I obviously did not know what I was talking about in the last post.

The trouble with precognition is ALL THE EFFING MATH.

I can't keep my timeline straight.


  1. It's just all the "Event X happened over a course of Y months, and Event Z happened Σ months later. But from Reference Point Ω, all these events happened Γ years ago. Unless you consider it from Reference Point Λ, because from that reference point, none of this has even happened yet."

    Marcus experiences time differently than everyone else, so I'm trying to write the chapter from his point-of-view as sort of a homage to the Watchmen chapter from Dr. Manhattan's point-of-view. He was the naked blue guy with the giant blue penis from the movie if you haven't read the comic. It's not that Dr. Manhattan could just see future, his consciousness was spread equally throughout his timeline. Like we're all points in space-time traveling into the future at a mostly constant rate, but Marcus and Dr. Manhattan are more like lines. If that makes sense.

  2. That totally makes sense. I like that concept. Maybe you should keep track of it in excel or something.

    Dr. Manhattan reminded me of Alex. Not so much in the blueness... but in the "I'm on a different level of conciousness"-ness.

  3. Oh, God. Excel. Don't talk to me about Excel.

    Dr. Manhattan and Alex have something else in common too, no? Something in the pantalones region, no?

  4. Ha, pantalones.

  5. Huge Blue Cock. Both of them. Enormous. Blue. I can't believe I didn't notice that similarity before....

    Graph Paper? Sticky Notes? Tattoos?
