Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Transcript For Strip 1994

Bok explains it all:

Bok: In the 11th Century of the space age, the city of Novo Paolo, a.k.a. ‘bubbleopolis,’ is a shining jewel of free humanity.

Thirty million souls inhabit this artificial, prosperous world, unburdened by kings, or presidents, or anything resembling a monopoly state.

Of course, no state doesn’t mean no law. Here, the law is a matrix of contractual agreements, based on a covenant all residents are asked to sign.

Like the old English common-law, our law develops organically from decisions rendered by reputable arbitrators, one dispute at a time.

Sure, there will always be those who resort to violence to get what they want. This is why self-defense is regarded as not only a right, but a duty.

Murders, rapes and robberies are fairly rare here, as those who do such things are quickly removed from the population. or existence.

Now, one might reasonably ask, ‘without a state, how is the law enforced?’ Or more to the point, how are disputes peacefully settled?

To answer that question, please allow me to tell you a story about how one very major dispute was settled recently.

I like to call this story, ‘The trial.’
