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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Now the girls are in an electronics shop. Nicole is looking at a display of some screens. Ventura is looking thoughtful.
Nicole: Hmm. I wonder if Buford would like to have a Screen of her own?
Ventura: ... persons with rights ... what about Beltapes?
Nicole turns to look at Ventura, somewhat annoyed by the distraction.
Nicole: What about Beltapes?
Nicole: Oh. Yeah, Beltapes, furries, porpoises, anthrofish ... the rule is anyone who can understand what rights are and can both respect and demand them, has them.
Nicole is examining one of the Screens from the display. Ventura stands by.
Nicole: Ooo! A plasmodic orthochrome display! Sixty-four teraquad processor!
Nicole: Maybe I'll get one for Buford and one for me.
Nicole: Hey, Ventura, would you like one, too?
Nicole is turned to look at Ventura, a bit embarrassed by her faux pas. Ventura is demure.
Ventura: I would but ... I'm afraid I can't really own anything. I'm property.
Ventura: Anything I bring back to the shop is taken by my owner.
