Creating and Researching ‘The Mechanics’

Like all writers, I research and explore avenues of fact and fiction to create the worlds in my stories and bring people to life. This is just some of my Behind The Scenes work.

  • Dark matter and extra dimensions?
    Extra dimensions could help explain the abundance of dark matter. The Standard Model of particle physics predicts that there should be much less dark matter than we actually observe. However, if dark matter particles live in extra dimensions, they could be much more abundant than expected. Extra dimensions could help explain the large-scale structure of the universe. The universe’s large-scale structure, such as the distribution of galaxies, is thought to be influenced by dark matter. If dark matter particles live
  • Alice Bertha Clayden
    Alice was the first woman to hold a senior rank in the police force, and paved the way for other women to join the detective branch. Alice was born in 1885 in Grantham, Lincolnshire, the daughter of a police inspector. Alice first worked as a teacher and a social worker. She joined the Women’s Police Service (WPS), a civilian organization that assisted the police, in 1915. In 1919, the Metropolitan Police began to recruit women as police officers, and Alice
  • Glori
    Gloria first appears in ‘The Mechanics’ she appears again in ‘Magic – Day One.’ Gloria a technorganic being one of a race evolved from a complex synthesis of metals, alloys, and organic matter. Their bodies can, over time, morph and adapt to survive and blend in to live on any planet The evolution of living creatures with bodies made from a complex synthesis of metals, alloys, and organic matter arose from a specific set of conditions on Glori. These metals
  • Squats in Kings Cross in 1970’s
    There were a lot of squats in the Kings Cross area in 1979. The area was in a state of decline at the time, with many abandoned buildings. This made it a prime target for squatters attracted by the cheap rent and the sense of community.Some of the most famous squats in Kings Cross in the 1970s included:Derby Lodge: This squat was located on York Way, and it was home to a large community of punks and artistsHuntingdon Street: This
  • Kings Cross 1979.
    King’s Cross in 1979 was a very different place than it is today. It was a run-down and neglected area, with many vacant buildings and empty lots. The station was dirty and overcrowded, and the surrounding streets were full of crime and poverty. The area had a long history of decline. It had once been a thriving commercial hub but had fallen on hard times in the early 20th century. The construction of Euston Station in 1837 diverted traffic away
  • Zero-Point Energy
    The Autonomous Intergalactic Consciousness Detection Device uses Zero-point energy. Julanan mechanics have successfully developed Zero-point generator/batteries that all come in the shape of cubes of various sizes right down to a sub-millimetre scale.Zero-point energy is the lowest possible energy a quantum mechanical, physical system may have. It’s a fundamental concept in quantum mechanics. It is associated with the inherent uncertainty and fluctuations of energy at the subatomic level, even in a system at its lowest energy state, usually called the
  • The Mechanics of Being
    First, there is a mountain,Then there is no mountain.Then there is. Julanans have bodies that quickly evolve and adapt to survive in the different environments and conditions where life has evolved. Their bodies adapt to utilise changes in air composition, solar radiation, and edible organic plants.As a result of experiencing life through a broader spectrum of senses, their understanding of what makes them who they are is not restricted to one bodily form. This, in turn, has led to a
  • The Autonomous Intergalactic Consciousness Detection Device
    The Autonomous Intergalactic Consciousness Detection Device (AICDD) detects signs of intelligent consciousness in distant galaxies by accessing the “Field of Consciousness.” The device integrates with a spaceship’s navigation system and engine, allowing for point-to-point intergalactic travel without the means of return. Components and Functionality: Consciousness Interface Module:AICDD includes an advanced module that interfaces with the Consciousness Field. It detects and interprets patterns, frequencies, or resonances associated with intelligent consciousness. Advanced Sensor Array:AICDD is believed to contain a highly sensitive array
  • The Field of Consciousness
    The “Field of Consciousness.” extends beyond the boundaries of conventional physical fields, such as electromagnetic or gravitational fields, and is the source of subjectivity and conscious experience in living beings. Nature of the Field:The Field of Consciousness is an all-pervading, subtle, and fundamental medium that permeates the fabric of reality. It is a non-material, intangible entity that interacts with and influences other fields, both physical and metaphysical, giving rise to the rich tapestry of subjective experiences. Interactions with Other Fields:Similar
  • Interstellar Intelligent Life Detection Device
    Interstellar Intelligent Life Detection Device Introduction:Before the discovery of Field of Consciousness and the Autonomous Interstellar Consciousness Detection Device, the Autonomous Interstellar Intelligent Life Detection Device (AIILD) was the only means to detect intelligent life on planets around distant stars. The (AIILD) was the first device made to integrate autonomously with a spaceship’s navigation and flight control system. Components and Functionality; Sensors and Detectors: AIILD is equipped with advanced sensors and detectors capable of analyzing various electromagnetic signals, including radio
  • Nanobots.
    The Vélvirki extensively uses Nanoscale robots, often called nanobots or nanorobots, for maintenance and repairs. Their design is based on the physiology of insects and function in various ways, integrating advanced technologies to achieve their tasks. Size and MobilityNanobots modelled after insects would be incredibly small, typically on a nanometers (billionths of a meter) scale. They mimic the locomotion of insects to navigate through complex environments using tiny appendages or structures that mimic legs or wings, allowing them to crawl
  • Nanosteam implementation in synthetic Limbs
    Nanosteam implementation in synthetic Limbs After the Wrychuns drove away the Nebro invasion, they introduced prosthetic surgery that made use of advanced nanotechnology. The replacement limbs were designed and calibrated to work exactly the same as the patient’s real limbs in terms of flexibility and strength.Enhanced Sensory Feedback: Nanotechnology provides sensitive and precise sensors for the Wrychun synthetic limbs. Integrating nanoscale sensors into the prosthetic delivers real-time pressure, temperature, and texture feedback, allowing users to experience a more natural and
  • Diamonds as Data Storage Devices
    Diamonds as Data Storage Devices. Many races use the exceptional physical properties of diamonds for data storage. In addition, their common occurrence throughout the universe has led many ships to include simple processing devices to prepare rough diamonds as data storage devices. The concept involves encoding information in the atomic-scale defects found within diamond crystals. Defects such as nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centres consist of a nitrogen atom adjacent to a vacant site in the diamond lattice. These NV centres’ unique optical
  • Hibernation Pods
    The earliest appearance of hibernation pods in science fiction can be traced back to the 1968 film “2001: A Space Odyssey,” directed by Stanley Kubrick. In the movie, the spacecraft Discovery One crew members are shown in hibernation pods during their long journey to Jupiter. Since then, hibernation pods have been featured in numerous science fiction films, often used as a plot device to enable long-duration space travel or to suspend characters in time. Some notable examples include “Alien” (1979),
  • Nanosteams
    Composition: Julanan Nanosteams are composed of tiny, nanoscale particles or structures that possess the characteristics of steam, such as high temperature and gaseous state. These particles are engineered at the nanoscale to exhibit unique properties and functionalities, enabling them to perform specific tasks. Applications: The ship’s Nanosteam system provides a complex integrated system. 1. Heat Transfer: Nanosteams provide efficient heat transfer in cooling electronic devices, power generation, and improving the efficiency of heat exchangers throughout the ship’s engine and computer
