Microstory 1660: Understanding the Trinary

For the most part, the residents of the Hypnopediaverse trinary system don’t think too hard about how that system works. They travel to another world in their dreams, and then deeper into yet another world, where time moves faster. There, they can commune with each other, and learn new skills, which can be brought into the real world later. Exactly how it works, and why it works, and why it doesn’t work unless they slip into that third world, is not relevant to most of them. They accept it and move on. Some are not so satisfied with this nonexplanation. They want to understand the physics of it, and find new ways of utilizing the power, if that is even possible. A few like-minded individuals came together, and formed an organization dedicated to this research. They did not have malevolent intentions, but they recognized the possibility that the dreamworlds could be weaponized in some way, or otherwise abused. Knowing about these risks only fueled their motivations. People criticized them for potentially letting those possibilities fall into the wrong hands, and perhaps it was best to just leave it alone, but really, there is no telling. It could just as easily happen on its own, and the world would end up defenseless. I won’t bore you with the details of what they learned during their research. Their primary objectives were to figure out if they could travel to the other worlds physically, and not just in their dreams, and whether they could transport resources between them. They never did figure that out, because bulk travel is so rare, but they learned a lot about the fundamentals of this branch of physics. As far as the general public goes, it didn’t really do them any good. They didn’t need any more resources, and most weren’t interested in understanding it, but it was probably best that someone explored these options.
