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.

The Transcript For This Page
Diana and Monty are walking down a corridor, with Wook following.
Diana: All right, all kidding aside, what function might this hyper-whatsis serve?
Monty: It's not that difficult a word, Diana.
Monty: Hyper. Cube. (H)exa. Hedron.
Diana rolls her eyes.
Diana: Okay, okay. Hyper-cubexahedron. But what's it for?
Monty: I have no idea -- Remember that I said, 'sort of.'
Monty: In fact, a cubexahedron, hyper or not, can't exist in normal Euclidean space.
They're entering a different room, with other sorts of techy-equipment.
Diana: So, we're talking about extra dimensions?
Monty: Maybe three or four extras, I suppose.
Monty: But not the type of extra spatial dimensions that most physicists talk about.
Standing near a person-sized table in that room. Monty is looking a bit exasperated.
Diana: Why would Hayami want to build something that can only exist in theoretical extra dimensions?
Monty: I DON'T KNOW! It makes no sense!
Diana: That's why we need to figure out what this is for.
