Terhaute Group Multinational Security Company backstory from “Edan”
Hey look I forgot about being nominated as one of Idaho’s Top 50 authors last year.
warrenellis: Easter Island (National Geographic)
Internet is captured by big $ spawning the Dystopian Era, when big gov & big corp, fully take power, pushing limited eating and capitalizing off replacing global tableware companies. Mini plates, mini cups, and mini food. Eating genmod meats, and limited mini veg. In gutless mini electric cars.
Populace lives in tiny apartments, while the rich live in surpluss economies, mansions, extra big plates and giant genmod food. Driving giant fuel cars.
The saving grace is open (but underground) education platforms allowing development of DIY home fusion for free energy, which toples power grid, and a confluence of DIY robotics, Urbanism, and even quantum mechanics.
“Mini spoon, live longer, eat less.”

Abberations and glitch are common to our digital experience. There is almost an analog layer that manifests itself in the zeros and ones. Yet, we march on, convincing ourselves that computing is reliable, linear, predictable and without foibles. To be trusted with our finances, our homes, our children, and our very lives.

Don’t diss my bro Einstein quite yet - nothing can surpass the speed of light in a vacuum, 300,000 km a second. However, light obviously does not always travel through a vacuum, and its speed varies depending on the medium through which it travels. For example, photons travel about 25 percent slower in water than in a vacuum. Fun fact: the slowest light has ever been recorded is about 17 meters per second. (Technically light has been brought to a complete stop, but this isn’t technically ‘moving.’)
In certain mediums, different objects can travel faster than light, including particles in a nuclear reactor. When particles travel faster than light in a certain medium, a blue glow arises - known as Cherenkov radiation. This can be thought of as the light equivalent of a sonic boom.
In order for Cherenkov radiation to be emitted, the particles passing through the medium traveling faster than light must be charged - because these charged particles polarize the molecules of the medium; water molecules, for example. Although first predicted by English polymath Oliver Heaviside around 1888, the effect is named after Russian physicist Pavel Alekseyevich Cherenkov, the 1958 Nobel Prize winner who was the first to study it thoroughly.
