Topic: Enlighten us - Halo Cryptum

Hello Greg Bear!
I would first and foremost like to say that I absolutely enjoyed Halo Cryptum. I've read it three times so far and I'm planning on reading it even more times. I devoured the book on my first read.

But I came here to hopefully get some answers. I would like to be enlightened on the subject of hard light. You spoke a lot about hard light in the book and it leaves me wondering. What does it look like? If ships's decor is made out of hard light, then what would it look like? Would it look like normal matter? It puzzles me because I'm unsure how someone could stand all that light and the same colour. I would be glad if you could answer or give us some hints.
Thank you in advance, looking foward to the sequel!

Hard light is in the Halo canon, and seems to work as an energy flow that assumes the nature of a material substance. The Forerunners have yet to enlighten me as to how they do this sort of thing!

Alright, I hope the Forerunners enlighten you soon! And us too! I'm very excited for Promordium and I hope it has a lot of madness in it!

Also I have been doing a concept for a forerunner MMO and I've been writing a fan fiction for an evolutions-like fan fiction e-book. It's going forerunner-flood related. When I'm done and when you're done perhaps you may be interested in reading it.

Good luck with Primodrium!
