Science fiction is usually based on a healthy amount of truth, mixed in with an abundant supply of imagination, extrapolation, humor, and the like, so science friction will follow suit.
The Dredd Blog System has mused about some solidly incredible mysteries being discovered in the cosmos around us, such as The Great Hexagon, the virgin mother lizard which does not copulate but instead replicates, and The Cosmic Bubble.
Discussing the latter, the story of The Origin of MOMCOM (focusing on the economist sub-class of the MOMCOM realm) began:
My theory is that the bubble is a very ancient runaway economic system developed by the ancestors of our current bankster species, before some of them migrated to our planet.(Economists - Aliens From Cygnus?). When the ancestors of MOMCOM first arrived in our solar system, they settled on the planet Mulantis, which once existed between Mars and Jupiter, but they destroyed it, then had to move on.
They are constantly talking about bubbles, constantly making them, constantly trying to keep them from popping by putting more and more "bubble stuff" into them.
Once most of the debris from the explosive destruction of Mulantis had bombarded the planets in our solar system, abundantly cratering them and their moons, then had settled down, the ancestors of MOMCOM returned to this solar system and settled in on the Earth.
Once in awhile debris (for example: asteroids, comets, the renegrade groups orbiting Jupiter and Saturn), that had been thrown far and wide into our solar system when Mulantis exploded, would cause great destruction on the Earth, but eventually it settled down to the current phase of relatively few dangerous chunks of Mulantis still flying around out there.
Some of the microbes from Cygnus and Mulantis survived through all of that destruction (as did the ancestors of MOMCOM who were once human-like, by morphing into beings that do not have corporeal bodies) but who are now only able to influence species that still have corporeal bodies.
Some of that ancestor influence is seen by reading some of the scientific literature which teaches that humans must morph into machines, or religious literature which teaches that humans must morph into beings without corporeal bodies.
Religionists have a theory for the origin of the toxins of power that talk about evil beings without corporeal bodies, while scientists look for quantum elements in the mind somewhere.
We have wondered about the extent of the toxins of power, and how they replicate.
Think about it, why is our civilization headed for destruction by its very way of life, why is a portion of our civilization criminally insane in that sense?
MOMCOM seems so alien to this planet.
The ancestors of MOMCOM must have created the toxins of power long ago when malfunctions occurred during their morph, and those toxins still animate MOMCOM today.
That's the "troof of troofiness" nation.
