comics for September 20, 2006 – 09/20/2006
Why can’t she be one of those cool scientists?
Because “Introduction to Coolness” is a senior class.
Because, like Alex and Dan, she is still only a student.
While she is just as close-minded as Hermione in Harry Potter I have to give her some credit. Conspiracy Theorists, while being right about many things, often jump to conclusions too soon, based on too little evidence.
On that note, doesn’t he kind of resemble Harry?
This is a true example where fans of the paranormal are right… IN A WEB COMICS.
Yes, the paranormal believers might be right – but the scientists (rightly) won’t believe them without some objective evidence and a credible hypothesis that makes some testable predictions. She’s supposed to be a sceptic.
Alex: “So if you’re killed in Dreamland, do you die out here?”
Nicole: “The body cannot live without the mind.”
Nicole: “Okay, you really sounded like a brain-dead surfer dude just then. Instead of the more typical, everyday brain-dead behavior you’re usually exhibiting.”
Nicole: “… except in your case, Alex. You seem to survive without a brain.”
yea, no kidding. Matrix called and wants its story back.
On a sidenot, is the amulet sword made of the same material than can cut through anything? An analysis on its metal could be very interesting.
@Jimmy Zappa: This comic uses that one idea of injuries from dreams affecting your real body, not the story of the Matrix. This story is nothing like the matrix, the only similarity is the whole “Two worlds” thing. Even those two similarities are common to so many pre-matrix things and such minor background details that its not even unoriginal to use them
This story probably takes the whole “alternate reality, travel to a different world, what happens there happens here, and vice-versa” from the Ted Dekker trilogy Red, White, Black (not necessarily in that order). Ted Dekker is a Christian author, and all three books are in one, so check ‘em out. I bet that you’ll be able to find more than one similarity.
There is a fairly good chance that he did cut himself in his sleep with the necklace, assuming it is sharp enough to do so… and that it was said accident that made his mind think an attack had been landed on him when he felt it.
O’course she is in no position to start declaring that hypothesis as fact now, is she?
