Both can make the familiar seem alien and the unknown seem known by giving us a different perspective. Myth has looked at humans from the top of Mount Olympus, the walls of Troy, and the eyes of the Trickster Spheres of the Ryk-tar. Disregarding Kern’s threat, Miss Adams secretly opens an innocuous valve, which allows the head to speak and confess.

Readings will consist chiefly of short stories and novels, most of them relatively short, by a wide variety of authors Mountaintops and Valleys, Book 3 (The Peaks at the Edge of the World). Even in the vacuum of space their are stray particles that interact with the ships matter, thus even if invisible, a cloaking device is essentially useless if one can simply scan those particles., JAH , On the odd occasion an alien can't speak English and learns to speak it, in what seems like no time at all they don't even speak broken English or struggle with words., TH , Using weapons which make bright bursts of light when fired while in a firefight with poor light, no one seems to get concerned they would ordinarily be blinded by their own weapon Thrice Sounds the Call to Battle (Freedom's Common Ground).
