My reading of the article seems to suggest that the existence of Unruh radiation is controversial. Might synchrotron radiation be present? Although that’s caused by accelerated charged particles. I d...

I think I’ve come across a discrepancy in the descriptions of void bubbles/void motes which are being used for ship propulsion. The article about the Halo Drive at https://www.orionsarm.com/eg-artic...

Another path for reproduction would be in the virtual, where resource limitations are minimal. Many more virtual than embodied people can and do exist in OA Y11K. Many (most? all?) virtuals would have...

Post: RE: Possible Revision of Dates for S2-S4

I’d propose that there will be developments with a range of difficulty at any given S level. Some will be trivially easy, though still impossible for a being at a lower level. Similarly, some things w...

The term “gravity wave” (a fluid dynamics term) is misused in several locations where “gravitational wave” (a space-time term) is appropriate. Some examples are in https://www.orionsarm.com/eg-artic...

Post: RE: Possible Revision of Dates for S2-S4

Cross-referencing seems fine to me. It’s just that including the whole text of an article seems a bit redundant, especially if a link to the full article is there, too.

Oops. Also note the incorrect use of gravity terminology. “Gravity waves” are effects in fluid dynamics: the fluctuations of surfaces or of an interface between two fluids, as on the surface of a lake...

A similar control of animals is already being tested. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_control_animal In Y11K it would be trivial, perhaps even commonplace to control more than one body, not ...

It seems to me that someone who has their own pod/ship might have friends with access to more powerful ones and could quickly overtake the escapees. Somehow that problem might need to be be prevented.
