Continuing Obsession with Sci-Fi/Non-Fi

Every spare moment in the last month or so has been spent watching episodes of Fringe. I have managed to watch four seasons this month and I probably would still be watching if I had the fifth season. I got so close last night to watching the fifth season - a dear friend of mine downloaded the season for me BUT didn't check it before handing it over to me... it was in ITALIAN. Now, if I were trying to learn the language, I suppose it would have worked. **laughing**

The characters in Fringe are all so very endearing especially Dr. Walter Bishop.  I am so impressed by the cast and the characters they played. I think I could watch all of the seasons over again. Science Fiction has never really been fiction to me... If it were up to me, I'd rename the genre Science Possibility. Science Reality.

The first science fiction book I read was, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle. I was in the fifth grade. It truly turned my mind inside out. I believe that all things are possible... not in a naive-type of way. No. I believe that the human mind is totally capable of bringing to fruition anything that we think of. Just a few short years ago, the cell phone was the size of a brick or larger and you had to be ballin' outta control to afford the monthly plan. Now, everybody has a cell phone and they are as tiny as a deck of cards and functions like a personal computer. ANYTHING is possible.

Lately I have been obsessed with the sci-fi subject of the Annunaki. Fans of the History Channel's Ancient Aliens or the radio show Coast to Coast AM are probably very familiar with the topic (huge fan right here). I am very fond of a diminishing line between fact and fiction and the line between possible and impossible. At some point, every earthling has to become very aware of the audacity and arrogance of thinking we are the only living things in the entire universe.
