To be fair, it was Hobbes. Our monocular friend is absolutely correct. I've the philosophical manuscripts that Mr. Watterson collected, but really, he was merely the collector. It's not like he put the words in their mouths...

Holy heck I was right!

I guess everyone sees a mess of worldships between galaxies and leaves due to extreme paranoia and FOMO and joins the extra-galatic civilization out there in difficult to shoot at space?


But I guess why send everything out there and not just mind clones like Petey and the Toughs plan to do?

Well, the mind copies are sitting in a teensy probe without enough size or power for lifesupport.
It isn't going to be something that can sustain itself very long when your scale of travel time is millions of years.
It is also being sent there by the power of the core generator, which nobody else has ever had.

Only the fact that it will be aimed at and arrive at a worldship in a short amount of time makes it worth sending.
To actually get where the worldships are headed, via STL travel, will take a worldship.

Perhaps once it is understood where they are trying to go, then Petey can budget another (or even the first) probe to go there directly.

Maybe I'm an optimist but I figured the world ship operators would take on the mind clones before the probe ran out of power. I mean, the All Star had how much memory left?

Given the other stuff we know has occurred I think it's a big assumption to say that no one has ever had a core generator before, unless I missed something. I'd believe that many civilizations have had that before.

Everyone hiding in the dark, including from each other. :/

If these are all independently hiding worldships, then they all independently decided to hide in the same tiny slice of space.

I don't think these are hiding from each other, I think this is a single "migration" of worldships. Possibly from a different extinction cycle.

We know that previous civilizations were throwing stars at each other, using DMEs as engines to forge worlds, and building galactic scale telescopes. Petey's core generator seems tame in comparison.

The destruction of the galaxy with the core generator wasnt an accident though, it was by design. I dont think anyone living in the galaxy would have designed it that way on purpose.

Again, based on the existence of old tech that seems to be beyond Petey's capabilities (his telescope isnt even the largest ever made and it is stretching his energy budget to create), I don't see a reason to believe there's anything unique about the current core generator.

With all the gravity manipulation and the sheer amounts of energy involved, I'm surprised that nobody's opened a hole in our "false" vacuum..

Actually, most vacuums spill out dust when there is a hole torn in them.
The larger the vacuum that is broken, the bigger the bang it makes and the more burning dust will be spread around.
