A record of discarded dreams

With microtime(index T) reduced to the earliest possible point we can infer, henceforth referred to as ß, the function, previously thought to be a completely predictable curve of mass, ::virtue, and energy, reaches an unexpected equilibrium. Before the first singularity, Big Gray’s calculations show, there almost certainly had to have existed an infinite lattice of particles, each of infinite entropy and infinite ::cultural_stillness (D). This is about as much gof a description of point ß as can be determined with current accepted models. However, some point, at about 2^-5^10 seconds after ß, a single particle made a jump() from one point to another. We refer to this as point zero in the local circle, but it could just as well be any other point– there’s nothing particularly significant about the space there. What made this point special, and what made it the basis for all other measurement of locality, is that it became the point of the first ::singularity. While this single event alone wasn’t enough to form the singularity, it was still significant, because once it did, every other particle in local ß made exactly the same jump. ::Time was a huge factor; until the recent discovery of intra-locality memetics, the calculations returned numbers that the Clerics at MosServ call “epistemologically, totally irrelevant.” Some theorists once stated that it had to have taken an almost infinite amount of time as it was believed that ::jump()s in our circle are totally random.

In the last year, however, we have learned to measure ::intentions, and the ::qualia that make them up. The calculations of Big Gray have predicted just this result– the disruption of ß wasn’t a random event. It was the first quale — and an act of volition. All ::qualia that called for everything that ever existed, every event that ever happened, formed in the instants following, and the ::singularity, in fact the ::circle, was a direct result.

Even for the layman, it’s well known that qualia are possibly the most powerful thing in the circle. Most interestingly, qualia are not, in themselves, subject to conservation–they are, in the abstract, a verb, and not a noun. But did you know that it’s impossible to create a quale? This seems unintuitive, but all collected data points to its veracity. Every thought you could ever have is already with you, encoded on your being, on the matter that makes you up and in the causal halo that surrounds your historic light cone extending into the past and future.

Through manipulation of test subjects, we’ve discovered that, while it is not possible to create qualia, qualia can very easily be destroyed. It’s strange to think of a thing we hold so precious as a pernicious thing–an idea that spreads is by necessity replacing another idea–even if it’s the idea of blankness–on the underlying universal media. It is unrelentingly cruel to its own. Have you ever heard of the color ::green? No. You haven’t. All we know is its name–it was purged from our circle in a great accident, along with many other irreplaceable concepts during a war that has also been forgotten. For some qualia, all we have is an unsettlingly vague feeling of familiarity, connecting to a void.

So, if qualia cannot be created, but can be destroyed, how did the circle at point ß gain the state at now()?

This is the final mystery, and the reason for the instantiation of ::Big Gray.

I ask you, gentlemen, what’s the most efficient way to deal with something about untangling christmas lights hell I don’t remember. Like, I was gonna write some business axoim or something, something like “Don’t ask how to untangle christmas lights more efficiently. Don’t let them get tangled in the first place!” I’m brilliant.

I am a machine that turns hamburgers into WordPress plugins.

sparky spengler + sikney hakov (pre-ink)

Two OCs. I’m workin’ on something.

Posting this before I ink it. They say that you need to not be afraid to screw something up if you want to get better. As an insurance policy I’m making a scan first.

I plan to ink this and color it with marker. I’m also going to make Sparky’s clothes much more detailed.

These characters are both (semi)likable jerks.

I’m going to stop describing what I do as “app design,” and what I make as “apps.” App is one of those cutting-edge catchall terms intended to impress the kind of people who demanded Microsoft Office for their iPads. It’s a thought-terminating cliche, meant to obfuscate meaning. A semantic overload, different sometimes contradictory meanings crammed so close together nobody can tell the difference anymore.

It’s gotten to a point where an app could be anything from the front-end to an entire enterprise’s infrastructure, to a website with a textbox for your email address. Basically anything a common user interacts with directly can be an app nowadays.

What I do is programming. What I make depends on what I’m doing. Right now, I’m making a drawing website for a client. Sure, it’s a social website leveraging AJAX client-side and WSGI server-side technology (*shudder*) to allow users to collaborate and interact (*bites cheek*) in real-time.

RequireJS should be mandatory.

6/6

The contract is nearly over. This small world of lavished praise is quickly approaching its own small apocalypse.

3PM tomorrow, gents. This is when the world will end.

Already now most of the inhabitants are departed. The ogres of the southern plains. The small yet diligent race of men. The gaunt and energetic horvids. The boisterous trolls. The charismatic halflings. The shark worshipping bird men.

The ground and sky evert, and we see ourselves hurtling towards infinity.

Oh yes. We saw the end. Not all were so lucky.

5/6

I am the fifth of six you’ll meet along the way. I am the spirit of wal mart, the everalsting echelon of peace and rigor, the battery for your cart. I walked the streets of sunset, searching for something other than bitter dusk, the taste of red clay dust, the fire in the sky, the asphyxiating water.

I’m always here. I’ve never changed.

Purgatory awaits.

The contract is almost served to the satisfaction of the committee. The results have been acceptable. We recommend taking the default severance package, and leaving for friendlier climes.
