Michael Blain


I have been reading and writing with the specific purpose of understanding consciousness and existence for most of my physical life. My entire view of writing and literature changed when I first read Aldous Huxley in grade school and he still remains, in my mind, the pinnacle example of what a human being can accomplish with the written word. I have an English degree from Ohio State, and adore too many different forms of literature and art to mention here, but I basically enjoy all forms of honest creative expression. My only humble goal with my work is to help people overcome the fear of death and outrun the grip of their id or alter ego. I hope you enjoy how I think and write, and I would love to hear how you do as well at michael.d.blain@gmail.com

This story is about the true self and alter ego/id, and how each person is already two people divided inside their own persona. The choices made, and what one can find the strength to let go of that will determine what defines who you are in the physical world. It is told through psychedelic perspectives, thrilling sequences, and philosophical quandaries into an addictive spiral of events.
