Re: What-If 0044: "High Throw"

did NOT read any of this thread, just came to say 'F***ing epic.' I love how Randall cuts through the BS with grace. How high can a human throw something? Where is Voyager? Geez. Like, a gazillion giraffes- with a little imagination. As of today, the record for highest throw goes to the Voyager 1 la...

You've been talking for hours
You say, "Time will wash every tower to the sea,"
And now you've got this worry in your heart

Re: 1190: "Time"

What if we are creating time? What if time is a result of our continued contributions to its substance? What if Time is a reflection of this very thread?

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm the real heretic here, because I honestly think there was never an "age of the slow pixel". Slowly eroding the castle by time might have sounded logical on the ground of philosphy, but it'd have been pretty dumb (and an ass thing from Randall actually) too, as that'd have required too...

It's either another person, or some highly-sophisticated, as-yet-unseen sandcastle feature.


I don't think it's Cueball, the lines are much thicker than the lines that make Megan.

Re: 1190: "Time"

There was some speculation about a loop and another regarding algorithmically eroding the castle. Suppose: the castle's algorithmic erosion (near some end point) is used as the basis for frame 1. Running said algorithm to some number of units of time determined to yield a specific duration of frames...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Randall is a _____ing genius. I don't know if I'm more impressed by his ability to make the internets move to his time or my just-now discovery of Umwelt's true nature. Guess I'm on of the animals living happily in its own universe 'cos I just thought "huh, didn't think Randall was from the mid...

It takes time for two people to build something, it's an allegory for relationships and all the more poignant because you are all trying to rush it; some things can't be rushed.

I don't think you're supposed to figure out the maximum amount of time that could be displayed... I think that the picture is important; almost as much as the dialogue... Removing the picture could almost be a metaphor for any of man's impending dooms. Apophis recently passed by and we know that in ...
