didn’t get it
every horrible book, any half-finished book, ever written, goes to phix. i imagine the same goes for screenplays, songs, poetry, maybe even film.
so, for every one “romeo and juliet” or “the iliad”, there are thousands, if not millions, of “other people are different, and thats bad”, or “g.i. joe, the romance novel”
“g.i. joe, the romance novel”
Oh, what a horrific idea. Phix definitely has my sympathies…
Imagine all the FANFICS she gets. You know those infamous stories of people caring WAY TOO MUCH about which people get together so they make their own stories so that the people THEY want to see together get together?Phix gets ALL OF THOSE too!
one just hopes they are delivered in a human fashion… or that she has a hidden computer system with zetabyte upon zetabyte of stuff… Or some special SENSE to know when something is shitty or worth reading. That does bring the question if it is things that only exist in physical paper format… though, abstractly/technically, the magnetic imprint on a disk is a solid format that, like some language written in a special ink, or special language, it can be read…b ut you need the right skills and tools… Then there is the question if it is only books and screenplays… what about notes passed in elementary school… what if a book was only THOUGHT up… it would leave a physical trail in the neurons… *shrugs*
Wait, if she doesn’t reset, does that mean she gets copies of books that existed even when the time resets ?
Bear in mind that things don’t repeat exactly, so the 56 versions of all the books written since the machine was activated would be subtly different. With no way to know which is better.
but what about all the things that go unfinished, or get lost which far exceed anything shakespeare, homer or plato and the like have ever written. Worldshattering ideas which get left unfinished because the thinker dies, loses his train of thought or thinks it’s not worth the time. That seems much worse to me than all the millions of shitty fanfics she gets.
She still gets them. This was forgotten and lost by its author – Jin – and she has it. The rest of the world, for better or worse, won’t see it. But she gets it.
