CO-PLANAR EXTENSION SURFACES AND DIGITAL OSMOSIS

Abstract: A hive structure of adiabatic cells arranged contiguously with coplanar extension surfaces was filled with air and stored in a novel cross-platform DRAM configuration of next-generation Transmeta Crusoe chips with Pentium parallel processors interleaved on a "magic" I/O bus. A viscous solution of computer-animated nanoprobes of Borg extraction was introduced into the ventilation system by laser pipette while Pink Floyd's The Wall played on DVD with surroundsound. All transitions were checked continuously for signs of digital osmosis or what Ratnert (1996) has called "virtual metaflatulence," i.e. when the original structure merges with the solution vectors in a way that renders external conditions meaningless on the quantum level. A control group of Bryn Mawr students confined in a nearby Multi-User Dimension were given placebos then asked to respond to beta automata.
