I really like this. The use of footnotes and ambiguity combined with believable (and comprehensible!) technobabble is very well done. Also, manages to be surprisingly readable considering it's imitating an academic essay. Nice. +1
This is very interesting. I appreciate how it both develops the wider world and society built around the library while raising a whole lot of questions. In particular if there are 100,000+ copies/variants of Earth it opens up the possibility of performing large scale studies comparing the development of different worlds.
Rather eye-catching title there. However:
The primary problem I have found with all of them is that they come from a place not of exploration and discovery, but of scholarship and theory. Fascinating as Pia’s Tiered Construction theory, or Ala-Norn’s concept of Universal Reproduction, or Gizzo Hesh’s Reflected Library experiment may be, they come from a place of scholarship, not discovery.
The repetition of "scholarship" and "discovery" comes across as more than a little awkward here - could be more organically phrased?
Current theories point to its unusually strong connection to the Library, though they’re only growth rate
I have no idea what this final clause is saying.
