Omni Magazine: Pseudoscience Then and Now
For every science-fiction fan who remembers Omni magazine as the first place they encountered the work of Ursula K. Le Guin, William Gibson, or George R. R. Martin, there is another former reader who remembers the increasing number of pages dedicated to UFOs, non-peer reviewed medical recommendations, and paranormal discoveries.
The Lodestar Academy
Don't fight for what you believe is right- stay spineless. All Ravegeers are soft and pathetic. Your parents must feel ashamed of who you’ve become.
M3GAN and OMNI-scient AI Predictions

The Book of Love: What to Expect When Mercury Goes Retrograde in Capricorn New Years 22/23
What Does "Mercury Retrograde" Mean? A retrograde planet is one that, from the vantage point of earth, appears to be moving in the opposite direction. From an astrological perspective, this means that the energies represented by the planet are directed "backwards" or "inward." Retrograde periods are often riddled with delays and disruption, but there's no need to panic. It is just a time for reflection rather than for taking action. These periods can actually be loaded with magic & synchronicity, causing things from the past to return to us, whether this be people, situations, memories we thought we had forgotten about or lessons that we're getting a second chance to learn after having failed the first time around.Kaitlyn Maura
A Hound in the Walls
The outside world was unknown to her, but she could see a glimpse of it through the window in his room. Shifting sunlight filtered through murky, soup-like gas clouds. The multitudinous colors created a mesmerizing effect over the blasted, lifeless earth. It was beautiful in a way, but Zori knew if she took one step out there she would choke on those colors.Bex Jordan
Fiction Is a Driver of the Future
There are many reasons why writers write. Some have a story that simply has to be told, others like to create worlds that can be shaped and molded by their own thoughts and desires. Regardless of the reason, the end product is not just ink on paper or words on a screen; the final product is a blueprint that can be used as inspiration for more ideas and a driver of innovation and technology that can be developed further at some point in the future.
Don’t forget how Starlink helped Ukraine since the beginning of the War
At the start of the Ukraine-Russia war, I recall how Elon quickly supported Ukraine by shipping Starlink within two days. This after a viral tweet from Ukraine's vice prime minister asking Elon for Starlink support which arrived two days later. This greatly helped Ukraine's military internet communications after these were targeted by Russia.Gia SantosPublished 6 months ago in Futurism
Star Wars Andor Is Upon Us
While there still isn't a lot that we know about the series, it's been described as a taught spy thriller, in space. From what we saw in Star Wars: Rogue One, Diego Luna brings a compelling character to life in the form of the rebellious Cassian Andor. As the series got a second season before we even knew it was headed to a fall premiere, this should be a Star Wars adventure that will leave fans both happy and wanting more.Jason Ray Morton
The Metaverse Kinda Sucks, Bro.
Imagine a world where you wake up in your penthouse apartment, 90 stories above the ground. It’s homely, modern, and warm against the neon blues that paint the city outside.Justin Boyette

My 998 love lives
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. Lying in this bathtub floating in space, I smell burnt flesh and see my bones fusing to the molten lava, my arteries and veins dissolving into metal as I shriek in horror. Help me, Yrsan! I can't feel my torso, my jaw ruptures, my nose is disintegrating, my eyes catch visions of the void before sinking, and I am deliquescing and becoming one with the metal.
Why I’ll Never Return To Physical Books
I never enjoyed reading. I used to go to the library, buy a book, get the dopamine rush of spending money and place the book on my desk, where it stand for weeks. It was constantly haunting me because I was just staring at it, touching and looking through pages, but never actually reading it.Ionutz Kazaku
