Eve Heidel's Profile
Science Today Magazine printed an interview with me in their August 2007 issue, which I received permission to post here. The interviewer is Matt Bradwell (MB). EH is of course for Eve Heidel.MB: How did you first come across the notion of the Hollow Earth, and what made you decide to pursue it?
EH: Actually, it was my husband's work, initially. We were both physics professors at the same university - that's how we met - and he'd developed this theory that what people had been referring to as the Hollow Earth was actually an unfurled Calabi-Yau Manifold... a kind of bubble of space lying "off to the side" as it were, of normal space. The Earth, of course, is not hollow. Anyway, Keith, my husband, figured out a way to get some readings of this space, and shortly after... he went there. No one has seen him since. And that gives you an answer to the second part of your question. I've picked up the work, and have been trying to find out how to get more people there, so we can find him. We've made some progress, of course - the PsyPets are proof of that - but I haven't been able to get any readings regarding Keith's whereabouts.
MB: Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize.
EH: No, it's alright. Please continue.
MB: Right. Next question. What is your favorite PsyPet, and why?
EH: I barely have time to take care of any myself. Really, none of us do, that's why we started looking for volunteers. At first we were only using the PsyPets to experiment on pulling things through from the Hollow Earth, we didn't realize they were sentient at the time, and I'm admit there were several accidents early on. Um, but to get more to your question, I did take care of one for a while: Lukas, a Fountain-Tailed Cat. He was a real sweetie. I don't know what happened, but one day he was just gone. Shortly thereafter we suddenly had PsyPets coming in uncontrollably from Hollow Earth. I can't help but to think that Lukas had something to do with it. That's when we put out the call for volunteers.
MB: Bubbles of space, PsyPets... I think a question on a lot of people's minds is how Hollow Earth will affect the rest of the world.
EH: It's hard to say. I can tell you that most governments have instituted very strict laws against bringing anything from Hollow Earth in to their countries. Not just the PsyPets, but any of the plant life, such as Aging Root. Not that I disagree with that standpoint - mixing ecosystems can have unpredictable and disastrous results - but I feel like this isn't the only way in which we're being quarantined here. For example, we've found remains of a large and complex civilization in Hollow Earth, which Julio Beiler has been studying. Who were these people? Were they even human? Where did they go? The answers to these questions could have powerful ramifications on how we look at the world - the universe - but so far the entire topic is ignored by most of the scientific community. Some people even say that this whole project is a stunt. I know those kind of people change their mind if they'd actually come here, but of course they never do.
MB: Hm. Well, hopefully this interview will give some of those people pause for thought. Another question I've heard, somewhat along those lines, stems from the increased funding you're receiving from private businesses. Saying that Hollow Earth is a stunt is really on the mild side, compared to theories that you're building up your forces for world domination. Do you have anything to say in regards to these kinds of theories?
EH: I hope that these "theories" are as immediately ridiculous to most people as they are to me, and everyone else here. I think the worst one I read about on some web site suggested that I killed my husband and created this whole thing to cover it up... Anyway, I think this interview speaks for itself.
MB: Sorry, I can tell this topic upsets you. I have one last question: what were you like as a child? Were you always interested in science, and space, and aliens and the like?
EH: Kind of. I wouldn't say aliens so much as dragons. I read a lot of fantasy stories when I was young, so in a way I guess that prepped me for the weirder side of science. I remember what finally got me interested in the real nitty-gritty science was a physics class I took in high school. I was trying to get as many of the "advanced" classes as possible for my college resume, of which physics was one, especially in my school, which was largely dominated by football jocks and cheerleaders. Anyway, I'd never thought I'd be so interested in the topic. I thought I'd write - I just happened to also have a knack for math. But then I took this physics class, and realized that's what I wanted to do in college. My parents were happy to support me whatever I did, so long as I did it. Physics, writing, didn't matter to them. Hm. Was there anything else?
MB: No, that about it wraps it up. Thank you, Eve, for your time.
EH: Of course.
