Far Beyond the Reach of Earth
Memes: Indenture, boredom, freedom, hedonism, escapism, experimentation, immortality, exploration
Main Stations: Almost anywhere with mesh access.
Longterm informorphs are not a bloc faction, but do represent a large slice of what remains of transhumanity. Infugees still waiting for bodies kill time waiting in whatever ways possible, as long as they haven’t been recruited into a digital career, or forced into a digital sweatshop. Some form (or join) activist political blocs to agitate for IM rights. Most are free to roam their local mesh, and continue to interact with the rest of transhumanity, but some are kept in simulspaces or virtual (or even inactive) storage, separated from the rest of the mesh. Some people seek out infolife, either for hedonism (game forever!), escapism, immense freedom of travel (including forking to distant solar systems to see if anything picks them up), digital experimentation (so many time dilation possibilities!), or because it often the safest and cheapest way to become effectively immortal.
