THE PAPERVERSE



  
A CREATION OF HAND INKYTECH, THE PAPERVERSE IS A SO-CALLED ‘CONCEPT-FARM’. MEMETICALLY-ENGINEERED FOR MAXIMUM IMAGINATIVE CROP YIELD, THE PAPERVERSE IS AN ONGOING 2-DIMENSIONAL NARRATIVE UNIVERSE BASED ON TRADITIONAL AMERICAN COMIC BOOK FICTION - THESE TYPE OF  ‘SUPER-HERO’ STORIES WERE FOUND TO BE LEAST RESISTANT TO REAL SCIENCE CONSIDERATIONS AND THEREFORE MORE FERTILE GROUND FOR DEVELOPMENT OF IMAGINARY TECHNOLOGIES. IMPOSSIBLE MACHINERY CAN BE IMPLANTED WITHIN THESE PERMANENTLY ROLLING ‘CONTINUITIES’, NOURISHED INTO POSSIBILITY AND FINALLY  HARVESTED INTO  3-D EXISTENCE TO ENHANCE THE ONGOING OPERATIONS OF THE HAND.

  OUTLANDISH TECHNOLOGIES AND WEAPONS ARE ‘WRITTEN IN’ TO THE ‘STORY’, TESTED BY THE ‘CHARACTERS’ IN LIVING SCENARIOS MAINTAINED AND FARMED BY EXPERTS. A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF RETRIEVED CONCEPTS ARE TOO FRAIL TO SURVIVE THE RETURN FROM THE PRESSURES OF 2-D, OF COURSE, AND DISINTEGRATE UPON DECOMPRESSION INTO THREE DIMENSIONS BUT THIS PROBLEM IS NOW BEING ATTENDED TO AS THE NARRATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF ‘INVULNERABLE’ WEAPONS AND TECHNOLOGY ACCELERATES AND YIELDS SPECTACULAR DURABLE RESULTS.  SOME FASCINATING AND BIZARRE ARTEFACTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN RECOVERED FROM THE CRUSHING FATHOMS OF THE PAPERVERSE BUT THIS ASPECT OF HAND WORK HAS ALWAYS BEEN REGARDED AS SLIGHTLY FRIVOLOUS AND CONTROVERSIAL BY THE HIGHER ECHELONS OF THE ORGANISATION AND REMAINS SO TO THIS VERY DAY.
