Skint, unemployable and terminally bored – consider a backwater island UK citizen with few Real™ prospects, forced into roleplaying “Robert What” – self styled Freelance Postmodern Internet Theorist and Non (/Bad) Artist – busy procrastinating in the Research and Development of imaginary play state “Big Science.”
This informal alternative lifestyle sandbox, toolbox / social practice features superficial sci fi mythos – based on contentless, open fan source field study vaporware fragments – impressionistic ‘visual language’ code compiled with or via imagination.
Consider such scenes / scenarios / simulations / interventions / ruptures / intellectual catalysts – synthetic setups, virtual events, nonlinear actions amd occurrences – forming temporary, highly improvisational research performances and advanced scientific visualizations.
Example In-Scene Use

X: Oh, you know – “Big Science.”
Y: *blinks once* OK. How do you play?
X: Good question! Let’s find out.
Both ambivalent engine and enquiry mode – “Big Science” now partially manifests in this dimension as new age social media cult / free to play eSport set in ‘Near Future Now’ of global Ludocapitalist videogame spectacle; a giddy, hyperreal age of rogue precedents and kaleidoscopic, atemporal expression – emergent planetary scale meta-computation shockwave tapping the ‘very dark’ energy fabrics of space-time Beyond.
Unaffiliated fellow player Robert What has spent decades sitting alone in cold rented laboratories diving through terabytes of digital zombie pop trash as immaterial for vague ‘RND Projects’ – and now shares predictably oddball findings and mundane observations online.
