Researchers have noted that collectives use the principles of seed crystals and atomic crystalline structure as the basis for their computing hubs. It is hypothesized that auxons grow critical infrastructure whenever possible to minimize energetic…

A Journeyman is a remnant of a collective long gone, it wanders in perpetuity to find fledgling collectives. They must be painfully aware that millennia of work—of accomplishment, toil and failure—resides only within their memory. When they encounter…

One of the smaller varieties of semi-autonomous eight limbed robots. The attendants range from three to nine centimeters in height. They are typically found in and around areas whether other robots congregate and can be seen making modifications and…

Finally, once the atomic skeleton of the protein is established, the surface of the protein can be generated based on our knowledge of the electrical charges of the fitted amino acids. In this model, lighter areas represent positive charges, while…

Drifters wander the landscape, pursuing the mandates of their original collective erratically. We can surmise that a useful error has allowed them to persist where other members of their collectives have instead perished. However, since drifters no…

A large (20cm wide) collector typical of non-terrestrial collectives.

An attendant and particle computer begin the trek to the top of a myd to visit the Loyalist that resides at the peak.

Auxons use seed crystals to grow the information and data clusters that form their libraries. In addition to storing the cumulative knowledge of the collective, information clusters also house critical instructions for how to engage with the…

The exposed particle computer reflexively engages with a compatible collector that has wandered close enough.

In the absence of substantive narrative purpose or meaning an Auxon may hide, shut down, or otherwise preserve resources until such a time that action in the external world becomes necessary. Supplying the appropriate interrupt sequence will call…

Due to the uncertainty principle, it is not possible to precisely measure both the momentum and position of a particle simultaneously. Yet, this missing information is essential to write an equation that will ultimately determine a protein’s…

Upon first forming the anomaly, Orbs worked with engineer class auxons to evaluate the resulting space. Of particular importance was establishing the strengths of the physical constants by iteratively evaluating multiple competing models against…

Bosley_22.JPG
An observer sifting through a crystal trial looking for suitable crystals. A compression gradient has created crystals of varying size.

Bosley_06.JPG
An attendant attempting to interpret an interference pattern. Each dot in the pattern is left by an X-ray that was reflected upon striking electrons within the crystal lattice.

The initial Orb that established the Anomaly was eventually able to enter the pocket of space-time itself. Here it established itself to supervise work and make calculations that would otherwise be intractable.
Within the Anomaly, collectors can be…

Collectors are very similar to their attendant counterparts, but a collector can reach as tall as thirty centimeters whereas an attendant is rarely larger than eight or nine. The collector is thought to be essentially a descendant of autonomous…

Attendants carrying completed idea-elements via sub-surface route.

Loyalists retain the memory of the original codes and do their best to run the calculations as intended. They are not deterred by those who evolve around them. They are dutiful, archaic machines that live in relative isolation, seeking only to…

Bosley_18.JPG
The auxons now have a rough shape that approximates the actual structure of the target protein. Piece by piece, they scour the model for shapes that look like they might contain a specific amino acid. With knowledge of both the protein sequence and…
