description Description EN

"Willing suspension of disbelief" is a vital SFnal nerd skill: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the poet and author, coined the phrase in his Biographia Literaria in 1817:
" ... a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith"

film poster

Fantastic Voyage was a 1966 film, the premise of which required the disbelief of the watcher to be suspended
somewhat further than a basic science education will allow (Isaac Asimov, known
to nerds as 'the good doctor' apparently wrote a small book of the film which
attempted to ameliorate some of the offences against science )

The story was of a Cold War USSR scientist, Dr.Benes, who discovered how to shrink objects and people.
He escaped to the West, but an attempted assassination left him unconscious with a blood clot
in his brain.To save his life, a submarine and crew were miniaturized and injected
into Benes at the C.M.D.F. (Combined Miniature Deterrent Forces). They then
had exactly 60 minutes to destroy the clot with their onboard laser...
After the hour elapsed,both the submarine and its crew would
inevitably return to normal size,wherever they happened to be ...

Nerd suspension of disbelief can accept F.T.L. travel, wormholes, artificial gravity,
even (at a bit of a stretch) time travel, but shrinking humans to a size
where they and their submarine (subphlebeme?) can whizz through
blood vessels ? No, defying the square cube law. is too much !

In keeping with the Fantastic Voyage theme, this cache is small,
this text is small, and even the code used for the co-ords is
a small thing from another small thing. WB
