Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Screen shows a friendly, buxomly female cartoon character sitting at the edge of a fountain. Nearby is floating text: Scarlett Encaje and Our Arti-Folk Friends.
Scarlett: Hola! I'm Scarlett Encaje, and I'm here to talk about Our Arti-Folk Friends.
Caption: I'd think this was a children's program except for that decolletage on Scarlett.
The water from the fountain swirls around and forms four vortices around Scarlett, each containing a type of 21st-Century robot: from a Roomba to an assembler to an office mail distributor to one of the Mars Rovers
Scarlett: Since the advent of micro-electronics more than 1,000 years ago, humans have been making 'thinking machines' of increasing complexity for various uses.
Caption: Dem boobs tho.
Scarlett floats past other watery vortices, this time two large ones containing representations of positronic brains, one inside a vehicle and the other inside a mechanical man.
Scarlett: Hirai-Tezuka, a company from ancient Japan, made a breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence in the year 75 S.A., with the first positronic brain.
Scarlett: For the first time, engineers could create a general intelligence capable of true learning, and potentially, self-awareness.
Now Scarlett is juxtaposed with images of varying types of anthropic mechanoids, from something like Rosie from the Jetsons to something like C-3PO to something like 8th Man to a contemporary gynoid.
Scarlett: Fifty years later the positronic brain was superceded by the plancktronic brain, which remains to this day the basic technology for Artificial Intelligence. And thus arose a new class of person we call 'arti-folk.'
Caption: She should name one boob 'positronic' and the other 'plancktronic.'
