Earth-515.5.SA-99: A Future with A.I. that’s Much Smarter than People Think

This world's technological development is somewhat lackluster in its advances in biomedical, robotics, or space-flight achievements: there are no miracle-cures, androids or space colonies. Instead economics spurred the growth of telecommunications, displays, and consumer electronics and computers. Its crowning achievement is the writing of adaptive A.I. agents. When people interact with these A.I., the programs …

Cyberspace-507.6.TR-1: A Reshapeable Virtual Reality of Geometry

In this virtual reality, much of the architecture is angular structures.  Raw voxel grid construction is not uncommon, though other regular crystalline solids can be found as well.  Despite this default architecture (or perhaps because of it), exotic shapes are considered high art. Due to positioning complications the rules of virtual space have for a …

Visualizing Your Place in the Solar System in Proper Scale

Earth is home. Our Solar System is also home, but it is far larger than most people realize. Part of this is an inability to experience this distance in person: most people never spend much time traveling across the planet Earth in a way to take in the size of all our continents and seas, and our local backyard in outer space is orders of magnitude larger. Another problem can be the way space is presented to our visual minds in scale.
