As physicists are closing in on the particle described as the fundamental building block in our understanding of the Universe, Telcosystems show a far less conclusive particle theory; one that describes a digital world that is unstable and multimodal by nature, only revealing itself through bits and pieces traveling at superluminal velocity. At these speeds even the slightest fluctuation or disturbance unleashes a cascade of shapeshifting sono-optical movements, constantly challenging and redefining the rules by which this pattern-defying universe is pulled from stasis into turbulent chaos.
