Okay, so loop16 has been answering our questions. Recently, they told us about their friends.
A gek named Polo.
And a Korvax, called Nada.
The only people who befriend those two, are travellers. They don’t seem to have much time for even their own kind.
Through these conversations with Loop16, we learn that something bad happened. Something unexpected. Something not originally part of the simulation, or at least unknown to it, appeared.
Whatever happened… When loop16 died. They did not regenerate like all travellers do…
When a traveller dies, they regenerate. When you regenerate, you are generation X, where X is the number of deaths you’ve experienced (or it may be number of regenerations, can’t remember if starting life counts as one).
Something was born into the simulation, whatever it was actually killed loop16, no regeneration for them. But why?
I think this is what we are trying to solve.
The Atlas foundation recovered the psyche of LOOP16 and is in the process of fully restoring them. They took a risk in inviting us to interact with Loop16 via browser based config.
Through this we gleemed what may have been the final moment for LOOP16, polos faith is undetermined, but nada may die here.
At first I thought this was from Polos point of view, but its definitely LOOP16’s account of events, although it only says “I told nada to leave”, the next sentence says “i told them what we already know”, as if to imply both were in the room, and the sentence prior mentions hearing the screams of their “FRIENDS”, the ones loop16 just told to leave, though you learn this after the fact due to how its written.
“We are not alone, for every soul is many. EVEN IN THE FACE OF SIXTEEN, we must declare that we lived.”
I think this is loop16 saying that, even though they can regenerate, and have done so 16 times, they still LIVED, their lives are not made less important because of it.
So I think, we are being designated #g-17 on our atlas pass because, we are trying to either figure out why this particular traveller, codenamed loop16, did not regenerate to generation 17, or we are being forced into LOOP17’s version of the universe (remember at the moment, we as travellers are isolated, we populate the same universe but on a different plane) to find out, what happened.
And I think whatever that is, will be because of the fourth race.
I’m not really good at structuring these things so apologies if that could have been explained better,
