Left it late again, but at least it’s the holidays.
That laser gun is the most science-fictiony thing that has appeared in the story. Or at least, the most sci-fi. I don’t think it’s particularly far-fetched, though. I believe current technology doesn’t allow the construction of lasers powerful enough to use as handheld weapons. Within the world of ‘The Experiment’, the technology exists; it’s just expensive.
I hope this chapter clears a few things up. If not, worry not, for I intend to include a better explanation in a future chapter.
However, I have completely run out of chapters, so I’m going to have to get writing.
