Getting lost on an alien land with four suns, multiple moons, and a community of sentient life from very different planets, what kinds of behaviors would you expect?
How do they eat (or better yet, who do they eat?)
How does gravity affect them?
How do they process light
how do they communicate?
how do they process higher concepts
What kinds of features would you see, knowing these creatures did not originate on your planet, with no reason to believe they would have our eyes, our appendages, our cellular structure…
Found in a distant village, this is the log book of an unknown bio-genesis researcher, embracing the unique opportunity to study alien life forms but also searching for a way home

Joseph McLaughlin is an abstract musician with a background in IT, heavy metal (bass player), degrees in Educational Research, Business, and Information Systems, and a former coffee shop owner. He is an inquisitor of chemistry, biology, physics, music, philosophy, religion, sci-fi and a plethora of other subjects.
He is autistic, but did not know until around 40. Prior to this, he spent most of his life trying to understand his eccentric behaviors and fondness for the peculiar without any “assistance” or “therapy”. He described his thought process as “matrix thinking”, because everything he had ever learned, observed, and experienced existentially sat on that matrix and was accessible all the time, regardless of context or subject matter – there was no “breaking down of appropriate information due to specific topics”.
The reason he is using Zarqnon as the nomenclature for authorship of this book is simply because it amuses him. He like things that are unique and that break the typical – why do it the expected way? If he is violating some preconceived notion of “how it is supposed to be done”, then it begs the question “why is it expected to be done that way?” Stretching outside preconceived paradigms gives us the flexibility to experience divergent concepts within paradoxical work frames. He challenges the norm consistently (mostly because he does not understand the norm, and even when he does, he finds it “unconvincing” and personally unconventional).
