"twelve banshees, a chimera and two cthullus, cap'n."
"icebreakers, on the ready!" called the captain. "our first priority is taming those cthullus. He tapped a control on the center pedestal. "All hands this is the captain. we are underattack. ready your earplugs. avoid contact with bulkheads conjoined with the outer hull. that is all."

notes. shards are the remnants of posthuman psyche's set free by a hawking bomb. they fight entropy through shear reproductive force. eventually, they will lose the fight but that will take several biohuman lifetimes.

Well, there's hawking radiation invovling virtual particles evaporating the black hole. The entropy of black holes as it were. The HB involves accelerating the entropy of any singular entity. it's slow at first and speeds up exponentially. what happens to the entity as more and more of it evaporates? what's left of that already dislodged psyche? here there be dragons
