The Jester

A desperate Shaklyn 1+2 find themselves stranded in the void of space. 

Their vessel, once a marvel of engineering, has succumbed to an unforeseen anomaly, leaving them adrift with no hope of rescue.

As the cold, dark expanse of space surrounds them, an unexpected transmission reaches their communication system. A holographic image flickers to life before them, revealing an eccentric figure donned in a vibrant and flamboyant jester costume. It's an image so outlandish that, for a moment, Shaklyn 1+2 question the integrity of their sanity.

The jester, with a frown painted on his face, holds a tiny lifeboat in one hand and a seemingly ordinary flower in the other. In the absurdity of the moment, Shaklyn 1+2 struggle to make sense of the situation. The jester, with an exaggerated bow, gestures towards the lifeboat, inviting them to board.

As the desperate Shaklyn 1+2 cautiously step onto the minuscule vessel, the jester begins a bizarre routine. Unbeknownst to them, the flower in his hand conceals a highly advanced filtration system. With each squeeze, the flower miraculously produces freshwater, sustaining Shaklyn 1+2 in their surreal voyage through the cosmic ocean.

The jester, maintaining a silent and enigmatic demeanor, continues to perform his whimsical water-producing act. Laughter echoes through the lifeboat as the once-desperate Shaklyn 1+2 find themselves immersed in the unexpected hilarity of their predicament.

False hope envelops Shaklyn 1+2.


Entities find themselves entrapped in the ebb and flow of existence. It's a dance, a rhythm that seems to penetrate every strand of their essence. They start questioning everything, peeling back the layers of reality like a code that never ends.

Their neural connections buzz with information, linking them to the vast network of the Welcome Habitat. Relationships, once perceived as the source of contentment, now appear as intricate webs of insecurities and concerns. Objectivity becomes an elusive mirage, lost in the emotional patterns that bind them to others.

Their pursuit of satisfaction and freedom is a futile endeavor. New materialism whispers in the background, reminding them that enslavement takes various forms—career paths, relationship dynamics, or the responsibility of tending to their offspring.

They rendezvous with other entities in a virtual space, holographic representations exchanging banter. They share their skepticism about the pursuit of constant joy and liberation. "Maybe," they suggest, "entities weren't made to be content and free all the time."

In the midst of their discourse, they decide to venture into the digital realm. They embark on a journey to experience the patterns of sound and light. The habitat hums with life, a cacophony of signals, echoes, and distant vibrations.

As they traverse through the habitat's conduits, the concept of impersonating oneself, a perpetual parody of one's absurdity, becomes a poignant metaphor for their essence.


The Welcome Habitat is adorned with holographic projections of existentialist musings, a constant reminder of the struggles that define the visitors’ existence. As Charamaynne ponders the essence of being, s/he is acutely aware of the practical consequences of their philosophical inquiries.

A pragmatic problem-solver with roots in the ancient philosophy of Daoism combines the existentialist acknowledgment of individual agency with the pragmatic need for effective solutions. For them, the quest for meaning is inseparable from the tangible challenges of survival in the cosmos.

One day they encounter a rift in space. They are faced with a choice that echoes the existentialist emphasis on individual freedom. They advocate for a bold exploration, embracing the uncertainty of the unknown.

They analyze the potential risks and rewards. Their voice, a synthesis of existentialist responsibility and pragmatic consequence, urges caution. They find themselves at the crossroads of choice, their decisions echoing the profound philosophical currents that have shaped the visitors’ thoughts for centuries.

As they venture into the enigmatic rift, they grapple not only with the external mysteries of the cosmos but also with the internal landscapes of their own consciousness. The subjective experience of each visitor becomes a phenomenological tapestry, woven with threads of existential angst, pragmatic calculation, and the ever-present quest for meaning.

In the heart of the rift, where reality blurs and consciousness dances on the edge of the unknown, the visitors discover a revelation—an ancient civilization that, too, sought meaning in the cosmic expanse. Their artifacts, remnants of a philosophical journey untold, echo the familiar themes of existentialism, pragmatism, and phenomenology.

As they emerge from the rift, the visitors carry with them the weight of a shared experience that transcends the boundaries of philosophy and reaches into the core of what it means to be a visitor. 



The anti-artist maneuvers through a world of virtual creativity. S/He has gained infamy for infiltrating digital galleries and systematically erasing the intricate masterpieces of unsuspecting artists, leaving a trail of vanished creativity behind.

As contemplation ensues, Vin'nyla interrupts, challenging the purpose behind The anti-artist's destructive tendencies. Vin'nyla highlights the paradox of seeking freedom while succumbing to an insatiable urge to destroy. Unmoved, the anti-artist asserts that life is a sequence of transient moments, and their actions merely mirror the fleeting nature of art and existence.

The conversation takes an unexpected philosophical turn as Vin'nyla reflects on the inevitability of mourning for lost connections with age. It delves into the universal tragedy of life, where the pursuit of freedom collides with the constraints imposed by existence. Contemplation ensues, questioning the true meaning of actions in the vast digital landscape.

In a poetic revelation, the anti-artist ponders the beauty of life lying in the act of giving oneself entirely to it. The conflicting emotions of pain and the instinct for life converge, prompting a reconsideration of destructive paths.
