The Enormous Tiny Experiment begins when an atheistic Professor discovers a way to miniaturize life. In a secret attempt to develop a real Paradise, Professor Lemans uses his vast resources and scientific genius to create a beautiful domed terrarium and 21 Tiny people. Believing that he can keep his perfectly balanced and fully functional world free from all catastrophes and suffering, he hopes this will be the happiest place on earth. However, every month for the Tinys equals a normal human year. As they rapidly grow and learn, will the Tinys find the happiness the Professor believes is possible? Will life be an idyllic, fun-filled adventure from one day to the next, or will unpredictable events cause hardship even in Paradise?
Throughout the series, Professor Lemans proudly attempts to play ‘god’ to the 21 Tinys in the amazing terrarium he designed. However, he gradually comes to empathize with the dilemmas and decisions that his own, unacknowledged Creator faces daily. What happens when some don’t enjoy his perfect world? What happens when jealousy, selfishness and misunderstandings ruin friendships and lead to tears? What happens when the gift of knowledge leads to destruction rather than benefitting the community? What happens when rules are created on a whim, or expanded upon by others? What happens when personal bias collides with free will? Sadly, in the Professor’s valiant attempts to create a world without suffering, he overlooked one obvious flaw… a flaw that undermines everything he thought he had figured out.
Chapter 1 – Three Messages
The Professor and Evan are one day away from setting the enormous Tiny experiment in motion, and it’s a good thing as there is only one day left of their summer vacation! Evan responds to the Professor’s messages and stops by the nursery to tell the children that Paradise should be ready for them to inhabit by the next morning.
