the boy and girl are testing level 3, the clouds, when the kernel programmer dies.
when the beta testers test the first two levels, we see the social interactions.
when the boy and girl test the horizontal level, they’re creating it.
they go live. when the first players play the first two levels, we see the experience.
the kernel programmer is in the game, which now builds itself.
the boy and girl play antarctica (ring 1), so do all the testers and the live players, all at once. quantum baby steps.
