Inca Gods and Aliens

From the lore revealed by the Christian priests accompanying the Spanish Conquistadors to the Laboratory to the Cosmos: A power discovered in ‘Inca, Gods, and Aliens’

As a Retired Medical Laboratory Technologist, Microbiologist, practical engineer, and someone deeply fascinated by the intersections of biology, philosophy, and the potential of human achievement, I have always been intrigued by the basic processes that sustain life. The Krebs cycle and the metabolism that is the essence of our basic cellular metabolism is undeniably a process that is incomprehensible at its core. What stands out as a fundamental biochemical pathway in our cells is the beginning of a process that I and others have examined under microscopes and through biochemical assays, revealing how energy is meticulously extracted from nutrients to fuel every cell in our body.

When followed, the pathways for basic life are agonizingly slow compared to the lightspeed and beyond surrounding us. Yet all of this rests on the foundations of worlds; rocks that are maybe billions of years at rest are created by atoms whose parts are furiously maintaining their place.

In my book, “Inca, Gods, and Aliens,” I extend this fascination into the realm of speculative fiction, where ancient knowledge and futuristic technology converge. Here, I explore a profound twist on the conventional understanding of the Krebs cycle by introducing its reverse—normally a method used by some microorganisms to fix carbon and generate their own organic molecules using external energy sources.

In this narrative, I hypothesize a scenario where the reverse Krebs cycle is not just a quirk of microbial metabolism but a gateway to enhancing human capabilities. By integrating advanced alien technology, characters in the story can manipulate their metabolic pathways to increase the production of, say, dramatically, lambdaATP, the cell’s energy currency. This biotechnological enhancement allows them to achieve physical feats that defy ordinary human limits, such as extraordinary speed, which is crucial in the climactic moments of the story.

It’s important to note, almost as an afterthought, that such a reversal of this metabolic process would place immense physiological demands on the body. Indeed, only with the assistance from the deity that exists between life and its foundation could an individual at the peak of his/her physical fitness potentially withstand such enhancements without dire consequences. The results could be catastrophic for anyone else, leading to severe metabolic imbalances or worse. This aspect of the story adds a layer of risk and underscores the ethical and physical limits of manipulating human biology.

Within the broader narrative, the implications of such an enhancement become clear as characters using this reverse Krebs cycle find themselves pivotal in a clandestine war over ancient secrets. Those enhanced with this alien-inspired technology could potentially outpace even the most skilled assassins, turning the tide in a shadowy conflict centered around the Vatican’s deepest mysteries. Their superior speed and endurance could make them unmatched on this dangerous chessboard, where every move could be lethal.

Drawing from my years in medical science, I aimed to ground these speculations in real biochemical principles, making the fantastic seem plausible. The journey through “Inca, Gods, and Aliens” is not just through the landscapes of ancient civilizations but also through the intricate pathways of our cells, reimagined and reengineered for a future where the boundaries between science and fiction blur.
