You had something like this when they invented perspective
Silly walks, rubber legs, extendable necks, MC Escher as cartoon, the way caterpillars move, worms, oozing, undulating, stretching, bouncing, bulging, expanding balloons, hallucinations of walls curving and rippling, clocks melting. Time-reel manipulation, sped up and slowed right down, similar manipulation of the gravity field, heavy, leaden, sunken down, loping, bouncing, floating off.
Tick tock between twin time states. Unstable physical construct. Lurching passage between two colliding universes, before the merge is made and contraries balanced and mutually locked. Imperative command-centre maintains both brain contact. Hold on!
Phase-shift. Breakthrough to provisional equilibrium condition. Attempt to establish traction, halting at first. Acceleration established. Cruising speed reached. Acceleration to Threshold. Breakthrough. Transistion to enhanced light body. Resources commandeered for light-craft. New abilities. Greater complexity and coherence. Collapsing time to reconstruct it at a different plane. Turning the time cube. Enhanced engine drives. Entry into contested zone. The eternal guard dogs bark. Fear enzyme flashes in the cortex display panel. Exit. Return to mapped zone. Approach void centre. Self almost collapsed in huge pressure of void gravity. Steer away.
Tilting the time cube=star of Lakshmi, the Rub el Hizb
chucking sounds together like some sort of large hadron collider
The crucible stage
move off-earth and gravity isn't a constant velcroing you to the horizontal anymore. You build the other body and learn how to operate it. Full rotational movement on every axis.
Why is this? It's not just a digital thing, it's there in photography too, it's Arnie's biceps in Commando, it's the condensation on a can of coke and those beautifully smooth metallic curved surfaces. With oil paint it's more about fabrics, the way they catch the light, the way they bunch and foldCGI vision can achieve superhuman clarity but it makes certain things look more impressive than others. Complex reflective surfaces, sweaty glistening muscles, ripples on a lake surface, and this preference effects the kind of images made.
