about our team

about our team

The Sea Free Science Team collects evidence of the existence of Sea Free by: (a) observing instances of connection and manifestation (b) translating and transcribing aural histories conveyed from the myriverse (c) hypothesizing what Sea Free is like and what we might learn for our world, and (d) cataloguing artefacts of the Sea Free myriverse.

N. M. Chin had been experiencing songs and stories of Sea Free for three years when she put out a call online, in 2013, through her networks to find others who had been experiencing the same phenomenon. Over the next four years she would make contact with over 36 Sea Free receivers, while identifying a core group of people who wanted to invest more time in the study of Sea Free. This search culminated in the launch of the Sea Free Science Team in 2017.

Team members have been experiencing reflections/resonance/passages of Sea Free into this universe for over a decade. We welcome others who may have stories or artefacts of Sea Free to reach out and connect. We will be developing a public guide to how we discern stories and artefacts of Sea Free by mid-2022.

N. M. Chin – Builder, Gatherer

N. M. Chin runs CoLab Create a community art space in the heart of downtown Lewiston, ME. She also founded Up With Community to serve teams in building practices of creativity, impact and freedom. N.M.’s background in community organizing and community improv set her on the path that would ultimately lead her to Sea Free. Through community service in global communities and the healing of self-expression, she began to hear Sea Free on the winds of long walks or after putting down good books. 

N.M. is a builder at heart: weaving together her love of handmade crafts, spiritual explorations, and travel in service of this team. N. M. works closely with Amos to collect the histories of Sea Free while on her travels, both to homelands in India and Eastern Europe, and lots of places in between. She works with Damaya on archiving the histories of Sea Free shared in the Shards Map. She lives in her heart’s home in Maine with her husband and their 2 children.

Amos Hurton – Explorer, Gatherer

Amos travels the world seeking artefacts of Sea Free, collecting first hand accounts of manifestations, and hunting for a portal through. Amos grew up in San Juan, and now resides in Albuquerque when not traveling.

Hyphae – Connector, Transporter

Hyphae is the newest member of the team, enabling us to move information throughout our team and from one place in the project to another. Hyphae senses the energy and needs of the project and directs our attention accordingly. 

Originally from the tall tree forests of Eastern Washington, Hyphae was an explorer and artist at heart since they were knee high to a champignon. They are an avid fan of mycelia and mycelial network, and bring this wisdom to their work on our team. Hyphae currently resides amongst 300 year old trees and rushing water in the Hermitage in the heart of Maine with their family and offers online training and technical assistance for network weaving and community building.

Dr. Meg Moody – Lead Scientist

Meg Moody is the Alan G. Grumble Professor of Physics at Rocannon University where she specializes in quantum mechanics and the interplay of quantum fields with other matter. Oldest of four, Meg first became intrigued with this particular field through the tutelage of her mentor and ultimately thesis advisor Olga Dykowicz at her HBCU. Working together they mapped numerous new time and space vortices over the course of 10 years, until Olga’s passing in 2015. 

Meg hails from Malaga Island off the coast of Maine, and considers the rough shores of the Atlantic her home. Her ancestors were tragically forcibly removed from the island, by those greedy for land and afraid of miscegenation- among other oppressions. Meg returned to the land with her family generations later.

She first began to hear songs of Sea Free in her late night walks along the shore. N. M. found her through blog posts Meg started writing on her Tumblr page in 2017. First thought to be delusions of grief, N. M. helped her realize these messages might be the next phase of her research. Meg is currently pursuing several international grant opportunities to pursue further research into the nature of Sea Free, and how to translate lessons from that myriverse to our own.

When not teaching or in the lab, she lives on the island with her wife Callie who sometimes pitches in with research and analysis for Sea Free. They live with their dogs, and treasure joyful visits from their grandbabies.

Jorge Robas – Philosopher

Jorge Robas is a buddhist monk and philosopher practicing out of various locations across North and South America including, but not limited to: Tucson, AZ, Cartagena, Colombia, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Baja, CA. Jorge offers a wide range of meditation guidance, and has been a peripatetic teacher for over 30 years. Additionally, he is the author of 7 novels combining mythology, fantasy, sci-fi and magic realism, two short-listed for Nebula awards in the U.S.

First called to practice by his Uncle, Jorge has honed an approach to meditation that put him in touch with the song of Sea Free from a young age. It wasn’t until 2018 when N. M. found him through a mutual friend, that he began to see these songs as not merely a manifestation of the divine, but as messages from a sacred space to be decoded. Jorge helps N. M and Damaya decode the meaning of aural histories, he works closely with Meg on translation from Sea Free to English and is helping refine the narrative of the histories collected in the Shard Maps.

Damaya Swan – Scribe

Damaya is a graduate student at Rocannon University, and a research assistant to Dr. Moody in the field of Quantum Physics. While double majoring in Physics and Dance at Swarthmore College, she began to find artefacts from Sea Free through her experiments. Amos found her research in 2019 through her cousin in Chicago, and helped her earn a spot on Dr. Moody’s team at Rocannon. 

While Damaya is not able to hear the songs of Sea Free, she has been one of only 3 known people of our universe to witness the appearance of a Sea Free artefact in real time. She splits her time between archiving histories of Sea Free from the team, and her experiments with Sea Free artefacts, supported closely by Jorge and Meg. 

Damaya resides on Rocannon Island at the University year round with her rabbits and chickens.
