How Time FRIES!
Now Playing: Help Poly Solve the Mystery of Astral Geode! Clue #112
(NEW to this blog? You can start this Mystery from DAY ONE New clues are added to PolyBlog each day, Monday-Friday)

Well THAT was freaky.
One minute I'm standing in the undergound ruins of a ancient alien city and the next nanosecond...

ok, technically I'm STILL standing in the same ruins but...something is DEFINITELY wrong! What happened?!

Wait - I remember now - TIMMY was stuck between 2D & 3D. I was going to turn one of YOU readers 2D to try to un-stick Timmy.

Then time just went CRAZY! How much time passed? Shooting Stars! My Time Circuits must be FRIED...My internal clock says it's September 2nd, but it should be September 15th.

What time is it?

Wait...what YEAR is it?!

________________________oOOo________________________

Man, I was hoping to avoid this but...

Get ready, ASTRAL.

I'm SENDING IN one of the readers ...YES, from Earth!


No...REALLY! This can WORK!

I'll hit the Earthling with the Besmou Magic Wand - that'll turn him (Her? I can never tell with these exotic species...) that'll turn the Earther two-dimensional.

While he's 2D, he can give "TIMMY" a little nudge to unstick him. Then they'll both be coming through the HOLOBLOG and straight towards YOU.

I'd do this myself but...well...I'm not programmed to SELF-DESTRUCT.

haha...just a little ROBOT HUMOR...

Holy !!!
"TIMMY" is...well...he's not quite 2D OR 3D.


He's in some kind of UNNATURAL FLUX DIMENION. He's stuck...INSIDE the HOLOBLOG!

kinda cool lookin' though....

sorry.

Timmy - can you hear me?

Oh hex, tentacles doesn't have EARS!

Break on Through...to the Astral Side
Now Playing: Help Poly-256 solve the Mystery of Astral Geode! Clue #108
(NEW to PolyBlog? Start this Mystery from DAY ONE - new clues are added daily, Monday-Friday)

It's pretty simple...in theory.


As long as TIMMY is in this 2-Dimensional state, he should be able to pass through the HOLOBLOG to your side, Astral.

Once Timmy's on your side of the blog, just give him the Pop Tarts. He'll ignite them and try to open a stable WONDERLENS PORTAL. I know...he's not looking too stable himself, but I according to my calculations it should work.

Either that or it'll melt your EYEBALLS.

Ready?

Stand back, Astral!

I'm sending Timmy through.

Yeah. I'm still here.

Actually, I was sort of HOPING you'd talk me out of it. So...if we're such smart cookies, let's PROVE IT.

Let's RE-MAKE HISTORY.

I grabbed the last of the toaster pastries before the whole batch went SUPERFROSTED-NOVA. Let's see what "TIMMY" can do.

So - how exactly is this going to work? I've never traveled by, uh... SQUID-BOY before.

WAIT!

ASTRAL

- there's another way!

And YES...we robots pray all the time. You would too if you ever worked food service.

But honestly - there IS another way! We still have "TIMMY". He can open a WONDERLENS PORTAL. It'll take you to any place...any time period. I know, he's already got his hands...er...tentacles full....but he's our best shot.


This HAS to be safer than hurling yourself through a flaming wormhole activated by two guys who can't reset a WRISTWATCH without causing third degree burns.

Come ON, Astral. You're a SMART COOKIE. Think this through.

Astral...?

Tip of the Temple

(NEW to PolyBlog? Start this Mystery from DAY ONE - new clues are added daily, Monday-Friday)

________________________oOOo________________________



Oh, it's the real deal alright. And this is just the TIP of the TEMPLE, sweetie.

What I have to tell you next is going to FRY YOUR CIRCUITS! Well...hopefully not literally. I don't have any backup circuits on me...

...and the Fungilans are looking a little...restless.

By the way, I KNOW the Fungila Monster methods aren't quite... Safe & Sane - but what OTHER choice do I have?

I HAVE to get to ANCIENT EARTH. It's the only way I can find the HARD SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE I need.

Look, the Fungilans are starting to fire up the last of the Pop Tarts.

Wish me luck.

Better yet...do robots ever pray?

Astral - out

Thanks, ASTRAL.
I'm receiving the image you sent...
Wait a nanosecond...

For CRYOGENIC out loud!

I KNOW what that is!

At least...I know what that LOOKS like.

But it can't be.




What would a PYRAMID from ANCIENT EARTH, be doing GALAXIES away?

...on a previously UNINHABITED planet?

...MILES below the brand new WONDERLENS Amusement Park?

It can't be real!

Can it?

What the ?!

Was that photo supposed to be some kind of INKBLOT test, ASTRAL?

TELL me you're NOT pulling a VOIGHT-KAMPFF because for the LAST time, I DO have a personality...in fact, I have several terrabytes of personality, so stop trying to trip me up!

I mean, jeez, I saw BLADE RUNNER too, but that was just a MOVIE, for pixel's sake. And I may be a robot, but I DO have feelings.

So you can take your trippy little snapshots and....

...wait a nanosec.

Astral...Blog me another photo. Take it from a bit further back...and rotate it 180 degrees.

Sorry, I know I'm being an idiot.
And YES, I know I must sound completely paranoid, but you have to believe me. I've uncovered NEW INFORMATION. Or - VERY OLD information - depending on how you look at it.

And EARTH figures VERY HEAVILY into all this. Like this ANCIENT TEMPLE we just discovered.

Here, take another look, POLY. I'll blog you a holopic.


Look familiar?

Astral - out
