    It's not Klingon, nor Ithkuil, nor glyph.
    But I'm pretty sure to have seen these crumbs before.
    In T50YS maybe ?
    But the electrical storm, synapses firing still obsess me...

      I thought this too, but looked and couldn't find them.

        Or maybe a... DNA font ?

          If it's a font, a simple substitution, it's an extremely complicated one! They might just be decorations...?
          Also: do the crubs change in colour? For example, look at pages 705 and 785. In the second they are much lighter (in my copy, at least)...
          Maybe they sometimes detach from the center just because it's an arc, and they will be "more perfect" in the proper printing...

            aren't they on page 784 in your copy ?
            I can't be sure (without loosing another page ) that they are on page 785 too.

            edit : and more than a font, it could be a kind of stenography.

              Both 784 and 785 (very very light)! They're not symmetrical so I don't think it's some ink bleed-through...
              (I'm fortunate enough, I haven't lost pages until now!)

                Lucky you are

                After some research, I just hope that these crumbs are not asemic wrtiting

                  Maybe some kind of computerized/Narconized asemic writing from the future

                    Yes, some fonts are different colors or shades than others.

                        Everybody knows the tune "oh when the centre, go margin in..."

                        Well...


                        Good night, @ll :/

                          My pages have all been popping out. I'm stretching the limits of its binding trying to read every single word (pg. 63 was the first to go). Just looking at a few of them, side by side, they seem so random, or at least unique to themselves.

                            The bluetooth symbol kind of reminds of the crumbs.

                              The Paradise is Open video game made me think of this. The crumbs look like opened up meshes.

                              You've been listening to Kraftwerk, eh? Also, Paradise Open I think, not Paradise is Open. Could be wrong.
