The existance of additional dimensions beyond what we can perceive was not what we had expected. Through countless breakthroughs of science and technology, a new resource had been made available to us. What then immediately unfolded was as written in the lore of all science fiction.
It was naivé to believe that writers would predict the breakthroughs in medical, biological, societal adjustments, and every other change that has occured over the past 3000 years yet somehow not predict the self destruction of the human race. How cliché it is to now live during a period where this new resource had been harnessed carelessly. Everything we know has been lost.
It is time to rebuild. This time, it will be different
Damator was discovered by Ulloque and Slao while they were running experiments on micro black holes in a lab off the coast of Singapore. As they continually artificially reduced matter down in size to increase density, they began noticing a shift in the data. Something was changing the way gravitational forces were acting. Through these experiments, Ulloque and Slao came to the conclusion that some extremely large amount of mass must exist nearby, but it was not consistent.
None of this made any sense. It was as perplexing as the notion that matter acts differently when observed.
All that was known at the time was that this new discovery was massive.
The work of Ulloque and Slao eventually led to the realization that mass is traveling through another dimension and appearing and disappearing within our perception of reality. This mass was coined as Damator.
Damator continually oscillates between dimensions. To understand this, lets imagine ourselves in a two dimensional world -- the floor. We can move around on the floor, but we can't move above or below it. We are bound to the floor. Now imagine a rubber ball is bouncing on the floor. Every few moments, the ball touches the floor and therefor exists within the dimension we are on. The ball bounces off and returns back a second later.
Damator bounces through our three dimensional reality just as the rubber ball bounces on the floor. For just brief moments, damator is available to us. It can be measured, captured, and harvested.
Raw Damator exists within the universe perpendicular to our reality. To collect it, we must alter the direction of its oscillation. This process requires a large amount of energy, which can be eased by aiming for harmonic balance. The initial damator required years of brute force to obtain. Extremely strong structures were built to tame the instability of damator over many years. But once that initial damator was harvested, we were able to enfuse it into a Ulloque Rod, which enabled a new era for civilization.
The Ulloque Rod enabled large amounts of damator extraction by creating harmonies between its own damator frequency and the frequency of the damator being collected. This helped align the mass, reducing the instability, and forcing it into a Slao Dish where it could be stabilized.
Once stabilized, the damator could be controlled.
Damator quickly became a high value resource due to its power density and ability to infuse and enfuse materials. Small quantities of Damator could yield a source equivalent to a nuclear reactor in power while equivalent to a small cat in size. Furthermore, later discoveries found that changing the direction of oscillation of damator allowed it to oscillate across something in our three dimensional perception which fundamentally altered the characteristics of the materials within it. In some cases, A Midas Touch.
The most basic application of Damator is Trong Refinement. Trong Refinement of Damator yields an assortment of individual power cells. These power cells varied in power density and are able to be converted into power sources. These power sources were applicable to large ships as much as they were applicable to large pieces of equipment, small gadgets, and even individual devices.
The power to mass ratio of some refined damator was high enough that it enabled a new possibility of space flight and rocketry. The earliest developments allowed travel throughout the solar system. Damator based reactors enabled the first large scale orbital space station, Salacia.
When the direction of Damator oscillation was first experimented with, researchers began to see transformations they never anticipated. Damator that continually moves through a material in our three dimensional reality will alter the material's properties as the Damator becomes infused within it. This process is referred to as Damator Infusion.
When materials are infused, they begin to alter their fundamental properties. This was the modern day equivalent of the invention of Steel.
Damator comes in varying types, each with their own characteristics. Each type of damator modifies material properites in a different way. As scientists and engineers discovered new types of damator within our solar system, more and more revolutionary materials were able to be created.
The act of materializing damator into something in our three dimensional world became known as Enfusion. The first step in optimizing damator collection was to utilize it to collect itself. To do so, Ulloque developed a way to create a physical rod out of damator that existed entirely in our three dimensional world. Additional enfusion opportunities included damator cable and lohming filters.
The latest application of Damator was to begin to use it to alter our physical reality. Damator allows us to alter the relationship between energy, mass, and velocity. By changing the relationship, we unlocked the ability to accelerate small quantities of mass to extremely high velocities with much less energy. The coefficients of mass and energy (E = mv²) were altered. While active, these new devices followed a different rule, (E = m²v). This process was called Mass Velocity Flux.
Additional technology allowed for a varying amount of flux, modifying the energy required to accelerate a given mass. The ability to fine tune the relationship between mass, velocity, and energy gave way for extraordinary exploration missions.
