The person on the left is a third gen advanced human. Because their planet is smaller than Earth, about the size of Mars, the planet cooled sooner and life started much earlier, by millions of years. Like us, they are a 3 dimensional being that sees in 2d.
The being on the right is a second gen "Ancient". The 2nd gen ancients have technology that allows them to see in 3d. (see the 4D world as 3D projections)
The first generation ancients are 4th dimensional beings. They can move at will through space and time. Because of this, we can not see them entirely or communicate with them.

I forgot to mention, the dark spot in the last frame is the continent that Liam and crew is on now. You can see what it looks like at present in the "Maps" tab at top of page, also on page 10.

heheh, originally that last line was going to be empirical research, but we observe sounded better.

Fascinating! You have a vivid imagination Dizz, one day you must tell me your theory of how the Universe began and what it is. I have my own feeble theory but Hawking doesn't think much of it.

13.8 billion years ago all the matter in the universe was contained in a single point smaller than an atom. Then God said let there be light and in an instant the universe was filled with light.
Stephan Hawking doesn't believe in God because "Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for God to make the universe in." (yes Hawking ended a sentence with a preposition) He also said "...it was an event that could not have been caused or created by anyone or anything." But wouldn’t "anything" include physical laws as well? How, then, could the law of gravity cause the universe to create itself as Hawking claims?
I happen to believe in both God and the big bang.

Even before the Zoro-Abrahamic monotheistic deity was in conceptualization, various polytheistic religions claimed that "primordials" came from "nothingness". It was not until the whole "and then there was light" junk that people started considering spontaneity in the void, an inherently truly chaotic nature that could create that which wasn't from that which could not be.

If we believe this to be the case, the universe did not need to be created by a primordial - it had just as much of a chance to spontaneously appear as a primordial would have. It's possible that the universe is not simply a program or tool made by a higher mind but rather a self-evolving and non-conscious entity that operates by the same kind of survival adaptation that we do.

The idea that the universe continues to patch itself over is not at all strange, as everything from stellar life cycles to a negative universe to even fractals all show a universe without true stability that is in constant change. It is just as possible that there were multiple points that burst at the same "instance" and may continue to do so in primordial pseudo-temporality...as it is possible that a primordial being made a horribly drawn painting that we just happen to be living in.

but Dizz, where did God come from...he just popped outta nowhere? That defies all physical laws. At least Hawking (and me) have some kind of physical explanation for the beginning of the Universe. One day I will publish a paper and I'll become almost as famous a physicist as I am a cartoonist!

And that single point smaller than an atom that contained all the matter of the universe? Where did it come from? Hawking has never been able to answer that one.

Thanks! You just made my day.

I had an important decision to make on this page. In my original story there was a third intelligent species, an aquatic species, that you don't see until the 2nd book, but I've decided to move right to the 3rd part of the trilogy after this.

Love this graphic novel. I too believe in both God and the big bang. No matter how far you go back, no matter what science enables us to explain as we learn, SOMEONE had to have created the first domino and gave it the finger tap.

This part is really interesting. I think that the strongest aspect of your comic is the cosmology/world-building. You have done a great job with realistic cultures, deep history, world background, universe laws, etc. You have based it enough on reality to make it seem true to life, like it could really happen, but veered off enough from reality to make it cool and unique and interesting.

Thanks. Writing about actual exoplanets is risky because we're learning so much, so fast. When I started this comic we believed that Geliese 667C had 3 potentially habitable planets, c, f and e.
Since then we have learned that f and e probably don't even exist and c is not likely to be habitable. Luckily, Celebus is fictional.
