The Physics of Galaga
February 12, 2020

It is a common misconception that Galaga is merely a 1981 arcade game consisting of a swarm of alien crafts attacking a lone starship. I am here to tell you that not only is this incorrect, but that the truth is so much more exciting.

A Legend Investigated: What Is A Wiggy?
December 6, 2019

In my time at the Selig House so far and stepping into the spaces beyond, I have encountered some strange entities and heard some odd stories. My investigations into the creatures associated with the space have brought me to look into a giant raven, a mastodon skeleton, and more.

Extremely high-end ultrasonic waves cause minute tears in space-time. These “portals” are usually blink-and-you’ll-miss-them affairs. Most only exist in a sub-microscopic level . . . but sometimes the waves will resonate with each other and cause a much larger “eddy” in spacetime to open.

The Forked Universe Theory

My name is Mae Gantz, and I’m a xenolinguistics researcher here to kick off the Society of Peripheral Studies blog with some thoughts on… you guessed it, xenolinguistics, also known as the study of alien language!

The Pyramid and the Anomaly: Chaos and Order in the House of Eternal Return
July 25, 2019

Hailing from a cosmic facility known to us as “The Pyramid,” the Charter are the self-appointed guardians of Order, purportedly for the entire universe/multiverse.
