Venom: comets, Von Neumann goo, and the alien brown note

Decontamination protocols

NASA’s irl de-contamination measures. Private space industry without apparent government oversight.

Comets

Some of the oldest things in our solar system and maybe the oldest things that we can reach. Leftovers from early solar system formation. The possibility of finding the precursors of life. Delineating between comets and asteroids. Fuzzy definitions. “Extinct” comets. Scales & tails.

Von Neumann Goo

Sending out of infected ice-balls and hoping someone notices. Like a tree! Just send your reproductive material everywhere and who cares who it lands on or gives allergies to.

Evil Jeff Bezos

Thinly-written villains. Narcissism. Poorly designed humans and “saving” humanity.

Sound

And magnets! The frequencies in which MRI machines are loudest, and the way that doesn’t line up with Venom’s sonic sensitivities. Resonance frequencies and alien “brown notes.”

Symbiosis

Christopher’s surprise learning the distinction between the category of biological interactions that is symbiosis and its subcategories.

  • parasitism
  • commensalism
  • mutualism (Venom, but perhaps not his compatriots)
