My conception of Science Fiction exists in a vast borderland, as Rod Sterling narrates in the beginning of The Twilight Zone episodes, “It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of the imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.” This Twilight Zone spans space and time, spans human conceptions of reality, spans human consciousness into and beyond our universal knowledge, and knowledge of the universe. Science Fiction is the future woven on the spinning wheel of the present, and past; it is woven with story threads, colored with energy that brings life into existence, characters into being, and ourselves into the infinite choices of humanity’s woven tapestry.  The human experience is entangled within the fabric of our world. Science Fiction tunnels through that fabric of thought, of reality (individual or collective, social or economic, past or present, etc.…), of this grand experiment we know as life on this planet. Our literary techniques, as writers, function as a transportation system. Where will we go, and what techniques or methods will we use? What genres or sub-genres will we write about, and will we use Hard sci-fi (science based) or Soft sci-fi (social)?  To me, Science Fiction is our “Tomorrowland,” creating our own present and future realities. My definition of Science Fiction borders on the endless possibilities of future realities.
