I am fine with pre- 130 AT history being super blurry. If we date events in the next century, we are going to need to revise it a lot. I think we got the most flexibility with anything off-earth sinc...

    Thread: Proposed editing of the Arcadia article
Post: RE: Proposed editing of the Arcadia article

I agree with Steve Bowers.  Talking about the 75% who did not settle on Arcadia would help to shift away from the planet-centric bias that was talked about in other threads.  However, given that this...

Quick question:  Was Wallace supposed to have been a superturing (modosophant) or a hyperturing (transapient) when e terraformed Arcadia?  It is mentioned both ways in the article. "Artificial Intel...
