So, we're dealing with the speed of light and how we now know the speed of light is actually twice as fast as we thought. Additionally, we can look at neutrinos (the only neutral subatomic particle which people believe is associated with dark matter), and we choose to believe they are ideally proof of the residue left behind when Katarans travel between planets, galaxies, and universes.
Even in Science Fiction, there seems to be a battle of sorts between magic and science, and I get it. I truly understand how it can be equally strange for a society which operates in science to acknowledge the legitimacy of magic, and for a society which operates almost entirely in magic to utilize science or technology. So, I created a world, well...a galaxy. Rignor Galaxy.
If you have been reading the series, then you are very well aware of the Katara and how the Guardians of their race allow them to travel virtually everywhere on Bolts of Lightning. However, this isn't regular ole lightning as it appears in normal everyday storms. This Lightning is the consciousness of The Universe, and is conjured up by the Katara Guardians who then get pulled into The Lightning, their bodies instantly disseminated into what our scientists see as neutrinos, for the flight from one location to another. When they arrive on a planet, their bodies are instantly reformed to look, act, think, and speak in their normal ways. Yet, they do so in a manner which allows them to physically function, in top form, under the environmental conditions of the planet where they land.
Don't you just love Science Fiction? Especially when we throw a little Fantasy in with it? Well, that's how I came up with Rignor Galaxy and all of the adventures which lie therein.
If you haven't had a chance, start with Guardian Mine, move to Avenger Mine, and before you know it Legend Mine will be ready for you! There's no better way to spend a long, cold, winter than snuggled up by a fire reading a great book.
I hope to have Legend Mine out for you faster than...well, you know...
