Seanachai Quote

"Do you really think there are no larger answers to the small ones we can supply? Miguel, we know there are answers for everything. Unfortunately, we know very few of them." (Alexis Paninian to Mitchell Campion following a 4 minute teleportation from Paxton, Ohio to 3XNorth, 3YEast and 150Z off the Coast of Spain, circa 5/28 & 3 weeks, OSB airdate 4/7/1959).

The Pookeepsietomeway Telescope

Shortly after I first arrived in the hemisverse I discoved a *telescope that I hoped to sell to an unsuspecting tourist.  It worked only to magnify stills; an elaborate slide show projector in an archival shell.  When cleaning out an old trunk I noticed it again.  I decided to take it apart, pull out the mechanisms and fix it.  The fixing part was not so easy.  After an entire day of looking for spare parts and code to make it work, I finally finished it close to midnight.  The viewer can actually see the stars and near planets through the scope.  A photo is attached that was taken not 30 minutes prior to the posting of this entry.

Since there is a complete story that goes with the scope, and I plan to add it here, I only wanted to add that I ran into an old friend of mine today.  He came to see me last year, but didn't stay.  He simply couldn't get comfortable.  Now he was back, but this time more eager than ever to participate in whatever our little group of storytellers were willing to whittle.

A former cavern dweller like myself, his name is Ty Udein.  He keeps a record of his life here.  The Second Road.

From time to time I expect our paths will cross again, because he rented a room from Ms. Ghennyn, who lives in the old house she inherited.  After warning him it was a spooky old place, that grows spookier every day, he went there to see Ms. Ghennyn.  A few hours later he called to say that he was moving in furniture to the 2nd floor apartment.  I never said a word to him about the letter I received from Matt Dutton.  I don't think they were on friendly terms when Matt left the cavern.  He will likely want to avoid any meetings with Mr. Monk

More about the Dutton Poohkeepsietomeway Telescope
Dr. Mercutio Dutton's Telescope

Dr. Dutton's Telescope was found by explorer Ruby during her recent trip to Poohkeepsietomeway. Poohkeepsietomeway is a muesum that has seen it'be better day, but stil archives some of the most notable treasures in all of sub-creation.  Ruby worried about moving the scope, and her right to do so. She is, for the most part, a preservationist. Once a museum curator, she knows the worth of a good museum. Old museum cronies assured her the museum members would appreciate the relocation of some of its treasures, because the muesum could be imploded anyday to make way for the Pookeepsiemeway International Parkway and Nascar Exhibit.

The original Dutton scope (circa 1878) will continue to be housed in the Worlds of Learning Observatory, but replicas (limited to 1,500) will be sold in the Exploratorium, if anyone is interested in having the priceless steam punkish scope, click the landmark below and go there. The price is reasonable and more scope viewmaster packages are coming (librarians at the museum are boxing them up and sending them into the world everyday).

Authenticity Confirmed by the AIW Open Me Project and the Society of Virtual Perservation Artitists the 31 day of July, 2009.
