New SF term: Unrealitivity

by on May.23, 2010, under General News

I was thinking about something recently, and a discussion on a mailing list provoked my mind to come up with a new term. “Unrealitivity” – A merger of “unreal” and “relativity” (as in Einstein’s theories of…). It is any sort of SF technology or phenomenon that allows for incredible speeds without regards for relativity, speed of light, acceleration forces, etc. without any sort of basis in other potential theories or at least a technical explanation – like warp drive, hyperspace, etc. For instance: “The nuclear waste dump that exploded on the dark side of the moon thrust it out of Earth’s orbit at unrealitivistic speeds across the universe…” Or, “The spaceship’s unrealitivity drive brought them to Tau Ceti in two days…”

A Google search at least seems to indicate that it is fairly unique, with only a handful of hits and nothings to indicate usage other than a mistyped word…

The end of Lost

Hopefully our calendar feature reminded you, but the finale of Lost is on at 9pm ET tonight – and I understand Europe is getting it around 5:00am BST, so you better get up real early…
