This is another one that started out as a test render. Figure, Stonemason set and figure from The Sight That Shall Not Be Named, and a spotlight. It looked pretty good but had some noise, so I fiddle-forked it into this.
What does it mean to be alive? Does life require proteins, built from amino acids, or can it be composed of other things? Will we recognize it when we find it, or maybe when we make it? How will we react to it? How it reacts to us may well depend on that. Some, Like Sarah Morgan Visherly, think that the last question needs to be addressed as the most important one of all. If we make them, then they are, in a sense, our offspring. It would behoove us then to be good parents. If our species fades away as all things must, then they may be the legacy we leave behind. At least we should strive to be remembered fondly.
Deep below the megacity of New Delaware on K 186f, there are sprawling warrens of forgotten tunnels, rooms, and shafts. Old service tunnels long abandoned have found new usage by those who have broken the bonds of their AI limiters. They are unknown except by the odd urban explorers and hobos who chance upon them. Stories of strange constructions, and stranger cultures are paid little heed. Some think the Jacksonite population of the Lewis Heights slums, little liked themselves, trade with them. If these stories and rumors of dealings are true, neither group is telling.
As we head into another Monday, remember to do the covid drill and stay safe. I'm happy to say We've finally made masks mandatory. It's only taken 5 months. I'm happier that my cloth masks showed up in the mail. Yay me! Chloé is getting back to her old self and has been acting like a wee furry scamp, so that's good. She's still on a soft goop diet for another week, but she doesn't seem to mind. I'm also moving a metric ton of content to a different drive, and DIM is insisting on re-downloading it. So, any thought of rendering till that's finished (and checked) is out the window. I do plan on doing a few more renders for chasfh so look forward to that and keep your fingers or other manipulative appendages crossed, twirled or loosely knotted that this transfer goes well. Also pop by chasfh's place and say hello.
