New Guide For Newbies [ Jul 7, 2014 ]
This week we return to brand new strips of Quantum Vibe. Yay!!! We pick up where Seamus is in the middle of having a major metaphorical bowel movement, when he hears a helpful voice via his cortical implant.
Last week's series of strips, Our Story Thus Far, is now easily access-able through our new guide for readers. Perfect for the reader who just heard about Quantum Vibe, but wants the Cliff's Notes version because she wants to catch up fast and join the adventure now! A handy link is positioned to the right of the page navigation buttons on the Quantum Vibe web site.
Porcfest XI Remembered. [ Jul 5, 2014 ]
The Transcript For This Page
In the encounter room at Dalliances, Seamus and Nicole continue their ultra-private conference.
Nicole: I hope you brought us in here for more than a history lesson, Seamus.
Seamus: Quite so. I was merely establishing the context for my purpose.
Medium shot on Seamus.
Seamus: It is my theory that humans flourish best when they have frontiers to explore and conquer.
Seamus: Keep us bottled up within boundaries long enough and our culture begins to rot and erode, and people become either ennervated or self-destructive.
Medium close-up on Nicole, looking dubious.
Nicole: I – I suppose so, but we still have plenty of unexplored places in the Solar System.
Nicole: Don't we?
Seamus, looking ominous.
Seamus: We have a few such places on the inhospitable fringes, and your mother's Venusian terraforming project may well give us one more interesting place to build upon.
Seamus: But the rot has already set in.
Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Luna was once much like L-5 City is now, but, well, you'll see when we get there.
Nicole: Ok, so granted we need new frontiers, and the stars are probably out of our reach. What else is there?
Now Seamus smiles one of his enigmatic smiles.
Seamus: While we've been looking for new worlds across the canyons of intersteallar space, we have overlooked countless new worlds almost literally right around the corner.
Seamus: In alternate quantum universes.
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, Nicole rolls her eyes.
Nicole: Alternate universes? Oh, come on.
Nicole: David Deutsch proved way back in the First Century that we could never even detect them, much less cross the dimensional barrier.
Medium close-up on Seamus, looking determined.
Seamus: David Deutsch was brilliant. And, he was wrong.
