Re: 1190: "Time"

Ah. Iterative Loopist. I may be able to conform to that theory. It actually was a bit of a relief that newpix 1000 was not the last one. I think many Loopists don't want it to loop. They fear that it will loop. I don't fear, so much as I am curious as to the different Iterations. I want to ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I have decided to simply live in the newpix. Whatever Loopist leanings I had in the past, I gave up after the The Great Loopist Tease of 997-1000. I'm still an Iterative Loopist. What you call the Tease, I call the Second Iteration. In that one, they didn't build anything. Think of the Iterations l...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Ok, this is really simple to understand: It's the same, but different, meaning that it has looped, even though it hasn't, and that Time will continue, or it won't, in exactly the same way as it had before, except that it will now be different, but in a different manner than if it had looped and end...
