    Revamped Cosmos launching, some cool Xeno connection...

    I just thought I'd bring this up because one of the things I noticed reading the board is that a lot of people didn't like or were kind of saddened by the nature of the universe in the Xeno games.  One of the things I really liked about them was that Takahashi was clearly up on some of the latest science, as well as philosophers like Heidegger (which seems to be where he got a lot of the idea for the wave existence from).  As depressing as the idea of a higher level of existence that causes this universe to exist (as well as eventually be destroyed, unfortunately) is, it's pretty close to a lot of viable theories put forth by philosophers and physicists.  So, if you're into that stuff and want to see some of the scientific theories Takahashi incorporated, this would be a good show to check out.

    EDIT:  Also, I put this in the gaming forum because of the Xeno element, but on second thought it probably should have gone to general discussion.  Mods feel free to move it, of course.

    I am a huuuuge fan of Cosmos! I hope the remake is just as cool!

    I'll take care of moving the topic here! :D +1 to this thread! (Sorry I can't brain enough to lend a more intelligent response, but 4.4.14 is happening and using up all of my spoons.)

    This sounds incredible-- I'll have to remember to check it out!!
    I personally really like the structure of the Xenosaga universe, so finding out more about some of the actual science behind it sounds brilliant. (Plus, inspirational for my own sci-fi epic!) Thank you for sharing!
