The visitors use software to help them recreate their hallucinations.

Just as a glitching computer will sometimes give us clues as to how the machine works, the strobe light causes glitches that might deepen their understanding of how visual perception works. 

"​I crashed this matrix with logic just last night." 

"I don’t get why you get to be the bad guy in every situation."

"I think.. maybe they're trying to get rid of my insistent logic."

S/He suggests to stay calm.

"Now they are working on a project introducing the elevation machine to the public. Out of curiosity, I agreed to try it out once more, with a light that pulsed at a lower frequency."

S/He hopes to inspire a new generation of visitors. 

S/He received the prescription.

Charamaynne listed Zak Qlikman to call in case of medical emergencies. 

"S/He had no next of kin?"

"No s/he didn't."


"I think s/he would've told me."

"Do you have any idea who killed them?"

"Everybody liked them."

"Mind if I tag along? Or we can continue in my office, if that's more convenient."

"That's fine."

"What do you do for a paycheck, anyway?"

"Computer software. Would you mind taking care of the car this morning?"

"Must make some decent bucks, huh?"

"I make a living."

This is Charamaynne's life.

S/He works and lives here. S/He is paid to be interested. 

"A lot of money involved."

"One of the perks of the job."

"This job has a whole lot of perks."

(A visitor comes in)

"Can I help you?"

"I spied something never seen before." 

"I want you to keep it. Somebody will ask for it. Remember, it's crucial that s/he receives it."

This discovery immediately raised red flags. It is a mysterious form of matter that interacts with gravity, but not with light. "It is bizarre, to say the least."

"I'm the detective."

"Thanks for coming down."

"Where is s/he?"

"Can I get you some coffee?"


"We found them in an alley. Looks like s/he ran into someone guy who wasn't just asking for a quarter. Carved them up like a ham. Took everything wallet, credit cards. Got a real kick out of it. What's your connection to them?"

"I worked with them for 6 years. S/He was my boss. My friend."

"Hey, cigarette?"

The curtain makes you think from two sides.

“The reason we can’t predict the outcome of a quantum measurement,” s/he explains, “is that we are missing information,” that is, hidden variables. Superdeterminism, s/he notes, gets rid of the measurement problem and nonlocality as well as randomness. Hidden variables determine in advance how physicists carry out the experiments; physicists might think they are choosing one option over another, but they aren’t. They call free will “logically incoherent nonsense.”

"The location is 37.981396, 23.693073." @supersportevent #supersport

The theoretical megastructure consumed all the energy.

But the download is complete. Link to simulation terminated.

"I see these signs every time I leave work."

" You could be home already."

"Never expected it could look anything like this."

"So what exactly do your people do here?"

"I don't think you would be interested."

"I'm paid to be interested. Computer research. I was onto a  whole new frontier. Very sensitive material. Not at liberty to discuss it."

On the second floor in the dormitory at the Welcome Habitat

"They say, 'Ignorance is bliss.' For the first time in my life, I agree. I wish I had never uncovered the awful truth. I know now. "

"I hope you enjoy your stay with us."

"Would you do me a favor?"

"You'd like to meet somebody?"

An alternative set of narratives,

epitomized by the works of Charamaynne, presents a deeply alarmed view of the near future. This catastrophist narrative emerges from the call to emphasize the Interstellarcene as a crisis and a rupture of the planetary system, marking a dangerous and unstable future trajectory that ontologies focused on ecological or technological control fail to recognize. The prospect of such a rupture makes nonsense of the optimism and hubris of advocacy of new rounds of enlightened interstellarcentrism. It highlights the difference between manageable risk and unmanageable and potential catastrophic uncertainty around tipping points in the planetary system. It rails against the “good Interstellarcene” narrative as a dangerously hubristic approach that diverts attention to the urgency and magnitude of the planetary environmental challenge.

A year later, the visitors solved the mystery: The galaxy, NGC 1052-DF2, was not 65 million light-years away, as originally believed. It's really only about 42 million light-years away, researchers reported March 14, 2019, in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. That change in distance completely alters the calculations for the galaxy's mass. Turns out, it's a pretty normal galaxy after all, and the universe (kind of) makes sense again. 

If the visitors all are down there,

hen the whales may know and be peaceful good neighbors with them. Maybe, like Charamaynne studies dolphin language, all the vistors start trying to communicate with whales, dolphins and other animal intelligences. 

"If you decide to let me in on your secret existence with a visit, please call ahead of time so I can brace myself for the honor of coffee, tea or so." says Charamaynne.

Their interaction code is "^ ZIP : {4 ~ ( Charamaynne ) } ZIP : COFFEE [ QUEEN park ]".

Of course, Deep Fake could produce this encounter, but it is accompanied by many identified witnesses with convincing testimonials. There is also some historical descriptions and many suggestive stories over centuries suggesting that the visitors have made the ocean areas their home. Maybe they came long ago from some planet from unknown light years away or are an inter-dimensional overlapping "string theory brane" - a multi-verse entry portal.
