    So she isn't calculating shit after all!?!
    How would a copy of her mind be useful to the court in the new world where she wouldn't see anything at all???
    I give up.

      The comic says "the court can chart a new map," so clearly it's not charted yet.

      So the court wants to use ether to bring people that can retroactively create ether by thinking it's there to a place without ether because they will bring a person they've turned into a device that will use ether to fully map the new world that doesn't have ether and oh no I've gone cross-eyed

        last page she said the Court has already made a predictive model based on her abilities that presumably isn't reliant on the ether. They're not bringing her along. They haven't used it to map the new world because they aren't yet in the new world.

    So Annie survived, and now everything that changed because of that is obscured by the ether water? and her survival eventually led to Loup which led to the Court getting attacked, so now the entire Court is obscured? Is that it? Hey, can James knock up Indra?

    Every single resolution in this comic is just one long laborious slog through a monologue.

    So in an less-than-subtle metaphor, the new world will be dry, boring, and lacking in wonder or discovery. I'm guessing that when we eventually meet the Court's leaders, we're gonna find out that they are nothing like the original founders, since these douchebags clearly are not actually scientists.

      I mean or you can see it as being liberated from a looming horror than no one can know or account for.
      Determinism is the natural state of the universe. Something moving across causality is anomalous. The court is right to return us to providence.

        Determinism is bullshit. That's just not how atoms work. The sheer number of naturally occurring forces that are constantly pushing and pulling on every scrap of matter makes it impossible to predict future events with 100% accuracy. Omega, being of the nouveau Court, seems to either not realize, or actively reject, that the only reason she was able to do that is because the ether made her belief that she could manifest into reality.

          Determinism is not prediction. Your handler shouldn't let you talk about these sorts of topics. The comic is the comic and determinism is determinism. Pump those IQ points and come back to me.

              What do you mean no argument. You conflated determinism with prediction. That's just entirely wrong.

                Omega's predictions are explictly based on the idea of determinism. Now you're just trying to gaslight me.

                I feel sorry for you. You are clearly mentally lacking. The discussion of prediction can be predicated on determinism but the discussion of determinism has nothing to do with the notion of prediction.

          lol wat
          the existence of quantum phenomena does not preclude determinism
          > The sheer number of naturally occurring forces that are constantly pushing and pulling on every scrap of matter makes it impossible to predict future events with 100% accuracy
          I might have given you too much credit by assuming you meant quantum phenomena. The number of variables isn't really an issue in terms of whether something is deterministic. Three-body (and beyond) problems aren't unsolvable, there's just no easy general solution.

    What the frick is she "predicting"? The present?

      no you dense frick. if before she could predict where a train would go PLUS details down to the content of each passengers bag, she can now only predict the future location of the train. everything else is uncertain.

        So she can see the future, but can't see the future.

          I can predict that an apple I throw into the air will most likely fall to the ground, but not exactly where it will land on the ground.

    I feel like these threads are often inhabited by people that embody this image. I really don't understand why, but man everything from the "JONES IN SPACE ISN'T REALISTIC" to the AI argument in the last thread is just peak wankery.
