While flipping through the help menus of the Lifepod 2300, Getch reveals some behind the scenes pop cultural infrastructure. Somebody lands in the co-pilot’s seat, and some absolutely crushing details.
What’s up with all of this talk about being fictional? Why does Orkin, Raptor, and Racket care about a person who doesn't exist? What sort of trouble has PanCom gotten us all into?

Veering drastically from the political programming of Occupy Radio, and Chaos Theory Radio, Getch, or David Geitgey Sierralupe, declares himself fictional. If you keep listening, you will find yourself becoming irresistibly fictional as well.
In the first chapter of Irresistible Fiction, spanning episodes 1-5, Getch takes you deep into the nothingness at the core of the atom. Along the way expect vague recriminations about Albert Einstein. Expect corporate pressure from the legal team of Orkin, Raptor, and Racket, International. But mostly expect bullshit -- unrepentant, multi-layered, multi-dimensional bullshit.
This is your chance to heed the call. Even though Getch is fictional, he needs your help. He's looking for his even more fictional friend, Norway Hansford.
Will you ignore this call for help, merely because it comes from somebody who doesn’t exist?
Are you the sort of person who discriminates against people who have the misfortune of being born fictional?
Test the limits of your perception, and possibly your compassion, with Irresistible Fiction, Chapter One: The Sub Atomic Chronicles.
Irresistible Fiction 5: Club Neutron
It’s a full moon Irresistible Fiction special, coming from a special place where the moonlight doesn’t shine. Getch makes some friends, and tries out the nightlife at Club Neutron.
Club Neutron, the last, best hope for some final chunk of matter, somewhere in the atom, turns out to be mostly illusions. Illusions, and maybe bad business decisions. While Getch talks quantum mechanics with Inga the bartender, the Incredible Quarks are on stage making things appear and disappear. With their magic act, the concept of anything solid in the universe survives on an Einsteinian technicality.
As Inga says: “It’s not a bad trick though. Everywhere you look isn’t there until you look there. You look somewhere else, and what was once there, stops being there anymore. It’s the Incredible Quarks. Always one step ahead of you.”
You might want to read up on quarks.
Quarks are randomly, appearing somethings way deep down inside the nucleus of the atom. Einstein says we can call their magic act "mass."

Irresistible Fiction 3: Subatomic Jet Pack
In which Getch’s dimension-hopping doppelganger visits an intergalactic quidditch match in order to point out that it just doesn’t matter. Orkin, Raptor, and Racket imposes its will. Plus, vague rumblings about Einstein letting us all down.
All of that, in just eleven minutes, and ten seconds.
Or, as Nad commented after listening: “I love the sound of your show. I wasn't sure if I was too high, or not high enough, for the subject matter.”
Regarding the previous episode, “Utter Bullshit,” Nad says, “ I felt like I was walking through the fog with someone on mushrooms.”
With reviews like that, you know you’re getting a quality podcast, dealing with important issues, delivered with a heaping pile of bullshit.
And, according to Mrs. Nad, you can also count on a touch of Nuclear Blue Balls.
But wait, there’s more, if you listen now, we guarantee you 100% more Quantum Bullshit!!
A tip of the hat to the Orkin, Raptor, and Racket legal team. You know you’re putting out important material when someone takes the time to slap a legal disclaimer on it.

Irresistible Fiction 2: Utter Bullshit
Almost a century ago, scientists searched to find the smallest particle of matter in the microverse. Instead, they found puzzles and funhouse reflections. Deep down inside the atom, things got strange, and even Albert Einstein tried to sweep it all under the rug.
But that strangeness at the core of the atom sat under that metaphorical rug, and waited.
Every once and awhile, we lifted the corner of the rug and picked out little bits of quantum strangeness that suited our needs. But most of it, we avoided as improbable, waiting for another Einstein to sort it all out for us.
Bullshit, my friends, is on the rise, and reaching historic levels.
Across the multiverse, it appears that all of those little bits of quantum strangeness have reached critical mass.
The pent up quantum strangeness appears to have begun to release itself in historic, multi-cosmic waves of bullshit.
There has been a surge in first, and second term Trump presidencies across an infinite number of worlds. In a dark, and frightening swath of the unending abyss, Trump has seized power in America as a warrior king, leading literal packs of wolves from Wall Street.
The infrastructure in place, to protect against the build-up of bullshit is old and weak. In a frightening array of worlds, the bullshit flood is topping walls that have stood solid for centuries.
If Trump is President in your world, know that you are currently experiencing historic levels of bullshit. Unfortunately, we can’t say for sure when you can hope to reach peak bullshit. Until bullshit levels return to normal, please use common sense as much a possible.
Eventually, we are afraid, the whole multi-cosmos will be awash in bullshit.
Then, and only then, will we be able to come to terms with what scared Albert Einstein. But, that’s for another episode.
In the meantime, a little uncertainty will be good for us all.

That’s Bill Murray, chanting at the end of this episode. The clip his from his role as a summer camp counselor who helps a boy come to terms with his terminal cancer. Murray won the best supporting actor Oscar in the 1979 tear-jerker, Meatball Stew.

The Datasphere plays a role in Being Fictional:
We would like to define “datasphere.” but it doesn’t look like anybody agrees on a definition:
The notional environment in which digital data is stored; especially the Internet viewed in this way. Also (Science Fiction): the space of virtual reality, cyberspace.
datasphere is an electronica/dance-based collective out of chicago, Illinois. Not some info technology, software or IT-based mumbo-jumbo. Or some name out of a silly science-fiction novel.
A play on the word "atmosphere," this refers to data that is transmitted via satellites.

Pre-Irresistible Fiction: Occam’s Razor
Still trying to understand what’s happening with the former Occupy the Media Podcast. I’m not willing to believe we are witnessing actual interdimensional communication. So, I’m considering other reasons involving collusion, trickery, and mind-f*ckery.
Occam’s Razor seems to be the best pathway to a solution.
“The most useful statement of the principle for scientists is
"when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better."
Occam’s Razor on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam%27s_razor
My two choices are: somehow, another version of me, in a different dimension, has perfected interdimensional communication; or, somebody is messing with me big time in this dimension. Until I get proof of the potential for interdimensional communication, I’m inclined to accept trickery from within our local dimension.
