Abstract

AT THE SHORE / Carter Scholz "To myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and again finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." --Sir Isaac Newton At the shore the concordance of times is more vivid than elsewhere. Here future breaks foaming against past, erodes, reorders, casts hot spray into the fitful air of the present. In this record I speak of and speak in a long diminuendo of prose, by which I wish you to understand that my voice is failing, my resources running out. What doors open onto anything but more doors? None I know. I am surrounded by static, silence, charge, change, noise: whose structure can encompass any form. You must also understand that you sent me here--you are responsible. Dr. H. Rosenbloom, his initial a breath, his surname a mockery, late of the Wily Cypher Institute of Advanced Communications, approaches the speed of light in a starship christened Tn m'. The frequency of his communications with Earth is in chronic decline, due to increasing velocity and distance. His
