I Have Fingers of Thunder

Johny Thundersbeard does not procrastinate about writing

Jurassic Dead

We can stand and marvel at the intricate workings of the brain. Experiences, memories: ripples of light, Synapses carrying messages. Watching it from within, a room full of people are in awe. It’s like they have discovered God, and God was here all along.

And then you read an excerpt from a novel, about how a lion upon taking over a new pack will slaughter all the cubs that are not his. His goal is to disseminate his own genes by getting the lionesses under his sway back in heat. He’s formulated this knowledge himself so that they will not waste their energy on cubs that are not of his line.

So beautiful, and so cruel.
