The Cave of Portents: Musings about Science and Philosophy

I wrote a short fictional piece back in 1999, called "The Cave of Portents" with the intention of including it in my book:

The Pursuit of Destiny: A History of Prediction

It ended up not making into my book, but I thought I would share it for the very first time.

Here is a link to the story:

Rick, I'm glad you found the piece thought-provoking. You are very welcome!

Lisa, thanks so much for your kind comments!

The piece had been sitting in my computer, wanting to get out, so I thought this would be a good opportunity!

Thought provoking. After reading it I am not sure I am who I've thought I was all these years, of where I am at the moment or what time it might be. Thanks for sharing!
