The dust must have settled by now, and we can begin to appreciate just how autistic this abomination is and what has become of it. The book is enjoying a short-lived highlight on some book blogs and there are people dedicated to reading the entire thing: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpe3rJIwv3isMjyNJBzXC5Q

I think it's time to discuss what went so wrong but so right, what could have been done in the hindsight, et cetera. Anyways, alt-/lit/ thread.

Hypersphere is just a Tundra imitation by redditors who weren't here in time to infect the original

If I want one of these just to have a permanent view of the autism and shitposting of /lit/ should I get tundra or hypersphere? Which one tells a more coherent story? Which one is more interesting from a literary standpoint as weird avant-garde art?
>>
>>7672463
Hypersphere is just 700 pages of random meme spouting. It could as well just be randomly generated by a computer
>>
>>7672463
Tundra will always be the best, because it was the first and a completely spontaneous attempt. Every sequel and reiteration gets more redditlike and "i am a self conscious meme book"-y

How would one get ahold of tundra or hypersphere?
>>
>>7672495
But we barely know anything about Tundra save from some guys spouting the news AFTER it was finished. We don't even know if they had an integral or passing part in its creation.
>>
>>7672496
>le Sierpinski gasket maymay
But in all honesty, I don't know what fractals in literature would imply besides complexity and even this confuses me.
>>
>>7672617
What the fuck are you talking about? There were constant Tundra threads throughout the whole time it was being written.

They're all terrible. Whether it's Tundra, Hypersphere or Pictures of DFW, if you've contributed to or paid for those pieces of shit, then you're the cancer that's killing /lit/.

We should write a play. It's clear that we need some structure, some limitations—

What was the code for half off hypersphere? Does it work for/is there another one for tundra?

More interested in buying tundra tbqh as the original shitpost book

>>7676023
LULURC is the code for Hypersphere, iirc.

I wrote the atrocity which is Phallic Monsters in TLOTIAT 2, and even that pile of dicks is better than most of Hypersphere.
>>
>>7676183
LULURC is the code for everything on LULU, reddit
>>
>>7676690
Nah, TLOTIAT 2 is recognized as being the worst book to ever come from /lit/, including Pictures of DFW.
>>
>>7676719
TLOTIAT 2 was dogshit, but I sure put too much effort into the story I contributed. Last time I write anything in an open google doc, probably.

I gotta say, this was one of my favourite writing projects ever. Thank you, you hilarious cancerfaggots.

Maybe he is saying the content or scope of the text appears the same at various depths of analysis?
>>
>The typeface itself shows that there are implications and moral messages hidden throughout the book. This moralistic perspective of the book is something to keep in mind. It isn't common for a non-fiction work like this to be so enriching to the life of humans, but this is a masterpiece of a generation that can only be appreciated in its analysis and in the reader's pursuit of meaning.

Is this fucker for real? Am I getting memed?

>>7677766
Aw shit, I read more. I am absolutely being memed.

9/10 blog, would kek again.

What's everyone's favourite section (or chapter or whatever they were called) of Hypersphere?
Which one do you think is the weakest?

I might be biased but I still love the Wittgensteinesque poem w/ fights among numerals.

Just found it in the frontispiece of a conspiracy book.

Still torn on whether to give it time or not. I'm liking Tundra.

Is there any /pol/itians on lit? It would be great to have a lit-book about something like that, where there would or could be even some meaning somewhere in there.

>>7682642
Oh that's a part I wrote, did you like it ?

I was gonna write some shit about Dugin and Multipolarity in it but then I realised I would not only be debasing those things but myself :(

you should really read before you record egotist you trip up your speech too much

maybe copy+paste the text and break it up into easily read chunks on a word document

good work otherwise though your One Bottle recording was great

oh my god! what have they done!...

new treatment approach?

>>7682623
People often wrote in word and copy pasted after to ensure their passage was not deleted or altered
