Once again, we’re sent to Norway. I hope we don’t see that plastic doll vampire again.
If clues lead to another tanning studio we’ll know at once. I wonder, though, what that mysterious material was.
That alien light could probably have told us, but how? There are so many questions unanswered from last time.
Not that I want to go back and get answers. My broken arm is only just healed.
The upside of that is I’ve had lots of time to plan a new project.
What we know as magic is usually illusions and tricks.
I think it was Arthur C. Clarke who said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indestinguishable from magic.
This life-sucking technology sucked the life out of people. They seemed to age when exposed to that alien light.
The near-invisible machines must have absorbed light. Jan Thomas built collected some sort of energy in bottles. Could this be real ectoplasma? Manifested life-force? As with many other forms of energy, magic can be described as being an electromagnetic wave, which means that each quantum (quantity of energy) has a specific frequency, and the energy of this quantum is directly proportional to the frequency of the wave.
Magic is supposed to do many things. Transform an object’s properties so it could completely become something else, make things levitate, send messages through the wind or open gates between worlds. Now, take levitation. A cup sits on a desk, and remains there because of an exchange of energy between itself and the…. well, the planet, really. An energy we name gravitons is exchanged between the two objects, and they are pulled towards each other. The same happens with electromagnetism. Electrons are exchanged when something is charged opposite. Tearing matter apart results in a release of electromagnetic energy – which is why a nuclear bomb also acts as an EMP.
Therefore, magic should be detectable by electromagnetic sensors. The frequencies may vary and magic will still be a vast mystery even after this, but this correlates to my work in such a magnificent matter.
The origami memetic material exhibition is on hold, due to technical problems. I’ve got to solve that multiple similar geometry problem.
I suspect the solution lies in separating the material in layers with each layer being insulated against the others and containing each its own shape. This might require stronger current.
I don’t like snow. I don’t like northern lights. I think Agent Sommerfeldt might be a robot.
