Story by Mr. Raymond Kenneth Petry, Strategic-Director
a Wision--SesQuaTercet USA production

[screenwrite][prospectus][project SesQuaTercet productions]

[science fiction] ... a short story I wrote ca. 1984 - and serendipitously discovered Pluton - rewrote and computer-composed ca. 1990 - a creative-writing exercise repartee to a famous author's stories, wherein I answered the larger questions, where are we, what's beyond, and the lesser questions, what are space-aliens: raised by said author. The story is layered: The outer story, 20 Billion BC, relates the pre-big-bang to our cosmos, the main story itself, ca. AD 2020-2100, suggests a development of connectivity with the cosmos in the author's genre, an inner story related as a 20/69 episode with Razeh Savage and Lew Pranceler, who send their Jorel d'Ewe on a billion-dollar visit to discover Retirement on Venus: Heaven or Hoax? - the gruesome details of leisure-science gone awry.

[The original was written in distinctive exacting separate word-punctuation and phrase-punctuation]

The movie shall be available primarily digitally recorded wide-screen [2:1] stereo-eyes-ed on digital video disk or digital video tape. The initial shoot shall be direct minute-by-minute to giga-byte hard-drive, 4 megapixels/frame, wavelet-compressed, copy-saved to CDROM - the digitized sound and music edited in synchronized fractions [frames] of a second - and the final product released on HDDVideo Disk. The advantage of digital video is its reproducibility for the future of both broadcast FDTV [Full Definition 'stereo-eyes-ed'] and movie-house. Image generation shall be further enhanced and assisted by state-of-the-art computer facility. The final result shall be viewable stereo-eyes-ed with white 'sexichrome' or polarized '3.5D-safety-goggles' ... telecined celluloid film and other substandard versions may be available.

[The music exampled in the following outline and screenwrite is the Strategic-Director's selection from hundreds of CD's of existing works by artists whose timbre and lyrics fit each on-screen activity, and is not otherwise representative of project SesQuatercet and its purposes]

Mr. Raymond Kenneth Petry, CS, BA, lecturer, is the author of FUNDAMENTAL CONTROVERSES: Christian Science Class Instruction * RKPetry, which takes-up the Holy Biblical Scripture as a synopsis of mankind's Scientific purpose on Earth - it is comprised of about 42 articles. Mr. Petry, 1973 graduate of UCSD, in mathematics, is a former crypto-TEMPEST engineer with Linkabit CORP [now, M/A-COM] of San Diego CA, on digital-radio satellite communications systems for the USA SAC/CommandPost [now reorganized and transferred]. He has served as the Vice President on his Branch Church Executive Board, and is Founder and current Trustee-Director of The Son Dey School of Christ Science and project 'lambhorn'. He has several science-fiction short-stories in his repertoire to be published at SesQuatercet.

[Mr. Petry also maintains several websites and posts on usenet news-groups and forums in the mathematics, sciences, technologies, digital electronic/computer engineering, and USA Presidential political-campaigning]


[20 Billion BC] Outside this entire cosmos is the original cosmos: ours but a singularity within. While his world squanders its blithe obscurity within the day-night blanket of its bright early solar nebula, an archaeo-physicist working on the remotest moon-planet in his solar system witnesses the final supernova of its once-giant sun. In a last desperate effort mauled in the subliming nuclear plasma, he flies his space transport vessel into the heart of the remnant black-hole ... his last shreads of intellect reduced to a stream of wavicles.

[AD 2020] Our cosmos is but a singularity within the original. This is the world we shall know within a few decades.

[AD 2069]

[AD 2100]

[Epilog] A return to the now-calm outer cosmos, and the end of the archeo-physicist.
