    Books A Dark Matter of Memory, Amazon Publications, June 2, 2021 by Dr. Gary Metcalf A Dark Matter of Memory is a love story set in a future beyond nation-states.

Is it possible that what happens in life leaves imprints in the universe that can be found again? What could that mean for humans living beyond just here and now? The potential of the research catches the interest of powerful people, who would like to use it for their own purposes. It sends…
