"We generally... don't really notice it." She shrugs. "There's no need to think about it much."

"I suppose it's something you could get used to..." Ze seems unhappy, though.

Permalink

"It's like-- I was about to make a comparison, but I don't actually know your limits. It's not even a thing you 'get used to,' it's just how things are. I'm sure there's someone out there who's really bothered, but otherwise it's just how things are."

"It seems strange to me, then."

Permalink

"Well, you seem pretty strange to me, so I guess we're even."

Permalink

That seems to amused zem. "I guess we are."

She steps into the car. "Is there anywhere you want to go first?"

Permalink

"I don't know where there is to go."

The car is interesting. Ze sits in it and definitely obeys physics doing so, but ze gives off an air of something indulging physics, rather than being bound to it.

Okay, that's a slightly off putting air, but she's not gonna mention it. "We could go somewhere where people are, or where you could learn things... does your world do food? We could do food, in that case."

Permalink

"I would like to learn things about your people. I have not had 'food' before."

Permalink

"Most things around here need to eat food to survive. People often like their food to be enjoyable to eat, too." Maybe not the best way of summarising food, but it's not like she's had much chance to think about how to explain food to someone from another dimension. 

"Learning things about us might be trickier. We generally don't have much reason to try, or in the cases where we do, it's often to other humans anyway. The library might have something on psychology--"

"Library?"

Permalink

Right. Alien from another dimension. Probably doesn't have libraries. "It's a place where you can borrow books for a short time." And because zie might not have encountered books. "Books are a way of storing information, using writing. ...do you have writing?"

Permalink

"We have representational art. Writing sounds interesting."

Permalink

"It's mostly used as a way of storing words so you don't have to remember them. It's useful, certainly, and some of it is interesting, though only as interesting as the information it's being used to store."

Permalink

"People don't do art with it?"

Permalink

"Oh, they do art with it all the time. Most of the written art is stories, but some people do art with the ways you can arrange words and write them."

Permalink

"Good. Art is a good use of an information medium."

Permalink

"What sort of art do your people have?"

Permalink

"All sorts. Music. Dance. Sculpture. Painting. Creation, of world or of life. Many more."

Permalink

"So, we have the first few of those. Creating worlds: not so much."

Permalink

"I would like to see your local art, perhaps."

Permalink

"A galley should be easy enough to find."

Google maps: find the thing.

Permalink

"A gallery?"

There's a small painter's gallery close, or an art museum a bit farther, and a textile museum in a slightly different direction, and a gallery of sculptures from this one personal collection over there...

Permalink

"They're collections of art. Sometimes themed, sometimes not."
