Is it just me, or has the forum seemed a little slow (posting wise) the last few days?
Well, here is another thing to think about. We’ve all seen Star Wars, and Star Treck, and Star Gate (…too many star’s), etc… etc… etc… These are all Sci-Fi films, but where do they fit in on the chronological timeline of relaity. Would Star Wars be in the future, or in an alternate reality? What about the two worlds of Star Gate? Obviously present day earth is one, but when and where is the other?
This leads to thought in something else. On Star Wars, they are pretty ‘high-tech’, but it’s a different kind’ve tech. I was wondering, what would it be like, and where would we be today, had reaseach and development gone another route? For instance, what if the transister as we think of it today hadn’t been first discovered as electronic, but chemical or optic. Or what if instead of working our way up through metal alloys to the materials we have today, we discovered some other process to make metal stronger than today, a very long time ago? How would this affect society today? Or instead of architecture and skyscrapers, what if we built structures strait into the earth. Like cities out of mountains and sub-terrainian worlds. What if, instead of the electrical lightbuld, be used some type of other luminescent method?
This would make a good theme for a blender pic. Some of dickies stuff reminds me of this, such as the underground fairy-like girl.
