It is discovered that Earth actually is flat.
Tranquility Base is in fact a giant, artificial hemisphere, surrounded by countless concentric spherical shell-shaped compartments.
Each compartment contains a structure of some kind, and it is suspected that there are many unknown structures beneath the surface of the planet.
As the planet is run by a computer, the designers of Tranquility Base never had the chance to determine their purpose.
In the center of the sphere is a circular area with a giant television set, which plays a continuously looped message by a human voice.
As the human population migrates to the surface of the planet, the voice on the television suddenly says that the population has been informed that they can now leave the sphere.
The sound of this message causes the people of Tranquility Base to panic, and many jump from the area.
They fly off into the planet’s atmosphere and are unable to return to their compartments.
Eventually, a number of these survivors find a structure that resembles a chair and sit in it.
They then find themselves in the sphere again, where they remain for some time before falling to their deaths.
The television voice says that this event was an accident, and apologizes for any distress it caused.
The game ends with a narration by the narrator saying that the story was not supposed to be an uplifting tale, but rather a cautionary tale of how much humans are willing to sacrifice to achieve their goals.
“Beyond the Infinite” uses two different screens: the top screen depicts a non-interactive video, with text in a scrolling display on the bottom half.
The left half of the screen displays the current time and date, while the right half displays the current weather conditions.
If the player has a television set, the bottom half of the screen displays a standard television broadcast.
The left half of the display shows the weather forecast for that day, while the right half shows the temperature and the wind conditions.
The game is set in 1999, and the voice of the narrator says that in the previous year, a large number of people worldwide were seriously ill, and that there was no apparent cause.
It is not explained why this illness occurred.
There are several sound samples during the game: the sound of a television set, a record player, and a bell.
The game also features a full-motion video sequence at the beginning, showing a human mother and child flying to Tranquility Base, and then falling to their deaths.
The sound and the scene show that Tranquility Base is not spherical, and that there are large circles inside the shell.
The game is a “text adventure” using ASCII graphics and characters, and is written in the 1980s style of the adventure game genre.
The narrator, who is never named, introduces himself as a scientist, and explains that he was hired by the company that designed Tranquility Base to “inspect its workings.”
He then explains that Tranquility Base is actually a gigantic computer, and that the people of Earth
Some people discovered that Earth is flat. They are confident it is true. Others are not. That is all.
This same CNN headline says Trump is trying to ‘undermine the scientific method.’ Really? No, I think he’s trying to undermine CNN’s editorial policy.
Funny, CNN doesn’t seem to like the scientific method much, does it?
If this was the kind of editorial policy CNN wanted, it wouldn’t have a pre-existing condition that a woman should not become president of the United States, and that climate change is a hoax.
The word “hoax” is a biased, pejorative term that CNN and liberals use to dismiss the scientific consensus that human-caused climate change is happening. If we can’t call a man a hoax, we should not call a president a hoax.
A few minutes ago, CNN announced that:
For the third year in a row, the United States continues to rank near the bottom of the world in government spending on research and development.
It goes on to say:
The report, published in the journal Nature, found that by 2025, the U.S. will fall from 4th to 20th in research and development spending among the world’s major economies.
You know what else will happen? The United States will fall in the world. That’s an undeniable, provable fact. That’s a reality.
Are we to wait until 2030 to come to grips with the fact that we’re falling behind? And will the people and the leaders of this country not consider that a crisis?
And do they not see that it is precisely in times like these that the most crucial investments must be made in science, engineering, technology, and medicine?
The United States is one of the world’s most innovative nations, but we can’t afford to fall behind in the long term.
And we must ask ourselves: what does “responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars” mean when that government is spending money on research and development?
I would like to ask the author of this editorial why he would even bother to write such a thing.
It’s probably the kind of thing he would write if he wasn’t too busy to do his job.
And it’s the kind of thing he might say if he wasn’t too busy to care.
It is sad that anyone who is paid to write for CNN would be so incompetent. It is sad that someone who is paid to write for CNN would be so stupid.
The author of this editorial should have a serious discussion with his editors about how to be a better journalist, how to show a little more dignity.
