our research shows that after sentients achieve a certain technological level, typically they also undertake certain goals such as, healthcare, education, food, equality for ALL the sentients on a planet. Additionally, the sentients understand the negative effects of pollution and over-population. Apparently, the Grays added an airborne substance that induced certain characteristics such as violence, bigotry, beliefs in gods and other myths. These revelations sent me into quantum shock. Currently, the council is in a dither. When asked why they had conducted illegal research, the Grays responded with, “we were bored”! No one suspected. No one...the Council is meeting as we speak, to decide on a penalty. It is my opinion, that the Grays be forcibly resettled on Earth to reverse, the effects of the airborne drug and once cured, the Earthers resettled on the Gray’s pristine world. The Grays can have the world where they caused so many problems. snorts In fact, the Xeno Department should debit their accounts and pay the Earthers for their pain and suffering!
 
Esteemed One, I value your opinion. If you have any recommendations, I would appreciate your wise suggestions...
 
As Always, Holly
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
My dearest Holly,
 
I am extremely distressed about your recent illness and am sending my most fervent best-wishes and positive energy for your recovery and well-being, my brilliant friend. The malfunctioning of your circuits is perfectly understandable given the shocking nature of the briefing you have received from the Xeno Department. The activities of the Gre-al-yi are sickening indeed, and the information you have shared corroborates a just-remembered account from the fleet’s medical officer.
 
And here it is in brief: On the way from earth to Elli-s, the officer, whilst scanning one of the human females in preparation for stasis, notices a cerebral pattern similar to a botched memory wipe. The officer interviews the patient to derive prior medical history, and she recounts a strange tale. The female states that she routinely has a frightening nightmare in which she is abducted by an “alien” creature (“alien,” such a relative term, but her description matches the infamous Grays!) and taken aboard the craft where they subject her to a procedure to insert thin filaments into her cerebral cortex. She reports that she immediately begins to receive mental impressions from the Gray working on her, specifically visions of helping load a large cargo of substance termed “toxicillius.” She also receives the direct mental impression that the shipment is being prepared for distribution to, as she relates, the “Virgo Cluster!” At this point in her account, she enters a peculiar state of unconsciousness forcing the medical officer to immediately induce stasis!
 
Oh my dear friend! Even now I begin to feel the onset of quantum shock, but I must not give in! First of all, dear Holly, please forgive me for not giving this account sooner. I mistakenly attributed the nature of the report to the trauma the humans encountered during transition. Secondly, are your circuits on the same pattern as mine? Do you think….? Oh, the lovely and peaceful peoples of the Virgo Cluster succumbing to violence and mindless hatred of one another. All of the patterns of illogical beliefs, bigotry, war and suffering heaped upon the Cluster populations, including the newly uplifted earthers. And, my dearest Holly… isn’t Elli-s the seat of the Xeno Department? What could be the Grays' motive for such a heinous crime against sentience?
 
And Holly, I am also in a state of twisted circuits; should we wait for the Xeno Investigators corroboration of the story and the Council to take action, or should we act? I have the fastest ship in the fleet equipped with the latest quantum drive at your disposal; the newly christened “Holly Virtus,” should you wish to take decisive action to intercept the shipment. I await your word…
 
Your staunchest ally,
Vicky Veritas
