Why is it Keter?
I'm kinda new to this GH-Class scenario, can anyone direct me to somewhere I could read more?
It's Keter because when released into the wild, it's difficult-to-impossible to contain by mundane means. That's not entirely a property of the anomaly that it grows on anything with enough nutrients, but also because duckweed is particularly good at invading other ecosystems and particularly difficult to remove once it gets a foothold.
GH-Class is the environmental cataclysm. The world and organic life isn't necessarily destroyed, but a mass extinction has occurred and now the earth is covered in all this duckweed.
Yeah the only thing that controls mundane duckweed blooms is that it is very nutrient dependent. Take that away…
I would have called it an SK-class species dominance shift for consistency, though, personally.
Like the others, I'm amused by carp memes, and I like the Foundation using natural methods to contain something this dangerous. There were a few too many "Prussian carp"s in there by the end, and I'm mystified by that final addendum, but it's not enough for me not to upvote.
I didn't want to just use "carp" because generally people think of common carp when they read "carp."
Okay, that was about the only explanation I could come up with. My question then is, "What's it got to do with the skip?" Is mass ingestion of this anomalous weed making the carp smarter? Is the Foundation gradually trading one anomaly for another?
It's a lot simpler than that.
Is this your thing? Are you going to be that dude what writes about carp?
If so, I'm 1000% okay with that. Bring on the Special Carp Procedures.
