I’ve never felt that I was making any of this up–not the name, Earthseed, not any of it. I mean, I’ve never felt this was anything other than real: discovery rather than invention, exploration rather than creation. I Wish I could believe it was all supernatural, and that I’m getting messages from God. But then, I don’t believe in that kind of God. All I do is observe and take notes, trying to put things down in ways that are as powerful, as simple, as direct as I feel them.
