20130601, 12:34 – It stands to reason that a machine implementation of a process that’s ultimately a form of remote viewing would be as subject to interference as any other form of wireless telecommunication. The QAR rendering an astral projection is one of the many story elements that qualify ATC as occult sci-fi.

It’s worth noting that Dyluck isn’t performing garden-variety astral projection. The QAR is in some small part a mechanical implementation of James’ remote viewing capabilities (which have yet to be depicted on the page), and it’s quite likely that a projector who doesn’t vibe with MBO-2 would not be rendered by the hardware, though this won’t be evident until later in the story.

Also. Holy math I made it to Q3. May and June rent are being paid by illustration work – I was a busy beaver for the last couple of weeks and will be even busier this coming month, so it’s a good thing I have another page in the queue and three more ready to shade, as my work schedule, while self-set, is going to be cray-cray.
