Episode description Edit
On the nearly abandoned mining station of Privign, the Beloved Dust continue to search for their comrades (and the hostile agent from the New Earth Hegemony.) Signet and Beloved Ivy member Acre* Seven discuss personal history, while Fourteen Fifteen meets someone from their own recent past. But when Tender Sky is confronted with challenges, she isn't looking backwards. Instead, she strives towards a future no one could predict.

ASTRONOMICAL OBJECTS: PLANETS: Acre
A largely forested planet in the White Frame sector, Acre became second home to the Divine Potency in their later years. While performing a routine energy siphon from the system’s star in order to power terraforming efforts of another planet in the system, Potency (or their excerpt) made a fatal error, leading the star to slip into a nova-state. Though the Divine could have left intact, it instead kept the exploding star's force contained long enough for evacuation efforts to begin. Contemporary thinkers are divided on this decision—commonly called the Potency Problem. While many scholars object to the Divine’s choice to stay behind (citing its responsibility to the fleet and its believers), in recent years, the “tautological position” of the algorithm Weyerbach Zwei has gained great popularity.

Like you said, the author doesn't think change happens quickly. But he definitely thinks it's necessary. He puts down all these words about how important it is to, quote, "overcome the evening phantoms that scare us away from true development."[note 1] The act of living well, he says, is not in fearing the crash but in turning collision into commencement.
And, I don't know, I'm not a philosopher, or a soldier, or a doctor, or a, what's he call them? Strati? I'm probably not one of those. But it just, it doesn't seem as easy as he makes it seem. Just look at the Beloved Dust. Signet is haunted by echoes of a history she barely knows. Fourteen Fifteen is literally losing every memory they have, and that's a tragedy, not a step forward. Tender Sky is, she's right at the brink of something incredible, but that's built on her past.
Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I just miss the cycle. Maybe I miss the simplicity, the safety of Crystal Palace. It's just that, out here, I don't feel like we need to worry about evening phantoms. There are plenty in the daytime.
