Near-future hard science fiction shows its age very quickly. In fact, one scientific fact in this story was proven wrong between the time it was accepted for publication and when it actually came out. That trend has continued since it was first published in 2010, but I remain fond of this one, largely because I still don't know the answer to the central question: Is a Neanderthal a human or an animal?

An expert in gnosticism says I've retold a creation myth. The seed for this story was the idea of some things being unknowable--Gödel's incompleteness theorem. There're also references to axiomatic set theory. There's an exploration of the dialectical relationship between thought and matter. All these wondrous tools to understand the universe are really ways of understanding people. This is a story about a couple growing up together, and growing apart.
