I'd like to play, but I can't access the website. How do I do that?

I think you're in the wrong thread. Are you having trouble downloading Star Control 2 or getting on IRC for net melee?

I have had the same basic idea of Orz "Many bubbles" as Omne35 - especially when they something along the lines of  being one with many fingers and Orz being just Orz , otherwise it wouldn't be at all .

Arilou's "jumping in front" I think referres to time travel to the past , and Arilou mention of things changed in Earth' past .

When IDF dwellers speak of *TIME* i thought of current time , if take into concideration the changes in history that have shifted reallity to adjacent dimention . Like adjacent page in a book , rather than another book altogether (That would be *SPACE*)

One thing i really didn't understand , is why Orz do not like speaking of Androsynth , if what i understand from Arilou is correct , if Orz would explain , Humans will get closer to understanding IDF and therefore would become succeptable to Orz and become food source (that is what i understand happened to the clones) . Unless Orz fear competition from another entities at their dimention(s) .

The Orz are a single entity not individuals. If you stick your fingers through a sheet of paper they look like separate living objects because you can't see where they are connected. I assume the Orz are the same.

yes I think this is very correct and interesting.

This is just a thought, but I have another *many bubbles* theory. Couldn't the Orz be calling us *many bubbles* because we are multicellular? It seems to me that the true Orz (i.e., the force behind the *fingers*) are likely some form of sentient energy. The notion that the Orz we know of are but *fingers* of some greater power suggests that said power appears to be able to exist across multiple spectrums of existence simultaneously. To me, this suggests that the Orz are not "flesh and blood" creatures, but something else. Now, what this else is "made of" is open to debate, but, just maybe, *energy* would be our own "best-fit" for describing the Orz.

I know, I know, this is all just idle speculation, but there are no easy answers when *fingers* begin to punch through to our region of space from *below*.

Yeah, this was what I thought it meant at first also. However, I think the "individual beings" explanation makes more sense.
