About the Authors
In their book Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan attempt to explain the relevance of past events to "who we are." In the preface they express hope that others will attempt to "vault over or burrow under the high walls erected between various sciences in order to properly address our collective cultural and biological history." My sister and I are private individuals who have simply stumbled over a wall and made a startling discovery. The interdisciplinary nature of our scientific interests no doubt aided us in developing a theory that cuts across many scientific realms. Jeanette has jotted down her impressions of the process, available [here].We consider ourselves to be ordinary people with a well developed sense of wonder about the physical world around us and a responding level of inquisitiveness about how it evolved. The fancy advanced degrees we hold are from the school of hard knocks.
All human beings are - in some sense - survivors. The term applies aptly to us, being siblings with many shared experiences as well as diverse individual ones. The Saginaw Impact conjecture is all about the survival, renewal and growth of mankind through the terraforming of the earth. Simply being open to the possibility of such a catastrophic image of geology was certainly essential to the exploration of this solution set. I was eyewitness to the events of September 11, 2001 in New York City. Such an event as that sets into one's consciousness a new standard for "Shit Happens".
