Oh no, there went my night, lol. I couldn't resist. :oops:

The mover looks kind of pants. :oops: It was the first thing I did so I hadn't gotten re-used to my tablet yet, whoops. XD; Grass is pretty bad too.

Alright everyone, get cracking and post your results too. :twisted:

I hate being negative (what?! Well I do! in limited circumstances…) but Vola looks to be the same height as Wai on the cover. I mean if that cover was the first time seeing any of this, I'd think they were both kids, while Texto is a towering giant.

And thats a nice coloring job Nai.

As you can see, their heights are quite different; Virtue/Texto is rather a towering giant (at 7' 3" no less!).

There is a reason for everyone being so tall (Kaye is slightly taller than I, and I am 5' 11"), and that goes back to the physics of Tryslmaistan. Linovection places an effective premium on lateral space, and gives a pass to vertical growth - height does not imply weight or mass. It is cheaper, biologically and mechanically, to grow vertically, and more expensive to grow outward. Wide means weight, which means strength and energy to oppose the pull of that weight. To expand vertically costs nothing. Nothing at all.

Life, therefore, makes use of this to various extent, including the transplanted life from earth.

Surface area, though, is a separate issue, and works as on earth, and there are other constraints, of course, as well, which keep Tryslmaistan from being a universe of nothing but giants. For example, without truly rigid biological structures (the equivalent of, say, calcium, in Tryslmaistan, is a rubbery crystal, which means bones can only get so large before they begin to bend, and thus become useless, that sort of thing), because of the issues involving metabolism, and more, humans won't grow to become 50 foot tall skinny monsters.

But, they are a bit taller than us, after many a generation.

I think I've got a wrong tool for calculate meter into feet.
Jennifer, you are 5.11 feet?
That's 1,56 meter, with that you are very very small.
And Virtue are 7.3?
He's 2,22 m, the drawing shows him big, but not that big
However the 2 meter are 6.56 and the 1 meter is 3.26, that's very close what my calculator says.
I can't believe that you are so small. Herrje.

It's 5'11" (5 feet, 11 inches) not 5.11 feet -- that is to say, 5 11/12 or 5.917 feet. It's about 1.8 meters.

I did at first 5 feet into meter, - then 11 inches into centimeter.
Then I've got the same result as you have, 1,80 meter.
This makes more sense, because of the photos I've seen of Jennifer.
Finally, I need two steps to calculate.
In the metric system it's all in one. My fault.

I thought that was ... ahem ... a male thing. You know I mean ... mistaking 0.11 feet for 11 inches?

It was a german mistake.
Using the metric system is easy
1 meter is = 10 decimeter = 100 centimeter = 1000 millimeter.

1.80 m, 1 meter and 80 centimeter is easy to read, you don't have to think of two different systems.

That's why space probes are slipped away in space, they were build at two companies, one had feet and inches, the other used the metric system.

No male problem, except you say the americans are so male and macho that they don't want to handle a simple system for length.
:evil: :twisted:

Not exactly ... it's more a matter of what some males feel they need to measure ... ahem ...

And the character picture that doesn't canonically align with the progression of the story (I can't remember specific examples of this, but I think a lot of coloring books based on Disney movies managed to do so)! Kaye's already on and in her H-hold and clothes?

It is extraordinarily hard to fail at that maze. Besides the simplicity of the path through the trees, the Atma probe is clearly floating way above the forest, so it would be technically correct to just draw a straight line from the mover to Pho's house. :dead:

Awesome stuff!

The only other option would be to fold the page over so that the mover is right next to the shack (ie. closing the gap through a higher dimension). Hey, it's mover technology, it could work!

I have no LCD that is elastic, and then I should have for the demonstration purposes to push a pencil through it.
No way!
It's better I put two monitors front by front together, I've got two computers here which are able to connnect to the internet.
And so it's indeed also a different universe example.
