I had been wondering about the absence of your incisive, right to the point
comments, and here they are! Thank you indeed. Much appreciated.
In my personal case, I don't know if expedience really guides my efforts.
Besides wanting to help Steve's challenge to become what I sincerely hope it
will become, I am mainly driven by the image that imposes itself on me once
the topic is revealed. I confess that I have not been able to resist till
now :-) Well... that may be called expedience too, after all... <grin>
As far as the stilted pods are concerned, I agree with you. I believe the
civilization shown did not last long (despite their titanium steel housing).
Beyond a certain threshold of expansion, the hive breaks down into
individual components which are much more vulnerable to ouside forces and
they go the way most utopias go.
