Re: Re: Re: Why does Brooklyn inspire so many young writers?
I myself am a young writer and every story I have written takes place in Brooklyn. I guess this is because I'm in love with how Brooklyn used to be; romantic and nostalgic, a real sense of what a neighborhood was. There were people talking to each other out windows and children playing in the streets, everyone watched out for everyone elses kids, it was an American community, but yet, it was a piece of every country. Immigrants coming from Ellis Island had their influences dabbled on it, and everything seemed to be meshed together to form a family that extended down the street and around the corner. I think Brooklyn itself offers an array of different opportunities for a writer to pick and choose a story from.

- The author, Dr. Todd May, is a philosopher who is known for advising the writers of The Good Place.
- The idea of human extinction is a big one, with lots of disagreement on its moral value.
- In nature, properties of Particle B may depend on what we choose to measure or manipulate with Particle A, even at great distances.
