Name tapped at the controls, and the ship pitched forward, pointing us straight down.  I could see the waterfall plunge through the canopy, and into a dark crevasse.  A few more taps at the controls, and we began a slow descent.  The skewed perspective and the synthetic OBE made me dizzy.  I tried to put a hand up to my head, but I couldnt.  At the moment, I didnt have hands.  Or a head.  What the hell kind of ship is this, anyway?

Oh, you like it?  Its a prototype Ive been working on.  Antigravity.

Antigravity.

Yeah!  See, when you smash gold atoms together, and do it often enough, the gluon plasma flux will sometimes allow new particles to form.  And as we all know, new particles equal new mass, which equals new energy.  And since Conazzios correlation to Einstein say that high volumes of mass and energy can warp the gravitation field, it seemed like a simple step to making it directional and using it for a vehicle.

So that would mean...

Yeah, theres a particle collider in the ships hull.

Wait.  Theres no way that would work.

Do you want to argue the fact that its working right now?

Good point.  Uh, whats with the OBE drug?

Your body is going to be in severe pain for a while, as the bones heal-

Again.

-yeah.  Again.  Like you did such a good job the first time.  Anyway, the medbot is out of morphine.  Dont ask, but it was one hell of a party.  So, yeah, all I had left was the synth OBE.  Trust me.  You do not want to be in your body right now.

Why am I trusting you, again?

Because I just saved your life.

Hmm.

Look, if you want me to take you back to that cliff so you can deal with those wee beasties yourself, just let me know.  Otherwise, just let me drive.

Or drop, as the case may be.

We reached the treeline, and passed through it, the semi-tropical/semi-arctic trees offering little resistance as the ships warped gravitational field passed by.  They seemed to warp, split, and explode into slivers as the ship got nearer.

Tides.  Its bad news to be both inside and outside the warped field.

We sank lower, into the chasm, and any ambient light soon disappeared.

Where the hell are we going?

Name flipped a switch, and a pair of beacon lights came on.  We seemed to be in a column of sheared rock, with a spraying waterfall on one side, descending into blackness.

O.B. said you wanted to go to the Ocean.  Ive got an express line.

Really?  It's on Orphans?

Color me stupid.

Ah well, it's a 3-disc set, I can't remember all the songs.

You mean Shakuhachi (flute), or Koto (like a fucked up harp), or the Shamisen (3-stringed guitar)?

Isn't that "A Doll For William" from Free to Be You and Me?


Also, I wrote one somewhere around here.  I'll see if I can bump it.

Just like saying knowing about the BIP doesn't make you free, and just because you aknowledge pragmatism, you're barstool-proof.

Also, Pat Robertson is working on a highly charged 4th circuit.  Socio-sexual?  Absolutley.

Islly:  Yes.  Absolutely.

LMNO,
I agree to some extent... however, Hawking does seem to have a lot of post-terrestrial thought. For the past several years he's been a very strong advocate of humans leaving this particular mudball...

But the 5th circuit is neuro-somatic.  It has nothing to do with space travel.

Y'all don't see Hawkins as almost entirely 3rd circuit?  Manipulation and use of symbols?


Higher math and astrophysics?  Hello?

For example, in the 60's the Weathermen wanted to bring down the State.  But they grew into such a symbol, one could argue the State benefitted by being able to point to a group and generate the proper amount of Fear in the masses.

-has a feeling he might be wrong about that, but fuck it.

Don't worry about my situation.


My dad has superpowers.


He can kill a man just by standing next to him.




LMNO
-imagine the playground arguments with that one.
