X and Y represent multiple meanings and metaphors in this story. X and Y are variables used in mathematics. They are sex chromosomes, Yin Yang, and more. The A is for Adam, and the E is for Eve. The letter E could also relate to evolution as a timetable moves from 150,000 years ago to the present. You will find scientific, creative, reflective, metaphoric, and associative thinking in this story—a whole lot of thought going on. Don’t let the scientific narrative stop you. It moves along in the story. I use it to tell you how things are built and made, so it is believable. Otherwise, my story would be magical realism, one of my favorite genres. Gabriel García Márquez was my favorite author when I got out of the military and started college on the GI bill, and pursued my interests in literature and horticulture.
I also weave religious elements into the story; I must if I’m talking about Adam and Eve and genesis and relate them to modern scientific, spiritual, and plausible explanations. When I say modern and plausible, I mean no disrespect, but the language has changed, and our thoughts and consciousness have with it from a story written in the 8th century B.C. If an asteroid or meteor streaked overhead in the sky, or a tidal wave struck a shoreline in the 8th century B.C. The event and its description would be told entirely different than today.

Suppose I talk about Adam and Eve, time, consciousness, and the fate of the world and humanity...
