"All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules and chance; the same description may be applied to the best, most elegant and both intellectually and aesthetically satisfying games."
― Iain M Banks The Player of Games
Jex: Hi is it okay if I ask you some questions for a website about the neighbourhood?
S4brr: Absolutely. It’ll be good to have a record of us in our Pre - Transgoblinist form.
J: Err what?
S: We aim to live beyond our biological bodies— for our souls to be transferred as data into the save files of our favorite games.
J: Right... kind of… nuts. What are your favorite games?
S: Gaming is more than a way of life, it is life itself. They provide a system for us to exist within, but the physical ergonomics is a limitation. VR is not enough, we need to BECOME VR.
J: Okay but you didn’t answer my question at all… You guys seem to watch far too much Matrix or some shit.
S: Are you kidding? Not only is that impossible, but that film is all about escaping the Matrix. We’re trying to break in.
