How Carpenter's horror movies reveal the sublime wonders and terrors slithering through the entrails of notional reality
Excellent, enjoyable article. A great distillation for fiction writers.
I admit, I can never quite grasp the thing it is that would lead to an aha moment- I assume no one can. I am woefully uneducated in the sciences as well, yet I like reading Meaninful Particulars because you provide so many bits that add to what is my conscious experience. Two things on this one. There is an interesting discussion of what a four dimentional cube might look like in the novel Solenoid and you wrote "The explanation destroys the magic". This is dead on for both horror and life in general.
