**DISCLAIMER: NO SCIENCE. FUCK SCIENCE. NOT PHYSICIST SCUM.**
Also: Wrote this assuming the 4th dimension spans time, and isn't just some extra space. idk why. Replace any mention of it with your own pet theory about how we'd transfer matter in leaps through time.
Taking the "wanton list of...
Well, visual/verbal preferences aside, tumblr is structured in such a way that it works far better as an image streaming site and less as a traditional blog. I believe they've tried to make it more friendly towards text posts lately but there's still no collated comments section and organization...
Form and substance, but I prioritize the first. I enjoy interesting narration.
Also, puzzles. [Not necessarily as oblique as a mystery - fatedness or foreshadowed revelation will do.]
I avoid the maudlin.
Surprisingly little overlap. I was just looking for Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs.
Totally going to used this thread as a personal repository/catalog of sci-fi reads.
A couple of novels come to mind immediately. It's been a while since I read either of these, so pardon any inaccuracies.
The crux of this story is that neural implants are being distributed among...
Oh cool! So haven't been paying attention to avatars at all [because I'm more likely to be messing with face detection and tracking than excited about it] but it'll be crazy relevant when it comes to basic immersion (mirrors exist; in sightline you were a pair of floating eyeballs) aaand any...
Isn't dreaming entire lifetimes normal? I'm rarely myself in my dreams.
Anyways, the bulk of life and how we understand ourselves is pretty much fictional. One cloud of delusion isn't that different from the next.
Starts a dream journal every month

So here's how I find it most easily conceived:
A) You're the unlucky offspring of an incestuous line of blue-bloods, with all the physical and intellectual defects one could reasonably expect. Isolated in shame to protect the family reputation, your barren and lonely childhood leaves you...
I had depressant-narcotic in mind, but its true nature is up for debate. I will adjust the graph if a consensus is met.
I'm bored, so here's a summary of your options. Spot the forum!
I'm not sure what it would be in that context - It's easier to imagine a system of actions instead of quantities, where 0 is baseline, 1 is addition and -1 is subtraction. It's a debt more than just an absence, anyways.
Yeah... 1 is the purest, though, and every other number integer is just a...
I like this question! It's devious, though. We're not mathematical creatures, or we wouldn't be so fixed around the first three integers. It's not possible to break away from a very human perspective of counting.
A} Opposite of one is many - 1 is the the complete and uniform. Many is...
I tried to highlight the attractive elements of each possibility earlier, but since you're all throwing around accusations of assumptions, here it is: Darkest timeline version.

So the process of assimilation itself is excruciatingly painful. You're basically dissolved in...
Riiiiight. Way to make this about your identity.
The Living Planet
Suicide without all the agony and doubt. Though perhaps your memories are preserved and feed the mental bank of the organism - So it's actually a kind of immortality in stasis. You can end the pain of consciousness without...
This thread fills me with emotions. The OP first:
I believe these two questions overlap more than is addressed. Full immersion, by definition, aims to seamlessly insert you into a world. You become one with it, in that you become part of its mechanics. The actions you take have...
You need structure, Words. So have a Marzipan Castle!
(Built by me yesterday.)
(Oh, look at the book title... aha ha... ha....)
I quested for them. I fought seven hordes of flying monkeys! I wrested them from the paws of their queen! I brought them back across the great oceans! I slaughtered those who came, those who challenged! And now I toil day and night! To raise a castle of death in which I will rule, sovereign...
I'm pretty fantastic at keeping other people's secrets, and pretty horrible at keeping my own.
If I'm keeping something from any given group, before long they'll all know about it, but not know anyone else knows about it. It's actually pretty amusing.
Also, after about ten years I assume...
As an honourary unicorn, I'm obviously obliged to remain strictly imaginary, and my personality likewise.
If I was forced at spear-point to make a choice, ISTJ.
I feel like I'm failing to contribute to this thread, so let's ramble!
I've known a few ENFPs. Probably more than a few...
Serious? No, I thought we thought it was just funny to hear girly sounding people read about awesome manliness...
I have a more obviously comical response about killer whales and foaming testosterone if you'd prefer. :D
Funny, I was pretty sure the world was in my head...
I suppose this would explain why I don't feel very protagonist-like, though. Might our grand designer deign to elevate me from lowly extra? I may be inherently boring, but you can change that.
