Q. Where did you grow up and was reading and writing part of your life? Who were your earliest influences and why?
A: I grew up in Guatemala and in Spain. In Guatemala I learned about the Mayans, and was always struck by their complete disappearance.
I visited several of their ancient cities. In the first book of the Last call from Earth trilogy, via the recordings of the past that
are kept in the parallel dimension of reality, we perceive the Mayans when they were in all their splendor. In Spain I became acquainted
with Teilhard de Chardin’s “revolutionary” inclination towards intelligent design versus creationism. I dedicate to him the foundation
concepts of my trilogy, the Rupturian Vision of Reality.
Q. Why do you write?
A: I’ve always been writing. I like to do it. It gives me satisfaction. It puts me in a special perspective.
Q. Who and/or what have been your biggest influences with regard to your writing and why?
A. In addition to Chardin already mentioned, I was impressed very young by Einstein’s ideas. I wanted to study Physics. But there were no careers
in Physics in Guatemala in those days, so I took Philosophy inclined toward Mathematics and Logic; continued with classical Philosophy in Spain;
ended up in New York with Mathematics oriented towards Computer Science. All these studies put together gave me an integral perspective.
The perspective is the key; it gives vision, and mission.
Q. Congratulations on a fantastic novel “Last call from Earth” This is a science fiction trilogy
Briefly explain the trilogy and how each story is related to the next. Please tell us a bit about the novel and what inspired
you to write it? How is the book different from others in the genre?
A. Last call from Earth is a saga for survival at a global scale. In the first stage, of biological survival, the normal functioning of
the DNA which we take for granted, is disrupted. We call this deficiency CRDS Circadian Rhythm Degeneration Syndrome.
People with CRDS can not be cured and I am talking of millions; their only salvation is to transplant their souls to healthy bodies that
we conceive and develop in lab environments. There is nothing artificial in the procedures. Every thing is natural. We select the best
ovules and spermatozoids representative of all races, and do fertilization in vitro. In the selection of ovules and spermatozoids we filter
out those with deficiencies, so that in the end what we create is a path for optimizing our evolution. The human beings conceived this way,
since they do not have identifiable parents, are called “Children of God”. The plan is to let then grow until they are 20 or so years old,
and then use their bodies as recipients for the souls of those infected with CRDS. It is obvious that when another soul is transplanted
into their bodies, they, the Children of God will cease to exist. This is where Stage I of the trilogy ends.
In Stage II, socio-political survival, there is a group that is against using the bodies of the children of God as is they were “suits”.
Their position is very clear: Those with CRDS, let them die… Since this is happening within the context of a precipitated freezing of
the sun, so that we have to get out of Earth in order to survive and we will not be able to save them all,
wars of a global scale arise. With major advances in technology obtained from the Rupturians a civilization that flourished for over 20 million years in a sea of plasma waves at the other side of the Milky Way, we come to be so powerful in destruction, that all previous world wars become children play. At the end of Stage I, the bioterrorist organization known as “Bacillus”, in a fraction of a second destroys the entire area of San Francisco without leaving not even a trace. Being the trilogy biological inclined, the major wars in Stage II are microbiological. What can we do to survive? How are the germs cultivated, accumulated and transmitted? What happens if the germs get out of control and come back to us?
Stage III deals with spiritual survival. What is the soul? What is the essence of our spirit?
In stages I and III we do soul transplants if two ways: physically transplanting the brain from one body to another, and transmitting the
recordings in one brain to another cleaning, “erasing”, first, what is recorded in the recipient. In Stage III we go a step further,
a take a gigantic leap forward: We learn to transfigure our souls’ spiritual energy into soulstrings, and with soulstrings we create life. With soulstrings we transmit the spirit of life. When somebody dies, with soulstrings we can bring him back to life. Of course if somebody dies because his liver is not functioning, if we bring him back he will soon die again. But the point is that we can transmit the spark, the spirit of life. Stage III is oriented towards the achievement of an integral evolution. As we did in Stage I that we perceived via the parallel dimension of reality the Mayans in all their splendor, and in Stage II when see as if we were there the massacre of thousands of Indians in Tenochitlan, in Stage III which a station of hope, we assist to the teachings of Quetzalcoatl, in Teotihuacan (The City of Gods), two centuries before Christ.
Q. What inspired you to write the trilogy?
A. Before writing the trilogy I wrote essays and articles, but I thought that if I put action, if I write a story, I can then include within it, as part of the context, my basic ideas, my fundamental paradigms. And this is what makes the book different to others the same genre; that is, in the science-fiction genre. Most of what appears in the book is close to reality; but I prefer to call it ‘science-fiction’ because then I have freedom: there are no limits, no boundaries to my imagination.
Q. Who is the Microbial Deputies Force (MDF)? What is the Rupturian technology?
A. The Microbial Deputies Force was created by the Human Survival Authority to oversee human salvage activities. They are, literally speaking,
invincible. As I say to my nephew Michael still a kid, a Microbial Deputy is more powerful than Superman, Batman and the Power Rangers combined,
and with an important difference, you can not be Superman, because Superman is from Krypton and your are from Earth, you don’t want to
be Spiderman… he is the way he is because his genes got mixed up with the genes of a spider, and believe, you don’t want to mess with
your genes… but you can be a Microbial Deputy… all you have to do is to wear an MD uniform and learn how to use it, of course.
The power of the Microbial Deputies is in their uniform, which is connected to the Human Survival Authority network. You can already see how the cellular phones are becoming everyday more powerful, with all sorts of facilities and communications. Now enlarge that with more powerful technologies. You have seen in science-fiction ships in space that are protected with a magnetic shield, apply the same concept but to a uniform, to a person, protected with a magnetic shield.
The Rupturians flourished for over 20 million years… can you imagine what that is? In only 1 million years we the Homo sapiens have evolved from living in caves to living in complex civilizations. Two hundred years ago we didn’t have telephones, airplanes, internet, etc. How advance is going to be our technology in 10 million years? Well, some of the Rupturian technology is at the very core of the Last call from Earth trilogy.
With Rupturian technology we do teleportation, souls transplant, souls spark transfiguration into soulstrings transmitter of life, we can perceive events from the past via the parallel dimension of reality, and, based on their understanding of the two dimensions of God: Being and Not-Being, we can bring existence into being from nothingness.
Q. Last call from Earth spans over a period of 280 years starting after the rupture on the universe, what are your ‘realistic’ thoughts
regarding our planet? Thoughts on ‘Global Warming’?
A. The expression “Last call from Earth” may be interpreted as the last call that a person is doing from Earth, or as the last call that the Earth itself is doing from an ecological perspective, as if saying ‘enough is enough’. Stop! No more degradation of the environment!
What can we do to stop global warning? It is too late to stop global warming. But we have to minimize it as much as we can. With China and India developing so fast the global generation of carbon dioxide will double our current level in less than 50 years.
In the Last call from Earth what happens is the reverse, the freezing of the solar system, but that is because of a rupture in our universe produced by a collision of reality branes, similar en concept but minor in degree, to the collision that exploded in the big-Bang 15 billion years ago… and obviously that is not realistic.
But the global warming… that is a fact. An unstoppable fact; what have to do is to find new technologies for the generation of energy; solar energy being the first. In the Last call from Earth trilogy, being biological oriented, we create energy with microbes.
Q. What is it that you enjoy about the science fiction genre?
A. It puts me in the world of tomorrow. I can do whatever I want. My imagination is my only limit. If somebody says to me, “you can not go faster than the speed of light” I can create a reality with layers so that light exists.
