Scientific basis of telepathyEdit
Telepathy amplifying devices: The search for Kalid.
Hyperlight Drives Edit
A hyperlight drive that works by moving space through the ship, instead of the ship through space. Think of a person with a gun and a heavy lead tube, imagine that the maximum speed of the bullet is one millimeter per hour and imagine a person wants the bullet to reach the other side of the tube. Now, would it be better to use a tiny amount of strength, press the trigger and wait ages until the bullet reached the other side or using an enormous amount of strength and moving the tube, one centimeter per second, until the bullet reached the other side? (Of course that only would work in very soft sci fi) --Nonimportant 04:17, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
- Any hyper speed SciFi is soft.Even better is if both systems are used in conjunction.On the note of hyper speed,I had an idea of space being like a spring,and so if the vessel travelled within the spring instead of along it,it could still travel sub light speed while travelling pretty fastUser:Serprex 04:38, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
- Oh, I know that (Hence the of course), but maybe the guy that would try to use that idea doesn't.--Nonimportant 13:02, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
- Not necessarily. Just because we "know" FTL travel isn't possible now, doesn't mean it will never be. 500 years ago a lot of people "knew" that the Earth was flat. But you're right, it's not hard sci fi in the strictest sense.
Parallel universes Edit
A topic invented by some scientists like David Deutsch. Check him at Wikipedia and the many worlds interpretation. I am so lazy to explain that to you... David 21:04, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I know, a different world for every choice and all that. It only works if the setting doesn't follow a strictly deterministic philosophy, in which everything, from thoughts to the Universe, being just the result of a series of physical and chemical reactions. In other words, a place where choices are illusion (which, from the looks of how psychology is advancing, seems to be the case of the real world). --Nonimportant 01:33, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
- The Matrix and Thirteenth floor movie ideas. Imagine that, in an alternate present, computer scientists find a way for true virtual reality; one that is almost indistinguishable from the real world. Users start connecting to that system and the technology is improving... up to the point that AI entities become conscious.
- Maybe in the same or other story, scientists discover that this world is a computer simulation. And they also find a way for us to "unplug" and get to our parent universe, the one which is simulating us.
What if the dinosaurs were not fully extinct? Maybe they became conscious, developed science and escaped to another planet. And they may come back to Earth at some time in the future, to regain what is "theirs".
- A time travel story in which the characters do not necessarily travel to the past or the future. They travel to the world without time, the Eternity.
- A story about people in Edna, Texas experiencing paranormal activities in every part of the city called A Haunting in Texas. poop
'Never trust a left handed squid...' Edit
- One idea suggested in terms of Stardust is to have an alien species with a chirally reversed biochemistry :)
- There are a countless other idea for radically different aliens...
