Panel two looks like the Heisenbergsche Unschärferealation.
cough cough.

(I couldn't resist...
Panel 2 is so nicely unsharp, I was forced to say this)

Hm, is it only me or do these towers remind also you others for...
...forget it...

Hmm. Is this Floaty Buttcover era or something beyond? Hopefully they don't hit something (important).

Eh? Care to elaborate? :? I can't find any pictures on Google.

Oh, well, they do now.
Thanks, Anna. :P ;]

Ah, I see what you mean ... Well, I must say, I for one never anticipated that the Far Post-Singularity would be such a ... um ... virile era.

Ooops, wrong written
so you couldn't find it
Heisenberg'sche Unschärferelation
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heisenberg ... ferelation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncertainty_principle

Unschärfe...
Also a photographic term
a nonsense with playing words, the picture isn't sharp

Schärfentiefe
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sch%C3%A4rfentiefe
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depth_of_field


And with Heisenberg etc., - I do joke around with all these "pseudo" scientific explanations here.

Oh my, ... I hate to explain my jokes...

Yes, I am playing more and more with photographic techniques, represented in my art. I think it cool.

I removed the text; Stephen suggested it was superfluous and detracted from the image, I agreed.

The... virility... of the towers of the far future of Tryslmaistan is due to the physics there. Building vertically weighs less, and is more stable, than building horizontally; the tower is the ideal shape for any structure in this cosmos. Thus five kilometer high breadstick towers make more sense than wide sprawling constructions. Why domes as the tip? Shrinking cross-section combined with the intrinsic strength of the dome shape. It only makes sense.

The ideal building in Tryslmaistan is a big dildo. Can't be helped. I didn't set out for this to be so, but... that's how it turned out.

Sometimes that is the price of following basic assumptions to logical conclusions. Dildo towers.

I'm not saying that isn't awesome, though. I mean... dildo towers.

Plus, Trys has no wind to knock them over.

Plus, smoothly-curving dome-shapes appear to be a Jellese stylistic tendency.

I assume that some sort of external camera has activated, permitting a view of the outside world?

Considering what has been said of the Krawlini I can almost imagine all movers through design having a remote probe that is launched just to show the potential last moments of the escape boat to the riders.

At the very least it surely has crash-detection sensors and can see that they're near a bunch of stuff.

The mover escape control panel has a touchscreen. Screens can be used for more than text.

If you look at the front of the sphere, there are many ports which could be video lenses.
