Hi Karen,

A longish answer to your question is in my blog post below:

https://caknutsen.com/2016/09/inspira... (Or you can click on this post on this page below)

A short answer is that I wanted to write about what we can be as a species. We seem to continue hurt each other; in our actions as individuals, in the groups we form (religious, skin color etc), the way nations interact with each other, and the way we treat our planet and the other life on it. We are better than this, or at least I think we can be. So I wrote the Janus Unfolding series populating it with an emergent version of us who do not act out of fear, but rather have a deep reverence for life in all its forms, and are driven to make things better.(less)

“I couldn’t make sense out of what I was seeing. There was a shiny metal arm about an inch thick with a joint in the middle and a knob on the end. The arm was knocking the knob against the window. The oddest thing was that the arm wasn’t connected to anything. It appeared to be floating by itself in midair!”
C.A. Knutsen, Tom and G.E.R.I.

“What? Are there two of them?” she asked. “Are we being invaded?” I laughed, but it was an understandable question given what she had just learned. “No, there is only one GERI. It’s something else. On Wednesday, when I let GERI out of the barn, I started the process of cleaning out the house. I found a ton of money under the floor in old Simpson’s closet.”
C.A. Knutsen, Tom and G.E.R.I.

“He wasn’t being arrogant. It wasn’t self-confidence that a human would have because they had been successful in the past. GERI was simply certain he would be successful because he was what he was—a superlative intellect, perhaps the only one of his caliber.”
C.A. Knutsen, Tom and G.E.R.I.

“When I lamented the sale of the gold bars, GERI said it wasn’t a problem because there was a more than enough of the metal below the floor of the barn where I was sitting.”

“Mr. Williams, in your short time boarding with us you’ve seen very little of my home,” Eleanor said. “I’d like you to see the rest of it, starting with my bedroom.”
C.A. Knutsen, Tom and G.E.R.I.

“You have just placed yourself in an untenable position, Mr. Mathews. You have made a threat that you cannot carry out. I’m not intimidated by your gun, so I won’t be going anywhere with you. I think you should re-read the book on successful information gathering techniques.”
C.A. Knutsen, Tom and G.E.R.I.
