BEST SCENE Screenplay Reading: COSMOSIS OF WORLDS, by Richard Trask

Adam Chapman, 1.4 million years ago, on planet Longon, gets hurt in a rock climb and dies during a hernia surgery. His (random) exact replica self, Mark Meyhee, born on Earth in 1989, is also a rock climber. Mark is married to Mary; both are young attractive academic nonscientists. Like Adam Chapman, Mark gets hurt and has a hernia surgery, but he doesn’t die. In anesthesia, he experiences a three-hour time lapse, in effect a time-travel into the future. By this he discovers the phenomenon of Consciousness Everpresent (his term). Mary calls it the Eternal Life of Here and Now: that is, we have continual successive births as ourselves, with a seamless awareness but only of the current life.
