Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Transcript For Strip 1153

Panel 1
Foot, Lumbar, Bok.
Lumbar: 'Hu is Aliss Roaz.' We have seen and heard this expression come up repeatedly in the last five years. Do you know what it means?
Bok: I don't know. And you don't know, either.
Lumbar: That response is not helpful, Mr. Clark. You cannot know what I do or don't know.

Panel 2
Same scene, focus on Bok.
Bok: I know that you don't know what that expression means.
Bok: Look, it means what I just said, that 'I don't know, and you don't know either.'
Bok: It means that your precious social structure makes no sense.
Bok: That there must be some reason things are the way they are, but that reason is hidden.

Panel 3
Lumbar and Bok.
Lumbar: You are speaking nonsense. Of course our social structure is entirely sensible.
Lumbar: You are still immature, Mr. Clark, and subject to immature passions.
Lumbar: That is the reason you cannot see the correctness of our society.
Bok: Yeah-yeah, if you say so.
