to be continued… A one-shot I’ve been working on for the past month or so, here’s the colored prologue;;;;
THIS IS REALLY GOOD PLEASE CONTINUE IT I WANT TO DRAW FANART OH MY GOD
Which of these three horizontal lines is the longest?
You probably said the middle one, but it’s a trick question: they’re all the same length. The arrows added to the ends affect your perception of the overall line length even though I’m asking you about exact measurements.
If I asked you to mark the midpoint of the third line, the one that looks like an arrow, you’d probably end up putting it right of center despite already being aware of the optical illusion. The arrowhead on the left overshadows that section of the line, and makes it appear shorter because the eye responds to the open end of the arrowhead as an implied line, so you end up registering it as somewhat separate from the portion of the line that doesn’t have anything overlapping it. Additionally, the arrow that serves as the tail on the right side widens the overall shape and draws the eye in that direction even though it’s not the section I’m asking you to consider.
Think this is bad? Wait until you hit more complex forms like the human body.
[Warning: this explanation is very image-heavy.]
MY GIRLFRIEND IS FUCKING INSANE
No it would be instantaneous and then your body would float around those big colorful nebulas and you could get to other galaxies and maybe become part of a moon or get incinerated in a star or fall into a black hole.
You could become part of an asteroid and impact on a moon and your microscopic dust remains are scattered all over the crater.
You could become part of a star and undergo nuclear fission and turn into hydrogen and your body is a tiny fraction of the process of the star and you make light for the universe and then the star ages and your atoms get turned into iron and then the star goes supernova and you’re spewed across the universe as space dust.
You could land of a kind-of habitable planet and your DNA survives as you start to decompose and in a few million years the primitive life forms of your body become science’s greatest mystery for humankind.
You could be found by an alien civilization who’s also wondering ‘are we alone in the universe’ and suddenly they know they’re not because woah processed materials and tools and crazy-developed processing centers woah and then in a couple thousand years they make first contact because of the space-travelling cultural revolution your corpse prompted in their society and the humans of the future go ‘how did you get all these spaceships and junk’ and they reverently pull out your body and you are interred with great fanfare and people make you statues and holidays and stuff.
Your body could end up literally anywhere in the universe and you’d be the first human there because who said you had to be alive huh?
