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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
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.
Panel 2
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.
Panel 3
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?
Panel 4
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.
Panel 5
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?
Panel 6
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.
Panel 7
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.

Panel 8
Medium close-up on Seamus, looking determined.
Seamus: David Deutsch was brilliant. And, he was wrong.
