disorderly physics of light and dark
when the skysphere is even 1% transparent + rotation, interior objects
disappear under ordinary restricted viewing conditions.
in the same situation, with unrestricted viewing, glows appear - which
move, but without objects.
when the skysphere is set to zero transparency + rotation, interior
objects appear, even with restricted viewing conditions.
in the same situation, with unrestricted viewing, glows and objects

why do these things happen? they happen because of anomalies generated by
hacked objects that are coalescing when they're not supposed to - they're
jumbled, the commands are jumbled, the coordinates are jumbled, what's
there and what's not there is jumbled. I've seen objects disappear, not
over the edge, not out of world, and not returning to lost-and-found. I've
seen objects battered about or jumbled into one object or suddenly falling
to a ground that's not there or doesn't seem to be there. all this physics
sonic feedback between two performers (Alan Sondheim and Sandy Baldwin)
- I find this fascinating since the effects increase as the avatars
approach each other - as if they're entering danger/mating/territorial
