It would take someone like her to think about it. Depends on funeral practices. Might be preserved samples in medical records. Even a drop of blood would do it.

Coyoty October 23, 2023 at 4:47 am 1 month ago The best comparison for her: She’s an Addams. Frankie D. October 23, 2023 at 5:56 am 1 month ago We’ve not seen her love anyone enough for her to be an Addams… Shen Hibiki October 24, 2023 at 8:44 pm 1 month ago We have seen that she loves herself more than enough… Mindsword October 23, 2023 at 8:15 am 1 month ago With a population that small, you’d also want to capture all the living, get their genetic data and put all of them in stasis until you’re ready to begin. Use that time to research the plague, determine transmission, then cure the survivors one at a time while removing them from stasis. The ones that can still breed should do so, but the non-fertile ones should then teach the culture to the newly born children so the civilization lives as well. Nomi October 23, 2023 at 9:46 am 1 month ago Now that’s creepy! But also efficient. Seymour Joseph October 23, 2023 at 1:38 pm 1 month ago She should sit down and read Seveneves by Neal Stephenson. Fnordius October 24, 2023 at 3:27 pm 1 month ago I consider that novel cruel and unusual punishment. Steven October 24, 2023 at 6:54 pm 1 month ago It was a beeeg disappointment. Two books, the first a very long setup for a thought experiment that’s the second. After Anathem I was expecting much much more. Pete Rogan October 23, 2023 at 4:51 pm 1 month ago At least Choan hasn’t considered the possibility of using radiation or chemicals to induce the needed mutations, the majority of them detrimental or lethal, to provide the genetic diversity required to keep natural selection from simply eliminating the race through a change of environment none of them are genetically equipped to survive. But I’m sure it’ll come to her later. Along with her desire to experiment with the genome to see what else could come out of it. Say, a race of pure Choans. Wouldn’t that be an improvement? Now I go lie down. The bourbon isn’t helping. Pete Rogan October 23, 2023 at 4:53 pm 1 month ago And from panel 6, I can’t figure out how Choan’s neck can turn that way. The bourbon isn’t helping THAT either. TB October 23, 2023 at 5:42 pm 1 month ago Would an aquatic species use toilets? Arboreal animals are also very difficult to train this way. Tel October 23, 2023 at 8:14 pm 1 month ago Is it bad that upon reading the 2nd panel my mind immediately ended up in the same place as Choan in the 3rd panel? It’s not creepy, it’s just sound reasoning, right? Right? The other obvious source would be whatever tissue samples are stored in whatever’s left of the planet’s laboratories. There would probably still be some, eg, egg/sperm samples gathering crud in the back of some lab freezer somewhere. Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad October 24, 2023 at 9:50 am 1 month ago I really want this whole house, or maybe even the entire city, to turn out to be a giant Potty Bot Transformer named Pooptimus Prime.
