テクトゥルフの秘めたる危険性に憂慮したマーティン・シューベルトの警告に相反する見解をハンク・ジョンソンが提示したよ。

ハンク・ジョンソン:
まず基本的に、私は自分自身を慎重派であると位置づけている。しかしながら、マーティン・シューベルトが困難を承知で憂慮を示したからにはそれに報い、敢えて反論を提示してみせようじゃないか。

我々が失念すべきでないことがある。テクトゥルフそれそのものに善悪はないということだ。あるいはエックスエム専門用語で言えば、安定状態も混沌状態もないということになるかな。それは製作者の意思や気質といったものによって特徴を得るものなのだ。

私自身の調査によれば、テクトゥルフとは数千年とは言わずとも過去数百年にわたるエックスエム史の一端を担ってきている。極めて強力なものである、ということは知られているが、その性質も多岐にわたっている。

リントン=ウルフのテクトゥルフは不安定で危険なものだったが、それは何ら驚くに値しない。リントン=ウルフ自身の特徴を備えていたのであればね。

サーティンマグナス・リアウェイクンで活用されるテクトゥルフ・モジュールに関してははっきりしたことはわからないが、その断片のように思える。私の理解するところでは、異常なエックスエム活動を引き起こし得る不安定要素を排除しているというわけだ。無論、同時期に行われることで、何かが起こる可能性はあるだろう。

私は様々な構築チームの活動を追ってきた。彼らの熱意や情熱、創造性が伝わってきたよ。私の見たところ、テクトゥルフ・モジュールとは、その地域のエックスエムを高め、利益へ還元するものに思える。

先に言及したとおり、これは敢えて反論を示したものだ。現時点で決定的な判断をするに足る情報を、私やシューベルトといった我々の誰かが握っているとは聞き及んでいないからね。

Normally, I consider myself one of the cautious ones. However, since +Martin Schubert has gone out on a limb, I'll return the favor and play devil's advocate for a minute.

Here's one possibility that we shouldn't overlook: Tecthulhus are by themselves neither good or bad -- or to use the XM term of art... stable or chaotic. They are, I suspect, defined by the will and temperament of their creators.

My own research indicates that Tecthulhus have been a part of our history with XM going back many hundreds of years, if not thousands. They are immensely powerful, this is known... but their nature has varied.

It doesn't surprise me that Lynton-Wolfe's Tecthulhu was an unstable and dangerous construct -- those are properties that define Lynton-Wolfe himself.

The Tecthulhu modules being used at 13MAGNUS: Reawakens seem to be fragments of a whole... I do not know the exact details, but my understanding is that they are limited to prevent destabilization that could result in Anomalous XM activity. (Of course, with 13 running at the same time, who knows what could happen).

I have been following the activities of the various builder teams. Their enthusiasm, passion and creativity is infectious. My guess is that these modules will build upon those qualities, enhancing XM in the area to the benefit of all.

Like I said... devil's advocate. I don't know that any of us (myself, Schubert or any others) have enough information to be definitive at this point.

HANK JOHNSON: A COUNTERPOINT TO SCHUBERT'S SKEPTICAL POV

Hank Johnson offers an alternative theory to balance out Martin Schubert's worrying post about the possible dangers of Tecthulhus.
