Here we are, finally ready to show you our comic as it was intended from the get-go! The aesthetic we were going for can come to light now that we have an artist in-house.

Antonio, our resident artist will be concepting and slowly building out the world we envisioned when we started Matterless.

Strongly influenced by the solarpunk aesthetic, we want to bring forth a version of the future that we can all be hopeful about together. If you like the visuals and Alice's new look, then try giving our Medium solarpunk article a read!

This week's comic has been inspired by a clip of Terence McKenna, and his 30-year-old clip from the first psychedelic trance party in Europe where the guests at a party were enabled to use cyberspace modules with glasses, gloves, and helmets.

“The future is a future of ultra-technology in a dimension that is split-off from what is called ‘the ordinary world,’” Mckenna. “The ordinary world – the natural world – is maintained like a botanical garden or a natural preserve, and then the human imagination, which is this titanic, Promethean force that is loose in our species – it is free in a virtual reality to create all of the castles of the imagination.

McKenna saw VR and AR as a means to revolutionize human interaction by finally allowing us to see ourselves as we truly are, understanding that this 'viral spaces' technology would be a type of telepathy readily available in the Metaverse.

I wonder, what alien and unpredictable beauty lies ahead for Matterless?

The amount of data in the world was estimated to be 44 zettabytes at the dawn of 2020. But, how much data is created every day? Frankly, there is no definitive answer to this question. Not even the megacorps of today can count the data as it is being created.

By 2025, the amount of data generated each day is expected to reach 463 exabytes globally.

By 2025, there will be 75 billion Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices in the world.

By 2030, nine out of every ten people aged six and above will be digitally active.

Who can say if that kind of activity is not causing an algorithmic type of life form to evolve?

This is what Alice has discovered... A new life form that responded to her. So let's see what happens next!

We are becoming more and more immersed in a lifestyle reliant on technology. Raw data is being churned out by daily interactions. Imagine looking at that binary dimension, growing every second, a web of intricate connections expanding.

It's almost a world of its own.

Funnily enough, the day this episode was completed is the same day the new Matrix trailer came out.

Remember the Matrix?

(Keanu looks haggard)

It's been 22 years since the first movie hit the theaters. And the message it carries is still as relevant as the day it came out. Reality, illusions, and awakening to the truth transcend sci-fi and point at one of the cornerstones of human experience.
