Good story. Convincing, consistent style and tone. The soundscape further imbues this scene with atmospheric oxides, metallic and otherwise. Imagination is a cognitive facility; combined with real world observation and practice, it can save us from dull compliance, and replication of deluded privilege .

Thank you for the comments, I probably won't do more like this for a while because of the effort involved lol... this one has been on the burner for a long while. But it relates to stuff I will be talking about later on self-assembly so I felt the need to get it out.

Please continue.

I love HPR for its diversity. This type of show sounds like it was a lot of work, but it’s fantastic. If you were to do a future show of this type or continue the story, lower the music a bit. It was difficult to hear in some places. I also would love some more backstory on why the x86 (certain die size) chips were destroyed. I know you said a neutron star caused it, and I’m not looking for something super scientific, I just like more story. Thanks again for the show.
