#plurality

got so fucked up for a moment when i saw the news on the tv and realized i didn't know who the current president was and it took me maybe five, ten minutes to remember who without looking it up

so i'm MAYBE someone from before 2016 if i literally couldn't remember that guy (...yes, i know the guy before him, just took me a bit to remember. damn)



just finished reading both 17776 and 20020 on account of i was following @the-future-of-football and... wow. wow

this is such a plural piece of writing.


i mean, it's not- the characters themselves aren't explicitly plural. the main characters are space probes. but there's something that hits me hard about the way they act. they're so much like us.

you're all up there in space. seemingly you shouldn't even be people. you're so distant from everyone else in reality. but you exist. and you hold a very special and unique type of connection to everyone else up in space too

and everyone down on earth accepts you too and loves you

being someone who just woke up and yet already knows a lot of information... being a new person... that juxtaposition of sort of already having siblings younger than you and yet more knowledgeable... just

everything about this collective story.

plurality.
