Quantum Earth – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

‘When the two women form the hotel reached the tenth and top floor they went to the beach side where there was a balcony overlooking the scene. “Oh my God!” said one. Words failed the other, for in the distance, about a mile out they could see a giant mountain of water the size of which their brains couldn’t comprehend. And it was building larger as it headed for the coast. They could still see several people way out who seemed oblivious. They began shouting at the top of their lungs, knowing even then that they wouldn’t be heard. But maybe there was a chance still for those on the beach below. Many of them looked up at them and tried to understand why they were screaming. But some of the people had already seen the big wave coming fast and hurried away from the beach. Some were screaming themselves as they ran. But they could see many small children looking lost. Nobody was taking them away. They would surely be crushed by the oncoming waters. All at once the two women stopped their entreaties and could only watch as the horrific scene played itself out. The wave had already reached those who were the furthest out. Of course they couldn’t hear the screaming, but they did begin to hear the low rumbling sound as the water came closer. It sounded like a freight train if you put your ear to the ground near the tracks.’

Dr. Mel Hawkins (Hawk) and Shauna Troy have formed a group that will study the sudden increase of natural disasters, and as 2012 approaches with the predictions that earth will no longer be, the team find themselves running out of time. Hawk and the whole team have agreed that there is the possibility that people are bringing the destruction on themselves with their thoughts and wishes. With this possibility, the team relies on its member Noah Meade, who is a medium, to contact some of those killed in these mass destructions. During one of the group sessions with victims of a major flooding, Noah is working through his “crossed over being” Jackson. As the team listen to messages from people on the other side, Jackson is suddenly taken over by a voice that isn’t earthly. This voice blames humans for the conditions of earth. It is the belief of the team that this voice may be from an alien.

Discovering that there may be a chance of contacting aliens that have passed on, Hawk and Shauna decide to have Noah try to contact them to see if they can shed light on what might be done to stop earth from being destroyed. Fortunately for them, Noah is able to get through, but unfortunately for them and all of earth they are told that earth is in the process of cleansing itself and to do this, humans must be destroyed so it can start over again…. Just as it did with the destruction of the dinosaurs. These aliens feel that no animal is a plague to the earth like the humans are. So, with the increase in earthquakes, floods, and even medical epidemics, the task before this small group of 7 is to do whatever they can to stop the destruction of the world?

Quantum Earth took me on quite a ride. If you listen to the predictions and theories for the year 2012 you will hear: there will be increases in earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes, left will be right and right will be left, just to name a few. Are we really creating these changes with our own minds? I think I’ve read somewhere that “thoughts attract” so only think good thoughts. I’ve for one have decided that, just in case this is true, I’ll think as many positive thoughts as possible.

People ask me to give a synopsis of the story. Well I say it isn’t fair to write something so short that has had my heart and soul captivated for the past four years. Inspiration plays a tremendous part and I can honestly say, the lyrics and music of Simon Lebon and Duran Duran have done just that.Their style has been the back drop for many a poem and now my bok. So, I shall do my best to describe it for you…
          In the pages of this book you will find that which is pure passion. A new story of old love and deprivation too. A metaphysical, metaphorical journey; of beauty and the ravages of ugliness.
          The pages of this book contain words that stem from emotion, experience, and of purpose; if you will, faith. In many forms but with a voice. It is not just the vocals of the beholder. There is not one meaning,but a potential for many.
           So, on your journey into Arcadia, along with the characters I have so come to love, I am certain you will find a voice, heart and perhaps a recognition of spirit as well.
           Oh yes and just to let you know…everything happens in Arcadia’s time. So, dip a toe in the water there, walk the forest, fall into the whispers of the moon. You may find you are lost forever in a place that is OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN.

There was a great disturbance in the balance. The opposition that occurred caused a fierce conflagration, leaving devastation and desolation all around. It lasted for many years and the world went into its deepest depression. There was no place to hide and no place to call your own. People died and they were reborn of a madness. Into and out of the depths of hell…they rose. It was like no world they would have ever imagined; there was no time to rest or you would be bested, and no one would allow life as it once had been.  

During the time of love and affections there had been seeds planted and they were born into this time of desecration, this time of turmoil. The children were left to their own devices and to their places in a world that had no governing. In this Hadean terrain they must reside and fend, to bring forth their offspring and to teach them to live among those that mean to do harm.

Spirit, air, water, earth and fire – it was back to the ways of simplicity. There was no Christian way of life, no peace. But inner peace must prevail, or there can be no sustaining of life.

It was prior to this that all practices began and there once was an inner peace, a time for learning. But not now; now they must struggle and take charge of their destinies to arise and make anew of an ancient way of life. A way of life to help them cope and help them make this a prosperous world, abundant once again in balance with the tides and where the solstice could once again be.

For now the seasons were all amiss in this poor new world of old, old times and of ancient ruin, as it was all at the hands of their forefathers. It was a world where the waters were unsafe to drink with bare hand from unfounded and forgotten rivers and streams. It was the soil that had been barren as a wasteland and not cultivated for seeds to be planted for sustenance to grow. They were alone, these children of unknown origin, alone in a world gone mad. And it is from here that they begin….


Amanda is currently working on a forthcoming poetry book and the sequal to OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN, entitled, Genesis Fire.
